Those of us born transsexual are fueled by both the pain that is inherent in being transsexual and the desire to make ourselves complete. Those of us born transsexual want to be cured while everyone else under the transgender banner wants to be accepted as is. Big difference, really big difference.
It is traumatic being transsexual and the happiest moment is when you are no longer transsexual which occurs after surgery. For all purposes we are accepted in our correct sex whether most want to believe it or not. There is no joy in being born transsexual. Simply put transvestites and cross-dressers enjoy what they do. Read any of their blogs. It is all about the thrill and joy of going out en femme for the first time, sneaking into the ladies room for the first time, meeting with other transvestites for a "girls" night out, the thrill and joy of traveling en femme, and the thrill at seeing someone cross-dress on television or in the movies.
We live with the pain of our medical condition and they enjoy their fetish or pass-time yet we are supposed to tolerate and accept them as women on their whimsical days en femme but be subservient to them when they are their normal male selves. We live with the pain of just being wrong until we survive our surgery while they get their jollies and thrills pretending they are girls for the afternoon or evening. We desperately want to be complete women and while pretend is their mantra.
We have the pain of feeling wrong and they have the feeling of being right just because they put on a dress. Those of us born transsexual want nothing other than being accepted as women or men. While the process is going on some protection is needed but as a noted conservative said when opposing the Massachusetts bill.
State Representative Mark Lombardo (R-Billerica), an opponent of the bill, pointed out on the Howie Carr radio show that "transgender" does not include transsexuals who have gone through surgery; these people are legally considered to be their new sex. Rather, transgendered individuals "identify" with a gender other than the sex that was "assigned...usually at birth and based on their genitals"Transgender civil rights come to Massachusetts
The simple comment that transsexuals that have had surgery are not part of the transgender crowd because we are accepted legally as our new sex should have been lauded but then that does not fit the transgender rights movement because it has never been about transsexuals. It has always been about the transvestite majority. They use the needs for pre-operative transsexuals for some form of protection in an attempt to include themselves. The problem is the transgender want permanent rights as a special case under the law.
I just wanted to be a girl and I was and am willing to take my chances as a woman. Today in the world of political correctness, where score is not kept in children's games so as not to offend the losers, we find the transgender wanting permanent status as a persecuted minority who need protection under the law. They demand civil rights when in all honesty their actions are anything but civil and they violate the civil rights of the women they like to pretend to be but then this is really all about men and their insatiable need to get whatever they want regardless of whose civil rights are dishonored.
The transgender crowd is blind to the simple fact they offend women and deny them their civil right to be with women when they pee or try on cloths. I wonder if they would let us into that good old boy club they keep us women out of? Not going to happen. Men take but they very rarely give back.
Women lose civil rights so a man in a dress can have his "civil right" to pretend he is a she whenever they want. But as someone said "I enjoy playing a girl but I sure do not want to be one". Why is that?
