Wanna go?

No.  I hate my body.

BTW CBC Radio just covered the story and said "Previously known as Ellen Page..."

There are people who are easily offended, people who find it hilarious to watch people be offended, and people who get mad about people getting offended. Not such a world of wonder after all.

It's interesting to me that the current generation of young people are fighting for the right not to have anything offend people, while the previous generation or 2 (or 3) were fighting for the right to offend people.  And the generations prior never wanted to be offensive.  That's pretty weird.

In Toronto.  There's a **** beach too.
There's a beach or two like that here too but I can't get close enough with the boat but speaking of LGB...CDE I'll never forget the boatload of guys who insisted on looking for bears.

I saw it on twitter first and the headline was "Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page announces he is transgender."

I guess I wasn't hip to the faux pas of naming the last name and it read like 'Elliot Page' (actor I need to google) is announcing himself as MTF transgender.

I guess I should've known better with the pronoun 'he'.

If Janine Garofalo had a younger sister i would imagine it would be something like the person formally known as Ellen Page.

Page is now a heterosexual man!  And Page's wife Emma Portner is now a heterosexual woman!  Two homosexuals cured, just like that! Wow, conversion therapy really works!

Just going to post this...  In case people think cancel culture is a thing

Quote
It was only a matter of time before the absurd remarks of Conservative MP Tamara Jansen went viral on social media, and it was entirely justified.

Addressing a Liberal bill aimed at criminalizing conversion therapy, the MP for the B.C. riding of Cloverdale—Langley City said, “I’m going to invoke the words of the Apostle Matthew: ‘Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees. You hypocrites! You’re like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside, but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.’ ”

After she was roundly criticized for implying that people who oppose conversion therapy — and members of the LGBTQ2 community, in particular — were perhaps “unclean,” she said she was in fact referring to hypocrites, rather than homosexuals. But with more than 780,000 words in the Bible, it’s a little strange she chose these so deliberately.

Jansen went on to discuss someone named Charlotte, whose parents, she explained, had found their daughter a counsellor because she no longer wanted “to continue with her lesbian activity” and “struggled with self-worth and depression.” It didn’t seem to occur to the MP that young gay people do indeed sometimes struggle with self-worth and depression, not because of their sexuality, but because of people who condemn that sexuality, and often quote scripture to make them feel unloved and unnatural.

I wonder if the Vatican would approve of this flag.

Well Catholic doctrine says there's nothing wrong with being gay, just the sex acts and gay marriage.  I don't see why they can't fly the flag.

Telling someone who they can and can’t love and be with is just as wrong.

They can...  but they’d be ignoring the bible passages prohibiting gay male sex.  Funnily enough, there aren’t the same prohibitions in the bible about lesbians.

Depends who you ask...   most Christians think it’s special, inherent even.

Does the Pride flag condone gay sex and gay marriage?  Maybe it does I dunno.
