Shemale Porn, This Ain’t

You know what really worries me? Right now it’s this site. It’s a ‘topsites’ list of transgender related websites around the internet. I have my site on that list (and you can vote for me by clicking here if you like! hint hint!). I’m not disappointed that I’m not at the top, no, not that, it’s the fact that surrounding me are websites all with a different combination of the words, Shemale, Tranny, Escort, Hardcore, XXX, Porn. I’m disappointed because, blatantly not every transgendered individual out there is a sex obsessed porn star. Those people that know little about transgendered people are going to come onto that site and just see porn porn porn! How is this going to help improve the public image of transgenderism?

It’s a bit difficult to know what to do to be honest. I’m all for self expression and all that, and if these people decide they fancy showing off their bits and pieces to the world, then go for it. But I don’t like that they’re bringing me along with them. How can it be stopped? I think people just need to know the difference, the general public that is. I’m sure if you said the word “transsexual” to a random passer by and asked them to think of the first word that came into their head afterwards, it would be something like, shemale, Thailand, escort, drag queen. Things similar to that. I would, incidentally, like to try that out, I would be interested to hear the results.

Maybe I’m just being pessimistic about the whole thing, maybe people do realise that there are real people trying to live their lives as transsexuals out there. I don’t know, but to me it just seems that only a few members of the public will realise that.

I’ve thought about who or what is to blame for our lack of acceptance and I’ve come to the conclusion that it is nothing in particular. The reason transsexuals are immediately likened to drag queens is because of certain TV personalities. For example Paul O’Grady (UK) used to dress up as a woman and do a stand up routine for the purposes of entertainment. I’m not blaming him at all, he just did what worked for him. The reason he was on TV because he was confident, outgoing, interesting, different, these are some of the qualities that are needed for television personalities. People like me, fairly reserved transgendered folk are obviously not as good a choice as a TV personality because we’re probably not going to entertain the masses in the same way. Therefore we’re not really going to get noticed in the media world, and so here lies the problem. What can be done? Should 100_4092 (1)anything be done, or over time will it all sort itself out?

Well I hope I’m not ruining the whole premise of this post by posting a new picture of myself as a schoolgirl! Ah well, we all know it’s just a bit of fun, and non-transgendered folk are probably not going to find themselves here anyway.

 

Night! X

    There is nothing inappropriate about you posting school girl photos of yourself nor are you going counter to any premise you allude to. In a more accepting world you might very well be the schoolgirl you portray so well. Therefore you’re posting a better reality than the one imposed on you.

    Topsites are ugly remnants of the 20th century. Get your name off it, and get onto link exchanges with other blogs. There’s quite a few UK transgender blogs out there which aren’t written by twats.

    It’s just like I said in my previous comments. The T subculture has become (or perhaps always has been?) a warped, depraved, sex-obsessed group of people who don’t represent and are nothing like you or me.

    Be careful out there.
