Did anyone else see the episode of CBS "Sunday", on June 8, 2014 on Transgender kids?

Bignuf Bignuf
I must admit, I had very little understanding or interest in what I perceived as "gender confusion" until I saw this episode this morning. Seeing these bright, happy children (and their parents) address the real tough issues with the genetic cards they were dealt was very eye opening. I have a lot more empathy and indeed, some admiration, for anyone dealing with such a tough and challenging personal thing, in the midst of a society which seems very far from receptive to the idea in any meaningful way. I really think even the gay and lesbian community have it far easier with much more visibility and acceptance now. Actually, the whole lifestyle for them is probably less a challenge since it is a bit more "clear cut"...or so it appears to this plain old hetero lady.
In any case, did anyone else see this episode? Did it change your understanding of the Trans Gender individual?

Does this mean that you don't know any actual transgendered people?

Being hetero has nothing to do with gender. Gender and sexuality are two different things. Regardless of your gender choice, you can favor men, women, butch, femme, other, and none.

Also, the poll implies that people are transgender or cisgender. Gender isn't binary and includes people who identify as genderqueer or genderfluid, not specifically cis/trans.

Agreed.

Another thing, most trans- people don't care to be "admired" for being trans-. They're just people and deserve the same respect as everyone else, not special treatment.

Wow, that is a COMPLICATED answer I am going to need to re-read after some sleep. Do I know any "Transgender people"? Nope...at least none that I know of. I have some gay friends of both sexes. My hubby and I are in the wedding party for an upcoming marriage of a good friend who is gay and his partner. We also have two couples we frequently socialize with who are, in one case, legally married lesbians and in another case, very long term committed woman. However, if we have ever met anyone who is "transgender" (living outwardly as a woman, while being biologically male, or living as a male while being biologically female), we certainly had no clue about it. Forgive me if the poll implies my ignorance on the issue. As I said, I never gave it much thought, but for some reason it is "all in the media" lately, and this one spot on Sunday was very illuminating for me.

I will add one more bit of information, since your post implies that such lifestyles are so common I should know some. I have been seeing people at their most vulnerable and often with minimal clothing, due to my career, for almost 35 years. In that time, I have seen one "lady" who turned out to be "equipped" as a male, and he identified himself as a "cross dressing man" (the term "MAN" was his). Beyond that, I never had a single person who "self identified" as anything other then what their "reproductive organs" would have identified them as! It may be that in the setting I work, no one felt the need to explain further, and that is fine, but I honestly have never, ever, in my fifty years of life, had someone tell me that they were "transgender" or "fluid gender" or any such thing. Yes, Gay males and females, and a couple of woman I know who would enjoy pleasure however it came to them (from a male or female), but that was it.

Maybe I have lived a sheltered life, but having traveled to over 30 countries and having given lectures around the globe, I didn't think I was living in that much of a bubble!!!

NO....I didn't mean that. I meant I admired the fact that these kids seemed amazingly well spoken and confident in their own "skin", despite what they themselves identified as living a difficult lifestyle that "we wouldn't have chosen", due to the barbs thrown at them by the rest of society. We all have some issues that catch hell from others, and when people can come out from that situation and be happy, productive folks....sorry, I DO admire that. It is no different then admiring the blind lawyer I know, who persevered when others said "no you can't", or my gay friends, who despite many people casting aspersions on them, set up a loving, stable household that many "hetero" couples could use as a model!!! I am NOT admiring my friend for being blind, or my friends for being gay, I am admiring them for doing what it takes to be "the same as everyone else" despite the fact that society does not make it easy sometimes!!!

You may say that you're not, but what you are doing is admiring them for just that. You're not admiring them for their accomplishments, you're admiring them for their accomplishments BECAUSE you assumed that they would not be capable otherwise.

And people who are trans- are not "doing what it takes to be the same as everyone else," they're being who they are, which is different and variant, and there is nothing wrong with that.

No, you may not have been sheltered, but not admitting to your ignorance is a shame and not very wise. Most people are ignorant to something or other. Just because you haven't seen it or witnessed it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Historically, trans- people, genderfluid people, and intersex individuals have existed for many, many years. They may not have had this terminology, but they were around for a long time.

Once again, no. I am sorry I am not making myself clear. Anyone who has some attribute or issue that makes them have a set of "roadblocks" placed in front of them by society, must work harder, be better, hold up stronger, and all in all "prove more", just to get to the same place. I have NO reason to doubt anyone's capability. I am a realist, in that a kid who doesn't "conform" to the "average" is going to have a harder time of it then one who does. Sorry...that is a plain, simple reality. Thus, I admire the tenacity they showed and the "grace under fire" they seemed to display, in living up to their potential, despite the roadblocks cast in front of them, however unfairly.

I hope I made myself more clear this time.

Good golly, I didn't mean to open a can of worms. I knew Transgender people existed. I just said I didn't pay a lot of attention to the issue. I never personally met anyone who said they were such, and I sure don't ask people I meet or know.."Oh, by the way, are you Transgender"??? However, my lack of interest dissolved a bit in seeing that piece on TV. I suspect it was eye opening to a lot of "average, hetero, not involved with that lifestyle" types. I suspect all the variations on human sexuality have been around as long as human have, and all you need do is go back a SHORT span of time (relative to human kind) to the Greek and Roman era, where "sexual identity" was far more "fluid" and many more combinations were accepted as "totally normal".

I just fear I didn't explain myself clearly in this post, as I was just saying I thought it was a great bit of informative TV (for a change), and that was all. Sadly, whenever one crosses over into commenting on anything concerning the different "variations" of sexuality, beyond the average hetero stuff, it seems to open a beehive, even if someone is saying they have learned something they didn't know.

You want me to say I am "ignorant" on the topic? Fine. "I am ignorant on the topic". That is why I found the information interesting. I enjoy learning. It is one thing I enjoy about the Forum here. Does that somehow make it better, if I have not been steeped in one lifestyle or the other???

You, I suspect, have a skewed view of the majority of the worlds people, who, if you polled them, would likely say they did NOT know anyone who was "Trangendered". When one is "in" a certain group or community, it is easy to think that "everyone else" knows about it. That is simply not accurate. Let me take this a step further. Just due to your post, I did my own little test. I asked that very question at work of the thirty people who were in my "space" today working together (we talk about all kinds of things...this was a pretty innocent question compared to some). Not one of these thirty people, men and woman ranging in age from late 20's to mid 50's, and every single one with either a college degree and additional schooling, or advanced post graduate degrees, had ever "personally met, or knew of" anyone who was "trangender". All of them knew what it was (and many were surprised at the recent spat of "press attention" to that issue), but not one single person had met anyone who identified themselves as such. Maybe my tiny sample group is wrong, but I am going to conduct a poll right here on EF to see how that pans out!!!

Meanwhile, I admire you ALL for being here...straight, gay, trans, mixed, spun, fluid, squishy, multiplied, cloistered, stranded, celibate, televised, single, married, conjoined, non human, non earthly, ethereal, half unicorn or whatever!!!

Thanks for the links. I will sure look them up when I have time to absorb the material. As for lecturing around the world...it is NOT on this topic!!!! Believe me, what I lecture on is far more....um....let me see how to put this....."cut and dry". That works.
(I am a pretty accomplished female professional, from a family of accomplished woman, and who raised a daughter to likewise be a successful surgeon...and I have never ever taken a "feminist studies" course, and nether did my daughter. Sorry, at least when I was in school, I had no desire to "buy" what they were "selling" in those courses. I found my path to "equality and respect" far better suited by kicking ass in Chemistry and Biochemistry, Biology and Physiology. I read enough of the material from others who were in those "feminist studies" courses to know it was not my cup of tea. If that offends anyone, and I have no doubt it will, I am just being honest about how I felt at the time, and still do, without regrets). If other woman find education and fulfillment in those areas, more power to them. I wish them well, but it doesn't ever seem to hold my interest.

I actually find it silly, and baffling, that people feel they need to flaunt ANY lifestyle in public. I, like many people, could care less who you sleep with. I don't care who you love. If you work, pay your taxes, don't abuse me or mine, then we are on good terms. Period. I won't walk in a parade with a sign saying "straight, married, hetero pride" and I don't need to see a sign concerning your sleeping habits. Who cares????!!!! Why is anyone doing this? That I totally, completely, don't get. I suspect it is simply that when one feels isolated and in the minority, then they feel power, and even "average normality" (whatever that is), when they see others in definite support of their same situation, whatever that is. Beyond that, I cannot fathom why anyone's sexual preferences needs to be, or should be "put on parade"!?! I would actually love to hear from people that have participated in such public events as to why they did, and how they felt it was appropriate. I wonder how much these demonstrations actually hurt general public acceptance of their lifestyle, verses helps it?

I found my path in the physical sciences. However, my university's graduation requirements included humanities, social sciences, professional writing, computer programming, and fluency in a foreign language, as well as nonspecific courses that had to focus on non-Western culture, feminist studies, creative expression, and ethics of science and technology.

But this isn't a pissing contest. Why are you placing the term feminist studies in quotes, as well as the words buy and selling? Yet you incorrectly use capital letters for chemistry, biochemistry, etc. You're implying that you don't consider feminist studies a valid intellectual pursuit.

If your daughter's a successful surgeon (as you likewise may be), she should've studied intersex issues in med school, especially with regards to genetics and endocrinology. And her psychiatric rotation should've covered gender identity.

Being transgendered isn't a lifestyle. As has already been pointed out in this thread, gender is separate from sexual preference. Or do I have to show you how to search Google for that?

Apparently, you like bright happy transgendered children when they're on TV but heaven forbid they grow up and march in a parade.

Please stop hiding behind a pretense of education and experience when your posts clearly scream ignorance.

Sexual orientation is put on parade because queer people historically and currently are oppressed. "Sleeping habits"? Since when did being gay or lesbian be just about fucking and not include falling in love, holding hands, or wanting to form a family and have kids?

So you're not ok with a parade that includes gay parents, ministers, teachers, doctors, and soldiers, within and supported by their community. Yet you're not offended by anyone creating an anonymous online persona and posting dozens of messages espousing a love of buttsex.

Honest, this is not and never was intended as a "pissing contest". It wasn't even intended to be controversial in any way. I saw a great program on TV and wanted to see if anyone else had a chance to see and enjoy a bit of expansion of their insight.

As for my undergrad background; yes, I took all the required and many "non required" courses, all of which you list above. However, when I went to school (eon's ago), there was very little in the way of "Feminist Studies" and what was offered were very radical, anti male, anti "the system" in general, courses. It was a very, very different time and yes, they were trying to "sell" an agenda in which I was not buying in. It was all about how society was "repressing them" and "the evil male society was holding down their opportunities". I figured instead of sitting in a lecture about the unbreakable "glass ceilings" I would simply take my hammer and bust through them. This, I may add, I did...entering a field not typically followed by woman, even today. Thanks for pointing out my incorrect use of capital letters, in chemistry and biochemistry...etc. Sorry, writing was never my strong point, at least not letter writing. I have enough published works, and graduated undergrad and graduate, with enough honors to not lose a lot of sleep over it. I am glad they developed "spell check" and "grammar check". It didn't exist when I was slugging through my education.

As for my daughter, yes, she had classes in genetics and endocrinology in her study of medicine. I have plenty of background in that myself. I have had a good working knowledge of dozens of different gender identity issues, and to take it a step further, as a plastic surgeon, my daughter learned some techniques for helping patients with gender reassignment as part of her training. Again, however, all that is well and good. It still does not change, in any way, the fact that I personally never met anyone that I know of, or that identified themselves in any way as "transgender". Why is that so difficult a concept to understand? Why would I lie about such a matter? I have nothing to lose or gain, either way.

Somehow, my stating that I saw this show, and it gave me some new insight into, and appreciation for people dealing with this issue is being translated into "I never heard of such a thing", which is totally and completely not accurate, nor what I said anywhere here.

Why does this topic have to be so damned "heavy"?

Yes, you have it right. I flunked out of high school, work at minimum wage digging trenches and am greatly insulted now that you find my lifestyle beneath you.

As for these bright, happy children growing up to march in a parade...I don't think anyone needs to march in a parade touting their sexual orientation. I suspect a number of other people feel the exact same way. Why does anyone need to know this, or have it flaunted at them? I would be just as offended by a straight man and woman making out on a ride at Disney as I am when I see a gay couple doing it. It is unnecessary and I simply don't see the cause or benefit from it. That is just my opinion and I believe I am entitled to it, as are you to yours. I know for a fact my gay friends happen to feel as I do about this, and don't think a "gay pride float" has any business in a St. Patricks Day parade any more then a heterosexual pride float does. We have had this discussion before.

I will apologize for my use of the world lifestyle, I don't have time to re-read my prior posts this moment, but I probably meant "sexual preference".

Ha. I love this comment. So, who is now "stereotyping"? My friends, who are committed and gay, and are, indeed, getting legally married, were railing at the fact a "gay pride" float was being...using their words "forced into a venue where it had no business being". They are far more "conservative" then me on a host of issues pertaining to "societal norms"!!! Sorry, you called this one very incorrectly. When photos of some peoples "dress" for a gay pride parade were shown on the news, their comment was "we are so sorry, this really does not represent everyone in the gay community, it really doesn't". Their words, not mine. That may be why they are good friends of mine. We agree on ninety five percent of issues we discuss, and those we don't agree on, we can have a civil, respectful disagreement about and still leave as friends.

I hope this thread is likewise, just too friendly people having an animated discussion.

I will be the first to stand up and say that oppression is wrong. I believe in peoples privacy and so long as no one is being hurt, to live whatever lifestyle they wish. I fully support my gay friends, or anyone else "holding hands, kissing, falling in love, having a family and raising kids". Maybe my standing up as part of a wedding between two gay men doesn't convey enough of that fact to you? Sorry.

However, let's be clear. Being gay is about a sexual choice of partners, as is heterosexual or any other choice of WHO to love.

What does "gay" mean to you? Is that not two men or two woman who wish to partner, verses a man and woman? Thus it is about, at the core, the sexual (or gender) choice. What does that have to do with putting it in public in a parade? That is the part I don't get.

If gay parents or kids want to march in a Christmas parade...awesome. If they want to march in a parade pertaining to the harvest of wheat in Iowa, so be it. But a parade devoted to a sexuality or partner choice issue?

Finally, for some odd reason, you keep wanting to attack me personally. This site is not marching on an open street in front of anyone and everyone who may, or may not, wish to be exposed to certain ideas and concepts. If you are here and reading these posts, you are an adult (hopefully) and here by choice. It is a forum about things sexual and yes, I have been open about my own experience and choices, as have others.

Notice, I have not said word one about any post or ideas you have made here?

People who think share ideas, and can even disagree. When they lack ideas or the ability to defend their ideas they seek to either shut others down or else attack them personally. It is not something I ascribe too and something I find to be very distasteful in any setting.

Again, sorry to have ruffled any feathers. This post was never, ever intended to be controversial.

No, because instead of discussing the issue at hand, your arguments rely on claims on education or "I have gay friends of both sexes" as if any anecdotal experiences somehow justify any of the obtuse comments you make, in this or in several dozens of other threads.

My posts and those by Sir address specifics. Your response has to be on the defensive, even going so far as to start a poll whining about how the fun in the forums is gone. You've explicitly marginalized gays, lesbians, the transgendered, and feminists; you've dug yourself into a hole and your followup posts make that hole deeper.

I disagree. The problems with this poll include a repeated confusion between gender and sexual orientation, as well as an assumption that the gender binary is normative when the subject matter specifically involves people outside that norm.

I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that dv8 posted the image to show that there are trans- people in existence, in your face, around you, everywhere. Claiming ignorance because you "haven't met" someone with that attribute is honestly just poor discussion skills. I haven't met anyone with klinefelter's syndrome, but I still know what it is and how to respect it (just as an example).

I am astounded that with being a well-educated and supposedly well-read individual, Bignuf, that you lack the education of trans- and intersex individuals (which, though I mention them in the same sentence, are completely different).

dv8 mentioned something important, and that is that you are relating being trans- to being gay or lesbian, when gender identity and romantic/sexual orientation have nothing to do with each other. Gender identity is how a person relates to the world around them and within themselves as they understand their gender to be. Romantic or sexual orientation is what a person is attracted to romantically or sexually in their relationships.

I still would like to repeat the idea I mentioned earlier, and that is to stop pitying people who are different or variant. We're sick of it. We're tired and annoyed that people pat us on the back for simply being gay, lesbian, trans-, DIFFERENT. Honestly, we just want to be left alone. I'm glad that you feel inspired, but kindly shove it, maybe anally if that's what you prefer. We're not here to inspire you, we're here for the same reason that you are - to live.

I'm not going to attack you personally, Bignuf, because I do not see a point or purpose. I am simply giving you information that is true. You can disagree with me and dv8 all you want, but that does not change the truth of what we say. Getting defensive over it does not change what is real.

I also posted the link to the pictures to show that trans people are of all sorts, kinkster and vanilla, flamboyant and shy, queens and bois, and even people who blend right in. Furthermore, many of the parade signs echo the issues and challenges that trans people face; although that topic was mentioned in the original post, Bignuf's reaction to a social display of trans pride reveal her true character. Her posts reflect an "us vs. them" mentality, treating people outside her norm as "other".
