    If you can look me in the face and tell me that she's faking her story, then you deserve to have your own gender icon questioned for the very same reasons.
    Has nothing to do with "faking". Has to do with her not knowing what the hell she wants.

    I wanted to be a professional baseball player at age 11. Would you pin a 20 dollar bill on a 5th grader with a baseball glove and drop him off at Yankee Stadium to never look back?

    Not sure that is the same thing, but fir the record, parents go to great lengths to make their children the athletes they want to be.

    I'm not completely sure how any if this works. However, if it allows a person a happiness they wouldn't have otherwise, I see no reason for me to condemn it.

    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.

    You remember that when your 7 year old is begging and pleading you for chocolate cake for dinner.

    Yes, and girls were icky, not boys. I wanted to run and nap knock things over, not have tea or dress dolls. I'm saying it is possible. And I suspect better found earlier than later.

    The foregoing is intended, I suppose, as hyperbole, but there is a point, I think.

    The homosexual-rights movement always has, and always will have the problem that no matter what they do, what acceptance they may gain or hope to gain, they will always represent only a tiny, freakish minority of the human population. Their perversion is contrary to nature, and the course of natural selection is to weed it out.

    They've taken “transgenderism” in under their wing, which is an even tinier, more freakish, and more perverted deviation, but it at least adds a little bit to their numbers.

    It should never be any surprise to see advocates of other sexual perversions seeking, and sometimes gaining, inclusion under the LGBTQWTF… movement. Anything that adds to their numbers.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Did you even watch that video in its entirety?

    How about this. You go back and listen to it, and then maybe I'll listen to you.

    EDIT: Your baseball analogy is a terrible one. Gender is not something that somebody decides they want to be. Do you have any idea how much agony transgendered people endure because of attitudes that try to box them into an identity that they inherently do not fit into?

    It makes me so happy that these kinds of attitudes are literally dying out.

    Okay. Time out. For the sake of argument, how do I know that you're a male? How do you know that I'm a male? Because of those little icons we selected when we signed up to DP?

    Who are you to judge her? You don't know her. You don't know what's inside her mind. And you obviously didn't listen to her clear, consistent understanding that she is a girl.

    I pray to God, if he does actually exist, that you never, ever, ever have a gay or trans son or daughter.

    Something we can agree on.
