(NBC Bay Area)   ACLU up in arms because students of a California high school were told they could only wear "gender appropriate" clothing for school pictures and prom. Did no one think to just get the guys to wear kilts in protest?   (nbcbayarea.com) divider line 211

mafiageek1980: codergirl42: mafiageek1980: codergirl42: Texas frowns on transgender marriage. I guess if your married to a dude it'll be okay since your genes would be considered compatible in Texas.

yeah, I'm married to a bio-dude. I plan to keep my parts until after I have kids. Then I might start doing some "chopping", lol.

I hope your husband is cool with it. :)

He is. He's very open-minded about it and loves the way I look in men's undies ;)


Good, hope it all works out for you. :)

BarkingUnicorn: Farce-Side: I saw LGBTQ in the article, and I'm used to seeing LGBT.  Whats the Q for?  Questioning?  Quixotic?  Quonfused?  Honest question, no troll bro.  Just can't figure it out.

The latest version is LGBTQIA:  Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex, and asexual.

Have fun googling.


The latest version is D, for different.

codergirl42: You sound bitter.


Yeah, that's what they've been telling me. I have been eating more pineapple, though.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: ciberido: BraveNewCheneyWorld: The fact that someone tends to agree with Freud's assessment of homosexuality doesn't make one homophobic.  The fact that you're quick to label those who don't agree with you so negatively only shows that it's you who are the intolerant one.

"You're a bigot if you don't tolerate my intolerance!"

Yeah, sure, whatever.

I'm not intolerant, I'm just unwilling to agree with your delusional thinking.  There's a rather large difference, and I'm sure you understand it, but you have spin that needs spinning.


I understand that you think there's a difference, but then again there used to be segregationists who didn't consider themselves racist.

They were on the wrong side of history. So are you.

It is?  I thought they were tired being labeled "different."

First there is a mountain,
Then there is no mountain,
Then there is.

It was in the latter half of the 90s when a then family friend sat in my family's living room and proclaimed that he wasn't a racist, he just believed that the Bible clearly taught that the races were supposed to be separate. It was quite the educational experience for me because dude and his wife assumed that because my parents were good conservative Christians that they'd agree that race mixing was a sin. We had no idea they were so ridiculously racist because they never brought their racism up because they assumed everyone agreed with them. But no, no siree, they weren't racist, race mixing was just unnatural and everyone knew that and the only way someone would race mix was if they were rebelling against their parents.

In other words, same tune, different lyrics to what we hear now about gay people.

The false-consensus effect is a real girly dog.

Wayne 985: I notice you left the "Q" out.


She left all six of the Qs, the A, two more Bs, three cyrillic letters, four Hebrew letters and a couple of squiggles from the Voynich manuscript out. Why does she hate so many people?

Marine1: What the transgender community needs to do is institute a "tell". Like the thing where gay dudes wore one earing in their right ears. That way, everyone else knows that they're transgender and can adjust their sensibilities accordingly.


That would be handy. Maybe we could all wear little badges, like stars. Pink for queers, gold for jews, and so on.

My (extended) family business was recently looking for new accounts, and my dad's cousin's branch was absolutely appalled that we were considering a bunch of "New York Jews" to run our finances.

Now, I'm not saying they're racist, but ever single time I've been to their McMansion the tv was running FOX News unattended.

codergirl42: Wayne 985: codergirl42: I'm pretty sure catholics like to make that distiction, usually people like to be specific about thier religion like "I'm a baptist" or "I'm a methodist", we do group them all under christianity but these people will make sure you know they are the beilivers in a particular brand of christianity. Anyways it's more apples and oranges than anything and your trying to take my point to far. People label themselves, it's a matter of respect to refer to them as the labels they prefer. Yes you can have umbrella terms to group them together but there are still distictions and with the LGBT community that distiction is necassary for visibility and inclusiveness.

I notice you left the "Q" out.

Jesus, sorry, I grew up with LGBT. Thanks being pedantic.


Now you sound like me.
