#4 Transgendered Courage?
Transgendered people are often seen as courageous; they have the guts to take radical steps to become the people they really are. But I don’t see them as any different from people, mostly women, who get nip-and-tuck surgeries, botox, and breast enlargements. After all, they too take radical steps to become the people they feel they really are – youthful and sexually attractive.

Notable Trans Stories from 2012

MIS DESEOS SON ORDENES
Ultimamente se nos han ido cumpliendo varios deseos (¿o deberíamos decir derechos?) que parecían inalcanzables. Pero siempre hay más. Aquí va entonces una selección de pedidos realistas y delirantes para el año que empieza. Lohana quiere ser presidenta; Wenceslao, que lo amen; Elian, gotitas para los ojos; Marlene, no dar tantas explicaciones; Mónica y Vanesa, que la Iglesia no discrimine, Valeria quiere ser mutante; José María pide igualdad para tomar en vaso. Cuando los dioses nos quieren castigar, escuchan nuestras plegarias, ya decía eso Oscar Wilde, así que, para todxs, ¡feliz 2013!
