This article and the person portrayed are important because they show us fitting in. We're not living in a "Gay Ghetto" in some city, afraid to stick our noses out. Barbara is living her life as the woman she always knew she was. Kudos!

I think that this is what used to be called a back handed compliment. Or "damning with faint praise". Of course I realize trained mental health "professionals" such as yourself are in a better position to judge her state of mind than we who only suffer with this. What do we know? Funny though, how life smooths out once a person who has this, decides to transition. "But they were Sane before, now they're sick!" No! You just didn't know what you were looking at!

Typical Gettysburg hicks, hating everything different from them. They're the dumbest bunch of morons I have ever seen in my life.
That's why there is a violent street gang crisis in Gettysburg and there have been many child rapes/molestations in Gettysburg recently. Read the news stories here in Topix. Shootings, stabbings, murders, robberies... A hiker was STALKED DOWN AND SET ON FIRE IN GETTYSBURG by 5 gang members.
Repeat sex predator felons live in Gettysburg, 30 who have registered on the Pa. State Police Megan's Law website, probably hundreds who haven't registered or haven't been caught yet.
I'm glad the parade got cancelled. I hope this god-forsaken borough is flattened by a series of tornados. I hate this festering toilet of a town. Gettysburg eats turds.
I don't understand why those living in and around Gettysburg are such haters.
How sad to think they only think of themselves as being perfect, when we all know that isn't the case.

Hell? The only hell that exists is the one ignorant fear based people full of existential angst create by their bigotry,hate and violence here on earth for people they view as not comporting to their non scientific Bronze Age and Medieval allegedly sacred books,thinking and theology. Get an education and start studying the essence of all the great faith systems;Love of God & Neighbor as yourself,because if you do not love your neighbor you are hypocrite and not loving your God.

OMG I never realized I was going to hell over this! Are you sure? I don't hurt anyone, I just feel better when I'm like a woman. In fact,It's so bad, I feel really lousy as a man. Sometimes I wonder if I should even go on living it's so bad. I never feel that way when I'm dressed as a woman and just being myself. Especially after I read Jesus' words in Matthew 19:12. Jesus called us Eunuchs but not with hatred. Go read it Matt, 19:12.

What does lmmfao mean? Is that Gettysburg speak for "I'm a dumb hick whose self esteem is tied to some two-bit town with a street gang crime problem?"

So we should look for you to be there, of course. You call tell us all about the first hand account of your dead descendent.

He/she probably only participates in these activities with the hope of getting butt banged by an entire regiment of filthy reenactors made up of the likes of Pinkeye, Davenport, and Stevieboy.

Awwww... Dumb little hick is getting mad that his posts are being deleted.

He is voiceless during the Gettysburg Child Rape and Street Gang Discussions.

Good. Nobody cares what you stupid hicks from Gettysburg think anyway.
