How many times we make fun by seeing a Transgender?? Aren't they human being??

Lucky You and Me

Once, I was recharging my cell phone at Pitampura Metro Station in Delhi. There were two transgenders along with me standing and recharging their phone. The moment they left, the shop keeper along with his friend burst out with their refrained laugh.

You must have realized by now, why did they laugh and whom they laughed on. How many times you must have seen people smiling while gazing at the transgenders, or passing ugly comments and how many times you yourself must have done the same.

I never understood why we make fun of people who are not so normal like us. For what we express our joy, being a normal one, that’s it? I mean why to discriminate among people when all are coming from the same source, cosmos. Who are we?? Why we think ourselves so superior?? Just because we are lucky.

Even in Science, this kind of discrimination is called as Genetic Discrimination. In our body, each of our characteristics and behavior is regulated by a unit called as gene and these genes are made up of different configuration of Nitrogen Bases. Now each of our characteristics and behavior is regulated by expression of this gene. We all have the same genome structure but it all depends which one is getting expressed.

You are lucky, your transgender gene is suppressed, what if it would have expressed, and you would also become one of them whom other people made fun at. Now, you realized how blessed you are?

We often see transgenders begging because we have not left any other jobs for them to do. Society feels reluctant to accept them the way they are. Vipanna Gabriel, a transgender, from Maharashtra says ‘’ Change. That is what we need in the system we live in. For transpeople, we need laws that protect us, the assurance and hope for a secure future and protection against violence and discrimination. Our people are dying so young. Their deaths reflect the ignorance, the corruptness and the lack of support of our legal, social, and family systems. We, as people in the society, are always ignored to give what we needed the most. ‘’

They are also Human Being, a gift from Nature, Cosmos. Stop humiliating them, they also bleed red, they also have emotions, they also get hurt, they also have tears as we so called normal/superior/lucky people have. All they need is love, care, friendship, a hand to console, an ear to listen to, few words to cheer them up, and a warm acceptance in this society. Let’s join hand together to spread the awareness among others, at least to the one sitting beside you, to give love and respect to them, because they deserve them equally as we do. Encourage them to work and study. What kind of Humans are we if we don’t know the meaning of humanity, compassion and love? And we called ourselves Wise Superior Race.

Share your views, so that even world can change their views.

Very well-written - and so well-put, my friend. I agree - live and let live. There's something in all off us that doesn't sit well with others. Let's learn tolerance, hmm?
Super page - well done, my friend.

Very well and rightly said maumita! So many evil things in society just overlooked and ignored when they are the cases needing immediate attention! Yes the message should be spread!

Heartflet, Maumita. The truth is many like to feel superior in some way or another to get some lift in their lives when they have nothing else to prove. That has been from time immemorial and needs a change in outlook that seems beyond us now. I see hypocrisy when some ridicule others for their beliefs too, but we are from same source, nature. And our Creator has not revealed Himself to anyone that I know of - siva
