Richenstein saidI've seen the interview with Laverne Cox. It must be really uncomfortable to be asked about your genitals on television, I really don't understand why someone would even go there. Not seen the interview but it is so inappropriate to ask anything of the sort, i mean why in the first place does someone have the right to question and discuss someones personal attributes
I was in a local supermarket a few years ago and there was an obvious transgender woman in and of all days it was Christmas Eve and i thought it was disgusting that the shop staff where gathering in a group and looking down the isle and laughing.
See the link below, they are people just like any other!
They're a minority that's extremely low in numbers, people view them like objects or caricatures because they're rare. I've often overheard people when they spot someone who is transgender "omg look is that a man? ew he'll never be a woman he looks so manly". A lot of them go through a lot of shit because people simply don't understand that being transgender is not just about "wanting to dress like another gender", treat them as you would anyone else because you never know how tough they have it.
It comes to the fact that in the end where/when/how is gender defined ???
Is it what is between your legs and or not ???
What is in your mine and what you are inside ???
To me from a personal point of view which is a true fact that when we are conceived for the first so long we are all female so if anything goes wrong at that time eg some gene switch etc then the correct body is not created for that person.
