      Great Stuff Keep it coming! Narrow minded Sri Lanka needs to get with the act and realize that identities are plural and diverse and MIXED – inter-caste, inter-class, inter-religion marriage and , trans gender identities is the way to go!

      Today the third gender is recognized in the civilized world. Uncivilized Sri Lankans like Goraka have a very long way to go to get civilized.

    I’m not sure of all these things…..I mean….when one is unsure, one then must trace back to the primal reasons men and women dress the way they do : And it’s to attract the opposite in each other so they can produce offspring! In the case of Trans, they are copying women 100%….that’s not fair. If they can’t help it, they should produce their own style and not encroach on other people’s dress style and creep out others. I mean…if for thousand’s of years it has been creepy, then it IS creepy!

      Therese,….that’s not fair.”If they can’t help it, they should produce their own style and not encroach on other people’s dress style and creep out others. I mean…if for thousand’s of years it has been creepy, then it IS creepy!” Wrong again Therese,have you heard of enuuchs that guarded the King’s harem?

    Really??? ——— Let me begin with Ramona: “…other people’s dress style”? So people can “own” rights to styles of dressing? REALLY? You are pathetically ill-informed. Gender expression goes any whichever way and by all means it must! One has no right to control and discriminate being being averted by another’s way of life. You are appalled? Look away! You are not invited to look. Ah now about Goraka’s apathy: First off, you may have referred to your own status of mind as “Sick”. In that case, simply forgo the rest of this writing. If what you meant was that the TG’s are sick, then there is bit of a problem here. Your sickness arises from within you as the result when reality clashes with your own ignorance, lack of self awareness and a bloated ego who thinks you’ve got it all. The recourse is reading, contemplation, and some degree of self understanding. And for the record, HECK YES!!! I want my children to be who they are devoid of the fear of half baked, opinionated self-appointed experts like yourself.

    Good news indeed- they have been oppressed for way too long. I also second Panikkiya here – Live and let live people !! I am a 100% heterosexual male and happily married for 27 years. I cannot judge and do want to not judge the LGBT community- I wish them well in fact!. We live in a diverse world not in dark ages dictated by male -centric value systems. Goraka and Ramona please open your hearts and start loving your fellow human beings.
