For the record I had SRS over 40 years ago during the bronze age of their doing SRS.
Think about it!
Cis-privilege means people don’t automatically think they have the fucking right to ask you about your genitalia.
If you had cancer they might ask as to your recovery but they don’t think they have the right to know intimate details.
For the last fucking time. Men are adult males. Women are adult females. No one is born a man, nor is anyone born a woman. Being a man or a woman is something babies grow up to be.
I was assigned male at birth. I grew up to be a woman.
Transsexual and/or transgender is not a fucking title like Mr., Miss, Mrs. or Ms. Stop putting it in front of our names.. For that matter we are not Transsexual and/or Transgender artists, doctors, lawyers, teachers, models etc. etc. Being Transsexual and/or Transgender is not part of a job description either.
Don’t bother asking someone who had SRS 20-30-40 years ago what it is like to be a transsexual. They most likely have forgotten what you want to know about. On the other hand if you want to hear about dealing with a life time of cis-gender stupidity and bigotry pull up a chair and pop a 64gig card into your digital recorder. You are in for a long recounting of how hard you have made life for people like us.
