Yup. Let's start letting men play on girls high school sports teams. Let's start sharing bathrooms at all ages. Let's abolish boy scouts and girl scouts. Let's abolish all dress codes. Let's ban the words mother and father, brother and sister.


How's that freedom and liberty shtick of yours coming along? Cuz this sure sounds like freedom if I ever heard it!


That's the wrong kind of freedome and liberty...not his kind.

PS, I'm with you, but we need to go even further.

We might as well just abolish gender, and force everyone to become unisexual, because it is pretty clear, that is where we are heading.

Eventually, high school sports teams are going to be uni-sex. It's just going to happen as girls catch up to boys more and more. Bathroom sharing is already happening.

Not completely true. Physiological differences mean that men will always be superior at endurance, strength and full body motor skill (e.g. throwing a ball while running is a full body motor skill) based sports. It would be unfair to the woman to force them to compete on the same playing field as men.

(personal anecdote: I was startled when I began rowing at the differences between men and woman in the sport - the gap was wider than anything I had previously seen in other sports. A guy I rowed with who was arguably very fit, but at the end of the day just a social/amateur level competitor and had never rowed before, by the end of the season his 2k time on the rowing machine was ~10 seconds faster than the womans world record)

Certainly that is currently true. I do not at all believe that will remain true forever (note my word "eventually").

For us to evidence complete equality? I would agree. For women to begin to be legitimately competitive? I don't think so.

For instance, in college basketball, Brittney Greiner from Baylor was BY FAR the most dominant female in womens college basketball. It really wasn't particularly close (I still can't believe they lost to Louisville). In the mens game, she'd be below average because while she has the height, she doesn't have the strength to match up.

But how long has it been that women have been able to even play basketball at all? And fullcourt basketball is a very recent phenomena (within my lifetime). Not very long.

I am of the opinion that money savings will be a primary driver (cheaper to have one team than two!), along with the thinking that women are becoming much more competitive in sporting event areas.

That bias may not be as strong as you think.

I am a rather petite female, slightly stocky, but definitely not with big muscles or anything and yet... min my 20's, I was able to lift more, heft a pick for longer (and effectively) than 99% of the guys I worked with. (similar ages... not talking old farts here... lol).

Many of the real and true differences between men and women are not so obvious, they have more to do with how we just approach various problems and life. Whenever people try to make distinctions, they fail, partly becuase they tend to look at things from a more superficial and easy to measure way, like "can lift more". When what really matters is who can move the rock better. Better might mean not lifting it at all, but instead rolling it, or even just finding a way to use it where it lays.

Even in sports, though very circumscribed, limited in scope, you see the anomolies-- the short basketball star, for example.

Middle School Girls Forced Into 'Lesbian Kiss' at NY School

their daughters complained that they were forced to ask each other for kisses and pretend to be lovers during an anti-bullying presentation on homosexuality and gender identity.

What is the issue with those two stories PS?

First one is using roleplay to teach anti-bullying themes, I dont have an issue with that (I do agree that being specific about what the bullying is about seems slightly odd, but I dont think it matters much). They certainly never actually kissed or anything like that. I remember doing something very similar when I went through the life-lessons part of pre-puberty education (Roleplay: Dave is being bullied by Jake, now James you enter the situation and tell us how you would react).

The second one is a pretty cut and dry case. That is unless you dont believe the gender identity disorder exists.

I have to agree that there certainly should have been parental notification/permission for something of this nature. That being said, do you have a source that's not heavily biased?

Moderators, can you please remove Phatscotty's posts to another thread? This appears to be off-topic since this topic is about gay marriage.

For that matter, you might as well move all of his posts in this thread to a different thread, since none of them are about gay marriage.

It wasnt simply a one step process where the kid said "I WANT TO BE A GIRL!!"

It sounds like the diagnosis is pretty sound and the symptoms have been present for a number of years (since age of 3 if the article is accurate). Since 1 in 30000 people (according to wiki article on disorder) have the disorder it was just a matter of time that a story like this popped up.
