Grrrrrrrr..... [Sep. 11th, 2009|10:34 am]
[Tags|, , ]

If you want a pre-transition tranny to feel uncomfortable, just post this on a chatroom in work:

(10:25:35) OldMan: is she/he? - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/athletics/8249948.stm

Man, the fucking testosterone is almost tangible in work today. And Jesus Haych Christ, can't we just leave that woman to her goddamn career. Or at the very least not make stupid comments like that.

I feel so sorry for her, having this very personal matter played out in front of the whole world. It's ridiculous, she's just an 18 year old kid...

This pissed me off so much - aside from the fact that none of the other athletes complained until she came first. Smack of ignorance and sore loserism to me.
Poor girl she's only 18 and to have it played out in the media like that. The olympic committee should've stepped in and handled this better

True, sorry. I was overpersonalising somewhat.

Basically, the pre-transition bit was mainly because I'm not out at work, and present as male there. So, yeah. Basically, I could try taking them to task on it, but doing that would not be the ideal way to out myself, especially as the guy who said it is one of the longest-standing, and loudest, people in the place.

Don't be sorry, I was trying to validate your uncomfortableness because that sucks.

I don't know if you need to come out to call them on it, but I can see why you would just want to avoid the whole thing, which is probably what I would do also.
