Vicki Thoms should get the comment of the week award ... "I looked at her as human".
Deena +100, Vicki Thorns +1,000!
All too often, thats the issue. We're not seen as 'human'.
Hell, I don't even consider myself as 'human'.
This. This right here.
Can't anyone help Chrissy Polis find a decent job? I'm not in her area, is there anyone local who might have something to offer her? She's been through plenty, and really deserves a soft place to land, after all this.
Chrissy is a cutie, a very attractive young woman! What's the problem?! She should be able to find a job. She's only 22 or something like that, right? Ye, Gods...
I can understand if she's got trauma issues from such an attack. She might possibly be developing agouraphobia because of it.
I hope she'll be alright. I like her, and that wonderful maternal woman who stepped in when no one else would.
Chrissy's brother talked at length about all the constant harassment and hostility Chrissy faced in her local community for being of transgender experience, so I would assume that is "the problem". Most of us suffer from unemployment, underemployment, and employment far below our skill and education levels. We are more educated than the average person, but earn far less on average. It's discrimination.
I imagine she will have much trouble getting hired after all the press she has gotten over that assault she suffered.
