    What a bunch of foolishness. But the most ridiculous thing I read in the article was this...

    "Oregon, California and Washington State offer a third gender option on birth certificates."

    So now liberal nutjob parents will be trying to f**k up their kids' lives from birth. Bravo, you child abusing idiots.

    Nothing like telling science to go f**k itself, eh Windy?

      While I suppose parents can opt for the X when a child is born...I imagine it was more set up for adults who wish to not be tied to a sex on their own birth certificate and want it changed retroactively.

      Are there not XXX, XYX and XXY situations?

        I believe there are indeed XXX situations, but I don't think that's part of this discussion.

          In related news.....


          https://www.news4jax.com/news/natio...ium=social&utm_campaign=snd&utm_content=wjxt4

          A central Indiana school district has officially accepted the resignation of a teacher who disagreed with a policy compelling teachers to address transgender students by their preferred name rather than their birth name.

          .................

          Kluge was an orchestra teacher at Brownsburg High School. He said the district's transgender name policy goes against his religious beliefs and violates his constitutional rights.

          What's wrong with "Hey you!" It worked when I went to school.

            I've actually done this professionally as I end up in too many meetings with Bob's and Jeff's and such. All my notes record people by initials and I refer to them in speaking by there last names. Irked one guy, but he was a dick. Seemed to work well for everyone else.
