Hi Everyone!
This is my first post.  I was at a party last weekend and there was this guy that was on his soapbox ranting and raving about gays and trans people and how they are poisoning and corrupting our nations children.  My significant other was there and her and I didn't say anything as we were guests but she knew that it affected me as I stood up and walked away from the discussion.  She later told me that she wanted to throttle this guy for the way he was talking.  I told her that it wasn't worth the energy as he was just ignorant.  My significant other and my ex know that I cross dress but nobody else and I didn't think it would be appropriate to come out in that setting, let alone to some guy that we just met.  I cant stop thinking about it and it really upset us.  How do all of you handle the negativity of our clueless society?

Honestly, sweetie, I just chalk it up to "the smallest dogs bark the loudest".

The thing I've found with people who actively evangelise against people is that they're super in the closet themselves. What they're actually hating is that some people have the courage to do the things they daren't do themselves. And they project this onto people who actually do have the guts to get out there and be themselves.

Most of society don't care. It doesn't affect them. It's the extremes who make it their thing... it's more about them than it is about you, hon. As the old saying goes: "Criticism tells us more about the critic than the criticised." And with trans issues, this couldn't be more true.

How do I deal with it? I feel sorry for them. That they either are so conflicted, or have so little going on within their own lives that they have to make a point to harass other people who are doing nothing to them.
