It seems to me that in african/carribean race ( especially the young )there is a lot of prejudice against Trans people. I know this to be true as my wife is african/carribean decent. I know also that young white people are more accepting of LGBT. I hang around with a lot of " socially/financially poor " people and have friends and to me they value friendship and loyalty over what's between you legs. But that is only my limited experience so far.
Maccy D's is a HUGE corporation, I bet you anything that there is a tiny clause kicking around there somewhere. This will damage McDonalds and I can almost hear the PR gurus scribbling their ideas down as how to do as much damage control as possible. I think a nice out of court settlement is on it's way out to this girl ( which she obviously deserves ) and secondly I can imagine a huge LGBT / Black loved up TV ad campaign going on very soon, where every colour and sexual orientation is sitting around a table enjoying a maccy d and laughing and joking with each other as if they are in an episode of different strokes or something.
I've also noticed that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton haven't crawled out from their desks to condemn this attack, but hey ho what do I know?
You guys in the USA will have to keep us up to date on that one to see if I was right, but I expect I will be.
Well, since I came out and started to get look in to who I am and surfing the web, I've noticed more and more hate in America towards LGBT, especially Trans people, which has really surprised me. I thought the UK was WAY behind you guys/girls, but apparently not, it seems we are way ahead of you, which totally surprised me. But, I'll hold off championing my country too much as with the Consevative party in power now, which are a bunch of bible bashing, right wing, capitalists, I think LGBT issues aren't going to get the attention they have received recently.
Addition -- I mean all of us transgirls know, that when we start HRT some if not all of us are unable to have/ or takes us much longer to get and maintain an erection ( for post op girls this obviously doesn't count ), so how the hell did this transgirl pose a sexual threat to any genetic girl anyway, I mean if she'd been out and about in New York then one must presume that she is quite a bit on her way through her transition.
I don't believe the USA, my god guys/girls how can you claim to be the land of the free, I'm not trying to start a flame war or anything like that, but I was told from a small child that America was amazing and was the land of the free,
now t's beginning to look like the land of the right wing conservative nazi party, wtf happened to your country guys?
