Identity disorders. Let's not forget these

The "transabled"

those with "Body integrity identity disorder"

Not a laughing matter either. These folks claim to identify with other folks that have disabilities and some maim themselves to complete the transition. In some cases, a person will artificially incapacitate themselves and take on the role of a person with that particular handicap. Perhaps someone will immobilize one or both legs. In extreme cases, they'll blind themselves or have limbs amputated.

My (rhetorical) question, given the current issues with rights for those who feel imposed upon due to their gender identity, is should we give the same rights to these people as to those with genuine disabilities. Should a person who identifies as being disabled be permitted to park in designated spaces for such people? Should a person who has healthy limbs amputated be permitted to take the extra tax break for the handicapped? The list of potential benefits is a rather long one.

(NT) Those with gender identity don't hurt themselves or others.

"hurt" comes in different forms, Diana.....

You don't believe that a young girl will be traumatized by having to view male genitalia in a school shower/locker room or having to undress herself in front of him? At an age when a girl is already comparing herself to others of the same sex, she shouldn't be required to now add a male to the mix. There are far more issues at stake than liberals want to admit to.....as I've said before: Liberals look for short term answers and never are held accountable for the long term affects of those decisions/actions.

I suspect that since is so close to the election for our next leader, BO has just shot HC in the foot with his Chicago thug tactics of threatening States. This will backfire badly on the Dems all for his untimely agenda built around his own personal ego.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
