Why alien attitude towards eunuchs?

Sadaf Shah Afridi.

The extremely neglected third gender, unfortunately considered with very little or no respect in society. They are harassed in every field of life. The main cause is that people do not even believe that there can be a person with third gender.

Society shows alien attitude towards them which discourage them to do something in their lives. It is all our fault, because the attitude of our society towards eunuchs is worse to the extent of discouraging them to live a respectful life.

                                                 Are eunuchs not human beings?

Are people of third gender not a part of our society? 

We lack proper laws to secure their rights. Unfortunately, our government is failed to provide legal rights to this community because of which their problems are arising each day. Employment is a top most serious issue for them. There is serious discrimination of their right to work normally along with male and female members of the society. Abuse of their employment right forces them to indulge in prostitution.

Surely, they can live a respectful life if we bring change in our social behavior towards them and give them equal opportunities in every field of life.

Thank you
