Green Room - Week 35 - Day 4

There were some comments in yesterday's Green Room that really got me thinking about how folks don't really know each other that well this season. That made me a bit sad, so I was trying to think of something that I could reveal about *myself* that might help break the ice.

There *is* something. Something that I think you should know about me.

I need to get something off my chest, that isn't going to be easy for a lot of people to hear.

I know it's "not PC" and, especially on the internet, I'm going to get a lot of shit for this. But I think it's time for those of us who have strong opinions about things speak up, even if they are shouted back down.

I am severely "transphobic".

That's not the word I would use. I'd say "normal". But it's the internet, so that's what "They" use.

I've felt this way ever since I can remember. Even when I was a kid, I'd see them and not know what the hell they were thinking! I wasn't sure why such a thing would exist.

As I've gotten older, and they have only gotten more accepted, even celebrated, my feelings about them have become that much more intense.

People say that they should be "treated like Real Men and Real Women" and I couldn't disagree more. THEY ARE NOT REAL MEN AND REAL WOMEN!!

Not even close.

They don't even try to be.


They don't transform into people - so why should they be "counted" as them? It makes no sense.

They are NOT our friends.

I don't believe the whole nonsense about "the bad ones are Decepticons" that Optimus Prime apologists spout. They are all trouble.

Why else would they hang out with Michael Bay? That's just an explosion waiting to happen!!!

Seriously, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being "transphobic". That just means you are aware that these "Transformers" are out to get us!

Wait... what? That's *not* what it means?

What does it mean then?


Nevermind then, I'm not "transphobic". Not sure why anyone would be... Maybe I'm "transformerphobic". Is that a word?


While I'm trying to figure out that - here's something for YOU to figure out: who are you going to vote for in this week's poll?
