    Default I was Born in the Wrong Skin

    The latest lunacy from the USA:

    woman comes out as trans black

    It's not just one loony either:

    My name is Godfrey. I am WrongSkin. You may not have heard of that but it means I was born to white parents and have white skin but I identify as being black. It's not a joke. It's not OK to mock us. It's not easy to live like this.
    Why not just stick a big sign above your head with Look at Me! scrawled all across it?

    Why is this considered strange? I mean nobody thought Michael Jackson was strange when he wanted to do it the other way, did they?

    MJ didn't feel he was a white man born in a black skin, he just tried, just like many other blacks in the Americas (especially South) to get a lighter skin as this is seen to be sociably better

    Is it because I isn't black?

    I'm trans *. I was born human to human parents but I identify as . It's not a joke. It's not OK to mock us. It's not easy to live like this.

    Or possibly , not quite sure. Don't oppress me!
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.
