Then what does one do with the fundamental Christian transgendered brothers and sisters? They may not agree on every issue but are they seen as allies or enemies? Do they get treated with the same respect that others want to be treated with? Are they really accepted with the same open arms or are they thrown to the wolfs? If they are seen as being worthy of contempt,ridicule and mocking,that comes from the other side is that not the same type of hypocrisy?
Maybe just maybe because they are on the inside so others can see that it could be their father,mother,brother,sister,son,daughter,coworker or friend,perhaps then they can see that we are human also. Can one really expect if they are shoved to the side,treated with contempt,mocked,and ridiculed that they would even want to try to change things because they get it from both sides and what is the point for them to keep trying? Pile it on enough and they will come to the point of rejecting both sides and have contempt for both,and just may end up being enemies of both.
They to need to hear that they are accepted. Not that they are agreed with. It's a fine line,no doubt about it. They may need to hear it more so,than any others because they are in amongst the lion's den,and hear it far more often than those on the outside,and they need to be lifted up by those on the outside. Far too often they will be walking alone.
Maybe just maybe if they were encouraged to keep going in a very tough environment,through staying in that situation some good could come from it. Perhaps they can make some small changes, it won't change it all and that can not be expected.
Does it ever occur to us that some of them may be called to stay there to bring about some changes in their treatment of us? How many of us would really want to do it,standing in the line of fire,being on the front lines? And then to be shot at from behind? Does this somehow sound like a good plan or does it sound like a suicide mission? Are they nursed back to health so they can go on or are they left to bleed to death?
Does it really make any sense to take the few allies that are on the inside trying to affect some change,and to cast them away? Doesn't most change come from the inside?
