I have been out as transgender for a little over a year and been on hormones for a year now and not once did I push an issue and throw into people’s faces that I am transgender and they need to see me as such.
For months now I have seen individuals push for things that are not really necessary…
I agree, though I am confused on the whole graduation gown thing..
I can’t think of hearing any laws or school rules that the gowns are gender-specific or not allowing transgenders/genderqueer people to wear them..
the only thing I can think of is people not wanting to make transmen wear a “gown”(even though cis men wear them??)
so I’m [really] confused on that, but I agree with the rest =)
I tried to read the original post, but it seems the OP deleted it.
But, at my school, they pretty much forced girls to wear a dress underneath, while guys got to wear pants. :/ Everyone had to wear the gown, though.
I asked if I could wear pants, and one of the teachers said yes, but the counselor and she was one of the people in charge of running the graduation.
It was a pain in the ass. I had to buy a dress just for that one time… >.>
