      She’s certainly brave, I’ll give her that. She’ll never just blend in I think that’s fair to say. Should that matter? Good luck to her.

      (I hate having to admit this but I found it really difficult using the pronoun “She” this time. It’s like my mind is jammed on the disparity between the visual aspect and my intellectual and emotional response. I really want to get over this. god I feel a really shitty person.)

      @PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID: I can understand that. Unfortunately, I think a high level of passability makes it much easier to slide into using the proper pronouns. Then again from the article I’m not entirely sure if she had started presenting female yet(or just as an increasingly feminine guy) or even changed her name or started going by female pronouns. I’m trans and in that weird in between state where everyday feels like the It’s Pat skit from SNL and I don’t even know what pronouns to use for myself most of the time. :P

      @vklortho: Awww bless you babe. I could’ve easily taken a beating on that one, you’re probably too kind to me. I am trying to do better i promise. Good luck on your journey. you come across as a lovely person.

      @vklortho: No, no you don’t. Anyone with that username is a fan of Ghostbusters and so could never be compared to Pat.

      Who cares what she looks like, this is ridiculous.

      And they complain about a shortage of teachers?? No sh!t, your firing them for silly stuff.

      Catholic? Bigoted? Shameful behavior(s) towards others? Vicious? Is there a surprise in this story that wasn’t blatantly apparent? Thought so!
