LGBT Workshop


I went to an LGBT Workshop last night. It was quite interesting. We mostly discussed correct terminology, which was interesting, and how best to deal with transgender people. It was mostly about what pronouns to use  and how to treat transgender people by their gender identity. It was interesting but I don’t think I learned anything earth shattering.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    I’m a 65 year old female to male transgender who is gay as a male. I transitioned first in 1982 and I am fed up to the gills with trannies and their PC victim culture. I don’t give a fat rodent’s patootie about pronouns and I never did. I told people to call me what came naturally–if they saw a male, he, if a female, she. I also didn’t care if old friends and family called me Ellen not Chris. We transpeople are a tiny sliver minority of American culture yet a few loudmouths with an entitled snotty attitude asking for crazy things like men who don’t pass yet in toilets with little girls have created a backlash of resentment. I would not want to be telling people I’m trans or transitioning now. No one in 1982 called me a freak–they were interested and compassionate and because *I* respected them they respected me. This is all typical of Millenials in general. They want want want but they have nothing to give to society beyond whining and self-melodramatizing. They ought to be called the GimME generation.
