    Whatever the person is comfortable with. As far as I understand, Bruce still wants male pronouns to be used to address him. That will probably change soon, though. Once they say, hey, use these pronouns, that's when you switch. Or, if they're living as their desired gender and it's obvious.

    You mean "accuracy". "Correctness" is more subjective. Here's the thing, though, while I don't pretend to fully understand the whole transgender thing, reading about it (here mostly) for awhile now, I have concluded that the issue of sexual identity is far more complicated for some than it is most. I admit to being grateful that it's not complicated for me but if someone goes through the transition, lives their life from now on as a woman, legally becomes a "she" why not just go with it?

    Because I don't just go along with things to make people feel better. What good does it to peddle a lie to all of society to make a select few people feel better? I will neither accept a falsehood personally or tell it to someone else. Period.

    I was thinking this too. It had to have been a slip on his part

    If you had shown me that statement without telling me who said it, Ol' Frothy probably would not have been my first guess.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Someone in all seriousness, how did we survive so long with a very minority wanting to trade their balls in for a vagina or grow breasts while those with a vagina wanting to trade in to on a penis and balls. And then those who just want to act the part but keep their parts.

    We got folks seeking to use their designer touch on their offspring. They discard anything that may not be considered perfect to choosing one with green eyes and blonde hair. What a sick world we live in.
