Another Example of Responding to Society’s Pushing Gender Conformity

This is a great example of a person accepting herself as she is, not as people tell her she is supposed to be because she was assigned female gender at birth. She explains what it means to be a Sikh and refers to their concept of god as genderless and some other interesting gender equality concepts as well as great self acceptance of her own looks that do not conform to society’s view of females being “hairless”, which of course, is fiction as females have hair in a lot of places on their bodies but some get rid of it to conform to what is considered “acceptable” for “females”. Everyone can learn a lot from this girl. The only issue I had with what she said is, what do Sikhs do about people who do not recognize themselves as what they are assigned at birth, ie. transgendered and other gender noncomforming people who want to change their bodies in some way to affirm who they really are…
