It isn't Transphobia it's Ignorance

It isn't Transphobia it's Ignorance

Transphobia (or less commonly transprejudicetrans-misogyny, referring to transphobia directed toward trans women and trans-misandry, referring to transphobia directed toward trans men) is a range of negative attitudes and feelings towards transsexualism and transsexual ortransgender people, based on the expression of their internal gender identity (see Phobia – terms indicating prejudice or class discrimination).
The related term cissexism, which is sometimes used as a synonym of transphobia, refers to the assumptions that all men and all women are biological male or female and that trans people are inferior to cis people. Whether intentional or not, both transphobia and cissexism have severe consequences for the target of the negative attitude. Many trans people also experience homophobia from people who associate their gender identity with homosexuality. Attacking someone on the basis of a perception of their gender identity rather the perception of their sexual orientation is known as "trans bashing", as opposed to "gay bashing".

Above is the wikipedia description of Transphobia. However there is a much better word that should be used and that word is described below.

Ignorance is a state of being uninformed (lack of knowledge).[1] The word ignorant is an adjective describing a person in the state of being unaware and is often used as an insult to describe individuals who deliberately ignore or disregard important information or facts. Ignoramus is commonly used in the US, the UK, and Ireland as a term for someone who is willfully ignorant.

Greetings everyone and guess who's back at Naughty Nights Press, continuing my crusade to get transsexuals the same equality, respect and rights as everyone else. Yes I've used an outside source (wikipedia) to get my point across but I think you can see how that although they are two very different words, Transphobic and Ignorance, they both lead to the same conclusion.

phobia (from the GreekφόβοςPhóbos, meaning "fear" or "morbid fear") is, when used in the context of clinical psychology, a type of anxiety disorder, usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer commits to great lengths in avoiding, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed, often being recognized as irrational.

As you can see a phobia is a fear and why the hell would you be afraid of Transsexuals? Transsexuals are not aliens, from another planet, sent to destroy us and they are not trying to make us all become transsexual they are people, just like you and I and deserve to be treated as equals just like you and I.
