Justice for me means that the people who have hurt and attacked me because of my gender and because of my refusal to fulfill their expectations of my gender role will be held accountable. ( If not in a court of law, then at least by the Universe.) I will feel that I’ve received Justice when my story has been told and my name cleared. In seeking Justice I’ve experienced character assassination and lost my chosen career. While the people who have hurt me have been promoted and continue to hurt others. I can not get my career back, but I can help others and prevent them from experiencing my pain by working to see that the perpetrators are exposed and that mechanisms are put in place to help victims be heard. I can’t do it alone. We need to work and stand together to make this happen. As victims we must not be afraid to tell our story and come together to stop the violence. Justice will come when we are able to do this. So let us Rise for Justice!
