Most women can't carry the same mass as far as a man, and some jobs just call for brute strength
You're racist against women!
I want to know why no one has been on the cover of NYT or Washington Post DEMANDING that women receive equal treatment... when it comes to doing pushups, situps, runs, or rucks. A piss poor performing joe who "becomes" a jane is instantly a freaking stud (studette?)
"Do you ever fantasize about being a member of the opposite sex?" used to be a fairly standard psych eval question. Folks USED to think that at some point you need to stop dressing up and pretending you're a fairy princess. How many men under investigation for major crimes have suddenly decided that they're women? Jenner, Manning, any more? An indicator???
I put a Vespa sticker on my Silverado. I demand that it be legally recognized as a moped so I don't have to license it or carry insurance.
The treatment for trans people, in the absence of surgery and hormones, is social transitioning which is only meant to make someone feel more comfortable in their own skin. Living and dressing as the opposite sex for a year is where most people realize they can't actually hack living as the other sex but those who live "full time" should be allowed to be profoundly weird so long as they pay their way and pay their taxes, I don't see any crime.
No, no crime, other than those committed by those who decry the efforts of others attempting to understand and treat the pathology. Any researcher attempting such an atrocity would be accused of a hate crime. No other psychological condition is so bereft of treatment options. It's a travesty.

Are you referring to a specific group?
My issue with the "surgery-as-necessary treatment" is that every guy thinks he's an 8-inch-guy born in a 4-inch-guy's body, we just call it "small dog syndrome" or something like that. It's just cheaper and more practical to live with it rather than actually getting the surgical work done.
It has nothing to do with cost, it's just not normal or natural to go mutilating your body in hopes of being something you'll physically never be. So far as I know, there's no way to go back in time and change the number of X and Y chromosomes you were born with.
There's a guy who has undergone massive amounts of plastic surgery and applies hundreds of dollars of skin whitening products each month in attempt to make himself an elf from middle earth. Guess what.... he's still human. He'll never be an elf.
At some point you have to stop playing dressup. You're not a princess. Suck it up buttercup, go find something useful to do with your life, like being a husband and a father and contributing to society. Stop trying to make 99.9% of the population think that they're all somehow wrong and .1% is somehow morally superior simply because they're playing dressup.
My son is mildly autistic. He has a hard time separating fantasy from reality. There have been times, days on end, that he refused to admit that he is not actually batman or bruce wayne. That doesn't actually make him batman. It just means his logic still has not fully developed.
SEVEN years of voting to repeal and repubs can't even come up with a bill that can pass even with control of all branches of government. Cheeto Jebuz is such an amazing leader, he just makes the bestist deals!
Yeah, uh, that's the swamp (that Trump has been complaining about, and campaigned against) in action. They're a bunch of ineffectual buffoons. Just repeal it already. Let's go back to the relatively affordable (in comparison) insurance we had before Obamacare forked everything up.
Yes. The usual grievance industry groups. ACLU, SPLC, GLAAD. You know...groups that used to stand for something, but are now just engaged in making statements on social media and filing lawsuits against other groups, individuals, and laws that dare to inject some sanity into the world.
I'm aware that ACLU GLAAD, etc complain about certain electroshock and hetero conversion therapies and such which do not seem to be effective according to the patients themselves. I'm happy for those trans people who are able to "pray it away" if they're happy with it but apparently many are not able to make that work.
I'd complain about electroshock therapy too. I thought that sort of stuff went out of vogue with the head shrinks a long time ago. In fact, that sort of thing would make me angry enough to throw a drinking fountain through the window and run away.
Sort of my point. Short of faith healing, there's no option. When the topic of a modern medical solution is broached, those involved are chastised for having the audacity to imply that there's something wrong with a man who wants to be a woman so badly that they're willing to mutilate themselves, and still never actually be a woman. No, it's apparently morally repugnant to treat the condition...nah...let's treat the symptoms by indulging the victim's self-mutilation fantasies. I just find it sad that we spend billions on a pill to make our dicks hard, but no one is allowed to attempt to devise an actual modern medicine treatment for this condition for fear of being the subject of a bevy of self righteous twitter tirades and condemnation by the aforementioned acronyms. Not to mention being ostracized by their 'right-thinking' peers in the medial community (who don't want to be guilty by association or lack of publicly displayed outrage).
I think if the science suggested a possible pharmaceutical solution that was strong enough to interest investors to front the $1B for an FDA trail, you might get customers taking that pill for the rest of their lives. Sure, the standard opposing lobbies would complain but you could make enough money to drown their complaints out.
Bear in mind this is the police force that deliberately under reports assault and rape because their political masters insist it isn't happening. I must assume an honest cop in London is in deep crud with his bosses and assigned to the worst job. And his reports thrown away.
Or how the Left supports Sharia law and defends the people murdering their other base membership? Who cares if the Gays are being Murdered? It's more important to virtue signal that you are an appropriate atheist, a hater of Christians & Jews, BUT NOT MUSLIMS!
Whatever ruins Civilization so the Rule of Mobs and the New Kings is Good.
When Bill Maher beotched about silly Christians, who believed in ghosts and miracles, he was a Hero. A Brave Man Who Spoke Truth To Power. ( even though the Pope has never been in power here )
But let him point out that maybe a slave owning culture that considers women property and murders gays in broad daylight to cheering crowds might have some incompatibility problems with the Modern Atheist Enlightened American....... He's a racist pig.
Modern atheist...atheists by and large behave like most any religious person...they believe they're enlightened, everyone else is wrong, and want to push their brand of nothingness on everyone else. The same bigotry and self righteousness is present under a different banner.
That said, anyone not promoting the downfall of western civilization is fine by me...
It would sure be nice if everyone practiced or didn't practice whatever it is they do or don't without making a thing of it.
Atheism is rather boring and clinical in its purest form. It lacks an inherently higher purpose. I find it more emotionally satisfying to borrow the best of the local religion. You might also call that "Christian Lite" where believers believe in a heaven but not a hell.
I like to think that Muslims that come to the US adopt a sort of "Muslim Lite" religion, in that you can't *actually kill the infidel* you can only harass them politely but it is clear that some take a more fundamental, terrorist view on that.
I usually find emotion and faith to be at opposite ends of the moral spectrum. Emotion says, "if it feels good, do it". Faith says, "hey jackass, like it or not there are consequences to your actions".
Emotion says, "take the easy wrong". Faith says, "take the hard right".
Edit. Learning not to put faith in emotions is a long, continual process. I'm not 100% there yet but the longer I live, the wiser (I hope) I become.
OK if Cheeto Jebuz is actually really a good businessman he will get this done right? The reason you guys give for him being a good head of our country is his deal making ability right? So he better be able to get this done right? If he can't does it not show he isn't as great of a business dealer as Y'all give him credit for? And oh yeah medical liability costs will get so much better...
