So many of these stories have turned out to be nothing more then a Case of Fraud,
perpetrated by the person claiming the offense.

Since I am just a spectator with no Dog in this Race I can say…
That I’ve decided to look at all these Case’s as nothing more then a Case of Fraud till proven True.
I’ve found this to be the best bet, and if one were to wager on such things it would indeed be the “Best Bet“.

You are lying, badly, that you don't want to enforce that "opinion" on others, but in any event trash like you are becoming irrelevant.

Oh, and the kkk has an "opinion," too. That doesn't mean they're somehow magically absolved of responsibility for their bigotries.

No, if you didn't feel invested here you would have similarly noted that str8 people claim "back injuries" in bus accidents and "emotional distress" over slip and fall accidents all the time.

Also, it is hardly a stretch in this society that some trans person would be harassed in public.

And if you read the story: She claims the slur is on a printed receipt. That would be a pretty funny way to go about making up a claim. Since it's so verifiable either way.

Evenly applied skepticism is good, but why not just admit you're another stu pid, probably-lyin-fer-jaysus bigot?

Wrong I'm not the one making demands on individuals and threatening peoples livelyhood like the LBGT nazi's do. Oh and the black panther party has their opinion as well. Everyone has their own opinion. Apparently you don't respect anyones opinons but yours and like minded individuals,it's called intolerent.

Again, you didn't say you're skeptical because, "people like to cheat." You singled out an entire category of claims for extra scrutiny...while lying that you have no investment in this issue in particular.

You do.

As for the numerous cases of made up or very sketchy hate crimes claims - they should be condemned. No question about it. They're very damaging. Like bogus claims of rape or bogus claims of n word use or bogus claims of rodents in fast food....

Okay lier fer jaysus, tell me who said you hillbilly bigots can't marry, adopt, be protected from arbitrary firing, serve openly.

People who object to rank bigots like you are not the same as the bigots, despite your f ed up, tee baggrz logic.

Oh, and you didn't correct your earlier lie about your not blocking marriage equality. Obviously you fundies and tee baggrz have done everything possible via harassment, defamation and disfranchisement to block it.

That was the sufficient answer. Sexual orientation and gender are separate. You conflate and confuse them. Because you are a both deliberately and unintentionally a stu pid pos.
YOU said 'she' may be straight. I asked you a question:
Ok, a trans woman was born a male. For 'her' to be straight which sex would 'she' be attracted to? Males?

Still no answer.

Not in this country. It's gay sex here. An estimated 4% of the population is responsible for just about all of it here. Yes, straight people get it too. Bisexuals get infected and pass it to straight people.

Because, Cletus, the sick bigot's post was attempting to defame homosexuals on the basis of some disease (which is overwhelmingly one of heterosexual transmission.)

So naturally a person doing that would similarly defame those who smoke and get cancer....

Except they don't do that - because they merely have a homophobic fixation. It's not really about disease, well, except for that of homophobia.

Similarly, those who rail about the buybull and homosexuality never equally rail about the buybull and those who covet unrepentantly, a _Commandment_. So again, the only thing it's about is a pure, psychosexually twisted hatred of lgbt people. Not about the buybull.

No answer will suffice for a christardate troll. The answer has been supplied.

Sexual orientation and gender are separate.

Someone who has transitioned to being a female could then be attracted to men or be attracted to women or be attracted to men and women.

Why don't you ask you mother where babies come from and then all your non question questions will seem less vital to you?

By the way, only abject racists just right off every other country on the planet just so they can make some failed, bigoted point about HIV. The fact is the overwhelming percentage of AIDS deaths and AIDS cases have been via heterosexual transmission. The fact that you wish to erase African people doesn't change this fact.

Your way off base Phyllis. Your putting words in my mouth or making sht up.
This country is split between the 2 trains of thought. For and against gay marriage. Just because someone is against something doesn't mean they are a bigot or homophobe. That's the extreme left coming out of you. Hell Bozo was against gay marriage,Hittlery was against gay marriage, drunk Joe B was against it. They apparently "evolved" at least in public that's what they did.
You show your intolerent of people because they are against gay marriage. Doesn't mean they can't change and learn to accept it. I except the fact that people are going to do what they want. Frankly I could careless what people do,just leave me out of it and don't force your way of life on me.
