RE: LGBT ramble
I don't mind gays, trans-whatevers (lol, sorry); anything like that. I actually happen to enjoy learning the dynamics of peoples' sexuality. And, as seems to be a hallmark with me, the more off-center the sexuality, the more fascinating I find it to be. Big Grin

That being said, transgender/transexual/cross-dressers always make me laugh when I encounter them. Not because of who or what they are, but just because it's unexpected. I was in Walmart one night and, while headed to the bathrooms, I almost ran into a tall, well-endowed black woman as she was exiting the facilities. I smiled and said "Excuse me", to which she responded "It's no problem, hunny" in a deep, bassy black-guy voice. I almost bit my tongue off while I scurried into the bathroom trying not to laugh. I've seen her a couple of other times around town. (At least, as far as I know...not sure I'd recognize her/him out of the dress and heels. lol)

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.
Ridi, Pagliaccio, sul tuo amore infranto! Ridi del duol, che t'avvelena il cor!

meh, everyone's different.
And let's be real for a second, when is the world ever even a bit respectful of anything?

RE: LGBT ramble
earmuffs, not sure what to say. I mean, it is basic moral behavious. If you don't want to be called names that you are uncomfortable with, you don't do that to others.
A very obvious joke between friends is different of course. Like if my husband tells me to go in the kitchen where I, the woman, belong, I laugh at him for that and then I go to the kitchen as I was told.

RE: LGBT ramble
Oh my Gwynnies! You're all fucking gay. Can't stick around here, be sprouting rainbows and shit... Tongue

Yeah, I got it all figured out. I don't define myself by my sexuality, and having grown up "liberal," tend to find those who do to be cashing in on being the victim. Not here. Some of these discussions are meant to be insider and therapeutic, but...

Well, I just ain't gay. Undecided

If random people calling you anything hurts your feelings, you might be overly sensitive.

It really isn't about the person who gets offended, though, is it? It is about people who feel the need to call others names. But it's their problem and their ugly, insecure little selves that are being revealed, not the person at whom the offence is hurled.

which is all well and good in theory, but you can't control other people and their actions you can only control how you react to it.
