    Isis has no no brow ridge or bossing on the forehead. The eye sockets look round. The chin is small and pointed.

    Men usually have a brow ridge and bossing of the forehead. The eye sockets are more square. The chin is large and a blunted wedge, with a cleft in the center.

    All this from anatomy texts.

    What if Isis has partial androgen insensitivity syndrome. That does raise some interesting questions. If Isis had complete androgen insensitivity syndrome, she would without question be a woman. How do we decide in the case of partial androgen insensitivity syndrome?

    Many people have a problem with street preachers. Why? Typically, street preachers get right in people’s faces, and scream and yell at them. The street preacher’s behavior is strongly tinged with anger. The message comes across as threatening. Behavior that is perceived as threatening, does constitute harassment.

    The Library of Congress may get its head handed back on a platter. Why? They had already tendered the job, then withdrew the offer. A number of court jurisdictions have already ruled that the Laws on Sexual Discrimination apply to cases like that of Shroer. Schroer did not lose top secret security clearance, after transitioning. So, the court case will be very interesting.

    Eaker asks, Do you actually believe this tripe? I would have kicked the fag’s ass too if he flirted with me.”

    Let’s examine what a classmate said about the situation:

    “They teased him because he was different,” said Marissa Moreno. Brandon McInerney was identified as the ringleader of the group of boys, who were harassing Larry King.

    I know that children will play ‘it’, and the kid who is declared ‘it’, ends up trying to push the title off onto someone else.

    I also know that teenaged boys can be very childish, perhaps even more than first graders (especially the ones, who are trying to be super macho).

    I am also very skeptical of the press, knowing that some members of the press prostitute themselves, failing to be totally objective in their reporting. This applies to some members of the press, from both the extreme left and the extreme religious right. The press is supposed to only present the facts, not slant the news to advance an agenda.

    *********
    “Latent gay”? What is that? Code words for *We haven’t gotten to him yet*? IOW, he’s straight.

    King was obnoxiously and belligerently provoking the others and McInerney in particular. He threatened to tell everyone they were having sex. I could see this pushing some teen kid over the edge.

    Your character assassination and slander of McInerney are reprehensible.
    *********

    No, it is not. There is a lot of scientific evidence, there is a biological basis to people be gay or lesbian. Also, Freud postulated that men, who were the most violent in their hatred of gays, were most likely to have strong latent homosexual feelings themselves.

    Brandon McInerney would seen to fit Freud’s model. Specifically, I will mention his academic performance. McInerney slipped from being of honor student level, to flunking, as if he was having a major personality conflict (as if he was experiencing the wakening of a trait, he could not handle).

    Furthermore, I did not absolve Larry King of blame, I said he was retaliating by flirting with Brandon. It is very common for, teenage boys to harass boys, who are effeminate, by calling them fag, queer, etc., and even physical assault. King wanted McInerney to leave him alone, so he flirted with McInerney to repel him. That was a tactic, which only fueled the fire, leading to murder. King was at fault in this respect.

    Both McInerney and King were engaging in sexual harassment. You should remember, that McInerney was the one, who committed murder. Murder is not an appropriate response for teasing.

    I believe the family would have a better chance of winning a suit, if they had sued on the basis of the school allowing Brandon McInerney to persist in his harassment of King. This is what started the whole problem. Larry King tried to retaliate by flirting with McInerney, and McInerney became so enraged, he resorted to murder.

    McInerney is one sick individual. There is a very good chance, based on some of the information, coming out about the murder, that McInerney was latent gay. Then, he became enraged, when he realized he was responding to King’s flirting.

    The Right to Keep and Bear Arms is important to all minorities. Minorities are always the target for tyrants and fanatics. All minorities have been targeted for violence at one time, or another. Jews, Native Americans, Japanese-Americans, Chinese-Americans, African-Americans, Arab-Americans, gay Americans, and etc., they have all been tarageted for violence.

    A fanny pack, such as the GALCO, works very well for concealment. Though, to gun people, it does scream “gun”, I doubt that many people on the street know that a gun is inside.

    Fanny pack holsters are made by all the major holster manufacturers, plus some manufacturers that are not associated with the firearms trade. Example Camelback has hydration packs, which also have a holster built into them.

    “One’s chromosomes determine anatomy. Your anatomy does not determine who you are.”

    It can even be more complicated. Example: Women, who have androgen insensitivity syndrome. They have breasts and a vagina, but they are actually XY. Why? There is a gene on the X chromosome called AR, the androgen receptor. In their case, the gene is an anomaly, and will not allow the transport of androgen across the cell membrane. They do identify as women.

    Yet, another example: Women with complet gonadal agenesis, who are XY, and have a vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes, but no gonads. They fail to develop breasts, and require hormone therapy to physically mature. They also develop a female gender identity.

    Then, let’s examine the case of girls with congenital adrenal hyperplasia. There is a genetic anomaly, that blocks the production of cortisol. The result is high levels of androgens in the fetal blood stream. Typically, these individuals exhibit various degrees of physical masculinization (fusing of the labia, enlargement of the clitoris, etc.) Behaviorally, they are referred to as tomboys, and some research has indicated about 40% of them are lesbian. In extreme cases, the labia will completely fuse, and the clitoris will become a phallus. The child will most probably identify as a boy, even though they are XX.

    The evidence is some of the boys, including Brandon McTierney, were constantly heckling Larry King, because of his flamboyant effeminancy. King retaliated by flirting with them, which was, in itself, a form of sexual harassment. So, we had both sides engaging in sexual harassment of the other. In this case, it resulted in murder.

    Now, let me tell you a story, originally told by a co-worker (now deceased from cancer). He worked at a local electronics company. There was a man that worked there, who was what would be rabidly homophobic (constantly cursing gays). Other workers considered him to be rather obnoxious in his behavior.

    The homophobic man was also smitten with one woman. Someone (not identified) put a note on his desk, telling him the woman wanted him to call her. The catch was the number given was for the gay and lesbian hot line. The man was almost incandescent in his anger about the prank.

    Though it is possible to see humor in the prank, such pranks are not advisable for two reasons:

    1. That kind of prank is sexual harassment (it could lead to loss of employment).

    2. The prank could result in someone being killed.

    When you consider rape, it is a crime of violence. The usual motive is to humiliate and intimidate the victim. That also applies to the incidents in the locker room.

    Hitting someone with a baseball bat is ‘assault with a dangerous or deadly weapon’ and could possibly be considered ‘attempted murder’. Both of those offenses are felonies.

    Another counter argument to Mr. Jackson would be to compare his arguments to the case of two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner. Someone will do it.

    “I think the legal reasoning is flawed, the courts can strike down an initiative if it violates the Constitution, or basically make it null and void. Once that was done Prop 22 had no binding affect on Schwarzenegger since Prop 22 is no longer law. Schwarzenegger could have refused to allow same sex marriage and the courts would be incapable of forcing his compliance. But after the court ruling there is nothing in law preventing same sex marriage. The courts could then have forced county clerks to accept marriage applications from anyone not forbidden to be married.”

    I believe you are right about that. The arguments Mr. Jackson made could turn around and bite him in the posterior.

    Example: It would be very easy for someone to substitute the word Jewish for ‘same-sex’ in Mr. Jackson’s screed. Then, it will sounds as if Mr. Jackson is arguing that Jewish marriage is illegal, and since the ban was passed by majority vote, the court has no power to overturn the anti-semitism.

    Example: Also, it would be very easy for someone to substitute the word Blacks for for ‘same-sex’ in Mr. Jackson’s screed. Then Mr. Jackson would seem to be advocating racism.

    Sure, ‘same-sex’ marriage is a controversial subject. However, making the faulty arguments, which Mr. Jackson uses, does not favor any case against ‘same-sex’ marriage.
