You are calling people you have never met "freaks", simply because you don't understand them.

You deny their humanity. You want to deny them their right to live freely in a free society (I guess grabbing their taxes is okay) but you don't think it' about hate.

It ain't about love, Sweetiecakes.

Or rational thought.

I thought back on this one and just had to laugh.

You are against a transgendered person continuing to WORK while undergoing treatment, because the way the look insults your weak and tender sensibilities.

But, if they are not working, then you have no problem using the government taxes - YOUR tax dollars - to support their treatment and their lives.

You have to admit that's pretty funny.

You don't mind paying for their care out of your own pocket, but get prissy and insulted when they continue to work.

Why don't you just send the support check directly and cut out the government middle men?

More efficient and cost effective that way.

You call them freaks, yet you live in a cave that is a freak of nature. You eat food prepared in a freakish manner. You drive a machine that opposes nature. You wear freakish clothing instead of furs.

The word freak applies to you just as much as anyone, for at least the gay people are behaving naturally while you oppose nature by attack members of your own species with no logical justification for doing so.
