    Notice it is not neccessarily the sex itself.

    Today there are legal and medical standards, and regardless of how anyone "feels" about it, the fact remainds this is where we are. There is a recognized condition with recognized standards of treatment, which include gender reassignment, legally changing from one gender to another.
    What does this disorder have to do with electing a girl as homecoming king?

    lol @ Oscar, we are talking about gender, not sex..What's the saying Gender is between the ears, Sex is between the legs.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    The "real world" has transgendered people in it. I know, my brother is one of them. My brother goes to his college classes as a woman. I have gone out with my brother as a woman, and although there was some staring, the real world accepts transgendered people.

    No one is claiming to be a quack. Quacks apparently are ignoring biology nor are their expertise is physical issues. Seeing how they deal with mental issues not physical issues they should be trying to cure the mental disorder instead of facilitating it with drugs/hormones and greedy plastic surgeons.
    "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"

    that's right, genius, and until that treatment is obtained and gender is reassigned SHE is still female and not a man. I have no problem with her being transgender. I have no problem with her getting gender reassignment treatment. I have a problem calling an apple an orange.

    Maybe because she has been diagnosed with it and is living as a man.

    His class obviously wanted him to be homecoming king and didn't care that he was born a she and still had girl parts.

    Why does it matter anyway? It is just homecoming king and obviously the school was okay with her being a him for everything else he participated in, so this shouldn't have been an issue at all.

    Everything if this "girl" sees herself a guy. As I understanding, the wanting a change begins at a very early age.

    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.
