  • One needs to note that Scott Eck was a traffic reporter for WBZ mainly from a studio at first and only last the few years reporting from the helicopter not all 19 years as stated in the report

  • So, I knew you as a man…. And now you decide to change gender after all these years??? It does " a number on people " And, it's rather uncomfortable! And, so I decide to not interact with you…. And you get to politicize it and call me a transphobic? And hurl labels upon straights because we find it uncomfortable..

  • This is a sickness and should be treated as such! A man in a dress is still a man in a dress! Stop trying to make the world conform to this shit!
