I mean, isn't that the whole idea? I mean, what did the transgender extremists think would happen when they forcibly joined LGB to T? Did they think that the Religious Right wouldn't assume that "transgender" was just another form of gay?
Oh, I know the idea is supposed to be something about "sexual minorities," which is why some try to add even more letters. Like "I" for intersexed, and two "Q's" for queer and questioning. And some want to add another "T" for transsexual. And an "A" for asexual, an "O" for omnisexual, and a "P" for pansexual. I can think of a few other "sexual minorities that would not be so welcome, so that idea sort of falls apart quickly.
But back to the point. What did Sandeen think was going to happen when he dressed up in Navy drag and chained himself to the White House fence in support of repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Even he is not so extremist that he thinks that trying to get "transgender people" able to serve openly is a valid cause. He was there is support of gays, lesbians and bisexuals. That sort of makes it more likely that he will be perceived as a gay male by many.
And then he has the audacity to wonder why people with HBS want no part of transgender? We simply want to live our lives as women. Not as men who become women, not as women who used to be women, and certainly not perceived as gay men who just got carried away. But that is exactly how the transgender movement causes us to be perceived.

Just so there is no confusion, and to make sure that certain gender fascists cannot make false claims, I want to make clear my policy concerning comments. The only rule, and it is a hard and fast one, is "NO INVASIONS OF PRIVACY!" That is, if you post information about me, such as my name, or other private information, your post will not see the light of day. After having a couple of rather nasty trolls try to get around this, I have had to do something I really dislike. Because Blogger does not allow me to block individuals, I now have to approve all comments. But, if your comment does not violate the one rule, it will be approved. So please, don't go running to someone and claim you were censored...especially someone with an established history of censoring posts to prevent actually having to defend his silliness...
