    i wish that transgender was just treated like

    another gender, just like male and female. i wish that it was completely normal for a man to become a woman or a woman to become a man. the world would be so much simpler and there would be so much more happiness in the world. I would love to dress like a girl and be free, but i...

    I was previously within the camp

    that sex is biologically determined while gender is socially determined. That worked for a college student shortly after 9/11, though it certainly wasn't all-inclusive. I heard a story on NPR today about a Transgender five-year-old whose mother asked if they would be happy...

    I am not tran or anything.

    I just think these people get a bad rap, and for what? Nothing, really. I mean, Whatever they feel is just as valid as what you or I feel. If they want to be different, then why not let them? And I understand that for some people it is uncomfortable, but instead of looking at...

    I would like to say a bit about this topic

    because it seems to be like a hot topic right now. I do not believe you can be born the wrong gender. I believe that if you were born a guy then you're a guy or if you're born a girl you're a girl. However! I do want to say I do believe that if you feel like you'd be happier as...

    All people have the right to be however they

    want. I grew up as a male but I like wearing pretty things and why should that even be a problem? Liberate your mind, society!

    I love this community

    and what it stands for. I myself am not transgender, but I support anyone who is. With the photo of Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner out today it is definitely one for the books. Many are so supportive while others are outraged. I think it's not only sad but surprising considering way back...

    Sending out love to all transgender

    and genderqueer people. This world is full of hate and narrow minded people, but it's awesome to see that slowly changing. People are gradually becoming more accepting. Keep fighting your fight!

    transgender female to male. I am pre-everything and in the process of starting testosterone. I have been out to my friends for a year, to my mom for a few months, and I will wait until I start testosterone to tell the rest of my family. I don't have too many friends and don't...

    Let us support all human beings

    and be an Ally for those who suffer. Do not except mistreatment to anyone. Do not engage in jokes or ridicule. Let people be who they are and let people be people. Let us not forget those who lost their lives for being who they are.

    About my last experience involving my brother,

    I did eventually end up asking why he was so curious and asking so many questions. It took awhile because he was very nervous (my family isn't very open about these type of things usually) but he did end up with him wanting to try some girls clothes on just to see how he felt...

    so much, like honestly trans people are so brave, and I'm so proud of them for doing what they think is right for them and doing what makes them happy, like you guys are so brave to go out in the world being the gender you want and not caring about what other people say or think...

    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.

    I just can't stand when people call

    transgenders "it's" or "he-she" or "she males". They have a pronoun (or maybe none at all) that they would like to be called. If you're unsure, just use they/them. It's a lot more respectful and it's safe to use. Or ask them politely what pronouns they prefer. Also I don't...
