  •  I feel sorry for Rick (3+ / 0-)

    I really do - because he worships such a weak, ineffectual god that must be a fraud. I personally am an atheist and worship no god(s), but if there were a god, would it not stand to reason that this god would be responsible for all creation?

    I ask because there are human beings who are not male or female, they are intersex. They may have mixed organs (both male and female), indeterminate organs or only partial organs of one gender. There are many different reasons for intersex conditions, or differences in sexual development, but you cannot easily classify those with these differences as one gender or another. In fact in one condition, Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (AIS), in which a male embryo develops in utero as a girl because of resistance to male hormones, it is possible for some of these girls to develop into men at puberty, when the added flow of male hormones overcome their bodies' resistance. They can literally change gender

    Are these people to be barred from marriage because they fail to fit into Rick's preconceived notion of gender? Does he deny their existence so he can keep arguing the "naturalness" of male/female attraction? Does he acknowledge that even his own god has time and again (if you believe scripture) proven that creation is more complex than human beings' simplistic understanding?
