Why are transsexuals so hated?

Why are transsexuals so hated?

(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.


  1. To partly answer your question: there are more t-people and homosexuals in the Republican party, then there are in the Democratic party. The difference is that they are in denial, and over-compensating :-)

  2. It isn't hate, it is fear. It comes out in the form of hate though. People fear what they do not understand, they fear anything out of what society has trained them to be "normal", and they fear their own true thoughts might come out in the light.

    It is sad to realize the human race has not grownup much in the last one hundred years. Religion and lack of a real education is part of the problem.

    Being a TG myself, I see that fear in the eyes of many people. Anything that challenges what society considers "normal" will always be feared. It just takes time and a lot of effort to change the views of people.
