Okay, I have had a question that has been bugging me for over a year now. First and foremost, I want to say that I have no problems with transexuals whatsoever, it is no business of mine what they want to do to their own bodies. But here's the question, what does it mean to be transexual/transgender?? I have heard MtF transexuals and transgendered people talk about "feeling feminine". I am a woman and have absolutely no idea about what this "feminine" feeling they are referring to is. To be honest, I don't even believe in it. I don't think there is such a thing (asides from preconditioned roles) as "masculinity" or "feminity". I was shocked to read of one person, born with a penis, who decided to make the transition to female for reasons like enjoying shopping, and disliking football etc. Anyways, this brings me nicely on to my next question....aren't transexuals and transgender people further reinforcing these stereotypes?? If they believe that to "be a woman" you have to enjoy shopping, want to have children, be sensitive, like wearing skirts....and that to be a man you can never show your feelings, love drinking down the pub, playing football...or that to be any sex, you have to fill a certain criteria. When the way I see it is that we're all individuals, we're all different and that whatever genitals we have is/should be irrelevant.
