Confession of a Tranny

Posted by | June 05, 2014 | by Eva Lin | 5 Comments

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the word “Tranny.” In my opinion this word was never used to really degrade trans people. Although I have heard from many that it is quite offensive, it personally does not offend me. I have only heard the word used within my own community, more so amongst the “gays.”

I haven’t always been numb to the word “tranny” though, it all started when I came into the adult entertainment industry. At first, I cringed at the fact I was even categorized under the word “shemale” or “tranny” but then I realized after a couple years being in the adult industry that these terms are just words. Words used to sexually demean trans women. Let’s face it, She-male or tranny equals “chick with a dick.”

So I totally understand why transgender individuals and activists would be offended by the word. To me the most offensive word you can call me is a “man.” Letting me know that I am not valid. Disrespecting my existence and my identity. Calling a trans woman a man is an act of violence in my opinion. Because it attacks that woman’s identity and effort to be who she wants to be.

So there are people who chose to chose to empower themselves with the word “tranny” and there are those who simply want to obliterate the word form being used. I have accepted the word and use it at least once a day among my friends. So boo-hoo and big deal! I am a tranny!IMG_5861_Fotor

    Eva your a beautiful girl with a good heart and people should be more open minded. For me it comes down to a person having a good heart. No one should judge someone on what orientation they are or what they identify with. Life is what you make it and being happy is always the #1 goal.

    What you are in my eyes is the Most Beautiful Woman I have ever seen. All the rest is pretentious Babble to me. At my age I don’t really care what others think, nor do I have to explain myself.
