Important Questionaire for any Transsexual\Intersex persons

I am asking any and all people who associate as Transsexual\Intersex-ed to answer the 8 simple questions below and email your reply to me at Vforvivified@yahoo.com

I also ask that you link this to any and all websites, blogs or Forums that support Transsexual rights. The purpose of this research is to determine the climate of those who Identify as Transsexual as well as their differences of opinion from the rest of the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender community.

NOTE: THE NAMES AND EMAIL ADDRESSES OF THOSE WHO REPLY WILL ONLY BE SEEN BY ME AND WILL NOT BE RELEASED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

PLEASE PUT YOUR FIRST NAME ONLY IN THE SUBJECT LINE AND NOTE THAT YOU ARE EITHER TRANSEXUAL OR INTERSEX-ED. ALL EMAILS WITHOUT THIS INFORMATION WILL BE DELETED.

1.) Do you personally feel as a woman or man in transitioning and identifying as Transsexual, you fit under the umbrella term of “Transgender” along with cross dressers, gender benders, gender varient, transvestites, etc? Please offer details to your choice.

2.) Once you have completed transitioning, how would you view yourself:

A.) You are no longer TS. You have finished your transitioning and believe you should be treated and recognized as a regular woman or man.

B:) You are always going to be TS. No amount of transtioning will change that.

C.)You now consider yourself Gender Varient.

D.) Other, please explain.

3:) Do you want to stay involved with the general LGBT community after you are done with transitioning?

3.B)Would you stay involved if there was a Transsexual Advocacy Group. “Involvement” means of any kind, including blogging or making donations anonymously.

4.)Do you believe that Transsexualism is a medical birth defect or is it caused more from external/environmental causes or is it a choice?

5.) Do you feel people who are Transgender (cross dressers, drag queens and king. Transvestite, gender bender, gender varient, etc. should claim and be awarded the same specific rights such as access to female bathrooms, Special rights for women, etc(If leaning toward female gender association and of course the other way around  for those leaning Male gender association) as TS people do?

6.)Do you feel Transsexuals should have their own representation in the larger organized LGBT groups to ensure that people are educated about what TS is really all about and help discern from Transsexuals to Transgender? (Example, term changed to LGBTTQ(Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Questioning)

7.) Do you feel we are unintentionally held back from moving forward in our quest for equality and subjects of huge misinformation and Stereotype because the public can not tell the difference between someone who is TG and someone who is TS? If so, why?

8.) Do you feel the LGBT community honestly is working just as hard for TS rights as they are for LGB rights or do you feel many of them seem to put us off track and would(Like HRC did 2007) sell us out for their own gain like gay marriage or passing the equal rights law by restricting it to just LGB as was done in 2007?
