  24. 24.  Deceptive Transsexuals  Sex is “real,” gender is not.  Only MTFs exist  Transgender people are really just gay  Only gay people could fall in love with transgender people  Trans people don’t get happy endings  Being trans is a choice  Transsexuals don’t pass  Transsexuals are all caricatures of female/male-ness
  25. 25.  If you are unhappy with the constraints of your gender, don't challenge them. If you are tired of being stared at for snogging your same-sex partner in the street, have a sex change. … Also, those who "transition" seem to become stereotypical in their appearance - fuck-me shoes and birds'-nest hair for the boys; beards, muscles and tattoos for the girls. Think about a world inhabited just by transsexuals. It would look like the set of Grease.- Julie Bindel …one of the main problems that trans women face is the common belief that their femaleness and femininity are somehow fake or inauthentic. This view is constantly (re)emphasized in the mainstream media. Transsexual women are routinely portrayed “in the act of putting on lipstick, dresses, and high heels, thereby giving the audience the impression that the trans woman’s femaleness is an artificial mask or costume” (41). Their desire to be female is reduced to the pursuit of “stereotypically feminine appearance(s) and gender role(s),” which emphasizes that they are not real women, but men who are simply parading as women (41).-Julia Serano
  26. 26. ALWAYS respect a person’s identified gender. Please, don’t ask about: Old pictures/names “Can I see a picture of you on the worst day of your life? Can I see a picture of you at your fattest, at your ugliest, at your most broken out? With your worst haircut, maybe? Can I see a picture of you at your most depressed, your loneliest, your most self-hating? That’s the picture you’re looking at if you see a picture of me from before. So enjoy raking your eyes across all that sadness and misery!” –Calpernia Addams Other personal things, ie. about surgical status, sexual practices When all else fails, go with identified gender and treat us like people. 
