OK, let's go over this once again. We've talked about this in the past, but you seem to have forgotten.

"Sex" doesn't always mean "sex". For example, when you see a box on an application that says "sex", it's asking for your GENDER, not you intercourse habits.

So, someone with a "gender identity disorder" is not someone with a "sexual disorder".

You know this. Only a great moron wouldn't know this.

And in no way have I indicated that transgender people should be eliminated from the planet. I believe that people who have a gender identity disorder should be able to transition to whatever stage makes them comfortable.

Again, only a colossal idiot wouldn't know this.

You aren't looking too sharp, Kim.

Maybe she'll show up again.
But I can't say that I miss those long, run-on paragraphs that she used to post. They were impossible to read.
Maybe, she got together with "Huh", he's a "killer", too.
LOL...

I'd like to think maybe she's off trying to learn a few things, like the real story behind some of the "science" from her favorite web site and the real contextual meaning of the ancient texts that were translated to the KJV of the Bible.

LOL,

I KNEW the queen twirl would put on a show!

Now you want to separate sexuality from gender? Here we go with the denial quandary. Just like where you had to dumb marriage down to a contract.

But the topper is we both talked only about medical procedures. Only YOU judged mine as murderous. Now you excuse it?

Hypocrite.

Hey Rock

You might find this interesting.

http://nationalreview.com/article/356220/righ...

Here's an excerpt.

The lack of clarity about polling extends to actual voting behavior as well. In 2010 Patrick Egan, assistant professor of politics and public policy at New York University, compiled ten years of polling data about same-sex marriage in states that had voted on same-sex-marriage ballot initiatives. He found that public-opinion polls consistently underestimated ballot-box opposition to SSM. Egan noted that “the share of voters in pre-election surveys saying they will vote to ban same-sex marriage is typically seven percentage points lower than the actual vote on election day.” Why? Egan doesn’t know.
One might suspect something akin to the Bradley Effect at work in polling on this issue. Los Angeles mayor Tom Bradley, an African American, lost the 1982 California governor’s race despite being consistently ahead in the polls going into the election. Scholarly assessments of why Bradley lost focused on social-desirability bias on the sensitive issue of race. In particular, a minority of white voters was thought to have offered inaccurate polling responses for fear that, if they stated their true preference — which emerged at the ballot box — pollsters would perceive them as racially motivated.

In other words, when sensitive issues are at stake, people may feel pressure to give pollsters answers that sound enlightened, politically correct, or free of any trace of “bigotry”— a term that has reemerged as a club in the debate over same-sex marriage. Egan, however, claims that social-desirability bias is not responsible for the gap between polling and ballot-box results in this case, a gap that remained squarely in place in the May 2012 marriage and civil-union referendum in North Carolina. However, the phenomenon was mostly absent in the four ballot initiatives last November, when the pro-SSM side was likely aided by the ballot initiatives’ being attached to a presidential election.

Other suspects are the words with which survey questions are constructed. When polling organizations include the term “rights” in their question — as do Gallup, USA Today, and CNN/ORC — support for same-sex marriage is elevated: Each found 54 to 55 percent in favor. Survey respondents appear to react positively to words like “rights,”“freedom,” and “benefits,” and negatively to words like “ban.”

Recognizing this, Quinnipiac University’s pollsters stick to a very generic and brief question:“In general, do you support or oppose same-sex marriage?” The last time they asked it, in late April 2013 — about 30 days after the High Court’s twin deliberations — 45 percent of respondents reported support and 47 percent said they opposed. Eight percent were unsure.

I dunno, FSM looks pretty darn appealing to me:

To outsiders it makes us hard to define, but here are some general things that can be said about our beliefs:
» We believe pirates, the original Pastafarians, were peaceful explorers and it was due to Christian misinformation that they have an image of outcast criminals today
» We are fond of beer
» Every Friday is a Religious Holiday
» We do not take ourselves too seriously
» We embrace contradictions (though in that we are hardly unique)

The following exhibits the same defective hateful, racist mentality that continues to run the city of Glendora, California.

"You selfishly put your kid outside every day and let him be nothing but a nuisance and a problem to everyone else with that noise polluting whaling he constantly makes

He is a hindrance to everyone and will always be that way!

Who the hell is going to care for him?

No employer will hire him, no normal girl is going to marry/love him and you are not going to live forever!

Personally, they should take whatever non retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science."

The letter ends with a suggestion, do the right thing and move or euthanize him.

The same hateful mentality that this letter contains is also alive in Glendora, California with it's evil spreading.

Like I said, the old USSR was your perfect country. Because here in USA ALL religions are equal in the eyes of the law. What you want is the freedom to brainwash all students that we all came from the puddle of crud and all of a sudden intelligent life came from those chemicals. Now that takes faith.
