For years the only way I could cope with being trapped in a males body I have abused myself. Having a penis and testicles makes me sick, it makes me feel deformed and nasty. I realize I have a choice not to abuse myself and I honestly hate it! But what am I suppose to do when the doctor refuse to treat me or take my situation serious??
The following medical records, etc. clearly shows that TDCJ don’t care. I have tried to pull my penis off! I pulled it so hard I felt a pop and extreme pain shot into my stomach and I started crying and throwing up. I can’t explain why I have to do this. I told Dr. Greene and everyone I’ve talked to – and I was told: TDCJ cannot treat GD! As long as I don’t kill myself, they can’t do nothing.
Since they refuse to, I’m asking you to help me change TDCJ’s harsh policies that deny trans prisoners medical care! Your support makes a huge difference and it could save a transgender inmates life. I have stopped abusing myself. Now I wear clothes I’ve designed to hide my genitals, and I wear gloves when I have to use the restroom which does help me – But other trans women are cutters and have castrated themself and committed suicide!
We are going to end this abuse and I hope you will truly be involved and take a strong stance against TDCJ! Your voice matters and I’m asking you to make my battle yours and speak out and denounce TDCJ’s anti-trans policies! My goal for this month is: I want 20 people to call the Attorney General Office of Texas and the US Justice Department on behalf of all transgender inmates! Together, we can make a difference that will save lives and give transgender inmates hope and equality!
I ask that anyone that is reading my letter to imagine the pain I feel! I have tortured myself for over 20 years! I have 100’s of cuts on my body, I have tried to hang myself and cut the veins in my arms. I know how bad the pain you are imagining is – because I have felt it for a long time.
