Change the narritve ​

In this day and age with so many folks coming out as LGBTQIA+, you got to wonder… “when are the conservatives going to learn how to keep their mouths shut?” I like many of my queer family go through our days fighting to survive in a world that hates our very existence but, we as adults have privilege. There is an entire generation of children being raised and being discriminated against and watching a president value guns and scare tactics over the lives of themselves and their friends. 

A nation that is all about being pro-life and wanting to become a “Christian nation” again is really showing us that the kids and folks already born already living life already expressing pain is worthless. It is all about the fetus and at the bottom of it all, they (conservatives) are very contradictory. Everything the modern day trump lover who calls them self a “Christian” is full of contradiction just like the bible they love and hold so tight. Down to the notion that this god they worship killed all the firstborn in the story of Moses but they will never admit that. Picking and choosing the scriptures they want is how we have so many denominations of churches and so many different beliefs just in Christianity. If they were really pro-life I think they could see the bigger picture that EVERY human on the planet has something different about them and all fit like one giant puzzle. Closing the door on any minority because they wont follow guild lines and rules inside the religion is a compleatly backwards for the way life was intended. IMO. 

Trump Christians see a very certain way and it is going to kill a lot of people just like how Germany killed thousands for going against the grain of what leaders were demanding. We are living in the moment of time where Nazi Germany is repeating itself and the group that claims to love unconditionally is the very group promoting Hitlers Germany. What a contradiction.  Evangelical Christians I see you and I’m going to continue calling you out till the term evangelical is gone. That way of life is the most dangerous unloving and cruel ways to live. Being a transgender queer woman living in that context was scary. You all (evangelicals) are not what you say you are in fact you are the opposite. 

Start looking at the folks demanding tumblr/facebook/twitter/and any other social platform who want anything related to sex to be blocked. Not just porn ok? But, ever the conversations of sex and sex ed and how to be safe. Those folks just want people to die while demanding the sex themselves. I know (knew) a bunch of men that would look at porn as they were telling their wives that they love them. On the phone right there while having a conversation with their wives. Then the next hour going and speaking about the love of God. The contradictions are ENDLESS! Also telling a woman to have the baby then not supporting them if they are single or having a hard time just pushing them away because the push to destroy abortion is more important than the life already living there in front of them. Or, going overseas to a village where kids are running around becoming dependent on the group then that dependency gets crushed because the group leaves. The kids then get confused and try to hold on even tighter to the next group. 

The list could go on for miles but I hope you see my point. The group of folks that should be on the front lines of helping minorities is actually the group crushing and killing minorities because they are so opposed to allowing anything other than black and white. When I look at the god they created it makes me sick but that is how it has always been. that God is gross, evil, and a huge contradiction to what they preach behind the pulpit.

Closing thoughts: 

Make schools accessible 

Give students with disabilities attendant care unconditionally 

Don’t complain about having to transfer a student 

Treat people with disabilities like humans 

A disability does not define a person

Autonomy is beautiful and when you allow folks to embrace their own, you are allowing something powerful and amazing to happen. 


Don’t MAKE them suppress. 

Give them room. 

Men are extremely emotional embrace it. 

Validate living in truth. 

Go against the normal of living a lie. 

No more pain. No more lies. Just freedom. 

Not allowing men room to express is the VERY reason we as a society are where we are. Men feel the need to control but forget women ESPECIALLY black women and WoC have done more to move us forward than any man on the planet. Never forget that! Validate humans because that is the ONLY way we are going to grow out of this stunted time. 

Thanks for coming to my ted talk have a good day!

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.
