You realize that the Sunnis & Shi'a had been fighting for centuries before the US ever got involved.

It was BOUND to happen when Saddam was removed.

They have a POWER struggle going on which has absolutely nothing to do with the US in Iraq. Add to that the Syrians, and Iranians with their fingers in the pie and you've got one big middle eastern mess.

I don't blame the USA for that because Saddam had to go.
That justification would be hilarious if it weren't so devastating. It's illegal to invade a sovereign nation to unseat its leader, whether we like them or not. You sound like those moronic racists who say things like "he just needed killin'". Jesus. I won't say anything further on this, since it's off topic. Feel free to get the last word in; I won't be responding further.

Which one was born with a penis?
The one sitting in the middle of the front row...Roger Moore.

The picture that you posted is difficult to see faces...too many shadows, the picture's too small...

But, like I said - some women are born with masculine features. Looking at the (too small and too unclear) photo that you posted, I find the woman in the upper right and the blond woman 2nd from left to have facial features that I would consider masculine. Others are not clearly displayed here.

Thanks in advance.
Just a note: Sexual orientation is different from gender identity. Most homosexuals are comfortable with their gender.

Homosexuals don't; transsexuals do. Then there are the transgendered, who may or may not opt for some, all or none of the surgeries and/or hormone treatments. Here are a few links for you:
Transgender
APA
Transexualism
Sex reassignment surgery

Roger Moore, but am not sure if he knows how to use it.

Personally I find it difficult to accept that anyone would take a perfectly healthy body of either sex and purposely create a situation where so much can go wrong, you will never really be what you think you should be, and physical issues will have to be dealt with FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE. Sexual confustion/disorder or not, this doesn't seem healthy at all.

I've read horror stories about people undergoing "simple" plastic surgery procedures that left them physically and emotionally scared for life and this is much more complex than that.
Apparently you don't know that before any doctor would do the surgeries involved in sex reassignment, the individual must undergo a lot of psychological counseling. They don't just one day 'decide' "hey, I wanna be the other sex" and start the surgeries the next day! In most cases, the patient must live as what they consider their "true gender" for six months or a year before the surgeon will pick up that scalpel.

And when it's all done, she'll be a woman with a mustache and a horribly disfigured vagina.
Yeah, mutilation of genitals is o.k. to leftnuts as long as a psychologist approves.
