    By your logic, this person:



    ...is the equivalent of what you posted.

    Only a vulgar human being would compare the two.

    By the ridiculous definitions here... it seems so.

    You see, I always felt I was a black man, never felt really comfortable 'round Whitey.

    Hell, if the first black president was a white guy, I'm in man.

    Know what'I'z say'in?

    Gender reassignment surgery can be a good treatment for gender identity disorder. It is not "playing along" with a delusion. It has the ability to greatly improve the quality of life for transsexuals.

    I have deep respect for those transsexuals who fight for equal treatment and recognition of their gender. However I think it was right to deny breast enhancement surgery in the story posted in the OP. A genetic woman would not have been able to get a breast enhancement simply because her breasts were not large enough for her. I think this is actually an example of equal treatment of transsexuals.
    Perhaps they should just hang out at Christiania... nobody would bat an eye.

    They should be free to hang out where ever everyone else does.

    But yes, Christiania is one of the places were people don't act like idiots around transsexuals.
    The poor complain; they always do
    But thatís just idle chatter
    Our system brings reward to all
    At least all those who matter.

    Maybe, maybe not. The mental health profession isn't an exact science.

    I claim to be neither polite, PC or honorable. I just say what comes off the top of my head and if that comes across as being rude, then... sorry.

    Its 100% correct. There's a reason the Olympics don't allow this transgender BS to pretend they are one sex or another because of some surgery.

    How is it vulgar to point out the fact that changing your appearance does not make you something different? So yes a man pretending to be a woman is no different than a man pretending to be a cat or any other thing.Only in make believe world does altering your appearance make you something different. Although I would bet cat man really knows he will always be a man regardless of how many implants or surgeries he has done. Only hypocrite and a retard would think that the two are somehow different

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    What I'm trying to clarify is that your biological make up is not what "he" and "her" refer to. Those terms refer not your sex, but to your gender.

    Sex and gender are not synonyms of each other. They are very different things.

    Out of respect I haven't linked the dictionary definitions of those terms, but if you would like I would be happy to post them if you think it would help the discussion.

    Essentially, when people call a tranny "her", they are not referring to "her" born biological sex. They are referring to "her" roll in relation to everyone else.
    I see it as reinforcing someone's mindset who obviously has deep psychological issues. I don't see it as a positive thing.

    Hypocrite and retard here

    Can you link to an example of someone being born with a condition where they think they are another species? I'll bet that if you can, we don't have a way for them to function in society. The same can not be said for transsexuals.

    It's a disorder, but we can't cure it. What we can do is help that person live a happy and productive life.
