    Don't give them power by dwelling on them. If they can't 'deal' with it then that's their problem, not yours. I say form a team of your own and kick their asses.

    That blows. Being rejected for who you are always sucks. But you are in some very good company,

    Thank you all, I'm in a down place tonight. It sucks, it's stupid. I tried to do the right thing, and slowly introduce myself, and explain who and where I was in life and where I am going. One of the guys, has his mom bowling with us, SHE is the one I know that had the big problem. **** them.

    Sorry to hear this.
    Some people are ****ty human beings......most people are decent folks.
    You can only move forward and try to meet the decent people.
    Good luck.

    Sorry to hear this Renae.

    It should not be this way but then again I am not surprised it is happening. I hope you find a more accepting group, I am sure they are out there.

    Really sorry to hear that. How you find a more accepting group.
