Hello, loyal followers.
I've decided to break my journal silence following something I heard on the news today that seriously piqued my curiosity.
The Canadian Gov't announced today that it was going to put forward a Bill that will give all transgenders equal rights. At this stage, it's still in the planning process. Anything can happen from this point; but if our "rock star" gets his way, the Bill will go to a Parliamentary vote by the end of June. Then, if it passes the vote, it will then go on to The Senate where they will then vote on whether or not it is to be made into Law.
That's when I realized that I probably know next to NOTHING on what it's like to be a transgender. I mean, when I came of age, I ALWAYS knew that I was a MAN with all of the normal wants, desires, and interests that you'd find in any other normal man walking down the street. My idea of transgenderism was essentially "a woman who was trapped inside a man's body, and vice versa". Mostly MALE, though. I must admit that I don't know too many MEN who feel trapped inside a WOMAN's body. That assumption, however, is probably DEAD WRONG.
Then I thought: What better place to gain that enlightenment than RIGHT HERE, on DA.
SO I put it to YOU, my loyal followers. What's being a transgender all about?
Maybe you know someone who's a transgender, or maybe you're a transgender yourself.
Can you help enlighten a "man's man"?
