"What will prevent the 250-pound linebacker from deciding he wants to share the locker room with the cheerleaders?"
Deconstructionist professors have been trying for years to convince us that gender is a social construct. Now, it seems, politicians and even employers are doing their best to put this theory into practice--2007 may go down in history as the year of the transgendered person.
Take the announcement in October that, under a state law that takes effect in January, schools in California not only can't discriminate by sex but also can't take into account "a person's gender identity and gender related appearance and behavior whether or not stereotypically associated with the person's assigned sex at birth." Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm has just issued a similar order in her state, barring discrimination against state workers based on their "gender identity or expression." And members of Congress have been trying for several months to add crimes against the transgendered to the list of categories punishable under federal hate-crimes law.
The idea is that a person, though born with a particular anatomy, may not feel that it is the right one. He or she may choose to dress differently, use hormonal therapy or, at the extreme, adopt a surgical solution. As one such individual recently wrote to the San Francisco Bay Times: "My medical..."
John Nemecek, a business professor at Spring Arbor University, an evangelical college in Michigan, was demoted earlier this year because he started wearing makeup and earrings and calling himself Julie. According to a March story in this newspaper, he was diagnosed by a doctor with "gender-identity disorder" and started hormone therapy. Prof. Nemecek has filed a complaint against the school with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. "Essentially they're saying they can define who is a Christian," he has said...

Common sense about boys, I find it hard to believe. The damage caused by the feminazis is hard to underestimate.
The only solution for California is for parents to withdraw their children from government schools and then to stop paying taxes.
I’m not sure about taking kids out of school, but with a $14B deficit on a budget of $101B, they may just have stopped paying taxes.
Ok, here’s one that I haven’t seen before. I have seen that libs want to present gender as a choice. Libs think you can simply claim yourself to be a man or woman, and poof it is so.
If that’s the case, can I declare my race? As of this time, I’m black, and I want the entitlements due me for my race.
Being a male and thinking that you are really a female is a disorder. It’s called a delusion. Cutting off a healthy body part will not cure it.
They never stop. The insane have taken over the asylum and the useful idiots are clapping and grinning. Let the left keep it up. The day is coming when people stand up against the depravity and refuse to accept it or debate it any longer.
Part of me fears that day but another part hungers for it.
They've been kind of quiet. Wonder why?
I never could stand that cretin.
Don’t blame me. I voted for McClintock.
Is “that” Christine Jorgenson? or is heshe the the Colmes that married that zaftig sister of Monica Crowley?
That’s a cadaver...
I look at it this way.
They can call a dog a porcupine all they want. I’m sure as hell not going to pat it, though.
“The only solution for California is for parents to withdraw their children from government schools and then to stop paying taxes.”
Better yet, move out of Sodom. And don’t look back.
Then the aliens can take California back to Mexico.
I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if this freak had a sex change operation in the future.
Sounds like a good opportunity for normal boys to claim gender identity issues and start frequenting girl’s locker rooms.
But my question remains. Where are the Freepers who were pressuring us to elect arnie the cretin Rhino? I'd like to rub their noses in the garbage.
Actually, the only solution for California is a 9.5 on the Richter Scale and start the whole thing over with people from the heartland of America.
I just got back from a trip to see family in CA. Gas is more than a dollar more per gallon there, than it is here in AZ. (And they are still in debt?)
There are many good FReepers in CA, (including our very own JRs.)
I’m here, too. The state is a lost cause.
They're busy trying to sell Giuliani to the nation.
I always thought he looked like the Crypt-Keeper.
It makes me sad to see such a beautiful state with so many incredible people, be ridiculed unmercifully and so consistantly.
There must be a way to save it.
Nonsense. It is impossible to change one’s sex. They can cut, chop and shape and mold all they want, but it doesn’t change what a person is.
I’ve lived here for 54 of my 59 years. It is a beautiful state, but it has unfortunately become a de-facto province of Mexico. The far left is in control, and they are destroying it. There is no hope to save it. I never thought it would happen, but I am planning to leave California.
I have long believed that I was Napoleon Bonaparte. I’m glad that others are finally catching up with me.
What about trans-species? What if one "feels" he should be, say, a cocker spaniel, or a parrot, or a salamander?
Day after day, more people come to LA
Shhh! Don't you tell anybody that the whole place is slippin'away...
Where can we go when there's no San Francisco?
Better get ready to tie up the boat in Idaho.

They're rootin for Rudy and hustlin' for Huckabee.
Get a psychiatrist to diagnose you with Ethnic Identity Disorder. Then go change your name to Sleep and Eat, go to work in Black Face and demand to use the Colored Only Rest Room. Also have the company inform the real Afican-American employees that they are to accept you as one of them.
They are doing the co ed thing in NJ too.
