    Spong Bob? Burt and Ernie? I suspect there is someone seeing gayness everywhere, but it isn’t your kids. You should just schedule a massage on Craig’s List and relax in the company of a strong-handed professional.

    Monk-

    How can you say it is an anti-trump article if it’s true. That position reveals your childishness.

    Dsind-

    You may follow a liar but don’t lie yourself. His campaign said that it was 4.5 million. Read the original WP article. The campaign said it wasn’t 4.5 million, and they will clarify the amount in the coming days.

    We won’t forget who supported this man. We won’t forget.

    If you could clone yourself ten thousand times, you still wouldn’t have a fraction of the influence Facebook has. Hardly a child’s toy. It’s a fool’s mistake to underestimate the players on the board.

    Do you imagine the girls would continue to undress in front of the boys? Perhaps you also think that slumber parties have an erotic element? High school is still high school. Trans kids have a tough road socially. I have seen this firsthand with my trans patients. In the age of Internet porn, no boy is going to label himself trans just so he can be shunned and avoided in the girls locker room. Stop thinking of it as an 80s movie, and really engage with the reality. For a boy to make a decision that will alienate him from both the boys AND the girls, he must genuinely be in great pain. He may still be confused, and he may be trying a solution that won’t ultimately work. Nonetheless, it’s very unlikely that he is motivated by the chance to peak at a girl in undies.

    To be fair, I’m not sure many boys would self-identify as transgendered just to go in the girls locker room (where the girls would be taking steps to remain covered). Being openly trans is not exactly a good strategy for social success in high school. Also, we still have yet to see any of the bad things that people seem to be worried about. It’s a bit naive to image that sexual predators have ever been dissuaded from acting just because they weren’t supposed to be somewhere. In fact, there have been instances of men doing something sexually inappropriate or even violent in women’s rest rooms. However, the frequency of those things hasn’t increased because of these changes in law. Even in states where it has been changed for years. Some men do terrible things despite the law, not because of the law. It is exactly the same as criminals who commit gun crimes. Obviously, more laws on the gun won’t change their criminal intent.

    Think about your position for a minute. Do you know any intolerant athiests? Do you know any tolerant Christians? Unless you’re a hermit, the answer to both questions is “Yes.” Intolerance is a human trait not a Christian trait. I’m not Christian, but I do see many in my practice. Without question, religious people are more proactive about bettering themselves. For example, religious people are more likely to seek my help earlier in their addictions. That isn’t a hard-and-fast rule, but it is a trend. Religious people seem to be more likely to battle their own shortcomings because they believe doing so is a moral imperative. That characteristic has great value, and is lacking from the philosophy of athiests. Again, these are trends not rules…

  • [5] May 16, 2016 at 10:05am

    Yup-

    There has been a solid body of research on this question, and religious people tend to be happier than atheists. However, the data shows that it doesn’t matter which religion a person holds – Christians aren’t happier than Muslims, for example. The data also shows that religious people are more resilient (they recover more quickly from emotional stressors).That doesn’t mean atheists are unhappy, or immoral. I believe that you are telling the truth and that you did raise a moral and happy family. It also doesn’t mean that God is the reason for their increased stability. In fact, it’s probably the act of believing that confers the benefit. That’s why the effect persists despite the variety of religion. If you take 5 minutes and go to Pubmed or google, you can verify all these results.

    No one being intellectually honest could assert that isn’t trump’s voice. C’mon…at some point you are going to have to get your head out of your a–!

    It’s a bit ironic that people on this board always insist that people should comply, comply, comply when the person being stopped is a black guy. However, in this case most are saying he was right to not comply. A strange double standard to anyone who is an honest thinker.

    The law in Philly clearly states a permit is required. Just download the philly application for a gun license. It’s all right here.

  • [3] May 12, 2016 at 1:29pm

    Right on, Maggie. FYI though, many practitioners have lowered the expected pre-op time to one year living as the other gender. Although, I wouldn’t say it has become a new “standard.”

  • May 12, 2016 at 1:26pm

    Everything in your comment is false. Are you a liar or an idiot? Maybe both?

    There should be healthy discourse on this topic. It’s important, and people are entitled to different viewpoints. People are not entitled to lie in order to make a point. That’s cheap and childish. I know you aren’t enough of a man to apologize, but maybe you’ll at least checkout the real data yourself.

  • [1] May 12, 2016 at 1:22pm

    Semper-

    Jenner did comment on this stupid rumor. The comment that came through a rep was:
    “Not worth commenting on such an idiotic report. Of course it’s not true.”

    Try Google…you’ll be amazed at what you find if you take two second to look beyond The Blaze.

    I can clearly see the principle involved in asking for transparency. What principle supports keeping the secret? Remember, he is volunteering for this job.

    Trump supporters…answers?

    This is a stupid rumor. Transitioning back is almost unheard of because of the requirements that must be met prior to surgery. In addition to the years of hormone therapy, people are required to live as the other gender for a full year before surgery will be performed. That requirement is taken VERY seriously because no doctor wants to be sued by a disgruntled patient. Additionally, there is extensive psychological testing to help ensure that the decision isn’t whimsical or motivated by psychopathology. For some reason it angers people here that she could make the decision and not regret it. I don’t know her at all, but I do work with many transgendered people, and there isn’t typically regret after transition. It’s worth noting that about 40% of my trans patients identify as conservative, and about half (with significant overlap) say that religion is a big part of their life. This doesn’t only impact people dissimilar from you. Eventhough it is very rare, it does effect the whole spectrum of people.

    C’mon everyone…this is a pretty silly example of a coverup. Even the janitor at State would realize that deleting a clip that exists widely in other places on the internet would create much more of a scandal than just leaving it in place. We have to use commonsense when evaluating things like this. I have no illusion that they are capable of all sorts of chicanery, but I also realize that they aren’t idiots. No one at State would overlook the optics of such a ridiculous attempt at deception. Much more likely, it got clipped by a third party video editing firm who is responsible for creating these highlight reels, and didn’t pay close enough attention to the significance of the cut.

    This is so illustrative. The core issue is that trump supporters don’t actually know what conservativism is. It’s great that you love those things, but that doesn’t make you conservative. Any more than loving bagels and Streisand makes you Jewish. Conservativism has intellectual platforms and premises of which they are totally ignorant. For example, conservatives don’t necessarily “love guns.” Whether or not you love them has ZERO to do with preserving the right to own guns as stipulated in the consititution. Trump supporters confuse wanting stuff they like with being conservative. It’s shocking how close that is to leftism.

    We’re also way overdue for a major meteor strike…

    Wow. You are really stupid. The polls all showed trump ahead in the primaries. A fact that trump frequently made mention of. The polls accurately showed trump winning last night. You are so dumb as to cite the polls repeatedly when they are in your favor, but pretend they are junk when they show your man losing? The polls are accurate. They have been accurate this whole time. Be a man and admit you screwed us all.
