Talk about generalizing, you said most of the Northeast is friendly toward TG and that is completely false. Just ask any TG person

Did I say the whole northeast? I said the major cities in the northeast.

Most of the city not friendly towards TG? Try again...I know quite a few people who live here as TG's and said they wouldn't live anywhere else because of how they'd be treated. Also, have you watched Real world Brooklyn? There's a TG on that show, and she said she's never been treated anywhere better than NYC. Quit making up stories.

I know many people there as well. They say the opposite. I do not watch real world anything either. You quit making up stories and trying to pick fights when you are wrong.

Rachael is not wrong, so please stop inventing things. Yeah if you would know many people there, then you would know that Rachael is correct.

How would you know? You are a Virginia Beach resident! I know alot more about the scene than either of you so I would guess I know what I am talking about.

Talk about another thread derailment due to the same people

You're the one who responded to me first, so don't put the blame on me

Also, Florida doesn't seem to be on this list, so I wouldn't list it as a top contender (except for Miami/South Beach, but that's it)--

"Many local and state governments have already enacted such protections. In Massachusetts, ordinances in Boston, Cambridge, and Northampton prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender identity or expression. Nationwide, 13 states, Washington D.C., and 102 cities and counties have passed non-discrimination laws or ordinances protecting people on this basis. The states are California, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Vermont, Iowa, Oregon, and Washington."

Funny how there's no southern states, by the way.

I did not respond to you first. If I had, I would have quoted you. You did the usual arguement based on your hatred of Florida as a whole when I mentioned that Ft Lauderdale had one of the best TG scenes in America. The link proves my point as well. They hold Boston up as an example of how TG are discriminated against. Boston is a major NE city

Funny, I don't see NY State on that list either

Yeah, so you and I are both wrong. At least there's states all around NY who have enacted the law. No where near Florida has it.

So we can agree that both states have very limited areas which are TG friendly then? That is what I was getting at. At least we can agree also that we need to make more progress in this area of human rights in America
