I'm skulking, not lurching...lurching is a physical movement...unless you are referring to me lurching over in laughter! You've called me out for lying about people (who?), oppressing people (a hipster lumberjack in a dress or dirty old uncles?), and poorly formed arguments (duh...) based off of one misunderstood sentence, perhaps that I could have phrased better, that you chose to rant on at me about. You seem to have an invested interest transgendered individuals but somehow am unaware of a reference to Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Go watch it, you'll love it. Same goes for The Birdcage. Go spend sometime in the village in NYC or Boys Town in Chicago and you'll meet some pretty awesome transgendered folks.
A civilized country helps individuals come to accept and love themselves as who they are, not help them further down a path of self-loathing through sex change, botox, and other efforts to get themselves on the cover of Vogue; you don't have to agree but I'm not aware of anyone being happy at the end of that tunnel. And besides, it should be very clear to you that America is hardly the definition of civilized after watching recent political events.
