what is being overlooked or maybe just forgotten, is that human birth sexual genitalia
comes in three types, male, femal and hermaphrodite, which is both male and female.
Given that that is a biological fact, what is to say that the ‘insides’, emotions and mental
in the brain, aren’t different..ie different than the ‘outside’ appears.
It is extreme ignorance to say that God said even marriage should be what people
say he said it should be when he also apparently ‘made’ people in his image and that
image is not exactly what science has discovered inside humans.
Now, of course, I was told that the above was nothing more than gibberish. I also understand that science is often thought of as gibberish, mostly because a GED doesn’t imbue an educated or scientific knowledge into those individuals. I also know that few individuals have actually seen or known an individual that was what some describe as a true hermaphrodite, ie a person with female breasts and a male penis. Mostly, because at birth, the doctor’s and parents ‘decide’ on surgery. Whether the surgery ultimately ‘fits’ the ‘personality’ has been as hotly debated.
I did get to meet a ‘man’ described by a friend as a hermaphrodite, several. His parents had decided to not have any surgery. I heard several reasons but since they were second, third and fourth hand, I’m leaving those out. I wasn’t rude enough to ask ‘him’ either. He obviously had female breasts and he as obviously dressed as a man and had some male features. His personality wasn’t as precise when it came to a definition as male or female. More like his personality was a combination, depending on the circumstances. I watched him fit right in with the quilting ladies and later the men talking about a tractor.
His parents had the doctor’s name him as a male was due to the time when he was born, in the 1930’s. One possibility that occurred to me was that males had an easier time back than as well as inheritance etc. and less discrimination.
I’ve thought about it over the years, and that eventually led me to the conclusion, that if humans (1 in 1500 births to 1 in 2000 births) are born with more or less of the two main chromosomes X and Y and the distinct hermaphrodite ones, that since there are three distinct birth sexual genitalia, male, female and hermaphrodite, than the inner self also had, more or less, a distinct difference not regulated by environment or rules of any religion. Unless you want to count that humans were made in God’s image, which means there are definitely three images. A conundrum for those with strict Bible interpretations. Some do want to cover the third aspect of human physiology with the ‘sin’ connotation but that leaves out the overall one…made in the image. (I do love how they go into a circular argument) Usually, they give up and tell me that what I’m saying is…gibberish. haha
Historical references to note: Greek and Roman mythology regarding Hermaphroditus being the son of Aphrodite and Hermes which has the added footnote of when Hermaphroditus had a ‘union’ (read sex) with the water nymph Salmacis, he became intersex (modern word for hermaphrodite).
All of the above led me to the conclusion that humans are complex creatures. To deny any license based on sexual preference between consenting adults, couldn’t be used to deny a license of any kind in the US. If it is allowed, than all US state licenses for any reason should be based on sexual preference or none.
