Oh, excuse me...not politically correct enough for you? TOUGH.
Not human enough. Your statement is seriously lacking in a basic understanding of the human condition.

No human being is an IT. That's how Nazis thought about their victims to aid them through the psychological torments of perpetrating genocide. By dehumanizing men, women, and children, it gave them permission and justification to engage in bestial savagery.

We, I and my fellow Americans, are not that sort of people. Not as long as I have breath in my body and the ability to communicate, we're not.

We may be afraid, but we'll face that fear and conquor it. We may be lagging behind the wisdom of the times, but we'll catch up. We might find it easier to turn our faces to the wall and ignore the struggles of those around us, but we won't. We'll face down ignorant bigotry like yours and make it unacceptable in OUR America.

Sraighten up. Learn to be polite. It costs you nothing and goes a long way toward making your audience receptive to your message.

To paraphrase Foxworthy: You might be a redneck if - you think Political Correctness is an oxymoron.

I don't get to watch Oprah either and I don't think watching Oprah is a luxury. I personally don't care for her.

I work too but when I am at lunch I read the news. This story has been run into the ground. I bet people in Bolivia are reading about it.

anyway the the thing is this; no matter how much love and compassion you raise your kid with it is not going to make your child immune to the cruelty of the other children when they find out about your parents

No child is immune to the cruelty of other children regardless of who their parents are. If it isn't their parents it is their religion, hair, siblings, money, clothes ...the list never ends.

Well, the sad part is that you are the clueless one -- and terribly behind on your science and knowledge of what sex and gender are.
Which probably explains why your post appears to have been written by a moron.
(not real fun having the names hurled back at ya, is it? How'd you like to be called the pronouns of the opposite gender?)
You are so right. I apologize. Those who think a man can get pregnant are not morons. They are brain surgeons. Again, I am sorry for the misunderstanding. I did not mean to offend anyone.

That thought has crossed many peoples minds. But if people would truly study and learns about trans people and perhaps makes it a point to talk to some, then I believe that thought would fade away.

Jeez people, all that really matters is this child will have parents that love him or her, the child was WANTED not an accident as so many kids are, this child will be loved and protected all of its life, AND as a bonus, it will be open minded, something that is SORELY needed in this society, regardless of his or her family dynamics, the point is the kid is loved. I am sure there are PLENTY of kids out there that wish, or in some sad cases wished they had that kind of good fortune.

Get Over It!

Semantics: I used *appears*.

Morons: no, not brain surgeons. PhD's and Doctoral candidates. Literally.

Pronouns: wrong ones.

High horse: I'd much rather lift you up and get you one of your own.

But hey, some folks like to walk in the mud.
