Feeling ugly

It’s taken a long time for me to accept myself.

I have felt ugly at times, and still do, I just have learnt to live with it…

I guess being Transgender will make this blog read a little differently.

I guess women feel ugly too at times, but then they always have people telling them how pretty they are… unless they’re ugly in which case then that means they have failed as women? I guess in the same way as men who’re not muscular, daring go getters are deemed to have failed at being men.

What a rubbish concept.

And just as women have felt locked out by men who think that being muscular and go getting as male only traits and they can shut women out, so men who want to enjoy fashion/make up are shut out by women who feel that these are traits that define womanhood and they shut men out.
