WarrenG : (27 October 2014 - 07:54 PM) Loved this! Hater and homophobic got shoved down where he belongs for causing trouble and being a close minded baboon at a national airport. The man was accused of being a "***" by the homophobic buffoon just because he had a pink shirt on. Ridiculous! Glad to see those around them jump to his defense and protect the man in the (rather adorable) pink shirt ^_^ Made me smile

MonicaPz : (23 October 2014 - 08:00 AM) Dawn, I look at almost everyone's photos, and comment, if I can say something nice.  Do give feedback.  Love your photos!
UsernameOpti... : (23 October 2014 - 07:54 AM) There are four ways to tell if someone has looked at a members photo album(s): 1.  They leave a comment;  2. They clik the "like" button;  3.  They rate the image;  4. You can see the number of "views" on each image.  Except for when someone leaves a comment, there is no way to know which members have viewed any one album or image.

Leaders of any movement are usually treated harshly or more harsh than the others.  Not sure what 'mistreatment' means in this instance.  Hopefully, the lawyers will be able to keep it civil.  I think that transgender people offend become the centre of major issues like this because their life can't be any worse than it is now.  They don't fear punishment because their whole life seems a punishment and so they get involved in order to make life better for themselves and the rest of us who live similar lives.

Bonnie, many transgender people who have been arrested have been humiliated, called names, propositioned for sex, beaten and other vile acts. It was a fear of mine when I went down there. I'm in New York.  One thing I have vowed is that I will NOT be humiliated by anyone.
