It goes to show why intersex people don't want to talk to transgender people. It's because how they act in public and who they are.

I'm an intersex and I don't even like them. I don't like the fact that they diminish and erase the intersex people's experience and upbringing. They use the intersex as a prop to advance their causes and agenda at the expense of the intersex community. They even have been known to use the intersex as an excuse or alibi when someone questions them.

Im sure there are plenty gay bars that have Karaoke, now a man becomes a women and is a drama queen and the transgender person is just causing problems, simple use the god dang handicap bathroom. Go to a gay bar or move to S. FL or San Francisco.

Thanks for the advertising. At least I tell people the truth way better than you. At least I don't spin intersex and erase the intersex community and intersex people's experience

If you want to know what intersex is, read this @

We have to stop discrimination it is 2008 and everyone deserves to be treated with equal respect regardless of our year too boot!! I have experienced racism thoughout my life for being obese and now that I'm thin it has been so different. It sadness me that people are so judged by their esthetics rather than there personality and soul.

The article states that he is in the process of changing his sex - if he still has the equipment he should use the handicapped bathroom - both sides need to be sensitive - "Storming" out gives me the sense that there is more to the issue - more like "here I am" dare to try and not like what I am doing. Why did he/she feel it was necessary to try and draw attention - sounds more like a trouble maker of either sex.

That I can agree with. They are more of a trouble maker and by pulling stunts like that, they are making more allies and they are making more enemies than they do with friends.

Well, Nick, I am pretty much over your childish insults, so just keep on to show the world who you really are. Isn't it interesting that not one single thread that you have posted on has had even one person agree with you? Hmmmmmm....

If you all want to see what this tranny looks like. The Journal Inquirer as a photo of the he/she IT. and this he/she works and I quote

"Merrill, who works second shift at C & S Wholesale Grocers in Suffield"

Would you want that person looking like that entering the woman's bathroom. I know I wouldn't.

Here is the link to the Journal Inquirer article.

I could keep going, but most of you won't take the time to even look at these. BTW, can you pick out who is transgendered and who isn't? There are some of both!
