    From my standpoint, the religion is about gifting the gods. When someone brings a gift to the gods, I don't really ask questions what ethnicity they are, or how they define themselves in terms of gender and sexuality.

    If some people want a "religion" of heterosexual Caucasians I cannot stop them. But I am bemused and offended as to why they have to insert my gods into it.
    I can understand that people would like their religious and political opinions to line up; if they are both dearly held viewpoints I can certainly see why there would be an emotional predisposition to such a confluence of ideas. However, I just don't think historical Heathen cultures are similar enough to ours to really make such a mutually reinforcing set of ideas plausible. I'm afraid modern political opinions will have to stand and fall on their own merits rather than being a logical outgrowth of Heathen religious practices.
    My views are one that speaks to freedom.

    Hell, the overwhelming majority of trans folks I know personally are queer, and thus not only have to deal with the people who will brutalise them for being trans but have collected the people who will brutalise them for having same-sex relationships as a sick, hellish bonus crowd of often-murderous asshats.

    I had the same thought, if only because I really don't want to deal with the OP's particular brand of ignorance / hatred or have it associated with this SIG.

    To the OP, I'm really not sure what you want. If it's affirmation, I think it's clear you're not going to get it, not least of all because your views have no historical basis, as others have rather kindly explained.
