    Pakistan allows transsexuals to have own gender category (video)

    Pakistan has taken the landmark decision to allow transsexuals to have their own gender category on some official documents.
    BBC News - Pakistan allows transsexuals to have own gender category

    Very out of character for Pakistan indeed! But at last, a step towards a civil society.

    Most pro-2nd amendment people agree that registration is a prelude to confiscation because the only purpose registration serves is a list of who has what so that the government knows which door to be knocking on when it wants to confiscate firearms.Now wouldn't it be a bad idea to basically tell a middle eastern government you like to pretend to be a gender your are not as well as give them your address and other important info?

    "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"

    So long as they aren't making a roundup list; it should be ok.

    The way you describe transgendered people shows a total lack of understanding how they actually feel and conduct themselves.

    I see the need for concern, though. Hopefully Pakistan isn't up to something sinister.

    Not really, at the surface it may seem good, but to my knowledge alot of middle eastern countries allow transgendered people only because they hate homosexuality so much, they would rather you change your sex, then to be homosexual. I watched a documentary on trans people in Iran, and it's quite sad, because alot of people go through the process when they don't suffer from GID, just so they can be with who they want.

    james has no idea about transgenderism. He just spews uninformed nastiness.

    I agree. This is EXTREMELY progressive for a Muslim country.

    Whoa... That is a big step for them, but I am not sure if that's the best thing to do or to let them claim the gender they identify with..

    Just to clarify... I think it is probably necessary to have a transgender gender class if they are pre op... That's just because of things like the prison system.
