    How did we get to this point where that is not a given? I guess the world needed some wierd stuff to distract us from the bad stuff already distracting us from the corrupt stuff.

    If you were born a man you cannot make yourself a real woman. If you were born a caucasian you cant make your self black or oriental.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,

    That is true, he should not be confused with anyone dangerous. He did however deliberately bring a $#@!load of attention down upon himself and much of it will be negative

    I certainly don't. However, when government and institutions get involved, creating quotas and incentives in a misguided attempt to "level the playing field", we end up with assholes like elizabeth warren claiming to be something they aren't for personal gain.

    Look, there are people who believe themselves to be farm animals. They are generally locked up. They are not people who thought themselves to be farm animals since they were small children, so it's really not like gender dysphoria. There are also those who think that they are Abraham Lincoln or aliens from Betelgeuse, again, not since childhood. We really know very little how brain gender and physical gender interact. For the most part, what you see is what you get, but the physical brain structure of transgenders is a little bit different than standard. Just because you can't see it on the outside, doesn't make it any less critical in determining who you are. Stick a woman's brain in a man's body and regardless of the external appearance, you will get a woman. Are some transgenders not really transgenders, but simply confused - very possible. However, transgenders have been a fixture on the planet for millennia and accepted in cultures far older and more conservative than America. This is not a new phenomenon, just one that has been persecuted in European and now American culture for a long time.

    I am actually a crossdressing and interspecies alien from zeta reticuli. In reality, I am a shapeshifting, reptile. For real!

    But transgenders show seriuos signs of mental illness even after being "accepted" or undergoing a change. We may well be enabling a mental illness with a ridiculously high suicide rate by way of wanting to be so very PC. Don't get me wrong people have a right to call themselves whatever they like but friends and family should certainly suggest a full mental health work up before endorsing the growing fad. I say fad, because the numbers have grown so much which makes no biological sense.

    I absolutely agree and realistically, I don't think any accredited surgeon in the US would do gender reassignment surgery without a thorough psych assessment. There is also generally a period of time that said individual has to take hormones and start living as the opposite sex before any surgery is even considered.
