Transgender Dysphoria Blues
Against Me! mastermind Tom Gabel has announced that he is transgender and will begin to live life as a woman. Good for him. I've been perusing this here interweb thing and it is disgusting how many assholes out there are posting sh!t about his choice.
It's Gabel's choice to do whatever he/she wants to- Is it hurting anyone else? No! Does anyone else have the right to condemn him/her? No! This is between Gabel and his family...
...No one else.
It's 2012 and we still live in the fucking dark ages. We've got scumbag politicians and religious leaders still harping on about Gay Marriage and Gay people adopting children
Meanwhile, people are fucking starving: for food, acceptance, affection, understanding... you name it.
Good luck to Tom (aka Laura Jane Grace). It's unfortunate that we still live in an era in which luck has to even be given to someone for living the way they choose to.
