Transgender: Is it a choice or a part of who you are?

Updated on July 26, 2016

Misconceptions In The Transgender Community

  • You can't judge someone if they are transgender or not. Do not make your own conclusions and make an assumption by just how they appear.
  • Do not jump to a conclusion about someone's sexual orientation. Sexual orientation and Gender identity are two different things. Sexual orientation is who you are attracted to and Gender identity is the gender that identify with.
  • Never call someone a he or a she because they look feminine or masculine. If you are not sure about it then ask them politely.
  • They are not confuse about who they are but because of the pressure from the society ,it's harder for them to come out.
  • Transgender people are not different from us, Just like us they experience the struggles in the society, the pressure from our peers and the joy of having someone in our lives.
  • Not all transgender individuals are DRAG QUEENS/KINGS. Even some straight people are cross dressers, it is not necessary to be gay or trans to perform this type of art.

The Unity Of Colors

Everyone deserves to be happy and we should not barricade someone's freedom. Never look down upon them or anyone because you are not greater than them.We are all humans and we are not different from one another so why do we discriminate.Instead of bringing each other down, we should help each one another. For a brighter future, let's raise our hands together for the unity of race,color and gender.

Inspirational Quotes To Make You More Stronger
