It may Incite some people or excite others but should gay persons and passable transgendered persons wear some kind of identification so that the rest of the world know who they are and not embarrass themselves by liking them or, in some cases, even to communicate with them? A friend, who is trans was having her hair done at a popular salon when a young woman, who was being trained by her hairdresser, with a colorful elaborate tatoo on her arm, began talking and seemed to have a lot in common. Both liked lesbian literature, tatoos, and feminist ideology. After the break, the trainee who had been gentle before, began making several mistakes. Tatoo girl soaked the back of her shirt while shampooing my girlfriend, pulled her hair while combing it out, and left the hair dryer in one spot so long it burned her scalp. It appeared that one of the transgirl’s regular stylists told Tatoo girl that she had been male before changing her sex and she felt duped then angry. At the end of the session Tatoo girl took a brush and changed the style of the transgirl’s hair to make her look less feminine. This treatment could have easily been avoided if there were some way, even for gays, to tell the gender and sexual orientation. Oh, to make this scenario more interesting or realistic as it may be, transgirl has had several boyfriends who beat her up after learning she had been different. What are your thoughts?
