The Difference Between Tolerance and Acceptance | Brynn Tannehill.

Constance, this article sums up perfectly what is happening to me at my work as transition gets further and further along…and it is a shame because I am truly becoming a better person everyday.  It is also another article on a topic I have previously written about.

Deep down inside?  If I am honest?  I truly feel sorry for them…because my Mama has been helping me to believe that I am actually a pretty cool person, and that She esteems and likes me very much.

BUT:  though I may be able to weather this, the fact is that this problem is due to the usual phobias and hatreds and superstitions that I have commented on here before and sought to dispel by open display of my own life and heart.  And those things are power things…not good power things.  They harm everyone who participates in them, not only the trans or LGTBQ humans who it’s directed at, but sadly it also affects the practitioners as well.  It truncates them, stunts them, dulls them, and ultimately enslaves them to ignorance and darkness of heart and mind.

As always, Constance…Charissa sez check it out…and when you see someone who is on the outside, offer them a smile and a hand.

Love, Charissa

  1. I am so sorry that you are facing this at work. You ARE a very cool person with an incredible attitude! Anyone who is simply tolerating you is losing out BIG TIME!

    And thank you for sharing this article. It addresses an important topic.

  2. Your blog is powerful……………………….it is honest and open but is written in great strength. Your work is always easy to read but the power behind each and every one of your blogs leaves an effect on your readers ( even if they completely understand your point of view) long after they have read your work and this my dear is your most powerful blog yet, can’t wait for your next blog. Your talent is amazing!
