Too bad that it took Jennifer so long to find out that Gays are very self centered people. I found out in the 1980s. I was visiting a T-girl who worked in a Gay bar. She was wearing a nice skirt and blouse and she looked good. While sitting on a bar stool, the guy next to me nudged me and said, "I don't know why "he" has to do that!" The width of the divide between us became clear at that moment. I have not bothered to support GL organisations since then.

Ufortunately, since most LGB people are as cisgender as straights, too many of them just don't get it. And too many of them remain willfully ignorant. You'd think they would know better but, hey, I know more than one homophobic trans person too.

OTOH, I know many cis LGBS people who are very accepting, even if they don't really understand.
