    Liberals characterize common sense and common decency as “bigotry”. By that definition, I will proudly accept the label.
    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.

    Immoral to you. Don't care. Everyone has a right to live their life how they choose to live it so long as it doesn't interfere with anyone else's Rights. And Transgenderism certainly does not do that.

    As for the government paying for it...well...I say that they should pay for it, you say the opposite. Guess we cancel each other out and as such should let a neutral 3rd party decide huh? Only neutral 3rd party that can do that is the government.

    - This tells me all I need to know, good day. You're a christian? One of the ones that doesn't listen to Jesus, obviously.
    As Jesus was starting out on his way to Jerusalem, a man came running up to him, knelt down, and asked, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

    18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked. “Only God is truly good. 19 But to answer your question, you know the commandments: ‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. You must not cheat anyone. Honor your father and mother.’[a]”

    20 “Teacher,” the man replied, “I’ve obeyed all these commandments since I was young.”

    21 Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. “There is still one thing you haven’t done,” he told him. “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

    22 At this the man’s face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

    23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God!” 24 This amazed them. But Jesus said again, “Dear children, it is very hard[b] to enter the Kingdom of God. 25 In fact, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!”

    I'd think that should be up to the person whom they failed to inform of their status prior to sexual intimacy. If the person feels they have been deceived and suffered emotional trauma as a result, I think they should have the right to sue.

    If they're ok with it, well obviously they won't be filing suit.


    While I realize this would put a burden on transgenders to have this legally stipulated, frankly I think it is only fair. There are lots of people who, regardless of their feelings about the transgendered IN GENERAL would nonetheless be appalled to find out they'd had sex with one without knowing it beforehand.


    I don't know if this is true or not, but I'm told that an observant man will probably realize that "something is different" somewhere along the way, (I hear lingering scar tissue can be a problem in some cases), so if it is going to be revealed at some point anyway, it seems much better and more fair to all concerned to reveal it BEFORE intimacy takes place.

    In some cases, it might even be important to the transgendered person's safety. I think there are still quite a few people who might react very badly to finding out "after".

    In any case, it is only fair and reasonable and honest to be forthright about such things. I'd put almost (I said almost) it on par with revealing whether one has any STDs... it should be known beforehand so the partner can make a fully informed judgement about whether he/she wants to deal with the other person's situation.

    Yes of course they should. The only exceptions should be in certain sporting events at the elite level, particularly endurance sports where they might have a physical unfair advantage. Other than that rare case, they should be treated like women under the law.

    The fact that taking hormones and getting surgery does not change your sex. You are aware that transwomen and women are not the same, right?

    That one is a perfect example of what testosterone injections coupled with weight training can do in terms of protein synthesis.

    Genetic diseases are not like transgenders after surgery. Nice try though.

    Why do you care? What difference does it possibly make in your life or your family's life for a transgendered person to be legally treated as the sex they transitioned to?
