Susan Stanton’s lonely transition

In a article posted on Tampa Bay.com December 31, 2007 Susan stanton laments that here reception by the LGBT community has been less than welcoming.

“Susan has met hundreds of other people like her. She was among the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people lobbying for a law that would make it illegal for others to discriminate against them.
But Susan has said all along that she’s not like other transgender people. She feels uncomfortable even looking at some, “like I’m seeing a bunch of men in dresses.”
Eventually, she decided it was too early for transgender people to be federally protected. People need more time, more education, she says. “The transgender groups boo me, now, when I speak. Isn’t that ironic?
“But I don’t blame the human rights groups from separating the transgender people from the protected groups. Most Americans aren’t ready for us yet,” Susan says. Transgender people need to be able to prove they’re still viable workers — especially in the mainstream.
“The biggest issue against the federal legislation is that politicians think the ladies’ rooms will be invaded by guys in drag,” Susan says, “instead of someone like me”

News flash Susan. You think like a bigot in a dress, and I as a hard working transgender woman , please note, WORKING, American do not need your approval .

So if you decide that out of default, becuse everyone else is a man in a dress, you parade before the media with HRC’s blood money in hand, you have made your life just that more lonesome.

We reject you and anyone other bigots regardless
