what gives people the right? (Bex- orange)

What gives people the right to get up in my face and question me about having short hair (or facial hair) or having an unusual name or something else so intensely that I have to choose whether I want come out to them as trans or lie? And then when I come out, they still push the envelope and want to know what my genitalia look like or who I'm sleeping with. REALLY? Do I have to have this conversation with my professor in front of all of my classmates? Do I really need to answer those kind of questions when it is adequately explained on the same internet page the picture is on that you are confused about? Is confronting me at a party when I'm having a good time in front of people I am NOT out to really the appropriate situation? And when you haven't talked to me in 3, 4, or 5 years... what gives you the right to ask me such intimate things and then judge me? And what give people the right to think I am deranged and mentally ill?

I'm frustrated. I wish some people would grow up.

Eh, can't force others to grow up. You'll unfortunately have to compensate for them.

Bex don't get so worked up over this. The negative comments towards you don't mean anything. Just remember there are a lot of uneducated people in this world and we need people like you to educate them. Keep up the good work it obviously gets peoples minds working. Controversey is a good thing.

Love Paul.

you're the one who needs to grow up Becky! You are so starving for attention that you make up Wack job illnesses and whine and bitch and moan about how much your life sucks. Get over it! you are alive- there are sooooo many people who have it worse than you do!!! and its a direct insult to those people. You can walk, you can see, you can hear, you can speak, you have a roof over your head, you can afford food, you have a family that loves you(even though to take them for granted), you have friends....... you need to take the time to realize that you don't have it so bad, and whining about how much your life sucks isn't going to change anything.
