I don't have much opinion on it, but I don't think it relates to gay and lesbian issues, or civil rights issues. I think it's a totally different thing.
Yeah, it all sounds very superfluous to me. This isn't a civil rights issue; it's a CHOICE if I've ever seen one.

Yeah, I'm not sure quite how we got onto this from gay marriage. As far as I'm concerned, when it comes to marriage, the sex of the parties involved is entirely irrelevant. If two people want to get married, two people should be able to get married. Limiting marriage on the basis of sex is downright discriminatory and shouldn't occur in any society that would like to believe it is tolerant.

I just think that the government should stay the hell out of my uterus. I should be the only person that has any say on whether or not I want something growing inside it for nine months.

You called me narrow-minded? Can I print this out and put this on my wall? Amazing.

I don't know how the male and female brains operate, I'm not a neurosurgeon, but I can guess they're wired pretty much the same way. It's not human freedom or choice, it's a chemical imbalance. Do they have the right to change genders? That's not for me or for you to say for that matter. I'd equate "basic human freedom" to many other needs, not switching parts around.

Should all gay people then switch genders? Is this what you are saying?

In America, transgenders have latched on to gay marriage. It's always about LGBT rights, when really the T doesn't fit with the L, G, and B.

I can hardly believe you're even writing this right now.

Son of a bitch, I'm sick of these dolphins.

YLB, any chance of Hot Rod in your future?

I was just about to drop a line from that movie before I realized no one here has seen it.

I don't think it is unnatural at all. Something inside their heart and mind lead them down the path. If you deny someone the right to choose it is against human freedom.

It is all built on prejudices towards one's sexuality so I think it is very much related to gay and civil rights issues.

I seriously can't believe you're even doing this. It'll own, though.
