    On your scale, Mike Pence would be a 1, only because I can't score him lower. Kamala is a 4-5 because I can't be sure she will TRULY be a strong ally FOR US. I have no doubt she will be an ally for the LGB but that does ME zero good. I need her to be strong for the TRANS....and given her history, I am not sure, at this time, I can trust her to do that.

    From your perspective it sounds like you consider her to be more in argreement with Mike Pence on LBGT issues than she is with Joe Biden, and if she had been the Democratic nominee, you would rather vote for Trump, much like many Sanders supporters in 2016; prefer someone far worse from the Republican side (Trump), than someone who is not 100% in agreement on the Democratic side (Clinton).

    That is a perspective you are projecting onto me...because I don't march 100 percent in lockstep with you. Because YOU don't give a damn if I or members of my community are murdered. You have YET to acknowledge my concerns, and why I feel as I do...so I am forced to the above conclusion that you do not give a damn about my community.

    Frankly, Kamala is pretty good on GLB issues from what I can tell. I do not TRUST her to be good on TRANS ISSUES.

    You are under the misapprehension that gay friendly equals trans friendly and I am here to tell you that it doesn't.

    You are putting words in my mouth, and you are ascribing to me actions I have not taken, nor ever said I would...just because you don't like that I don't kiss Kamala's ass. She must EARN the trust of the trans community. She hasn't yet done that...and her history in Norsworthy is one strike against her.

    Obviously Trump and Pence are worse...so why would you ever assume I might vote for them?? I just for ONCE...want to be able to vote FOR someone...instead of always having to vote AGAINST someone.

    Now, if you want to start being just a little less offensive towards me, we can continue this conversation. Otherwise, frankly, you have yourself a nice day.
