I think it's great supporting people who want to dress and act with freedom but you can't choose to identify as a different gender just because your preferences align with classic appearances.

It's frankly impossible to identify as a sex/gender you have never experienced being. How would anyone know what it feels like to be a woman if they have never in their life been one?

Literally zero knowledge of what that feels like.

There are so many aspects that define women that no amount of surgery or hormones could produce.

I'm all about living your truth but let's not live someone else's truth and call it our own. Maybe a different word for men who want to appear feminine and women masculine.

I don't see how it's beneficial to allow this as some sort of right people have. Its not!

Being transgender is Not ok.

I don’t accept homosexuality, transgenderism, non-binary, gender fluidity, or any other dumb genders except male and female.

You can’t change your gender! If you are a male you are a male and if you are a female you are a female. There’s no changing that! It’s unnatural. They are whacked out flooptards who have no sense of critical thinking!

But I wouldn’t be cruel towards them. It’s wrong to kill people or refuse to serve people.

Is being transgender okay? Should we support the transgender movement?

No and no. The fact that people would change their bodies and identify themselves as something they’re NOT… I believe is too far. I get they’re humans. It’s not my place to go and say, “You can’t do this, you can’t do that.” I’m just saying that I don’t accept people who are gay, transgender, non-binary, etc.

Transgender people aren’t accepting themselves for who they are. I don’t support people like that. They want to change themselves, their bodies, their person. I can’t accept people like that AT ALL. And to make unhealthy choices such as gender reassignment and changing your gender identity is something that I don’t like.

In conclusion, I don’t support gays, I don’t support transgenders, I only accept real male and real female heterosexuals.

Hello L:

"Okay" is not relevant... Being FREE to be who you want to be in this great land of ours, IS relevant.. Do I support people who want to live their life the way they choose? I DO!

Then you support the white, male, Christian Conservative who stands for the flag and thinks ANTIFA is a terrorist organization and that Kaepernick is a dick with ears.

It's not about who they choose to be, it is about who God made th em to be. I will still love the person, just not their decision to rebel against what Gods word says and how he has created make and female

Your conception of love is seriously fucked. I've got no interest in being 'loved' by anyone the way you 'love' people, and anyone else with an ounce of self respect won't either.

Stop justifying your prejudices by invoking your god. Even if your god exists you're not god yourself. You're not up in the godhead. You don't have someone direct channel or special channel. You don't know how god made anyone. Check that hubris. You're just another mortal ass human who can't own their own prejudices.

It's a person's right to be transgendered. What's not okay is giving sex changes to kids before the age of consent and demanding everyone else guess their identity or refer to them by some weird dictionary of pronouns that we don't want anything to do with.

How anyone else raises a child under the advisement of licensed medical professionals really isn't any of your bloody business. You're certainly not more qualified; you obviously don't even know that the standard treatment for gender dysphoric children is to administer non-altering hormone blockers until the age of consent.

You must be pretty fragile to get this worked up over being asked to add a few more words to the thousands already in your vocabulary. Of course, we both know this isn't really about the words. You feel put upon because people are resisting the damaging gender constructs you've casually practiced throughout your whole life, and protecting those constructs is more important to you than making a low effort gesture of basic respect.

Of course it is, and it should also be the business of Congress, how these "professionals" got their licenses in the first place. These professionals, along with the issuers of these licenses, belong in jail. Child abuse is child abuse, license or no license.

What makes it a person's right? Why should this be something that we must allow people to go against Gods law

Because not everyone believes in God's law, and some people have different gods, with different laws... just because you believe in a certain God, that doesn't mean everyone else does...
