    Gender is sex. They are not two separate things as you keep claiming they are.

    2 : the behavioral, cultural, or psychological traits typically associated with one sex

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"

    The 2 means a different definition. In otherwords, it can apply to sex, but it can also apply to the behavioral, cultural, or psychological traits typically associated with one sex.

    The school set the rules. Period. "Elect a boy for king. A girl for queen." No ducks involved.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    If the school does not meddle then the kids grow up to be morons who think its okay for Jean to be Jenny, Johnny to be a duck or Vicky to be Vincent and then force the rest of society to play along with this fantasy by letting state legally recognize someone as something they are not.

    Re: Transgender senior can't be king

    BTW, all those comparing people who think they are animals to transgendered, these arguments are no more genuine than those arguments that try to place same sex marriage along the lines of marrying an animal. A person doesn't just get a brain injury or lose their mind, and decide that they want to be the different sex. And from what I know of my family, I'm pretty sure transgendered people are born that way and it is at least somewhat genetic. Transgendered people don't have an unrealistic belief that they are a different species or can do impossible feats that can get them hurt, they just feel like they are the other gender of our own species from what they were born. Some are heterosexual and some are homosexual, there are probably even some bisexuals out there.

    That makes about as much sense as "schizophrenics were simply born in the wrong reality."

    What we've got is a girl who thinks she's a guy. It's a mental disorder.

    you mean like the acceptance that a fetus gets of the human that it will become?
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Kind of foolish to sit there and say were not talking about sex were talking about gender when gender is defined as sex.
