I have been asked the question several times and seen this question posted on sights, “How do you love a Trans person”? This amazes me, arent we all individuals and different? But I will try and tackle it. We Trans people are like all other people, we want to be seen, heard, loved, felt, understood, adored, and we want someone who can get us and connect. You may think we are more complicated but actually we are all complicated. It takes someone caring enough to explore what makes you tick. Each person is different. Maybe a few things that we have in common best I can tell is that we want you to judge us for our spirit not just our physical bodies. We don’t want you to think you know who we are or judge us due to the body we were born in. We want you to get and respect our energy, our spirit and value that more then the exterior. We want you to understand that gender is not black and white and just let us be who we are and not try and put us in a box. We Don’t FIT! We want you to be willing and open to explore even though you don’t totally understand, because really we don’t totally understand, we are just being who we feel. Give us that FREEDOM! and we will give you the FREEDOM to be whomever you are. We can all be FREE, what an amazing concept. We are all forced by this confining society to be or present as things to please or fit into this convuluted world that are not really true to us. We all wear some mask and put them on to make it in this judgmental, conforming world in order to survive and have some simulation of success. You want to know how to love a Trans person… its really simple. I don’t really think its different from what ANYONE else wants. The FREEDOM to be who ever the fuck they are and be respected, seen, hear and loved in that. There is no easy way to fix this, there is no easy way to fly. These gender boxes are ingrained deep within our society and our training. We just do our best to try and understand each other, be open to one another and to walk this journey together giving each other room to be and grow, love and expereience and succeed. I want to care about you and your journey and I want you to care about mine. We are afterall, all connected weather that is hard to admit or not. Maybe I’m living in a dream, but I like my dream.
