A new report from the National Center for Transgender Equality is the first of its kind -- the first comprehensive study of discrimination against transgender individuals in the United States -- and the news is sobering for the community and its allies.
“Researchers surveyed more than 6,400 people on a wide range of areas like education, health care, and housing. They found discrimination was particularly pronounced for people of color. Thy also found 41 percent of transgendered people attempted suicide, compared to only 1.6 percent of the general population.” (KARE)
The report provided plenty of numbers to sort through. Feminist website Jezebel expands on some of the more prominent areas of discrimination.
“47% reported being fired, not hired, or not promoted because of their gender identity, 29% reported mistreatment by police, and of those who identified as trans in grades K-12, 78% reported harassment at school. And an alarming number said they'd been denied medical care.”
The study also found transgender people are five times more likely to live in poverty than the general population --- but The Advocate says not all the information is negative. The report found family support is an effective safeguard against suicide, and...
“...while fewer transgender respondents ages 18-24 reported being in school compared to the general population, some 22% of respondents aged 25-44 said they were in school, compared to 7% of the general population, which suggested a commitment to completing their education against the odds.”
The website Questioning Transphobia says the hard data gives transgender individuals and allies the information needed to fight discrimination.
“It finally gives us a focus on the concrete obstacles that trans people face, as well as how these obstacles differ on the basis of race. There is no rational objection to the idea that institutionalized cissexism (Anchor: the belief that transgender people are inferior) is a real force that harms people on a daily basis.”
Finally, a writer for the American Prospect highlights the importance of the study -- especially since the official government census doesn’t have any questions about gender identity or expression.
“The consequences of not being counted, of being invisible, is that no one knows who constitutes the transgender community... or what their challenges or needs are. The many costs to transgender people include the fact that they are allotted little if any funding or resources... That's even true of resources spread within an LGB community that often forgets the ‘T.’”
