So Tom’s gonna be Laura now… and in 2012 I still find people on the internet commenting  on another persons life how they insult and condemn a person for his choices.  
How about the people who go through this and never find peace and end up committing suicide?  Would you rather that?  Or maybe he could become a raging drug addict and ruin his life and family?  Would you rather that?  Or maybe we could have rules from a dictator where everyone gets killed for anything they believe against the government, oh wait that doesn’t work…
How about you leave the guy alone.  How about you let another human being make a decision about their lives without your snide prejudices and bigotry? This is one of the hardest decisions a person can make.  From my limited understanding of the subject, it means feeling your whole life like you were born in the wrong skin.  That’s something that 99% of us can’t understand.  Weither you agree or don’t, it’s not your life.  It’s not your family.  it’s not your band, it’s theirs.  
I don’t see the AM! guys very often, or if at all, but I always wish them well.  They’re a great band.  Leave it at that.  Just let them be a great band.
To those being kind, this is not for you…
If this is joke though, it’s in very bad taste to the people who actually go through this. But I will say that I still feel this way about anyone who makes a decision against what we call normal.  You can’t hate them, and they have the right, here in America, to make their own choices and live their lives free of prejudice.  
So go live, Tom.

****PS- EDIT NOTE**** - I do realize using “she” and “Laura” are appropriate but I was being considerate, since I don’t know Tom (Laura) that at this current moment to the best of my knowledge He is still a man named Tom, and hasn’t informed me to begin using she and Larua yet, as we don’t speak, and I haven’t read the article yet.  though he will soon be a woman named Laura, which I will then refer to her as such.  Can you please just look at the big picture here?Thanks.XOXOWhat are you my english teacher?
