    It's from a different ex-gay, but you can get the gist of what they have moved on to.

    The reality is that humans are born male or female.  At birth we don’t “assign” sex to a child arbitrarily, as the analysis of this bill implies.  We recognize the child’s sex – it is a physical reality.  But in the world of this bill, that reality doesn’t matter.  Like Cinderella in a fantasy world, a person may choose or change his sex, saying, “I can be whatever I want to be.”

    --Jeff Johnson, FoF's resident "ex-gay"

      Why shouldn't people be whatever they want to be...since I don't perceive it does a lick of harm to me, him, or anybody else?

      If being who you want to be involves shooting me in the knee, I have a problem with it.

      If being who you want to be involves changing your gender...my knee is safe.  Go for it.

      If he thinks it causes harm because he disapproves and it bothers him, that doesn't actually rise to the level of harm.  Go forth and disapprove all he wants.  The rest of us can simply ignore him.  I disapprove of a lot of things, but that doesn't mean people don't get to do them if they want.
