Transgender Visibility Day 2018


Posted March 31, 2018 to my Facebook page…

I have never publicly made a big deal about my sex or my gender, as what I am isn’t up for debate. My biological make up is what it is and no one and nothing will ever change that. If you don’t know I’m not male maybe you need to ask yourself how much you really know about me.

But all that said, today is Transgender Visibility Day, and it’s important for people to understand that transgender women and men aren’t just the dramatized images commonly projected and abused by popular media they are people you know and claim to love. They are your neighbors, classmates, friends, and family whether you realize it or not. You cross paths with a transgender, non-binary, or genderfluid person almost every day without even knowing it.

Because of this invisibility, you and others, including our very government, make critical judgments and decisions effecting and targeting the livelihoods of transgender, non-binary, or genderfluid people, often without even the basic understanding that “transgender” isn’t a noun.

So, as this day comes to an end take the time to think about how you judge and treats other. Rethink your preconceived thoughts about people you do not know and let everyone live their lives in a way that makes then happy whether it is how you would live or not.

About you, by you. Bios are terrible. I’m just a guy who occasionally writes what he thinks. If you like it pass it on, if you don’t like it, complain about it then pass it on. But at least do something. This country has become a bunch of whiners that just sit on there butts. “You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” – Winston Churchill
