LOL I already said that the majority of people DONT CARE. I DONT CARE.

They are equal. No one gives a crap how they screw or with whom!!! lol

Go ahead and call me a bigot. IT will just be twice in this thread.



Don't care isn't support.

While I agree with you that the majority of society probably does not have a real problem with the trans community. However that being said I assure you that the hatred and fear is very real even if limited within a smaller community.

I think what the trans movement really needs is spokes people that are young, attractive, intelligent and articulate enough to do the community justice. As opposed to attention seeking whores like Bruce Jenner. People need to see them as just another small niche fighting for general acceptance. I think people are kind of put off when they see a 6'2 bearded woman with a really deep voice saying hey I'm normal too. reply to: violet

I would call her a victim since you're stalking her enough to know what her genitalia looks like.

What is the difference between a transgender and a homosexual? Aside from the surgery and drugs.

I'm against it because I feel that it's sad to see people destroying the bodies they were born with under the guise of "being yourself".

"Don't care" is good enough.

Because that is the end goal, right? That no one really cares one way or another? That is as supportive as should be asked of anyone. Because it is silly to think that anything more should be asked of anyone.

Live and let live = "Don't care" = the end goal for everyone.

Same difference there is between a car and a banana?

A transgender person can be straight or gay... I'm confused by your question. For example, if a transgirl digs other girls, she's a lesbian. If she digs dudes, she's straight.

They aren't doing it to make you sad. So there's no problem then. Right?

Don't care is support. It's people who 'just don't care' who help make movements happen.

In a world of hate, indifference is support.

While I am never "against" someone else exercising the freedom to do what makes them happy, it is important to point out that many transgender people suffer from a form of dysmorphic disorder.

It is a psychological problem that many hope surgery will fix. And for many it actually does bring them relief. Counselling could do the same for many as well.

Another common dysmorphic disorder: not feeling like you "belong" among humanity. Feeling like you are not quite "human". I suffer from this one to a mild degree.

I don't know where you live for it be so scary to go out because you will get abused physically and or verbally. I can assure you this is not the case of every location. I'm sure you know that. It's 2015 , most people are more accepting nowadays. Well I live near a major city so it's not a big deal here. Mind you living in s big city , most of us are scared when we go out, just as you are.


Would it be too insulting to suggest perhaps that when you go out to not attract attention? I don't go out swinging my handbag around for it to get snatched. Or flash my money around. I try not to attract the attention of muggers, who are people I fear. Well maybe your answer is No , I should be able to be who I wanna be and dress and act how I want. I frankly do not find it comfortable to wear my handbag cross body or to avoid using an ATM machine at night when I need to for my own comfort level. We all have restrictions we need to adhere to for safety reasons. Safety is first isn't it?

Yep! You are right there.

But, we are still a long way from that.


Live and let live = "Don't care" = the end goal for everyone.


You just have a way of putting things

Nobody creates hate, wars, or poverty to make me sad. But it does regardless.

It's sad that people have been brainwashed to the point that the only way they can "be themselves" is by chopping up their body and overdosing on hormone supplements. It disgusts me that the drug dealers we call doctors will support such a decision.

You too?

I swear I got dropped off on the wrong planet. Never could seem to "share" the same path with anyone.

Brainwashed. You think that societal pressures force transexuals to think that their body is the wrong sex?

Do you think that sex change operations are taken lightly? By anyone? Do you know much (anything) about what surgeons require before undertaking such operations?

It really is, none of your business what anyone does with their body.

I am confused because I have never met a transgender who was not interested in the sex they were born as. I have of course heard that this can happen; I just see no evidence of it.

Also that many 2 and 3 year olds are able to identify themselves as transgendered
