    Dude, he holds in contempt any household that has a (single or married) heterosexual mother, heterosexual father and heterosexual children. Or even the defense of such a household. Don't even get caught up in it.

    Three moms or six dads or everyone being raised by a gay 15 year old is his vision of ideal.

    Liberals and neo-faggots have been trying to redefine the family for the last 20+ years and, even though they have managed to gather a small cult following, their efforts are failing.

    Well, in actuality he is neither.

    In fact, you don't even have to put on dress/makeup in Caifornia. ALL you have to do is DECLARE this and you can go into women's restrooms/locker rooms.

    As a younger person I would have definitely, perversely, claimed that I was a woman inside a man's body to go peep. (I am more mature now and moral as well I guess).,
    ENOUGH!

    Exactly!! Because no MAN can have a baby. Because they are men. Because they don't have a womb. OR ovaries. Or any of the other stuff.

    That whole episode drove me nuts.
    ENOUGH!

    I think we do individuals a massive disservice by performing invasive and gender-altering surgery, when a few years later they are like "whoops, I was wrong."

    I don't care about any of this. What I care about is that while people have a right to alter their bodies in any way they see fit, our medical professionals also have an obligation to "do no harm." I'm sorry, but genital mutilation to the degree of a sex change is harm... unless, it is corrective due to a genetic or hormonal defect. I don't think it's valid to use invasive surgery to compensation for psychological issues. As a society, we are harming people.

    We are talking about surgery. Difference is taking off make up, wearing mens clothing and cutting hair doesn't permanently disfigure a person. You are making a lot of assumptions. If a dude wants to wear drag and walk around, that's his business. He should still use a male locker-room/restroom though. If the same dude goes to a doctor and says "look doc, can you cut off my penis and sculpt a vagina" then it's a medical procedure and that doctor has an obligation not to harm his patient.

    The OP was about presentation and acceptance in presentation. That's what I was mostly interested in commenting on. I really don't see why it matters who presents as what. I don't understand the obsession with bathrooms either. People aren't supposed to be lewd in bathrooms regardless of sex. It's against the law. Men who want to go into women's restrooms to commit crimes haven't been waiting for transexual nondiscrimination laws to take effect before pursuing their interest. If I were a woman, I would be more comfortable with a six foot tall drag queen watching the door than a sixty year old lady.

    Sure, but I was in a side conversation with GY :)

    In ancient Rome, you could crap in a bucket in the middle of the street. But today we live in a time with gender-specific sensibilities, and notions of privacy and modesty when it comes to bodily functions. The "obsession" is that we live in a society with these cultural mores. Do you live in a different society than the rest of us?

    People aren't supposed to do a lot of things. Personally, I'd rather stick to gender-segregated bathrooms. If you do not prefer to do this, please use the family/handicap restroom that are pretty much available anywhere next to the two standard options.

    Look, I get it. You reject cultural norms. I don't have any problem with this. But you can't expect the rest of the country to shift what they consider normal to align with what you consider normal... any more than they can expect this of you.

    I don't find this surprising.

    I don't find this particularly interesting, I found the spin-off conversations a lot more engaging.

    First of all, if a man slaps on a dress and some makeup he's not really recognized as a woman. That's an exaggeration.

    Second of all, Crocodile Dundee is an American stereotype of Australians. But I'll say this... I reckon if go to the gold coast and drink some VB, drive a Holden UTE and watch the AFL with my Aussie mates while we bag on the abos, I'd be far more accepted as an Australian than a man who walks into a bar wearing drag is accepted as a woman.

    It makes a great deal of difference when you have to share a bathroom.

    So, when you accuse me of pandering, bigotry and superstition, you're allowing for the best possible motive? I can't help but wonder what the worst would be.

    A man who lacks a penis is not a woman. He's a democrat.

    It is not equality of opportunity that destroys societies, it is equality of result. Marxists seek to undermine standards. They do that by inverting norms and corrupting institutions. In the case of women's rights and gay rights, nobody here objects to equality before the law, which is the basis of a free society. What we do object to is the eradication of standards in order to accommodate the bizarre and unhealthy.
