I Am In Support of Transgender and Genderqueer People

    No, I'm not trans. Nor do I

    even have friends that are. But it's sad to see trans people get kicked out of their families because of something they can't control. It always makes me so confused when soon to be Mother's say **** like "I don't care the gender of the baby, as long is its healthy, I'll love...

    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...

    How could I not be? They face unimaginable

    discrimination.... and it breaks my heart. These are ******* people, but society is so woefully far behind. To be born with a mind that puts you in any nonstandard gender category is practically a death sentence, going by data on average suicide rates. **** arbitrary cookie...

    My boyfriend is FTM and my first nontraditional

    heterosexual relationship. It's my first after a divorce. We chose to keep our relationship private for a period but my mom and stepdad found out before I ever had a chance to come out as pansexual myself (that's another story). I was threatened to have custody of my child taken...

    Just saw the Danish Girl yesterday,

    and although it had a tremendous emotional impact and was very psychological in some aspects, i feel like there was some awkwardness. And i mean the representation of trans people. Personally i see no problem with Redmayne playing Elbe rather than a transwoman, or at least i...

    Since Caitlyns shoot with vanity fair the

    transphobes and transmisogynists have really showed their true faces. Even with people who claim to support the trans and lgbtqa community, so here's some reminders: ⋅ Calling her anything other than Caitlyn is transphobic. It's her name, use it. ⋅ Using male pronouns is...

    My little brother is 14

    You can't say your feminism is

    for the rights of women if you pick and choose some women over others. You can't say your feminism is for women if you don't include trans women. So who's it even for?

    When I was a small kid,

    all my friends were female. For my birthday parties, my mum always added at least one boy to the guest list, because she wanted it to be more balanced (though it was still 9 to 1 or so). If we were asked to wear costumes in kindergarten, I would dress up as a princess. And I...

    "Being trans is not something you are born with.

    It's a choice".... If medically this is not true, then why in the hell is it even open for discussion? I'm sure that trans did not choose to get put down and bullied, by those who are ignorant and do not understand. "Just be yourself". Isn't that what we teach our children? "Do...

    i just joined the forum yesterday.

    I am transgender and support all gender non conforming people. I have been out for nearly eleven years. I have some wonderful friends and have embraced people that most likely I would have never have contact with. I feel so blessed and never have been happier in my life.

    I have a trans ex and it bothers me

    so much when people say being trans isn't real, it took a toll on her everyday when people called her a guy or him, but no matter what I treated her like a princess, well she was my princess, I did her make up, painted her nails, lent her clothes and bought her pretty underwear...

    Whenever I show a sex-change operation to

    someone they say in the end "Now I understand that if someone is REALLY going to do something like that, they must be very determined" and they finally understand what trans people have to go through!

    Why not support them?

    Leave them be, stop pointing out flaws. I bet if you didn't know or couldn't tell, you wouldn't be so transphobic. Transphobia isn't even a phobia, you're not scared, you're just an arsehole unable to accept another human being's person.
