Re: Bruce Springsteen cancels concert in NC over "bathroom l

People who are born in women's' bodies also transition. I would be fine with a trans person in the men's room. It is the peeing and washing the hands that is most important. I don't think that there are standing urinals in women's restrooms that a pre-op transperson can just whip it out and wave it ...

Re: Bruce Springsteen cancels concert in NC over "bathroom l

Good on Bruce. I am sorry for the people who travelled to see him, so I hope they have some compassion for trans people who need to pee! I think the issue is actually less complicated than more. It is not about pedophiles, it is not even about trans people. It is only about the governmental authoriz...

Re: Evolution vs Creationism...what do you believe?

Evolution and creationism are not two sides of an argument, they are not two sides of the same coin. One is science, the other is superstition.

In Latin the infinitive form is a single word so you can't split it. I agree with MariaD . kenny knew he could have used "misunderstood" to better effect. But then we wouldn't have had this thread. ;)) I still hate split infinitives in English and I do not care who splits them; I will sti...

gold bond powder. it is what my vet said to do for murry and it always worked. use the powder and the cone when you are not there, should be over in a week. with murry it was between the pads of his paws, so i would fill a baby sock with powder, put it on him and secure it with blue tape. magic.

If dark green is the best, and dark red is the worst, then what of the places devoid of color, like Outer Mongolia? Perhaps those places are just bad to be in regardless of sexuality.?
