    Re: Should getting a sex change be legal?

    I didn't read the entire thread, so I don't know if anyone brought up this point, but...

    There is no such thing as a sex chromosome change. What we call a sex change is nothing but hormone therapy and cosmetic surgery. Those should be legal, but since it does not change biological sex it shouldn't change legal sex.

    No, because sports organizations use a scientific definition of sex, while the government uses "gender" which has no biological basis. This is why a "male" can get pregnant. The government's definition of sex doesn't make sense in any way that matters.

    Re: Should getting a sex change be legal?

    Of course it should be legal if the person is a competent adult and they don't expect anyone else to be forced to pay for it

    my best friend in HS sent me an email a few years ago. It said Dear ____ I am changing my name and my gender. She was worried it would upset some of her friends. I sent her a reply noting she was my friend (admittedly it had been many years since we had seen each other-I went east coast for college, she went west coast and stayed there) when she was a guy and nothing would change.

    I figure if someone does this they have to have some good reasons-especially in their late 30s after having two daughters as a father.

    There is absolutely no reasonable argument in favor of it... Its not natural like some claim homosexuality is, its not reasonable, and until recently was not possible.

    Are you people out of your minds? You really think a sex change should be legal? WHY????????????????
    Our soldiers fought for freedom, right? why should it be legal to eat until you weigh a metric ton? why should it be legal to watch violence on television? why should it be legal to smoke in public places where others can smell? why should it be legal to drink? why shuold it be legal to invade other countries? why should political prostitution be legal?
    the last two SHOULD be ILLEGAL because they are going into someone elses business, but sex change is PERSONAL BUSINESS

    i don't see any problem with it, it harms no-one else and they pay for it, so let 'em
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    But they do not perform it on their own body. Doctors do, and doctors have far more important things to focus on in my opinion than cutting of peoples genitalia. Nor should it be legal to do so, doctors should not be permitted to do so, there is no sane argument in favour of allowing them to do so either.

    If the freaks want to get rid of their genitalia, they better cut it the **** of them self, or let some sleezy underground tatto/piercing place do it for them. Then lets see who wants to make a sex change.

    Right, because if there's one thing we all love, it's Big Brother making decisions about our private lives, right?

    I dont know if it should. In my opinion it should be legal, if you understand the consequences of eating yourself to such weight. And such understanding can only be possible through a comprehensive science of diet and physical movement and exercise that should be part of elementary school and carry equal weight with things such as mathematics. Until then, I think our governments should completely regulate the food industry and educate the population, and let them eat themselves to death if they still can and will.

    Watching something on TV is incomparable to cutting your genitalia off.

    It shouldnt be legal to smoke anywhere except on private property where it should be legal to anything that doesnt victimize other people without their concent.
    Cigarettes should only be sold in pharmacies on prescription, and cigarette smokers should be considered "sick".

    It has always been a big part of society. I have no reason to support it really, and I have no good arguments against it, because I do know the consequences of banning it. I do believe the best would be to follow the policy as above and not allow drinking in public places but let people do whatever they want in the TOTAL privacy on their own private propety. Public drunkeness is a HUGE problem.

    It shouldnt without it being for extreme circumstance which have to be a seperate discussion.

    It shouldnt. Democracy at its current place is a huge problem. Political corruption and the political process anno 2010 is the biggest problem the west is facing. We have to reform our politics and the way its conducted, we have to competely rethink it and make such corruption impossible by political nature.

    No, a doctor changes someone sex. If they want to do it themself, sure it could be legal. But it should not be legal for a medical professional to perform a sex change operation.

    Changing ones sex is the most unnatural and unnecessary thing of todays insane and sick society.

    Doctors abide by strict laws anyways, and ethical limits, making your argumentation completely irrelevant since "big brother" is already strictly regulation the medical profession.

    Indeed, but all the regulations make sense for health and safety reasons.

    You want to make something illegal simply because you don't like it.

    No, it should be illegal because it makes no sense to do it(a sex change that is). There is absolutely no good reason to do it.
