This post is in response to the above video, please watch video before reading post.
In a very unlikely turn of events, a trans person documented a trans suicide. The Trans community and above all the Trans Politic is always on HIGH alert to quickly cover up the suicide of someone within its cloistered ranks. None the less we are beginning to see studies coming out documenting the high rates of post transition suicides.
I cannot help but feel this trans female's reason for video documentation of the suicide of another young trans female is, while I believe she genuinely does feel sorry for her trans sisters tragic demise, she NEEDED to make this video in effort to convince herself there's reason enough to live. I suppose this, not based solely on this video alone, although this video is compelling enough on its own right.
I do applaud her her honesty. A BIG no no under the Trans Articles of Conduct. Unlike the thousands of trans videos that do little in the way of practicing transparency. Videos that instead, a little too eagerly boast of new improved lives all because of the liquid substance found in a tiny vial. I'm reminded of an AbFab episode where the mother is struggling to lose weight. Her daughter says to her "Look, mum. All you've got to do is eat less and take a bit of exercise." To which the mother responds "Sweetie, if it was that easy, everyone would be doing it."
I think the post transition suicides, post transition eating disorders, post transition depression, post transition dysphoria, post transition cutting, post transition social anxieties, post transition sexual dysfunction, post transition relationship problems, post transition general unhappiness etc all go to the heft that transition not only isnt not "that easy", but more over that there isnt any gold at the end of the queer rainbow. For far too many, there isnt even fucking rainbow.
