When I tell people about my work with the TG/CD community, I occasionally get responses like:
“Oh, you mean drag queens?”
“You work with transvestites?”
There’s a lot of ignorance out there and I get annoyed when people mislabel “my girls”.
The fact that there are so many identities under the transgender umbrella only adds to the confusion.
I’ve been thinking a lot about this and would love to hear YOUR thoughts on the topic:
Which “label” do you identify with?
- Transgender woman
- Something else?
Or do you not identify with ANY of these labels?
How do you feel about labels, anyway? Do you hate being labeled or do you wear your chosen label with pride?
I’d love to know, so let’s continue the conversation below!
just like to have big boobs for fun.women seem to like that so they can play too.
I really hate labels! If there has to be one I would prefer to be classified as a cross dresser.
I enjoy life as a male and I enjoy life as a women. I have no problem passing as a women even though I am 6′ tall.
In my beginning days I referred to myself as a Transgendered girl.
But as time went on and I became more and more got comfortable with myself and then eventually becoming legally female. I settled for female as that is me and that is all there is to it…xoxo Kellie
i dont like labels but if i was to it would be a transgenderist.
i think of myself as she or her. or female in training
I have gone thru many changes and labels thru the years, I am now comfortable and accepted as a Transvestite.
I for one hate labels as they put everyone in a special group. I believe we are all men & women & thus that is how I see myself. My therapist reminds me that by rights,”I’m a transwoman”. We all know who or what our jounery is & know what we should have been since birth, so why worry about labels, THEY ARE DUMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Transsexual or transwoman, depending on whether or not I think someone will need specifics. Every now and then I say I’m a transsexual and I get asked “why on Earth would you want to become a man?”
I’ve gotten that reply once (not that I tell people anymore). I consider it to be one of the best compliments that I can get 😀
