In defense of GLAAD they were probably just trying to appease certain militant lesbian transgender activists by insisting that transgender was the correct terminology and transsexual was not because one would not like to leave anyone behind particularly when dealing with a cross dressing ex Navy individual masquerading as a transsexual under the guise of the transgender banner. I dare any transsexual to call certain transgender activists cross-dressers or transvestites. They will tell you immediately they are as transsexual as you are and throw in the elitist tag in an attempt. They will abandon the dogma of the transgender umbrella faster than any rat off any sinking ship. Think of a certain transgender activist that wants to run for Us Congress in Arizona. She dropped Transgender like it carried bed bugs.
These clowns actually have media guides demanding the media use the term transgender instead of transsexual and what pronouns to use for people. Do you want to know how bad it has become? If someone says I am transgender we MUST believe them and are required by our friends (sic) at GLAAD and the GLBT (only the T there) to use the pronoun nacceptable to the gender expression desired by the individual in question. I wonder if that meant the US Airways employees that encountered the nutcase transvestite riding planes in a bra, panties, garter-belt, hose and heels were required to use she and her for HIM.
Now our friend(sic) Calie of T-Central is self described as the following from his profile:
I'm trans, non-transitioning, MtF, currently living in California, although I have lived many other places. I'm happily married. I love people, and enjoy meeting folks from around the world.
Yet according to nthe GLBT or GLAAD guides I would be required to use she or her when discussing him. Am I missing something here? Lives as a man; has not transitioned; but he is trans or excuse me transgender. I wonder how overjoyed Calie or is it Carl, Calvin, or Fred, in the real world, would like if someone met him in public and started saying things like "hey girl" how are you plus only used female pronouns for him. I wonder when Calie and Anne met, I was told they did, if Anne used female pronouns for him in the only form he knows which is male? Awkward!!!
These lunatics have finally made me laugh. Actually I laughed after I cried because the story was about a post operative transsexual that was murdered and described by the coroner as a post-operative transgender. It is not the first time I have read or heard of this usage but it really irked me primarily because it diminished this beautiful young black girl that had been viciously murdered because she was born transsexual not transgender.
Maybe it is a macabre sense of humor but excluding this beautiful child what exactly is a post operative transgender.
- a transvestite that had an appendectomy?
- a cross-dresser that needed surgery for a gall bladder condition?
- a gender queer individual that had corns surgically removed?
- a gender variant individual that had heart surgery?
- a transvestite that had sex reassignment surgery? Nope they don't do that do they?
- a cross-dresser that had sex reassignment surgery? Nope they don't do that do they?
- a gender variant that had sex reassignment surgery? Nope they don't do that do they?
Transsexuals want to be accepted by society in our correct sex first and foremost while the rest under transgender want to role play when and if they feel like it. When they role play as women they want to be treated as women but when they work as men they want the higher pay men receive. They want to change the quote, you can't have your cake and eat it to", and have the cake and gorge on it with all the benefits of either gender at the time and place of their choosing. It is your typical male power play but come on guys not even you assholes believe post operative transgender is correct or do you???
