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,

      Sorry for the latent response here I knew I had read it before but I could not for the life of me remember where I had read it. How do I start a blog? Where do I go to do this...

      Hey Mex We all do that. Jackie is right it dose  take a lot of confidence and courage to wake up and be happy with you.  I know that sounds like some stupid Hallmark bull, but 2 yr ago i was ready to end it. I get the bills the booze  and wrote out a will. I took the bills drank the booze. Had the craziest nightmare. The next day i did not die,, i piss off. But it gave me some hope. Today i still get depress but not as bad and i stop judge myself against other CIS. Just head down , work save,  continue to fight  medical for my surgeries and work out.   Be safe, be proud and be happy being you

      Congratulations, Emily! on your commitment to self improvement and the opportunity for compassionate service to your fellow human beings. You've made a great choice.  Now, go and get it❣️
    • KayC
      That's a great post @Sandra6sandy9sand!  thank you for sharing your thoughts and connecting with what I am sure many of us are feeling. Regardless of our personal situations or differences, if somebody cannot see how interconnected we are by Covid and societies problems then they are truly lost.  This is actually a great opportunity for a fundamental change in America's "constitution" and direction (i.e., America's social conscious and morality ... not the actual Constitution... I agree it hasn't changed)   VOTE 2020❣️  
    • KayC
      That's a great attitude Leah, and that you have been able to settle into a comfortable place.   I see the value of therapy for myself (and others here I assume) as helping us to find our inner voice and start to live truly as we feel we should.  Its difficult to sometimes deal with the negative feelings as we may try to convince ourselves that the path to our journey should follow societies expectations. I hate labels, I hate the idea that we are somehow required to declare/come out, but I also know that's the reality that society places on us. YES!  I agree❣️❣️❣️

      My name was simple the female form of Andrew and used my moms middle name to honor her...

      My daughter is a little shy about her transition. First of all, after nearly 5 months, she looks like a girl and hard to distinguish otherwise, especially at her young age. How did it workout for you or your daughter? School is not going to start right away in person, however it will be online and he name is very feminine. The school faculty has been updated about her new status, but the students don't know as of yet. I appreciate you sharing your experiences so I can better prepare her. 
    • HollyNoel
      OK so here might be a fun question for everyone.   After you started presenting as either a woman or man, have you ever either dated someone you knew, like a guy friend or a girl friend, or have you been hit on buy someone you knew? I would love to know if transitioning changed the friend dynamic or made old friends think differently about you. You don't have to respond and you don't have to get specific with any details. I'm just curious if old friends see you as a completely different person after your transition.

      I compare the way I look with how other women look a lot. That's practically all I do all day at this point. I want to look like them.

      Bri2020, I wish you luck, just know that what ever happens, you have us to get support from.. Did you like the duct tape hair removal thing.. lol
    • HollyNoel
      I had my first gender therapy session last Tuesday. I told her thatb I've always known that I was a girl fron the youngest age and that I wished I could have switched places with my sister. I told her that when I finally told my mom I felt like a giant crushing weight had been lifted off my chest. At this point in my life I feel I'm ready to have the surgery but I know they want to make sure I'm sure thats what I really want. I feel that that is the best course of action. I may feel I'm ready but I haven't even lived as a woman yet. Though I still feel I'm ready. I wont regret having it. Been a dream of mine since I was 12.
    • Bri2020
      I'm in the hair removal process anyways so.....     Thanks everyone for your thoughts. Lots to think about.
    • Jani
      Good for you!  👏  Thanks for getting involved. 
    • Jani
      Some do not like that the WPATH protocols and look at them as gatekeeping.  But the time required to get approval is done to ensure you are ready and fully understand the change.  As I told my therapist, I knew it would only change what's below my belt and that only I would know.  (unlike electrolysis or body changes from HRT).  Its doesn't change how you react to others, or any other "issues" one might have.  Those that regret surgery IMO are those who have not prepared and been honest with themselves.  Obviously living as a woman has its good and bad sides.  After all we live in a male dominated society.  That said, I don't believe anyone here has any regrets!  I certainly don't.

      When I'm ready to come out on social media I'm just going to rip that duct tape right off and who ever decides they don't want to be around me or talk to me then I'm just going to let them go. There was only one person I was scared to tell and that was bmy mom, everyone else can just go lick a pickle! I can't keep caring about what people think of me. If they cared then they would be supportive and not judge me because of who I am on the outside. I'm still me, the wrapper doesn't change the candy bar. It's still the same candy on the inside. So for me at least, when it comes to social media, I'm just going to put it out there and whatever hair comes off with that sticky duct tape will have to just go.
