I thought this happened a long while back, but I guess he's finished the process?  I'll still refer to them as the Wachowski Brothers 'cause well, they are.

I know I am hopelessly old fashioned, but sex change operations seemed to me like the ultimate expression of utter contempt for God.  For crying out loud, if He meant for you to be a girl He would have made you one!!!

I can't claim to understand it.  But I do believe people have the right to be who they want to be.  Even if they may seem physically unattractive.

In your opinion (you forgot that bit). People can do what they want. They will continue to do what they want regardless of what other people think they should be doing. They're happy, so don't go getting bent out of shape over how strangers are leading their lives. Indy, you're not having a sex change, so your god will be cool. I'm sure you won't end up in hell with a ton of plastic surgeons and transgender members of the public.  Wink

Yeah, I seem to recall hearing stories about this while they were still making the Matrix trilogy.  I feel bad for people with gender/sex identity issues - it seems like a very difficult thing to deal with, and the US has to be one of the worst places in the West to live with such issues.  Then again, the Wachowski's are extremely rich, so it's probably easier for this one than most.

I know, I know,  but still .  . . in my PERSONAL OPINION . . . Eeeeeeeeeew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Buggedout

What do you think God intended for the intersexed?  Genuinely curious.  I'd always figured that must be a conundrum for followers of biblical religion when you consider the differences, especially in the Old Testament, in the treatment of men and women, but I don't think I've ever heard a discussion on it.  It's fairly obvious American society as a whole is uncomfortable with the whole thing.

It reminds me of a short autobiographical story I read once, about a part-American Indian person who was born with strong characteristics of both sexes.  The Indian grandmother thought it a blessing, essentially; the converted Christian parents thought it a literally Satanic curse.

Weird. Plain old weird.On a different subject=why is the fast food gay thread locked? Are we not allowed to talk about this? Whars up?
I aint been here a couple days-been working alot and been at Tina's-why cant we discuss this without calling each  hateful?
And this is coming from ME-a very radical person. I believe a person can do whatever they want-when they try to push there beliefs on you-f**k em.
Right wing-left wing-f**kem. I dont have wings. If you dont have wings you can fly.
If it aint hurting people-leave them alone.Your gods and politics seem to be polorizing bulls**t-and the source of reasons to kill each other-its insane and stupid.

This is exactly the problem. Certain people keep bringing up topics and expressing their views on it when they know full well other people will instantly disagree. Unfortuntely these people constantly feel the need to keep telling us what is apparently "wrong" and something that they cannot get their heads around due to either religious or political belief. We will all continue to butt heads over these "issues" each time a topic like this pops up. I fully understand and respect that everyone has different opinions on things, but when it comes to judging people's lives and "casting stones" I really don't see the point of trying to hammer home your religious views in particular. If your god judges all people, then let him do it and stop coming on a nice internet forum and filling it with ignorant bile. FACT - You cannot stop homosexuality or people having sex changes. FACT - they are doing you no harm. Leave them alone. It's all because "you weren't raised that way and you don't understand it."

The Bible actually says things to that effect. Of course, few people find it to their advantage to quote those parts at everyone. Even to people who believe the whole thing without question, the Bible is a smorgasbord. Take a bunch of what you like and leave the rest.

Quote
FACT - You cannot stop homosexuality or people having sex changes. FACT - they are doing you no harm. Leave them alone.

That's pretty much the conclusion I finally came to. Even Indy acknowledges that they aren't necessarily bad people or doing harm to anyone else. If it's all a matter of their relationship with God, then that's strictly their business and nobody else's.

I was curious as to how people felt about the controversy, because I enjoy the opinions of everyone here - including yours, Circus!  I didn't even know Naku was still around.  But, he did pretty much what I said he would do in my initial response to his post - he got the thread locked down. 

And yeah, the Westboro Baptist shot was probably a low blow on my part.


But why have an off topic discussion board if we can't enjoy the occasional off topic discussion?
