From the Transgender Capitol of the world! There seems to be as much bad information, poor understanding, discrimination, and outright lies about us in in the west. BTW Gay people do not cross dress! Transgendered people cross dress! If someone cross dresses they are Transgendered, not gay!

Buddhism in no way accepts homos and pedos and other freaks in the true Sangha. That is a false Sangha.

Only if one loves the Buddha, the truth, more than feelings for friends, family, sexual attractions are you accepted. Those who want to remain slaves to the 5 skandhas have no place in the Dharma!

Part of Shila is
Right speech involves abstaining from
lying, gossiping, or hurtful talk.

samadhi, a part is right mindfulness is the focusing of one's attention on one's body, feelings,
thoughts, and consciousness in such a
way as to overcome craving, hatred, and
ignorance.

You must be a certified protector of feelings for pedos and sodomists.

Again, anyone ordaining these mentally deranged weirdos should be disrobed.

What bothers you so much about transgendered people? Are you attracted to them? Must be, since you're so adamantly opposed to them. Now, go put on that hot dress and meet the guy you've always wanted!

No you monkey, now you will ask what bothers me so much about criminals and other deranged people...your deranged brain is revealed.

Idiots like you don't belong in the Dharma if evil does not repulse you. Transgendered people are so because thy accept their evil bodies as self. If they don't reject evil than they are evil since they own it.

A Buddhist must guide people away from deranged mind states never accept it.

Monkhood is for straight men who want to live a lifestyle conquering the kilesas.

It's not the end of the world for those GLTB people, Dhamma for the layfolks can help them lead more meaningful lives, with much more wholesome way of living with the six senses
