"A trans woman (sometimes trans-woman or transwoman) is a transgender person who was assigned male at birth but whose gender identity is that of a woman. The label of transgender woman is not always interchangeable with that of transsexual woman, although the two labels are often used in this way. Transgender is an umbrella term that includes different types of gender variant people (including transsexual people)." from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans_woman

The life of a trans woman creates a diva. Or does it? And just what is a "diva"? Let's look at some examples:

According to Wikipedia, "Diva can also refer to a woman with a reputation for being temperamental or difficult to please. In show business, having a 'diva attitude' implies someone who is self-important or hard to work with."

According to UrbanDictionary.com, "A diva is a female performer, usually an opera singer, who is extremely talented but very imperious and tempermental. But the distinguishing factor is that her talent permits somewhat uncouth behavior. A diva is not necessarily difficult to work with, she is just very professional and and has a low tolerance for incompetence. A diva is NOT just some no-talent pop singer who thinks everyone should acquiesce to her every whim, or even worse, some woman who is necessarily rude, mean, bitchy, and often stupid just because she "knows what she wants" and revels in being high maintenance. These woman do not deserve the title of diva, because they have no redeeming talent or quality. They are simply loud and obnoxious bitches. True divas should be treated with respect for their enormous talent and strong will." 

Which one are you?
