here's to the opening of minds

suffragettecity's picture

We had an MTF transgendered person visit our GLBT group last night, which was interesting, as she was the first person I'd ever seen who'd had a sex change (at least the first person who I knew to have had one).

I admit that I used to be somewhat transphobic, viewing dissatisfaction with one's biological sex without physical evidence of gender variation to be abnormal. Finding out about Thai kathoey (also known as "ladymen") and "Two-Spirit" traditions in various Native American cultures, and the guest speaker we had gradually changed my attitudes in a big way, however.
