14 Non Confrontational Questions to ask Transgenders and Christians

Snoop Dog made a comment that outraged many in regards to Bruce Jenner or Caitlyn Jenner being a science project. He isn't a conservative "Christian" right winged person. Many in the media have made this a LGBT vs Christian debate. That should not be so. Even the churches split over this issue, but what about those that are not a part of the 4% lgbt, or churched group?  What happens when you make the choice to change from one sex to another. This is not to persuade or dissuade, but rather to ask for transparency.  Comments below need to be personal answers  based on personal experience. Not a copy and pasted argument. Replies should be in love, and not bashing at all. Proverbs says, "Even a fool seems wise when he keeps his mouth shut." Thumper said, "If you don't have nothing nice to say, don't say nothing at all."
