Recently I've seen a lot of transphobic comments, especially on Facebook (of course), but in real life too, from my father no less. It really really bothers me how transgender people are treated, whether they are post or pre-op. It's so annoying when people say stupid things like "if you were born a girl you are a girl, gender is determined by nature not feelings". FUCK YOU AND FUCK YOUR OPINIONS. It's so small minded and stupid to discount someone's feelings just because you have never felt the thing that they feel. Imagine you were born into a body that never felt right for you, imagine feeling uncomfortable not just in your own skin, but about your gender. Imagine how that must feel. You are lucky that you were born with the right gender. It is understandable to be curious about trans people, and I'm pretty sure nobody would be offended if you asked a question about transgender people. But staying hateful and ignorant? That's not okay. Educate yourself and put yourself in their shoes. I bet people would be a hell of a lot less hateful if they'd felt even a fraction of the pain of not being born with the right gender.
I have more to say but I don't want to get too tedious lol.
On a completely different note, thank you so much to all you guys' support when I was feeling really shitty on Thursday. Y'all are awesome and I love you guys! -3- *kissies and group hugsssssssss*
