Attention: Lesbians, gays, bisexuals, pansexuals, trisexuals, asexuals, transgender, transsexuals, genderqueer, cisgenders and the rest of the human spectrum.
This is Rad. Rad identifies as a lesbian, and she is 100% female. Recently she has taken the leap into telling one of the biggest secrets of her life.
She was a male to female transgender.
Yes, she was born male and identifies now as female and has recently completed ALL the surgeries in becoming who she is now: Rad, the woman we all know today.
Since Rad has come out as mtf on tumblr, with the love and support of her (not yet, but more than likely soon) girlfriend, Chelsea Skye, she as well as her girlfriend have received nothing but hate and threats from the anons of tumblr.
She is being told how she isn’t a woman, and how she is confused and needs help and being disrespected just for being who she is.
Her girlfriend on the other hand has been getting messages calling Rad horrible names, and telling Chelsea how she is a fake lesbian for dating a mtf.
THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
If someone identifies as female. They are female. If someone identifies as male, they are male. If you don’t understand it, ask.
DO NOT ATTACK SOMEONE FOR BEING WHO THEY ARE. IT IS THEIR LIFE NOT YOURS.
On tumblr in the trans* community we’ve seen too many good people fall in fear of being who they are. Nobody deserves to hear these things, and nobody deserves to be told they are something they are not, and absolutely nobody deserves to be attacked by grey faces with nothing but ignorance and negativity to say.
Rad, you are an absolutely beautiful woman, and you and Chelsea are absolutely the most beautiful couple I’ve ever seen. Don’t ever think you aren’t woman enough, don’t ever think that you will never be enough; because you are. I sincerely apologize for the ignorance of tumblr users and the way that they are treating you and Chelsea.
Please do not let the anons of tumblr get to you or make you feel down, scared or alone. We as the tumblr trans* community and allies have your back.
Reblogging again for those of you who didn’t see.
