Abstract: Men should not cry or should be “tough” enough. Womenshould not dress or playlike a boy. People act like a man or womanand anything against this is thought of as unmasculine or unfeminine. One’s inability to hold fast to the relative gender role is appropriately rebuffed and definitely hushed in unwavering adherence to the heteronormative codes. This paper means to investigate the transsexual voices which are stifled by the standards of heteronormative codes and those that do not fit in with this binary are consigned to the edges and skilfully destroyed. The paper additionally talks about how society is confounded between the term sexual orientation.It also enquires into the role of power that characterizes “Truth” whichcan be comprehended as an orderly strategy which produces, disperses, manages and flows.

Keywords: Gender Roles, Heteronormative Codes, Biological Sex, Transsexual Voices, Marginalization, Gender Politics.
