I always wondered why surgery was the treatment suggested for what they claimed is a MENTAL condition.

Harks by to the days of lobotomies and Dr. Mengele.

They have recently found a prehistoric grave which included a man in female garments and adornments; clearly the oldest known case of transvestism; he had been buried with all due honors for the dead.. Isn't it a shame that so many people in the 21st century are less civilized than our ancestors tens of thousands years ago?

No, he wasn't; he died of entirely natural causes.. But maybe it should be tried on you .. Not that there would probably be any improvement in your particular kind of mental sickness.. And I greatly doubt anybody would miss you..

Then how come you're still around? Error of judgement? Or did mommy take pity on you? She probably thought you'd make a good door-stop.. if nothing else..

Yes, it can be interpreted the right way and your own sick way.. but I'll stick with the scientists, not with the mentally-unbalanced (or am I being too kind..?).

The real question is, Why are YOU still around? But then that's an easy question to answer. Your poor old mom had no idea her offspring would turn out to be some sort of freak/pervert. Had she known before hand, it would have been like, please abort abort. That's right
My mother and I got along beautifully.. She wasn't a troglodyte, like the people you've been around of.. And there you have the tragic results, right inside your skin.

No. Being GLBT is not a "birth defect", but homophobia IS. Please get help for your bigotry by contacting your local county mental health society. They can direct you to a SECULAR counsellor.
