So if a person is born a male with male parts but views himself as a woman, it's politically incorrect to say that he was born a man?

| Political Talk|| Does everyone deserve equal rights? - Revelator on 2/5/14 at 5:38 am|
If our rights do not come from a creator and are natural rights, should all men's rights be equal? If one believes we come from a Creator and we have eternal souls, than obviously we are unique creations with a particular value. But if we are a random result of nature, we are indeed not created ...

How many times have we've heard this same tired argument to justify a wonan's right to an abortion? But in reality, the government does tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body every day through laws. A woman can't prostitute her body in most of America because it's restricted by the go...

Our Revolutionary war was largely fought because our forefathers didn't like the idea of a king's taxation without representation.
