These terrorists are now boasting, "The U.S. is next on their agenda!"
I think it is somewhat normal for children to "explore" their physical makeup and the differences between them. I don't feel, if they have, they are prone to be gay. I have been a fence sitter about whether being homosexual is by nature (genes) or by personal choice. I'm divided because I have known gays who seem "environmentally gay" and also gays who "just knew" from a young age, they were different.
My step-brother was a closeted gay, for years. After getting beat up by some anti-gay punks in a Hollywood alley, he called mom and asked us for help to commit himself, hoping to find a way of accepting (and coming to terms) with his own lifestyle. Growing up, one of the things I loved the most about Larry was his musical talent. He played the most beautiful piano; he would play show tunes, and we would sing together. He is gone now; I miss that part of him.
The entire gay/homosexual community is much more diverse than just someone with a preference for a committed relationship with someone of their own sex. With any controversial subject the majority of those adamantly 'against' an issue, whatever the subject matter, is usually due to ignorance. Education is key, in order to make a stance, one way or the other. It seems it's also easier to be "anti" anything, if you are uneducated, unexposed, or uninterested. And then there are those who just want to wreak havoc on the world, no matter, and just because "they can".
As for this husband who returned his wife's 'Glamour Woman of the Year' award after learning they have chosen to honor Caitlyn Jenner this year, I applaud him. Not because Bruce wants to be Caitlyn, but because he is standing on his laurels and expressing his stand on the matter. I have to say, I agree with him.
So many people want to be supportive of him/her; good for all of them. First of all, who's made the decision to appointed @Caitlyn_Jenner the "icon" now, for the entire transgender community, in general? I am assuming that those transgenders who are living on the streets, those who have been written off by their own families, and those who exist and strive to be safe in life don't have, or come from wealthy backgrounds. @Caitlyn_Jenner has no clue. He can't even begin to empathize with most of them because he can afford anything he wants or needs, to fulfill his desire to feel like a woman, including surgical gender reassignment.
Speaking of gender reassignment, no matter what Bruce does, how can he possibly ever know how it feels to 'be a woman', without the proper plumbing. Initially, I read where he wasn't even thinking about that. Now I am reading that he/she may do it. If he doesn't plan to do gender reassignment surgery, then I would say he's just a 'cross dresser', with a female name. And, oh yeah, boobs!
I guess it's nice that Jenner has good intentions. My fear is that he's made this issue so much on the front pages it will cause more tension and trouble for those who are living 'under the radar' for so long. Maybe they don't want to be 'exposed' and 'led' by the 'new trans on the block', so to speak!
