A-is for accomplished, in all that you do.

V-is for valor, your strength.

I-is for intense, your zest of living.

T-is for tried, tried and true you.

E-is for expressive, not one to hold within.

R-is for rock star, let it out!

Let's teach our students how to use google  ;)

English / Re: One is not born, but rather becomes, woman.

I liked Mahiuddin Ahmed's comment most; may be from a different light. Beauvoir's theory might be justified but this is one-sided argument, favoring one particular gender. The fact is, not only woman, each human being is product of the culture they belong to! Everyone is born as human, later get labelled with a gender as it easier to generalize them with that label than addressing myriads of complicated issues. If you bring the argument of patriarchy and domination; the female race in that paradigm potentially dominates  the transgender communities and the transgenders suffer as they are deprived of the physical entities of the female body and the privileges that comes along with it.
