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.

"In the poem, Smith invites listeners into a private conversation between his former female self and the man he has now grown to be. He poignantly discusses feelings of not wanting to live past 11 years old, to which his audience has responded with gratitude and heartbreak."  --advocate.com

You know something - our thoughts are a lot alike, just coming from a different direction.  The issue is we can never separate the what we were, from the who we are.  We can only build or grow on it. I just wish gender did not exist.  I love to wear dresses so why should I have fear when I wish to wear them.  I do crave acceptance but it may be impossible to ask or expect.  The very system that provides order also represses.  Dawn

Was deeply moved by Mitch's powerful poem.  Related to it even though I am a cisgender woman in that in the aging process, I am a very different person, physically and emotionally, than the person I was even ten years ago, and especially compared to my adolescent self.  Mitch is a handsome man, and his eyes remind me of John F. Kennedy.
