Is it possible we could just shoot everyone involved in this into the sun?

durbnpoisn: For anyone that didn't read the article. He is "legally a man" now. But only legally. I don't know what that means in reality.

It means that her delusions were acceptable to the state but not her uterus.

So (s)he accepts the societal definition of a bastard and doesn't want the children to be bastards but doesn't accept the society's thoughts on 'a woman who wants to be a man, but also wants to bear children while wanting a divorce from the woman (s)he married and then moved to a state that bans their arrangement based on the local laws they moved into residency under'.?

bhcompy: SnarfVader: There is no other legal document needed. His birth certificate is the only legal document he needs to prove he is a male. I don't care about his children's certificates. I don't care about his parentage. I don't care about anything else in this case. They don't matter. For the purposes of divorce, when it comes to whether this is or isn't a same sex marriage, only the field of sex on his birth certificate should matter. If it says male and he is married to a female, it's not same sex and the marriage is legal in Arizona. There is no legal conundrum. It could not be simpler and the judge is just grandstanding. That's all the further I'm going to say on that.

And that's the difference between you making arbitrary decisions and the judge examining all legal documentation. Judges don't have blinders like you do, at least not the kind you do.

cryinoutloud: Wow, I see a lot of "concern" here over some subject that has nothing to do with any of us, and is none of our business.

Some of you should be as diligent about your own life as you are about judging strangers.

You're an idiot.

beautifulbob: But "he" was declaired male legally by way of fraud.  As evidenced by the fact that he later gave birth and is the biological mother to three children.  So the state can claim that they cannot divorce two people who are not legally married.

The law should make sense as much as possible.  It does not make sense to call someone who is female a male and the reverse.  It also does not make sense to dissalow two females or two males to get married.

I know, I'm expecting the impossible.  Law will never make sense.  But it shouldn't be this screwed up.

How about the first one to lose custody of the children and pay 18 years of child support and alimony gets to be declared male?

proteus_b: what's even more confusing, if this chick "became a man" and "married" her girlfriend, why wasn't the girlfriend the one who got pregnant? why did they choose to impregnate her (sorry, "him")?

Maybe she wanted to become a "attention man-whore."

It means it's a woman who is surgically mutilated and chemically unbalanced.

Grant the divorce already and quit hashing over his sex. At least one state (Oregon) has already declared him a man. Why does Arizona have to throw a wrench into it?

That said, the man-giving-birth angle the media hyped up was not some sort of miracle. If a MTF actually is able to give birth, that would be the medical marvel.
