    I'm like this and that's not a problem

    by Fan Grande

    Imagine that you wake up one morning with your biological sex changed. Close your eyes for a moment and think about it. I’M LIKE THIS AND THAT’S NOT A PROBLEM narrates the effort that a trans person has to go through to be. Being trans is not a choice. Not a whim. Trans people do not choose to be born trans, and have the right to have their own identity, because the right to identity is one of the fundamental rights of every human being. A right needed to benefit from other fundamental rights. Being trans is not something that happens to others, it is something that happens to this society and this society needs to embrace diversity as the only possible way out of intolerance, which is the seed of transphobia.
