I just found out about this conference in Fort Lauderdale September 6-8, 2018. I was wondering if anyone is going? I would like to go learn something’s and meet people. It should be fun as well. I guess this conference used to be in Atlanta for a long time. Let me know if you are going.
I do agree. After I posted “click bait “ I watched the video and it was pretty good. Simple but good. I should have watched it before hand but I hate giving “click bait” any attention. I guess my head is just spinning lately and I just reacted. The way I see it is anything that might help someone to understand the meaning of a very complicated topic is a positive thing. It was very hard for me personally to wrap my head around what this all means and what the differences were in regards to terminology. It does seem to focus on the “in your head distress “ leavening out the external a bit. Yes, something did bother me a tiny bit while watching the video where I was feeling uneasy with what was being said. Kind of like “uhmmmm aaaa Naaa aahhh” if that makes any sense. But information is good and someone who knows nothing about this might have a better understanding after watching. Add more Specific information after that and maybe a truer understanding is around the corner. So thank you Emma for posting this.
Does appear to be clik bait simply because of the title. But I'm wondering if that was a ploy to get those who NEED to hear that information to check it out. We KNOW what "transgender" and "gender dysphoria" are, and we know they are not mental illnesses. It's the people who think we are mentally disturbed who need to learn something. Perhaps the vid was aimed at them.
While we're on the subject of shoes, good grief take a lesson from my recent experiences and get those orthodic inserts even if you don't have a problem to keep you from getting a problem. Women's shoes are designed awfully with flat insides for the most part (although those Earth Spirit ones make an effort at actual foot support) and over time you can injure your feet in variety of ways. I spent the last few months feeling there was a knife in my heels because my fascia thing got injured over years of wearing these shoes that are pretty ubiquitous. And yeah, part of this is on me because I never asked myself why dress shoes are flat and sneakers have all this foot support design. I'm dumb sometimes, but it was just 'how things are' and in the grand scheme of things I had no brain power left for my shoes apparently. Until I paid the price.
So get whatever cute shoes strike your fancy, but for your foots sake, get and use the inserts.
