On Transgender Kids

"When you work with these kids, you see that they're not making a decision. They have always known. The sense of who one is - boy or girl - is a crucial existential aspect of humanity. It is powerful and inborn. The absence or presence of a penis is incidental. The most important sex organ is the brain."

Frustration

Dave Moffatt, age 14
Lyrics from the hidden 13th track from The Moffatts' 1999 CD "Chapter One - New Beginnings"


There's no windows in this place
for me to show my weary face.
Rage I hold within my soul
at times I cannot control.

What's the point of me being here
when being me is what I fear.
Every day it's all the same
trapped again in my own pain.

I cry myself to sleep
so many secrets I must keep.
No one to reach me...nobody cares.
Trapped in the middle of a distant stare.

I've prayed that I was free
of this grief that's filling me.
Everywhere I turn
every bridge must burn.

There's no windows in this place
for me to show my weary face.

(A few years after the CD was released, Dave came out as gay to his parents and was rejected by his father. They didn't speak for several years. Now in his late 20's, Dave is active in the Toronto, Canada gay community and is continuing to pursue a musical career. He and his father are speaking again.)
