On Transgender Acceptance

  • Homosexuals stayed in the closet as a way of hiding who and what they were.  Homosexuality is finally finding voice and a place in our society, after years of non-acceptance and ridicule, and they still have a good distance to travel.  So, who's in the closet now?  It would seem transgender is the new taboo for "normal" society, and acceptance might be a harder battle to win than that of simply being gay.  This would seem fairly easy to understand when you consider someone hiding their transgender from a prospective lover or mate.  When it comes to love, acceptance is always easier when one is upfront and honest.  The relationship may go south because of the revelation, but at least there might be respect, and perhaps even acceptance, simply due to the honesty.
