You know what's ridiculous about the legislation of the world's largest #democracy??
The people who are at the receiving end are completely neglected.
And now the Transgender Persons Protection Bill is passed ignoring the demands and changes the trans community was asking for.
I'm afraid screaming is going to be insufficient. We should organize ourselves, collaborate wirh people who are outraged like us and get involved in politics. If we are all just screaming, we will be just ignored. I don't see a short cut or short term solution. If we start today at least, we have a chance to reverse things later.
@praveen I feel the same but we need more people joining in. And Mastodon as a network works better for collaboration than Twitter. We just need to take the next step soon. I am really open for collaboration of any kind. The kind of work @saketgokhale @Vakeel_Sb @ICLU @jhatkaadotorg @naukarshah @sanjayuvacha @AdvManoj @jamewils @digitaldutta are doing is what needs to be made into one whole effort and work together with all who are willing to join. This needs to be a movement.
We have been trying to get people together at @piratesin but it is very difficult. We were focusing on working together as peers model instead of leaders and followers, as I noticed many well intentioned groups got diluted by its leaders. But finding solutions and framing policies together is a hard task.
Hey @praveen that's exactly why we need to collaborate and work together. Different people doing different things. I would love to connect and talk about this further. Where are you based out of?
I'm based in Kerala (Kannur/Thrissur, but travel across Kerala and sometimes across India too).
