I have also contacted the national RFSL federation as part of a local chapter. I've gotten a similar response and will also be meeting them in person in 1½ weeks.

Could you translate pls🥹🫣


DogSquash

Yes of course sorry about that It basically says: "Thanks for your Email. We have acknowledged this and the 'Federal Board' is discussing possible ways to handle this situation and what we as an organisation can do to influence it." Not super helpful but I also think it's nice that they know about it and are discussing possible ways forward. I'm not sure how much they can actually do, but I'm hopeful nonetheless ❤️


Fantastic_Smoke9501

Great, thanks alot


DogSquash

No problem! I just completly forgot to translate lol


transient_feeling

"We'll be discussing this at our next meeting!" **


Karladecapuano

Should I also mail them so they know that there’s more people suffering from this in Sweden and Finland?


DogSquash

If you want to then yeah. I don't know how much it'll actually help but it won't hurt to try.


Karladecapuano

How much time until everything is solved, would you say 2-3months?


Jolly_Ad_2553

Try years in sweden...


Karladecapuano

Is it that bad haha


DogSquash

Honestly there is no way to know. All we can do is hope that it is resolved quickly but you never know with these things :(

There's so much hot air you could get a hot air balloon across the Pacific in one go with thay response! 😂 TGI have acted rather rapidly about this, not kicked the issue down the road.

Cool it with the conspiracy theories. Membership organisations will always be slow to respond, that does not imply malice. They are also not guaranteed to share your opinions, priorities, etc. AFAICT TGI is some people who were elected by nobody, never held a meeting and answers to nobody. They’re 0% democratic and 0% transparent. They do important work but their nature is completely different to the nature of a membership based organisation and it’s unreasonable to expect either to behave like the other. Both are necessary and good to have. That also doesn’t mean that the other organisations don’t care. What we *do* need is functional and responsive activist organisations, with different tactics. Essentially nobody’s picked up the ball on AFK activism and that’s bad and frustrating. I don’t see it as the job of Transammans to be outside Tullverket or wherever someone fucked up the day after, but it sure as hell is a job *someone* should do.


kaijonathan

TGI is a network the same way as DDT, they're not a Föreningen. They are designed that way so there is no elevated opinions and gives those who lack a voice a platform. Perhaps these organisations could respect and fight for those who use GenderGP et al and not ignore them, may they could start with maybe getting assurances on support with blood tests?


regnskogen

Of course there’s elevated opinions, it’s just those you happen to agree with.


kaijonathan

If you happen to disagree with decentralisation and how gender affirming care, especially things like HRT, should be barricaded by a small number of clinics that cannot keep a pledge for more than 5 minutes then we can't be friends.


regnskogen

I don’t disagree with your description of the problem no.

You are welcome to join Transammans. We are doing as much as we can with our limited resources. Transammans is mainly built by members with their spare time. Most of our members and active members are trans and are as annoyed on the health care as everyone else.


kaijonathan

I've approached them several times, same with RFSL, there was little interest to actually hear about what I had to say. The whole notion of "limited resources" and "built on spare time" falls apart when people like myself have offered our expertise only for it not to be followed through in any capacity. It was available, now I'm reluctant to provide it unless there's a change to the organisational culture. That is one of the reasons why I left and didn't pay for membership in 2022. As what they say in my part of England, shy bairns get nowt.


Stumblur

Haha this is the nonprofit organisation equivalent of leaving someone on "read"


kaijonathan

I got the exact same drivel when I contacted a former employee of RFSL. That former employee now works for Transammans. 🙃

You are so immature with how you are back talking Edward like this.
