[Re. transgender people]

Other conditions:

Transracial. You’re white. But you FEEL black. Your grades and SATs aren’t good. You fill out black on your college application. You get in. You get called on it.
“What, but I FEEL black on the inside. Therefore, I’m black.”

Transspecies. You’re a dude who is arrested for public urination. Solution: You’re a dog. You don’t arrest dogs for peeing outside.

There is no end to this.

I read a story somewhere about organic cotton. Organic cotton is expensive. Cotton growers don’t want to grow organic cotton because it’s too expensive to grow and process. But they like that organic cotton fetches more in the marketplace. They want to use GMO cotton. Roundup ready cotton or whatever they come up with. Their solution: change the meaning of organic.

Stop changing the meaning of words to make the world worse for most people. Men are men and women are women. It’s scientific fact in the chromosomes. But the government wants to decree otherwise. Let’s change the meaning of marriage so that crazy people can get privileges. Let’s make it impossible for consumers to buy organic cotton by defining it out of existence and enriching Monsanto in the process.

No more. Our enemies are sick and evil people.

A scientific fact in the chromosomes? Oh, how I'd love to introduce these people to all the many varieties of intersex bodies. But considering the sheer stupidity shown in the post, I don't think it would do all that much good anyway.

So what about chromosome combinations other than XX and XY?

10/1/2010 7:22:11 AM


Or the chromosomes that are XY, but the person with that looks female.

10/1/2010 7:29:38 AM


God forbid (no pun intended) you be forced to tolerate people who act differently than you. You're just a bigot.

Gender or race shouldn't be important enough to make such fuss about. We don't make any fuss about being read-headed or blond, and you can change it with the help of a bottle of dye.
Why is it important whether you are a man or a woman?

On our SAT-equivalent tests, there is no Race box to fill in.

@ Swede

Yes, but non-whites do get special scholarships and easier admission in universities. It's called affirmative action and is actually quite racist.

10/1/2010 7:52:53 AM


Scientifically, it can be proven that you do not get 100% male or female humans that often

10/1/2010 7:55:32 AM


Men are men and women are women. It’s scientific fact in the chromosomes.

Well, no. There's a whole cascade of things that have to happen to push an embryo toward one gender or the other. One error somewhere in the chain, and who knows what happens?

Shiny mirror is shiny... I always thought you guys were the masters of word redefinition...

10/1/2010 8:00:38 AM


If only there was some sort of real-world equivilent to 'transracial'.

Like you know... hmmm... biracial?

'No more', says the Freeper. Yeah, it's all going to stop just 'cos you say so.

Not happening, dude.

10/1/2010 8:03:08 AM


What the fuck? A freeper complains when an american corporation acts like an asshole? I did not expect to see this. But he would probably scorn the federal government if they tried to actually punish Monsanto.

10/1/2010 8:09:09 AM


That's odd. I thought fundies LOVED changing the meaning of words. For example, freedom of religion meaning only the freedom to express Christian beliefs, persecution being defined as criticism, a bunch of homophobic and xenophobic bigots calling themselves the 'moral majority', liberal meaning "anyone I disagree with", being an 'evolutionist' suddenly and automatically making you an atheist, and Deist (as many of our founding fathers were) suddenly turning into staunch ultra-conservative Christian.

Doctor Whom

I love how people present themselves as the ultimate authorities on something about which they know zilch. I don't intuitively understand what it's like to be transgendered, but I have enough sense to STFU and let transgendered people tell it for themselves.

10/1/2010 8:36:38 AM


Further proof that fundies don't know shit about science.

Interesting how they call anyone who they disagee with their enemies.

Why do I think that his first example shows his racism? And that last line is a complete exaggeration.

Crazy people already have privileges ... Internet privileges, unfortunately.

10/1/2010 9:14:21 AM


It's a lot more complicated then just XX and XY, there are all kinds of odd things that can happen.

Most things are more complicated then you idiot Freepers think.

10/1/2010 9:34:46 AM


If Monsanto is for gay marriage, I'd say that's a laudable position for a transnational to take.

What's organic cotton?

10/1/2010 9:34:48 AM


"Yes, but non-whites do get special scholarships and easier admission in universities. It's called affirmative action and is actually quite racist."

Waaah, I'm a persecuted white male!!!

But seriously AA, you obviously don't understand affirmative action--go look up the court cases related to it, like Grutter v. Bollinger and Gratz v. Bollinger.

10/1/2010 9:45:39 AM


You don't arrest dogs for peeing outside, but you also don't accord them human rights. Not a good direction to go in.

How the devil does allowing transgender individuals to construct their gender independently of their sex make the world 'worse for most people?'

10/1/2010 10:18:05 AM


What enemies?

10/1/2010 10:22:46 AM

If black people have different chromosomes, I would like to see citations about that. Honestly.
