This message is for all those reading this petition to help transgenders gain recognition.
There are many people who are born as transgenders and not choose to be one. Our society does not recognize them as a third gender as a result of which they are far away from basic amenities that they should be receiving as an individual.
It's not their fault that they are born as transgenders. It's a shame on our part that we fail to give them that respect. We have a word 'he' for man and 'she' for a woman but do we have any recognition for a transgender?
Ask a mother who has given birth to a transgender and the pain she had to undergo after losing her child by it giving away to the 'Hijra' community. That mother has taken the same pain as she has taken to deliver a baby boy or a baby girl. What if one of us reading this message delivers the same kind of baby in future? Would you want to lose your child by giving it away or rather be a part of this campaign to help the society recognize the transgenders as a third gender.
Experts from literary background do suggest a word that can be used for them just like the words that we have for men and women (he, she, him, her, his, hers). I suggest the word 'ce' (just like he or she) but I am open to any word as long as these people gain recognition.
We are in the 21st Century, if not today then it can be never. Please help me spread this awareness.
