Being transgender is not something that is easily influenced.
It's not because of the toys you were given as a child, you already know if they're the right toys for you or not.
It's not because of the friends you hang out with, you already know who you identify with.
It's has nothing to do with a lack of a certain parental figure(just like boys of a single mother can still be straight).
It's not because of how your parents raised you, you already know if what they're doing makes sense.
It has nothing to do with not being taught how to be a man or a woman, I was taught to be a man, and that surely made me grow up to be one. I still wore gloves when I went outside to work with my father on the yard, so my hands wouldn't be dirtied.
It has nothing to do with sports. I played soccer in first and second grade, and I still hate sports. Except for the world cup, they I get crazy.
It's not because of the relationships you were in, it may just influence them ...
It's not because you've been exposed to other transgender individuals, just like not knowing about gays will always make you straight.
It has nothing to do with being gay or straight. Not all transwomen are attracted to man, and some transmen just wanna be gay males, or even bisexual. I myself identify as a pansexual asexual lesbian transwoman.
It is not supposed to be a mistake from God. It just happens, like babies born with learning disorders or stillbirths or miscarriages. God isn't always responsible for those, why would this be Any different?
It is not an abomination. Only society assumptions are.
It is something beautiful.
It is confusing.
It is an internal struggle, and does not deserve another struggle/resistance externally.
It is pure.
It is innocent.
It does however blur your idea of gender, and make the whole concept confusing and a nightmare.
It does however allow you to see the difference between genitals(sex) and gender so the idea of a masculine girl or feminine guy doesn't surprise you.
It does however make it hard to understand society's gender roles.
It does deserve respect
It does not cause you depression. Society and its imposed gender roles and focus on sex do.
It does not mess up our lives. Society and its imposed gender roles and focus on sex do.
It does not make finding a partner difficult. Society and its imposed gender roles, focus on sex and attack on same-sex relationships does.
It does not make us mentally ill. Raising us as the wrong gender does ...
It does not make you less of a man or woman. It makes you more of a man, because you gave up everything to be a man.
It makes you realize that how big your penis is, does not mean how much of a man you are.
It may have nothing to do with genetics. It may not be preventable or predictable. It is same sex. It is opposite sex. It is all sex. It is no sex. It is the purest expression of gender. It is one gender. It is all genders. It is no gender. Transgender is being honest and true to yourself.
Transgender is beautiful.
Transgender is human.
Being Transgender or Gay is not a choice, being Transphobic or Homophobic is, so don't be a Twonk
