The author of this article is terribly confused and the article itself is beyond disappointing. It is the 21st century, I can’t even fathom why there are still people out there that have issues with transgenderism and the queer movement in general. Somebody feeling as if they are trapped inside the wrong body has EVERY RIGHT to change in order to be comfortable in his or her own skin. Deciding to become a man or woman in order to feel HAPPY requires a large amount of courage, and for somebody to shut that person down is completely insensitive. The person who decided to write such a politically incorrect article is obviously confused about the feminist movement, and all LGBTQ social movements in general. Feminism is an incredibly vast concept that so many people don’t understand, it is difficult to start an argument and have such a strong opinion on something that you really don’t know anything about. I am not saying that I myself am not guilty of this, but I’ve learned that if I really don’t get something, I should research it. This woman, although formerly a man physically, chose to do something for herself in order to lead a happy and healthy life. We in NO WAY have the right to judge her. “Calling Bruce Jenner a Woman” is not only embracing what the LGBTQ movement is about, but it is also inspiring so many men and women out there that are confused about their sexuality. I wish articles like this didn’t exist, but then again it goes to show that we as a society have so much to learn.
Okay so I just want to clarify that I am not one of those girls who pines for anyone. I actually find myself getting irritated with women or men who sit there and make their love life their one and only priority. I am completely content with being alone.
However, my friend and I had a conversation today that I feel is necessary to share with the world. I am terrified of falling for somebody. I completely shut down when the opportunity comes around. I love the chase, but when I realize there is a mutual attraction there, I feel unsatisfied. I really believe that if I were to be single for my entire life, I’d be okay. But, that’s not what I consider an ideal lifestyle. I used to be terrified of being alone, now I’m too comfortable with it. I don’t think too much into guys anymore, but when I do.. I think nonstop about it. So, I’ve put walls up in order to protect myself. I have no idea what I want. Sometimes I want casual relationships, sometimes I want serious ones, and sometimes I don’t want anybody. When I start crushing on someone, it doesn’t go much farther than one hang out or a couple nice texts and conversations.
I don’t know how to do this whole dating thing. I don’t have the courage to make the first move, and usually guys don’t care enough to make one either. No effort is put into anything anymore.
I am in a predicament, and I just needed to share it.
