  1. I do appreciate Gender Identity Watch’s recognition that males and gay males exist and that we were decimated by the AIDS crisis. These basic factual recognitions are the underpinning of compassion. One cannot empathize with a legitimate community decimated by AIDS if one does not admit the community ever existed.

    I note that transgenders so often lack an ability to recognize fact, and here this female person arrogates the mantle of suffering from a community she never belonged to. Under the guise of religion, no less.

    I would certainly like to hear a statement from the “biological father” of this woman’s child about this woman’s new status as a gay man.

  2. Since I’m not a gay man I can’t speak for them because they have their own history, but this entire article is very confusing. I wish someone would point out the main idea or subject that this woman is trying to convey. Apparently, she has a Christian conservative background, but now identifies as a gay trans man. She mentions past sexual abuse and a family that was very conservative. After talking about her background, she starts talking about the AIDS crisis that decimated gay men. She basically says that she was trying too hard to act Christian and conservative to pay any attention to HIV among gay men.

    “These men were my brothers. I was ashamed then, and I am ashamed now, that I was so deep in my own selfish fear and shame that I hid from them instead of helping. I hid from them because I was hiding from myself and even from my God — in drag, pretending to be a straight woman.”

    “I saw them. I heard them. I grieved. But I did nothing; I was paralyzed. God forgive me.”

    What is the point? She says she ignored the AIDS crisis because she was too self-absorbed in her own personal issues.

    “I strove mightily to identify as a heterosexual woman for 39 years,”

    When she was a straight woman having sex with her men, did she really feel like a “gay man” then? It defies common sense and logic.

    @Joe “I would certainly like to hear a statement from the “biological father” of this woman’s child about this woman’s new status as a gay man.”

    It would be interesting to hear what the father of her child has to say about her being a “gay man”.

    Her doctorate is in theology, specializing in women’s studies and religion.

    “I eventually became an ordained minister and earned a doctorate in theology, specializing in women’s studies in religion.”

    • “Since I’m not a gay man I can’t speak for them because they have their own history”

      I never understand this comment as a reason not to speak. As observers of the world, we can speak. You speak, you construct an argument. If people want to discount what you are saying because, say, for example, you weren’t as gay man and instead were a married straight lady but still wrote a long op-ed talking about how scared you were during the AIDS crisis, fine.

      But this whole “I can’t speak for x” – I don’t get it. You speak for yourself. I speak for myself. let the best argument win.

      I am a white person, I will speak out against racism and white supremacy. I am a lesbian, I will talk about sexual assault by male partners. Etc.
