Transgender Day of Visibility

Transgender Day of Visibility is coming up soon! It is on March 31st! It is a way to raise awareness about the transgender community and show support. Transgender people are at very high risk of suicide and self harm, lets show them the love that everybody deserves!

If you have a friend or family member who is transgender let them know you are there to support them and show them that you care.

Soul Search

January 28th, 2016

 

Today while sitting in the diversity lounge at school (The Center for Sexualities and Gender Diversity) I was reading through my homework for my death and dying class. It was quiet interesting and brought a lot of questions to my attention.

The paper I was reading was discussing after we die what happens to our soul? Socrates’ uses in his argument that the phaedo contains the first major philosophical arguments for immortality in Western thought and believed that the soul survives the death of the body.

However, some people disagree with Socrates’ and his opinions about what happens to the soul after death. Cebes argues that the soul might inhabit many bodies and survive death several times, but will eventually deplete itself and die.

Another opinion from Simmias argues that the soul is a harmony produced by the body, and that the soul will cease to exist when the body dies. This would mean that the body causes the souls existence.

After reading through all of this information it got me thinking about people and the after life. If when you die your soul still lives and inhabits another being when it is ready does that make you the same person you were before? What if a soul is gendered (male or female) and a fetus is not yet gendered. When the soul leaves the body to find a new vessel and inhabits itself in a body that is gendered differently from the soul does that create a transgender person?

I feel as though that would make sense to me. I always felt like who I was on the inside didn’t match what my body presented itself as therefore I am transgender. I always felt like a boy trapped in a girl’s body, but what if that was my soul telling me it was a male and chose the wrong vessel to live in.

I don’t know what happens after death, but these were the thoughts that were brought to my attention while reading through my homework. Maybe I am right, but I also could be very wrong. If you are interested in discussing this further you can comment here on the post.
