As a kid, transgender icon Janet Mock felt like her gender identity was policed by those around her. In a recent video for the “It Got Better” project, Mock explained what it was like to grow up as a gender-nonconforming child in Honolulu, Hawaii and Oakland, California, and discussed the obstacles she faced as she began to live authentically as a young trans girl.

Watch the video for some heartfelt advice for young trans people.

  1. Typing as I’m listening. I see her story as a big lie. No, she isn’t lying about her life or what happened in her life. The lie is that she isn’t what is normally happening out there. She is the exception, the anomaly. Far to many trans and gays are living a hellish life created by bigoted hypocritical god loving bastards. So, no, it isn’t getting better.

  2. Hum, I may have killed the comment I want to post. LOL So, if it’s a double post just delete it.

    I am listening to her as I’m typing. She’s lying. No, not about herself or what happened in her life. She is an anomaly, an exception. not what is normally happening out there in the real world.

    The huge majority of trans and gays, a lot of them kids, are going through a living hell, a hell created by bigoted, hypocritical god loving bastards, and some of then are closet cases. Things really aren’t getting better. At least that is my own perception.

    “She’s lying. No, not about herself or what happened in her life. She is an anomaly, an exception. not what is normally happening out there in the real world.”

    A bit harsh, maybe? Maybe she’s only referring to her situation or life? So, for her, it got better. At least she feels it got better.

    But, you’re correct in stating, “The huge majority of trans and gays, a lot of them kids, are going through a living hell, a hell created by bigoted, hypocritical god loving bastards, and some of then are closet cases.

    1. Harsh? Harsh is seeing others going through hell. Ok, a bit harsh but so what? As long as she says that it’s getting better but in the same breath she also says that “for her” I can live with that. Point is I don’t believe in giving false hopes. Maybe I’m cold but so be it. Still, I happy for her. I just feel we must be not only hopeful but also realists.

  4. Janet Mock says the difference is her putting on a dress at six years old. DUH !!! She says she is gender non-conforming. What is a gender but something me, you, and anyone learns ??? Every gay and homosexual, male or female, is a ‘non-conforming’ social being. Otherwise the name, or label, would not exist. Neither would male nor female. We figure out the body parts as we go along. Just as we pee and shit — we figure out the body and make do, or not, depending.

    Bu! … Janet Mock, as the name insists, as she insists, says she is a female born as a male with male body parts. Males have parts but are not grave diggers by birth. We learn, or, we figure it out. We all learn, and so do you, Janet, and we all figure something out and maybe mess up. But we all invent some way to do it. The body parts are real. Learning is part of our social figuring, good, bad, otherwise. Sex is social. We do not get born knowing anything. We figure things out as we go or just react, just as we breathe, automatic, and we live and, then, maybe, we learn, using our body parts as we go, including our brains, and we figure or invent ways to do it all, including pee and shit and cumm and cry and get mean and fall in love and on and on and on.

    Drag queens are NOT females, my male-female Janet Mock !!!!. Queens … Gay Queens … play a game to survive, entertain, and, or, or, enjoy. They fuck with their dick as well as any tuff off the sidewalk. They intend to get off somehow or other, just as do any of the tuffs, roughs, or regulars, as they call them, and as I learn to call them, I meet the queens and they tell me so. Thusly I know them. They have dicks and dicks are there to get a rub and we both know that and that is what we end up talking about. Plus the mouth rub/suck, the ass this and that, the hole, and the simple rub a dub cuddle cum, etcetera. They are not females. They want sex too. And they are males who play the gay fem sex style but it is really male sex, of obvious physical necessity. It is the same game as with females using their body parts their various ways. Gay Queens can do it with their body parts and still be queens, even military style, but with a male queen twist. I only know MY experiences on the street with male whores, male prostitutes, male sex workers, male sweets, male punks, and gay queens, in and out of gay bars. ===> Who you be kidding ???

    Trans play another game. Trans deny the anatomy facts. And that is another matter. Trans deny their physicality and their reality. Sorry. I do not buy into the trans phantasy. FRAUD.
