To Hell with crossdressers

I've written often about transvestites here. Some folks may have wondered why. Others probably assume that I have a fetishist's hunger for them.
While a transvestite boyfriend might be keen the transphobia of many queer men disgusts me deeply. I can't in fairness really object to the commonplace homo's wish to blend silently into the hetero majority. Average is as average does. I wish you all happiness with your football player wet dreams.
But rejecting, disrespecting the small group of gay men who feel a special happiness when in women's clothes is wicked. Very wicked from a group whose most conventional members have spent centuries hiding their loves and needs lest they be burnt at the stake or sniggered at by fellow office workers.
South Africa's Gay and Lesbian Alliance:
"To cross dress or change one's sex is not a qualifying factor to be part of the lesbigay orientation. Men dressing as women or women dressing as men harm the image of the lesbigay community," it said.
The party said Lesbigays were "average people" with only a single identifying aspect, namely same-sex orientation and it believed "most South Africans will welcome our decision".
Average people, bless their hearts: they elected our average president and made the world the everything it is today.
