14:05 Question of the Week

"In your experience in the trans community have you ever felt as though the trans community works against itself in ways such as it seems like there is a hierarchy in place. I belong to two support groups and some of my trans sisters that are a little more affluent seem to act as though transition is a competition like who is prettier, who has what surgery before who, and it seems like if you don't do as they do they really dont have the time of day for less fortunate sisters. I hope i don't sound like i am complaining because i am not, as i am not rich but i am not poor either. But how can the trans community advance itself and for that matter advance all glbt people if we cant even get along with each other? "
