  1. If it were a choice I wouldn’t be trans . I am already discriminated against for being other minorities and adding being trans is the cherry on top. Feels like life is purposely trying to screw me over. I’m from the deep south. I’m Hispanic, neurodivergent, I’m a Satanist and a bit of a punk and being visibly queer doesn’t help because I either suffer and dress like a girl or I am happy dressing like a boy but get clocked at a trans person or just a crossdresser of some kind.

  2. Feels like a curse

  3. It’s a lovely sentiment, though the reality can be very brutal.

  4. Eh I’d describe it more as torture

  5. I don’t know about it being a gift, given years of dysphoria and doubting yourself only to ultimately be faced with transphobia once taking the plunge. It doesn’t feel like much of a gift.

  6. I may get downvoted. But I’m a trans and although I’m quite fine with it and try to enjoy life, being trans is nowhere near a gift.

    I live in an extremely trans and homophobic country and let me tell you, trans people have a really hard time just existing. Killings, suicide, domestic violence, forced marriages etc.

    I understand the graffiti is trying to be positive, but I can’t see being trans a gift.

  7. this is news to me

  8. This feels patronizing

  9. Totally feels like a gift

    this is going to tgcj

  10. I’d like to return it for store credit

    No the fuck it is not

  15. No. My existence being illegal on so many countries, so many more than gay people are, travelling by plane being terrifying and sometimes downright traumatising, having to live in a body that is simply incorrect and being acutely aware that my friends see me as a false version of myself, is not a goddamn gift.

  16. Like, no. Dysphoria sucks and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemies.

  17. Absolutely fucking not. There’s a love your scars sentiment to things but no, it’s not a fucking gift. It’s a nightmare.

    Infact, I write lore and one of the universe’s alien races went out of their way to find what was causing trans people and fixed it so that no one would ever have to deal with that lifelong suffering ever again. It’s inspired by my wish that I had never been born trans, I just wanted to be born a girl, why is that so fucking painful to deal with?

    Don’t ever tell me being trans is a gift.

  18. Then why do I have to suffer so much

  19. >Trans people are a gift.

    FTFY*

  20. Wish I could feel that way about it.

    I hope I can change it for something less lethal if possible…

  22. I understand that it’s meant to be a nice and positive sentiment, and maybe this is me being ignorant, but I would think the real gift would be trans people getting born the sex corresponding to the gender that they are?

  23. From a far it looks like it reads “Being trans is a gut”.

    And I’m like “Ja!”

  24. Can I get my money back, or do I have to take the store-credit?

    like, don’t get me wrong, it’s fine that I’m trans, but life would be a lot easier, if I didn’t have to deal with that on top of everything else going on in my life

  25. The fuck???

    Isnt it more like having to drive 5 hours to pick up a package that should have been delivered to you already? A fucking gift. Sure.

    This is not a fucking gift. It is a curse we would not wish upon anyone

  28. Being trans is not a gift, for me it is a lot of suffering and dysphoria. I would hardly call it a gift to be miserable.

  29. Wish I could feel like one

  30. How is it a gift?

  31. So, can I get the receipt so I can return it then? I’d rather have a sweater or a toaster or something

  32. Fuck that being trans sucks we’re always questioning our gender and who we are

  33. Respectfully nah it’s not

  34. Speaking from experience, I *strongly* disagree. Transitioning is a gift, sure. Being trans is not.

    It’s half gift half curse, in of itself I can’t imagine being cis but also it’s hard, and this society sucks sometimes

  36. Gift, in the German meaning of it more like.

  37. What part of it is a gift it’s just a struggle for me

  38. I’ve got nothing to add. Just a middle aged dad of 2 here. However, reading these comments has opened my eyes to the struggles trans people face.
    Edit: when people talk of it being a curse more than a gift, are they referring to the way people treat trans people, or are they referring to just the feelings that come from within.?

    Honestly it isn’t, I’m not trans but I’d imagine being born as something you aren’t and having a whole bunch of people tell you you’re that something must be just fuggin painful.
