Did you know that at the Orillia public library there is a tampon dispenser in the MEN’S bathroom? No wonder we’re all confused! LOL!!
Yes, we live in quite a civilized place here in Ontario, Canada. That decision to include tampons in the library came about since there are trans men in the area who may still need them.
As Emily suggests, I too recommend councilling. I recently went to North Simcoe Muskoka Trans Health Services in Orillia to talk to a therapist. I felt reassured that I’m on the right track and was encouraged NOT to feel ashamed about my identity, but to be cautious nonetheless depending on the community.
So, I’ve embraced my local 2S-LGBTQA+ community where I can be the real me without fear. We go out often to events where “Barb” can strut her stuff and pee wherever she wants to. There’s nothing like strength in numbers!
All the best!
