Why, thanks, Severn. Aren't those great!

I am enjoying the no cat hair or litterbox, frankly. Also had long talk with that son and now completely agree with his having taken, and keeping, the cat.

Other kid is back out. Sigh. We shall see. Meanwhile thanks for the concern!

Mrrzy, have you heard the song that Ireland is presenting for the Eurovision Song Contest? It's excellent, and the video (on Youtube) expresses so well the right people have to present themselves as they wish.
The song is called 'Story of My Life' and the singer is Lesley Roy.
Hope Ireland wins with this song!

My sister was a militant LGBT activist with some influence and power
in her regional city based community..
We were never sure if she was primarily Gay, Bi, or Asexual celibate...???

She died a few years before Transgender identity issues
became so prominent in mainstream media and culture..
But I feel fairly certain she would have felt compelled to latch on
and promote herself to prominent spokesperson...

We didn't get on too well because although I was reasonably progressive, well informed
and sympathetic to her cause,
I found her to be quite an obnoxious individual in her hostility to 'straight' society...

It complicated the usual normal sibling antagonisms...

Genders in languages are an absolute scourge to decline (I'd really like to 'decline' them!) German was very hard for me to get to grips with. "Der die das den dem deren dessen ein eine einen einer einem" blah blah blooming blah!
Mandarin and Cantonese are blissful, having no definitive articles at all. One merely says 'Horse black' or 'Cat on sofa' etc.

We voted yesterday. Biden won though most people I know voted for Bernie.

Virginia does not register by party so republicans and independents can vote in the democratic primary if they so choose. Don't think many do, though.

French having gender doesn't bother me but German having neuter and then a)not using it for all inanimate objects and b)using it for young women (! Female virgins are neuter!) does. But there is no third-person neutral pronoun in French so him and her are used for inanimate objects, so I'm way more ok with being misgendered in French... As female as a fork/male as a
knife, fine.

Hungarian has no gender. They have words for gendered beings like man or woman, stallion or mare etc, but no grammatical gender and no gendered pronouns, not that they use a lot of pronouns anyway.

Jeri, we have something in common.
As fascinated as I am with languages,
gender absolutely defeats me in language.
Native speakers of languages other than English,
languages that have genders, have attempted to explain to me
what it's like to take for granted that places, things, and concepts, as well as persons, have genders.
And I just totally give up. I doubt that it will ever have sense to me.

Mrrzy, was Virginia part of Super Tuesday
or does Virginia's presidential primary election come later?

In real life, I will mess up pronouns like crazy, no matter how much respect I have for people. In writing, I don't have so much of a problem. Typing filter better than mouth filter. Bottom line for me is that people would get to define themselves. Names (as in "my name is ____, but I prefer to be called ____." and gender and what clothes they want to wear or haircuts or politics or music or... you know. Their own stuff.

Every single person we meet on any given day is going to be different from everyone else. It makes my life easier if I see things like that. No round pegs or square holes. Just a pile of jigsaw puzzle pieces.

And one big problem we have with people and gender, IMO, is language. When I first started learning French, I was amazed that even objects had genders. There ARE gender neutral languages.

I get the concept of non-binary now. We don't all have to fit into one or the other category of gender, or the multitude of places along that continuum. Non-binary is neither one nor the other. To paraphrase what one of the people in the documentary said, what difference does it make to other people anyway?

You are what you are. We are all what we are.

God/Creator help us all. How low can some people go and still be called human?

I have not heard of that case, but please don't tell me. I've heard of enough other cases to last a lifetime.

Did you try the hair chalk again? Some people lighten a bit or all of their hair to white or blonde so that the colour shows up better. I'm "lucky". My hair is starting to go white from above my forehead and near my temples so the bright colours work really well on that part.

Charmion, I agree with that. An adult decision should be made by the person when s/he is an adult. Otherwise it is a legal minefield.

It's tough for the young adults having to wait to take control of their lives but I think there should be legal capability to make a decision on their own behalf.

The TV documentary link is here:

Four Corners: Not a boy, not a girl

Look for that title which was aired 3 March 2020.

It will only be available for a limited time and I really don't know if it can be viewed from outside of Australia. The link I posted before to the news article will cover most of what is discussed in the documentary.

Mrrzy, that kind of surgery is often barred by the ethics code of state and provincial medical associations except in very rare cases, and the onus is very much on the patient (or, more correctly, the patient's parent or guardian) to prove that it is in the patient's best interest.

In Canada, the medical professions clearly prefer to avoid irreversible treatment for gender dysphoria in any person who has yet to reach the age of majority. Huge malpractice liability is thus ducked.
