Transgender rights are Human rights

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=indigo] Anyone who doesn't support transrights has no right to call themselves a liberal, or a civil rights activist, a believer in social justice, or even a humanitarian.

[font color=Crimson size=5]They are just Assholes.[/font]

Same goes for their apologists[/font]

1. Agreed. Was this pointed at someone who claims to be liberal but isnt on this?

5. Totally agree!

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=indigo]People like her are an insult to all real feminist!

Bigots who tarnish the name of feminism to defend their bigotry are not feminist themselves.

To all the real feminist out there: I salute you and your work against the patriarchy!!![/font]

26. Fuck Germaine Greer

I liked her early work, but she lost it some time ago. Anyone who understands feminism should understand that rigid gender expectations are nothing but a tool for patriarchy, and the more our society blends--mix and match if you will--on gender the healthier we will become.

20. You should read many of his posts. They are pure gold!

He is one of the few hardcore advocates here who really gets through to people because of how he presents his case. I have to admit, I was a bit surprised to see him get so angry. He is usually so clam and collected one is tempted to check for a pulse! Like you, he reminds me there are some really outstanding people here who really make a difference!

ETA: I seem to have made a sex/gender error. I know there will be no offense taken, but it is better to be accurate when possible.

19. I was on the jury for that OP but dropped out..

I started reading the post and began to feel nauseous. The more I read, the sicker I felt. I'm sure I would have voted to hide, but couldn't bring myself to read any more. I'm not sure I would have seen it at all if not for the jury. I did go back and read some of the comments. Most were excellent, some were, where the fuck am I?
Who would read that crap? No feminist.

21. Once again, saying what needs to be said.

Sad that you and others constantly have to repeat yourselves. I understand the issues of transgender people can be difficult to understand, but making sure they are treated as equals, as humans, that should not be difficult to understand, but more than a few prove, time and time again, some people just don't fucking get it!

23. Thank you my friend

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=indigo]I appreciate the support

Though, I have to be honest with you, I am not a "her/she." I wish so very much I had been born a "her" though, and that is probably why transgender issues get me such a response out of me, but I am not.

But, I greatly appreciate the words of Encouragement from you, BMUS, and the others.

Thank you so much~![/font]

25. You are quite welcome.

I just made the edit! I knew you wouldn't be offended by it, but I try to be accurate. Many people still assume I am female as well. Don't bother me none, might bother my husband a bit if it were true...

You really do an excellent job at laying out an argument which is not only formidable, but impressive and heartfelt at the same time. I am just saddened you had to become so angry. I sadly understand that too.

28. You are right, no offense was taken at all

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=indigo]In fact I like being thought of as a female, but I embarrassed another internet friend long ago allowing them to think that, and I swore I wouldn't do that again.

Thank you sooo much for the kind words![/font]
