“Gay does not equal trans.”

“Totally agree. I'm trans and I've experienced lot of anti-trans comments from gay people.”

“You can add trans doesn't necessarily mean property of or part of the LGBT either!!!”

ShedTheLight on Nov 22, 2013 at 00:21:35

“Of course it doesn't "equal" trans. But the community and the straight allies like us self label as LGBT. It's all related. So yeah, it's pretty safe to assume if she supports the G community that she also supports the LBT community as well.”

“immortality? What on Earth are you talking about? And if you show up to work the next day a different gender how can you NOT address that?

People who are transgendered are faultless, and have been around as long as people have.

You're right. We're all going to die someday. So why should a person spend that time in a form that is terrible to them?”

Ady0914 on Jul 18, 2013 at 02:33:13

“you are the one who acted like to 'die' was a choice...if you could choose not to die ...that would be immortality.
by your reasoning somebody who was born left-handed when they desired to be right-handed, should be agonizingly miserable their whole life unless they hurry up and get their body mutilated, get some quack to saw off both arms and re-attach them on the opposite sides of their sholders???”

“Ady, You have to understand that there are some people who have 3 options in life:

1.) Transition
2.) Live the rest of their lives unhappily
3.) Die.

This theory is supported my the medical community in it's entirety. These things separate gender identity disorder from tattoos and piercings. You DO have a right to be disgusted, but you DON'T have a right to discriminate based on that disgust. Besides, there are plenty of born women who will never have a lot of the traits you mentioned. Guess they're no women either?”

Ady0914 on Jul 15, 2013 at 15:34:36

“nope i dont 'have ' to do anything but pay taxes and die.

but mutilating your body does not guarantee happiness, and you centainly dont get immortality from a 'sex change'...you're still gonna die someday! so how is that an option? in fact seems most of the changlings on here are still quite unhappy and still finding plenty to complain about. of course the medical community is all for it...big bucks for all those un-neccesary treatments....but they aren't supporting you...you are supporting them unless there's some quack out there that paid you to let him/her practice on you til they figured out how to make a penis resemble a vagina somewhat, or visa-versa.
thats pretty low comparing a woman born sterile through no fault of her own to a "self -multilated, fantasy driven, unable to function in society unless everybody gives them respect that they never earned " person .
the article person claims to have been fired for telling boss about transgender thing...so dress as you want to be known and get another job and keep your "privates" business private. problem solved...no need for more laws and lawsuits! no need for others to "have' to accept your difference, if you dont go around blatting about it to boss, co-workers, customers.”

“It does sometimes feel like African Americans get a disproportionate amount of negative coverage in some circumstances. BUT:

1.) This is not a story about Chris Brown. This is humor at Chris Brown's expense. It's making fun of his reputation, not accusing him of anything.
2.) When it comes to "bringing down black people," I would find fault with Chris Brown. He could have bounced back from the Rihanna thing, but he refuses to learn those lessons.
3.) Huffingtonpost has been heavily criticized for being PRO Obama, not the reverse.”

“As a black person, I hate when black people eat watermelon. Sure it's delicious, but one should forego its harmless deliciousness because of what other people might think.

See how silly that logic is? Instead of being against makeup long hair for women, how about being for the right of EVERYONE regardless of gender to have long hair and wear makeup. Everyone wants to be attractive, and who are we to say who's doing it wrong?”

“Strictly speaking Rap is much older than that..... it was formed in its original form in Africa. A very simplistic basic chanting to a rhythm, with or without music.......... no technical expertize other than being able to keep a drum rhythm.”

“O.k., how long are we going to keep doing this? I guess I have to explain some basic concepts to you:

There are actions that a person can take that are considered by a court of law to be an unlawful action taken on behalf of the company as a whole. For example:

The famous McDonald's hot coffee lawsuit. It was decided that McDonald's not the lone employee, was in the wrong. McDonald's had to pay damages.

You can send me a dozen links of people caught doing something wrong, but I have yet to see a single thing that indicates that Acorn has been held accountable by a court of law, or any evidence of systemic corruption within the area.

Oh, and you can't really be smug until AFTER you've proven your point.”

“Now, show me where in a court of law the Acorn organization has been found guilty of ANYTHING. Anything at all? All around the country hundreds, maybe even thousands of people who happen to work at McDonald's get busted at convicted of crimes. No one is suggesting that McDonald's is a criminal organization full of larceny.

And call me crazy, but somehow I doubt a website called "Rottenacorn" has an objective spin on things.”

“No, they haven't. Every single investigation into Acorn by any sort of authority has come out in their favor. Acorn died out of political pressure, not being caught doing anything wrong. There was a documented case of an Acorn worker being lazy/shady with voter registration, and we know this because Acorn turned this person in.

Acorn was found guilty of nothing. Fact-check me.”
