    The world is just fucked up.

    I'm sorry, you lose me on "transgendered". Maybe I will change my mind over time, but that seems to be someone more in need of therapy than to be given a rifle and put on a wall.

    Fair play to 'em, I say.

    I remember one encounter having an impact on me: I was at a convention about five years ago when I spotted amongst the crowd an elderly gentleman wearing a denim miniskirt. Despite my being very liberally minded as regards LGBT issues, my inner twelve-year-old took over and I stood and stared, probably - I'm ashamed to admit - with a smirk on my face. The gentleman noticed my attention, and stared back at me with an expression that said, "Yeah, fuck you, I'm wearing a denim miniskirt, now what are you going to do about it?"

    As days passed, that look he gave me stuck with me, and I started to get an idea of the sheer courage it took for him, at his age, to go out dressed as he pleased, and be able to face down a stranger who should have known better than to stare.

    Just last week, I met a transgendered woman who didn't "pass" terribly well, but it didn't seem to prevent her living as she wanted to live. I admire that.

    Considering the balls (pun intended) it takes to be transgender even in today's supposedly enlightened world, how much guts does it take to do it in a testosterone-driven environment like the military? And I'm pretty sure courage is a desirable trait in a soldier.

    nothing like calling for the extermination of a group of people. It's like we got sucked into a time machine and were dropped into 1941 Berlin. Or jumped on a plane and got dropped into an ISIS recruitment meeting. Pretty disgusting to think it, absolutely amazed anyone would post it.
