The pronouns that transgender people use may vary. One transgender woman may prefer to be called a she, instead of pronouns relating to their birth-assigned gender- a he. The same goes with transgender men, and bi-gender people have the choice to be called by both gender-norm pronouns or one or the other. The pronouns that transgender people use is at their own discresion (Beemyn 1-2). Transgender people, in general, DO NOT appreciate being called trannies gender benders, she-males, 'it's, or anything besides the pronouns they have confirmed as the ones they prefer.
Men have penis’s and women have vagina’s but it’s not that simply to those who believe they are truly a different gender than what they were born as. In Namaste’s work Transsexual, transgender, and queer we see the discrimination that transgender people face which I would have to face as well. “..Civil Status clearly stated that a male-to-female transsexual must undergo a vaginoplasty, the construction of a vagina, in order to change her name and sex.” (141) We see how it’s virtually difficult for transgender people to change their gender identities on certificates so even though they identify as male, female, or whatever the case may be, they still have to be seen as something they aren’t. Even the law is unaccepting of what human beings have the given right to do; be themselves. “State coverage paid for testicular implants in the case of a male who has lost his testicles, but did not allow for breast implants in the case of a woman who loses her breast.” (145) .
Many people would agree that men and women are complete opposites. Our physical appearances, actions, and behavioral patterns are frequently contrasted by researchers and the general population. However, with modern day feminism, and what some would call, a gender revolution, it can be difficult these days to hastily stamp labels and categorize men and women. On the other hand, it would be incorrect to deny the fact that there are a few conspicuous behavioral patterns which are known to appear within certain sexes, many believe that this is the reason why men and women tend to miscommunicate and have issues with the opposite sex. Regardless of sex or gender identity, no two humans think the same or behave the same; This is what makes each human being unique.
The latest figures released show that all in all, between 1970 and 1996 the number of divorced people has more than quadrupled. 10% of these children that witness this first divorce will go on to witness three or more family breakups. I am here to give my thoughts and opinions on the issue of now in this 20th century, the increased rate of children developing mentally without a fatherly figure in the family is harming the children's development.

Against Transgenders Transgender is when an individual tries to switch genders. The term “transgender” is becoming more and more well known throughout the United States. Research has proven that “…65% of Americans said they have a close friend or family member who is homosexual, while 9% said that they have one who is transgender” (Steinmetz 40). Many trans-individuals decide later on in their lives that they want to switch genders, and other people argue that they were born the wrong gender, making it a very controversial topic. “Living within a trans-identity can be a complicated situation for many different reasons” (Cronn-Mills 60).
One’s physical sex determines how that person will be treated for the rest of their lives, but a large majority of people find themselves left out because they’re not really a boy but not really a girl either. What if when a child is born, it was unclear what physical gender they were because their reproductive organs pointed to a boy, but also a girl? Or even vice versa. According to Julia Serano’s book Whipping Girl, these children are known as “Intersex”, which is a term used to describe individuals who are “born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that does not fit the typical definitions of male or female” (25). As an analogy, think of gender as a spectrum of color, where one color is "female" and another is "male."
Roe claimed that she had been raped and wanted an abortion but since there was never any evidence that a rape had ever happened Roe could not procure an abortion. Roe consulted with an attorney named Sarah Weddington and found the statues were unconstitutional because they infringed on her right to personal privacy, protected by the first, fourth, fifth, ninth, and fourteenth amendments. At this time Roe decided to take federal action against the District Attorney Henry Wade of Dallas County, Texas on her behalf and all other women in similar situations. Roe decided to go ahead with the case even though it would not help her pregnancy situation. Roe would later on give birth to the baby and put it up for
Many transgenders do not see themselves as “transgenders”, instead they are convinced and belief that they belong to the opposite sex but they were born in the wrong biological category or body. Most transgenders face many struggles in conforming with the normative demands and gender expectations and roles of the opposite sex. (citation beyond sexuality) That is why many transgenders are actually “more royalist than the king in matters of gender” says anthropologist Judith Shaprio (1991) It other words, transgenders excel at portraying or acting according to their new gender identity. They are able to successfully imitate the wanted gender
People say it is not right, and that it is unnatural, which I feel they think that they have to be twice as “perfect” as the heterosexual parents are. In this paper I plan to discuss the issues that Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgendered Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) families go through while trying to start a family of their own. The issues will range from adoption and the issues faced in trying to adopt a child, to custody battles and how sexual orientation could play a role in the “well-being” of a child, to how being brought up by a LGBTQ headed home could affect, if in any way, a child’s development. Society’s Effects on Gay Parenting As a LGBTQ headed family the pressures of society can weigh heavy on the way you raise your child. In a recent article written by Lev (2010) it was found that the LGBTQ headed families often felt extreme pressure to be sure to raise a heterosexual child or children as well as a child or children who behave in such ways as a “normal” person of their gender would typically behave.
Builders of our modern system needed these rights to be reserved. The argument being posed by objectors to the modern sections on gays and their bond through matrimony is simple. The objectors to the lack o... ... middle of paper ... ...y. The answer is yes. The ruling in my opinion will not be upheld and in fact overturned.
