And no frogs fell from the sky, no plague of locusts, society didn't collapse....it's almost as if tolerance and acceptance are a good thing, crazy I know.

The bluest skies I've ever seen are in Seattle.

Trans Pride parade, eh?

Wow, I know Seattlites were proud of their mass transit system what with their fancy monorail and all but I never thought they'd go so far as to throw a parade for it.

*reads article*

Ohhhh. That kind of trans. Well, yeah, that makes more sense actually.

Good on 'em.

I'd ask why they need to go so far (in regards to the surgery as opposed to just dealing with the hand they were dealt) but I did that in another thread and never got a good answer beyond "UR A BIGOT ND HOMOPHOBE LOLOLOL!" so I guess I'll just say...

As the gay marriage battle winds down, this will be the new fight for rights and tolerance.
And I don't mean that in a bad way or anything, this country and much of the world still has a burning hatred for the transgendered.

Fark especially is a good example. People have begrudgingly accepted gays, but these threads are full of shiatheads.

Somebody went overboard on the Photoshop with those pictures; they look like mannequins. Especially the fourth one.

Not to threadjack, but good on them for being proud and marching. From my understanding, trans* people get a lot of flak (possibly more than any other non-heterosexual groups) so it's nice to see them unashamedly celebrating who they are.

Still, at some point we will have to separate the legitimately transgendered from the mentally ill. One side is being helped (those who need acceptance and support in their correct transition), but those who are actually just crazy are being severely neglected.

I forgot the Pride thingy was today and was surprised at how congested my neighborhood was. One end of Broadway is closed for 6 blocks for Pride - and at the other end the Pike Street corridor is blocked from Broadway to 12th for the Cap Hill Block Party. My 'hood is packed with people! And it is a gorgeous 87 degrees too. Gotta love Seattle on days like this!

Well, I'm not an authority on this (lowest difficulty setting and an admittedly incomplete understanding of the subject), but I don't think all trans* people view the surgery the same way. Some trans* people are happy to just identify as the other gender without wanting to go through the surgery at all, and they're okay with being a man that happens to have a vagina or a woman who happens to have a penis. For those that want the surgery, I think it's more to do with wanting a body that physically matches their mental gender, so they choose to go through the counselling, hormones, surgery and all that.

So I guess it's more down to the individual trans* person; some are okay with how they are, others would appreciate the correction - asking the dealer for replacement cards instead of trying to use the hand they have, to clumsily continue the poker analogy.

You did very well. I am in the catagory of "not wanting the surgery". I don't feel the NEED to have the surgery to feel like a dude even though I ID as a dude. and you are right: Each trans person is different. So yeah, you kick ass and all :) Thanks :)
