While gay, lesbian, and (to a lesser extent) bisexual people are generally understood and starting to become accepted by our society, transgendered people are still fighting for that basic understanding. Our society has such black and white views on gender, and many have trouble wrapping their minds around the concept of gender and sex being distinctly different. I cannot imagine the pain and confusion of living in a body that I did not feel was mine. I cannot imagine what it would be like to feel a disconnect between my biological sex and the gender identity that was in my mind.
The process of transition is a long, emotional, and expensive one. The women who do it have so much courage. The fact that someone would go through such a process and risk losing their family, societal acceptance, and so much else to change their sex tells me how painful it must be to live in a body that feels foreign to you. Transwomen are beautiful and courageous and are just as much a woman as I am, no matter what point in their transition they are in. Pre-op, post-op or somewhere else entirely, these are women in every sense of the word. Beautiful women who deserve to be appreciated and seen as the people that they really are, and always have been.

Some people would say that these women used to be men. But the truth is, they’ve always been women, it’s just that now the world sees them for who they really are and who they’ve always been.
