Ask Me Anything About the Trans Community - Irae Nicole

It is time for another exciting Ask Me Anything! This post is for anyone who has any questions about trans people and the transgender community! Do you wonder what exactly transitioning entails? Are you curious if we are actually magical creatures? Here is your chance to ask!

A quick about me and my credentials. I am a trans woman which gives me a bit of insight into the whole being trans thing. I transitioned around my 20th birthday about 8 years ago now come July. I like being involved with LGBT stuff, especially the trans portion. I ran a trans organization in college and have done Trans 101 panels as part of training for various organizations and companies.

Ask me personal questions about my transition (if it is to personal I will say so) or general questions about the community or how the whole being trans thing works.

Of course being tied into peoples identities there are always differing views within the trans community and when I am not talking about pure facts I will try to mention those. I know when I have talked about trans stuff on O-Deck before people can get defensive or apologetic but most likely I am not being accusatory to you specifically when I talk about transphobia, transmisogyny, or bigotry in general. If I am actually upset at you I will use an angry gif or something. I may correct your wording but just take it as part of the education.

I am going to leave this open to asks as long as people have questions so if you have a way to find this thread a month later and a question pops into your head, feel free to comment. I will probably reply next time I am on kinja, which is regularly.
