I just finished reading the article. Damn subscription for showing up late! But that aside, that was one of the best things I have ever read. I like how almost...non-chalant Laura is being about this. It's a big deal to everyone else because we're just finding out, but in her mind, she's just the same. She'll just look more the part. Reading actual responses from the wife painted a better picture in my mind, and I think she will stick through this. It's the person she fell for, not the anatomy. Overall, the article was beautiful, and I hope Laura continues to be so public about it. I hope one day we hear stories like this and it doesn't need to shock the music world or be a big feature in Rolling Stone magazine, because it's happening all over and is accepted. Maybe that is just wishful thinking, but Laura is pushing things in the right direction. Cheers to her and finally feeling alive!
bought it today, read through it a second time at work. i never noticed so many references that were there right in front of me to this. Laura's right (yes, I have officially transferred to Laura), that there were a lot of hints to this that no one seemed to pick up on. I'm impressed she managed to keep it a secret while yelling it in our faces, and im happy shes going to be happier now, just keep growling
I bought the Rolling Stone magazine and read the article. It seemed to me that the band didn't take the news too well as they all smoked a bowl after the news broke. I really have my doubts that Heather will be able to go through with this as she stated that she is not into women. She even mentioned if she met Tom as a girl before they got married that she would have no interest at all. The article also mentioned his drug abuse past as a teenager and I'm just concerned because if things don't go well over the next coming months I don't want to see Laura od'ing on drugs.
fuck this. I bought all of this bands records. went to their shows. bought their merch. their dvd. and then watched them leave fat and sign to a major. watched warren leave the band. watched tom write 2 awful records. one of which features a song which basically makes all of his past work seem like bullshit and lies. and finally when I think maybe they will just break up and go out quietly, no, he comes out and says hes going to become a fucking woman and hes been confused for years. I don't buy this shit. and if it is real then for fucks sakes I hope he just stops writting music to. you thinks James or Andrew want to write music with a tranny? I know sound selfish and all that shit, and stupid people will say "hes confused and now he will feel right in his own skin blah blah so on and so forth durp durp durp", but fuck that shit, hes literally sabotaging his own band, fans, wife, daughter and life. with all that said. i really wish this is just some big alaborate hoax and they just put out another shitty record i can ignore.
Your spelling of 'elaborate' is the most telling part of this post.
