Transgender People

I admit, I need to learn more so if I made some mistakes in this blog, please know that I don’t mean any offense. 

Trump has just announced that he is going to stop transgender men and women from being in the army. This is disgusting. There is no reason for this thst should be accepted. If a transgender person wants to be a service to the country then they should be allowed! It’s frankly outrages and I don’t understand how people can still stand by Trump. Obviously they lack any morality.

However, this post isn’t about Trump. I am very curious about something. Why do we refer to transgender people as, a trans man or trans woman?

If I was born a woman, knew I should be a man and did everything to get the body I wanted and belonged in then shouldn’t I simply be refered to as a man? Not a trans man.

We spend too much time making sex, gender and sexuality the main focus of someone but that shouldn’t be the case.

We shouldn’t be referring to people as “the gay best friend” or “my transgender friend.”

Why do these things have to dominate everything. We should be seeing people as human beings, their sexuality or being transgender doesn’t need to be the most interesting and talked about thing about them. We need to see the person, there is so much more to people than just those things. 

But do people prefer to be known as transgender? Again I hope this isn’t being offensive to anyone. Should it n it just be “I am a woman.” People don’t have to disclose that thay were born a different sex. I just think this would make it so much more inclusive rather than excluding people to being a trans woman rather than just a woman.

Does this make sense to you?
