    I would be one of the ones who was not sure. If I had to guess, I would have gone with the gender that person identifies with. Unless I was trying to be a jerk...then I would just try to force my view of that person on them.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    She took the risk of ostracizing her children to do what she thought was best for her. There's no arguing that point.

    First, it's this guy. No operation changes the sex no matter how hard you want it to. All it is some very expensive permanet "makeup." It's disgraceful to spit in the face of God and say He messed up.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Really. You must think lipstick is from the devil.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Did I say anything was wrong with makeup? No. I'm saying this guy is still a guy no matter what he thinks.

    I don't think the intent is to spit in the face of God. But surely we can all find compassion for those so troubled in body and mind. I really can't imagine, and I'm pretty sure you can't either, so maybe the focus should be on "Judge not...." and the timbers in our own eyes. That's more than enough to keep me occupied.

    I don't buy one ounce of that story - it has propaganda written all over it.

    This is how urban legends are born. Some idiot goes on record in a book - everyone buys the story and then 6 months later the truth comes out and it ends up on page 95 in the local newspaper mentioned as a blurb...

    No middle ground? No possibility that her children will be understanding? Accepting?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
