Feb. 8, 2013: Well Said

February 9, 2013

My niece sent me link to a blog by a straight guy named Dan Solomon regarding transgenders. Here’s an excerpt:

“Here’s why I take transgender issues personally…
Because I or someone I love might get cancer at some point, and a trans person who is capable of discovering the cure is otherwise occupied defending their right to exist.
I live in a world that needs leadership, and a smart, tireless trans person who should maybe be President is busy arguing that they deserve basic human respect.
I want to drive a fucking flying car someday, and the trans person who might invent it is stuck responding to Guardian editorials that treat them like they’re subhuman.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself. If you want to see the rest of his post, here’s the link:

Thanks, Dan.
