The Stereotyping of Transgender Women Continues

Those who are not able to experience first hand what it is to be transgender can not understand the gravity of the error being made when they say that a transgender woman "was a guy". For most if not all, transition was just a changing of the outer packaging. The "guy" everyone saw was just an actor in a theatre of their own life.



Does the media distort just what being trans is all about?  For the most part, sadly yes, although it's getting better (I do work in the media so perhaps I am a bit biased).  Christen says a lot in, The Stereotyping of Transgender Women Continues, a relatively short post, which includes a video.
