So what is real?  Is the sun real?  I suppose it's not made of real "matter"....

It's made of hydrogen, helium, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, carbon, aluminum, copper, and many other elements. Sounds like matter to me.

That was my point.

I think if this "Bridget" believes she is a woman, then there is no doubt that she should stay.

Just my 2 cents

Being very late to the controversy, I found myself having to vote No. I wasn't really sure for a while, but Womanwich finally convinced me.

I'm surprised at the depth of bonerjoe's  comment.  Walter(now Wendy) Carlos arranged this synth version of the choral movement from Beethoven's 9th Symphony that bonerjoe posted for the movie A Clockwork Orange.   S(he) is also a transexual.  H(er/is) album The Well Tempered Synthesizer is worth checking out, as she is one of the pioneers of synth music, and even helped Robert Moog develop the first commercially available synthesizer.

Yes.

Heres my two cents, plus a nickle for your troubles.  For all you dimwits, that equals seven cents.  But, its not seven pennies, it is a sum total of value.  Bridget considers herself to be a woman, and that is the sum total of opinions worth any value in this conversation. 

Your opinion is of no value, nor is mine, in her identity.  In fact, it was pretty ballsy (pun intended) to disclose this information for the purpose of an interesting discussion.  However, there is no clause in FTL's acceptance policy, other than "female" and "verified".  They verify by a sign, which she supplied.  If they wish to dispute the scientific identification of the Shriners, they should do it across the board.  Bridget willingly provided the info, but didnt have to.  Either way, you still must take her word, only in this case it is her word that dropped the hammer on this whole discussion in the first place.  So, logic dictates if her word is the verification of her gender, why not accept it ?  She says shes a woman, accept her word on it.  The scientific argument is worthless in this case. 

The verification process is to eliminate jokes and pranks.  I doubt very much she considers this to be a joke. 

I would argue the opposite side of the coin if we were talking about identifying a person for legal purposes, like a murder trial or some other more serious subject, but that concept does not apply in this situation. 

...And now that I've spoken my mind with a slight measure of class, I would also like to say a big Fuck You to the assholes who believe they are supportive of individual liberties, yet held an opinion opposite of mine.   Its a victimless scenario, there is no possible backlash in this topic (or most of the other situations which could arise in transgender) which would infringe on any other person.   

Edit-  One thing did occour to me, which I failed to mention...  This is FTL's forum, so they can do whatever they want.  It really wasn't part of the argument I constructed, because it seems very obvious to me and I overlooked it.  They dont have to offer a reason for their actions, they own their property, and can use it as they see fit.   I don't have an opinion at all on what they should do in that respect.  But, if it were mine, I would allow the photo.

ugh. just let this thing die.

but allow me to sum this up (for all the newbies, such as yourself)

the point isn't whether it's violating someone's rights (we both agree no rights are being denied either way).  It's ironic b/c your koom-by-ya/include everyone-no-matter-what take sounds very non-libertarian in nature, (however maybe you don't claim to be a libertarian either) and more along the lines of the PC trash that socialists try and push. Ah, but I digress. Take no offense.

the point is to create a special area, for certain individuals, and it's a priviledge to be classed under based on their physical gender (and it doesnt' matter if they have a mental delusion which results in them thinking so).

Why not just make another special shrine for transgenders, witches, pixies or people who think they're the re-incarnation of Elvis?  Leave the Female shrine to actual Females, not people w/ delusions.
