Being A Transgender In India

The amount of pain and marginalism this group has faced cannot be described in words. Despite being considered as a third gender by supreme court of India they’re still not accepted by our society

Today I was sitting on the Porch with my friends and suddenly came the topic of being a transgender in India my friend who is a 25-Year-old well-educated Girl still avoided this topic I asked if her own son felt like being a transgender what would her response be she immediately responded ill never let this happen i asked can you control anyone’s sexuality ?  And the discussion ended with no conclusion. the urgent need of our society is the EDUCATION

EDUCATION is not just about books but about the basic moral values  Basic human values that a human needs to have.

When a child is born, a doctor says, “It’s a boy” or “It’s a girl.” Assigning someone’s sex is based on biology — chromosomes, anatomy, and hormones. But a person’s gender identity — the inner sense of being male, female, or both — doesn’t always match their biology

Many people have assumptions about what it means to be transgender, but it isn’t about surgery, or sexual orientation, or even how someone dresses. It’s how they feel inside.

“It takes a lot of courage to buck the culture’s norm that gender is binary,” says Helen R. Friedman, PhD, a clinical  psychologist  in St. Louis who specializes in gender identity and transgender issues

we live on a land of Irony, the country where the ‘Ardhnaarishwar’ Avatar of Lord Shiva gets prayed and respected by people, But the pain and hatred that people of our great nation have against transgender community despite all the efforts of some people they have to face so many challenges being a transgender. Since the people fear them, hence the hatred is not ‘shown’ by the people, but giving them money as soon as they come close is a signal enough to show how weird people feel being around a group of transgender people. Most of the transgender people still strive for the respect and recognition as a respected human being in the Indian social system.
