9 things Transgender students experience..

1) Public bathrooms are a massive pain whilst in school..

Using the bathrooms in school are so awkward, simply because 99% of students in the school know that you’re transgender. The students only know that you’re transgender because in high school rumors fly around like wildfire! If you use the female toilets everybody looks at you and shouts for you to get out…But if you use the male toilets they all stare at you…All i want to do is go to the toilet and leave, that shouldn’t be hard should it?

2) When your friends stick up for you when being misgendered or bullied..

Having someone be there for you when someone is being very nasty is the best, simply because you know who to trust!

3) When people say ‘Why do you feel like a boy’….

That’s like me asking a non transgender person “why do you feel like a female”. I know who i am, weather i am female, male, gender non-conforming. It’s something you know, not how you feel.

4) Being late for a class because you had to walk around the whole campus looking for a suitable toilet…

“WHY ARE YOU LATE?” “YOU HAVE INTERRUPTED MY CLASS”….Sorry, i had to find a suitable bathroom where i wouldn’t be kicked out of or stared to death in.

5) Teachers asking you A LOT of questions about being transgender…

Miss, surly you shouldn’t be asking me this…

6) You get the odd group of people who start to make the jokes (which aren’t very funny!)…

“Oh look, its the gender bender”…

7) When the school has blocked all websites regarding gender identity…

Why do they block these websites? It’s not porn or anything. Students surly have the right to search LGBT + issues.

8) Having to get changed in the incorrect gendered rooms for physical education…

“Please can’t you let me use the correct changing room?”..”You’ve been getting changed in here for 5 years, so no.”

9) You start to become that student that everybody knows and they only know you because you’re transgender…

Wait, i am the only transgender student in the school? Well i must be special..NOT!
