    I'm not transgender but I recognize the fact

    that they are people and happen to be born in the wrong type of body. Not their fault. I recognize that they have rights or should have rights anyway. I may be ignorant on some facts about Transgender life but give me time, I'm still learning. All people need to do is be open to...

    Transgendered and gender fluid folk most be the

    most put upon in our society. Why this is beats me. It must be hart enough to have to deal with a mismatch between what you see yourself as what the body you were born with with out having cave men and cave women adding to it,

    I am currently a beauty school student

    and I recently gave my girlfriend her first girly haircut :) It was fun and a bit nerve wracking lol but it turned out nice! I gave her a bit of light layering around her face (a lot of stylists call it the California cut) since her hair is fairly thin. I knew when I was in my...

    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

    hi again everyone. Yeah I just recently posted

    a story here. But I feel like I need to express myself. But honestly I don't know what to say. I don't even know how to make this make sense. It really feels embarrassing to even talk about this. But anyone who wants to hear what I have to say I will gladly explain more. P.S. I...

    Yesterday was a long tough day,

    I am still recovering from the experience. I was so scared and nervous but I felt like it had to be done at some point, I knew there would of been a time where I needed to tell my dad who I really was inside. My dad is not the nicest of people, he is homophobic, aggressive...

    I love transgenders. It is understandable

    that people do not appreciate them since they break the biased images we have had of women and men for so long. It is the same with enjoying the body of a fat man or woman, it can be difficult to handle if we do not take time to really understand this very different type of...

    I can't say I'm transgender,

    because honestly I don't know what I am. I have numerous moments where I think I was. but despite the confusion these feelings give me, I can't deny they make me happy. And anyone else that feels this way, I will gladly defend their hearts

    Defining Support From My Point Of View

    It annoys me that this is

    such an over looked topic. People should be educated in school about transgender to avoid such ignorance. I myself am not trans but it infuriates me when people misunderstand or judge.

    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.
