Det var en ret vild oplevelse og en meget lang dag.
Peggy Cohen-Kettenis (fra Holland)præsenterede de transkønnet med omvendt titel :O
Trans-mand= Født hankøn.
Trans-kvinde = Født hunkøn.
Det rigtige er:
Trans-mand = FTM = female to male transition.
Trans-kvinde = MTF = male to female transition.
Jeg finder det selvfølgelig meget kritisabel at så stor en "ekspert" ikke har styr på dette, men bortset fra det var det meget interessant at høre om deres erfaringer i holland, for ikke at tale om deres tilbud til de transkønnet.
Stefan Arver (fra Sverige) Var klart inviteret af taktiske årsager, Sverige holder man nemlig fast i de multidisciplinære teams og vi skulle bruge meget energi på at trække noget fornuftig op af hatten hos ham. Deprimerende at lytte til.
De helt store HELTE i går var klart:
Julia Ro Robotham, Linda Thor Pedersen & Helle Jacobsen
Især Julia Ro Robotham var fantastisk og kniv skarp hele vejen igennem, jeg ville nødig starte en diskusion med hende og da slet ikke på engelsk 😉
Vi er så heldige at nogle fantastiske tilstedeværende folk fra salen har optaget "anden halvdel" som foregik på Dansk og hvis man vil prøve at forstå hvad der sker på området pt., eller var forhindret i at komme og gerne vil se med, kan de findes lige her:
