    As a mother of a transgender daughter, please understand I will never forget your sister, I am an advocate for the LGBTQ persons. Transgender seem to be targets, especially transgender black women. I don't understand it and cry with each death. Being transgender is a simple concept, a transgender women is a woman. A transgender man is a man. Human beings born in a body they don't belong in. I will advocate for all transgender person for the rest of my days, you are a courageous young women and continue to speak out. We have so much work to do. Each state has different laws pertaining to changing your gender marker on your birth certificate. A simple change made illegal or difficult to do because of old laws. It is one I am fighting for. My condolences to you and your family! Hugs, sweet girl!!

    If people want to say that they are trans that’s their business. I say do what makes u happy. That’s not the the problem. The problem, is when trans people say that I must accept their fantasy. That I have to ignore science and teach my children that women can be men and men can become women. It’s not true. It’s make believe. All the hormone therapy in the world is just makeup to help and individual fake it and live the life they want to. Which is fine, it’s their choice. But a full grown man still has the same muscle and bone structure of a man, and that won’t change. He can call himself a woman and that’s fine, but he’s not really a women and forcing me to believe in the fairly tale is wrong. They don’t want tolerance. I’m already tolerant of it. They want me to change my views completely and agree. That’s really no different then telling someone they have to change their religion to make you happy. Tolerance is what we need. But it stops there.

    James Johnson I truly feel sorry for your ignorance. I am sure you believe that transgenders are mentally ill which they are not but to be supportive of DJT ( thats Trump if you don’t get the initials) and actually thinking that the problem is not his but the Democrats leads me to believe that you aren’t really watching what is going on in our country at all but have your mantra that Trump more than likely planted in your head and you’re sticking to it no matter what. Trump would praise you for it but you better never disagree with anything he says cause you’d be banished from his “kingdom “ in a minute. Good luck to you.

    No a transgender is a mental ill person. You are either a male or female plain and simple
