My name is Beck Martens, I’m genderqueer, and I’m directly impacted by attacks on reproductive rights. But the language of the pro-choice movement doesn’t recognize me. That’s why I and activist friends Alice, a cis-woman and Calliope, a trans-woman, are asking NARAL and Planned Parenthood to commit to trans* inclusivity in all future campaigns.
Do Transgenderoids really have a dog in the abortion fight? No, but there probably aren’t enough of them to bully non-supporters on the scale that they would like. So, they have to build coalition with more established bullies.
