IE: Get rid of the racial characterizations as we are ALL human. Get rid of genderism on their forms. etc etc. I fully believe that by using such classifications all it does is keep racism, sexism etc etc alive and well because people all to often use those classifications for their own bigoted agenda's.

    IMO the government needs to start making laws based on humanity. Not groups.
    Yes. Exactly.

    Rights are only for him. He's a "libertarian" who doesn't believe in anyone's rights other than his own.

    This isn't a rights issue. This is an issue that involves calling someone by a name that is factually incorrect or at the very least inconsistent. I would be perfectly ok with calling them by some other name besides male, but calling them a female makes it seem like they are equivalent to women, in which they are not.

    I think the question of what exactly that would mean is a good one, but in theory I think they should. In theory though, women and men are treated equally before the law, so "legally" I'm not sure what the difference would be.

    It is a rights issue. It's a person's right to live their own life as they wish. A person should have the right to their own decisions and their own life. Don't you believe that as a libertarian? Government out of people's lives and people's decisions for themselves?

    Legally, men and women are supposed to be equal anyway. So what you're really getting your panties in a wad over is whether it says "M" or "F" on a drivers license.

    I never said anything about a persons right to live their own life as they wish nor does this issue involve such concerns. This issue involves a legal classification, which is a legal matter.

    In what way are men and women classified differently before the law? And shouldn't they be equal if they are not?

    they should be treated like transgender legally because they cant be like a natural born woman.it is the fact of our biological differences.I feel sympathy for them but it doesnt prevent me from being reasonable

    This is intolerance of difference of opinion.

    What it should be classified is a mental disorder.

    There is a disorder where people want thier limbs cut off. Should we indulge that?


    And before you throw out the "there is scientific proof". no there isn't there are theory and hypothesis, there is no factual determination. And while we don't know, forcing others to indulge in others fantasy isn't the answer.


    Run what you brung. if you have a penis and want to wear a dress, godspeed, if you are an adult and you can find someone willing to give you harmones, and surgery godspeed.

    But to expect others, no, coerce others to accept your views, is wrong.



    I personally don't care what bathroom they use, I can see why men claiming to be women and wanting to enter womens bathrooms, would be viewed as troubling by some.
