disability and the trans woman: we belong in “the community” too

The “trans community” is highly dependent on access to the commons for inclusion. Like it or not, the internet really doesn’t do much in terms of bringing us together because invariably trying to step from the internet into reality leads to “who the hell are you?” unless you’re one of the 5-7 “community leaders” who are more critical and central voices. For the record, i am fine not being a particularly critical or central voice, nor do i have any desire to be “more important” or anything like that. At the same time, however, the internet does let voices traditionally silenced in and excluded by the “trans community” speak, as it’s access to a different commons.
