Hi Bianca I think it is important to stop every once in a while just to take a snap shot in time so you can determine how we are viewed by society in general. When i was much younger “back in the dark ages” I had a special woman friend that called me her “IT’. Not because she was being mean or trying to be derogatory, She just did not know how best to describe us. She only knew i was not born with a female body but enjoyed dressing and acting like female. Maybe it is better that there be a label that best fits who we are at any given point in our lives. I believe it very fluid as I have changed over the years. It does show me that society is at least trying to understand our very diverse community. I like the word TRANS for some reason. It is certainly much better than being considered a “IT”.
