Ah Life or rather biology is not that simple. There are women born who have given birth, but had XY chromosomes. called... XY gonadal dysgenesis. Not common, but not that rare either. There are of course men (born men) with XX chromosomes too. So the whole XX-XY thingy is not at all an absolute. Biology is like that.

Another example: If you have 2 or 3 female guppies in an aquarium without males. One of the females will change over a period of several weeks into a male and procreate with the females, resulting in babies. I saw this with my own eyes back ages ago. Other species do this too.


BTW How in the **** did a cruising thread degenerate into bathroom wars. That's pretty close to politics.

As sailorchic34 said!

I want to add I personally do not care about others sexuality, sexual preferences, colour of skin, religion or political affiliation. Other people can do whatever they feel is right for them - I really don't care, but I'm always interested in their stories!

All I care is if you are a nice person or an as***le!

Re: Now I understand how poor i am.

This has nothing to do with DNA...its how the persons brain is constructed... Years ago there was a study that mapped the differences in Gay people and Straight peoples brains...they are different.. dont ask me to explain the differences, as I cannot but I do recall the study at the time.

Take time to talk to a transgender person...or a gay person... ask then what made them change... every single time they will tell you... that from childhood, they knew that they were different.

Allowing a woman who self identifies as a man into a ladies bathroom is foolishness. Your putting the fox into the hen house.. not the other way around as the NC Law would have you believe.

And how else do you think could all male crews of Magelhanes, Cook and Eisenhower sail on?

They say they traded the resulting babies for pearls and gold. I think this part is, however, just another sailors story.

;-)

It is nice when the world is diverse. It is easier to live in and way more entertaining than where skins and minds are homogenous.

I'm not a native English speaker and was told that "It's none of my business" instead of "I don't care" would have better expressed what I tried to say.

Check Lauderdale Isles as well.. the homes are a bit older, and further up the New River, but is very hurricane safe, protected, semi fresh water as it drains from the Everglades.

I was renting dock space from a home in that area...it's about 45 minutes down the sometimes crowded New River to Port Everglades and the ocean, but there are no fixed bridges impeding your way.

While I know what you're talking about. I think we are rich ones, as we go sailing more then most. Lord knows the Rose is a very modest sailboat, but she's used and sailed far more then the dock queens. That's being rich.

I've even had guys with big boats come up to me and say they wish they had my life.

A person can be gay. That's a choice and that's fine. People aren't born gay, an event or series of events turned them gay. And of course it's not uncommon for people to "jump the fence" and go from straight to gay or vice versa.

A person with a penis is a man. A person with a vagina is a woman. That's biology. You don't have a choice whether you are male or female. If you have a penis and think you are a woman, you are either very stupid or you are mentally ill and need treatment.

As far as bathroom laws, it's true, a woman is unlikely to be molested by a man who thinks he is a woman but the laws allow any man to claim he is transsexual for the purpose of going into the woman's restroom. He typically doesn't have to even make an effort to pass as a woman.

That's interesting. How many sailors have you asked? All my sailing friends claim they were born this way.

A funny fact: I never ever understood what Rainbow Warrior was all about till I heard this song.



Love,
