Boi or grrl? Youth culture testing the boundaries of gender identity and roles
Lincoln Jornal Star/ The Associated Press ^ | MARTHA IRVINE

Posted on 10/02/2005 7:02:25 PM PDT by sit-rep

CHICAGO — When it comes to gender, Alex Polanco is not easily pegged. Some days, he wakes up in the morning and feels male, pulling on jeans and a T-shirt and leaving it at that. Other times, he wears makeup and one of the wigs he keeps in tidily packed boxes in his bedroom closet

I can understand the pulling of the thread with no source on it...It is quite strong, and again I understand the need for reference...

Let me see if I can impart some clarity:

If you have a penis between your legs, you're a boy.
If not, your a girl.
Any questions?

Besides, I followed the link.

From the article:

...and one of the most popular TV talk show hosts is a lesbian comic who feels comfortable in slacks and sneakers.

Hillary does comedy?

Boi or grrl?

Yet another in a long series of the Left championing perversions as "alternate lifestyles."

Won't be long before we see equally sympathetic stories for "bois" who wake up and "feel like" having sex with the family dog.

Nah, the line is from much later in the song. They spell her name in the beginning.

I met him in a swamp down in dagoba
Where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda
S o d a, soda

I saw the little runt sitting there on a log
I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said ...
... no, wait, that was the other song ...

Good luck to you on that endeavor!

And for those lurking from the left, I would suggest that "wining" works better than "whining"...

I stated elsewhere that it all boils down to one thing...

Going down and/or takin' it it the rear, or making love to a woman is easily justified, with no remorse. And the POS author of this POS article contributes greatly to the "Diseased Mind" and keeps it and others going.

Caused by nurture environmental problems:

"He now keeps a photo album of shots taken of himself both as a woman and a man. Included in it, is a a boyhood photograph taken with his mother, who died of AIDS when he was 14."

Gee, any guesses how his mother acquired AIDS? Bet it was not through blood transfusion.

....And on a different level, it’s also very personal — trying to figure yourself out,” says T.J. Jourian, a 24-year-old graduate student at Michigan State University who specifically calls himself a “transmale” — not just male — because he doesn’t want people to place his gender into a simple box.

Dang! I spend all those teenage years trying to place my gender into a simple box

Jesus said: "And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore, they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." -from THE BIBLE: Matthew 19:4-6

The mainstreaming of mental illness. These folks need help with their psychosis, not validation of their delusions.

Gender is determined at the genetic level. "Feeling" different does not and cannot change that.

I think that might be news to some people. Maybe they need to go back to HS Biology.

Haha. I caught that too. I wonder if the author put that pun in there on purpose. Probably not, given the sappy tone of the article.

She believes this more recent experimentation also will influence acceptance in a society where gender identities are already blurring — where the term “metrosexual” has become a source of pride for straight guys with a sense of style and where tough, independent female characters regularly appear in movies and on TV.

Tough, independent female characters have been around for centuries. Three that come to mind immediately are Mae West, Dale Evans, and Wonder Woman. None of whom were the slightest bit confused about their gender.

I hate to say it but I think this country is in desperate need of a good upheaval of some kind. I don't like to see people suffer but a good dose of reality is what some folks need. If people had to actually work hard to survive, it would keep them occupied enough to keep their minds off this kind of crap. I'm beginning to wonder if even scrappleface can outdo reality anymore with this kind of stuff going on. (This couldn't be satire, could it?)

One of my more sarcastic women friends would say that is where a lot of men do their thinking.

How does one singular screwed up boy end up being the subject of a media story? If I wake up with a headache some morning, doesn't that also merit coverage? How about if my dog pees on the corner of the coffee table? That definitely SHOULD be covered since that is way, way, way more important than some sexually confused teenage with no adult supervision who wants attention from the media.

How is it that the gender of this kid isn't beaten into him by his peers? At what point did we all turn into sissies and accept this crap?

Honestly, sometimes a lot of good can come out of a real pounding. It teaches cry-babies to quit whining, for one.

*sigh*

There comes a time when a man needs to act like a man, whether he wants to or not.

When our country went through one of the greatest economic booms in its history, so that no one had to work as hard anymore. Then we also had the cultural revolution which destroyed any sense of personal responsibility.
