Default louis theroux BBC2 - has he helped you understand Transgender ?

louis theroux BBC2 - has he helped you understand Transgender ? 06.04.15

BBC2 i applaud
my appreciation is a clue
this man you have to award
because gold is mr Theroux.
Louis is a pure aroma
his gift is a rule that's fundamental
watching his style never puts me in a comma
i adore the fact he is non judgmental.
from victims to the criminal
he will always try to understand
no one is invisible
he is a top reporter on this land.
one show made me surrender
because my heart was breaking
the ache from people who are transgender
nearly was to much for me to be taking.
i can see the ahead road
different is always blasted
children are mean and will make you explode
there power and acceptance will help "transgender" not be outcast ed.
thank you mr Theroux for the insight
my cards are down and i have a agenda
i hope i have raised awareness of there fight
and all readers support me and treat with respect transgender.

( last night i watched this fab show on bbc2. omg was it powerful. i was crying. i am not asking anyone to comment on my poem. if you watched the show i would love to no what did you think of it ? has your attitude changed ? can you see the pain transgender people have to go through ? or are you even more convinced these people are FREEEKS? it may be a bank hoil but i have work today on my normal shift and as this does not involve anything else i am convinced and feel safe i will not get a funny look from a GM associate so even if i do pass the dog i can smile and hold my head hi and be assured WHAM is no where near. i admit defeat on the change website as all the petitions i have got up and running has landed me with zero supporters, but i am not put off. if you want to help change how we treat transgender people feel free to help here or if you have no idea what i am on about watch this )

Yes it was good most of the parents were wonderful and very supportive.
Maybe it's easier to always be aware that your child is struggling with gender identity than them grow up unhappy and then change in adulthood?

Didn't watch it but shall give it a watch. I became more aware of transgender issues through reading up on Laverne Cox, the TV show Transparent, and Rupaul's Drag Race (some contestants have later come out as trans rather than just drag queens, and they're often treated with admiration and respect).

Obviously I won't pretend to understand the process and how it feels to be born into the wrong body but I'm glad it's getting more representation in culture and society because even the LGBT community has been pretty dismissive and ignorant of the 'T' part.

I have heard the arguments around transgender but still don't believe in it. Sorry

Always pretty much understood it, quite surprised that a fair amount of people are still making it out to be some big debatable thing.
