Transgender people go through a lot in life. Not only do they have to deal with the normal problems and obstacles that everyone else faces (i.e. bills, high school, jobs, love lives), but they also have to put up with a lot of other difficulties and jump through a lot of hurdles that cisgender people have the luxury of not needing to do. So here's a list of things that most trans guys have to go through. And I am saying "trans guys" because half way through this list I realized I was talking from experience and most of these are tailored toward transgender guys. (Sorry, ladies!)
Just thinking about this song gives me goosebumps. Badflower became one of my favorite bands after hearing this song, just because of the rawness and absolute power that was put into this song. And after hearing this incredible piece of music, I had to listen to the rest of their album, OK, I'm Sick, and I fell in love with that.
Being transgender isn't a glamorous thing. I think a lot of people have a very long list of misconceptions about transgenderism and the LGBT community in general. Since LGBT culture has become a lot more mainstream as of late, some people have come to the very misinformed conclusion that queer identities are a passing trend. This has further advanced the stigmatizations from religious groups and people, and from right-leaning, Trump-loving people. It has also reduced queer visibility. The irony is that since queer culture is becoming more present in modern times, it's also made the actual community more invisible.
Eminem has been controversial for his entire career, but now he's making news by doing things that Republicans don't like. Which is, sort of, different? Revival has been pretty unpopular with Eminem fans, and most hip hop fans, too. And yes, it's definitely not his best album, at all. Like I'd say it's one of the worst. But nothing could beat Relapse, maybe, probably, I guess, we'll see.
i’m always gonna feel like you’ll choose someone else over me.
