GM, obviously it’s upto you if you approve this post on your blog, but I’m reblogging with my 2 cents anyway.
It’s important that all members of this club feel comfortable with the sleeping arrangements. I don’t know why there’s the need to share beds though, sharing rooms I can understand. It’s not just a case of lumping or leaving it for those that don’t feel comfortable sharing with a trans woman, they’re feelings have to be taken into account too, but would we feel the same if they made similar comments about someone’s race, colour, or religious beliefs? I know personally from attending various student union events in the UK, that there are organisations like the YMCA that have dormitory accomodation and single / twin / bunk bed rooms, and I’m sure the situation must be similar where this group visits. Alternatively, camping out can be a fun activity, and once you’ve bought a tent and a sleeping bag, that’s pretty much the expensive bit over and done with (I’ve personally only went camping once with my ex, and we had 2 double inflatable mattresses, sleeping bags, led lighting and a 12 volt leisure battery to power other things like mobile phone chargers).
It’s a tricky situation, but it’s not without it’s options for a happy resolution.

I am disappointed that transphobia exists even in the LGBT community but it does exist. Yes, I know our members need to be educated, but as you know, that will take time and not happen overnight. So please do not berate me on running a…
