Yesterday I saw a documentary about a woman who had been born a man and when she was 38 years old, she changed gender. That's when Christoff became Chrisst'll. I wasn't planning on watching the documentary, but I ended up doing it anyway.
I have always admired people like Chrisst'll who want to change gender, but after seeing the documentary I understood her even better. She just felt as if she was born in the wrong body. You hear that a lot, but even in that small documentary I saw that she was right. It showed a few other people too who changed gender and they were all so happy and satisfied. It was heartwarming to see how something like that can change people's lives. The only thing holding them back was, of course, other people. People who don't want to understand it, parents who don't speak to their children,...
We all know Kendall Jenner because of her Marc Jacobs T-shirt supporting Designers Against AIDS; her dad Bruce Jenner is going through gender alignment right now. He was an athlete in his early years, has 6 children by 3 different spouses and at 60 years old he finally decided to change his gender and come out about it. He knew already when he was 5 years old that he was living in the wrong body and kept silent about this to the outside world for 55 years- how sad is that?
In my opinion, people have to be able to choose for themselves who they are in life. Why would you ruin your own shot at happiness to make other people happy? Chrisst'll has 3 children and they love her for who she is. They don't call Chrisst'll mom or dad, but Maddy. In the documentary they say that they thought it was strange in the beginning, but after a little while they got used to it.
They can live with it, so why can't strangers do the same?
