    I am hereby renouncing the term liberal. You may refer to me as a Democrat or progressive. This is a bridge too far.
    The far right may be a bunch of neo-fascists but the far left is a bunch of goddamned kooks.

    Take for example the gay wedding cake fiasco. It’s just ridiculous. What gay couple really wants to have their wedding cake made by someone who hates them? If some religious nut won’t bake you a cake because of who you are then go on social media and get the word out that Bakery X is run by a homophobic moron. They will eventually go out of business.

    The PC warriors on the left do more harm to the progressive agenda than anyone.

    The thing is you kept putting her and Ken in compromising positions.

    Under this logic, it would have no bearing on anything if sherb put down the gender of one of his daughter's as male. We good with this?

    Ummm yeah...that's what Steve is talking about.

    Doty, who gave birth to Searyl Atli, sports a mustache and stubble and wants the child’s gender to be undeclared on all government documents until the child has “the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are.”

    Seriously? There are only 2 choices on the birth certificate at birth. "X" is not one of the choices.

    Ithaca, NY is really beautiful. I wish the NE had military bases where I could transfer to.

    Non-binary simply means you are not categorizing someone one way or the other. It is like putting agnostic instead of Catholic on the form and letting them decide later. It has to exist because some bigots are trying to keep people out of bathrooms.

    I think Asia's preferred pronoun as "they." There's an absolutely hysterical scene when Taylor (Dillon) explains the preferred pronouns to the boss, David Axelrod (Damian Lewis). Taylor's a genius stock analyst so Axelrod will go along with anything.

    So what is your problem with this?

    This isn't quite accurate. Non-binary is really a catch-all phrase for a whole slew of gender identities. It's a categorization apart from cisgender and transgender.
