It’s Time To Accept TRANSAmerica

First off, I would like to state that I am a heterosexual male. I LOVE women, even though it seems like a one-way street with them and me at times. I may not be Don Juan DeMarco, but I do okay.

Transphobia is a type of phobia that refers to the discrimination against transexualism and/or transsexual people based on the expression of their internal gender identity. Because transphobia is based on the individual’s expression of their internal gender identity this is a form of gender bias discrimination and NOT sexual orientation discrimination. Unlike drag queens and transvestites, people often incorrectly associate their gender identity with homosexuality.


When I was younger, I would look at these people as freaks of natures and I, like most people would often ridicule and belittle them. Shows like Jerry Springer did not help to bridge the social gap; I like many people would look on at transsexuals like leapers. I wanted to get as far away from thme as possible and I would laugh uncontrollably whenever I saw one.

Now that I am older, I still do not understand it fully, but I have met some transgender people and I can say in confidence that I am much more tolerable of all people in general. There are so many things for me to be worried about in my own life to be bothered with stressing out about someone else’s.

I’m not saying we all gotta hold hands and sing like that old Coca-Cola commercial, but tolerance and acceptance works both ways, if you want people to show you some, then you have to give some.

The world is full of all types of people; we all bleed the same red blood and breathe the same air.

Adrian "A.D." Dubard

Born in Washington DC, Adrian was placed in the care of his maternal grandparents after his mother died when he was a baby. For the most part of his life, Adrian’s biological father was absent from his life. Growing up with a house full of cousins, aunts and uncles, Adrian began his love of writing to document his surroundings. Attending a private school for 9 ½ years, it was there that many influential teachers help strengthen his love of writing via English and creative writing classes. Even though, Adrian loved to write he was reserved about what he wrote about. Leaving DC at the age of 7, Adrian and his family moved to Temple Hills, Maryland in Prince George’s not too far from where he had lived previously. Luckily, Adrian had taken part in many youth outreach programs as a youth that allowed him to travel and see the country, many kids he knew around his own age hadn’t even left the city. These experiences opened his eyes to other cultures and ways of living. As a teenager, Adrian had many friends who passed away before their time but he promised to keep writing to honor their memory. Other than writing, Adrian has helped various charities rise by going on public speaking tours. Some of these charities include The Safe Haven Project and The Journey of Hope. He has contributed to several book projects and currently resides in Queens, NY. Read more articles by Adrian.
