Got Gifts?

gifts Monica wrote, “I am trying to write a blog/essay on how being transgender is a gift and not a curse. The massive suicide rate amongst transgender people compared to the rest of the population suggests that being transgender is seen as a curse by transgender people... and by non-transgender people alike (hence the lack of support from the family and friends of transgender people).

“If we can focus on the positive side of being transgender and see the unique gifts that we have, then maybe we can help swing the general public's view of us as being a bunch of perverts to being truly gifted people. We can only win over the general population one person at a time. It is an arduous process and each of us must put in some time in the trenches to help change things. This is my attempt!

“So, what do you see as the gift(s) of being transgender? What unique perspective and irreplaceable view of life do we have? Just saying in the words of the Joni Mitchell song, ‘I look at life from both sides now’ is a bit vague and non-specific. We need more details to convince people.

“Would love to hear your views!”

Throwback Thursday: Cross His Heart, Too

playtex_parody

Today's Throwback Thursday goes back nearly 20 years when I started doing trans art and posting my creations on my old blog nFem (anybody remember nFem?).

I originally created this Playtex ad parody in black and white because (1) the copy of the original ad that I had to work with was in black and white and (2) even if I had a full-color version of the ad, my Photoshop skills back then were not good enough to create a reasonable facsimile of a real ad.

Recently, I found the full-color version of the ad and now that my Photoshop skills have improved, I decided to reboot the Playtex ad parody that I created before the turn of the century. I hope you enjoy it.

By the way, the original ad was not a Playtex ad; rather it was an ad for Sears bras and girdles (Sears had everything).
