Some people were born with big ears; that doesn't mean taxpayers have to pay for your elective cosmetic surgery.

Having taxpayers pay for your abortion is just as wrong as having them pay for your sex change operation and medication.

Same sex marriage means more wasteful government spending, more intrusive regulations and higher taxes to pay for the whole mess:
In shift, Medicare would pay for sex-change operations
March 29, 2013
For the first time since 1981, when it dubbed sex-change operations "experimental," Medicare has opened the door to covering transexual operations, adding to the growing list of operations that would be allowed under Obamacare.
Acting on a new request, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said it is starting a new analysis that could lift the spending ban for sex-change operations with a goal of making a decision two days after Christmas and on the eve of Obamacare kicking in Jan. 1.
A 30-day public comment period just opened on the proposed "National Coverage Determination."
"Surgical Treatment for Gender Identity Disorder, formerly referred to as transsexual surgery in 140.3, is currently noncovered under the Medicare Part A and Part B programs. The existing policy, which became effective in 1981, states that transsexual surgery is considered experimental," said the notice just posted on the CMS.gov site....

Well, since it IS medical treatment, how do you get around that? Do you suggest that everyone, including yourself, receive reinsurance coverage only for the basics, and NEVER for reconstructive surgery of any kind?

Because THAT is what "sex change" surgery is.

You can't suggest such restrictions for others unless you accept it for yourself and your family.

And some people are born without a nose, or with twisted limbs, and you believe they should just be on their own.

I saw a story awhile back about a little boy with half of the top of his skull deformed, so it looked like his head had caved in. You believe that HE should pay for the surgery to correct it, not his insurance, or just live with it.

That's not how it works, and fortunately, YOU don't get to decide.

If he tried to understand the simple truth that a transgendered person can be gay, straight, OR bi, and it was completely independent their gender, I think he might break out in hives.

One thing homosexuals and transexuals have in common, they understand the importance of gender. Same sex marriage would remove the importance of gender from the institution of marriage.

Same sex marriage is bad because it harms homosexuals and transexuals.

Uh, let's see; the reason is to go to war and to get laid? Is that your BIG truth revealing the order of things and duty? No wonder we CREATED religion & God to control dumb twotts with blather and pomp that would keep them in place and force them to present children to the priests for rapture games.6363

False inference. For example, two gay men get married. Neither would marry a woman. I'm quite sure gender is important to both and their marriage.

Your hero was a mess:
"...Milk's continuing campaign, run from the storefront of Castro Camera, was a study in disorganization. Although the older Irish grandmothers and gay men who volunteered were plentiful and happy to send out mass mailings, Milk's notes and volunteer lists were kept on scrap papers. Any time the campaign required funds, the money came from the cash register without any consideration for accounting. The campaign manager's assistant was an 11-year-old neighborhood girl who joyfully ordered the volunteers to work. Milk himself was hyperactive and prone to fantastic outbursts of temper, only to recover quickly and shout excitedly about something else. Many of his rants were directed at his lover, Scott Smith, who was becoming disillusioned with the man who was no longer the laid-back hippie he had fallen in love with...."
well said, they never want to show the full picture on these so called hero's. Milk was sick.

republicans, like southern Baptists, believe that women are inferior to men. sadly, Sarah Palin didn't help disprove that.

I didn't make the decision, therefore, I was never wrong. Bush was wrong, his advisers should be in jail. Why does it scare you so much to talk about the Seals that were set up and killed? Anytime something is said about obama, it's back to Bush..LOL
