I try so hard not to get in debate against any letter of the LGBT community. I really feel that for the most part, we all have similar agendas and understand the plight of each other. In an ideal world, we all would have that understanding and be the driving collective force for all of our rights. No one left behind, but no one lives in an ideal world. There are some minority that are marginalized but do not care or even take the time to see, understand, or assist in the rights of others. They spread propaganda and hateful opinions just like their oppressors do. Like how Hispanics put down and solidify the stereotypes of African American, and vice versa, both are minority and would be more successful in reaching equality together than seperate. This same principle holds true in the LGBT communities, some gay individual dont even try to understand the transgenders experience. They will act like they do, but then spew out some basic cliches statements like “they feel like a man trap in a woman body…yes I know.” If you ask them anything outside of that, they dont know crap. Recently I watch a show, hosted by Israel Luna the directer of Ticked-off Trannies with Knives, that was a shining example of how off based some of these hypocritical gay people can be. The walk around with these trans-bashing mind sets, wearing the mask of a defender of equality. They throw us and our rights under the bus and chance they get and contemptously feel our rights should be limited. Take a listen to my video where I discuss and include some of the commentary from the show.

The premise of not changing the documentation of historical event I actually semi agreed with…and I made that clear…my issue was the rest of the stuff…i felt like i was listen to Bill O’Riely and Rush Limbaugh discuss gay rights…the conversation was very dismissive. There was not research done about the topic especially pertain to what a trangender person is. John De Los Santos says “she’s crazy and nutty” for feeling like a woman with out the sex change…Sex change is not the sole criteria for being trans ..and it doesn’t determine if one is a REAL trans or not. Then Allyn Carrell saying “you would hope that she wouldn’t win” oh really…im personally hope that our justice system would be fair and consider the facts, science, and other precedences of birth certificate corrections and i hope they don’t make an quick mindless decision like Ms Carrell…that what I would hope….and the audacity of saying “they’re are asking for too much” or that the freedom we all ready have is enough” ….I guess DADT being repeal should be enough for gays too…yalll don’t need anything else……..the whole convo was so reminiscent of the Bible thumpers dismiss LGBT rights as a whole….because they feel it wrong and inappropriate based on the history of the traditional definition of marriage…
I just feel the dialogue was inappropriate especially coming from member of the LGBT
