Denise Brennan was an outspoken Ex and transsexual (link). She passed away in 2014. Kate Bornstein is an outspoken Ex and transsexual (link). Would both of them be welcome if they showed up here today? Or merely tolerated? Openly vilified? Would they even bother opening an account if they read this thread? What is the message of this thread and others like it? Some Ex's are acceptable human beings and some aren't? Fair Game is really cool if someone seems different to you? This thread is a perfect example of what turned the previous board into an unkind unwelcoming place to avoid and unfortunately history is repeating itself.
