    Exculpate myself from what?

    My accusations are well-founded. You continue to misrepresent TG's views on what they believe and why they sometimes choose to undergo surgery. And to do so in a VERY transparent manner. If your position was strong, you wouldn't need to do that, would you? So maybe it's time to give up the opposition to this?




    No. It's didn't "whoosh right by me". I purposely ignored it because playing "b-b-b-b-ut Obama!" with you is silly. Why let you drag the conversation into that nonsense? It's bad enough you had already decided to bring up peepees once again.
    Lol, it's like arguing with a toddler... who thinks he's being ironic.

    How often do you hear the phrase "used to be a man/woman"? There's an obvious implication that sex can be changed with surgery. And if you don't swallow that notion, you're a hatey intolerant bigot. Come on, man. At least own up to your demagoguery. Sheesh!

      What about the people? That's where we have to draw a line. If it's strictly a political or even a religious idiology, that's one thing. When someone does it because of a skin color and/or a different language being used, come on guys, that's a whole 'nother smoke.
      Are white Christians really less tolerant? Less tolerant than what? Or whom? Maybe more white Christians are more racist than the same group was ages ago? Are they more racist than, say, Latino Christians? Or black Christians? What's their comparative tolerance of whites?

      I myself have become less tolerant of people who are less tolerant. I've grown to not tolerate intolerant people. Their intolerence is something I tolerate a lot less in my intolerant older years. If you can't tolerate that you're being intolerent.
      And another thing, what are radical Muslims doing? Are some bigoted against whites? Or maybe white Christians specifically? Wouldn't that also be bigoted and possibly racist behavior?

        I don't care what "obvious implications" you think exist. Who is making these implications? Who says "used to be"? The TGs themselves? I don't think so. Not very often. Why do you choose THIS implication and completely ignore the one from the TGs themselves who instead say things like "born a man/woman"?

        That you can only formulate an argument on this topic by deliberately misrepresenting the other side's beliefs is really all that needs to be said.

          So, stereotyping people according to ideologies is acceptable? The nature of ideolicies makes that permissable? Are there no variance within an ideology?
          The OP is also addressing people within an ideology...they are all the same, as long as they're white.

            Okey doke. But it's not a misrepresentation if you understand what the phrase "used to be" means.

              It's not a misrepresentation if I agree to use the phrase that is the misrepresentation?

                I do my best to practice the Christian doctrine of "hate the sin, love the sinner". That I despise ideology, inclusive of religion, isn't exactly a secret. But I do love people, and try to love them in spite of what I might perceive as their shortcomings... right up to the point when people (individually) prove themselves unworthy.

                  "Used to be" is s complete misrepresentation of "have always been".

                      I think some people define white bigotry as, any white person that does not hold a deep desire to be a minority in their own country. That seems to be the agenda here.

                        Some people may. However bigotry isn't bigoted. It shows up in people of all makes and models

                              I'm sorry you have a problem with that statement, you're welcome to elaborate if you'd like. I did say "some people"
