It could be argued that sure, that is why I was thinking it would be something that lawyers have to fight in court. She was having sex with a person she thought was a certain gender, she chose to have it with that specific person (which isn't the same as the previous example) but she wasn't given all of the information to make an informed decision.
Basically, if a woman engages in sex with someone who she thinks is a man, and it turns out it was actually someone born a woman but had a sex change, could the woman say she didn't consent to sex? (I'm just using this as the scenario)
I have no doubt lawyers would be sparring on this one.
In one hand she DID consent to the act of sex. Regardless of what the person was originally she did agree to engage in sexual conduct with him.
On the other hand, "he" is not the person that she thought he was. If he didn't give her the option to make the decision for herself as to whether or not she would be comfortable with it then one could argue he was fraudulent and she didn't have the information to properly consent.
It's an interesting question so I think it would ultimately be something courts would have to decide, I can see both sides to it.
As it was explained to me in an interview once, Employers want someone to say they want a career instead of they want a job. The mindset of that is, if you are looking for a career you are looking long term, the money they put into hiring you is worth it. If you are looking for a job it's more of a short term work decision and may not be worth the effort or time to train you.
Please believe me I'm not even saying this to be mean but if you are going to quit the site because someone is trolling or putting a swastika symbol on their icon.......it's probably best if you do.
Again, I'm REALLY not saying this to be mean but.....this is the internet, we are all faceless and some people love to offend others, and some people have a different belief (however vulgar one thinks it is). You can't let it get to you.
I don't really think it's a matter of intolerance, it could simply be something they weren't prepared for or expected which could weird them out to the point it hurts the relationship or their desires to start a family the natural way (if the relationship goes that far) could supersede the desire to continue on.
I think the partner has the right to know for two reasons really, if they aren't ok with it then it saves the two of them from committing time and effort in a relationship, if they are ok with it then the fear of the other person finding out after their heart is invested in the relationship, isn't there.
I was actually asking myself those questions as I was typing earlier. I think people react differently to different situations and I think in a situation that isn't considered normal yet, a person has the right to know up front to make decisions to proceed or halt the relationship. Starting it with what could be considered a lie isn't going to bring a strong foundation to it.
I don't think it would bother me if I really liked the person, I would be curious as to how things worked but I can't say I'd know for sure what my next steps would be since I'm not in that situation. I would be more upset if I'd been dating the person for a while before they came clean because it would have denied me the option to really think about it before investing time in the relationship.
To bring another point to it, say I'm dating someone I think was born a man and our relationship is getting serious and we start talking about living together, starting a family..... It's almost a betrayal if they let it go that far without letting me know the natural way isn't going to work. A person has the right to know what they are getting into and being honest up front saves time in the end.
I can't honestly say no. I really can't. I think it would bother me more that they weren't up front about it and it's really going to depend on how long I'd been dating the person. Ultimately I'd like to think in the end it wouldn't really matter to me but I would prefer honesty so I can make my choice, however I think if their personality is great and I'm really attracted to them it probably wouldn't matter.
So long as the Democrats don't put someone as horrific as Hillary as a running opponent, the Democrats will probably have it in the bag.
I wonder if the DNC hadn't edged Sanders out if he'd have won and I also kind of wonder if we knew then what we know now of Trump....would he have still won? Just kind of curious, he's lost much of his support....still.....Hillary....
A LOOOOOT of people are calling out his horse riding "skills". From the picture, (granted it is one captured moment)
1. There is no saddle pad. It's needed so that you don't hurt the horses back. It also seems like the saddle is either poorly fitted or simply too far back.
2. It looks to be a yearling and he's being WAY too rough on it.
2.5 A grown man shouldn't be riding a yearling, he needs to be on a full grown horse. Young children ride yearlings as they are lighter.
3. He's holding the reins wrong, he needs to hold Western or European, from the looks of it he's just holding them.
4. He's jerking the bit too much and can hurt that horses head and mouth.
5. His legs shouldn't be ahead like that, he isn't riding a motorcycle. When you ride a horse your legs should be more in line with your shoulders to help control bounce and ride.
I am also not an expert, but I have had riding experience and even with what little I've had I know he doesn't.
It genuinely seems like he has zero riding skills, just wanted to show up looking like a cowboy to fit the American image and ended up looking like an idiot.
