I don't recognize future penitentiary inmates as an Administration

I think people who are offended by another person trying to be happy in a way that doesn't directly involve them should keep their mouth shut and grow some self respect

America may never recover from Trump

Trump is just using politics of hatred hatred hatred

Right after Kashoggi was cut into pieces with a bone saw Trump WENT OUT OF HIS WAY
to call for more violence against Journalists. Trump shoudve been removed long ago for all the hate he spews out his tax theft filled sack of DNA

Ugliest human America ever produced

FWIW..no scientist here but you can see Testosterone quantities in males. You can see "Androgynous" males who without any alterations have too little testosterone to be fully male and not enough to be fully female << I would feel horrible if I forced that person to never get to make their social choice.

I think if they don’t exist legally, it can be the based for insurance non-coverage for transgender related medical issues and for re-instating military ban of transgenders

forget the idiot in the white house. the question at some point we will have to ask is this. Is there anything we see where it matters what gender you were born as when it comes to legal matters on a federal, state, local level? If the answer is no. well then it doesnt matter so why make a law where it doesnt matter. Now if there is a legitimate reason someone can think of where it would and should matter. then this even coming from the idiot in the white house may actually make legal sense down the road.

I don't mind it so much but I do sympathize with trans people. I feel we could for wait this one out I think while we work on more pressing matters. If we could snap our fingers and fix it this instant I would gladly go for it but at the end of the day we need to have priorities.

Republicans look like they're coming home to Trump. According to 538 the last time Trump was at 43% approval was March 2017. (These estimates are noisy of course so take it with a grain of salt, but still.)

Saudi crown prince bragged that Jared Kushner gave him CIA intelligence about other Saudis saying 'here are your enemies' days before 'corruption crackdown' which led to torture and death

Quote:
Sources have told DailyMail.com that the prince – known by his initials MBS – has been boasting about his close relationship with the president's son-in-law and senior adviser, and the intelligence which he has told his circle Kushner passed to him.

The crackdown on 'corruption' in the Saudi kingdom was led by MBS and began in November, days after he had met Kushner for talks in Riyadh.

As a parent of a transgender son, I suspect i know a lot more about the reality of that than you do, and while I will refrain from saying what I really want to tell you, I will point out that you have absolutely no credibility here, especially on the subject of ideology. Or science. Or facts.

What’s following this move by the administration you think? Transgender medical coverage by insurance and right to join military come to mind but prob just red meat to hype up his ‘evangelical’ base pre-election

Try some research. Try understanding. Try critical thinking. Try reading anything but the Wingnut Gazette. Now, if you have a desire to learn, here is a very brief read:

Check the Science: Being Trans is not a Choice.

I only see this as mattering in regards to athletic competition. I dont think it's fair if a Mtf is wrestling against a F. Stuff kinda like that. In reality gender is just a term that describes how someone sees themselves. People identify as buildings now a days so its all free game. When they person is born all that matters is what sex they put on a birth certificate, anything after that is that persons choice.

It's a culture war issue to gin up their base before the election. And the extreme majority of this administration and all the judges they've appointed are straight white males. That's who matters to them. Their core supporters are non-college white males. They don't give a (bleep) about anyone else - not transgender, not gay, not women, not people of color, not non-Christians. If you look at it that way, it makes sense. Of course it's vile, but what else is new.

On a more hopeful note, Congress could reverse the damage by modifying the civil rights legislation by adding "gender identify" to list. Another reason to elect Democrats.
