    Thank you for this comment. I agree that we all have the right to share our opinions. I am horrified by Linda Harvey and her hatefulness. But I would be a hypocrite if I didn’t at least try to understand her view. I feel that she and many others are simply afraid of difference…in any form. Its a shame and loss for them… I know that I am constantly enriched by the diversity around me. Of course some people don’t have the opportunity to experience diversity in a safe environment where they can learn that there is more that connects us than separates. Having said that I am not sure if I met ms harvy that I would feel any kinship…

    UGH. What an ultra-maroon. Since we know animals engage in homosexuality (check bonobo chimps)it’s NOT unnatural. And since Jesus himself did not speak ill of gays, it is NOT unChristian. She needs to pull her head out of her arse.

      didn’t Jesus say something about loving thy neighbor like thy self? guees that means if you hate your fellow man so much you must hate yourself too.

    So if this stupid bitch is in the emergency room she should have a bracelet that says if you are gay do not treat this idiot. And hopefully there won’t be a straight doctor in sight on that day.

    Poor misguided old bat. She needs to broaden her horizons a little and maybe get a gay friend. She may actually find her life enriched.

    I think this crazy bitch needs to be bullied until she winds up in the hospital then she can tell us why anti bullying laws are bad!

    The Right has a very clear record of doubling down any time they’re caught in a lie.

    Just look at Herman Cain with his current troubles. He’s doubled and tripled down despite the fact that there is evidence of the contrary.

    “People like Harvey should be the ones hiding who they really are.” Wrong. I disapprove of this woman’s methods, of her lying, of her manipulation of data but no one should have to hide who they really are. Freedom of speech means freedom of all speech, including that which you disagree with. I personally am transgendered and a lesbian, I know what it’s like to be hated and have to hide who I am. I will have none of it, for anyone. She can say what she wants I just ask that she doesn’t impose it upon the rest of us.

    …and yes I realize that’s exactly what she’s trying to do.

    If I could stop her from doing so, then I would, however these are her opinions.

    I just want to stop the hate, all hate, from all sides.

      Please pardon my insensitivity, but as I have no one IRL who’s in your situation to ask, I’m intensely curious about the following:

      Since you’re transgendered and a lesbian, I take that to mean you felt like you were a man trapped in a woman’s body who is attracted to women, in which case you are (at heart), a man attracted to women. Wouldn’t that make you heterosexual, in the literal sense, at the soul level?

      Conversely, if you were a woman trapped in man’s body who is attracted to women, you were attracted to women when you had a penis, and are therefore physically a heterosexual.

      I don’t understand the religious right’s obsession with how transgender identification is sinful, seeing how in both scenarios, all transgendered people are straight.

      I hope I didn’t offend you by being too forward, but please correct me if I’m wrong.

        No I don’t mind questions as long as they are respectful and asked because of true curiosity, trans people are rare so I believe it is a responsibility of mine to inform those who are curious about the situation (goodness knows I would probably be quite curious as well if not trans myself).

        In answer to your questions though: gender identity (being male or female) is separated from sexual orientation. Whatever my physical body dictates I believe myself to be a woman at ‘soul level’ as it were. It is who I am, I was miserable trying to pretend to be male for the first part of my life. Gay or straight, I was, and am, female.

        That being said I still am attracted to females. Genetic women can be attracted to females just as genetic men can be attracted to females. There are some who believe me to be a straight man, there are some who say I cannot be transgendered since I am a lesbian. Such statements seem to imply, by corralary (sp?), that a gay man would want to be a woman and a gay woman would want to be a man.

        I apologize, I’m probably rambling. In a nutshell I was born male but feel I am female. This does not effect who I am attracted to. I have no desire to interact with woman as a man, the idea disgusts me, but I desire to interact with them as a woman. Beleive me, as one who has seen both sides, the dynamics of the two situations are vastly different.

        I hope this answers some questions and isn’t too rambly.
