DarnoKonrad: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transsexuality_in_IranCongratulations Pat, you've about as progressive as the Ayatollah
Diogenes: Vaguely reminds me of a guy who used to hang out at our (now gone) local bar. Guy was hoot, and fun to drink with. But he was kind of a homophobe, and was amazed when I came out to him. He wasn't negative, per se, just shocked.Then, later in the evening he said, "You know, even though I don't get the gay thing, you know what's HOT? Brazilian transformers! I would totally do a Brazilian transformer!"Now, shouldn't his own feelings and attractions alone serve as evidence to him that people come in all varieties?
Diogenes: So, God makes mistakes on His assembly line?
fireclown: gecizzle: Sin... the whole concept is retardedI disagree. There are acts that are evil and harmful. Being gay just isn't one of them.
Theaetetus: Actually, this is consistent with what some people have been saying for years - a lot of homophobia is really insecurity about gender roles, hence the "who wears the pants" or "which one's the girl" comments. If you change gender but still fit into that rigid dichotomy, then they're okay. However, if you're androgynous, or a non-stereotypically feminine woman or a non-stereotypically masculine man, then it outrages them. After all, then how do they know who to oppress?
doubled99: Newsflash-a large percentage of christians believe homosexuality is a sin. How many times can you be outraged by this?
pkellmey: Barfmaker: Didn't he say that a while ago? Sounds familiar.Yes, he has made this type of statement or something equivalent several times in the past, so it isn't very surprising. It surprises a lot of the people who tune into him, though.
