So I guess it's okay if we just cut off his/her little wang now then. After all, he/she was born wrong according to his/her mother, so let's get this kid the surgery he/she needs to make him/her right.

/none of the transgender heroes would have a problem with this, right?

Theaetetus: How is expressing an opinion about someones 'private medical decision' which has been blasted all over the news, and thus no longer private, intruding into someones life?

Just because the news media are a bunch of assholes doesn't mean we should all start throwing stones.


You didn't answer the question, I didn't ask if we should start throwing stones or not, I asked how opinions on a public forum once the party has made an issue specifically not private constitutes "intruding into someone's life".

Oh, he's certainly entitled to give his opinion. He has every right to do so. He's just an asshole if he does, because it's not about him and his opinion. He's not in this family, he's not a doctor. He's just someone angrily ranting and spewing bile about people he's never met.

Many would argue that at the point you hold a press conference and whore yourself out to the public, for whatever reason - noble or not - then you give up the moral right to say that no one should be able to have an opinion about you.

And technically, your response to him is just you angrily ranting and spewing bile about a person you've never met.

halfof33: buck1138: You think that the story of a transgender child joining the GSA isn't going to get out to the press on its own? The Media flocks to anything sensational like this because it brings ratings. Especially in areas where yokels are disgusted by people that are different than them. You don't think that all 7 year olds are attention whores and that this one is somehow different because they are transgender? I'd say you need to take a close look at your own bigotry. You think an organization dedicated to the equal treatment of gays and lesbians is attention whoring? Get over yourself.

So it looks like we agree then that the kid, the mom, the GSA and the scout leaders are attention whores? GLAAD gets a pass, I guess, I can live with that..


How are the GSA attention whores. All they did was have an inclusive policy.
The kid is an attention whore but it's because she is a kid, not because she is transgendered.
The mom could be debated but it seems like she's just sticking up for her child which is what most parents would do.
The scout leaders I'll agree with.
 
2011-12-22 11:23:24 AM
I'm wondering if this mother was willing to act as scout leader herself. That was always the way it worked with girl scouts around here. If you didn't like the volunteers' efforts, you were free to volunteer for leader anytime. They were always short on leaders anyway.

That said, kid is put in bad position here, and the GS troop are asshats. I think mom might be too. Poor kid. Even Cher waited until Chazz was an adult to lop his penis off.

Theaetetus: anarchisthippy: Sorry, but there is no such thing as a 7 year old transgender. They just don't exist.

Again, the many, many, many, many, many doctors writing the DSM disagree with you. And I'll trust their word over an "anarchist hippy" regarding medical conditions.


You mean the same doctors who throw around diagnoses like autism and ADD like it's candy? Yeah, their word is really, really reliable.

Look, I know seven year old kids. I had a couple of them once. They don't know shiat. They barely recognize the differences between boys and girls at that age. They are learning, but they just haven't reached that point yet. To say that they can identify as being someone of the opposite sex is just flat out ridiculous.

Also, the mother makes it pretty clear that this is a matter of her choosing. She is the one who "feels" he was born in the wrong body. Are we at the point now that it is intolerance for us to even question a person's motivations when they are presenting their seven year old boy as a girl and claiming that it is his decision?

CapnBlues: Look, if you want to be on the wrong side of history, that's your call. You can be counted amongst the likes of Gov George Wallace, or you can recognize that bigotry is on its way out and give up your prejudices. Or I guess you could waste your time arguing minor points on the internet with a complete stranger. All I was trying to get at is that the world is changing, and it's not changing in a direction that favors bigotry.

I can't shake the feeling that I'm talking to a college sophomore libertarian. Merry Christmas, buddy. Take care.


Your quiant view of the world that bigotry is actually "on the way out" rather than still quite prevelant and just swept under the table more is heartwarming in the "i'm a noble college freshman sociology student" sort of way.

But despite your idealism you should substantiate your claims for good orders sake, and also maybe use a little more finesse than the heavy handed intolerant label of everyone who doesn't embrace the theory of a gender continuum to the same extent you as a bigot.

Youngsters actually begin developing strong gender identities long before middle childhood. A child's awareness of being a boy or a girl starts in the first year of life. (new window)

Theaetetus: Actually, sounds like the GSA is doing the right thing about their rogue scout leader, and the child will learn a valuable lesson about tolerance. Hooray, everyone wins!

... except the bigots, of course, but who gives a fark about them?


I'm guessing the child who, regardless of the outcome of this scenario - if she remains a she or changes her mind (as apparently is common) by puberty, will now have her name in a very public and very permanant and searchable index and will likely have abused heaped on him or her at some point.

But hey, she/he got to sell cookies door to door when they were 7, so I guess that counts for something,

IrishBlunder: So, your high horse? Get off it. Some parents out there don't even know that asthma isn't contagious. And *most* children aren't psychologically equipped to deal with gender issues even if their parents are, so have a care. This is a little *boy* with gender issues and even at the current level of societal tolerance for such things there are still going to be problems. CanisNoir was correct and dealing with the fact of the situation and not freaking out at the peener.


OK, let me get this straight. Because YOU PEOPLE aren't psychologically equipped to deal with the fact that binary physically indicated gender is a fantasy, we should ... what exactly? Go away? Be invisible?

And unless you're trying to argue for SRS surgery for young children, your swimming example is pretty damn stupid. There are lots of ways to manage that situation. On the scale of daily challenges TGs have to deal with, that doesn't rate.

Perhaps more than any other factor, the subtleties of every child's relationship with his or her father and mother-and the attitudes of the parents toward each other and toward the child-will influence his or her gender-related behaviors.

Random thoughts on being a volunteer: I wonder if I'd disband my girl's soccer team because a transgender was trying to play on it. Being a man, I'd probably be fine if she/he played like a boy.

BillCo: 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.


Usually when these issues surface it is evidence of abuse already having occurred, so it's too late.
 
2011-12-22 11:33:28 AM
Just think of all the great fun this kid could have on camping trips!

"I'll show you mine, if you show me what mine should look like."
"Let's play lesbian. I came with this really neat strap-on, so it'll be easy."
"Oooh! Those are really pretty panties! Can I try them on?"
"It's my brother's. He told me I could borrow it if I brought it back all wet and slippery."

Theaetetus: So, now you actually are admitting that people will intrude on this kid's private life. Which is it?


It is both.

Someone expressing an opinion on an online forum is not intruding on a kid's private life.

A classmate 5 years down the road who finds this story and starts abusing him/her in class - that is intruding on the kid's private life.

And even if a person expressing their opinion on an online forum WAS somehow an intrusion - both scenarios were made possible because of the mother's press conference.

No problem. The sad think is it took me like 2 seconds to Google that enlightening piece of medical literature but there are still people on here that will just spout out their "gut feeling" on how children really work based on this one time they saw a kid at the grocery store instead of actually doing research on the subject.

Not saying it right, but, Yes, this 7 year old may have repercussions later in life because his loon of a mother decided to take his private sexual development into the public forum. But she is making the choices for him, and she should do what makes her feel good, right?
 
2011-12-22 11:39:24 AM
If you have a male sexual organ, go to Boy Scouts. If you have female sexual organ, go to Girl Guide.
A bit more complicated if you have both (or none)... but other than that it should be simple.

If you don't like your gender, surgically change it. Too bad if you are too young to do it. Everyone of us live with something we don't like at some point in our life.

Being unwilling to play along with someone's fantasy world doesn't make one a bigot. You people overuse "bigot". It does not refer to anyone who won't accept your tortured version of reality. There is nothing in the article saying that the kid is something other than XY. He's a boy no matter what he feels like. If you want to say he's a feminine boy, that's fine and correct. Anything else is just a lie.

Theaetetus: Sure. While I don't have a medical degree, the proposed DSM-V includes gender dysphoria in children, and advocates social and legal transition to the preferred gender as a valid response. And those guys all have medical degrees.


Likely not. Psychiatrists have MDs (usually), but psychologists do not. Both are involved in the use and modification of the DSM.

buck1138: osafer: buck1138: osafer: buck1138: God forbid you feel discomfort from the way another human being lives their life, right? Just as long as I don't have to see it. Isn't that how bigotry hides itself these days?

Why is it when a liberal is losing an argument it always goes back to hate. I never said one hateful thing towards this 7 year old.

You said that this person's personal identity does not belong in the public realm. You basically said go be transgender somewhere else. That's not hateful?

No, what I said is a mother should not be attention whoring a 7 year old personal development in the public realm. I couldn't care less what an adult releases about their life to the world nor do I care if your are gay, straight or anything else....

Shall I keep my 7 year old black child out of your white school for fear that I might be attention whoring?


I never said one derogatory comment towards any group or minority, like I said if you disagree with a liberal you must be a racist, sexist or some other label. Tolerance, one day you guys have to look up the definition,

How the hell is a 7 year old going to know they are transgender? Someone had to have put that in his head.

The My Little Pony Killer: So that's three whole troops of little girls who get to miss out on scouting just because their troop leaders felt the need to act bigoted toward a 7-year-old. Lovely.


A 7 year old in a completely different state and Troop, I might add...

It's hilarious watching some folks in this thread get all worked up about a 7 year old transgendered kid being allowed into the Girls Scouts.

The Troop, in question has no problem with it.

So why do so many of folks in this thread have a problem with it and, more importantly, why do they care what a Girl Scout Troop in Colorado does?

The Puritans really did a job on our national psyche regarding sexuality and gender, I tell ya...

Lets all be honest, how many of the people who are against this individual joining the girl scouts are against it because it's 'icky' show of hands please.

In other news, I love threads like these. They allow me to isolate and ignore Fark's bigots. Buh-bye feeble minded losers.

I know a guy who has been gay since he was at least 5 yrs old. Even in kindergarten, he acted and felt differently than all the other boys. And it wasn't related to sexual desire.

So the know-it-alls here can fark off.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: Marcintosh: Can't figure out if it's hate disguised as fear or fear disguised as hate
...
Mensa doesn't hate or fear you, you just didn't meet the criteria. You'll get over it.


There is no more arrogant and misanthropic organization in the world. My parents tried to get me active when I was a kid, and it was my first exposure to horrible people. I would sooner watch NASCAR than I would ever spend another moment at a mensa meeting.

Ultimately, I don't care what's between someone's legs unless I am or am planning to do something with what's there. Same with bedrooms. From what I can see, homophobes etc., are pervy.
