I’m about to start my new county job in a week & I’m trying to change my name/gender on my Social Security card / DL before I have to submit my paperwork.
I already “legally” changed my name so that’s all lined up but now my gender is an issue! I need a physician to sign some papers saying I’m “completely transitioned” & the form is so fucked up I’m getting anxiety just thinking about the future interactions I must endure.
Fuck the govt for only allowing a physician enmeshed in a westernized healthcare system to determine what my gender is in their “professional opinion”
MY GENDER IS NOT YOUR OPINION
Gender identification is complete when I say it is, no one can determine how I identify based on their perception of my body or characteristics.
They’re basically saying you can only change your gender if you’re going to line up with the hetero gender-conforming binary they already laid out for you.
WTF DOES MY DEMEANOR HAVE TO DO W MY GENDER IDENTITY!?!
GENDER DOES NOT EQUAL SEX - I DO NOT IDENTIFY AS MALE OR FEMALE
If these fuckers get in the way of me having a smooth transition (ha) into this job I will destroy them
Any advice/help from ppl who have gone thru this process in Monterey County/ the Bay / CA before would be greatly appreciated cuz I still need a “licensed physician” that I feel safe with to sign my papers even though I am not on hormones & am still read as ‘female’ more often than not
