Dear Jake Zyrus,
We support you as a transgender man, but do you really have to ANNOUNCE your “tiis-pogi” procedures!?
A lot of trans people won’t reveal it until they have fulfilled their purpose
I said on my Facebook:
My friends knows a transman who never underwent that kind of procedure, and guess what? He is called, “Kuya,” despite his feminine voice.
Same goes with Aiza Seguerra, who calls himself a transman, but never underwent male hormone intakes, and would prefer wearing a binder or a minimizer bra.
Also, my friend knows a transwoman who is still considered as “gay,” but cross-dresses and seems more feminine and could be better-looking than a woman.
Lastly, we know someone who is a transwoman who still speaks like a gay person (hak hak!), but chose not to undergo sex change surgery (well DUH! Maintenance kaya ang sex change). Swerte niya, nagpa-sex change siya legally (it’s two things: Surgical sex change, OR legal sex change).
Ultimong si BB Gandanghari, hindi niya in-anunsyo na magiging transwoman na pala siya! She only announced it when she said, “Rustom Padilla is dead.” Well, she’s the only transwoman who still looks gay than trans.
Mismong si Angelina Mead King, she didn’t even have to undergo sex re-assignment surgery, attesting that she still retains her guy side. That way, she gave her wife Joey Mead King reasons to retain the marriage.
Also, the most popular ones like Rep. Geraldine Roman and Sass Rogando Sasot didn’t even reveal their procedures, unless they’re being asked about it. It was only Ka Geraldine who opened up her journey towards transitioning.
She was like saying, “I think, God won’t approve of discrimination against the LGBT.”
Difference between transgender vs. transsexual
Remember, Marlene Aguilar said, “The brain is the BIGGEST sex organ.”
I would consider the likes of Angelina Mead King as transgender, but the likes of Geraldine Roman would be called, transsexual.
So, I would call Aiza Seguerra as transgender, not transsexual.
Well, in this case, I consider Jake Zyrus as transgender. Kulang na lang, magpa-sex reassignment surgery siya, transsexual na ang itatawag ko sa kanya. That’s because Geraldine Roman is a true-blooded transsexual—she admitted, she went to the States to undergo sex re-assignment surgery.
And to dear Jake Z: Never reveal your procedures immediately
At least, BB Gandanghari didn’t reveal her surgeries, or yeah, procedures—she only lets people know that she is no longer RUSTOM PADILLA. She only made it official when she officially made it legal in the States (well, I’m not sure if she is a dual citizen of the Philippines and the USA).
Even though BB still looks like a tranny (lol yes, she still looks a cross-dressing gay), at least she just practiced self-love, and self-honesty. Remember, it’s always good to be honest, but not all truths are good to tell (for example: Bashing celebrities’ offsprings *ahem*).
Now answer me, my dear Jake Z: How come BB Gandanghari is still well-loved by the Filipino people, despite that she does not look like a transwoman? How come people respected her decision to become BB Gandanghari?
Also, how come Filipinos also accepted Caitlyn Jenner as Caitlyn?
Jake Z, it’s never wrong to be honest about your transitioning, but to reveal your procedures is something that might irritate the audiences. Granted, we may never please everybody, yet don’t announce what you’re going through. You might be the next Kim Kardashian, if ever.
