I can so relate to your experience.

A few months ago I arrived at Kaiser Permanente Oakland for a lab test.

When I checked in at the nurse's station she as loudly as possible said me, I don't understand, how can a woman have a prostate gland? When I didn't answer, she did it again

I reported it and like usual absolutely nothing happen and it never will.

This is not an isolated event for me but a pattern of behavior, of treatment that is completely foreign from what I have been told by White Trans Women.

I don't know anywhere to go or anyone to trust anymore.

Thank you. I so rarely get to read a succinct insight that reflects challenging aspects of my lived experience. I moved to the Bay area hoping to find less of the transmisogyny you describe, less intersectional racialized class within the regional LGBTQ+ world. What a fool I was.

I hear and feel you. It is unfortunately so common that I am numb to it, noticing only when Whites who are triggered say the most unhinged comments (Karens) becauses they are so uncomfortable, threatedn my my sharing public space with them.
