As usual, when I’ve nothing to do @ the office, I watch You Tube, mostly talk show, like Hitam Putih which aired on Trans7 or Sarah Sechan which aired on Net.
Today, I watch a very inspiring show on Hitam Putih about transgender named Solena Chaniago, that aired on Oct. 14th’ 14.
Why I said it was inspriring, because she face her life that hard to face for mostly people with wise attitude.
Last few years some transgender from Indonesia come out to public with their status. Start with Sam Brodie (who change from man to woman & back to man again), Dena Rachman & last but not least is Solena Chaniago.
And always, their come out is have a big impact in Indonesia. I saw on You Tube, so many comment that say how they fell out into sin, the stigma that stick to them as a bigger sinner. And in Indonesia, religion is very a big issue.
But when Deddy Corbuzier asked her about her reaction to people who damned her, she answer it wisely, “That being a transgender is not her choice, it’s her destiny.”
As Pope Francis said “When I meet a gay person, I have to distinguish between their being gay and being part of a lobby. If they accept the Lord and have goodwill, who am I to judge them? They shouldn’t be marginalized. The tendency [to homosexuality] is not the problem…they’re our brothers.”
Below is the video that I’ve talked about.
