I am sorry you seem to find some of my posts to be nasty. I simply believe that TSs belong in the mainstream community, and TGs need to remain in the LGBT community and recognize that they are not TSs (perhaps be thankful for and proud of that). I am part of the TS-Specific community which is my own invention. I have similar beliefs to the HBS or even CNI crowd, but I differ in the use of terminology. Most of my stuff is from independent invention because the whole TG/LGBT model has never fit my beliefs or needs, and I don't want or need the majority of what they claim to represent.
Unlike most you find on this subject, I invent my own wheel from scratch and make up my own mind. Nearly all TGs and over half the TSs let the "community" do their thinking for them. I don't. I am mostly a free-agent. Also, I am a person who has transition *AND* kept their moral values intact. I see so many who seem to have right wing, Christian, or anti-gay roots and then use transition as an excuse to walk away from who they really are to pretend to be someone popular. I see no contradiction to being Conservative, anti-gay, nor Christian and being a TS, and my model of TSism is inclusive of more true-TSs (those needing/having SRS) than the conventional one because it is more exclusive in other ways.
I was never pro-gay, and I needed a model that casts TSs as a part of the mainstream community. I see the LGBT and TG community as harmful to TSs. I have none of the mindless loyalty that all TGs and many to most TSs have towards LGBs nor TGs (when defined as everyone except TSs). I don't know how anyone can equate the birth defect of TSism with the choices of recreational CDing or any sexual-based lifestyle. That is something I inherently knew for much of my life.
If the LGBT/and TG community work for you, that is fine. But please, don't try to lump me in with those or with anyone who is lumped in with those nor use those terms to describe me. Nevertheless, I hope we share some wonderful communications and once you get to know me personally, things won't come across as offensive to you.
<quoted text>
all of which is fine, save for two things:

1 - I'm of the opinion that the entire LGB group is T. So are a great many of my peers in my field. Whether or not you choose to be grouped there, for the purpose of studying things, you will be. As will I. Doesn't change how we identify personally, but then, those labels were not created by us for us. THey were created by those who are not us in order to explain us to others who are not like us.

2 - Your position furthers the discrimination faced by the TS-Specific community, since, in the general culture, there is little perceived difference among any of the LGBT community (what is the most common slur used on a transsexual? Faggot).

All I'm going to say is that at least you aren't an HBS'er. I have an issue with , and I hate having to correct a sister or a brother.

if you don't mind, would you please explain to me the difference, if any, between transgendered and transsexual ?
thank you in advance
Transgender is anyone who crosses a line of *gender*, the social conventions that outline social sex roles (or gender roles).

This would be someone, for example, who goes from living as a man to living as a woman.

Transsexual is anyone who crosses the line of *sex*, the physical structure that defines someone along the spectrum of male and female. This is done not only through surgery, but through hormones, ultimately changing the physiological mae u the individuals to that of the target sex.

It is quite possible (and I know a few) for a transsexual to *not* be transgender, and, of course, its very easy for a transgender person to not be a transsexual.

Hope that helps :D

lol

no, I did not use a dictionary.

Sadly, there was one paper where I ended up have to use the word like 1000 times or some obscene number like that because it has a specific meaning and only it would do.

So while I've memorized that one, I still misspell because.

Gosh, I just noticed, your way up there in 'comments'. In about 3 days, I won't be on here nearly as much. But I've really enjoyed my time on here, and will check in very often.

I've learned so much about people, kind of.

It's a nice place to talk with friends, but I don't tell any of mine that I'm on here, cause I often, like most, get out of character and write things I'de probably be embarraced for some of my friends to read.
But thats the beauty of this site, you can write abstracly, like a painter. You can explore.

Or like the theater, you can perform for a night or evening, step off stage, undress, and do it again the following day.

There's a certain theraputical value in that.(boy I really butcherd that word).

Anyways, have a good relaxed rest of the night...

heh.

Now see, the only catch there for me is I really talk like and about this stuff in daily life.

Drives my boss nuts, as she's a bit more, in her words, ghetto than I am.

The reason for my post count is that Ive done a LOT of this. over the last year and a bit. Add another, um, 7K posts to that and that's roughly my total. Originally posted under a different name for several months.

What are you going to do when you get to 10,000?

Ever wonder who will be the person to recieve your 10,000 post?
I wonder who recieved my 1000 post?

I should be sleeping, some nights I just can't sleep.

Nights are so quiet and still, I just wish I could stop all time, or delay for a while.

Prolly nothing except keep going.

If I'm aware of it at the time, it will likely be the one I call "wusspot".

I was sleeping, but in the halfway house biz, house managers have to check on clients at weird hours, lol

People Please. Why is this getting so much attention? I mean it isn't like he parted the waters or made the blind see. This "man" being pregnant is not some kind of miracle from God or anything.

WAKE UP YOU IDIOTS!!!!!!! While you can say if it looks like a duck, talks like a duck, and walks like a duck then it is a duck. This is just the opposite. Just because he looks like a man, talks like a man, and lives like a man doesn't make him a man.

This man and his wife are getting rich and their 15 minutes and probably laughing at all of you on their way to the bank. This "man" may look like a man on the outside but on the inside he is a WOMAN and therefore "he" has the ability to get pregnant and carry a baby. Please tell me what the big deal is here. It is not like "he" went bed as a woman and woke up as a man. "He" is a female and females have babies. This is not some miracle that deserves the attention that it is getting. Please tell me what is so fascinating about a woman getting pregnant and giving birth and just happens to "dress-up" as a man.
