PonceAlyosha: MannaxOne: Got nuts... go to the boy scouts.
Got no nuts... Go to the girl scouts.

Quit using your children to push your social/political agenda.

Fallacious logic that last bit. Kids deserve equal access etc. Why no gender neutral scouts though? We can call them Swansons.


While we're at it, why don't we let them buy beer and cigarrettes? If 7 is old enough to decide on your sexuality, it should be old enough to have other adult responsibilities.

I love the one article the person linked to about the identical twins, one of whom identified as being female. The description of the one who remained male...."he was all boy, liked Spiderman, action figures....." So what type of toys you like defines your gender? I always hated dolls and girl type toys. I was always playing with trucks and boy toys. I always liked sports, caught a lot of crap 30 some years ago for pushing to get girls athletic teams. Hell, I joined the military long before it was common for women to do so. According to what some of you are saying, that makes me male. Not a chance! I prefer being the superior gender.

Why would a bunch of hicks in Louisiana care what a Troop in Colorado does?

The only people they're hurting with this nonsense are the girls in their own Troops.

duffblue: I had hope for fark before I realized it's just another hugbox for people who think trannies are something other than mentally ill.


Awww are you upset that not everyone shares your views about gender? I'd be interested to know if you think that homosexuals are mentally ill.

Genevieve Marie: No one's suggesting anyone have surgery as a kid, but they should be able to dress and present as whatever gender they identify with.



Well, that's certainly one option, OR...

we could take a razor strop to t'em every gd morning and every gd night until they put down the gd dolls and start playing with Hot Wheels like normal little boys their age!!!!

In my day, we had a cure for "gender identity disorder." First round of treatment was sending 'em out to the tree in the front yard to bring back a switch!

The self-loathing and emotional torment is where the masculinity comes from!!!

Girl Scout Promise:

On my honor, I will try:
To serve god and my country, to help people at all times, and to live by the Girl Scout Law.

Girl Scout Law:

I will do my best to be:
Honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do,
And to:
Respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.

/Fark 'em if they can't abide by the Law.

Benevolent Misanthrope: A Colorado-based Girl Scouts troop's decision to admit a 7-year-old transgender child this fall has prompted three leaders to resign and dissolve their troops.

As The Christian Post is reporting, all three of the troop leaders were affiliated with the Northlake Christian School in Covington, Louisiana.

Soooo, a Colorado troup admits the kid, and that makes a bunch of stick-up-their-ass Louisiana Christians think it's their farking business and take the entire experience of scouting away from the girls in their troup. Got it.


This just in: Christians are a bunch of demented f*ckwit busybodies who tend to cut off their noses to spite other people's faces. Ric Romero reports.


This.

Over in two.

CanisNoir: Does he/she have a penis? If so, he/she should not really be camping with the other girls. That said, the three baitches who quit are being just that, stupid baitches cutting off their nose to spite their face and hurting their own children in the process.


I don't know if you realize how bitterly cruel your first statement here is. Try to imagine you've got something attached to you that you have hated from the very moment you understood what it was. Try to imagine years of that one little shred of flesh dictating every circumstance of your life. Imagine years of knowing you will never fit; that you can never be the person you are when you close your eyes; that you must live a life of deceit and misery all of your days because you happen to have this disgusting, vile, embarrassing thing between your legs, even when every other aspect of your being screams to be something else. Then read your post again.

You answered your own question. It's not about liking certain toys or playing sports. It's just your preference.

Someone wanted a girl and ended up with a boy. Maybe she had a still born daughter before having him and still farked up from it.
/It would be funny if the boy turn out straight and end hating his mother for this bullshiat.
//That kid don't have the ghey voice. My cousins had theirs around 5 and are ghey to this day.

Silvara: Also, those troop leaders aren't even in the same goddamn state. fark em, let them leave.


Central Ohio here. The Girl Scout troop that my daughters had just started going to when this went down, was basically torn apart when a majority of the families attending decided they could no longer be a part of the GSA.

The "tolerance" argument is what people use when they can't think of anything to say that makes sense. If your argument is "you are wrong because you are intolerant," then you are wrong.

EvilEgg: lohphat: EvilEgg:

I'm all for tolerance, but gender is, with rare exceptions, a very easy thing to determine. If yours isn't easy then joining an organization that relies on it may not be your thing. Try Campfire.

Gender of the mid is different than gender if the body and even then there are grey areas. There are a lot of these people. It's not *that* rare.

Whats important here? Beng with others of similar mindset or similar plumbing? Kids at that age don't bathe together.

Important for who? The transgender person or the others. If the others join an organization only for girls, do their opinions matter? Why not just join a group where it isn't an issue?


Forget it. Your logic is no match for the hyperbole. The GSA must be wrong because the BSA did something something something. And Christians! Grrr Christians! Facts! We have facts based on stories we heard from our neighbor's cousin's grocer!

How about "it's none of your farking business, dickwad?"

If the girl is happier, if her parents are at peace with it, if the GSA is accepting of it, and if if the girls and parents of the troop she belongs to have no problem with it... then how about you take your farking nose out of their business and put in a goddamn book for a few minutes and try to knock some of the steaming pile stupid off your farking noggin.

ftfa Archuleta, who also confessed to having difficulty switching from male to female pronouns when discussing her child, told ABC.

Heh, more proof it's the parent having the gender identity issue, not the kid.

But you still identify as female and that's the point. It's only a matter of what you prefer to identify as, male or female. Someone can identify as a girl and still not like stereotypically girl things as you have shown.

A good soldier obeys without question. A good officer commands without doubt.
Blessed is the mind too small for doubt.
To admit defeat is to blaspheme against the Emperor.
For those who seek perfection there can be no rest on this side of the grave.
The difference between heresy and treachery is ignorance.
Knowledge is power, guard it well.
An open mind is like a fortress with its gates unbarred and unguarded.
Innocence proves nothing.
Success is commemorated; Failure merely remembered.
Even a man who has nothing can still offer his life.
Only in death does duty end.
No man died in His service that died in vain.
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.
Beginning reform is beginning revolution.
Educate men without faith and you but make them clever devils.
Success is measured in blood; yours or your enemy´s.
The man who has nothing can still have faith.
Burn the heretic. Kill the mutant. Purge the unclean.
It is better to die for the Emperor than to live for yourself.
Fear denies faith.
Foolish are those who fear nothing, yet claim to know everything.
Brave are they who know everything yet fear nothing.
Happiness is a delusion of the weak.
All souls call out for salvation.
Life is the Emperor's currency, spend it well.
A suspicious mind is a healthy mind.
Cowards die in shame.
Faith without deeds is worthless.
True Happiness stems only from Duty.
The blood of martyrs is the seed of the Imperium.
Heresy grows from idleness.
There is only the Emperor, and he is our shield and protector.
Truth is Subjective.
Damnation is Eternal.
Know the Mutant; Kill the Mutant.
To Question is to doubt.
He who keeps silent consents.
Prayer cleanses the soul, Pain cleanses the body.
Death by thy Compass.
Zeal is its own Excuse.
Work earns Salvation.
Without him there is nothing.
Only the Emperor is all.
Hatred is the emperor's greatest gift to humanity.
Victory needs no explanation, defeat allows none.
A small mind is easily filled with faith.

[Simmons yelling incoherently in the background throughout scene.]

Grif: "What the hell is going on here?"
Donut: "You know what? I honestly have no idea what's going on. I think everyone in this organization is absolutely insane."
Grif: "How'd you get them to resign?"
Donut: "I don't know. I just included a transgendered kid."
Grif: "Wait. That worked?"
Donut: "I guess... Was it not supposed to?"
Grif: "I don't know... We never even thought to try that."

They don't care at all. They're lazy, and attention whores. They got exactly what they wanted - they don't have to do anymore scouting with their kids, and they can martyr themselves for drama.
 
2011-12-22 07:14:49 AM  
That is so sick that some children are different. I hate different things. They're so weird and different. His parents are wrong for not punishing him for being different. I can only hope that the other kids harass and punish this kid for being so farking different, so he will be ashamed of it.

I had to stop reading, there's no way a FARK transgender thread can go this smoothly forever. I will quit while I am ahead.

In the UK the Scouts Association accepts both Girls and Boys.
 
2011-12-22 07:20:01 AM  
Uh... so the criteria for gender now is "whatever one says"?

So be it. Can that also be true of the person I'm screwing? Regardless of whether they have a penis or not, their gender is whatever I say it is. This paradigm shift will help me out lots in certain parts of town I like to visit.

God Bless the girl scouts.

This mother needs to be arrested for child abuse. She couldn't be damaging this poor boy more if she beat him daily. Children shouldn't be used as a tool to promote your own deviant ideas.

syrynxx: I wonder how the parents made the decision between transgender and plain old gay. Just because a little kid says he wants to be a girl isn't enough, or we'd be up to our ears in astronauts and firemen and ballerinas and princesses.


I dunno...that sounds better than our current situation, up to our ears in currency traders and Kardashians...
