Major win: Australian court rules sex reassignment surgery is not necessary to have your gender legally recognized (the video in this post includes my take on surgery requirements as a form of reproductive oppression).

Another major win: the Federal Bureau of Prisons has ended its policy of “freezing” transgender-related medical care upon incarceration.

    God’s elaborate plan: Days 1-7 separate light from dark, water from dry land, make the plants, the animals, and humans, blah blah blah. Day 999 bagillion make Iphone, let Steve Jobs take credit for creation of Iphone, let Steve Jobs become millionaire off of said invention. Have Maggie Phelps purchase Iphone so she can Tweet that Steve Jobs is going to Hell. Yes, that makes a lot a sense. Truly Our God is an Awesome God!

    Wait. Steve Jobs created the iPhone (in a manner of speaking). Now she’s saying God did. I guess she thinks Steve Jobs is God! No wonder she wants to be at his funeral!

    Wait, so does God Hate Macs or something?

      This is a difficult and important question, one that theologians have studied and argued about for ages. However, I think in recent years there has been a great deal of consensus on the issue amongst most mainstream christian communities, God runs Linux.
