They go hand in hand to me. I find it very hard to distinguish the difference between a homosexual relationship, and a transgendered female in a relationship with a man.

Just thinking about the complexities of TG hurts my brain. I've yet to see people support homosexuality and leave TG behind. I think they go together, but then again since there is so much more going on with TG I'm not sure.

Do you feel that if you are pro-gay you also have to be pro-transgender because they go hand-in-hand?

I don't fully grasp everything about the trans community, but i respect their right to exist in peace and be judged on the quality of who they are and bring to the world academically, professionally, etc like everyone else.  if that's what it means to support it, i do.  i used to feel uncomfortable with the idea of doctors having the power to create an entirely new identity for someone but then i realized that it doesn't remotely effect me so I don't care.  everyone's time on Earth is just too short to be focused on other people's paths.  it's really not difficult to navigate the world without it being a concern in your life.

Eta: Despite the gains the other aspects of the community have made acceptance-wise, the same can't be said for trans rights. There's so much general ignorance about the trans community (on all sides) and much of that translates into blatant hostility and/or disrespect toward transpersons on a daily basis. I've seen it on here at times and people don't bat an eye. And to many, because of the lack understanding, because of the lack of public support, it's that much easier/justified to come for transgender persons. They are still fair game.

I'm pro everybody being treated with the respect their humanity deserves and having equal rights and access.

I'm pro calling people by whatever name or signifier they want (he/she/ou, they/them, princess queen dante if they want)...I'll adjust forms and make certain accommodations.

There are some things I'm not cool with like paying for prisoners to have hormone treatment or gender reassignment surgery...or people being allowed to use bathrooms they shouldn't be using...and I'm sure there are other things to. And if that means I can't be an ally...then oh well.

I don't think they go hand in hand.
LGBT is not a monolithic group.
I know some gays who don't think that the T should be in the LGBT umbrella.

I don't fully understand transgenders, I think it must be extremely difficult.  I think they are all different facets of sex, sexuality and gender that are interrelated, so I support both.

i support the free expression of sexuality and/or gender. 

as far as how accepted they are overall in the LGBT community, from the outside looking in it looks like people pick and chose what they accept like everything else.
some gays don't accept bisexuals, some butch lesbians would be insulted if you called them transgender. so i don't put anyone in a box as to what their beliefs may or may not be because they affiliate with a certain demographic.
