P.S. Yes you read that right. I am single. The line forms over here to my right.
It's a multiple choice so you can choose female (sexual) for all the times you just wanted to fuck someone as well as female (romantic) for your preference in gender for when you actually decide to settle down.

Swedish law is a prime example, as the Swedes often pride themselves on having foregone barbaric and medieval policies regarding forced sterilization of "lesser" humans (up until the 1970's, that included colored people, jews, homosexuals, lesbians, abortionists, romani and women who enjoyed sex).

Today, Sweden only practices barbarism against transgendered people.

We're very open minded here.
Wait, they sterilize transgender people in Sweden? Or what do you mean by barbarism against transgender people?

Yes.

You're not allowed to procreate if you want to change your gender. It's a law that has existed since racial biology became popular in Europe during the early 20'th century, and has since been condemned for it's barbarism and is no longer practiced.

With one exception.

The fact that they have such a law in first place is messed up.

Wait I fucked up I didn't see the third option in the middle!

I would say I can be romantically attracted to both. (Jenny Lewis <3)

No shit.

I can't believe it frankly, maybe it is a law that exists but isn't enforced at all?

Most laws that survive despite their stupidity don't get enforced,which facilitates their survival. At least in Germany. It doesn't seem to be the case in Sweden...

What type of party do you think would be propping up such law.

Sweden is following Denmark's example and is undergoing a revival of nationalism. It's divided the country for a few years now.

I thought it was an archaic law that slipped through the cracks.

And fuck you, an overwhelming majority of Christians are not assholes.

Religion should never be made political. Doesn't matter of it's christianity or Sharia.

I've nothing against religion - just like I don't have anything against people "hating" [insert whatever], as long as it doesn't cause any actual harm.

That's all I have to say on the matter.

I'm gonna quote a famous movie about peaceful tibethan buddhists:
Quote:
Religion* ist Gift.
the bad guys win.

*personally i'd use "Organisierte Religion". There's a difference between faith and organisations.

34 people voted and only 2 weren't serious. That's a lot better than I feared.

I am a male, and am attracted to women. As simple as that.

Raptor Corollary of Menethil's Genitals: People who voted for the following:
* Females (Sexually)
* Females (Romantically)
* I identify as a male

...are most likely not going to be attracted to the majority of people here who voted for the following:
* I identify as a female

Fortunately the feeling is mutual.
The data is surprising, though.

Are you attracted to people who "identify as female", but were born with five s instead of six? I'm curious.

I can't say. I never met one. If I'm honest though, I think I'd probably not be attracted to former five-pronged raptor people, in most cases. (It took me a while to understand what you meant... )

@New question: No. Even if a clone weren't too weird, no. I do look like a guy.
(And try to act like one too.)

Whoops, I edited my post too late! Let me try again. I had a better question. You identify as a female and are attracted to females. Would you be attracted to a clone of yourself?

EDIT: You can blame the Fojar x Xil stuff for making me think about this subtopic. Gender identification of self, versus gender identification of others when equating sexual attraction.

EDIT EDIT: And you answered my new question because I didn't edit it out fast enough!
