Geena Rocero is a Filipino Transgender woman who had the chance to talk on TED, a talk that marked a beginning of a global change towards accepting transgender women. And now she comes back to Philippines for so many reasons, recently  she attended the global celebration of IDAHOT (International day against homophobia and transphobia).

Her talk on TED doesn’t just end there, which is another reason why she comes home to Philippines and that is to have conversations,  and talks that would give opportunity to share her story and let the Filipino community understand what Filipino transgender people need.  This interview from rappler is the start  of those conversations and hopefully more, so Filipino community will understand better the nature of being transgender.

# Some guy: “Hey your photos looks beautiful!
# Some transsexual woman: “ahhhh thank you.. 🙂
# Some guy: “I have a question, I hope you do not mind, so when did you decided to be girl?

Oh,oh! That is a very common mistake men do when dating transsexuals online. I do not know if it has something to do with our advanced era, that people tend to forget considering people’s emotions? I am also afraid to generalise men, that it is natural for them to be unable to read women’s emotions, and I do not want to label them as insensitive. After all, there are those who are knowledgeable about transsexual women.

Telling your story and sharing it to everyone is the bravest thing that one can do. Much more if your life is considered a taboo in a community like transsexuals. But a brave woman, a transgender herself, shares her humble life story through her book Redefining Realness by Janet Mock. Janet’s book will surely be an eye opener to all of us, transgender or non transgender people, and her book will surely serve as an inspiration. A young vibrant woman that has so much to give to the trans community through her book. But what will be the impact of this modern woman’s book to the community? Here are my thoughts.

What results do you usually receive every time you search for transsexuals, transwomen, transgenders or any keywords relating to it? Often you see that the first page of the results are filled with pornography and escort services. Try opening a site or two and you will be routed to a page/s showing  sexually explicit images. A dazzling word shemale on your screen with a couple of pornographic video clips. On on a separate page, you will be given a menu not for food, but for almost naked transsexual women and some are fully naked trans women, doing escort services.  A very good example to this are transsexual dating sites, which are commonly used as decent facade covering these dirty images.

Well of course this does not apply to all transsexual women for there are pre-op, post-op, and non-op transsexuals. And I do not wish to offend transsexual women or anybody through my article. This these exist and it is just a mere good to know article specially to men who are interested of dating a transsexual women or already dating.  It is quite awkward and funny to talk about this but admit it, it is interesting and also exciting.
