So, what sex/gender/thingumajig are you anyway?

In the light of our recent discussions about transgender bathroom usage, I did a bit of research.  Some of it was serious.  Some of it, typified by this 4chan graphic representation of sexual preference/orientation/whatever, is less so.  Click the image for a larger view.  (A tip o' the hat to Claire Wolfe for the link.)

There's only one way to describe that chart, courtesy of Sir Walter Scott:

Oh, what a tangled web we weave
When first we practise to deceive!

(Self-deception being the first and most predominant, of course . . . )

That it is... Self-deception, that is...

I now have a headache from trying to imagine what kind of warped mind would consider a chart as nonsensical and ridiculous as that one...sane and sensible. Seriously. Who could see that and not recognize it as a perfect example of insanity made tangible? As the product of a broken mind, and/or many broken minds? And now the ACLU even has a revolt on *its* hands over this issue (yes, the schadenfreude is delicious, but still)...I don't even know what to say anymore. God help us.

They're missing one. The one for WTFBBQ.

@Anonymous at 11:56 AM: That source is the polar opposite of authoritative, and AFAIK is rejected with contempt by every Jew who takes his faith seriously - whether Orthodox or Reformed. Its perspectives are partisan and biased, and can't be considered an objective contribution to the debate.

Sorry about that, but that's the way it is.

As someone who lives on the internet, I'd highly recommend taking 4chan with a grain of salt. It is not the place you go for help or information. It's the place you go to troll and be trolled.

I'm inclined to believe the latter happened here.

Will this be on the test?
