    I was reading the posts above yours and thinking to myself, "hers." Hers.

    Very interesting case--Maryland, maybe--of a firefighter who underwent the surgery and then had to sue when her department vehicle was taken from her--meaning that she lost overtime pay--and also her office. One of the folks she sued had been the best man at his wedding ten years before. (This is sooo complicated.) Thought most of the case had merit, but one of her complaints was use of the pronoun "he" when she is now a "she."

    That's asking too much, I think--to expect people you've worked with for a decade to not slip up and use the wrong pronoun.

    Anyway, re the SEAL, while I can't imagine what it cost him to make this decision, I think what we can all do, at least as a matter of respect, is work on the pronouns.

    if the person in question still has a penis that person is a MALE.

    Completely wrong. You are clearly ignorant on the subject.

    really? so if this person was found dead and naked the coroner would say that there is a JOHN Doe or a JANE Doe in the morgue?

    Really? That's your great mark for gender? How silly.

    The PC bs does not play in my part of the world. but I will allow that someone who has undergone complete surgical reassignment would be a she as far as I am concerned. But someone who is still has the schwing is a dude

    Raising yet another interesting question. If you're no longer attracted to someone because you learn they're transgendered, is that just harmless preference or is it bigotry? I may make that a poll.
