Trans ethnic is a term used to describe people who may act, feel, think, or look different from the race/ethnicity that they were born with.

Mostly white people who feel that they were born the wrong race. They usually feel they were supposed to be black or Asian or Indian.

There are other types too. Transabled are able-bodied people who have a burning desire to be disabled. Otherkin are people who see themselves as partially or entirely non-human, contending that they are, in spirit if not in body, not human.

I'm sorry but I feel these people need psychologists. I totally understand transgender because sexuality should NOT be based on what society says.

But really? You feel BLACK? How does black feel? LOL. I think these are dumb ass white kids who are fascinated with the culture. Because I can guarantee if these people woke up black, they would shit on themselves.

I think its bullshit, lol. Transgendered is one thing, but trans-ethnic, trans-racial? There is no typical traits that certain ethnicities have that others dont.

What happened? Did the john deere break down again?? I bet if black people woke up as you, they'd kill all the white people. I can't say as I would blame them. Trans-ethnic? How long did it take you to think that one up?? Just another racists buttwipe with nothing to do but start drama.

I've heard and seen this topic on Tumblr.com
These issues are so fascinating to me and hard for me to form an opinion on because how do you "feel" a gender or a race when you've only been one or the other? It's more like desiring a separate social identity, which is why transgenderism is controversial among feminists. If being a woman doesn't mean anything about your behavior and abilities, how can you "be one inside"? They believe there's nothing intrinsically feminine. I believe gender is more of a spectrum than we acknowledge, hence people with ambiguous organs/chromosomes etc., and I do believe there are general differences in the mindset of men of women, so I can see identifying with one over the other. But the idea of "being" something different seems implausible to me - it's more like you identify with the social role and "look" of that different race/gender etc. I'm looking at this purely practically, but I imagine if you're into spirituality it would make more sense.

For otherkin, how can you know what non-human feels like? And the people who want be disabled are the most fascinating of all to me - feeling like you should not have a limb, etc. Such a strange phenomenon - I don't know if it's neurological or psychological, but clearly you are not "meant to be disabled inside." But I do believe that's a very real impulse for them and feel bad.

I think it's retarded and a mockery of people of color. You feel you should have been born Japanese because you like Gyaru style? You think you should have been born black because you prefer rap over rock?

Do all Japanese people dress up? No. Do all blacks only listen to rap music? No. Their opinions are only based on stereotypes that are presented in various media outlets. Teach those individuals something other than music, clothes and food and see how they feel.

this will be called delusion/self hate while having a penis and dressing in drag is called gender identity disorder.

Strange world we live in...

Lol. I first heard of this shit on tumblr and watched it get (rightfully) dragged. All it is, is a bunch of bored white kids looking for attention by claiming that they are an ethnic person born in the body of a white person. Not surprisingly, their reasons for claiming their "true" ethnicity are based on stereotypes (i.e. the one person who claimed they were trans-Korean because of their love of K-pop and another white male who claimed that his true identity was that of a "ghetto" black woman and he had even picked out a "ghetto" name). It's basically the same old tale of white people co-opting shit, except this time they're going for actual identities.

This is no different than "passing". There were White people who passed as Black back in the day as well as black people passing for white.

Stop with the stereotypes. I listen to Country, Rap, Reggaeton, Latino, etc music. I may sound black, but I am white and was born in the south and for all you have never been out of Vanderburgh County, all people talk the same down south. You cannot tell the difference if u call Atlanta. I am sure there are people who feel they were born in the wrong generation, race, creed, sexual orientation, etc. I find this all hilarious as Jeff Foxworthy is one of the highest paid comedians and he talks country, which to most whites is black when they are not buying a ticket to his show. lol

"Furthermore, people state that i haven’t faced the same scenarios that are stereotyped amongst “black women”, but they are just that, stereotypes. oppression and experiences aren’t universal within any labeled group, for members face exceptional variance in their experiences. by stating i haven’t faced the same oppression as a “black woman” alludes to a universal shared experience, however; the experiences of someone identified as a “black woman” in urban toronto, rural virginia, and zimbabwe all differ tremendously. as with all people, i face oppression which may be consistent with some members of my identified group (you are under no authority to determine this), as well as some that aren’t shared by a large quantity of members, coherent though, with any member of any group.
