Transcript of Trans*

"Cisgender" "Transgender" individuals whose
sex assigned
at birth matches their
gender and their sense
of personal identity "an umbrella term for persons
whose gender identity,
gender expression,
or behavior does not conform
to that typically associated
with the sex to which they
were assigned at birth." I'm a cis woman!
My sex is female and I identify as being a woman I'm a cis man!
My sex is male
and I identify
as being a man Sex is NOT the same as gender! "Sex" is a biological term used to describe a person as "male" or "female".
A person's sex is assigned based on physical attributes I'm a
trans woman I'm
queer And so
am I! I'm
androgynous I'm bi-gendered I'd prefer not to
be labeled And Intersex!
Depending on who you are talking to intersex people are trans or cis Chromosomes Hormones External
Anatomy Internal
Anatomy Definitions of "gender"
differ between cultures Gender is basically the roles, behaviors, attributes, and activities society is appropriate for a sex Thinks Dude, what's
with the skirt? It's a kilt! Ugh!
How un-womanly! But these are
Skinny Jeans! Male! Neither
one! Female! Gender Identity is the internal sense of what you are Gender Expression is how you show the world what your identity is Behavior Clothing Voice Body
Characteristics It would be impossible to attempt to mention every single gender or identity under the trans umbrella and not accidentally miss one. And plenty of people don't feel like they identify as being Cis or Trans Being Trans*
does not dictate sexual orientation Do ask preferred names!
Don't ask about "real" names Ask about pronouns! He/Him She/Her They/Them Ze/Hir E/Em Think about what you want to ask
Would you ask some one else the
question if they weren't Trans? I just met you, and this is crazy,
but I heard that you're trans,
so tell me 'bout genitals maybe? Don't ask anything
that might make
your friend
uncomfortable Some people are more open than others!
Be respectful of how open they wish to be Just because someone is out
to you that does not mean
they are out to EVERY ONE. Some trans people are concerned with
who knows that they are trans. You might think this is just "paranoia" but theirs is a
valid concern. Would you play on a friend's
arachnophobia and tell them they have a spider on their shoulder? Would you do that knowing it might truly hurt their feelings? What Does Trans*
Mean? Cis does not equal stereotypes! Transsexual people have a strong identity of being different than their assigned sex Pre-operative Post-operative Non-operative Male-To-Female Female-To-Male SRS
Sexual Reconstruction Surgery Includes Cross Dressers
Drag Queens and Kings More about Gender Expression
than Gender Identity Zie/Zir term that some people use who identify their gender as falling outside the binary constructs of “male” and “female.” Other categories of transgender people
include androgynous, multigendered, gender
nonconforming, third gender, and two-spirit
people. Exact definitions of these terms vary from person to person and may change over time, but often include a sense of blending or alternating genders Trans Masculine Leans most to Male Trans Feminine Leans most to Female includes FTM
and other transgender
people Includes MTF and
other transgender people People do what they can to feel comfortable in their own skin Trans* Issues “The world would be a better place if everyone had the right to be themselves, including people who have a creative gender identity and expression. Transgender people are not allowed the freedom to do things everyone else does, like go to the doctor, go to school, get a job, and even make friends.

Transgender kids like me are not allowed to go to most schools because the teachers think we are different from everyone else. The schools get afraid of how they will talk with the other kids’ parents, and transgender kids are kept secret or told not to come there anymore. Kids are told not to be friends with transgender kids, which makes us very lonely and sad.

When they grow up, transgender adults have a hard time getting a job because the boss thinks the customers will be scared away. Doctors are afraid of treating transgender patients because they don’t know how to take care of them, and some doctors don’t really want to help them. Transgender patients like me travel to other states to see a good doctor.

It would be a better world if everyone knew that transgender people have the same hopes and dreams as everyone else. We like to make friends and want to go to school. Transgender people want to get good jobs and go to doctors like they are exactly the same. It really isn’t that hard to like transgender people because we are like everyone else.” Shemale is also offensive TranS*upport One meeting for Trans* or
