Day 21 - Your views on the cis-gendered community
Monday 22nd April
Gosh, this is a very open question.
It all depends on the particular part of the cis-gendered community we're talking about.
If its ordinary people who simply want to get on with their lives and are prepared to let me get on with mine then I think they are just fine.
However, if its the idiots who pass their driving licenses and then forget how to drive or who seriously need to get their eyes tested because they can't see a cyclist wearing a bright red jacket and cut them up and stop their vehicles literally yards in front of the cyclist and who then proceed to reverse backwards almost flattening the cyclist at the second attempt, then I have only complete and utter disdain for them.
If its the people that comment on trans stories in newspapers and on websites who patently don't know what they are talking about and don't really know anything about what we go through then I simply wish that they could experience what we have to put up to and see how long it takes for them to start complaining about the way that they are treated.
For the most part hough I don't have any issues with the cis-gendered community, if they have an issue with me then as long as they are prepared to discuss it in a calm, rational way then I'm happy to listen to what they have to say and try to educate them.
