We Are Not Defined By Our Genitalia

Download PDF


I’ve said this multiple times on this blog and will continue to say it until you peeps embed this point in your brain cells.   You need to focus on what’s between a transperson’s ears, not their legs.

I’m tired of repeating this obvious point ad nauseum, but if that’s what it takes for you recalcitrant gay and straight cis people and elements of the trans community to get it, so be it.

It’s none of your business what’s between mine or any transperson’s legs unless you wish to get intimate with us or have a long term relationship leading to permanent coupling.

Another point that needs to be stressed is that what’s between our ears and in our hearts is more important than what’s between our legs. Our genitalia shouldn’t be the major determinant defining us or the extent of a transperson’s civil and human rights coverage.

But I have to ask this question.   Do you cis people only define yourself by your genitalia?  Is your sense of manhood or womanhood defined by the genitals between your legs?

If you answered no to that question, then why do you insist on doing so to transpeople?
.
We are not defined by our genitalia.   We are at the point in the second decade of the 21st century of being beyond sick and tired of being sick and tired of people focusing on what’s between our legs.

How we express our gender identity to the world and whats between our ears determines who we are.
