Take Action Against DART Transphobia

[I am embarrassed to say that I am only slightly aware of the details of this story.  Particularly since those details I have heard are very disturbing.  I will try to learn more and post that information.  I am under the impression that the woman being harassed is post-SRS and several years post transition, had all her paper work legally changed and that some bureaucrat decided to act like a right wing Christo-Nazi and change her sex designation back to male and return her paper work to her original male name.

We as post-SRS women are suddenly finding ourselves vulnerable to this sort of BS because the data banks and access to any and all information regarding us is just a few mouse clicks away.  all it takes is a Christo-fascist, self rightious bigot with motivation to deny us employment, privacy and ruin our lives.]

What if?

What if you woke one morning to find your employer had changed your name?

What if they altered your legal documents changing your gender marker from female to male?

What if as a woman, your employer made you dress in clothes of the opposite sex, made you use the wrong restroom and addressed you as sir?

What if your employer did not allow you to have routine medical procedures because they now insist that you are not whom your legal documents previously said you were?

What if your employer did these things and then threatened your job, your pension, the very foundation of your family home, if you asked anyone for help?

This is not a nightmarish Orwellian big brother scenario. This is happening now, today, to Ms T DART, a transgender employee of the Dallas Rapid Regional Transit, silenced by intimidation into anonymity.

Are you a resident of these Texas counties?

• Collin County
• Dallas County
• Denton County
• Ellis County
• Kaufman County
• Rockwall County
• Tarrant County (TRE operates in Dallas and Tarrant counties)

Then this could also happen to you regardless of how secure you feel you are.

WE MUST NOT ALLOW THIS TO BE A REALITY FOR Ms. T DART.

Please email your city council members and elected Dart representative and tell them that you will not allow this to stand. Tell your representatives at your cities DART board meetings that we live in a country that is built on the promise that all people are equal and everyone has the right to life liberty and justice.

We do not live in a country that allows employers to influence judges to reverse court findings in a way that strips us of our very identities.
