Here again, We're allowing our Gay cousins to control the dialogue! While the article is generally positive, the little quip at the end "It sucks to be Trans!" could have been done without. Gays are doing the same thing to us that they do to themselves, Casting us in a negative light! Encouraging the cult of liberal "Victimology" I know a lot of TSes for whom it doesn't "Suck". Who've had pretty good lives in spite of it all and without Gay liberation. The attack on "Conservatives" was not needed or accurate.
Go join the Democrat party and see just how welcome you are. Oh yeah, they'll kiss your ass to get you in and your vote, But they'll seldom allow you any important jobs. In time, you'll see that they hate us more than the republicans.

Transgendered life on television is glamorized, they don't show the harassment that they get for being different, they never who the struggles in life to accomplish some semblance of tolerance.
