Since We Are On The Subject


And all of Wise County says together, "They've got rights?"

Apparently, yes. State law says if an individual has a sex change then that person can marry someone of the opposite sex. (Or, put another way, of the sex that person used to be.)

But this Republican dominated legislature, with the backing of Rick Perry, wants to change that. How this didn't become "emergency legislation" for those guys at the start of the session is shocking.

Side note: A Google search of one of the sponsors shows she has some priorities that don't surprise me:

wtf does rick perry know. he and his republican slime need to mind their own business and quit trying to tell folks who the f to marry.

it is invevitable that one day gays, lesbians, transgendered folks will be able to marry as they wish. and polls are supporting this. these dumb*sses need to crawl out of the stoneage and get with the program. f the texas constituion.

Speaking of sensitivity training...

I need to know what the words mean: "transgendered woman." Is that a chick who is now a dude, or is that a dude who is now a chick?

Isn't there an easier way to describe these people?

If someone is willing to have their nether regions carved up by a surgeon's scalpel, then subject themselves to constant ongoing hormone treatment, they have earned the right to marry a 1949 Ford pickup if they so wish IMHO. Honestly, Texas, we are worrying about this sort of tripe?

How can Republicans claim to love small government so much when they insist on getting into everyone's personal business? People should be able to feel at home in their own bodies, and it's not the government's business to dictate who people marry.

If we left all illegals at the office of a US Senator or Rep. that would simply be giving them access to cheap labor. Probably have the cleanest offices and neatest lawns of all Senators and Reps within a month!

Ron Burgundy: Brick, are you just looking at things in the office and saying that you love them?

Brick Tamland: I love lamp.

Ron Burgundy: Do you really love the lamp, or are you just saying it because you saw it?

Brick Tamland: I love lamp. I love lamp.

Transgendered people can marry.....but there had better be a law specifying that the transgendered person has to tell their partner they used to be a man/woman because that woman in that picture looks like a legitimate woman!

LMAO on hearing ANY Democrat and Liberal say Republicans are getting into people's personal business!

That is laughable for sure!

WHO GIVES A CRAP WHO MARRIES WHO?

Sheesh.

Perhaps the Gov should have gone for the trifecta by submitting an emergency bill banning voter fraud by transgendered people in sanctuary cities. That way he could set up three straw men and knock them all over with one shot from his coyote gun. He is a bigger freakin' joke than Bill Clements ever dreamed of being.

The GOP is TOTALLY against big government, except for cases where they feel they have the moral right to make everyone else do what they want. Some examples include gays marrying and/or having children, women having abortions, everyone speaking English, etc. But when it comes to any sort of government aid or regulations on big business, then government is BAD!

It makes the kind of sense that's not.

Im really suprised at how much ignorance there really is in Texas. God help us if they allow same sex marriage. Sodom and Gomorrah ring a bell.

Are we sure that Lois Kolkhorst isn't a dude? Is that an adams apple?

235 - Quite a list, and a couple of them I'll agree with you on. You'll need to make your case about some of them. Examples:
- Gambling. The legislation to legalize gambling in Texas was introduced by a bipartisan group.
- Drugs & hookers. Maybe something showing these laws were not passed by Democrats?
- "Defining science, polluting the environment, etc." Just some explanation. Of some kind.
- Abortion. Since abortion deprives a baby of life, you could say this is the most severe intrusion possible into someone's life. It ends it.

Sex changes are not actually sex changes. It's all cosmetic. A transgendered person does not actually change gender.

Some college applications list sex choices as male, female, transgendered and other. OTHER? Not kidding...other.

Mr. Mike Honcho, so it's OK to marry a 10 year old if you want to, then? We do need some laws in this regard.

Skipped Gambling, too much interpretation of fuzzy math required. Hit me. I'm all in.

Drugs, if you use the Harrison Act of 1914 as your measuring stick, the US Congress in both houses was a democratic majority.

Hookers, if you use the laws passed by the US Congress in 1875 to make prostitution illegal, then the majority of both houses was republican.

Defining science....staying away from that one. e=mc squared.

Abortion, if you use the Supreme Court decision of 1973 and the US Congress make up in 1973 as your measure, then the majority of both houses were democratic.

Governments need to get out of the marriage business. I thought marriage was a religious ritual. If your church only wants to marry men and women, so be it. If they want to allow gay marriages, so be it. If they allow men to marry goats, I don't really care because there is no economic, political, or legal effect if governments aren't in the marriage business.

*slaps forehead after reading 6:20 pm*

No. I dont think you should be able to marry a minor. I do think the sublties of this blog are a bit much for you.

I am married, straight, very conservative, and decidely less republican as I read more crap like this. Marry the same sex if you want. Hell, marry a cow if you want. I dont care. It sure as heck doesn't make me feel "less" married.

Why is it sooooooo bloody difficult for some people to realize, the only people's sex lives that are any of their concern is their own and the person/people with whom they are having sex? People who believe they have the right to dictate the personal sexual behaviour of other adults are just WRONG.
