LGBT IS Basic Humanity

LGBT (or GLBT ) is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. … It may be used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender, instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.

Those that don’t understand shouldn’t discriminate but learn and Educate.

Discriminate

to make a distinction in favor of or against a person or thing on the basis of the group, class, or category to which the person or thing belongs rather than according to actual merit; show partiality:

Educate

to develop the faculties and powers of (a person) by teaching, instruction, or schooling.

to qualify by instruction or training for a particular calling, practice, etc.; train: to educate someone for law.

to provide schooling or training for; send to school.

to develop or train (the ear, taste, etc.): to educate one’s palate to appreciate fine food.

to inform: to educate oneself about the best course of action.

Gender dysphoria

(GD) is the distress a person feels due to their birth-assigned sex and gender not matching their gender identity. People who experience gender dysphoria are typically transgender.

Can you imagine looking in a mirror every day of your life expecting to see a male or female only to see the opposite?

What if everyday task that we think of as simple really wasn’t so simple?

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

None of us that do not have someone Transgender close to us have NO IDEA what they face.

Not only in some places they have to choose which room to use that they can feel more comfortable, but what they may encounter from others while just trying to do something that shouldn’t be given a second thought.

The biggest human rights issue facing the trans and gender diverse community is safety. Hundreds of transgender people are killed around the world each year.

I can’t express enough as a father of a transgender son, but most of all as a HUMAN the distress this brings me!

There has to be a point that WE ALL as humane beings say ENOUGH!

humane. A humane person is one who shows great compassion and caring for others, including animals, and who tries whenever possible to alleviate another’s suffering. … While the word is derived from the word human, the sad fact is that a person can be human without being humane.

  1. An interesting and informative post – it is just this sort of information that dissolves intolerance. And you are right, most people would not be aware of the simple challenges and violence associated with being transgender – I certainly wasn’t, so thank you for opening my eyes :o)

  2. Simply by respecting him, loving him and supporting him, you’ll be providing an excellent example of what it truly means to be humane. He will have an excellent role model and grow up seeing that it’s ok to be himself and love himself for who he really is and learn how to stand up for and represent for himself. Lovely post. It’s lovely to see the perspective of a parent who of a child who is trans.
