    Why is it that if an American man slaps on a far-too-tight dress and some poorly-applied make-up and goes around calling himself a woman, he immediately becomes legally recognized as a woman, but if he were to slap on a Crocodile Dundee hat and starts speaking with an Australian accent, he would never automatically become legally recognized as a citizen of Australia?

    Because Australia has an army and women don't.

    Why do you care? A couple of days ago I took my mom's dog to the veterinarian. A woman walked in, signed in, and then took a seat in the waiting room. I glanced over, and then looked again, wondering, "Is that a transexual?" And then decided it was none of my business.

    Seriously: What difference does it make? If the clerk at Kentucky Fried Chicken is a drag queen or a tranny, as long as he or she is doing the job well, clean, and complying with all codes, does your business entitle you to an opinion of her appearance, biology, or character?

    Because you don't choose your sex. The XY chromosome is written on every single cell of our body before we're even born, you don't get to pick which one you want. No matter how much surgery a transgender has they will ALWAYS be the gender they were from birth, of course there are actual hermaphrodites which are the exception not the rule and I would suppose that the whatever reproductive organ they have the more complete of is the one they should go with.

    Sorry, but autonomy clashes with gender

    Oh yeah! Well just because a fellow can bench 400 pounds and has a crank dangling between his legs doesn't mean that he can't identify as a woman. Maybe sometimes a fellow gets the menstrual cramps real hard.................

    I think to be legally recognized as a person who is now a woman, the man has to get it chopped off. So if he gets rid of it, fine by me. If not, he is a man in a dress.

    So if a man has lost his penis in an explosion or medical condition but dresses like a man then you are OK with it, but if in some convoluted twist of fate he realizes that he's always felt female, it's serendipity?
