I make a big distinction between gay and transgender, A big one.
You predicted that more people would become gay because they are allowed to marry?
Or, as common sense would predict that more gay people are coming out and get married because they don't get slaughtered for being gay. I know a lot
of gay people for many years and trust me they are as gay as gay can be and they are happily married, one couple for almost 20 years. You can't act
that long for lolz. They are also quite boring, wearing cardigans and don't ponce about in silver shorts. They are just normal professionals [GP/CEO
etc] who happen to be gay.
Now as for the transgender malarkey, I am with you.
I know that there is a mental illness called body dysmorphia and it can affect any part of the body. Some very beautiful people believe 100% that
they are hideous monsters, others hack their own limbs of because they feel like alien appendages and others believe they are the opposite sex to a
degree of self mutilation.
The difference between gay and trans is simple. One doesn't harm anyone around them and life goes on [sometimes quite conservatively] with gay people
around. The other one causes the persons to do crazy things to their bodies, involving dangerous operations which often don't make these people
That is why I am fully on the gay side but have reservations about the trans-community.
I know most trans people that they really believe what they believe, but so do those that hack their own limbs off. There are even scientific
explanations for it. [If the brain is underdeveloped in the part which represents the limb, it will feel alien to the person].
It is still an illness though that leads sufferers to self mutilation. Gay people don't have that problem.
