Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”

Anonymous said: I was hoping you could answer a question for me or point me to a resource. I recently started a new job and two of my coworkers told me they have chronic illnesses. I've read about what not to say and what to say when it's a friend, but that's not really applicable in that situation. I'm worried I came off as insensitive. Do you have any advice on how I could do better in the future?

Hey anon, I can certainly try to answer your question. If any of my other spoonies have advice send it my way and I’ll publish it. 

I’d like to know how you think you already came of as insensitive, because that sounds like a specific situation so I need details before I can tell you how to reconcile that. However, in general, here are some tips:

  • Always believe them if they have to go home early or sit down for a while. Believing someone with a chronic illness is a basic form of respect we don’t always get.
  • If your job has any more physical tasks, offer to pick them up. 
  • Don’t say “are you sure you can handle that?” in regards to their illness. If they’re bad employees that sentence can make sense, but otherwise this is just super condescending. 
  • DO NOT BY ANY MEANS MENTION YOUR SEVENTH COUSIN’S HAIRDRESSER THAT HAS THE SAME ILLNESS AND WAS CURED WITH WHATEVER. THIS IS THE WORST.

In general, though, you don’t have to treat them like they have chronic illness. You have to treat them with the same respect as other coworkers, which includes trusting what they say and trusting their judgment.

If they start having more conversations with you about their illnesses, you can ask questions about whether or not work is hard for them and if you can do anything to make it easier, ie trading tasks. But if it was just the one mention, don’t bring it up all the time. It’s just a thing people live with.

Other spoonies, anything else?
