If we are truly modest, we would like single-person restrooms instead of having to share them with anybody.
They usually put little shields between the urinals. It wasn't always like that.
Getting back to the sitting business, why should it matter to me whether there is a man or a woman in the next stall? There is still a next stall with somebody in it.
What I'm saying is I wish there wasn't another stall with someone in it.
1. Some men are born without the ability to reproduce (impotency, birth defect, etc.).
2. Some are made eunuchs, a common practice at the time.
3. Some make themselves eunuchs for the sake of the Kingdom of Heaven. This is figurative language, IMHO. It doesn’t mean that they emasculate themselves in order to get to heaven but that they forsook congress with women (practiced some form of celibacy) in order to devote themselves to a religious lifestyle, as was the case with the Essenes among the Jews of 1st Century Palestine.
I seriously doubt that Jesus would have conceived of the transgendered, let alone been “cool” with them.
a few things....1st of all some people really need to get out more.....the world is NOT black and white....sometimes the mind does not fit the plumbing and what about hermaphrodites??? Also one of the BIG problems in this country is how we equate NUDITY with sex....it's not black and white and one has nothing to do with the other...additionally not ALL transgendered peeps want to have re-assignment surgery so again please get out and educate yourself and for anyone talking about taking this child away from the parents...SERIOUSLY!!!
So who has the problem? The parents who want their child to use whatever bathroom is available or the school who made accomadations?
My children are my legacy.
If people are truly transgendered in that they are one sex in their mind, yet are living in a body of the other and it is caused physically, do you think He would condemn them for something that is no fault of their own?
Honestly, I am not smart enough to know the answers to these questions. But I have a hard time believing He will condemn someone who was born the way there are. Can I tell you who is born that way and who may have mental issues, no. Do you think He condemns people who have mental problems through no fault of their own?
(*) We have such a wide assortment these days. Jesus the Flaming Liberal, Jesus the Rock Solid Conservative, Jesus the Gay Rights Advocate, Jesus the Abortion Lover, Jesus the Women’s Libber, Jesus the Mystic, the Magician, the Hippie Philosopher, the Radical, the Socialist, the Revolutionary, Jesus the You Name It, and yes, now, the Jesus who is “cool” with the transgender. Somehow the real Jesus – the flesh and blood man who was mostly a pious/reforming Jew who lived in 1st Century Palestine and was most probably killed by the Romans for being a little too much of a rabble rouser for their tastes – has pretty much disappeared intot he backwarters of everyone's self-interests.
The parents are trying to protect their daughter from discrimination due to her medical condition - what about her rights?
