It used to be called the gay community. Now we say the GLBT (gay, lesbian, bi, and transgendered) community.

If there is a MTF trans, or a FTM trans that has nothing to do with their sexuality. Just because someone is a trans does not automatically make them gay. Some girls will like guys, become trans and still like guys. Not all guys have to like girls, and not all girls must like guys. It's not a fucking rule.
It's not a fucking rule to not be a trans. It's not a fucking rule to consider your self a girl if you have a vagina, or a guy if you have a penis. If you feel like you are not right as the gender you were born with, there is nothing wrong with that.
There is nothing wrong with Transgenders, they are human beings just like all of us. Gender has nothing to do with life, and even though it's not right to make fun of trans, people still do and still will because people are sick.
Transgenders are normal people, and they are proud to be who they are.
Kyler was born a girl, but dresses like a guy, acts like one, and is currently taking testosterone, and she considers herself a male, she is a transgender.
