Trans people just don’t exist

To the Editor:

Your entire article regarding the trans person at the Waynesville Recreation Center  starts with a lie.


There is no mere existence of trans people. There is no existence at all of trans people. And then your article attempts to make it look like religious fanatics are the only ones opposing the transgender lies.  

The biggest opposition comes from the LGB community. People who have nothing in common with the fantasts claiming to be of a different gender than the one they were born with and they will die with. The self-proclaimed trans mob attaches themselves to the LGB community in a two-fold attempt, one to try to profit from the achievements of the LGB community and the other to try to justify their lies by pretending to be a real thing.
