No idiot, I know you said that there was nothing special about you! That is the point! You realise you are a plain useless being don't you? If so, what could you offer anything except making a cloned superficial view of your children through the democratic ways?
Even if you could bond with your kids, all you have managed to do is develope them to be emotionally dry sods like you who have nothing special about them!
Pathetic imbecile nutjob!
Monthly reporting of Month end closing has been superseded by the 8:15 which already documents this on a daily basis.

You come on here making wild and unsubstantiated claims about other peopleís children, thought I would return the favor

Children are pretty resilient, hopefully yours will grow beyond your shallow and terrible parenting

My children are grown and successful, and having children of their own, passing on our teachings of love and generosity and tolerance.

They are special to me, and to one another, but I assume that is true of most children that do not have hateful and intolerant parents like you

No, oral sex is not sex, it is only a part of sexuality. But gays sexuality is not complete, since it does not have sex.

I can assure you that when I do someone, it is nothing short of complete.

We donít need to cater to your minority hate filled opinion anymore. Same Sex marriage will continue to become accepted in ours and many other nations.

We can just hope someday you rise to the level of a human being, become a decent person, instead of what you currently are.

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.

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.
Glad you are dealing with your health issues. The weight struggle only increases with age.

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?

Thanks.

If we had an Amendment that defines marriage as one man and one woman for the US Constitution, the court wouldn't have to bother with Walker's flawed ruling.

Hundreds of physicians, psychiatrists, and medical school faculty members across California are on the payroll of major drug companies.

Now they earn tens of thousands of dollars for speaking to other medical professionals at events held by industry leaders that make drugs such as Advair, Cymbalta, Viagra and Zoloft.

@KilMare-

Answer to your question: the transformation of aging, when you realize the preciousness of your time, the uncertainty of tomorrow, the reorganizing your priorities, the divesting of your psychological baggage, the letting go of the significance you used to put on what is the gratuitous and in the grand scheme of things unimportant-things that tend to happen when the abstraction that has been your mortality most your life finally becomes that BIG TRUTH it is.

As to the rest, I'm firm in my identity and actually look at my lesbianism as the most spritually liberating factors of my life and I see it very much as a gift. I've always been "out", never engaged in any self-loathing and never had the desire to be anyone other than who I am.

I'm not going to engage in any arguement about it, whatever might be true within the boundaries of your world view certainly doesn't have any validity in mine and certainly doesn't seem to be worth my time and effort confront them as there is nothing to gain by your advocacy and nothing to lose by your opposition.But thanks for a small insight into your existence, always appreciate learning about mu fellow humans in all their nuances.
