Gender is multi-dimensional and society is only starting to recognize that.
For most of my life, I was oppressed by this suffocating creation – a box built by a society that doesn’t understand what a “guy” really is.
Why don’t we make one holiday – “Parents’ Day”? You get rid of a lot of the assumptions that are harming our society.
Even though I’d spent eight months in “transition”, presenting as a woman (and BEING a woman, albeit with a penis), I realized I hadn’t seen myself as a REAL woman before I got the right body.
What’s this non-binary business, anyway?
I spent a week with a host and never told her that I was born in the body of a guy.
Among a lot of “trans” people, there’s a dream: to live the cis life.
In both the transsexual and cross-dressing communities, the word “pass” is used to describe whether someone is perceived as the gender they’re presenting as or “really” the other.
We live in an amazing epoch, where it’s possible to be born in a completely wrong body, but actually manage to change your sex.
The simple answer is to stop listing “sex” on IDs and passports. No one checking those needs to know your anatomy.
God isn’t someone – or something – whose gender we have the slightest idea about.
This is a question I was asked, time and time again, by some fellow patients at the transsexual surgery centre in Delhi.
Not a day goes by I don’t give thanks to modern science.
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.
