Harvard Introduces Third Gender
Knight Rips Ivy League School for Giving Credibility to 'Transgenderism'

By Jim Brown
July 25, 2006

(AgapePress) - Prospective applicants to prestigious Harvard Business School no longer have to be of the male or female gender. One pro-family leader in Washington, DC, is criticizing the school for legitimizing transgenderism.  (more)

Transgendered or not, they still have a sex;  bodily changes not withstanding, their DNA would tell the truth.  Perhaps instead, they should require a DNA test before admitting students? *snicker*

Why not just remove the gender question entirely?

Oh, yeah.  That would make it harder to discriminate.   ::lookaround::

No, no, no tidbit -- they want to make sure they have enough women for their quota -- it has nothing (nothing at all!) to do with disrimination!  PishPosh!

I can remember seeing one of Oprah's very early shows on parents who'd raised their children as the opposite gender of their dna.  One couple really wanted girl but had boy...so they just pretended...no joke.  Later they finally had a girl, but by that time wanted a boy, so...yeah, that's what they did.  They raised their daughter as a son.  Puberty eventually exposed their folly and the boy decided he'd just continue on as a girl, the daughter decided she'd be true to her dna and embraced life as a woman.  They both giggled at being able to go shopping as sisters.

But, that was not the only strange part of the show.  Once the mike was passed around the audience, a lady (by all appearances) stood up started telling her story.  She was genuinely born a hermaphrodite.  She talked about the struggles and the hardships of such a life.  What caught Oprah's attention was that she said she'd found it hard to get a job because they usually tossed out her application because of her gender.  Oprah asked why they would do that, since if she marked "F" she certainly looked the part.  Her reply?  "I always mark M/F."  Sometimes, we make life so hard on ourselves, don't we?

Remember the old song by The Who?

Quote
My name is Bill and I'm a headcase
They practice making up on my face
Yeah, I feel lucky if I get trousers to wear
Spend ages taking hairpins from my hair

I'm a boy, I'm a boy
But my ma won't admit it
I'm a boy, I'm a boy
But if I say I am I get it


....


I wanna play cricket on the green
Ride my bike across the stream
Cut myself and see my blood
I wanna come home all covered in mud

I wonder if hermaphrodites DNA is "mixed" or if it's purely physical?

I forgot to give Oprah's reply, "That might be the problem!"

So, can a true hermaphrodite teach a class including adult men, or preach in the assembly?

I wonder if they (Harvard) had a faculty member who kept pushing this, so they finally just put it on the application to make them happy.

What if the multigendered militants have to put up or shut up?  What will your kids do if they've only one set of unambiguous genitalia to show?

Did a little research.  It can happen either way: the individual can be genetically one sex or the other, XX or XY, but, due to exposure to excessive estrogen or testosterone in the womb, may have attributes of the other sex, to a greater or lesser extent.  Others can have a triple chromosome, with XXY, leading to all sorts of problems.

Of course, a hermaphrodite, or intersex (apparently the preferred term) individual is different from a transexual, one who is both genetically and physically one sex, but takes steps to a greater or lesser extent to be the other.

So if someone has naturally high testosterone, like that biker fellow, what's his DNA say?

That he should have high testosterone, naturally.  More likely, his DNA has less to say about it than some French lab assistant who was annoyed that the Yanks keep beating them at their own game.

You know, he used to be a mountain bike instructor in West Virginia (and was a native of my father's hometown, Lancaster, PA).

I'm hoping he gets cleared, somehow.  Listening to him talk, he seems like the anti-Barry Bonds.
