I had a four-day break and vacation and you would think that I would go nuts and dress up in my leotards, tights, and prance about and be girly. Honestly, I didn't even think of it. I wore spandex on night and that was about it for dress up. I spent at least two days in pajama bottoms and 4 days in hockey jerseys. It was a busy week for the Hartford Wolfpack and I caught all the games on the web broadcasts. They win against the likes of Providence, Springfield, and Portland but can't cash in on a perfect weekend as they lose to Bridgeport 4-1 today.
Lately the Transgender posts I have been reading has had a bit of a focus on public perceptions and Fox News damnation and comparing the transgender community to the war in Iraq by Linda Ingrham... sad. Apparently, according to the O'Reily Factor's Linda Ingrham, society is being destroyed by the transgender community- coincidentally at the time of a transgender conference in Berkely in California.
Everytime I hear this kind of idiocy from the likes of Fox News, it makes me cringe and want to scream to deafen these ultra-conservative Bible jockeys who think Fox News is the world's leader in the Word of God.
Canada is looking better and better with each passing day. Thank God I get my news from BBC World and the Daily Show by John Stewart and The Colbert Report. At least there I know I'll be entertained and get what will at least make me laugh. Fox News is full of shit.
In relation to my own situation, the more "horror stories" I hear of how people react to transgendered people, the more reluctant I am to consider my options and choices for transitioning. It is hard to believe that people could be so ignorant and visceral, but they are and it doesn't take much to piss off the "Heartland of America" folks who still belive George Bush's mission is accomplished. It doesn't take much to look back and see how society treated homosexuals before the explosion of awareness in the 80's. It doesn't take much effort for me to recall just how people reacted to the existence of transgendered people. God forbid that a person wishes to be someone more in harmony with what they feel. I don't get it. At what point does a minority of people seeking their true identities undermine the dominance of an overwhelming majority? What is this, Orsen Well's 1984?
I doubt anything the liberal, homosexual, transgender populations do will unravel the fabric of human existence or "mainstream" society. I so doubt that anything we do would undermine the Christian Coalition/700 Club/Republican belief in God and their Mandate of Heaven over the American Dream.
I don't see how gay marriage, sex changes, or homosexuality will impede on the lives of anyone not having a gay marraige or sex change or heterosexual life.
I am glad that I am a Taoist. It is a shame that I have no tolerance for ignorance and stubborn blind stupidity.
