Default Same Colorado Baker Refuses to Bake Cake Celebrating Gender Transition

Wow. Who will this guy bake a cake for? I wonder if he quizzes heterosexual couples to see if they have been having sex outside of marriage.

Why celebrate mental illness?

Many ripperologists are interested in the 19th century, but I didn't realise that some of them still lived there.

Whatever you are, black, white, brown, yellow, male, female, other, gay, straight, eat as much cake as you can before the health fascists ban it.

If you're biologically and anatomically a man and think you're a woman (or vice-versa) then your brain isn't hardwired right. We shouldn't contort reality in order for it to conform to our own mental delusions. Would you let an anorexic starve herself because she believes she's overweight?

It's only because we live in an increasingly permissive, postmodern society that stuff like this is becoming normalised.

All our brains are wired differently, but that doesn't make this particular kind of wiring a "mental illness". I've known a number of people who identify more with the opposite gender than their own, but I certainly wouldn't call them mentally ill.

Well, cakes are usually dry and dusty and there is no such thing as a "saucy cake". Quite a safe profession for him, I imagine. At the same time, I admire the fact that he DOES have a business plan and is sticking to it (unlike my employer....)

Of course you wouldn't, because that wouldn't be very politico correcto.

It's not about political correctness, but about biology.
