7 Ways Abuse Affects the Transgender Community
Posted by Allion on April 14th, 2021
One of the most basic principles of being in a relationship is to love and accept someone for who they are. Now, we don’t mean accepting unhealthy tendencies, like a quick temper and being overly critical, but more the unique things that make someone special. Unfortunately, our world is not always the most accepting and kind toward the things that make someone unique, especially when it comes to people who don’t conform to traditional gender identities. But to love someone for who they are, especially anyone who identifies as transgender, is to love them for living their truth, and that is so important.
We at One Love believe everyone deserves a healthy relationship and know that every person has a place in our movement for change. And while the nuances of a relationship can differ depending on how you identify, marginalized communities may face specific challenges. So, we’re here to talk about the seven ways that abuse can affect the transgender community.
1. Higher risk for abuse.
2. They face discrimination and struggle to be accepted.
3. Their identity or sexuality can be used against them.
4. Healthy relationship models are hard to find.
5. Blurred gender roles may make it harder to identify abuse.
6. Limited access to resources and help.
7. Higher suicide rates.
Regardless of gender, orientation, ability, race, age, religion or class, we know that relationship abuse can happen to anyone. One Love believes in educating everyone about healthy and unhealthy relationships, regardless of what those relationships look like. If you or someone you know is experiencing relationship abuse, you should seek help immediately. More content here.
