Boy and Girls
You should provide some summary and perspective, rather than just link to something else.
FTA If I were to say, “Doc, I am suicidal because I’m an amputee trapped in a normal body, please cut off my leg,” I will be diagnosed with body identity integrity disorder. But if I walk into that doctor’s office and say, “I am a man, sign me up for a double mastectomy,” my physician will. See, if you want to cut off a leg or an arm you’re mentally ill, but if you want to cut off healthy breasts or a penis, you’re transgender.
No one is born transgender. If gender identity were hardwired in the brain before birth, identical twins would have the same gender identity 100 percent of the time. But they don’t."
Convincing people that you are "transgender " is like telling people you were born with two left hands...... It physically didn't happen.
Oh yeah? Guess you've never had neighbors like I did!
When homosexuals stayed in the closet they were treated like everyone else. When they came out they were treated like someone special. Now everyone who thinks they are different wants special treatment. That includes transgender individuals and African-Americans. One of our rights is the right to discriminate and the government has taken that away. When the government can tell you who you must do business with or with whom you must associate you become nothing more than a slave.
So do you obey the government in such matters, or do you stay true to your convictions?
Do you pay property taxes to the town, even though there is no constitutional basis for doing so? And no basis for them creating and maintaining roads, for example?
Including the one that heads out to your place?
I noted that this thread title included the word rational .
I am sure there will be more irrational offerings to follow.
Michelle A. Cretella, MD, FCP (Fellow of the College of Pediatricians), the President of the American College of Pediatricians, has even praised the book Preventing Homosexuality, calling it “an invaluable resource for parents.” She is also on the Board of Directors of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), a group that supports reparative or conversion therapy for homosexuals.
The American College of Pediatricians goes so far as suggesting adding a ‘P’ to LGBT acronym. No, the ‘P’ wouldn’t stand for pansexual in their world – it would stand for pedophile.
