Transgender Youth.

I have been watching a lot of video and vlog on Youtube about transgender especially among youngsters. No I am not planning on to be a transgender but I am here to highlight the issue on transgender among youth. Transgender itself is a very sensitive issue in our society. It is against our norm and religion even to ever dream about dressing up as the opposite sex. I am not highlighting this issue that we faced in Malaysia but to share my opinions and thoughts about transgender around the world.

In case some of us still are still oblivious enough to not  know or aware what transgender mean (big chance you live under a rock or something), it is an adjective which defined as denoting or relating to a person whose self-identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender. In other words, a boy who wants to be a girl and vice versa.

Transgender are humans and there is no such need for us to discriminate them unless you are such a religious bastard who thinks banishing other will secure you a place in heaven, amen to that sister. May God bless your sacred soul. A transgender faced thousands of problems in their life and us bringing them down is not helping them at all. It is human nature to help one another and that is if and only if you are classifying yourself as a human being. I know I’m one though and not a perfect one either.

We have many flaws and transgender feel the same as well. They wake up every morning feeling bad about them like there is something wrong. Waking at the wrong side of the bed is not their only problem, being uncomfortable under their skin is one of the major problem they faced everyday. I bet some of us have ever felt that way at least once. I do and trust me it is the worst feeling ever. From what I learnt in the video and vlog that I watched, every young transgender are afraid and terrified of what the future may hold for them.

Blockers, hormones shoot and gender reassignment is probably one of the biggest decisions they have to make especially for the young transgender. Facing and making this decision is not as easy as doing algebra in Math class. They have to make this decision before puberty hits. It is the biggest decisions of their life. To either change their gender permanently or even to stay within the gender that God has provided for them.

It is hard making a decision that will affect how you will feel for the rest of your life. In their case, how comfortable they will be in their own skin. Suicidal thoughts and depression is the common problem they faced every single day. And you guys adding up to their problems is like icing to a cake.

Have you ever wonder what it is like to be in their position? To sleep at night and wishing you don’t have to wake up and face the world? I am pretty sure each and every one of us was born with a dash of empathy and as well as sympathy. Try using those particular ingredients in order for you to look at things in a different perspective.

Now here's a heartwarming statistics from the Youth Suicide Statistics.
More than 50% of Transgender youth will have had at least one suicide attempt by their 20th birthday.*
