Blog Entry: Uncomfortable
Uncomfortable Well, last week I came out to my school. Hooray! (Or not... Depends on how you look at it.)
Well, I found out that my school is now a part of Stonewall thanks to a lesbian couple that work there so hopefully homophobia will be taken more seriously than it was last year. (Last year, I actually had the support manager tell me that what I was going through was a phase. Thanks for that! =.=)
They ended up organising a Q&A about me being trans with my tutor group which didn't really solve anything. I still got asked the same stupid questions whilst doing my work and I still facepalmed at them.
One thing they did say in the meeting was that I couldn't use the mens bathroom because "it would make the other students uncomfortable". Really? So it's better for me to feel absolutely terrible and uncomfortable as hell (I'm actually debating not using the bathroom at all in school.) then for a couple of transphobes to get pissed off? It's not like I'd be doing anything in there other than what you'd normally do in a bathroom anyway! *facepalm*
Although I'm more confident now than ever before, it still annoys me no end that they want me to use the girls bathroom. Why?! -_-
