    Legally treated as women? You mean allowing them to fill out "F" on legal forms instead of "M"? Sounds okay to me.

    What could it possibly matter to anyone else? What does legally treated as a woman even mean?

    They get to be seen as women by the law. It's basically the government lying for them.

    No they should not be legally treated as women.They are not women.Dressing up as something you are not does not make you what ever it is you are dressing up as.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    This raises the question: what objective measure defines gender?

    Re: Should transwomen be legally treated as women?

    I wonder.


    Could I decide to self-define as a trans-woman trans-african-american in order to apply for (say) college aid or federal jobs, but not have to get the surgery / makeup?

Well, more than sucks. :/

    And yes, I know that not everyone can afford a sex change operation. That is why I would support government help in getting that operation for free.

    If you define gender as someone that takes hormones and got surgery then you're defining it in a stupid way.

    Well in legal instances where we differentiate, e.g. being able to legally marry a man, etc.
