I'm disgusted with people atm.
« on: April 18, 2007, 01:49:15 AM »
I'll make this really short. I feel like screaming though.

Stuff is really rocky with my boyfriend right now. I was complaining about it with some gay aquaintances of mine and just chatting and stuff about it, and at least 3 different people said, "Well, you shouldn't have dated a transsexual guy in the first place."


I could go into a big rant right here about how bodies are more important than the actual person to the majority of gay men but I won't. I don't have to. They all know it. And the ones that would turn down someone sweet, funny, interesting, intelligent, etc. because he's trans know exactly who they are.

People need to stop being so fucking superficial and get on with fucking life.

Fucking hell.

I'd like to take this moment to challenge you all to stop and consider why you're dating your current partner if you have one or what you want in a partner if you don't have one. Then try and figure out how much of it is meaningless bullshit that will never amount to a solid relationship in the end. Seriously. Consider this today's lesson or something like that.

End rant.

Gee, Jaser, friends can be such shits sometimes.  I just posted that in another thread...

I'm sorry your relationship is rocky at the moment and hope that's resolved to your mutual satisfaction soon.

As long as consenting adults (you're included even if technically you don't meet some bureaucratic requirement) are happy doing what they do with each other, on whatever levels they interact, screw the rest of the world.  The ignorance and prejudice against transgendered people is truly one of the last socially acceptable prejudices, even worse than that acceptable in too many places against gay men and women.  It's like a prejudice some gay men hold about lesbians, the very thought of two women sexually engaging makes them almost sick.  Totally irrational but I know several men who think scarily alike on the issue of bumping pussy -- that phrase alone makes them swoon, in a totally manly, masculine manner, of course.

I don't understand this remaining form of legitimized hate but I don't understand a hell of a lot about what makes humans do what we do, like killing 32 people on a campus somewhere in Virginia.   

Whether you and your bf stay together I advise you to seek more enlightened friends.  They are out there, I know!  And there is an old saying that goes "with friends like you... "   Either try to educate them (one by one might not be bad but they're your friends) or decide whether good people who still hold hatred against other classes of people are worth having as friends.  It's a personal decision, though.  I'm friends with racists (of several ethnicities), religious bigots, misogynists, misanthropes (i.e., I'm friends with myself), even a few Republicans, but can see something better than what they display to the world.

Long story short I just don't understand how a marginalized, abused group can marginalize and abuse another group. WTF.
