Mary Bassett: Why your doctor should care about social justice
[ DETERMINANT NOT JUST FOR HEALTH, BUT ALSO POOR HEALTH ] the structural inequities embedded in the world's political and economic organizations, inequities that make marginalized people more vulnerable. These same structural problems exist in the United States today, and as New York City's Health Commissioner, Bassett is using every chance she has to rally support for health equity and speak out against racism. "We don't have to have all the answers to call for change," she says. "We just need courage." //&! - Doctors are failing to help people with gender dysphoria - http://www.bmj.com/content/352/bmj.i1694 - via https://redd.it/4cr1cr //&!

Services for LGBT young people will just disappear | Kirstie Brewer | Society | The Guardian
Cuts to council youth budgets are putting vital specialist provision for vulnerable youngsters in jeopardy [...] “Youth provision has always been the Cinderella service and LGBT youth provision is its poor relation,” [...] Overall, youth services directly provided by councils in England have been cut by 36% since 2011 – from £877m to £561m total expenditure, according to figures provided by Kate Green, shadow minister for women and equalities. “Councils are facing impossible decisions about youth services as the government slashes their revenue support grants by over 50%, regardless of the cost to individuals and communities,” //&!

"Besorgte Eltern" und ihr seltsamer Protest gegen Sexualkundeunterricht - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Das Bündnis "Besorgte Eltern" geht bundesweit gegen den Sexualkundeunterricht auf die Straßen. Unterstützung bekommt die Gruppe von radikalen Christen, rechten Verschwörungstheoretikern und Homophoben. [...] Anja Henningsen, die an der Uni Kiel Juniorprofessorin für Sexualpädagogik ist, geht davon aus, dass die Elternaktivisten den Aufklärungsunterricht ganz bewusst missverstehen. "Ein guter Sexualkundeunterricht greift die Themen auf, die im Alltag der Kinder und Jugendlichen eine Rolle spielen. Es ist hanebüchen, so zu tun, als wäre er damit eine Werbeveranstaltung für Pornografie und homosexuellen Lebensstil", sagt sie. In Wahrheit führe die Elternbewegung einen "subtilen Kampf gegen Homosexualität". [...] In einem Beitrag wehren sich die "Besorgten Eltern" gegen die Gender-Theorie - denn diese Lehre "unterstellt, dass jede sexuelle Orientierung gleichwertig ist und von der Gesellschaft akzeptiert werden muss".
