The transgender face problems all over the world

Introduction

Transgenders are members of the transgender community who have a gender identity different from their biological sex. Transgenders also face discrimination in many parts of the world, ranging from joblessness to being denied access to public places or being subjected to violence.

Intolerance, bigotry, and hatred

A Transgender is a person whose gender identity differs from the sex assigned to them at birth. It is not a disease, mental illness, or choice. Transgender people are often subjected to violence, harassment, and discrimination.

They have been reported as being beaten up by neighbors who do not agree with their gender identity, while other times they are harassed by police officers who suspect that they are involved in criminal activities such as prostitution or drug dealing.

In some countries like Saudi Arabia where Islam is practiced strictly, there are laws that criminalize homosexuality which means that transgender people cannot legally marry each other or form any kind of relationship together because Islamic teachings prohibit gay sexual behavior between men or women (whether homosexual or heterosexual).

Gender Dysphoria

Gender dysphoria is a condition where a person experiences discomfort or distress due to their gender identity not matching their biological sex. It's the opposite of gender incongruence, which occurs when someone has the opposite experience—that is, feeling that they are in the wrong body.

In its most severe form (formerly called "gender identity disorder"), this can lead to depression and suicide attempts. But it doesn't always have to be so serious: many people who experience gender dysphoria just want to be treated as their true selves without being harassed by those around them for doing so; others simply want hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Legality & Recognition (Marriage)

Marriage is a legal contract between two people who are committed to each other. The term can also be used to describe any other relationship that takes place in accordance with the laws of a state or country, such as civil unions, domestic partnerships, same-sex marriages, and common law unions.

Legality & Recognition (Driving License & Passport etc.)

Transgender are facing many problems in their daily lives. They are not recognized as the third gender by the law of India, Pakistan, and Thailand. In these countries, they have to undergo surgery in order to get recognized as transgender.

The process of getting a driver's license or passport or any other document can be quite difficult for transgender people because they do not want to disclose their true identities to anyone who has access to such documents (e.g., the police).

Employment & Labours Rights

The employment and labor rights of transgender people are often ignored. Transgender people face discrimination in the workplace, with many not being hired or fired, receiving less pay than their cisgender counterparts, and experiencing harassment on the job.

In addition to this, there is a lack of awareness about transgender issues among employers who may assume that all workers are heterosexual men.

Education & Access to Public Places

The transgender community faces discrimination in education and access to public places. They are often denied access to toilets, changing rooms, and sports teams because they are transgender.

In some countries, like Pakistan and India, it is legal to discriminate against them because they are considered “abnormal” or “against God's will”. Transgender people also face a high rate of physical abuse due to their gender identity; this includes harassment by police officers who harass them for being transgendered.

Violence against Transgenders

Violence against transgenders is a serious problem. It is a violation of human rights and the law, as well as the constitution of every country in which it occurs.

In many countries, including India and Israel (where I live), transgender people are denied basic civil rights because they don't fit into society's idea of gender identity.

This makes them vulnerable to violence by both state actors and private individuals who feel entitled to their bodies or property because they have been granted legal recognition as "male" or "female."

Discrimination (Boarding house)

Transgenders, who are often treated as second-class citizens by society, face discrimination in boarding houses. This problem is a serious one in many countries and can lead to social unrest or even violence.

In India, transgender people are not allowed access to public places such as restaurants or movie theaters because they feel unsafe there.

The same thing happens when they go shopping for clothes at department stores; instead of helping them find something appropriate for their gender identity (which may be different from what we're used to), clerks often refuse service if they don't fit into traditional gender roles.

Despite passing anti-discrimination laws and legalizing gender change, many transgender individuals still face discrimination.

In many countries around the world, including in Europe and North America, there are no laws that recognize the gender change of transgender individuals.

In these countries it can be difficult or impossible for a transgender person to change their name and/or gender marker on official documents such as passports or driving licenses; this makes it difficult for them to access healthcare services or even obtain employment if they live in a jurisdiction where employers are allowed to ask about an employee's genitalia during an interview process (which is not recommended).

Conclusion

The transgender community has been facing a lot of discrimination, but it's time to change the conversation and focus on solutions.

The future looks bright for the transgender community as gender recognition laws continue to get better and better every day. Unfortunately, there are still many people out there who refuse to accept these changes.

If we want equality for all genders then we need to be careful not only about how we treat trans individuals but also make sure our policies don't discriminate against any other minority groups in society too!
