    More from praenomenal

    I am not your joke.

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     'I felt I should make a challenging message, say things people never hear from people they never see,' said praenomenal. She said she feels transindividuals are 'absolutely' misunderstood.
    - katie, CNN iReport producer

    I am not your joke, I am not funny, I am a human being. I am alive. I have a soul and a family. I have love in my heart.

     

    Calling me sir because you guessed I am different by my voice, when looking right at me?

     

    Laughing because you hear my cough?


    Pointing because I am tall and have broad shoulders?

     

    I don't deserve that.

    No one deserves that.

     

    I am a woman, I dare you to question that.
