      For instance, a biological boy who identifies as a girl demands to use the girl's restroom at school because he feels uncomfortable using the boy's restroom. So he's allowed to use the girl's restroom and no longer feels uncomfortable.

      However, there are certainly a number of girls who now feel very uncomfortable sharing a girl's restroom with a biological male. For the sake of argument, let's say that most of the girls don't have an issue with it. That it is only a small percent, a mere 10% of the girl's who are uncomfortable.

      What you ended up doing then by changing everything so as to make one student feel comfortable was to make a minimum of 50+ other students uncomfortable. Why should 50+ students be made uncomfortable just so one student isn't?
      We live in strange times. And they are getting stranger by the week.

      Brings to mind R A Heinlein's, Time Enough for Love, or one of the Lazarus Long stories, anyway. Lazarus being termed "the old queer" because he was straight.

        Back when British General Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington at Yorktown, thereby effectively ending the American Revolutionary War, his troops marched out of Yorktown to the tune "The World Turned Upside Down."


        I suggest we make that the theme song for the 21st century.

            Sometimes I mess up on purpose so I can be gracious and allow somebody to correct me, then be the bigger man and admit I goofed.

            The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

              And of course there was that time that you thought you had made a mistake, but it turned out you were wrong.

                  That's funny. I have a similar problem with "saying" that you're riiii... riighhhhh... rrrrrriiiii... That you are completely wrong this one time.
