There was an article on CNN a few weeks ago that brings to light the problems suffered by transgendered people. They are people who feel like they are born in the wrong body, that they should be the opposite gender.
The article says that the parents and doctors know that the kids are transgendered because they do things that a person of the opposite sex generally does, or that they currently identify with the opposite sex. Do you guys think that that is a reasonable basis for determining that someone is transgendered? Or are they merely going through a phase? Or do they just like to do things that are traditionally oriented towards the opposite sex?
I personally do know a transgendered person. I’m not going to give any names or birth sexual assignment to protect this person’s identity, but lets call this person, Nissan GTR. Nissan GTR acts like a member of his/her own gender. If this person did not tell you he/she is transgendered, you would never know. Everything that this person does. The way Nissan GTR walks, talks are all traditionally characteristic of this person’s sex. Even this person’s hobbies are all characteristic of this person’s sex. However, Nissan GTR admitted to me and a few other mutual friends that this person is transgendered. Though Nissan GTR came out two years ago, we’re all still friends to this day.
So, the article is not entirely accurate in my opinion. What do you guys think? Do you have an opinion on this issue? As positive or negative as it may be, please share.
