Transgender Equality

Before I begin this blog I would like to say that this blog post is in no way intended to offend anyone of any gender. This entry was written as an outlet to discuss the topic of transgender people and poses questions that deal with equal rights for transgender people.

I have had some serious issues with some of the people here and when it escalated to its highest peak I almost lost complete control. Had I not been saved I would have laid down my religion (my pastor doesn’t like that quote lol) and most likely I would have been taken out of the place in handcuffs.
