I take that to mean both Obuma and Shillary will fade out and we can gratefully, make way for Trump and throw this PC nonsense in the rearview.

Should we try to steer their way to the gender that corresponds to the sexes they have and end up ruining their lives or just go along and work with doctors and see where it goes?


Not steer them one way or the other. Just let them be and be a loving parent no matter what. Let their brain develop before supporting a life changing, unnatural decision.

The fact that this is being debated is insane.


Do you comprehend the physical changes both male and female go through during puberty?


God forbid a son matures into a young man and realizes they're not a girl😆😅

You have spammed that rubbish in multiple threads now as though one biased study is confirmation of your preconceived notions.

And once again the truth brings you out to battle, impotently, I might add.


That article is nothing more than propaganda to slander those who maintain conservative/traditional views.

I understand, the truth hurts!
It will always hurt!
You wage the same impotent attack, but refute nothing!
All the data supports what i offer, and you have nothing.
Try some conservative Republikkkan Xtian website for some real 'valuable' ammo with which to battle Truth!! *__-


The truth is that there are highly intelligent people that are prejudiced, as there are very simple people that are prejudiced as well. There is no correlation between maintaining prejudiced views and low IQ level.

Yeah, you can keep repeating yourself, but you are wrong.
As I said, that you cannot refute;
"We are all racist, either practicing or recovering! Denial = practicing!"
Those of us with the lesser intellects do more 'practicing' (and denying)!


History shows us that some of the greatest minds ever recorded maintained views that could be classified as prejudiced.

Perhaps, but not 'practicing' their 'social norm'!
And one or two 'spikes on the chart' mean nothing, statistically, anyway!
I will continue to post the results of good experimental data as I see fit.
Despite that it disturbs your 'vanity'!
It's easy not to like something that 'stings', what we do with it manifests our intellectual honesty, and character.
Unless you wish to have a real 'debate', and find valid and logical evidence to support your irrational emotional defense/attack, I am done discussing your (obviously) bigotry, Mr Ghost.
Or the (as yet) unrefuted notions that I offer.

Perhaps we'll talk of other things...

Your version of truth. As I said before, just because you found a biased study that agrees with your own preconceived views, you feel this is definitive proof that the conclusions drawn are logically sound. How misinformed you are.

Why would I attempt to find a conservative or Christian website as a source when I don't identify as either? But even if I did find a link from one of those sites, you would dismiss it as right-wing propaganda. Studies are generally unreliable because there is usually a vested interest either funding it or authoring the study. Also, studies only experiment on a population sample, not even the majority of the worldwide population, so how can their conclusions be applicable to the majority of people?

Hold on, so you are stating that everyone is, to some degree, racist? How did you arrive at that conclusion? Was it the same farcical study that you drew your earlier conclusions from?

Why would a study that lacks credibility harm my "vanity" in any way? What makes you think I have a dog in this fight? Oh right, because you unwarrantably claim that I am a "bigot" and wish to defend my "bigoted" views?

Bye...I doubt a debate with you would quench even my "lesser" intellectual curiosity.

Pardon me for a second ... are you claiming Donald Trump is rational?

LOL. Good one.

PS: He's in favor of trans* rights. So, swing and a miss on your hopes for him creating your a PC paradise (your own brand of PC of course) "everything being put right with the world."

What does God have to do with it, other then you'd need to believe God makes mistakes.

Gender is in the brain. The brain tells you if you are male or female, not the packaging.

You want to correct the packaging.

Both are determined by the brain. I find it odd that some accept one, but not the other.

Gender neutral pronouns is not a new concept. There have been attempts to bring them into the English language before.

Evolving a language is a good thing. It's sad that transgenders have to take the brunt in forcing a positive evolution of language.

It was made an issue because the "parent" (custodial grandfather) of another kid made it an issue.

The school administration had already accepted the transgender student and was working with her and her parents.

There was no issue until another "parent" made it one.

Do you honestly believe this 5th grade transgender student wanted to be outed and splashed all over the media?

They fought for Equal Treatment through the legal system.

It's hardly "Orwellean" to refer to someone by appropriate pronouns.

We used to call that "common decency and respect."

If youre on the frontier of social boundaries, youre going to run into opposition.

If youve got the brass to take on the school system and change everyone's minds(even locally), then be prepared to be put in the spotlight. Something this volatile of a subject, they didnt expect news to cover it?

POTUS made it an issue by lawfully imposing these "freedom rules" as well.

IMO I think they mean to say that as with the eastern block in the past, if you didnt say Comrade( "Tovarisch" was an imposed ideological term under the Soviets), you would be challenged for not addressing someone properly.

Its seems to be headed that way to some of us
