Lawrence City Commission approves gender identity ordinance

Actually, I looked into it, and you can go back and change your birth certificate to whatever you perceive yourself as being, even without surgery (in Kansas). Is that "educated and informed" enough for you Mensa candidates out there?

Could NOT have voiced these sentiments BETTER.
Ever. "Feeling of the day" Restroom!. ---lol, even if it's serious, it's so self-absorbed and perfect for those who are so completely at the center of their own existence.
Thanks CB, U made it a GREAT day!! : )

City Commission to formally hear debate on gender identity ordinance

Go ahead and point it out, given the disposal of THIS city, there cannot be more that ONE flaw in ANY sentence that I wrote about this issue. Especially if you are predisposed towards the left, which it sounds like you may be. Also, I did not outline FACTS, just possiblities.

City Commission to formally hear debate on gender identity ordinance

Seriously, this will allow that arrangement of allowing actual guys--- in "drag", to go into the restroom, because they look exactly like women, unless their tool box were exposed, and EVEN THEN, there MAY BE NO immediate problem. Some individuals really DO just want to go to their own "identified gender" group public restroom, to relieve themselves, and they'll "act" just like whatever gender they percieve themselves as..... I'll be practical, and say, "ok" ---because it's better than having them trying to use another place, since they're too terrified to use the mens' room. Seems to me if you have the gumption to possibly go through all the surgery that this kind of extreme makeover might require, a restroom wouldn't be such a challenge...but anyway, I digress:

Down the line, this also protects someone's "right" to use the female changing rooms at the public pool, and something WILL happen.
A lawyer got up at the last meeting, to speak against this issue, he had defended transexuals, crossdressers, etc., he was not criticizing the act, but classifying it for being a style (of life, perception or what-have-you) that can harbour some "not-so-nice" people, besides you multitudes of completely deserving folks whose "rights" are being so terribly violated...... This attorney pretty much outlined that the bottom line WILL be a lawsuit against Lawrence, when something DOES happen to a little girl in that dressing room. He was very succinct and matter of fact about the very, VERY large likelyhood that an incident WILL EVENTUALLY HAPPEN. And we will foot the bill on what the court will award to the victim.

'It's heartbreaking': Families adjust to homeless life together at shelter

"Regardless of my income"? Are you kidding me? My parents told me flat out that I'd better be able to raise and feed any children I might deign to produce. Is "responsibility" an ugly word for you? I bet it is.

There was a dishonorable discharge from the military here. That should tell you something. Sorry but it should, that's a warning flag. How about moving the SRS closer to KC?

Closings and cancellations for Thursday, Feb. 3, 2011

Everybody I talked to has said there is school tomorrow due to the fact that the streets are plowed in Lawrence, I know somebody in Perry who just told me the streets are clear, a relative in N Lawrence ditto, along with a friend who lives out by Clinton lake. Has anybody heard of scarves these days?

This was a quote from you (Jamminalive) regarding scarves....neither you nor kaybray95 connect to what replies are referring to, and kaybray.....i was quoting Groucho Marx, it was a joke and probably you didn't get it.

Oh yeah? Well, I believe in Santa Claus....On the other hand....Maybe I'll try a scarf on the imaginary snow out there, so my pitiful 06 Civic can take flight over hill and dale as the crow flies, all the way to ...what was that about believing? Oh yeah, scarves might help with the cul-de-sac 2-foot deep snow clearance....for school transportation, responsibility, civilization continuing, etc...
....On the other hand, water is water and east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now, uh, now....you tell me what YOU know....

Negative seven is not just "cold". Unless you have attire which is designed for that kind of frigid temp, you will not be able to avoid problems with prolonged exposures. Yes: I mean "prolonged" equals 20-30 minutes. Or 15 minutes for an elementary school-aged student. Also: Walmart doesn't sell outerwear of that construction. (Duh). If we don't get our street (and....gulp...cul-de-sac) cleared at least once by tomorrow morning, our elementary school will get an absent call.

Like one more day matters at this point? Do you really think that it will rule out any chance of medical school admission? Somebody, go ahead.... make a typical Lawrencian argument against that statement. I love it.
