As someone who is openly gay I am linked to others who have a different sexuality other than those who are straight. One of the people that the gay community is linked to is those who are transgendered. It something I really didn’t know about when I was growing up and it’s only in the past few years have a realised what it means for someone who feels this way.
I am happy that someone can feel that they were born in a wrong body and need the opportunity to right that problem. That doesn’t mean I am understanding of what it everything means. This certainly doesn’t give me the right to say that what they are doing is wrong. Caitlyn Jenner hasn’t harmed anyone most likely the pain that she has suffered has come from the years of confusion and doubt over who she truly is.
As usual some of the organised church have been quick to condemn her and society for forcing this on us. If you are offended by the fact that someone is transgender and not by the fact that millions of children die each year due to overwhelming poverty then you need a well-deserved reality check.
I am concerned about those who have suffered domestic violence, bullying, child exploitation, poverty, animal rights and the continuing need to tackle inequality in all areas of society. Not whether you think being transgendered is part of a disordered world.
