    Not everyone will like you, I guess this is so true. I am so sorry to hear about the rejection that you have to face. The best thing to do now is to move on and find people who will accept you for the choices that you made in life. Stay strong.

    Hard to believe all this over a spot on a bowling team. Sucks.

    If you were to get their sanction revoked, or their team kicked from the league, that's still revenge and would have the same result.

    Honestly, I think the best thing you could do is find another team on the league you could join and then you could smile, rub their noses in it every single week. Hell, you could also do what I used to do, become a roving sub so they have to see you every single week.

    The one thing I know for sure is, revenge will only escalate the hatred, further the divide, and destroy any chance that they might see the error of their ways. Right now your conscience is clear, and believe me if you choose to strike back at them, it won't be.

    Good luck to you, and I'm truly sorry you were treated that way.

    He did it to communicate that he doesn't recognize gender changes. People are still entitled to their opinion. Personally, I have no desire to discriminate against those who call themselves trans-sexual, just don't burden me with your choice. That includes dictating my vocabulary.

    Re: Well, I finally faced hate. A personal story.

    I have no interest in dealing with somebody who comes into my life as a boy one day and a girl another day.

    Make up your mind, that is not too much to expect.
    When society throws away the Truth Tellers prepare for the worst, for it is surely coming.
    Open your eyes and your mind and then speak truth..........That is the only way forwards.
