    I was born a girl and tbh I've never felt like

    one. I was never into anything that would associate with being a girl as a child or now at 19 and that scares me. When I went to my friends houses as a child I hated how we would have to play dress up and do our make up and everything else all I wanted to do was go outside and...

    When I was a nerd in middle school I had this

    Drag Queen neighbor, Mr. Hookerson. I used to come to him for help with being popular and fashion. He cut my hair into spikes with side bangs and showed me how to dress fashionable, jackets with furry collars, shiny pants, tall boots, etc. I thank that he/she for helping me...

    People are people. It shouldn't matter

    if they're straight, gay, bi, or trans. They're just being true to themselves. Even with every nasty comment thrown their way they still have the ability to ignore them and stay true. I think people could greatly learn from their perseverance.

    Well I'm transgender

    and came out to my parents 2 weeks ago, but now I can't talk to my mother without her looking at me like I'm some sort of freak... And she won't even talk to me about me being transgender, luckily my dad is looking for a therapist

    Transgendered and gender fluid folk most be the

    I love transgenders. It is understandable

    I completely support them.

    . You didn't/don't feel like who you were born as is who you are. What's the big deal about wanting to be what makes you happy? That makes you truly feel like you? Please, leave transgender people alone, they are regular people just like you and me.

    but when one makes that transition do they usually take on another personality as well? Do they completely become a different person?
