Here is a sad story about a transgender girl who was discriminated against. It is a shortened version of an article called I’m trans, I’m bullied, I’m fighting back from the Huffington Post, 17 July 2013
I’m no stranger to harsh words from ignorant people. I was bullied as a kid like many of us were. The consistent verbal attacks from people who felt that my gender presentation, even as a child, was some kind of attack on their own, have left a collective imprint of emotional bruising. I was born a girl and dressed like a boy. I begged to keep my hair short and cried every time my mother tried to put a dress on me so she just gave up trying and let me dress how I wanted to most of the time.I was repetitively asked ‘Are you a boy or a girl?’ throughout childhood and adolescence and usually followed by ‘Dyke!’ It wasn’t just kids either. When I was 12, a Portuguese female customs officer loudly asked the question in front of other travelers. When I answered she said, ‘Next time you come through here, try looking like one.’This consistent public humiliation left me scarred for life. This hurt is triggered every time someone violates a part of my identity now. Words can be violent. Especially for someone who is transgender when it is language used around our bodies. We spend most of our lives cofused or hating ourselves so when people crawl into our psyches and make that worse, it becomes dangerous. We feel alone and unwanted and freakish.
