On a Monday evening, I discovered the TV series Transparent. It is about the journey one Transgender person embarks on.
Lets start the post with one distinction: Sex and gender are 2 different things.
Sex is between your legs.
Gender is between your ears.
I have the utmost respect for the Trans Community. They are presented at birth with a choice which really isn’t a choice. Conform and be unhappy or embrace as they are born, go through the transition, and risk being abandoned and disdained. Some people see the act of changing your gender as an act against nature and god.
That is the trouble with normal.
Transgender is beautiful. I guess this is a coming out post for me. As a gay man in the LGBT Community, I am coming out as a supporter of transgender rights and equality. If this offends you, I apologize, but I do not apologize for my position.
I stand with my Transgender Brothers and Sisters.
