Sensitivity Video Teaches Police to Ask Transgenders Their Preferred Pronoun, Allow Restroom Preference

police-video-compressedA sensitivity training video recently released by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) teaches police officers nationwide to ask men who identify as women and vice versa which gender pronoun they prefer, and to allow them to use the restroom that correlates with their gender identity.

The video, Law Enforcement and the Transgender Community, was produced by the DOJ’s Community Relations Service and features role playing skits to show officers how they are to respond to certain scenarios involving transgendered persons.

“Transgender people are just trying to be their true selves and live their lives as members of our communities just like anyone else,” states narrator Sgt. Brett Parson on Washington D.C. in the footage. “As law enforcement officers, we must make every effort to collaborate and learn from the transgender community so we can better serve others today and in the future.”

The opening skit portrays an officer pulling over a person who looks like a woman but whose drivers license identification is that of a man.

“Do you prefer if I call you ma’am or sir?” Cpl. Evan Baxter of the Prince George’s County Police Department asks.

“Ma’am, please,” replies the man with the appearance of a woman.

“When in doubt, it’s always best to ask an individual what their preference is. Just simply ask, ‘How would you like to be addressed?'” Parson explains in the teaching segment. “Using the correct or preferred pronouns demonstrates respect and lets the individual know that you are knowledgeable about their community, which is both reassuring and shows that you are a true professional.”

“When someone’s name or gender on a license is different from what you expect, how do you react?” If you’re not certain what the proper way to address someone is, just ask,” Baxter also states.

The video also covers what is known as “trans while walking,” situations where officers might mistake the person for a prostitute, and how to handle those who call the police over “what I think is a man in the ladies’ bathroom.”

“I’m a woman; I was just in there using the restroom,” the transgendered person in the skit tells the officer after being questioned.

“I apologize,” the officer replies. “[There was] probably a misunderstanding.”

“If officers understand who transgender people are as a part of their community, interactions can be a whole lot better,” Parson says.

The video cites the National Center for Transgender Equality and PFLAG National as being supportive of the training footage.

As previously reported, last month, a federal judge placed a preliminary injunction on the Obama administration’s national directive requiring public school districts to allow male students who identify as female to use the girls’ restroom and vice versa.

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor determined that the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice had not followed the proper channels in issuing the nationwide guidance, and suggested that the departments’ interpretation of federal law was incorrect.

“It cannot be disputed that the plain meaning of the term sex … following passage of Title IX meant the biological and anatomical differences between male and female students as determined at their birth,” he wrote.

    Deuteronomy 22:5 “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this.”
    When we elect leaders who are godless, we inherit godless dictates. Obama shows he despises God’s word and society is reeling with trying to sort out the confusion transgenders have with themselves.

    • BobbyHead

      That mean all female cops cannot wear men’s cloths or go out on the street with men. They must wear skirts with no guns or belt. These are men’s items. That also means all women in the military cannot wear men’s uniforms or be in combat areas. They should only wear what the waves and wax women wore similar to WWII only updated but must look feminine.

      • Amos Moses

        Yeah ….. a little leaven, leavens the WHOLE lump ……………

      • TheKingOfRhye

        We might as well not even HAVE female cops, then, if you’re going to say they shouldn’t carry guns. That’s kind of an essential thing for police work, generally….

        • Rick

          Were not talking about uniforms or styles, we are talking about men and women attempting to impersonate the opposite sex. The need to be referred to an identity that reflects the opposite of your gender is abomination God is referring to. It’s twisted and it is aberrant to the order of creation.

          • Gena B

            I understand the roles God has designed for women and men, this transgender thing has nothing to do with God. If they can’t figure out who they really are as a gender how can they possibly understand more weightier matters of the things of God?

          • Rick

            Everything has to do with God. God doesn’t desire that they suffer an eternity in Hell and either do I. Our society has so confused the ideas of marriage, love, and identity that it has become a warped array of confusion and disorder. We have been created for a purpose. Those who live in sin miss the fullness of joy and peace that only Jesus provides.

      • Jolanda Tiellemans

        So every woman then should wear a skirt and no pants? LOL!!! Right!

          Yes

            Well, I’ll guess you can dream about it.

    • RWH

      Maybe it’s called respect. Maybe it’s addressing people as they prefer to be addressed. I’ve witnessed a number of people who act like stupid jerks that go out of their way to offend others “in the name of Christ.” Then they get upset when there is push back. The days are over when so-called Christians can make the ones they disapprove of sit in the back of the bus. The itty bitty minority has friends and relatives who love them and don’t want to see them hurt by the insensitive Christian clods who go out of their way to offend others “in the name of Christ.” And these friends and relatives are now forming what is now public opinion, leaving those Christian clods screaming their guts out on the sidelines.

      The group of nones is getting larger exponentially every year now, and one of the reasons why they have dropped out of church is that they are turned off by those Christian clods who are fixated on gays and transgenders so much that it forms the central pedestal of faith for which everything else is subordinate.

      • Harry Oh!

        You sound like a big time God hater. What about Islam and the scores of heterosexual men who get ill at the thought of two men on top of each other? Your pathology isn’t a ‘Christian’ problem. It’s a mental one.

        • RWH

          Thank you for proving my point. I am talking about respect for other people, and all you can do is to think about what sorts of things people do in bed. When you see people on the street, do you always think about their sex acts private? Why not think about people as people and clean your mind out with bleach or some sort of other strong disinfectant? And don’t hide behind God when you bathe yourself in filthy thoughts as if you have some sort of divine permission to put your mind in a pornographic mode.

          • Harry Oh!

            Take it easy pal. I could care less what people do behind closed doors, but I do take exception to being forced to accept something that is abnormal and sick, as normal and natural. And it’s got nothing to do with God, it’s a biological, rational reaction.

          • james blue

            Perhaps you could take this feeling of being treated with disrespect and apply it to how you deal with others.

          • RWH

            If you don’t care what people do behind closed doors, why did you bring up what people do in bed? What concerns me is that you meet someone by chance on the street, and you are already thinking about their sexual proclivities. Why not act like a Christian and treat people with respect. Even Christ said to walk the second mile. He never disrespected people, and for that he was criticized by the so-called spiritual people for eating with Publicans and sinners. You don’t feel comfortable around transgendered people? It costs you nothing to be polite and considerate. Maybe the poor individual will go into shock at the realization that there is not someone who claims s/he loves Christ yet treats others like crap.

          • Amos Moses

            “If you don’t care what people do behind closed doors, why did you bring up what people do in bed? ”

            Because they brought it out of the bedroom where it belongs ……….

          • RWH

            Well, maybe if you weren’t thinking in terms of sex, you wouldn’t be thinking of bedrooms. Maybe so-called Christians are losing ground because others are getting tired of their anal-retentive priggish attitudes. I’m surrounded daily by people who dress in some very non-conventional ways. It’s not my style, but I’m not going to display any type of disapproval, even mentally, because it’s going to show in my attitude and nonverbal communication

          • Amos Moses

            WE ALL think in terms of sex ….. 1st personal safety …. 2nd food … 3rd procreation ……. it is WHO WE ARE as human beings …..

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            I’m not. I’ll guess that makes me rare.

          • Cady555

            No. They did not. They are just going about their business.

          • Amos Moses

            Yeah … and that business is to attract others to their way of dress ………. and WE ALL do it …..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            You say you “could care less what people do behind closed doors” but then you go on to call it “abnormal and sick”, and in another post talked about the “scores of heterosexual men who get ill at the thought of two men on top of each other”…..sorry, but that sounds more than a little hypocritical to me. If you didn’t care about what they do, then why go into such detail about how sick and abnormal you find it?

            To be honest, I don’t find the thought of what two men do behind closed doors particularly appealing myself, or for that matter, I probably wouldn’t want to think about what a lot of men and women do behind closed doors. It’s just no business of mine, though, and it doesn’t change how I think they should have the same rights as everyone else.

          • Harry Oh!

            They already had the same rights as everybody else. What were they missing besides state-sanctioned marriage? You make it sound like you were kicked to the back of the bus, but that is a delusional lie. The fact is you were treated the same as any other law biding citizen. Your plight is not the same as blacks or woman, those are not life-style pathologies.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            First of all, it’s maybe kind of irrelevant, but I personally wasn’t kicked to the back of anything. I’m neither homosexual nor transgender, so it’s not “my plight.” But that doesn’t mean I’m not on their side, so to speak.

            Furthermore, to say they were treated the same as everyone else is just flat-out wrong. Until not too long ago, someone could have (under the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy) been kicked out of the military just for being known to be a homosexual. In a lot of places in this county, someone can be fired from their job, denied service at a ‘public accommodation’, or discriminated against in some other way, just for being homosexual.

            “Your plight is not the same as blacks or woman”

            Did I say it was? Wait a minute though, does that mean that you’re saying only things you were born with, like race or sex, should be protected from discrimination? I guess we can do away with protections for one’s religion, then?

          • Harry Oh!

            They also kick people out of the army who are too fat. You can’t go to University if you’re dumb, you can’t join the police force if you have a criminal record, you can’t work at a nice restaurant if you have greasy long hair and are covered in tattoos. Should we be making special laws for these people too?

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Each of those attributes you mentioned would make a person unsuited or unqualified for those things. How does being a transgendered person or a homosexual make a person unqualified to serve in the military? And what “special laws” are you talking about?

          • Cady555

            You are not being forced to “accept”. You are expected to mind your own business, treat everyone respectfully, and not go out of your way to bring discomfort to people minding their own business.

            Yeah. Maybe that is too much to ask.

          • Harry Oh!

            What planet are you on? There is no longer a single aspect of our society and culture that does shove the gay agenda down your throat and usually with punishment for those that don’t comply. Gays weren’t tortured or treated badly, that is just a lie that you tell yourselves in order to become mainstream.

          • Amos Moses

            and we should just mind our own business in other matters as well? ………. Really …..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            I’d mind my own business about that. Someone’s incestuous marriage in Oklahoma, what the heck does that have to do with me? Doesn’t effect me one damn bit, in fact. I’m not advocating incest or something, I just really don’t care about it.

          • Amos Moses

            Got it ….. so the destruction of society does not have anything to do with you …… OBVIOUSLY ………………..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Some mother and daughter getting married is “the destruction of society”?

          • Amos Moses

            It is part of a pattern that you seem to endorse ………. that you do not recognize your outcome to what you endorse …… not a surprise ……..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            How is one incestuous marriage in Oklahoma part of this pattern that apparently leads to the destruction of society?

            And how does that even happen anyway? They said she married her son before…..don’t people check on those things? Weird.

          • Amos Moses

            Did not start there ….. you allow one group to “marry who they “love”” ….. that is lawlessness …… it breeds more lawlessness ………. lawlessness affects everyone ……… weird …………

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Ah, okay, got it then, just another ‘slippery slope’ argument.

            How are you seeing a “pattern” here based on one isolated incident?

            False premise…. There are no “isolated incidents”…..

          • Amos Moses

            “When you see people on the street, do you always think about their sex acts private?”

            When they go out of their way to dress in a fashion that makes it known that the reason they are dressed that way is to draw people for sex ………… sure …. everybody does ……. and when they dress to draw attention to perversion …… sure …. everybody does …..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Okay, so you don’t like when people dress to “draw attention to perversion”…fine, but that’s not really just a transgender or homosexual thing only, is it?

          • Amos Moses

            LOL! ………… yes ………….. it is ……….. because they are drawing attention to their perversion of it …….. now if you had quoted “When they go out of their way to dress in a fashion that makes it known that the reason they are dressed that way is to draw people for sex ” ….. that would apply to everyone …..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Hmm….okay, so transgenderism and homosexuality are the only things you classify as “perversions”? Well, that’s up to you, I guess.

            I guess what I’m really trying to say is that heterosexual cisgender people can be perverts too….LOL

          • Amos Moses

            Nope …….. it is up to God/Christ as our Creators …… i just agree with them ………

          • Amos Moses

            Yes …… it is ……… or they would not dress the way they do …….

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            So a woman in a mini-skirt and I mean high above the knee and a very tight sleefless tops is asking for sex and probably a transgender then? Right!

            “So a woman in a mini-skirt and I mean high above the knee and a very tight sleefless tops is asking for sex and probably a transgender then? Right!”

            We all dress to make ourselves attracted to others …….. i said nothing about it applying to trannys only ……….

            “I’m not. I’ll guess that makes me rare.”

            Yes you are ………. and no you are not …………….

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            We all dress to make ourselves attracted to others. Nope, I don’t. You wouldn’t catch me wearing a skirt. Jeans and a tee is my choice of clothing.

          • Amos Moses

            And that makes you attractive to those you want to attract ………… so …… YYYYYYUPPPPPP! ………..

            So what ………. did not say it was to attract any person specifically ……….. but you do it ….. everyone does …… you are not better than anyone else …… you may think that gives you some kind of self-righteousness …. it does not ……. you act as everyone else acts …… Try again …………..

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            You are doing it again. Thinking you know me, you don’t. Try to sell this to someone who is actually interested in having sex and want kids. I’m 47, not so much into sex and men, more into long weekends away and enjoying life. Maybe difficult for you to grasp that there are actually people in this world who are not interested in procreation.

          • Amos Moses

            i know what people do ………… and you aint NO DIFFERENT ………. and it does not change how you act ONE IOTA ……….. you dress the way you do attract some and repel others ……. has not one thing to do with romance or sex or kids ….. has do do with how we conduct ourselves …… and again ………… YOU AINT NO DIFFERENT ……………

            Tranny is what they call themselves….. if you are insulted by sin …. stop sinning ….

          • PattyJM

            I don’t know who you know, Amos, but I transitioned more than thirty years ago. Along the way I have known literally hundreds of trans people both male to female and female to male.

            They want only to be able to live their lives in peace.

            There are a minority of those who have been kicked out by their families, discriminated against when trying to find job, and have no choice but to turn to sex work to keep alive. And yes, it is that basic. The need to survive pushes people to do a lot of things they wouldn’t do otherwise.

            Of all the people met since my transition what the vast majority want is to live their lives in peace as the person they know they are. Its an unfortunate fact that people who claim to be “christians” (small “c” deliberately) act anything but Christian towards them.

            Read Matthew 25:31 to the end. That is the parable of the sheep and the goats.

            “41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

            42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,

            43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after
            me.”

            When you who claim to be Christians show such blatant and ignorant hatred toward those who have needs you are not feeding the hungry, clothing the naked and are actually making other people’s lives more difficult.

            44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

            This conversation started over the use of names and pronouns. Well, I ask you, what simpler and easier way to show that you respect the dignity of another than to show common courtesy?

          • Amos Moses

            So you have been in unregenereate sin for thirty years … and you think that entitles you to be called brother (or sister or whatever) …… no … sorry … there are consequences for living in sin ….. but you seem to think the rest of the world must coddle you in your sin ….. NOPE …. in fact scripture says to TURN AWAY from those person ….. to turn them over to SATAN for the redemption of their souls … 1 Corinthians 5&6 …. if you want to know why those people were turned away …. that is why …… because what God/Christ wants is more important than what you or i want …… and then you want to cherry pick scripture to justify what you are doing and in doing so compound your error and sin ….. and it is SIN …… Matthew 19 CONFIRMS what God/Christ created …… MEN AND WOMEN …. not special little classes that think they are other than what God/Christ created ………..

            5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
            5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
            5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
            5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
            5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
            5:9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
            5:10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
            5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

            6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
            6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
            6:11 And such WERE some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
            6:12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
            6:13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

            You, 30 years in unregenerate SIN, ARE NOT A WERE ….. you are an ARE …. and NOT a brother ….. but this is what “makes you happy” ….. as if that is the standard Christ set …… NOPE …………

            19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
            19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
            19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

            Matthew 25 is talking about the judgement of the NATIONS ….. NOT individuals and you are taking scripture out of context to give it a meaning you wish it to say …… NOT what it actually says …… so fail ……

            You know, I come to sites like this in the vain hope that someone at one time or another might pick up a fact or two that helps people understand different people.

            Thank you for your concern but its clear that I am wasting perfectly good electrons trying to talk with you.

            i do not want only good to come to me ….. it is unprofitable ….. woe to the man that the world only speaks well of them ……… that is a curse ….. but if that was your intention … thnx …. that fits ….. i have sad news for you ….. this life is not fair …. never was and never will be …. and if all you are going to do is chase after everyone thinking well of you ….. that truly is a wasted life ….. Christ has much to offer …… but it is on His terms …. not ours …. He is not Burger King and we do not get to have it our way ….. repentance ….. meaning to bring our thoughts in line with His thoughts …. is a challenge …. but it is fully able to be accomplished ….. we will never do it perfectly ….. not one of us ….. but listening to Him is the only answer to true peace in this life … and the next …. listen to Him …

            Well the only time I think about someones sex acts private is when it’s a hot guy and how much I want him in my bed. Hey a girl can dream, right?

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Maybe it’s just me, but the way some of these people always go on about how disgusting the sexual practices of certain people are…..makes me wonder who they’re really trying to convince.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Any sex that isn’t in a heterosexual relationship is an abomination.
            I understand you can’t grasp that, but it’s fact. The Bible says so. God is the Creator of sex and it is beautiful when in a proper relationship.

            To us it seems it’s a big deal to you who support anything different because it’s such an issue with those who fight for it to be accepted as normal. Seems there has been a lot of “convincing” going on from your side of the table in insisting it is normal. Things that are normal don’t have to be forced or legislated…they simply are.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            “…
            it’s fact. The Bible says so”

            Well, I think I’ve been pretty clear here how I’m NOT a Christian, so do you really think I’d believe something is a fact because the Bible says it is? And you guys always seem to go on about how certain things aren’t normal. You know what? You’re right. Transgenderism, homosexuality…..they’re not normal. Naturally occurring in a small percentage of the population, but not really normal. But plenty of things are like that, and no one thinks that badly of them.

          • TheBottomline4This

            I haven’t interacted with you much, so I don’t know if you have a faith based life or not. That’s between you and God.
            “..so do you really think I’d believe something is a fact because the Bible says it is?” I don’t expect for you to, but your side sure expects us to believe EVERYTHING Science says, since it’s seems to be your sides god in some ways. I don’t believe everything that comes from Science, especially now days.
            “But plenty of things are like that, and no one thinks that badly of them.” Like what?

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Like what? How about oh, uh…..left-handedness, autism, one eye being a different color from the other, that sort of thing. All of those can be called “not normal” but it doesn’t make them a bad thing just by virtue of that.

          • TheBottomline4This

            “left-handedness, autism, one eye being a different color from the other”
            Why would anyone think badly toward those? There is nothing wrong with those.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            That’s kind of my point. Things aren’t wrong just because they’re “not normal.”

          • TheBottomline4This

            Those things are normal though.
            We are left handed or right handed. That is not a moral issue anyway.
            Some have autism, some don’t. That is not a moral issue either.
            Different eye color is normal. Not a moral issue.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            I’d continue that with something like…….

            We either are attracted to the same sex or the opposite sex. Not a moral issue.
            We either are the same gender as our sex or not. Not a moral issue.

            I’m sure you wouldn’t agree with that, but that’s my opinion anyway.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Those are moral issues though.
            God made us heterosexual, satan twists that into the others.
            God made us the sex He wants us to be, satan twists that into the others.
            Morals are part of life, either we have good ones or bad ones.
            We are not the judge of that, God is.

          • OhNoodlyOne

            I don’t believe that a god exists, so I dismiss your whole comment. When you can prove a god, you can get back to us.

            “I don’t expect for you to, but your side sure expects us to believe EVERYTHING Science says, since it’s seems to be your sides god in some ways.”

            Science isn’t a “god” because it’s not a thing. It’s the process by which we come to understand how the world works. If enough scientific evidence is uncovered to make a conclusion about something, it becomes the scientific consensus.

            “I don’t believe everything that comes from Science, especially now days.”

            You seem to think that scientific consensus comes from a bunch of people sitting around in a room making things up at random. It doesn’t. It comes from carefully conducted, supervised, double blind studies, reproducible by other, unrelated scientists.

            If you want to challenge a scientific consensus on something, feel free, but you have to do it by conducting your own carefully supervised, double blind, reproducible studies, i.e. science.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Science has it’s merits, but it also has it’s limits, which includes fallacies.
            Science is a god to you. You look to it for validation of your views. There are many gods, but only one God.

          • PattyJM

            They really do seem to spend a lot of time obsessing about other people’s sex lives, don’t they?

          • TheKingOfRhye

            I just don’t get how some people think it matters that they find what other people do in their sex lives to be ‘disgusting’. Do those people base what they do and don’t do in the bedroom on whether other people would approve of it or not? If so, they’re definitely going about that the wrong way!

        • Triamene

          There are no God haters.

      • TheBottomline4This

        “The days are over when so-called Christians can make the ones they disapprove of sit in the back of the bus.”
        No, those who don’t bow to Liberal bull don’t approve of this mental illness. You can approve of this mental illness all you and want, it doesn’t make it anymore normal. It is a sickness and trying to normalize it just shows how wrong it is. Things that are natural don’t have to be forced.
        It’s no big deal if some are turned off by those who see this illness for what it is. In case you don’t know, the Bible does say the gate is wide to destruction and many will find it. I hope you and those who support this illness enjoy your trip. Any “victory” you think you have gained is only temporary 🙂

      • meamsane

        Hate Christians much?
        The truth here is that men are men and women are women. That’s reality. No one should promote such a delusion from mental Illness and turn society upside down by changing laws and forcing acceptance of such delusions contrary to reality!

            Why would anyone hate truth? Most likely they just disagree with you that it IS truth.

          • TheBottomline4This

            There is usually only one truth on something.
            If you think a tree is a skillet and we know different, you are wrong. Truth trumps lies. It is a lie that someone who is born one sex is the other if they “feel” like they are.

    • Rick Derris

      “itty bitty minority of people”

      I’m so glad that you admit that minorities shouldn’t be treated with the same rights as the majority.

      It’s not too often you meet someone so open about being a bigot.

      • meamsane

        Everyone who does not conform to your worldview is a bigot? I get it! How does it feel to be a part of the un-thinking masses conforming to every Irrational idea and every idiotic re-definition of reality?

        • Rick Derris

          Oh no, I’m fine with people not conforming to my worldview so long as their worldview doesn’t involve oppressing others.

          But you admitted that you think minorities don’t deserve the same rights as the majority, simply because they are the minority. It’s quite refreshing to see someone be so honest about being a bigot.

          • meamsane

            Oh yes! This is not just a minority of people, but a minority of sick and mentally Ill people that already have the same rights as everyone else.
            They want to be given special rights, not only in conflict with what is normal and natural, but also conflicting with the reality that men are not women nor are women men also creating conflict with other people simply because they want to pretend that they are something they are not and want the feds to force it upon society. These people need real help, not the promotion of their mental instability!

          • Rick Derris

            Why lie?

            You already said that you support discrimination against minorities.

            Geez, why is it you guys always make excuses for your bigotry when called on it? You’re perfectly content to be a bigot until someone says something; then, you suddenly get all fragile.

            You are a conformist, as you’re conforming to whatever your church tells you, and you do care about my opinions, because you keep replying.

          • meamsane

            Your typical psychological mind games show that you are the conformist. These kind of games are used by groups or individuals that project their own bigotries and lies onto others (usually Christian) in order to shame them into silence. If I was a conformist, I would use the same strategy.
            Actually, I find it hard to take you too seriously because of these kind of games.
            I reply to you out of simple courtesy. This is a forum for discussion, correct?
            You don’t know me or anything about me!

          • Rick Derris

    • BobbyHead

      The godless progressive liberals are calling the U.S. Constitution a living document. This means you can interpret the meaning of it any way that fits the present progressive mob thinking of the day by wicked judges. That’s why we need and addendum that puts
      God Almighty and His Son Jesus the Lord of all, in an updated U.S. Constitution.

      This should be a new preamble to the U.S. Constitution:

      WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES recognizing the being and
      attributes of almighty God, the divine Authority of the Holy Scriptures, the
      law of God as the paramount rule, and Jesus the Messiah, the Savior and Lord of
      all, in order to form a more perfect union do ordain and establish this Constitution
      of the United States of America.

      ———————————————

      If our founding fathers knew what would happen to America today they would have added the God of the Bible and His Son, the Lord of all, Jesus the Christ. It should be updated Article [I] (Amendment 1 – Freedom of expression and religion)

      Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of a National Christian Church, or prohibiting the free exercise of all Christian Churches and Christians thereof. Any Christian has the right to share his faith anywhere and anyplace including any government agency and military post or unit; and there shall be the freedom to place Christian scripture anywhere and on any government document; there cannot be any abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press or any media; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

      • TheBottomline4This

        It is good to know the godless will lose in the end unless they repent. Any “victories” they think they have are empty and limited.
        1 Thessalonians 5:3 “While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.”
        Philippians 3:18-19 “For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things.”

      Lying is NOT civil.

      Every cell has the DNA of male OR female.

      “Feelings ” are not science NOR defined as civility

      • http://www.slowlyboiledfrog.com/ David Cary Hart

        Dear Dr. Ax2root:

        1. I cannot post links here but just over the last few months, a study of transgender children published to a first-tier scholarly journal employing double-blind peer review demonstrates that their sexual identity is neither the product of confusion nor pretense. Ergo, they cannot be lying.

        2. Your second point is not entirely correct because a small segment of the population have ambiguous chromosomes. Aside from that you are confirming that gender dysphoria describes the conflict between chromosomal gender and gender identity.

        3, The notion that feelings are not science presents a false equivalence. How subjects feel comprises a significant amount of research. For example, we know a great deal about depression which is a feeling. So while the statement that depression is not science might be true, the study and treatment of depression is most certainly science — as is the study and treatment of gender dysphoria.

        Furthermore, feelings are the fundamental basis for — and underpinning of — civility. We often define this with the “golden rule.”

        • Ax2root

          And enabling mental illness remains uncivil and against the Golden Rule which was given by The Creator who creates male and female gender which is evident in the DNA

          Thinking can change.

          Gender does not.

          • PattyJM

            You know nothing about the topic but seem to be deliberately stuck in your rigid ignorance.

            Being transgender is NOT a mental illness, at least not to the great many psychologists, psychiatrists, and medical experts from a wide variety of disciplines who have studied it intensely.

            Are you qualified tor diagnose someone you have never met and most likely will never meet?

            I didn’t think so.

            Fortunately people like you are dying off and are gradually being replaced by younger and more flexible minds.

        • Ax2root

          A normal thinking person would be the one lying if THEY enabled a delusional person

        • Chet

          Your deliberate misuse of the Golden Rule may confuse the unlearned and uninformed and unconcerned. Not so with those who engage critical thinking and who also know God’s Word, as written and intended…

      • PattyJM

        Its not lying when a transgender person asks to be called by the name and preferred pronouns. Ignoring the person’s wishes is showing a lack of respect for that person – AND EVERY human being deserves this courtesy.

        Just to make a point let’s say you have friend named Charles. No Charles strongly dislikes being called “Chuck”. You would call him Charles, wouldn’t you?

        Calling him by any other name would be rude and show that you have no regard for his feelings. It would also mark you as a jerk.

        • Ax2root

          It is not loving to enable mental illness by referring to someone by a fake gender name that opposes their DNA OF MALE XY or FEMALE XX.

          Don’t call someone a dog just because they feel like one either

          • PattyJM

            Have you ever had a karyotype test? That is one that is used to examine chromosomes. Almost all people are either XX or XY. Almost, but not all. Unless you have been tested you do not KNOW for a certainty that you are one of those two.

            And even if you HAVE had that test do you know what is in the cells of your next door neighbor? Your co-worker? The supermarket clerk who rang up your groceries? No, you don’t.

            You and I and every one of the 7 billion people on planet earth all do the same thing. You see someone with a man’s haircut and facial hair, someone dressed as a man you will instinctively respond to him as you would a man. And the converse is true as well.

            When you meet a man you will respond as culture and upbringing prescribe. Or a woman the same thing. Assuming your mother taught you basic courtesy your response would be as to any other woman.

            And THIS is all most trans people want. They want people to treat them as their true gender. Nothing more. Nothing less.

    We’re not seeing a person suffering from multiple personality disorder being taken seriously if he or she demands to be addressed as “they”.
    We’re not providing Bulimics with a special stall where they can do their purging in peace.
    We’re not using our tax dollars to specifically provide diet pills to Anorexics.
    If we did do these things, we’d be harming those suffering from these afflictions by encouraging them in their disorders.
    Thanks to political correctness, trannys get treated to special harm…

    • Ambulance Chaser

      None of those groups are medically and psychologically proven to be hardwired to be suffering from the affliction you describe. None of those groups is irrevocably suffering from that affliction either.

      Transgender people cannot be “cured.”

      • TheBottomline4This

        Where’s your proof transgenders “can’t be cured”?

        • Ambulance Chaser

          I can’t post links so go to the American Psychological Association’s page and read “guidelines for psychological practice with transgender and gender non conforming people.”

          • TheBottomline4This

            That is a biased source, so no thanks.
            Trans are mentally ill. It’s sad and even sadder that out of fear others are enabling it.

          • OhNoodlyOne

            You’re mentally ill.

          • TheBottomline4This

            No, trans are sweetie.
            You trans?

          • OhNoodlyOne

            Please don’t call me sweetie, and my gender is no concern of yours.

          • TheBottomline4This

            What you were born is who you are sweetie.

          • OhNoodlyOne

            Your’e a real jerk aren’t you 🙂

          • TheBottomline4This

            No sweetie. the truth just stings you. Grow up.

          • OhNoodlyOne

            LOL actually, you are 🙂

          • TheBottomline4This

            Trans are mentally ill…that is the bottomline on the issue.

          • OhNoodlyOne

            Not according to actual doctors, sorry.

            he was born a kitty …….. a “meow man” …………..

          • OhNoodlyOne

            I’ll leave that up to your imagination. I know you’re fantasizing that I am 😉

          • Ambulance Chaser

            “That is a biased source” is not an argument. You probably read biased sources all day. I know I do. I read Addicting Info, Slate, Friendly Atheist, Americans United, the FFRF, etc. And you do too; THIS is a “biased” site.

            Just because something is “biased” doesn’t mean that everything they say is automatically false and can dismissed without reading it.

            So I’m going to ask you again to read the paper and tell me what you think the problem is with it.

            Oh, yes, and the American Psychological Association is not “biased.”

          • TheBottomline4This

            I’m not reading your “paper”.
            Trans is a mental illness.
            We are the sex we are born, thinking anything different is a mental illness.
            You’re probably the type of person who would go along with someone who thinks they are a tree.
            smh

          • Ambulance Chaser

            If you’re so certain, then you should be able to refute the points made in the paper very easily.

          • TheBottomline4This

            I refute them without reading the paper. Nice try though.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Okay, proceed.

          • meamsane

            Not only are they biased, but intellectually dishonest as well.
            Salon dot com wrote a piece on May 20, 2009 called
            Are Transgender people Mentally Ill? by Judy Berman.
            The beginning of the article states one of the reasons that the APA changed their Classifications of Trans-genders was because of political activism or protest. Political pressure was put on the APA to change by this group and their advocates. That is not science! They cannot be trusted. You can look this up by using this info on the article.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            That’s not what the article says.

            GID had not been reclassified in 2009. The article in Salon was a non-position piece chronicling the movement to change the DSM-IV diagnosis. Berman notes that there were competing camps within the psychological community, and the non-illness camp eventually won.

            Why is that a problem? In science, controversies are constantly raging and being resolved. That’s how the process works.

          • meamsane

            Except for the political pressures, which should not be involved at all. This makes any decision that they make tainted!

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Tainted, I guess, but it’s not dispositive of anything really. Regardless of whether there’s political pressure or not, the science stands on its own.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            What do you think would happen if I walked into court on Monday and said, “Judge, I’m not going to address any of Opposing Counsel’s points. He’s biased in favor his client, so everything he says can be dismissed without even hearing it.”?

          • Triamene

            The American Psychological Association is “biased”?

          • TheBottomline4This

            So you have total faith in the APA?

          • Triamene

            Pretty much.

          • TheBottomline4This

            LOL

          • Triamene

            Since they have scientific backing on everything they do it would be ridiculous not to support their findings.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Be careful in thinking that, it may come back to bite ya someday.

          • Triamene

            Who’s going to prove them wrong, Christians?

          • TheBottomline4This

            When the time is right, you’ll find out 🙂

          • Triamene

            Can’t wait. In the meantime, science wins.

      • Amos Moses

        ” None of those groups is irrevocably suffering from that affliction either.”

        And that includes transexuals ……….

        “Transgender people cannot be “cured.””

        Yes …. they can …. but you choose to keep them in bondage ……….. and they are in bondage ………..

        • Ambulance Chaser

          Oh really? Then show me the proof.

          • Amos Moses

            and what “proof” would you accept ………….

          • Ambulance Chaser

            A study, conducted to scientific standards, and published in a respected journal, that indicates that a statistically significant number of people have been cured of being trans.

          • Amos Moses

            Your statement was ……….. “Transgender people cannot be “cured.””

            so that would seem to say that it is impossible …. is that your contention …………. that it is not possible …………

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Excuse me, but don’t change the subject. You said “yes they can,” so I want to see proof.

            You made a statement, now back it up.

          • Amos Moses

            i want to determine if you think it is impossible …. if you do then nothing i show you would convince you …. if it is a journal of whatever calibre … anything else ……..

          • Ambulance Chaser

            I think, according to our current understanding, it is impossible. However, I’m willing to change my mind if shown new evidence. I’m still waiting for you to show me some.

          • Amos Moses

            No you wont …. you wont accept the evidence …. just watch everyone ………..

            And it all refutes your nonsense ………..

          • Ambulance Chaser

            It would refute it, if it was what I asked for. Youtube videos are not evidence. Would you be happy if I gave you a YouTube video of someone saying the opposite? Of course not. So I won’t insult you by doing that.

            I’m not moving any goalposts here. I told you what I needed and you ignored me.

          • Amos Moses

            “Youtube videos are not evidence”

            it is their testimony …. and it is evidence ….. if it was a “peer reviewed report” it would be “scientists” talking to people, taking surveys, compling responses …. …. there is no difference …… i do not have to “move the goalposts” ….. i would move them closer …. but you cant kick in any event ……….

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Absolutely, categorically false. The fact that you would say such a thing indicates how little you understand about the phenomenon.

            There are distinct biological differences between the brains of transgender people and cisgender people. Scientific American has an article that gives a good overview of how it works.

            The study of gender dysphoria is not simply scientist asking survey questions to people.

          • Amos Moses

            So what does the APA use to biopsy a supposed transgender ………. and you know what …… the testimony of the persons presented absolutely refute any proposition that they cannot change or even that it is unchangeable ………… that idea is absolute bullhockey ……….. and thoughts like yours keep those people enslaved to the idea that they are incapable of changing ……………. THAT is TRULY hateful ……..

            “Sorry little S/HE person … you are not able to change ….. go suffer in silence while I give you a lollipop and a pat on the head ………..”

          • PattyJM

            Right. Because your understanding is based not on facts but on religion.

            FYI a person can change their religion. A person cannot change their gender identity

          • Amos Moses

            No ….. we are talking about this other persons understanding … or lack thereof ….. “A person cannot change their gender identity” …… baloney …. and no scientific proof either …… no scientific proof it is an “identity” …….. that is just made up poppycock …….

        • Triamene

          Ambulance Chaser is quite correct. You cannot “cure” transgendered people.

          • Amos Moses

            All sin can be cured……. Well healed…….

          • Triamene

            It is not sin.

          • Amos Moses

            Yes ….. it is …………

          • Triamene

            I will accept the words of science on this matter and not of angry conservative Christians, thanks.

          • Amos Moses

            no anger ………. accept from you …… you are angry at the truth ……….. and your problem ….. not the rest of the world …………. FYI, you have no science ….. you have a corrupted pseudo-science ….. which is not science ……….

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    People have rights to the truth. A person is the gender which God has given – the gender born with, and everyone has a right to address to the person with that birth gender. Doing otherwise is submission to a falsehood. Falsehood is slavery. One has a right not to call any female “pastor” a pastor either, because woman has no spiritual authority over man. Declaring and doing the truth is the freedom.

  • Chet

    In asking the driver how he/she preferred to be addressed, the officer is incorrect altogether. The driver should have been addressed by the name on the operator’s license, period. He may have preferred to be called Prince so and so, or money man, noting that neither were true… Whatever gender God almighty formed one to be in birth is the gender one will be at death. Due to cancer, war or accident, a man can lose his private parts. Nevertheless, he’s still a man, period… This lunatic nonsense is in synch with America’s “fundamental transformation” under duress of the last eight years or so. No more, come Nov. Dear God willing, no more…
