One of the big advantages those of us who came out young have always had was never having been men. We may have had abused sissy boyhoods but by coming out before becoming fully adult with adult histories we avoided a lot of the baggage that many who come out later have as part of their lives.
This is why I (and I speak only for myself) have such a hard time relating to the whole transgender culture. Being a left wing folkie/hippie bohemian was and still is at the core of what I consider “my identity”, if identity is a group or culture one feels a part of. Transsexual was something I was born and had an operation for. Woman isn’t an identity for me, it is just what I am as a result of being adult and female. Lesbian isn’t an identity for me either, It is something I am as the result of being an adult woman who loves other women.
I suspect that kids who are able to transition early and don’t even have teenage experiences in their assigned sex will be even less inclined to embrace Transgender Culture.
Much of transgender ideology and culture is based on the idea that there are highly restrictive gender categories. It is a product of a highly repressive era and not of the 1960s or 1970s. How can a kid who has never been a different gender and whose parents permitted her or him to naturally develop his or her gender be considered transgender? Especially since gender isn’t assigned at birth but is taught or develops as a result of the assigning of sex.
So Here’s to the Girl Scouts of America. Support them and buy their cookies.
Boo to the Christo-fascists and their bigotry for pulling several Louisiana Scout Troops out of the GSA.

Leaders resign in protest of Girl Scouts of Colorado’s decision to admit boy

Leaders of three troops of Girl Scouts quit their posts and disbanded the troops after the organization’s Colorado chapter said it would allow a transgendered 7-year-old to join.
The troop leaders, all affiliated with a Christian school in Louisiana, resigned in protest of the Colorado chapter’s decision to allow participation from any child who identifies as a girl, The Christian Post reported.
When a local troop leader refused, saying Bobby wasn’t allowed to join because he had “boy parts,” Archuleta appealed to the leadership of the Colorado chapter, the mother previously told the Daily News.
The organization reviewed the troop leader’s decision and opted to enforce its policy of inclusion for transgendered children, The Christian Post reported.
