The LGBT "community" loves to use the word "homophobia.' Perhaps that makes them feel better, but no one I know "fears" any person engaged in
that behavior. They just think it's weird is all, with the transgender part of the equation being the weirdest of all. Don't mistake dislike for
fear. Most straights don't fear gays as much as dislike them because they can be so pretentious. It's not a sexual choice; it's a religion. Having
said that, I know many gay couples who blend right in and you'd never know. It's just that the loud mouths feed the seterotype.
You have male DNA. You have an X and y chromosome. There's nothing you can do to change that. You can pretend you're female if you want, but it is
essentially an indulgence that is now allowed by an indulgent society. Nowadays you can take hormones and cross-dress in ways you could not in the
past. Although you've said you won't go so far as to "change" your body parts, you have to ask how realistic that is. If you did chop off your
parts, do you really think the results would be equivalent to the natural female? Really???? Who are you kidding here? It's more like a knothole. You
can pretend to have breasts if you want; they're actually man boobs. Hook up with Jerry's father. He'll fix you right up.
Going the opposite way, does anyone really think that because Chastity Bono took a few hormones to grow a beard and grow overweight that s/he is now a
"man." On what basis? She still has the XX chromosomes. Does s/he have the same equipment as a man? Of course not. And so while she was in a
committed relationship with a female who is a lesbian, the fact that Chastity is now Chaz means the lesbian is now committed to a "man," so they
broke up. There's gotta be some humor in there somewhere!
It wasn't too many years ago that the liberal side of the equation was that gay folks might be made okay after years of therapy and they shouldn't
be burned at the stake. Now, of course, literally anything goes. Whatever you want because it's all about you.
And that's where you are extremely lucky. You live in an indulgent society that actually pretends to believe that you are "normal." In many
societies today and many more in the past you would not have the luxury of pretending you are female.
So how about a little thanks from you due to the fact that your indulgences are tolerated rather than you being burned at the stake? You are very
lucky to be living in this day and age.
