    Rick Santorum on Bruce Jenner: "If he says he's a woman, then he's a woman"

    Rick Santorum on Bruce Jenner: ‘If he says he

    I hope he wasn't planning a run in '16. Because he just lost. "My responsibility as a human being is to love and respect everybody..." he said.

    Might me more convincing if he (Santorum) didn't keep saying "he".

    Maybe there's something old buttoned-down uptight Rick isn't sharing with us ...

    I'd have preferred he said something like "None of my business" and left it at that.

    Pronouns can be tricky when you're talking about transgender folks--what's correct, I mean, changes before and after. Jenner is in between; he's transitioning now. Once he's chosen a new name, I think "she" will be easier as well as correct.

    True. It just struck me as a bit of a funny statement. Most people will respond to the visual clues pretty much automatically.

    This reminds me of how I've used "s/he" in online forums when the gender of the poster is unknown -

    Maybe it's now perfectly appropriate for those 'in-betweeners' like Mr/Ms Jenner!

    Until Bruce comes out as "her", as explained in the interview, it's okay. Besides, slips happen, as long as he wasn't being intentionally a douche about the "he" who cares?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    A rare moment of kindness from such a prick. I sometimes have to wonder if a lot of the loud bible thumping from political leaders is just an act.
