I know... I'm so heartbroken that the new resident troll has taken all her toys out of the sandbox and won't let me play anymore. Whether she reads it or not isn't really relevant. That other people will read it and understand how full of her own bodily waste she is, is much more important to me. But then again, I'm a big mean anti Christian bigot so...



Peter...you know what that means?

I think you and I need to head over to the sandbox filled with demons. It's where we belong after all.

And it's okay, my love.

I'll share my godless, science toys with you!

Ignore them, RP.

Stay strong and beautiful.

The transphobia, misogyny, and memes are strong in this thread.

Attack helicopters in 2017. Lul.

For the single guys this makes uncomfortable, just make sure you ask every girl you date whether they are transsexual - how else are you gonna know? It will also immediately increase your chances of getting laid lol D:

See anytime you have an inability to distinguish natural order. Or feel that as an individual you
should be allowed to pervert nature to any desired
preference of your own?

That's a mental disorder.

So in essence, using contraception, antibiotics, and other medical interventions to subvert the 'natural order' is a sign of mental illness.

Okie doke. Good luck with that.

No luck at all, people using those items are making responsible decisions and fighting sickness.
How is that a mental illness?

You do understand that pregnancy is a natural condition? You've heard about birds n bees, yeah?

You do understand that using antibiotics is really enhancing the body's ability to fight natural infection?

You do understand that education is fighting natural stupidity? D:

How does being content with my body and at peace with my maker classify me as a bigot? Also contraceptives and antibiotics dont pervert.
Mental disorders do.

It doesn't..

Giving a negative Classification to other people based on race, religion , sex or sexual orientation makes someone a bigot...

Literally by the definition of bigot..


Assuming it is a mental disorder.. and I think it is safe to assume it is. Couldn't it be a mental disorder buried so deeply within a persons ID , that no amount of pharmaceuticals nor Jesus can fix it...

Hell we can't even successfully diagnose it, let alone actually cure it...

So what do we do with people who have non-violent mental disorders we can't cure???

We humor them....

If some autistic kid wants to dress up and pretend to be a ninja, do we force him to dress in slacks and beat him over the head with the fact he will never be a ninja????

Or do we humor the kid and as long as he's not hurting anyone, we buy him some foam. Nunchucks and let him pretend to be a ninja???


If it's a mental disorder, then being mean to a trans person is equal to being mean to an autistic person.

Let's think about "mental disorders" for a moment.

Would you say that someone talking to an individual that no one can see is a disorder?

How about participating in weekly ritual cannibalism and blood-drinking?

What about people who believe they can literally cure disease or change the weather by mumbling words?

How sane is that crap, eh?

Yet, we know it as prayer, Holy Communion and belief in miracles.

I'll take alternate genders anyday.

Maybe we ought to punish the Christian Fundamentalists? Knock some sense into them?

I'd be content if they'd just stop doing that crap to us.

Here's the thing. Despite all the "common knowledge" of people bleated here and elsewhere every day, I never chose my sexual orientation or my gender identity. So the only "choice" I have is to live authentically or live a lie. Yet, over and over at least three or four times a week, we see threads here promoting the idea that some with a differing gender identity or sexual orientation (that's always right there just beneath the surface too) is insane and should be treated as such.

Yet, if I make totally rational comments pointing out the absolute pathology of most religious beliefs Fundie Christianity particularly, how quickly would I be (rightfully) shouted down as a bigot ... even when, by our standard definitions of "mental disorders" any religion you care to name is basically bonkers.

A mental disorder in my opinion is a mistake in the wiring of the brain, but wouldn't necessarily be violent...

You would have the full spectrum...

Thank you!!!

I think that might actually be an original thought.. I've never heard anyone else frame it that way.

Wow I'm surprised this thread is still going to be honest. Thanks for all the support from those of you who are allies. As for the haters I've got something for you in my pocket, it's real nice I got it at target 😉

Being honest about ones misgivings on an issue is now considered hate ? Now that seems like it's coming from a hateful agenda. Nice try .. we can see who the haters are .

It feels that way even if people don't mean it. It's like when people asked me if I could drive or read Braille. I always laugh at that but then again it seems that they think less of me. That I am not a "complete" and "normal" person.
If people refuse to learn and understand anything about it, that shows their true colors.
