66. In most respects I've been a loony lefty all my life
but I'll admit that until relatively recently I had a real problem with transgender issues. It's not that I wanted to go out and beat people up or anything, in fact I would have been with the first people raising a ruckus if someone else had. I just didn't understand. The issues just weren't what I thought they were. But I was lucky enough to have a wonderful coworker who happened to be nearing the end of sex-reassignment surgery. She was very understanding of where I was coming from and she really turned my views around. I guess that's why I objected when I read the comments criticizing this or that about the OP's comments instead of celebrating the fact that there was one less bigot in the world.
