MEL’S CUSTOMISED CANDLES

VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, 3029.
This blog has been inspired by recent uneducated posts and comments.
As a Transgender person, I’m hoping to dispel some of those myths.
I knew at age 4 I was a gurl, however, unable to act on these feelings, as 1970, Australia was very traditional.
I was forced to act like a male.
How I reached 18, I’m mystified.
Many people feel when we transition, we will still be the same person on the inside, this is partly correct, as we transition, so our external body, matches our internal body.
Not every Transgender wants surgery, but does not make them any less of a Worthy Human Being.
Another thing, people have a big negativity towards us using the bathrooms of our preferred gender.
To date, I have never heard of an genuine Transgender doing anything illegal in the bathroom of their preferred gender.
We only want to be able to do our business, wash our hands etc, then leave.
In the 1980’s I was a Parcel Delivery Driver in Sydney CBD.
I needed to use the male bathroom of a very well-known and popular office/retail block. I was still a male then.
As I entered saw another male using the urinal, however, within seconds he started making noises to gain my attention, then when he did, he showed me his erection.
I finished quickly and left without washing my hands.
When I got to my van, I was shaking and crying, however, stayed strong as my father would constantly tell me males do not show their emotions.
I had water in the van and gave my hands a quick wash before I continued making my deliveries. I never told anybody about this, because I was ashamed.
Since transitioning to female, I have never seen or heard anyone trying to put the hard word on any other female.
Gender Identity & Sexual Orientation are 2 very separate things.
Just because someone transitions from Male to Female, or Female to Male, does not mean they will date those of their assigned birth gender.
In the 1990’s before I 1st went on hormones; I was a Bus Driver & had passengers misgendering me.
Below is a secret, I have kept hidden for many years:
In 1981, when I was viciously assaulted & left to die, I wanted to die because at least it would have saved everyone the misery have me around. Honestly, even today many times I have felt this way.
Just because someone is Transgender or a member of the LGBTIQA+ Community, does not mean we are criminals.
Honestly, if employers gave everyone more of a chance, maybe people would not seek inventive ways to survive.
Every single Human Winner deserves to feel like a Worthy Tax Paying, Honest Citizen.
I ask everyone reading this:
Unless someone is committing criminal offences, with concrete evidence, please do not assume anything.
I’m supposed to accept people at face value, yet others rarely do for me.
