...because the state pays for them to have a sex change.

I saw the headline for this in the NY Post, and was so upset by the rudeness of the Post. I know they have a reputation for being crass and unimaginative, but this article was a new low.

One a side note: when I read the title of this thread, it made me think of the song from "An American Tale" (There are no cats in America, and the streets are made with cheeze!).

touchme, was it worse than the post-9/11 story about scavengers going through the ruins? The headline: ASH-HOLES

I think Goth may be experiencing a bit of confusion over the differences between being Gay and being a Transsexual.

"I think Goth may be experiencing a bit of confusion over the differences between being Gay and being a Transsexual."

No I know the difference.

If you will remember when Ahmadinejad spoke at Columbia he said that there were no gays in Iran. That makes sense because they either kill them or make them go through state funded gender reassignment.

Uh...the article didn't mention anything about making gays go through gender re-assignment. Do you have another source to to verify this?

The person in your linked article, never identified as being gay.

So your original thread title...and your response to the title in your first post simply doesn't follow.

Yep--being gay and wanting to be the opposite sex are two different things.

Now being treated like a woman and being gay ARE the same thing-at least it is when I do it.
