And I’m feeling very…..
I again appologize for my poor tying skills. And if anyone cannot decipher my spelling, well I tried. However, do be clear on my spelling of the last word in this post….. S-T-U-P-I-D !!!!!!!!!!
I always felt that Charlie brown was steeped in transgender issues. And likewise was not well understood by others. It is an Asberger’s syndrome symptom, to be socially inept and unable to engage so as to be understood. Another medical issue common to transsexuals and those who suffer GID.
In all that I have tried to relate to the Trans-Community is the simple understanding that we are “NOT ON THE GAY RADAR.” I am not saying that we do not have supporters, or that we should alienate ourselves from the gay community. What I am saying is that we are not part of their gay initiatives and are, in fact, have been maligned so as to appear the freaks in front of the public. ENDA and the rhetoric by Barney Frank and Joe Solmonese excluding us should have been clear to “everyone” that we were considered un-equal. And since ENDA, HRC has not indicated that they really want to represent any transgender initiative. They have accomplished their goal to move to a position of corporate power. We will in the future see what has been built dissolve and be rescinded should we not act quickly.
In 2000 before my Transition, I was involved with my church and the community. My closest friends knew of my gender issues and Gender Dysphoria. They had known of this for some 15 years before my transition. Yet, I was respected as were my family and children in the church. In one meeting I sat in discussion and had been shown films gathered during gay parades around the country. They were shocked to see nude men, and gays dressed HAG DRAG; it was revolting and an affront to anyone’s sense of propriety. In that meeting several looked at me as one of them. And from that time forward I was diminished and removed from even participating in the activity which my own children were involved. I was ousted and cut off from the church and its functions. Except for my three sons and ex spouse, all others turned their back on me, They assumed, and still promote the idea that I am gay etc. I have not had intercourse since my marriage, but that makes no difference, I am painted by the same colors that the militant gay community wanted to project. When you go to a club and there is a drag show, it is derogatory to the trans-community. Worse, the same militant groups would go to various churches and often in HAG DRAG try to disrupt the services being held.
So we wonder why Traditional Values Org. and the likes of Dobson are so vehement against us? Why do you suppose society has a perverted view of us, thinking we are dangerous and the lowest of sexual animals. Yet, HRC and the GLBt movement has been diligent to portray themselves as clean cut, conservative, and above reproach. At the same time they have continued vilifying the Transgender, Transsexuals, and Intersex through various activities and parades. At no time has HRC, or any of the GLBt organization, stepped forward to denounce the activity I have previously mentioned. It is a planned and very well orchestrated activity. They have also been clever to suck in Transgender support and align us with activities that often are questionable at best. Certainly, it has not been to our advantage to be associated with the carnival atmosphere that often is portrayed by the gay community. And to see Transgender activism which is carried out in a way to offend the public has it results. One of the results is that ENDA is moving on with out us. Would we be included in 2009, or some later date as an add-on? Don’t expect cake and candles, or party balloons as we are not going to be invited to any gay gala, unless there is something which enhances the gay movement. Gee, you ever wonder why it is the gay movement?
Charlie brown bite the dust, and everyone laughs, or has pity from afar…. Yet, no one will hold the bal for Charlie. No one will chide Lucy, or call her actions horrible, as she is too tough. Everyone else loves Charlie, but is afraid to suffer too. And Lucy continues to smile, all the time lying and double-dealing to Charlie’s face….. Charlie is pathetic, he is STUPID!
