No prediction here but all all this is happening too quickly. Whatever happened to our integrity and to preserve culture and norm? Nothing wrong with any of this and I respect the right to free speech and now "feel". But I really think this "why does it matter" mentality is going too far. We need to step back and assess the long term impact. It's fine for a person to identify with a certain culture or sex but having prime time tv reality shows with Bruce aka Caitlin, Ryan seacrest producing a show with a father of 3 now becoming a mom, white woman identifying as black... This is a bit too much too quickly.

You watch too much TV. Put down the remote, shut it off, and live a normal life, and watch how normal your life becomes when you divorce yourself from talk radio and the TV

I applaud these times of change. Not too long ago, I identified as a Eurasian man, but now I've embraced my Blackness. And my womanhood. I am a Black butch lesbian now. And who can say otherwise? No one.

As if the white woman passing herself as black has anything to do with trans people. Trans people have always existed. It's more in the forefront now because of social media and other forms of modern technology.

It is indeed a strange society we live in now and its getting weirder by the day. No one wants to tell someone they have a mental disorder so we are supposed to say, hey you think you're a woman when youre not, good for you. It was only a matter of time before it got to people thinking theyre a different race now. But if you accept those who think they are a ____ trapped in a _____ body and support their want to live another life, then you have to support this trans-race thing and whatever else comes.

Funny thing about 'freedom' is that it allows people to do things that you don't approve of.

That's why most Americans are fundamentally opposed to the concept. But they like the word.

So Al Sharpton was hunted down to get his opinion.

Al when off on her parents and blamed them for this mess and how could any parent do that to their child.

Then again he could hardly address the lies and deceit when he is being investigated for tax evasion
