try to prove to the world and ourselves what rugged He men we are. But it never works, we're just more miserable. Sooner or later we find ourselves gravitating back to our only true happieness, expressing our female side. So a hell of lot of thought, angst, and misery precede any overt actions on our part. Please find a little about it before you write this drivel.
I'm talking about a person's alleged "right" to (1) come to work in drag simply because they "feel" like the other sex or perhaps a mixture of it, or (2) to use the opposite restroom for the same reason. This is a FAR CRY from merely passing anti-discrimination laws against those who are gay or 'drag it up' on their own time.
I remember in Albany (NY) a few years ago there was this total freak-a-zoid high school student who did-up his hair in really long "points" so that his head looked like an early Sputnik satelite, and to make matters WORSE he claimed that "this hairstyle was an integal part of his homosexuality"! If I had been a fellow 'ordinary-acting' gay student in that school I would have been OUTRAGED to be 'placed in the same category' as him.
The trouble with many members of the gay community is that they feel the obligation to emulate the feakiest gay persons in Greenwich Village, West Hollywood,'Frisco, etc. along with 'fellow aliens' like Lady Gaga ... and yet they themselves live in America's "Peorias" and expect to be totally accepted. THIS is what causes backlashes on this particular topic.
You DON'T have to "externalize" every feeling just to be "chic" if it's going to cause trouble, like the lesbian who before coming out appears no more androgynous than, say, Rachel Maddow, but after doing so "feels the obligation" to shave her head, get mega-tattoos, and go the total bull dyke route, and of course the same goes for the gay male who suddenly "transforms" into a lisping, limp-wrist who acts like his first name is "Elspeth" after coming out.
Yes, I feel sorry for genuine hermaphrodites, and perhaps they could be the exception, but numbers-wise they are few-and-far-between.
