With something like 95% of respondants reporting between "mostly and highly" agree, I must be the redneck in the group. You guessed it. Mine is the only "slightly disagree" vote to date.
A recent US investigation into discrimination and abuse suffered by the TG community, reported figures in excess of 50% in a majority of the subsections the report covered. However the result of this poll has my head spinning.
In my daily travels, I certainly couldn't see "most to highly agree" result happening to me, with the people I come in contact with. I would have to say, that roughly between 4 to 8% max. of the people I come directly in contact with on a daily basis, may, have some level of suspicion as to my authenticity, with, what I perceive to vary between very mild to perhaps, I'm not authentic.
Mine you, I have no idea on the perception of those that I don't come directly in contact with, who may be able to spot a TG from 50 paces.
Now moving my head closer to the chopping block, I'm tending to think such a high result from this poll may constitute a perception abberation or an attitudinal position from those that engaged in the poll. (You may now bring down the axe)
Would anyone care to comment before I lose consciousness and bleed to death. I'd hate this to be all in vain. You have to remember, you are dealing with a "glass overflowing" girl here. None of this half full half empty nonsense.
With love and respect
