    Would love to ask this woman which locker room a person should use if that person identifies as female, but has no uterus and has XY chromosomes. I'm sure she'd say "the boys' locker room." Then I'd open up a biology text book and teach her about Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (CAIS): NIH Discussion of Androgen Insensitivity

    How sad to be so closed-minded that one cannot appreciate the full spectrum of humanity and understand that the gender of the brain and the gender of the body both have to develop in utero, and therefore may not match.

    •  I had a 46,XY cousin (7+ / 0-)

      She put up with a lot in her 46 years. If she hadn't been convinced any computer would explode when she touched it, she'd have been happy here on the GOS.

      I'm appalled at this woman. Here comments show absolute stupidity and hate is one package. I hope she gets voted off the school board.

      Wonder what other great 'educational' ideas she has.....

    •  It's that fundamentalism again. (0+ / 0-)

      If an all wise and all knowing God controls the growth of every embryo, then God CANNOT make a mistake, and to admit the possibility is very disturbing.  Therefore, to these people of WILLFULLY limited intellect, ALL gay and otherwise sexually different people have "chosen their lifestyle" in response to temptation from Satan.

      Or perhaps, if every soul is incarnated according to that soul's long term spiritual needs, perhaps these souls have accepted a mission to teach other souls compassion, while teaching themselves a lesson they did not learn the last time they were incarnated.

      Or perhaps our physical bodies and the brains that go into them are formed by natural law, which has a few random exceptions to the rule, of the same nature as being born blind, or born amputees, or born with diabetes, etc.  Or being caught in a tornado or volcanic eruption.
