http://www.theblaze.com/stories/texas-could-soon-abolish-transgender-marriages/

The legislation by Williams, of Houston, and Rep. Lois Kolkhorst, of Brenham, would prohibit county and district clerks from using a court order recognizing a sex change as documentation to get married, effectively requiring the state to recognize a 1999 state appeals court decision that said in cases of marriage, gender is assigned at birth and sticks with a person throughout their life even if they have a sex change.

Most states allow transgendered people to get married using a court order that also allows them to change their driver’s license, experts said. Some advocates for the transgendered say the Texas proposal would not only prevent future transgendered marriages but also open up the possibility that any current marriage could be nullified.


The only comment I have at this time is that they're confusing "transgendered" with "transexual"

Any thoughts/opinions other than "loltexas" or "lolrepublicans"? Is this a can of worms that should not have been opened?

Because it makes the licensing clerks' jobs easier. Seriously, that's one of the reasons they tried to claim with a straight face, according to the article.

Stupid law. Texan politics are almost always stupid and unfair.

Edit: Ok not really, but when it comes to things like this, yes they are.

Totally the opposite direction than what we should be going in. All the news I hear from Texas has been negative.... to think we fought a war with Mexico over it..... I don't know much about history, but I'm assuming we lost, seeing as we ended up with Texas.

The former. Some I've kind of agreed it's a regional thing on, but a lot of the stuff that's just plain out-there in Texas(Even by the admission of other Texan members) he's defended vehemently.

Anyway, this is stupid. Texan politicians are stupid.

As with most things that pop up about Texas legislation on this site, I doubt anything will actually happen, but it's still definitely rage worthy. I love how he tries to justify it by saying it's confusing the clerks. That's pathetic.

Also, if you really want to rage, read the comments.

Devil's advocate would bring up a good point. Transexuals and gay marriage are between consenting adults (people who are of an actual legal age to consent). The only argument I could see against it is if a bunch of transexuals were tricking straight people to marry them, because that wouldn't be consenting, but that's just simply not happening.

Eh. I think anyone should be able to marry anyone. However, there should be a full disclosure agreement before the ceremony to insure that both parties understand that they may be engaging in marriage, or more importantly, sex with a person that may have been the same gender as them at one time.

You, good sir, have not gone over to your friends house after a hard night of drinking to find 2 dudes passed out in the same room both holding their own flaccid cocks in hand, passed out, with porn on the tv.

Hi guys, what's up?


But really, it kinda makes sense, not the nullifying of marriages thing, but making people stick to their original gender at birth. I mean, you were born into the world one way, and no matter how hard you want to change it, your still gona be whatever you were before your sex change, it's kinda something that I would like to know if I decided to marry someone who's had a sex change and hasn't told me about it.

You really think the gays are like Body Snatchers and want to marry a homophobic like yourself to just get at you in some way? And how does it honestly hurt anyone if I were to decide I wanted to stop being a man, and wanted legally be seen as a woman? Men and women don't get any different rights anymore. It's not like we're gonna have women jump over to vote or anything. It just seems like you people want to illegalize everything that makes you uncomfortable.

You got that part right. Transexual men often consider themselves to be women, even before the sex change.

The same could be said for the leftists too, just it's applied to different things and justified by other means.

If you were born a man, then your genetics will always be a man, so based on your genetics, it only makes logical sense to label you as such. Just cause a girl got a thingymadoodle attached to her place doesn't make her a man, and just cause a guy got his manliness turned inside out and had silicone inserted into his chest doesn't make him a woman.

I know you want to cater to feeling and shit, but I'm just saying that logically, people would like to know if you were born a male or a female...I know in Australia that one guy was labeled neither a guy nor a woman, and he sued the state so the voting ballets would include a box for whatever the hell he/she/it was.

But I digress...

You didn't answer my question and just got defensive. Besides making people uncomfortable, how is this harmful? How is a more tolerant country so harmful?
