One thing to know is that a significant (addled, right wing) portion of the trans community denies being part of the lgb community in the first place.

I just don't understand the "transgender" part. You are a woman in a man's body or vice versa. When you become the other gender, why don't you just become the other gender and drop the "transgender" label. Anybody could support that. Looking for special clout because of the "transgender" label is what people find a little repulsive, not the fact that you used to be a different gender.

Very good point. I agree. It's really the same as being gay and all this "coming out" nonsense. if you're gay then be gay. Why tell everybody about it?
Fine, then Bishop Romney and the rest of you should stop revealing your sexual orientation by parading the spawn around in public, discussing romantic comedies, talking about dates, putting engagement announcements in the newspapers, having beauty pageants.

You're sexually sick is all, and educated society has rejected you.

Divorced, hypocrite, stone age mullahs like you are not expected to understand anything. You are expected to oppose equal rights and rationality, of course, but you're having a harder time of it these days.

You see "male" and "female" as exact, polar opposites, the way you see every issue in the world in completely black and white terms. It goes with your cult alike, sexually sick, authoritarian, "religious" beliefs.

Until you want a divorce...contrary to what the buybull says about marriage.

1. Did you tell your parents to leave you at home?
2. Don't listen in.
3. Why not?
4. Those aren't for couples.
5. Get away from the mirror, you're talking to yourself again.

Hey "non" religious christardate, the point is if you sexually sick homophobes want to go on and on and on about how lgbt people should never make their sexual orientation known, or never discuss their dating or their sex lives, then you ostensibly heterosexual homophobes may do the same regarding your relationships and sexual activities.

It has nothing to do with my tuning anything out. I don't care if people make their sexual orientation known. That other, sick homophobe stated he has a problem with people making their sexual orientation known. Fine, then he can act according to his own (lying) standards.

I knew it would be too complex for you.

But that's the whole problem Wonderexcrement has in life - those damn Rice Krispies _never_ stop talking to him. They just won't be quieted. They just won't.

And it drove him quite mad.

why the hoopla and alphabet names like GLTBQ etc.

These are nothing but bisexuals who decide when they want as to what they want. they're Look at the married ones who all of a sudden change their minds midstream and others to change it like flipping a switch back and forth. Just people with nothing but what to do with their crotches on their mind instead of just living in the mainstream.

Many years ago, back in the eighties, I thought I was part of the LGB group. Then I found out they didn't like me.(Or any Transgendered people) They just couldn't wrap their minds around the fact that a person could feel this way. There were only two choices be gay or be straight. Many other Transgendered had similar experiences. Many thought that the T was at the end as an afterthought. Many thought that they only wanted us to be characters in their parades.The Gay groups made promises that they knew they weren't going to keep. So who needs them? If you look up the history of Trans rights, You find that we ourselves made it happen. People like Virginia Prince, Phyllis R Frye, Sylvia Rivera, Marsha Johnson, Lynn Conway, and the thousands of girls whom were victimized in one way or another and fought back themselves with no help from a Gay group. So what good would it do to align ourselves with gays? I don't want to be thought of as part of a gay group, I'm not and I prefer it that way.
We got this far on our own and we can get what we need without your help ,Thank you!

! Some of our brain structures are different due to a hormone shower at a critical time in our fetal development. We are not mentally ill !
2 To whom are we disgusting? People area lot nicer to me now than when I was trying to be male. Many men crave a T-girl, you'd be surprised! Disgusting? No!
3 Disgusting and nasty are almost the same, see #2 answer
4 Ditto for #4 and #1
5 Considering that we're only 1% of the population, I guess we are freaks. But I'm a Freak in many ways. I have a Mensa level IQ that puts me in the top 1 %. I am a Pilot and less than 1% of the population have a pilot's license. And a few other things too. Yeah, I guess technically I'm a freak!

Right, cretin, because heterosexuals aren't fixated on sex and matters of sexuality....

BTW, what bring you here to this forum today...?

Those people do not disparage the lgbt community or separate themselves from it (even when disappointed by it, as feminists are often disappointed by the community,) nor are they insane, right wing tee baggrz with homophobes as their "friends."

You don't speak for them.

People shouldn't have the right to mutilate themselves. It's indicative of severe mental illness. Such an insignificant number of maladjusted people shouldn't be the focus of a President, when he doesn't give a crap about the hundreds of women and children he's killed in Eastern Ukraine by arming and funding (with our money) people using heavy artillery on hospitals and schools.

Every other species on Earth eliminate this type of trash from their gene pool.

This story's subject is the President's continuing efforts to oppose discriminating, defaming bigots such as yourself. It's not about an "insignificant" number of person, it's about rejecting filth like you on principle.

If you're so upset about fascists in Ukraine then you suit up and get on over there with your NRA approved assault rifle.

As usual, you don't know what you're talking about. Virginia Prince fought the Gays relentlessly. So did Sylvia Rivera, Read their stories! I can't say what Phyllis Frye did, Lynn Conway make no mention of them whatsoever. Donna Rose quit HRC because of Gay duplicity.
You spent yours and now you want mine!
