GUEST,josepp BS: About This Whole Transgender Thing.... (147* d) BS: About This Whole Transgender Thing.... 16 Jun 12

I understand that some people might feel the need to change genders. But I don't think that gives them the right to be considered actual members of that gender. Uh-oh, look out, I'm being terribly unfair and un-PC again.

I don't care if a guy changes his gender but he has no right to expect me to think of him as a woman. Frankly, I don't. I think of him as what he is when you scrape away all the PC bullshit, all the makeup, all the feminine clothing, all the wigs and girly hairstyles, all the plastic surgery, all the lifelong estrogen shots he needs to take to maintain this facade--a castrated male.

Do I think they should be allowed to compete in beauty pageants that are supposed to feature women? No. I don't really care, though, because I don't watch that shit anyway. But if I was a judge in one of those things and I knew certain contestants were transgender males, they are automatically discounted. I won't consider them for two seconds. Why? Because they're men!

I get tired of this whining I keep reading about in the news: "I'm a beautiful, vibrant woman!" No, you're not. You're a bloke who cut his big sazech off so he can prance around in makeup and dresses without feeling guilty about being a man. You can get married to a man and if you're happy with each other, that's fine with me. You can dress how you want, I don't care. But DON'T tell me how I have to regard you.

And, yes, I think you need to let a man know you're transgender before you get into a relationship. He has a right to know whther you think you're a woman or not.

To me it's as silly as if some white man surgically changed himself into a black man and then starts telling me i have to regard him as a black man. No, I don't. I would have to regard him as an idiot though.

Have at it.
