How to Respect a Transsexual Person [May. 17th, 2004|12:03 am]
I came across this on how you should treat someone who is Transsexual, I'd not seen it before. I found it linked from Wikipedia page. Just when you thin you have seen every page on a subject, you learn just how big the intarweb thingy is.

Fear of a transgendered planet?

It's a shame that how we SHOULD be treated is sometimes not how we ARE treated by society.
I think 'They' will alway's treat 'us' like 'we' are from Mars.

Re: Fear of a transgendered planet?

I been thinking about this for the last few days, all I keep coming back to the first time I was out with a friend who just happened to be black, the stares from people, just because it was a white guy and a black girl together, that was a real shock, I thought people had progressed more than that. It just reinforce that these sort of changes take a long time.

Something does seem to be happening, more articles in newspapers and magazine, more Television shows, ok many of these are cheap and tacky but it's a start, hopefully they will lead to a better understand and less fear from people.

Re: (hormones in the water supply is the only answer)
Given how the Centre of Nottingham is (or at least was) on Friday night, that does not seem like such a bad plan.

testosterone-free zone.

I don't expect society will ever fully understand.

Water+Hormones=Planet Ladyboy.
(shame to waste all that lovely oestrogen on others though!)

Re: testosterone-free zone.

No I don't expect them to fully understand either, just maybe a little better than they currently do or at least follow that British tradition of just ignoring people they find strange.

"people they find strange."

Hmmm,Difficult one this,
If "we" pass completely,
they would'nt stare.
they would'nt shout:"freak".
(Re:Asda two weeks ago)

it's a shame "we" have to put up with this sort of shit.
and always will.

That the bit I'm not looking forward to but like you I'm resigned to it.

All the better to see you with.

Good luck at your GP's tomorrow.

One giant leap for Ladyboy-kind."
as Daisy Armstrong once said.

(just be careful about the shoes you wear when leaping!)

Re: Tomorrow.

Thanks, I'll try and post a full run down when I get to work.

Funny you should say [gender deleted], I ended up doing some telephone support on my mother computer (just some simple Email stuff) the other night, and at the end of it, she said 'I'm glad I have a Son who knows about all this stuff' or something like that, and I felt very uncomfortable with that little three letter word being used about me, they have alway been not quite right, now they are just not who I am, this feels like (a tiny bit of) progress.
