    No, it certainly isn't normal. The argument is that they should be treated with the same respect as those who are "normal." You know, like Amendment 14.

    You see Boys Don't Cry? Hillary Swank was awarded the 1999 Academy Award for Best Actress. Hollywood seems to making the cry for normalcy.
    Oh come on. Surely that's not fair. Hollywood loves to give out Academy Awards for playing retard, losing or gaining astronomical amounts of weight, and Hollywoods biggest love of all is when hot chicks play ugly chick parts.

    Surely that doesn't mean Hollywood is promoting retards and ugly.

    I don't think anyone has made any argument contrary to that assertion, so far.

    Mental disturbia is a matter of human nature. People are born retarded all the time and we accept that they need special help. Transgender individuals should be in this category as well.

    What's amendment 14? I have 4 guns.

    You made that assertion when you suggested that Transsexuals shouldn't have certain type of jobs. or did you already forget about this post?

    I wouldn't want someone who was guilty of hot check schemes, petty theft, or even a pathological liar (which I could easily see a transexual becoming if they become accustomed to living with so great a lie just to assimilate) working with children, in addition to other sensitive jobs.

    No, I did not forget about that post. And that post is, in no way, an assertion that they should be denied the 14th Amendment, your hysterical caterwauling aside. The 14th Amendment makes no guarantee that all jobs are open to all people. I think you need to bone up on your comprehension of the 14th Amendment before you start making wild accusations.

    I said, like amendment 14. Learn to read.

    What you are suggesting is borderline discrimination.

    You want to try again?

    Try what? To evoke another half assed response from you? No thanks.

    What I suggested is reality; people are barred from certain jobs all the time and it isn't based on discrimination. Discrimination would be: You're a transexual so you can't have this job despite your ability to do the job satisfactorily.

    What I suggested is: due to your mental disturbances, certain jobs may not be suitable for you because you may not be able to perform the jobs satisfactorily.

    Learn the difference.

    You imagine a transexual being a Cop or a soldier? Or in a position of customer service? His inability to do his job would be in abundance.

    That's all I'm saying. Again, I want to be an NBA All Star but I don't think application of the 14th Amendment is gonna make that happen.
