(Especially, by the conservative right?)
What have transsexual done to merit such scorn?
I am a transsexual myself (M to F), I didn't ask for this. I have tried every thing to make my gender dsyphoria go away, nothing worked. The only thing that has brought me a small measure of peace was accepting that I was born this way. I was born with a female brain trapped inside a male body. So each day I wake up and try to be the best person I can be, I mind my own business, I work hard, I pray to god and I love my family. But everyday that I step out of my house as my true self, I get rude comments, snickers, pointing, looking at me, threats and more, where ever I go. And if that is not enough to put up with, try looking for a new job as a transexual?
Since I came out as my true self I have been fired, and not rehired for any job not even one I am over qualified for. Why?
Is it to much to expect, to make a living and live my life in peace in 2009, I mean sometimes I feel like I am living in the 1950s.

Why is it ok in Western Society for women to wear men's clothing and TABOO when men wear women's clothing?
Why do you think Western Society is like that?
Is it because Western Society is a male dominated society, and thus must treat anything feminine as being inferior?
I find this weird because not too long ago in Western Society men wore clothing that would be considered "feminine" by today standards.
Is it comfort? Suggesting that all women’s clothing is uncomfortable so they are forced to wear men’s clothes for comfort?
Is it homophobia? A man wearing a skirt must be gay?
Is it religion? Some religions state that men should not wear women’s clothing. Again, looking to history (not that long ago) what was consider acceptable macho male attire would be consider very feminine today.
It just seems that this is an unfair double standard in Western Society that we just keep accepting and passing on from one generation to the next.
What do you think?
