Selepas berbicara dengan lelaki dan wanita trans baru-baru ini mengenai pengalaman memeritkan yang mereka terpaksa harungi, kami meneliti bagaimana kumpulan transgender betah di Malaysia dengan memahami kesan undang-undang serta norma-norma sosial yang berkaitan dengan kehidupan sebagai seorang transgender.

After speaking to a trans man and trans woman recently about the painful experiences they face, we took a look at how the transgender group copes in Malaysia, by understanding the legal ramifications and social norms linked to life as a transgender.

Being born and living as a trans woman is not easy. It is not something that I like doing, and certainly not something that I choose to do for fun. In fact, it’s far from fun.

There is a constant battle within me, an uphill battle which gets steeper and steeper every step of the way, and I’m not equipped with the right gear to win it. Every step I take is a learning process, and I’m just a person trying to get to higher ground when everything else seems to be pushing me down.

Understanding Sex and Gender: Distinctions, Assumptions and Violence

thegblogteam No Comments

Understanding sex and gender is imperative in ending violence and marginalization of transgender persons.

Overwhelming evidence affirms that gender identity is an innate part of our being, and sex and gender are two separate categories that all human beings have. Neither sex nor gender are binary, meaning consisting of only two identities.
