Seriously what is wrong with some people

Unusual for me to do two posts in one week but I had to get this out of my system.

Was watching University challange last night and there was a transsexual team captain. It piqued my interest and I did a google this morning. One of the first things in the result set was this thread from digital spy:


I just can't get over the mindset of some of the posters there, espcially this comment:

WTF. Really WTF. I almost made a login just to put my thoughts there, but decided that it would be useless...

Is it any wonder that TS people have anxiety issues when there are 'people' (And I use the term losely) like this.


  1. The anonymous nature of the forum encourages over the top remarks. They'd be unlikely to be so unfair talking as a real person, I think. Still, we don't have an easy road, do we?

  2. That's very true I suppose - but I still could not beleive that people are so narrow minded (well probably I can, but don't want to).

  3. Sad, isn't it. We have a long way to go before we are accepted.

  4. Too true Calie.

    I have been thinking about your comment a little more Leslie... Whilst people may be far more confrontational online than they would be in real life - is this not more likely to be their actual thoughts and personality than the civilised person you meet in the street for the very reason that it's anonymous?
