I would like all of your perspectives on this as well. Sent this to Matt at Tranifesto.com, as being genderqueer makes me part of the T in LGBT, as well as the L/G.
Firstly, I'd like to say I really enjoy your blog, and I never miss a post! I don't respond much because I am gay and genderqueer, not FTM, and I don't want to intrude too much.
Anyway, I think this is a question that can be helpful to ANY LGBTQ+ person, and I'd like to get your perspective. My question is handling prospective relationships across different faiths, and faith vs no faith. Personally, I prefer to date other atheists. I have a VERY painful past with religion, as you might have read in the post on the transphobic incident with the Shul. However, I get a lot of flack for making organized religion a dealbreaker. Here are my reasons for that:
I think so, too. But seems folks don't see it that way, and get pissed off when their faith is a dealbreaker.
My situation is a little unique. LGBTQI atheists tend to be REALLY fucked up. Like, REALLY. All that apologizing for living, justifying being both queer and religious,etc.
Also, my past with religion leaves no room for allowing that BS in my life at all for any reason.
Even beyond that, though, there's the fact that I just cannot ignore the fact that there is a part of her that I just. do. not. respect. At all, for any reason.
