COVID-19 affects the genders differently; what does that mean for a transwoman?
The first time I was asked this, it was by a nurse at the transsexual surgery centre in Delhi, India.
It’s a painful truth that womanhood (and even having a gender!) is a new thing for me.
Is this how women are treated?
I get tired of people – mostly online – telling me what I can’t be.
I feel that my past wasn’t even my own – it was that other person’s – that guy’s.
I’m not a man. But I was born with a penis, and spent the first 28 years of my life getting called “he”, so I think I have something to say about this.
Since my sex change, I feel like a new person – reborn, as it were.
Facing the fear that people will never really see me as the woman I am, but always as a “boy who turned into a girl”.
Are carefree people fundamentally better people than those weighed down with concern?
Gender, unlike sexuality, isn’t about attraction to other people. Gender is identity.
So what was your big Christmas present last year? I’ll tell you mine: a sex change in India.
One day, I pray soon, I can be a woman who also is female.
Here’s the short answer. No. I am not, and have never been, a “guy.”
The downsides of being a girl born with “boy parts.”
