The Roman Catholic Diocese of Carora (Latin: Caroren(sis)) is a diocese located in the city of Carora in the Ecclesiastical province of Barquisimeto in Venezuela. It was established from the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Barquisimeto on July 25, 1992.

In an online news story from the Catholic News Agency (CNA), posted on Thursday, April 19, 2012, it was stated,:

"Retired Bishop Eduardo Herrera Riera of Carora, Venezuela, who is suffering from terminal cancer, called on Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to repent of his “injustices” against the country.

“As a Head of State, you have the most gravest of obligations, first and foremost, to procure the peace and security of Venezuelans,” the bishop said in an open letter April 9. “Unfortunately, you have been very weak and negligent in confronting this most serious of problems.”

The controversial president has battled illness himself in recent years, traveling last month to Cuba in order to have a potentially cancerous tumor removed.

Bishop Herrera listed several ethical concerns as well as human rights complaints against the Venezuelan leader and urged him to repair damage caused if he wants to share in “eternal happiness in the Kingdom of our Lord and God.”..."[1]

Yep. The one that pissed me off the most was the trans-womam(was genetically male) who sued her doctor for not acknowledging her as a female on medical forms. The kicker? SHE WON.

The doctor noted her as male because genetically speaking, SHE WAS MALE and thus needed to worry about genetic issues men are prone to such as prostate cancer, heart disease, and since she wanted to be female, even things like male pattern baldness. But she won, and now she is being treated medically as though she was male, and the doctor she sued is at best paying off a settlement and at worst no longer practicing due to having his license taken.

I hope she enjoys the prostate cancer her doctor misses because they aren't allowed to screen her for it.

In Massachusetts we had a similar thing with a prisoner. The prisoner wanted a sex change operation and threatened to kill himself if he didn't. The judge ruled that he should be given a sex change for his life's sake. The real kicker is that the lawyer for the trial and the operation are going to be paid by the taxpayer... Isn't that nice...

Yes! They want a gender neutral pronoun? Well there IT is
#25 to #16 - John Cena (02/10/2014) [-]
Nope. The proper gender-neutral pronoun in the English language for a person of indeterminate gender is "one". as in, "One may be offended by your insensitivity toward one's gender."

"It" is reserved for non-human objects or lesser animals of indeterminate gender.
User avatar #314 to #25 - commontroll (02/11/2014) [-]
"It" refers to a specific person or object. "One" does not.

Should one be glad we have no gender-neutral pronouns? I think it could have had some sour usage before today's current age.

no seriously, because that whole story is a load of ********* . that scenario as you described it would never happen, i hate when people make **** up like this and then make the law look like some backward archaic ******** . that is not how the law works, this story is made up, and anyone with half a brain could figure that out.

to all of you that aren't familiar with the law and legal standards, let me explain something: rarely, if ever, do people get huge windfalls for doing nothing or for not having real and significant damage done to them. the law is designed to be reasonable and 99.9% of the time if you hear of something that sounds ridiculous then it is either completely made up or the person telling it is leaving out some significant facts that dramatically change the situation.

Well there is this one , women?, who got mad because her coworkers would forget to call her they (even though that's awkward as **** to remember and say in a conversation) so she quit her? job. Now she is suing for lost wages and half a mil in "emotional damages". Also no one refers to you in pronouns when talking to you directly, so either ,she?, is listening in on others conversations or is making it up. Also she didn't even work their for long. She want'd special treatment and apparently the company failed to comply.
#346 to #327 - John Cena (02/11/2014) [-]
read the article carefully. the person has brought a suit for half a million dollars, but that in no way, shape, or form means that they will receive anywhere near that much. the way our legal system works is that nearly any claim, almost no matter how implausible, can be brought in a suit. it certainly doesn't mean they will win. this person will probably not survive a summary judgement motion. what they are doing is fishing for a settlement, hoping the owners will pay them slightly less then what the litigation costs would be.

but this illustrates my point perfectly. people read these stories thinking it means that the law entertains ridiculous claims like this when it really doesn't. it just gives the plaintiff what every citizen is entitled to: their day in court.

Once when I worked at a school I called a young girl "negro". I guess I asked her something like "you being a negro, do you get badly treated when whatever?" I live in Sweden so the word isn't loaded with Jim Crow baggage. The girl just answered my question, but an arab girl that overheard me FLIPPED HER **** . Girl one just told her "Relax.

But on the topic of transgenders, gays, bis, or crossdressers (I'm none of those), I will ******* rage like a toddler on steroids because nobody should be judged for what makes them comfortable. MOST OF US ON FJ NEVER LEAVE OUR ROOMS FOR ****** SAKES. THAT'S NOT NORMAL OR HEALTHY.

False, sex is determined by the SRY gene located on the Y chromosome. If it removed or has a defect you will be born and grow up a biologically normal female, if it is removed and put on the one of the two X chromosomes in a typical female genome then you will be born and grow up a biologically normal male. In both instances above you would experience some fertility issues but beyond that be fertile.

I completely agree =I I'm trans myself, but I hate a lot of trans people.

Personally, I don't ******* care. I'm just doing what makes me happy. Some people don't agree that I will ever be male, regardless of what I do to my body. That's fine, to each their own. Whatever. But the people who bitch and whine because they don't get 100% acceptance kill me. They make us look bad.

I want to be accepted, yes, but I know everyone's different. And I accept that, along with the fact that not everyone thinks like me.

My motto: You can't please everyone. So start with yourself and try not to hurt anyone along the way.

Aye, I had a trans friend who is Male to Female. We were cool like, I asked her what she would like to be called and by what he/she etc. I was reading her poetry once and commented on Facebook publicly that she was a wonderful wordsman. Hilarity ensues when she took the man out of wordsman to be me insulting her or oppressing her... or something. No longer friends because I refused to apologise.

Pic relevant.
User avatar #725 to #717 - redstonealchemist (02/11/2014) [-]
you could have told her that you use the suffix 'man' in terms of human rather than in a gendered term such as a woman can be a postman and a woman can be a policeman, even if not grammatically correct
#726 to #725 - sapphos (02/11/2014) [-]
I did try to explain my actions, and at the time I used "fireman" but it was the apologising that got to me. There was no malice or hatred in my compliment therefore I was not guilty. However if this situation ever arises again, which it probably will seeing as I'm a nurse, I shall probably use your wording.
User avatar #730 to #726 - redstonealchemist (02/11/2014) [-]
firstly, thanks for the consideration and secondly she is probably butthurt.
i believe that what makes words offensive is that we take offense. it's really difficult to directly offend me because i taught myself about how other people think i have autism and it took much longer to develop communication skills and as a result i have reached a position where i am easily capable of seeing things from the perspective of others.
if someoen calls me dude, man, bro or whatever else may lie in the cacophony of masculine pronouns, i won't be hurt or take offense, if someone calls me a fag or retard, i again won't be hurt because i understand that people in general come from a spectrum of backgrounds and therefore have grown differing degrees of sensitivity to the subject.
if anything, i would describe you as a realist.
#740 to #730 - sapphos (02/11/2014) [-]
I understand completely. I work with a lot of people and I'm comfortable in doing so; no matter social background, gender or chosen sex, mental health issues, sexuality I'm a lesbian so I'm not exactly going to discriminate etc. I find that bringing things out into the open avoids more conflict than it does trying to skirt around subjects. I have to ensure that whilst I'm in contact with patients they don't have any safeguarding issues regarding immediate family or friends, and it's quite common for people to comment, like yourself, that they do receive unfriendly comments from time to time but they count it as just inappropriate sensitivity or a lack of knowledge. It's unfortunate but there you go.
#254 - saetonchapelle (02/11/2014) [-]
No saying they are, due to me only meeting one, but the one individual I did meet made me quite upset. Not because of their life decision, but how they responded. She was my supervisor, but she was very verbally and physically abusive away from the cameras. When we would approach the managers, she would state we were against her due to her being a trans. They never believed us until she physically assaulted another girl. It was frustrating that she was able to use this to her advantage. Before she was fired, she had me watch the sexual harassment movie 8 ****** times.
I have nothing against trans, period. I assume there is an asshole in every group of people. Just sucks I had to meet the one.

Was on a dating website once and one girl I had messaged had messaged me back. we got to talking for a while and I was finding myself a bit disinterested with the way she talked, then I got hit with her telling me shes a transsexual. so im like "what? you got a dick?" she said yes. I then went on to tell him off saying that if you got a dick, youre male, no 2 ways about it. the fact you have a dick is precisely what defines you as male. he got all upset and was defending what gender he felt like on the inside. now I have no problem with them as themselves, im just not attracted to them (and my profile specifically stated I was straight), so ill leave them to the guys who like dicks.    
   
Also had a discussion with a very large woman about "being a bitch, and proud of it" isn't a good thing.    
needless to say I don't do online dating anymore

Trans people do identify with the opposite gender based on their behaviour (which would be considered inappropriate or abnormal for the gender they were born with), so I understand her (him-whatever) being upset that you called them male.
However, if you're going to go on an online dating website and identify as female on it, you're setting yourself up to be rejected. You can act as girly as you like, but people need to know you have a penis.

That bitch lady sounds like a cunt.
#623 to #591 - blueboysixnine ONLINE (02/11/2014) [-]
Exactly. you should put yourself down as male and smack bang in the beginning of the description put "im trans". so the people who are into that can find you and you can have your love. you don't set yourself as female and then half an hour into conversation say "btw I gt a dik lol"

Yeah, she was crazy. she had the full ******* novel as her description - im not even kidding, it was 4 paragraphs of "about her" and about the same for what shes looking for in a man. I was asking her why people would be looking for love and think "you know what? I want to marry a self proclaimed 'bitch' who is proud of such a disposition" to which was met with a very sound argument of "ur just a fag", "that's how I am deal with it, moron" and other such well thought out and comprehensive statements

The fact that she was so incredibly unattractive gave her no real redeeming factors

I think just about everyone has at least one opinion in the back of their head that, alone, would make them out to be a total asshole.

Amen to this.

I used to be friends with a trans gender girl-guy (or would-be: he/she still hasn't had the actual procedure done) who's in my class. I was probably the only one who showed any sort of acknowledgement to her preference of being addressed by male pronouns while everyone else kept saying "Which bathroom does she use again?" (Which I can't really disagree with, but it's still mean) But I guess that, nor the money I gave her over the few weeks we were actually friends, means absolutely nothing.

Anyway, for the first couple weeks I knew her I thought she was OK, but then every day she was bitching about something someone said about her being transgender or just about trans people in general and she would go on a long rant just spewing insults about these people, some of whom were good friends of mine.

What's worse, when she wasn't bitching about being discriminated against, she was discriminating against others. She claimed to be accepting and all that **** , but all I ever heard out of her were stereotypes against pretty much everyone from blacks to homosexuals and everything in between. She even verbally attacked a gay guy in class, who is a friend of mine, and the poor guy wound up running out of the building and crying in his car.

It was that moment where I decided she crossed the line and, if she wouldn't treat others the way she expects everyone to treat her, then she can go **** herself. I severed all ties of friendship with her and now refuse to address her by male pronouns (which really gets under her skin and that makes me happy).

I know she's only one person out of probably thousands who are undergoing this procedure, but even the supposed transgenders I see on online blogs and Facebook are always the most easily offended assholes I've ever seen.

I also want to take a quick minute to apologize to any trans people out there who act like mature human beings. I'm not trying to generalize, this is just my experience.

I don't get it either. The thing that bothers me most about her verbal attack on my friend is the fact that she has a girl friend! She claims that because she's going to become a guy, that means she's straight, but I don't see any logic in her reasoning or her abuse.
User avatar #400 to #380 - whiterabit (02/11/2014) [-]
I...what. I'll agree that if he identifies as guy, that makes it a straight relationship, but if his girlfriend is attracted to his female body, that makes her at least bisexual. So this guy will persecute some other guy for being gay but not his own girlfriend for being bi? And that on top of him being trans? What, does that put him in some superior class of sexual deviancy? The hypocrisy is absurd o.o

Based on the fact that most of the comments show a fiercely negative view of transgendered people, I'd say they have reason to be defensive about themselves. If someone would prefer to act/be seen a certain way, it really doesnt affect any of you.
