Don't Burst My Bubble

"Homos are perverts!"
"Kill the gays and lesbians!"
"Aids and ebola will wipe out the LGBT community!"
"It's God's plan to kill the gays!"
Is it any wonder why people get so offended once someone says, "God bless you," like what happened to Cynthia Fernandez. She filed a lawsuit against the Garden State Parkway because her boss violated her First Amendment rights. Cynthia was a toll booth employee. She was told that saying "God bless you" might offend motorists. Some even said she was the friendliest toll booth worker they've ever met. But here's why people get offended. It's not even because they practice another religion, because "God bless" can mean any God. Christianity has gotten such a bad rap due to self-righteous, bible thumping idiots who seem to think everyone is going to hell but them. So people who are Christian, like my wife and I and other people who have a relationship with "GOD" are seen as "offensive" if we dare mention "God". They think we're trying to convert them or maybe the next sentence out of our mouths would be, "Do you know Jesus?" The fear of these holy rolling extremists has everyone hating religion. Religious people are usually not very spirit-filled ones. But, that's the rap we got. I feel bad for Cynthia. She was spreading love, not hate. But we can always blame Obama since he is "assumed" to be Muslim…right?
A fellow gay friend of mine (remaining nameless) had the thread regarding Attonley up on his Facebook account. He had the same views I had. Then of course, one of his friends stated, "Oh so now he wants an addadicktome?" (get it - "add a dick to me"?) Clever. But the thing is, when I looked up what that was not realizing the wording -- it described it as "man beast" in some urban dictionary. Aside from these comments, I have had a few run-ins with some lesbians friends who refuse to include a transgender woman into their circle and events. "It's a man invading our community. No!" With all the acceptance that is very much expected from the lesbian community, they give ZERO acceptance back. What happened to the "T" in LGBT? It's not only hypocritical, but it's insulting and degrading. I honestly feel this is why there are so many hate crimes. The lack of knowledge in your own community as well as others around you creates a circle of ignorance. And ignorance breeds hatred -- the fear of the unknown. You know how people hate the unknown -- hate what they haven't taken the time out to learn. Then the "hate" turns into a crime in some cases…in a lot of cases. God damn Obama.
Back to Chelsea, or Matthew I should say: the answer is NO to having your surgery prepaid. If being transgender isn't a "choice" and yet you are "choosing" to go back to being a man because of the woes of womanhood, then dig deep inside those shallow pockets and suck it up. Not only do you need to surgically reassign a penis, but now you have to have a mastectomy as well as hormonal treatments to get you back to 'scruff', which is way more than just $10 grand. It doesn't work that way. And…there's always room to blame Obamacare for an UK-based publicly funded health service.
