GenderTrender Unmoderated

Wow! Redhester, I’m going to have trouble adding anything to that, but when I initially read the blog I basically came up with a list of words, and these apply to everyone, whichever side of the fence they sit.

Tolerance (of others)

Patience

Compassion

Not jumping to conclusions ie listening without prejudging

Being open to change your opinion. This is possibly the hardest thing for any of us to do.

Respect – this is a 2 way street. How can anyone expect to be respected, if they don’t respect others.

Be a positive example to others.

Obviously, someone has to take the moral high ground on this one, and if we say “I’ll do this, but you have to do this first” isn’t the way to do it.

I’m sure there’s something I’ve missed out, but I can’t think of anything else right now.

Dumb Ass Comment of the Week Award Winner: Third Arm Edition

I get that you don’t think trans surgeries should happen. What I don’t get, is why you seem to be against (as a lot of Americans seem to be ), against an NHS style healthcare system. You pay taxes for an army to protect you, a fire service to put out fires, and police to arrest bad guys, but when it comes to the most important thing, your health, you’d rather have a private health care system. This means that some simply can’t afford it (without going into the reasons why as no doubt there will be all kinds of reasons, legitimate and otherwise ). Yes, if you want cosmetic surgery to “look better”, I get that that’s not medically necessary. If you’ve been in an accident though, it could be considered so.

We treasure the NHS in the UK, even for all it’s faults, so in just can’t get my head around not having something like it.

My faith in humanity restored

My faith in humanity has been restored! Halleluiah! Not by the video, but by the majority of the commenters essentially telling this bigoted old bastard to go suck a dick.
