10 Transgender People Shattering Entertainment's Glass Ceiling - Page 5

I see a lot of trans women who get really upset whenever trans men are in the media because “once again, it’s all about men” and “trans women never get positive representation”.

But who are the people getting acting jobs and representation? Who are the people who get to speak out? I’m not saying that I don’t want to see trans women— trans representation is important. But it took me so fucking long to come to terms with my identity because trans men don’t exist in media. We’re just as rarely characters as trans women, and we’re certainly not out actors.

I’m just. Really tired of people acting as though trans men hog all the representation when the REAL PEOPLE who are being lauded as important trans representation in the entertainment industry are trans women who are directors and models and actresses— and two trans men, one a porn star-cum-educator and the other a misogynist asshole.

I would argue that caring for your body in traditional ways- like eating a healthy diet, exercising, and taking your vitamins- may be the least important part of your health. (I know! Radical idea coming from a doctor!)

This may sound shocking to you. After all, you’ve probably watched many other doctors get on television to tell you that your health is all about using food as medicine, getting enough exercise, and avoiding bad habits. I’m not suggesting that those aren’t great health-inducing behaviors. What I’m saying is that it doesn’t matter how great your diet is if your body is flooded with stress hormones! No amount of kale is going to counterbalance the toxic effects of high levels of cortisol and epinephrine on your body.

So what’s the most important part of your health? The nature of your thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. When your thoughts, beliefs, and feelings are positive, relaxation responses are activated, healing hormones like oxytocin, dopamine, nitric oxide, and endorphins are released, and the body’s natural self-repair mechanisms are activated, allowing the body to do what it does best-heal itself.

what’s that? It’s healthier to love your body than to spend every minute hating it and wanting to fundamentally change it but being stressed that you can’t actually change your body into some chiseled piece of perfectly oiled machinery like the media sells us?
