Papal Bull

RRRRRR! I don't know what to make of it. I mean the Pope's Christmas speech or what have you. He went on about "human ecology" and how new age "gender theories" (involving homosexuality and transgender identity) will basically wipe out the human species because there won't be enough hets having sex and reproducing. Ummm I'm pretty sure we're not an endagered species, Rev. And for a religion that is so against transgender folk it's a bit odd that the clergy are all men who abjure the company of women and go around in long, pretty robes. I would be significantly more worried about deforestation if I were him.

Gotta go with a Sharon Olds poem for this one: "The Pope's Penis"

Funny that a man wearing a DRESS would be so down on homosexuality and transgender. There are billions and billions of people on the planet. The human race will never become extinct because a relatively small portion of the population has a non-het sexual preference.

(Egad, it's been so long since I blogged I forgot my password. D'oh)

Hehe. Yeah, leave it to a man in a DRESS to bash the transgendered! Soemthing wrong there! The link for the pope's penis poem isn't working. I so wanted to know more about his penis! *giggles*
