Judging others

Yesterday was a fun night as i was out clubbing with my cousin in London. I ended up in a very exclusive central london club where i saw this very pretty girl. I am the sort of guy that tends to appreciate everything that looks good, so i was utterly disappointed when my cousin dropped a bombshell when he told me that this supposedly pretty girl was actually a man who had a sex change. My first thought was why would anyone want to have a sex change? Surely, in terms of religion, this act is wrong in the eyes of God. Besides that, sex change is taboo in modern societies and is seen to be morally unacceptable by many.

This would later provoke me to ask the question; " Who are we to judge others"? As humans, we always tend to criticize others regarding their looks, beliefs and behaviour amongst others. I believe, that as individuals, we are allowed to be who we want to be provided our actions don't negatively affect others. By having a sex change, that guy/girl (whatever the label should be) did what would make him feel better. As a kid, he probably never liked the body that he was born into and decided that he would be better suited to a female body.

Well. i guess the point i am trying to make here is: don't judge others until you have seen the whole picture. You and I have probably done something in the past that others didnt approve of. No amount of persuassion would have convinced us to do otherwise. Our actions, as with the sex change has probably made us a better person today.
