  2. wow, i knew some f*cktard would come out saying transgender people shouldn't be part of lgbt but i cannot believe it happened so quickly. sick is a perfect name for you cuz thats exactly what you are. this woman is an inspiration, and for anyone to say differently, gay or straight, is a worthless pile of trash. go back to the dumpster where you came from.

  5. So fitting that this woman will post her truth and story here for the WORLD to see and you hide behind the anonymous internet like a child.

  17. Amazingly beautiful....on the outside AND the inside.

    Posted by: Geoff | May 20, 2011 10:16:36 PM

  18. Isn't there a way to delete comments like the one made by 'sick' which is clearly hate speech?

    I support my trans brothers and sisters, and thought this was a beautifully done video. Thank you Janet!

  19. Psychologically, Janet is now female. If this has helped her achieve a happiness in life, good on her.

    However, we mustn't lose touch with the fact that you cannot change your gender no matter what you do on the outside. Your chromosomes cannot be changed. Janet is still biologically a male.

  22. Janet, there is no "despite," your journey is a triumph from its beginning to always.

  23. BRAVO Janet! I know many trans-gendered people, and Janet proves they are wonderful, valuable people. They are the most honest, trustworthy people I have ever met, and I am proud to call them part of my chosen family.
