I suspect imaginations are working overtime as far as gays/transvestites using a bathroom go. Who started this war? The current administration? Who got us into this debt? Oh yes, that's right! The previous administration took us from being in the black to being in the red! DEEPER in the red than ever! Let's not forget how many on the extreme right are refusing to admit even the possibility of climate change! We are all human, we all have our own lives, loves, belief systems. For one group to tell another than their lives/loves/choices are invalid is to me the obscenity here. Diversity doesn't mean secret shagging in a public toilet (unless you're a conservative senator from Idaho), it means having the common sense to know that just because someone is peeing in the next stall, it doesn't mean they're hitting on you...unless of course every time YOU take a leak, you are hitting on the person in the stall next to you, in which case, neat trick!
Why not try to wrap your heads around the concept that gays/lesbians, transgenders, and even those of other religious affiliations are discriminated against daily. They lose homes, jobs, etc. just because they've made a personal choice that isn't what the vocal majority chooses. These people are what make America what it is. A truly great place and home to every color of the rainbow....and even a few who have no color to speak of.
Taryn deserves respect for the courage and dignity she showed in speaking up. I doubt there are many who could come out to a parent who is as verbally against the essense of who and what we are. Taryn, wherever you are, best of luck to you and know that you do have support.
No! Not Ghost Adventures! They're hacks! Go for the groups who actually investigate what's going on there. There are plenty of groups that won't make a melodrama out of the investigation...unless of course that's what these places are looking for, which would be a shame. I don't know anything about the Nervous tv guys, so will have to reserve judgement there, but please, oh please, anyone but the Ghost Adventures guys!
