Transgender former US Marine shares inspirational story to encourage others to accept themselves
The Telegraph reports the story about transgender woman Sona Avedian, and her journey towards self-acceptance. Like many male to female transgender, she repressed her longings to be female, and even overcompensated in the masculine direction. She became a US marine and fought in Iraq. “I could only hide so much,” she said. “I was exhausted and I could no longer hide behind these deployments”. She said she prepared to “come out” by exercising and changing her diet, and eventually beginning to take hormones and altering her hair. She hoped to inspire others with her story. “It’s about being you,” she said, “no matter what society thinks!” You can follow Sona on twitter and facebook. She is not the first trans woman who has tried to join the military in order to kill off her feeling of being a woman. Kristin Beck fought with the Navy Seals. Now she is running for the American Congress. Caitlyn Jenner tried to signal masculinity by becoming an athlete, and Ernest Hemingway (who did not transition, but who was definitely transgender) became the ultimate macho man. There does, in fact, seem to be a pattern here, on an aggregated level: Up till now trans women who are bisexual or attracted to women have been less likely to come out at a younger age. One reason for this might be the fact they love women, and that they on some level fear that transitioning will ruin their chances of finding love. Others have argued that “late onset” transitioners are more likely to be “people pleasers” by personality, and that this is the reason they do not accept their identity at an earlier age. I suspect there are many factors at play here. This intense repression of transgender identities does in any case reflect transphobic attitudes in the communities around them, including an active repression of any kind of femininity in those assigned male at birth.
