    Can we also talk about what Miley Cyrus is doing? I love reading about C-lebrities and their lives...

    No, he'll not. He will always be a 'he' but, for sure, he'll look
    as a woman. And if that makes him happy, well, I am happy
    for him.

    Well this does involve the left.

    Now that gay marriage has been sold to the American people can Progressives sell transsexualism as being normal as well?

    First they sell reproductive dysfunction as normal with gays and now they are selling the notion that wanting to mutilate your normally functioning body is normal as well.

    Can the masters of propaganda pull it off again? Can the media say that such issues are a personal issue, on the one hand, and then continually shove it in our face as normal while brow beating those who may disagree?

    The PC police will be out in full force as always, wanting to crush "bigots" who dare challenge the notion that all of this is normal and should be embraced as such. People will lose their jobs, NBA teams, NFL teams, or worse over this I'm sure.

    What do you suggest is done about the grave (potential) threat of transsexuality being considered "normal"? Or is this just one of your usual aimless rants lamenting the superior moral character of others who don't wish to tell adults what to do with their own bodies?

    As I remember him, Bruce Jenner won the gold medal in the decathlon at
    the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. I lack interest in his later associations with
    American celebrities or his place in American pop culture.

    And it seems to me that the most important thing about someone's
    gender identity is what's in one's mind, not what's between one's legs.

    It's a question of how to help people like Bruce. It is also a question of how people who dare challenge conventional Progressive thinking are mistreated.

    But what is between his legs is working. What is not working is between his shoulders.

    "It's a question of how to help people like Bruce (Jenner)."
    --Whodey

    What does Whodey mean by that? Does Whodey oppose Bruce Jenner
    undergoing, *if* that's his choice, a legal medical procedure that thousands
    of other people already have done?

    Congratulations whodey, I think you can enter the Guinness Book of Records for the most pathetic instance of self-victimization in the history of the Universe with this contribution.

    1) I suppose we can "help" him/her by letting him/her have his surgery without pointless moralization about it;

    2) Progressive thinking does generally say people should be able to do what they please with their own bodies. I guess people who say differently will just have to deal with the "mistreatment" of being told they are wrong.

    Do you feel surgeons should not be allowed to perform this procedure, much like doctors should not be allowed to help in assisted suicide?
