): That's awful. Are you doing okay? Have you spoken to her about it?

Good luck! :D

I don't know if anyone here has seen or even heard of the TV series Dead Like Me? It was made by the same guy who made Pushing Daisies (and was likewise prematurely cancelled).

I was watching S2 today, and there's a subplot in an episode in which one of the Reapers, Daisy, is sent to collect the soul of an S. Samson (Reapers are only given a post-it with the surname, initial and time of death of the person they're going to Reap), and she goes to the waiting room of a cosmetic surgery clinic.
She finds the person she'll be Reaping by asking "There's a problem with S. Samson's insurance", and it turns out "S" stands for Stan, the only guy in the waiting room. He tells her "Your company has made it incredibly clear that you're not going to pay for me" or something, and they have a brief conversation in which Stan reveals he* wants to undergo sex reassignment surgery.
Stan's killed in an accident moments later, but Daisy can still see and talk to his soul, and invites him to come for a walk with her before he Passes On.
They go outside and talk about how he'd always wanted to be female, and how his mother always prayed for him ("but not even a million prayers could turn me into a girl").
Daisy's been thinking a lot about religion in the few episodes previous, and suggests they go to a church and do some praying of their own. Stan agrees, but when they reach the (empty) church, he starts yelling at God for being so cruel (for putting him in a man's body, not letting him die). He says he'll forgive God, but only if God apologises first. As soon as he says it, the big stained-glass window is broken by a rock from outside. Daisy goes outside to investigate, and Stan Passes On while she's gone. Daisy's puzzled when she comes back and he's not there, but quickly realizes what happened. She smiles, kneels in a pew, looks up at the smashed window and prays "Blessed art thou among women".

He wasn't a major character, but I just thought it was really lovely to see a transgender character portrayed sympathetically - aside from Transamerica, I can't actually think of another TV/film protrayal of a transgender character past "she used to be a man!" jokes.

(*I'm referring to Stan as male here because the character physically presents as male and introduces himself as Stan)

Also, the Portuguese president had until the 28th of April to veto or pass the gay marriage law. He has done neither.

Gah. I know it sounds awful, but I do wish I could change my sexuality. Because I know I'm inevitably going to have to come out someday. Or maybe I won't, because I'm such a freaking coward.

Mom asked me the other day if I was gay... she said it would be okay if I were. But I denied it. >_>; Ugh! Nobody outside of TCoD even knows.
