Why must they feel they are superior to everyone else? Why must they try to enforce what they think is God's will? Obviously I can only be speaking of a particula group "The Religious Extremists". Now, they are having a fit about the new Transgender Character in "All My Children". Afraid they (AMC) are creating a trend, as if we are some new fashion statement or some " in" thing. For someone who claims to be so knowledgable in history, they really know nothing at all. Do they not realize we have been around since the begining of time? That we are so much a part of God's creation as all the variety and beauty he/she has created. What is wrong with this bunch? They are one track minded just like their beliefs. Everything has to be black or white, boy or girl, this or that. Let me ask you this, is there only one kind of flower? Or only one species and variety of animals? What about the trees? The world is full of variation, mutations and evolution which continues to create exceptional changes. So why must we feel that there is only two genders and that man is meant to be with only woman or visa versa. Why must we continue to seperate and segragate each other and pick on our differences, instead of rejoycing with every fiber of our being. If God truly intended for us to be clones and so ridget in our everybeing, then we would act, be programed and designed in that fashion, but we are not. He made us the way we are and that's that. So give God more credit, he is not some boring old guisard who cannot chew gum and walk at the same time. His divine creations are just that, devine and with much variety, just like the different colors of the rainbow. Oh and please realize that homosexuality is not the same thing as transsexuality. One, refers to an attraction of the same gender, the other is a persons identity. Gender, sex, and sexual preference are three different things. Gender is hard wired in your brain at 8 weeks time in your mother's womb, before you are even born. (Depending on the hormonal mix and where you fall in the gender/sex continuum). Sex refers to the physical components in your body such as your genitals, gonads, and reproductive organs which by the way should be congruent if all goes as planned. Finally, sexual preference, well that is self explanitory. Its who you want to be with emotionally and are physically attracted to. So, I know its hard, since most of you are one track minded, its a characteristic that most Religious Extremists have, but please open your minds and let more than bible versus fill up your neurons. If there is a God lets give him or her more respect and stop tyring to put words into his or her mouth. Just Love unconditionally, as God has requested us to do and leave us be.
