White trans person identifies as Filipino, say they are "transracial"

White trans person identifies as Filipino, say they are

Ja Du, who drives a Filipino Tuk Tuk for everyday use, told WTSP that he grew up feeling like he had a special connection to Filipino culture, but at the time of the interview the Florida man had not told yet his family about his identity, because he anxious they would not understand, especially after Dolezal faced ridicule.

Ja Du, born a white male named Adam, now considers himself a Filipino.

The resident of Tampa, Florida, drives a Tuk Tuk - a vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines and other parts of Asia.

'Whenever I'm around the music, around the food, I feel like I'm in my own skin, ' he said to WTSP. Ja Du grew up around Filipino food and felt "intrigued" by the country all his life, often watching the History Channel for hours just to learn about Filipino culture.

Despite individuals such as Dolezal and Ja Du saying they feel more inclusive to an ethnic race than they were actually born into, many who might give a pass to transgender folk identifying as the gender other they were born with, continue to challenge the ability of one's ability to usurp their identity simply on ethnicity.

When the Daily Dot reached out to Ja Du about how he identifies (with he/him pronouns for starters), he told us: "Transsexuality and transracialism aren't the most important things in a sense of who I am".

"I think that if that's who they really feel inside, life is about finding out who you are", she told the station. "The more knowledge you have of yourself, the happier you can be". "All they want to do is throw themselves into that culture and celebrate it", Dr. Schneckner told WTSP.

Ja Du isn't the first to come out publicly as transracial. If you look on Facebook, where we found Ja Du, groups dubbed transracial are popping up with dozens of members. It is unclear whether Ja Du knows any Filipinos or is aware that Filipino is not a race or ethnicity but a nationality.

But, with someone making such drastic changes, she does think they should speak to a professional.

"Ja Du says he has yet to come out to his family as Filipino, because he's anxious they'll laugh at him".

"I think that we all have the freedoms to pursue happiness in our own ways", he added.
