8 common misconceptions about transsexuals

 Dear Straight People,

It’s time to bust 8 of the most common misconceptions you lot have about transsexuals!

1. Transexuals are all gay

Sexuality and gender are two different things! Many transexuals are not gay. Caitlyn Jenner for example, has stated that she is not gay!

2. Transexuals are all mentally ill

Transexuals are not crazy! The mental and emotional stress some transexuals face is not due to their gender identity. It is caused by the pressure put on them by society!

3. Transexuals are all prostitutes

Just because some transexuals work as prostitutes does not mean they all are!

4. Drag queens are all transexuals

Contrary to popular belief, most drag queens are not transexuals! Drag is an art, not a symptom of gender issues!

5. Transexuals are all loud

Just like any other group, some transexuals are extroverted, some are introverted. It’s ridiculous to assume all transexuals are loud.

6. Transexuals are all infected with AIDs

People who say such things need to stop talking.

7. Transgender people are all confused

On the contrary, transgender people are pretty clear about their own gender and sexuality. That makes them less confused than most people.

8. Transexuals are all weird

Being different from others does not make them weird.
