My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.

Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.

Feel free to boost. #trans

Gandhiji's death was "accidental".
Just as Judge Loya's was.
Just as Gauri Lankesh's was.
Just as Dabholkar's was.
Just as Pansare's was.
True. The Sangh's enemies tend to suffer accidents.
This is what today's kids are being taught in school.

இன்று கர்நாடகா எம் எல் ஏக்கள் வழக்கில் உச்சநீதிமன்றம் தீர்ப்பு சொல்கிறது. ஆமாம், தமிழ்நாட்டின் 11 எம் எல் ஏக்கள் வழக்கு என்னதான் ஆனது?

There should be a legal bar against switching over alliances for forming government. It is against people mandate

Out of 99 rs/kg that consumer pays for onion, only 8 rs/kg goes to farmers. Rest is taken by middlemen who hoard it and create artificial supply crunch.
Govt should focus on market regulation and anti-hoarding laws.
More important is providing accessible and affordable storage to farmers, so that they wouldn't have to sell their produce unless they get a profitable price. There should be more private players in agri storage chain. @ramanmann @Human_Being m.indiatimes.com/news/poor-far
