25.3% of transgender adults reported food insufficiency compared to just 8.3% of cisgender people

'Food is so central to all that we do'

Even when food is available, a lack of respect and even open discrimination can create barriers for transgender individuals, the report said, quoting the experience of Alex, a Black, pansexual transgender man from Los Angeles.

"I would try to access the church food banks, it was difficult. Like, you go in there, and they just have this look on their face of like disgust – you really don’t wanna deal with them. You don’t wanna deal with that," he said. "You already emotionally defeated going into that situation, and then to get all of that, I was like I’d rather turn around and go back, figure this out a whole ‘nother way."

Worries about physical and emotional safety are common for transgender people and can stop them from getting food even when it's available, said Maria Roman-Taylorson, vice president of The TransLatin@ Coalition, a non-profit created by trans Latina women that serves trans and gender non-conforming individuals. It can range from cultural disrespect, which she termed "microaggression," to physical violence.

I think these individuals are looking for those looks going to church food banks. Just a guess.

If they can't afford to eat, can't they just raise some grocery money by having a bake sale?

If you aren't hungry enough to put up with a little derision, you aren't really hungry.

If you’re in CA, all you do is google “LGBT food banks”. Pulls up a bunch. These individuals are perpetual victims looking for reactions.

Have transgendered people ever had any good experiences in life? Or is being trans only one long series of aggressions, victimizations, misunderstandings, insults, and shunnings?

Funny how that trans Latina in OP's post has had every procedure possible to morph into a Caucasian Orange County trophy wife.

"Transgender adults are having a much more difficult time than the overall population in getting adequate nourishment during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new study.

The Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law report, published this month, finds that transgender adults were three times as likely than other adults to face food insufficiency – defined as not having enough to eat in the last seven days – between July and October.

The gap was even more severe for transgender people of color, who were six times as likely to experience food insufficiency as cisgender white adults, according to the Williams Institute, which conducts independent research on sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy."

Autistic people don’t pick up on social cues. They will never understand that they’re mentally not knowing when they’ve crossed the line. They will throw temper tantrums when not getting their way. They need to be ignored and shunned, not catered to.

Because supermarkets won’t serve them apparently. lol. These are abnormal individuals who can’t cope with reality. The medical community is going to be sued out of existence for trans advocacy in 30 years. Mark my words.

82% of the general population couldn't afford to buy more food.

77% of transgender people couldn't afford to buy more food.

Other Covid food insecurity studies have consistently said households with children have had the most difficulty accessing food, I believe the elderly were next in line but I don't remember, I guess all of those studies are wrong.

To avoid food insufficiency, why not carry a snack purse?

"...quoting the experience of Alex, a Black, pansexual transgender man from Los Angeles."

Can anyone tell me why it was necessary to include "pansexual" as a descriptor of this person? Am I to seriously believe that ANYONE has ever been denied food-- or indeed anything-- because they are pansexual? How would anyone know that about them? Do they enter the food banks wearing signs around their necks that say, "I fuck anything that moves"?

Yeah R35 it is really galling that a man can claim victimhood. Men have always held all the power throughout history. They have the gall to claim after all the year's women have been enslaved by men (and we only had the right to own property and have our own credit without a male signature in the 1970s) they have it much harder. Fucking assholes.

Considering every trans person I’ve ever heard of has a go fund me to beg for money at all times, you’d think they’d be eating well.
