    Hi girls. Now i’m sure many of you can relate to some of the most ridiculous things people say, you know the ones, they are the neanderthal people in society, who never move forward and believe everything other people say. I want to hear things you have heard, or had said to you. I’ll start you off with a couple of common misconceptions, people come out with….

    1. All cross dressers are Gay
    2. All homosexuals have Aids.

    To us, this sounds totally absurd, but some people actually believe it!!! so come on girls, lets see if we can add a few more ridiculous and untrue statements to the list….

    I love how guys will look at me & think “she looks easy!”.
    Umm, they couldn’t be more wrong! I’ll make them work harder than any GG ever has!
    I’ll also most likely, reject them in the end!
    I expect to be treated like a lady, & on that, I do not compromise!

    People think we’re after their children.

    I can’t count the number of times women have pulled their children closer to them as they walk past me.

    The one I hear sometimes in the UK is “trannies are perverts”.  I believe the word transvestite is no longer used much  in the transgender community –  crossdresser being the acceptable modern term. Is this so?

    I don’t think I am a pervert, but maybe I am?

      When I was little I heard the word transvestite being used about a man who wore women’s clothing and thought “that must be what I am”. I looked it up in my mum’s dictionary (circa 1940s) and it said something along the lines of “a sexual perversion in which a man wears items of women’s clothing”. Yikes! I was a “sexual pervert” at the age of 6. As such I discarded that term. Crossdresser came next so I decided to use that term, until the days of the internet and I found a site that described transvestites as those who wore women’s clothing and crossdressers as transvestites who did it for a sexual fetish. Then I found a site that had it the other way around, then another that stated that crossdressers were gay transvestites. Huh?
      Labels are dangerous things in the wrong hands.

      Stephanie, I don’t think you’re a pervert you’re just my sister haha.

      I’ve read that same thing about the words transvestite and crossdresser.  This is just my personal thought but to me the former doesnt lend itself well to understanding while the latter, I just dislike the connotation of.  Really, I’d love to “reclaim” the word tranny as something that’s okay , kind of like how the word queer has been reclaimed as being okay…

    I’ve heard that all gay men want to be women…

    I’m not gay but like, even as a kid I got that was pretty far off the mark. Generally I think it boils down to misconceptions between gender and sexuality, and a lack of exposure.

    Okay Fiona, the best one for me was when one of my friends got mad about transgender…why?  Because he said it was “dishonest”…um hello McFly why would I put myself thru this crap if my aim was to be dishonest??

    A lot of people also believe in mythical deities which often gives rise to the very
    misconceptions that you mention plus a few others.

      I believe in one such mythical diety, although mine has the courage to be honest about such things…it’s some of his other followers who often scare me!  People make of it what they desire.
