Deep sigh.

Metallacus, let's talk for a minute. It is likely impossible I can say anything that help will shift your perspective but it is possible that some reading here might be open to a better understanding and find that in my reply to you.

Would you reject your children if they were gay or would you have "not allowed that behavior nor encouraged it in the first place" and treated them like "freaks"? If so, you fail as a parent and your children are going to run away, live on the street, turn to alcohol and drugs and to survival sex work IF they don't just kill themselves outright. This is the plight of transgender children with parents that don't support them. 77% of transgender youth seriously consider suicide, 43% attempt suicide before the age of 20. There is a 93% drop in suicide rates among youth with strongly supportive parents. Which would you be?

If you wouldn't reject a gay kid, which is completely something different, why would you also not reject a transgender kid that needs some real support, love and healthcare from their parents? Being transgender is not a behavior, it is something kids are; boys and girls. The foundations of who we, all of us and everyone, are as people and our core personalities are based on gender and our own sense of which gender we are. Crudely illustrating that this sense of gender comes from between the ears, if your lost your male genitalia to an accident of some sort, wouldn't you still feel like a man? Would you "behave" any differently of feel compelled to put on a dress? That is your gender identity and your sense of being one or the other at work. Is there some outside influence that could convince you that you were anything else other than a man or in other words is what makes you a "man" all in your penis ?

Probably not and that's because as we develop in childhood, children become aware of gender around 2 and their own sense of which one they are is usually as fixed and unwavering by 4 or 5 as would your gender be as unwavering in the scenario above. Implied-implicit testing methodologies used on transgender children shows their sense of being boys or girls is of equally strong conviction as non-transgender children. Transgender kids are who they say they are.

Many parents of transgender children also share your attitude - can't happen to one of MY kids or not in MY household and are equally repulsed by the idea. Fortunately some parents also happen to love their children unconditionally and when faced with this will educate themselves to learn how to help their children and put their kids feelings, happiness, health and success above their own feelings or beliefs. No parent wants to face this and nobody wants to be transgender but it is real and it does happen. Support is available for parents and families and educators and organizations on how to best care for and affirm the lives of these special kids. It is not easy. It can be complicated and confusing and tear families apart and destroy lives. It's not a game and if you end up being a parent of a transgender kid, I hope for their sake your love and compassion for them wins.

The PBS Frontline Documentary: Growing Up Trans is a good place to spend an hour and a half examining and learning more about these issues and parenting.

ETA: The least we can do is let these kids pee in peace.

I am not criticizing people that are upset with the the bathroom issue. I personally think it is an issue that has been blown out of proportion, . .


How about you research the medical issues transgenders have - - - for trying to hold it all in - - - instead of just being able to use a bathroom.

Think about it. YOUR Health.

And we're talking about children too. There are transgender children. Sorry, honey - - you have to hold it because someone made a law that you can't pee.

Oh yeah, and can't remember if its Miss or Tenn - - you can refuse service to a single mother for religious reasons.



Yep. They do have a problem. In their head. They should seek counseling, then at their recommendation go for some surgery. Instead of this normalisation of mental illness crap. Don't see how it helps anyone.

there are plenty of porn sites, but it is nice to see people make a stand.

Maybe before we blast an entire religion you take a look at your Germanic pedophile, murdering, Nazi, royal scum family.

No, it couldn't.

I would not have allowed that behavior nor encouraged it in the first place.


Ha Ha Ha

As if you have control over whether your child is trans or not.


Something tells me he might be the type to beat the gay out of them perhaps? Or dis own them and say I have no son and or daughter. its a shame that its a valid condition and people treat them like they are virus carriers.


I expect that to be true.

Chosen ignorance.


If you are a parent you help your child to make good choices. Just because a child thinks they want something doesn't mean you indulge their every fantasy.

I allow my child to make choices like what sport to participate in or what instrument to play in the band. I don't allow them to choose self-mutilation or other self-destructive behaviors.

Its called parenting.

That you continue to refer to it as behavior - - - is ignorance.

If your child was born trans - - - you would choose ignorance over what they need.

Not good parenting.

If they are they need treatment not for me to enable them.

To enable the way that someone is born?

Do you listen to yourself?

Your kids probably don't.

I certainly wouldn't have.

Is that you, dad?

Still know everything, I see.

Also, I don't need to insult you personally to make my point.

You should try it...

I wasn't insulting you.

Geeze, I didn't know you were one of those "sensitive lib-types".

And it's not about what I believe.

You said that if your child was born that way, you wouldn't "enable" it.

You wouldn't "enable" the way someone was born.

The statement is just asinine; that's what I "believe".

I decided to do some research on that site... It's mostly low quality disgusting stuff.
I wouldn't be too disappointed if I were them. I didn't see anything good there.

Or treatment as in "punishment"?

Its not really about what YOU believe.

Its about what is.

And, Yes, they do need "treatment" - - - the right kind. The kind that helps them transition with support and self-esteem.

Rejection is the opposite of that.

I might just have to watch some porn in protest.

How about we ban Kenny Copeland, Joyce Meyer and the other screw loose televangelists? they take random passages from the bible and turn them into rants and diatribes. I don't take a passage from 'green eggs and ham' and turn it into anti Islamic gobbledygook.

The bible has it's good messages but the problem lies within some of it's messengers.

i am sorry i have no problem with gay and lesbian people i have friends that are gay but i do feel if you got a penis you should use the boys room and if you have a vagina you should use the ladies and hear is why. if you allow people to pick which room they want to use you are going to have a bunch of weirdoes who will see this as a free pass to get into the ladies room i have seen all kinds of crazy when i used to work at roses department store including guys going into the ladies and peeping on girls in the stalls needless to say those people left the hard waybeaten down buy the ladies and in handcuffs . i have no problem with homosexual men in the mens room with me i know what i like . i just feel if you allow it you will have perverts use it as an escape clause to do their thing. post surgery trans gender people are diffwerent they could use the ladies because they got fascimiles of the proper equipment
