BEING TRANSGENDER

Norms are a fundamental concept in the social sciences. They are most commonly defined as rules or expectations that are socially enforced. Norms may be prescriptive (encouraging positive behavior; for example, “be honest”) or proscriptive (discouraging negative behavior; for example, “do not cheat. Lately, these norms have become statutory and toxic accounting to the reasons why tran persons are suicidal, depressed, traumatized and exposed to all manner of violence.

Norms which violates the rights of the LGBTQI+ persons excluding fairness, equity and justice for all humanities should be dismantled. We are all valid as humans.
