Never has there been a human who has claimed to be a bird, not one who wasn’t having a mental break or highly overdosed on drugs and not enough for there ever to be a recorded trend of such a thing.

That….is a very dangerous road to go down, as far as arguments go. It can be easily turned around and quoted as a statement that all transgendered people have had mental breakdowns; and as you and I both know, the mental health record of many transgendered people is spotty at best.

We wouldn’t be having this national debate if the suicide rates weren’t off the charts, and society weren’t trying to come to grips with a way to accomodate gender-fluid people without stepping on anyone else’s strongly held views and religious beliefs.
