What Is The Real Me?
Kate Bornstien started a discussion on Twitter today on what areas of our lives do people consider us real and in what areas do they consider us fake. A very important question for trans-gender and gender queer people as our lives often depend on how other people see us. If we are perceived as fake or deceivers many people fell justified in attacking us. Just as important is how we see ourselves; I struggle with feelings of being some sort of fake all the time. That is the sort of thing that can lead to deep depression and even thoughts of suicide.
