Ask Francine - Straight Pride

I am supposed to be happy that you sodomites are gathering in Kansas City to celebrate your pride by waving banners, holding up signs, and purchasing abnormal quantities of over-fluffed synthetic hair.
I’m familiar with this sort of gathering — it’s exactly like when my fellow Tea Party friends get together to protest Obamacare. I understand your passion, your sense of righteousness and the fact that you feel like society’s doormats.
But you are pond scum, sinners. No use trying to lie about that. I am Kansas City’s favorite Christian, so I feel that it’s my place to do what I think Jesus would do: Condemn you all. Nothing personal, mind you. It’s just that we straights run the world, and we don’t want you being any big part of it.
Except as waiters, floral arrangers and hairstylists. For you sassy lesbianic creatures, animal-control officers and power-line tree-trimmers seem to be fashionable occupations to get your hands dirty, as you like to do.
Don’t roll your eyes at me, sinners. I know that through your gay agenda you’re infiltrating managerial offices, police forces and other occupations that truly require the expertise of a Straight.
But us Straights know more, think quicker and are more moral than any of you can ever be. That’s why we’re fighting for the institution of marriage. I would die rather than see a pair of you perverts possess a valid Missouri marriage license.
As your friend, I need to tell you three things: First, unless you change your ways, you’re doomed to hell. Second, attend a church (see purple sidebar) that I approve of. You’ll have a much better chance of meeting me in Heaven if you die under their tutelage.
And lastly, marriage will never make you happy. I know -- I’ve been married three times. Know that I’ve been there, I’ve done that, and you don’t need to ride at the front of the bus with me. The view from the back is just fine.

Nurse Practitioner Ari Kravitz

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
