Okay, Apparently People Aren't Getting This....

1.  WE JUST WANT TO PEE IN PEACE.

2. STRAIGHT PRIDE IS HATE PRIDE.

3. WE ARE NOT TERRORISTS.

4. WE ARE NOT TRYING TO ATTACK CULTURE.

 

 

Okay, so here's a point I would like to bring up but it may make people mad. (*oh noooo*)

 

You say that Jesus is God because he lived and did all of these magical things.

I've walked on water, too.

That's right.

Oh, you don't believe me?

Why not?

Because I don't have proof?

You don't need proof. You need faith.

 

Sigh, I don't want this to be blocked for being offensive or anything. It's just some points that I am tired of people who are against us talking about them. 

 

Why can't people just let. us. be.

I get the frustration, and I am at least regular in my church attendance, and see the points you are trying to make without feeling personally attacked. There are Trans people who do have deep spiritual parts of their lives and they see what you are pointing to.  Beliefs that are over 4K years old are being weaponized, because it is easier to spew out "old knowledge" that it is to change and learn new information, especially if people have not been prepared to study the new information, but its easy to take things on "faith" which simply means someone who knew only the little years ago still knows all things today.  Not true and needs a change.

Cause they are miserable. If they were happy, they would not be trying to make others unhappy. For some, it makes people happy when they make others unhappy. Some people are just miserable. The extremist go to great lengths to hurt others, and use religion as an excuse. One cannot profess love, then turn around and do hateful things to others. Those types need to mind their own business.

Exacrtly!!!! It's sickening to think anyone would beleive otherwise.

 

This reminds me, based on what you've said, if you haven't watched it already, there's a section from a stand-up routine of Lewis Black I think you might enjoy. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the video, I just remember it's from back when George W. Bush was president (the more recent younger one, not the older one from the 80's). The particular segment is a scathing satire of anti-homosexual sentiment and the absurd notion that it could destroy american families. If you hear the phrase "Gay Banditos"...you've found it :)

I'm NOT disagreeing with you at all here, so don't get me wrong. And I absolutely understand the frustration. I don't know what (if it was even any one thing in particular at all) prompted this obviously genuine need to speak out, and I will not ask because it's none of my business unless you choose it to be, and that is perfectly OK. So what I CAN say, and just hope I'm near the mark is this:

 

If I saw some sort of "straight pride" event, then I'd say, in this current climate, ESPECIALLY here in the US these last few years,  it's DEFINITELY most likely to be a matter of hate speech.

 

But, it does bring up a point that I think is important for EVERYBODY (gay, straight, cis, trans, bi, questioning, ANYTHING) to always keep in mind: "Equality" means "Equality". For EVERYONE.

 

Just as an example, I'll ask you this: When you feel pride at being trans, do you intend that pride at who you are to also double as being hatred for cis individuals? I imagine I'm likely not going out on any limb here to assume that's probably not your intent. And again, don't get me wrong, there's absolutely no doubt there ARE, unfortunately, narrow-minded individuals out there will take their hatred and bigotry and disguise it, like you say, as "straight pride". And that's very unfortunate.

 

But, if trans and cis (not to mention gay, bi, straight, fluid, and everything else) are ever to achieve equality, then everyone, on all sides will have to accept that either EVERYONE is allowed to feel pride in who they are (trans, cis, etc...) or NOBODY is allowed. Because that's what equal means: "We are the same".

 

Cheers, and I hope you find the serenity you're looking for. We (humanity) are all in this together...

Being from the northeast i walk on water every winter.  From what i know of the New Testament trans folks shouldn't be a problem.  Those throwing stones certainly aren't without sin.

 

Hugs,

      Son and I had the talk tonight.He came up and told me that he wanted to talk to me about something.I said sure,it was in his room and was surprised what he asked me.Asked me if I thought he had an inner female side to him.I looked at him and said that is his decision.Since meeting Adrianna for the first time on Saturday for the first time,has thought he had an inner female side to him too.Told him this is his decision to make and knows I will support him no matter what.Plus he did take my advice very well knowing I was right.He is 15 years and is old enough to make the right decisions in his life,I don't have to make them for him.Then we discussed it more and asked him what would be his female name if he ever decided to dress as female part time,picked the name Stacy.Then he made his decision up after I asked what would be his decision.Looked at me and said he has one.I thought that was cool,wants to surprise his twin sister on their birthday in March.They are close,she has always wanted a sister in her life too.I am supportive of his decision,going to take him to where I get fitted for bras and get him fitted for the right breast forms including bras this weekend.Good thing is we don't have to buy a wig,he has long hair that he loves we can quickly style.I also have long hair too.I am proud of him and is glad I am being supportive.

      Devin townsends empath album,of all the albums hes made so far this is my favourite, some really emotional moments for me. My favourite track is here comes the sun,the last song on the album on the compendium track,then probably genesis.

      Also, when looking for what suits you, I would -now stay with me here - go to Goodwill. It is an easy, affordable way to figure out what looks good on you, and really lets you develop a personal style.

      I have a pretty good eye for fashion, and really enjoy it as an art form however, when it comes to how I dress, baggy tough jeans, a t-shirt and a hoodie is more than enough for me to look in the mirror and say "my man!" I am also far too messy to keep up a nice wardrobe; I keep all of my clothes in a pile on top of my bed. My cats like sleeping in it, and it is so cute. But seriously Spencer, if you are looking for young men's fashion, it starts and ends with the hoodie. There is only 1 guy I know who doesn't wear them daily, and that is because he wears sweatshirts instead. What type you wear can say a lot about you (as crazy as that sounds), and you can pair them with a winter coat, a jean jacket, whatever makes it feel more you.

      I suppose this is because she sees you as dead now?  Sad that she cannot see past the thin outer skin to the core of your life, which I can only imagine has been fine up until now.  Do your best to stay happy and healthy Donna.  This will be your reward.      Jani

      Hi megan,its nice to hear your story, when i think of someone transitioning i dont necessarilly think of them as wanting to become something, with the proper frame of mind youre only merely cultivating whats already there,i dont know, i have a lot to learn, i just thought it might help a little,be well.

      Thanks Jackie,  I think their logic is that God made you a male and you are going against His will and his intention.  My logic is that birth defects happen and He allows them as he allows an imperfect world. Life would be boring and we would not have a need for God if everything was perfect.  If you want perfect go for heaven.    So when you are TG, God, in my humble opinion accepts that and DOES NOT want you to worry about His judgment with that issue and He IS kind and loving and has been to me.  God is not the problem, Evangelical Christians are and they are in the minority among Christians.  More and more denominations are arriving at accepting LGBT as "LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR" trumps all other issues.    So as to my wife, she was made that way too, believing what she does and she can't help it any more than we can.  She finds comfort in believing all the rules and that makes her feel safe, so I love her and don't hold it against her and I feel bad about how this is affecting the last years of life that she planned on.  I am 74 and she told me she is going to become a widow prematurely.    I am grateful that she is not trying to destroy me the way some women do when getting a divorce.  Hugs to you too.  Donna

      Eh, close enough. 😋   Makes me cold just thinking about it.   Hugs!
    • Aidan5
      haha I wear jeans sometimes but mostly shorts, my legs don't get cold and I have gym first period. Everyone calls me stereotypical heterosexual!! Clearly not the complete case haha
    • Jackie C.
      You really don't. Seriously, women dress for other women. As long as you look like you're clean and take a little pride in your appearance, you're good. It might be different now, but when I was your age peacocking just got you funny looks.   OK, the shorts are a little weird. It's freaking cold out. At least it is here.   Hugs!

      Yes, it can be intense, especially the lip.  Hopefully the clinic is giving you some soothing gel to use for afterwards.  It helps reduce the incidence of acne, which I developed during my treatments.  Unfortunately I can no longer recall the name of the product.   Carolyn Marie

      wo-  Maybe I should look into fashion myself! I am all hoodies and shorts! I also wear blacked out nike shoes so I need some fashion beat into me haha
    • Jani
      As a woman, how does she make ends meet?  I understand that some of these are in deed silly when you step back a bit.  But it does show the level of misunderstanding people have about transgender folks!  All of those questions would seem weird if asked to her, but I totally get her point.  I think it will be a nice visit where you can dispel any and all rumors  (and show off your dust free home!)   As to whether she missed something way back when; well they do say love is blind!     Jani
