“Love Is In Da Blog” ~ Trans

My Darlings!

Today I am trying myself again on another sensitive subject: Being transgender.

For all those who are not aware of transgender people: They are those who are born in the body of one gender but are in reality the other. I know, it is difficult to get your head around what that might mean when you are born with the body of the gender you belong to.

A few weeks ago I saw a brilliant documentary (the link leads to an updated documentary about a transgender teen) on CBBC about a boy who was born in the body of a girl. He showed very openly and courageously what it meant for him. He also visited other transgender people and taught how different a transgender life is today than it was 30 years ago. I used to have a friend who started his transgender journey in that time frame and I know a little what it meant. Much has changed. Thank goodness. Still, there are many prejudices and often even outright violence against transgender people.

So today I want to celebrate the part of love with you that has to do with “gender”:

  • celebrate your own gender
  • celebrate the opposite
  • celebrate a friend who is transgender
  • celebrate something entirely different
  • celebrate…

you get the gist :-)!

  1. I have not used the β€œsee more” link with my poetry because I want it to be accessible, but this is of considerable length. And the tone changes dramatically where I cut it off. Also, it started as a reflection of being a veteran and the particulars of my military experience, but somehow it became something else, something about love. Perhaps it’s not the kind of love that you were prompting for, and to be honest, I wrote this whole thing before I read the prompt, but the end of this massive poem is my simple answer to your topic regardless. I hope it resonates with some.

      “Love Is In Da Blog” is meant to be open for creativity and creative expression about love. You do not need to follow the prompts. And your poem is very welcome. It’s a lot of food for thought and I believe very true. Even though a truth hard to swallow.
