CNN iReport: “I am transgender, and I want my voice to be heard.”
Avery was one of several people who participated in an iReport assignment that asked transgender, transsexual and questioning people to create a message they wanted others to know.
The task was simple: Make a sign with your message, and take a photo of yourself holding it. The responses were powerful and surprisingly candid.
Avery’s message simply said, “I am talented, creative, and beautiful, and I refuse to be tyrannized by a letter.”
She was referring to the letters “M” and “F” commonly used on forms to denote gender. Avery says that a choice like “male” or “female” that usually seems like a no-brainer is fraught with consequences for transgender people.
“That M or F on a document” too often is used to discriminate against us.
Legally, because Avery has not had gender reassignment surgery, she is still referenced as male on some documents and female on others.
