Folks who want to be on our side sometimes parrot conventional wisdom and say, “transsexuals are born in the wrong body.”
Over the last many years, I realize I’ve come to deal with this particularly large piece of baggage in a variety of ways:
I believed it.
I rejected it.
I’ve turned it back on the speaker. (“Oh? Why do you say that?”)
I’ve reframed it. (See cartoon above.)
I’ve simply said nothing.
I’ve simply thought nothing more about it. Until I think about it….again.
So how do you all address this big piece of baggage? If you aren’t born in the wrong body, what story or stories do you tell about your body. (I feel another contest coming on……..)
