      I am SO glad that we are seeing more transgendered and intersex people out in the open.

      I never cared for practicing bisexuals. To me, they were always the scum of the LGBT community. No wonder there is a heavy dislike among them in the gay community—and I perpetuate it. :-)

      But transexuals and intersex? I LOVE and DIE FOR. I saw a film documentary on National Geographic Channel last night and I am amazed at the courageous experiences of these people.

      Huh? I can introduce you to dozens of gays who can’t stand lesbians, bisexuals who identify with straights, lesbians who are confused and angry that every third butch girl seems to be deciding she’s a man, and so on.

      Like it or not, somebody decided there’s strength in numbers, so we’ve all wound up as mere letters in this Acronymn-American Movement. Hopefully we’re learning something about one another and maybe some tolerance although most of the time it seems we’re just beating up on somebody for some imagined offense like not referring to Chastity Bono as a “he” just five minutes after reading he’s now “Chaz.”

      With all this attention on Caster Semenya, I suppose we’ll be adding Intersex soon, which is fine.

      We could use a vowel for a change.

      @Lloyd Baltazar: No, if there’s scum among us, it’s you.

      WTF is with people thinking that just because they experience life a certain way, it can’t be experienced differently??? Seriously, both @Lloyd Baltzar and @rudy are idiots.

      @Emily: Eh, it’s best to ignore the trolls.

      I’m just glad that there’s been such an increase in trans visibility over the last few years and that Queerty covers these topics…

      Gee, I don’t know, Emilym and I never said anything like that.

      What part of “Hopefully we’re learning something about one another and maybe some tolerance” don’t you understand?

      @Lloyd Baltazar:

      Why can’t people be attracted to people as people, regardless of their body or body type? Sheesh, talk about intolerance. Men and women are both beautiful. They have their own types of beauty and ways of being. You meet nice people of both genders, cis, trans and all orientations. It’s about the person’s character and way they treat you. Anything else should be easy enough to get around. ;) How crappy do people like Lloyd have to make it for the rest of us?
