"I just cannot believe that the normal people in America, the people who want to just live their lives can't be allowed to do it without having this stuff imposed on them constantly."

Unless your "normal" life involves beating up transgendered people, I fail to see how this applies.

Funny. That's how I feel about Christianity.

Please, no one tell Pat the real meaning of transubstantiation.  I don't think his heart can take it.
 
2013-10-09 01:55:50 PM
He always seemed like more of a Camaro guy to me.
 
2013-10-09 02:36:01 PM
I think he meant to say an ol' "fuddy buddy".


...if you know what I mean...and if you do, tell me, I've no idea what I'm talking about.
 
2013-10-09 02:48:56 PM
I know it's not exactly in keeping with the times, especially with all the advances we've seen over the last few years, but for me, when it comes to trans, I still prefer manual.

"This stuff" meaning...being nice to people just because they're people?

// or really "not being a dick to people, just because they're people"
// I suspect most people - trans or no - would prefer "benign neglect" to "having insults, sticks, stones, fists, bottles, knives, and bullets tossed your way"

Given how threads about Transgendered individuals go on FARK, I think Pat's a pretty popular guy around these parts.

Of course, I expect this thread to be a calm and reasonable discussion on the scientific and medical basis for transgendered individuals, and an honest and frank look at the issues they face in society today.

Nah. Who the fark am I kidding.

Pat Robertson is an anagram for.

Bare Porn Tots
PNT Robot Arse  (I assume it's pointy)

I think it means something, though I'm not sure what.

Fark's views on transgendered people aren't much better.

Cagey B: Fark's views on transgendered people aren't much better.


Just to sum up for those new to this on FARK:

1) It's a lifestyle choice.
2) No one could know that till they were an adult.
3) Mentally ill.
4) Godless sinners.
5) Sexual Fetish
6) Pedophiles
7) Didn't get beaten enough as a child/teenager
8) Bullying/discrimination builds their character

To use your word "benign" - It seems like he believes it's an unjust imposition that he should even be aware such people exist.  That's the benign interpretation of his statement.

The less benign is robbing "normal" Americans of their ability to discriminate or otherwise treat the transgendered as equal citizens.

That's because you don't interact with normal people, Pat.

To be fair, does anyone know what transgender means?
 
2013-10-09 04:16:40 PM
Didn't he just say something nice about transgender people a few weeks ago and shock everyone?

Lord - Alzheimer's and schizophrenia do not go together well.

On the plus side - he can leg press 7 transgender women. Impressive at his age.

But you can't be normal without being a Christian! Our Founding Fathers said so right in the Constitution! "In the year of OUR LORD"! See? Right there in black and white! Or...ink-color and yellowed paper.  Whatever! You know what I Mean!

He looks...well, just tired.  I'll give it a year from now he'll be dead.

The best thing about Pat Robertson is that he'll be dead soon.
 
2013-10-09 04:26:10 PM
Pat got burned by a transmission repair place when he asked them to make his car go only in reverse and make only right turns. They just laughed at him. He's been a hater since then.

Well, Pattie , ol' boy, I hear ya. I also don't understand a lot of the whole transgender stuff. And the best part is that I don't need to. I just mind my own business, try to treat other people respectfully and use whatever pronouns they ask me to. I keep it simple, and we're all happier for it.

Seriously, I don't want to know about a stranger's personal bits. They say they're a guy or a gal - that's good enough for me. No need to go into details. I suggest Pat try this approach.

As a white, middle class (barely), straight man, husband, father, christian-church-attending, voter I encourage you to eat a bag of diaks, choke on the last one and die.

for future reference you may want to consider putting the (barely) in front of "middle class" as on first read through it is possible to misunderstand you as saying you are barely straight.

If you want to get a good idea of what the whole trans thing is about, I recommend one of the most recent episodes of The Joe Rogan Experience, where he interviewed Buck Angel, a trans-man (born a woman, now a man with a vagina). I thought I was very open and understanding already, but this interview really helped me understand what trans people go through growing up.

Oh, I get it full-well. I just always find it weird that "Be excellent to each other" can be so easily and thoroughly corrupted without objection from "the faithful". As if it's a burden to people that someone they've never met thinks of themselves in a way they never would.

What does someone else's gender identity mean to you? Fark-all.
What does someone else's religious identity mean to you? Fark-all.
What does someone else's marital status mean to you? Fark-all.
What does someone else's style of dress mean to you? Fark-all.

Unless you're the self-styled Representative from God's Townhouse, and I seem to recall some exhortations against that, too (Deuteronomy, and also that part of the NT where Jesus says he's not trying to undo tradition).

// my dad, for example, doesn't understand "gay pride" - he doesn't hate gays at all (doesn't hate anyone, really)
// to him, you live and let live, and why should anyone care about being "more proud" of who they are than anyone else?
// "you are who you are and I like you for it"

While I also think he's a gasbag who can go DIAF, I also very much dislike the ruling. If you have the innie bits, you use the women's room. If you have outie bits, you use the men's room. It's not that hard.

What's interesting is the more well-known female-to-male transgendered people don't just go to male, they go to cliche comic book alpha macho male.

Seriously, look at that guy, shaved head, douchey beard, beach muscles, cigar, shiatty tribal tats, shirtless, with leather pants. Congratulations, you didn't want to be a man, you wanted to be a cartoon character of what you think a man is. Freak.

Are you saying you don't know of "natural-born" men who do that? You don't know "natural-born" women who accessorize in the shower, wear pink EVERYTHING, just HAVETO HAVETO HAVETO go shoe shopping every Saturday and gab with the girls over Cosmos for Sunday brunch?

You don't have to be transgendered to pick an insane cartoon character to model.
