Due to rumors flying around the net about Frank Ocean’s sexuality, he decided to post an open and honest letter to clarify some things.
haha his name is Christian. Shots fired
“It is an observation of the nature of reality. To say, ‘nothing is true’, is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say, ‘everything is permitted’, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.”
An inspiration video we watched in class. Take 20 minutes out of your day to watch. Trust me, it put some things in perspective.
In 2007, this report was covered by 20/20. No matter what your beliefs are about the subject of being transgender, you must admit that these interviews are a real eye opener. These children know who they are and will not be denied the identity they want for themselves and I find that inspirational to say the least. I take my hat off to their parents and siblings for being open minded and accepting. That’s not a trait reported on much in our day and time.
This report makes me pose this question to you. How would you handle your child if he or she was born transgendered? Would you be supportive or try to instill traditional social gender roles in your child?

Something to remember while watching:
Transgender is defined as identifying an with a gender other than the biological one.
This has nothing to do with sexuality.
