12. To be transgender is to be constantly invalidated and vilified.

- You are not a real (man or woman), and you never will be.

- You cannot use the correct bathroom, but you cannot use the other bathroom either

- You cannot play in sports. Should you win, itís because you have an advantage. If youíre FTM, then you shouldnít participate either - youíre simultaneously too strong for the girls and too weak for the boys.

- Youíre making it up / have mental issues. Being transgender is a mental illness (that we ironically donít think should be treated, just ridiculed).

- Youíre inherently dangerous - stay away from our kids!


Imo, the people who feel so strongly and angrily about this would have felt the same way about black and white desegregation. They have the same mental flaws and bigoted personality traits that cause them to be prejudiced now. I bet, for 99% of them, this isnít just about sports. Itís about invalidating and destroying a segment of the population they donít think should be allowed to exist.

Like the bathroom issue, this story, for example, is a rallying cry for bigots. Itís not about the sports. Like with most organized bigotry, the stated issues they have with us is a smokescreen for what theyíre really trying to do. Theyíre wonderful bull crap artists.
