The fact is hunk, children in default family situations already have MORE assistance then children in the natural family setting.
All of this begs the issue; At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Gay couples are a direct defective contradiction of the primary goal of evolution. Literally 'unmarriage'.
All of the necessary and deserved rights and protections are available through civil unions.
Moreover, if homosexuals want validation of their orientation, establish your own relational identity without imposing an imposter relationship on marriage. Even a child can see the difference. Especially if one couple is mom and dad. The only natural ones they will ever have.
Glad you are dealing with your health issues. The weight struggle only increases with age.<quoted text>
Not much of "hunk" these days as "m'lady Natural" my legal domestic partner decided that if I really valued our life together I'd deal with my health to insure I was around a few more years. Not only am I down to 140 pounds from th 240 I'd been for years but that womyn of mine had me traipsing the side of a mountain yesterday in snowshoes.
Anyway, opinion are like buttholes etc, really bored with opinions that my life and living have blown the hell out of the validity of anyway, but a lot more interested in your personal gender identity and what you chose to do with it...., a lot less radical, not politically focused, and really getting beyond the entire idea of my biological trappings being the definer of my quintessential being. Really, what is the inherent basis of gender identiy, what's left when you are removed from the arbitrary definition mandated by social convention? Indeed, what is it to be human, especilly with the possibility to genetically manipulating humans for other environments might mean our phyiology is radically different than our present form in which we impute our human identity. Be interested in how you dealt with such issues in terms of your ambiguity.
I'm bored with opinions too, that is why I focus on posting facts. It is that 'gorilla grip' on reality that is the primary reason I have thrived with my mutations.
As to your curiosity, I'm happy to comply. I have the DNA of both a male and female (genetic chimera), however, my vagina is none functioning. My parents decided to raise me as a male (initially unaware of the DNA condition). In hind site, that was a good choice.
In appearance and behavior, I am masculine, but interestingly, lesbians tend to hit on me. When I am around a lesbian couple, it has created some 'difficult' situations... The best I can relate it to is how many women are very attracted to gay men.
Frankly, while I have serious genetic issues, I think homosexuals have a much more difficult cross to bear. Sexual attraction is very strong in most cases. I assume my brain DNA is male, and have a healthy heterosexual attraction. Having said that, as difficult as it is, I think the better option for homosexuals is to pursue as best they can a heterosexual lifestyle.
My experience with transgendered is that sex-change is rarely satisfying. I think that is a key reason main stream medical facilities stopped performing the change. Hence, I have the same opinion about dealing with the condition.
My assumption is that you are very close to transgendered if you are as butch as you indicate. What do you attribute your 'mellowing' to, if I understand you correctly?
