I, too, see a post has gone missing so am not sure if it is a glitch or a mud elf who has removed it. Either way, I hope my post is allowed to stay in answer to the transphobic remark that was issued and in hope of clearing up any misunderstanding about Conchita Wurst and the Eurovision.
He really suffered a great deal in order to make the point he did and, because of the discussion he launched on the whole topic of trans, TV/CD, drag, and the differences he does deserve better treatment than he often gets.
This has happened before. The dragkings and transvestites stood alongside each other and gay peers at the Stonewall Inn to highlight the great discriminations against the gay community way back when. That started a whole change of attitude and education. Conchita Wurst is, I believe, along such lines as those involved with Stonewall. They are no threat to anyone's gender, no more than transsexual folk are. They just want to live unhampered and unmolested for the most part
