    Let’s do a test, you might just be feeling a little under the weather. Can those same children consent to undergo “gender reassignment”?
    No. Which is why gender reassignment surgery is never performed on children.

    (Except, unfortunately, in some cases involving intersex people)

    Unless you think that trans people don't actually exist...

    But here's the latest attempt.

    I find it odd that these folks talk about things like "the LGBT community" as if it is a community that is grounded in some commonality.

    Now we're at the point where it's all very mix-and-match - everyone just picks from the massive set of initials that relate to these various groups. No doubt they upset some sub-group in the process, no matter how hard they try to be inclusive.

    Teachers federation conducts 'LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP' training | Daily Mail Online

    "The Canadian Elementary Teachers Federation (ETFO) of Ontario hosted a LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP inclusiveness training session on June 6.

    The acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Demisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Twospirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Allies, Pansexual and Polyamorous."
    Well you can't have inclusiveness training without listing the people included in the training, can you?

    Why on earth would this be a problem for you?

    Some of the Gay people I know (including a sibling) take issue with being grouped in with transgender.

    The same number as cisgender. Zero. Gender is a social construct.
    There are dogs of the male sex, bitches of female sex and a tiny small minority which are neither, unclassifiable, or both.
    Same with pussy cats, sea-horses, and humans (though judging by this site there are quite a few insecure Male bitchez)

    Gender is what you are born with, In my case meat and two veg. Now no matter how hard I try to feel it I will never be a 5'5 blonde blue eyed old doll with Pamela Anderson knockers.

    All that cisgender stuff is rubbish you have two genders and two sexes male and female. The rest is liberal lube liners looking to make something from mental illness.

    - implanting chemical-laden electrodes in human organs
    - studying patterns of distribution of salt and pepper cellars on dinner tables in IKEA catalogues

    You can guess which "researcher" is also an LGBT hack.
    That's a nice story you just made up.
