Re: “UPDATE: Transgender service in the military — what's happening now?

"It's only male and female, girls and boys, XX and XY. " - John Ritchie

There is also XXY, XYY, XXYY, etc. XXY occurs in about 1 out of every 1000 to 2000 births. About the same for XYY. XXYY is more rare at around 1 in every 40,000 to 80,000 births.

You really should watch Through the Wormhole Season 7 Episode 3 where Morgan Freeman explores if there are more than two genders. You will find it eye opening.

Re: “Divisions in El Paso County Democratic Party revealed in defections and drama

You'd never hear this level of honesty about or from the local Republican (or any other) party. I can be a party member and still be open minded when when looking at the candidates presented.

Sorry that Liz feels a volunteer is a job that owes her something. Don't pick up the box to avoid injury.

Colorado Springs is no place for snowflake libtards. Please leave our nice conservative (red) city for the likes of Boulder. Signed, every red-blooded, patriotic Republican in this town!

Re: “Making lasting memories after life

What a great way to honor someone's memory. My grandmother told us that at her funeral she wanted us to sing happy uplifting songs. In a way it reminded us of how positive she was all her life. Thank you for sharing your experiences, he seemed like a good guy.

Re: “UPDATE: Female CSPD police officers win federal court decision about physical testing

Mary1, lest's start with Cathy Buckley. Would you describe her as slim? Not in a million years. Arndt? Nope. Her sister Jen at EPSO is rather large as well.

I'm sure they don't know the name on my post. Just like your momma didn't name you "Mary1", the name on my post is a screen name as well. These women are out of shape, plain and simple. That is why they can't pass the test.

And by the way, Mary1, I've been in law enforcement for decades in El Paso County. I know the job quite well.

Re: “Penrose Hospital workers banned from parking in the Old North End

I'm sorry, but who wrote this? And why talk to a husband of a contract employee? Me, being a "lower paid employee", have no issues riding the shuttle or felt unsafe in the past 2 years of working here.. It's actually nice down time where I can chat with other employees about all the great things with Lincoln school we enjoy, check social media or just relax since I don't have to do the driving. Not to mention the shuttle drivers are awesome, friendly and do a great job. It's a small price to pay, parking offsite, to allow much needed space for patients who are here to receive care- which is why we all work here right? And we shouldn't park in neighborhoods- I guarantee you'd be upset if a ton of cars where parking in on your street or in front of your house constantly. It's annoying right? Let's put ourselves in the shoes of the patients and our neighbors and stop being selfish. Most work here because we believe in Penrose-St. Francis and want to be the best we can be. Not to mention I've ridden the shuttle many time with executives or as you'd call them "higher paid employees". Sounds like you went solely off the gripe of one husband, not truly understanding the reason, the need or employees thoughts. I typically like all the Indy articles and views, but you blew it with this one. You're no better than the rest of the media using words to grab attention and building a story off half truths.

Re: “Another reader's take on Incline traffic

Hmmm maybe you should have been looking up instead of watching your feet hit every plank as you run. Its funny for years all we heard was open the Incline to the public. Now it is and everybody is gripping about the public using it. Well folks Public allows all to use it. Im willing to bet theres as many hikers and dog walkers that think your running is just as dangerous as you think they are. Get over it if you want a trail to go down roll up your sleaves open your wallet and get to work. It was not opened for just you to use.

Re: “Can Air Force Academy cadets become parents while enrolled? Apparently so.

Am I the only one who noticed the remark "being added to our family of 5"? Does she have other children, or are they including pets? This makes it sound like they've been a "family" for some time.

Re: “Divisions in El Paso County Democratic Party revealed in defections and drama

It'll be interesting to see if the people who have the so-called 'commitment' will get over their hesitation and join back in. While the party locally has not always been the most welcoming to the blue collar crowd, we waited patiently and stayed involved. The recent uptick in involvement despite the exiting of a few people is heartening in these times. These are growing pains as the local party begins to face the reality that focusing on the few at the neglect of the many isn't representational democracy. I say kudos for Kathleen and Christie for building a strong foundation to work from, but now it's time to soldier on!

Re: “Navigating the intersection of queerness and Christianity

My life journey took me through a period of devoted Christianity, but later after deep questioning, I began researching. Bravo the internet! I learned about near-death experiencers, and moved into research into psychiatrists and psychologists who had written about people who reached soul level through hypnosis . The point I want to eventually make is this: The more mature a soul is, the LESS IT IS MALE OR FEMALE - IT IS BOTH!! As are angels. Regardless if you believe in reincarnation or not, it is true, and YOUR SOUL moves from body to body to body during it's maturing process changing from male to female and back again. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHICH SEX YOU ARE!!! What matters is the maturing love in your soul. Humanity is going through an evolution right now - even though that's hard to see - and that's why so so so many people are gender confused. They are mature, loving souls! How's THAT for new information about gay folks!!!

Re: “The transgender military debate: policy versus culture

I read where one person here states that the high suicide rate for transsexuals is overly inflated and its because they are struggling to express themselves, but these high numbers are coming from post operative research where the people no longer have to struggle to "be themselves" Then the person goes onto say they were in the military, had PTSD went to the best clinic and "it still did not help" This is the kind of example that proves out beyond a doubt that the military is not ready for transsexuals, nor TS are ready for the military. There are just too many questions, and the military since the military is not serving those personnel in uniform presently, it is just not able to expand its mission at this time. As for a need for a culture shift. When it boils down to i, all armies are in place to do one thing. Kill other people. They are not social clubs they are not secret societies with fun handshakes, they are in place to defend our families and societies. We need our armies functional and without discourse in the ranks. If anything, the writer of this article and many of the other bloggers prove that they ours is not ready yet to integrate sexual and social deviance into their ranks.

Re: “The transgender military debate: policy versus culture

Suicide rates, lethality, readiness, impact on morale...all fodder that sounds good to the general public, but the fact that thousands have served and may be currently serving debunks all of these sound bites.
She hits the nail on the head. It's not trans service members that are the issue, we've proven that. It's that it requires a cultural shift that makes others squirm. And why? Probably issues with their own sexuality, because the majority of people who have little issue with it are very confident and comfortable in their own skin.
Trans people are not the distraction to military readiness or the mission. This debate is.
Let them serve with honesty and integrity and let's get on with winning a few wars that have drug on way too long.

I am a very happy person today because i am now a full and bona-fide member of the great ILLUMINATI. I want to quickly Say a big thanks to Brother James Watt the agent of the brotherhood who introduced me to becoming a member of the great Brotherhood brothers and sisters here is my story.

They collected my money and i was never initiated into the brotherhood. Until i was introduced to Brother James Watt and he told me the truth that those in USA Dont pay any money from their pocket to become a member of the Illuminati, and i am an American. so i was very Interested i called the temple messenger number i was given it was +1(617)663-8926 when i called, the temple messenger Told me what i need to do, i did it and i was initiated i did not pay a dine from my money to become a member. But i was told that those living outside USA will have to pay some kind of money for the purchase of their initiation materials. But those living within the square of USA don't pay a dine. I followed all instructions and after my initiation, I was given all the benefit of becoming a member. As i talk to you am very okay and my future have been settled. I am well protected and i am wealthy and famous. Please if you wish to become a member of the great Illuminati contact Agent Brother James Watt on the Devil Church, ( or those in the USA can call or text directly the Temple messenger on +1(617)663-8926.
