Hiding my candy

Just wondering aloud here, but what do transgendereds have in common with gay and lesbians? We are the GLBT community, are we not?

Who made that decision, and why? (And why wasn't I consulted??) I really don't see any similarities between me and, say, Renee Richards. Not that I think the former tennis star isn't deserving of the same liberties I am, but outside of sexual oppression, what unites us?

One is attracted to the same sex, while the other wants to change their sex. Again, where's the common thread?

Maybe it's just a numbers thing ... are there really enough transgendereds to support a "community?" Best of luck to them, but I don't really see how wanting to cut off your dick equtes to wanting to ... well, you can guess where I'm going with this.

  1. Nothing. It has nothing to do with us. I think they suffer from something like anorexics, who look in the mirror & see Rosie O Donnell. Transies put on their wig & their scarf & their pantsuit & see Natalie Portman, while the rest of us see a man who's cut off his willy.
