FSM on homosexuality?

Postby frankenc on Mon May 08, 2006 12:28 pm

What is the FSM's stance on homosexuality? I'm researching it. =)

Thank you for your help!

Love who you want to love, and be tolerant of other's choices of partners (provided both/all are consenting adults). All genders and sexualities included.

I'll see if we can dig out an old thread on this, and I'm moving it to a more applicable area....

Here's the old thread:

He's a tolerant deity. His stance on homosexuality is the same as His stance on heterosexuality or bisexuality.

If the pirates are more than a month in the open sea and there aren't wenches on board one of the crew members is designed as "the bride". It's the only thing Babilonian ancient scripts mention about homosexuality, so I suppose in any other case his Noodlineess lets us do what we want.

The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is explicit on this point:

May His Noodliness lead me to a place of knowledge for I see only two genders. May He open my eyes and reveal the true diversity of His world.

At my company, a few years ago, we were redefining our data model.
In the definition of a 'Person' gender was an included attribute. Almost everyone assumed it was a two-valued attribute (M/F). I caused great muttering and fulminating when I pointed out (we are a medical corporation), that even in my limited experience it is far more complicated than that. I forget the exact numbers, but I believe the ISO (International Standards Organization) recognizes nine genders, and one Medical Standards organization in the US recognizes fourteen.

To give some illustrations:
Simple Male and Female, everybody recognizes.
Hermaphrodite (Male and Female simultaneously) is a surprisingly common medical fact.
Some of our facilities are involved with Transgender Surgery. We need to be able to characterize those patients.
Homosexual and Bisexual Male and Female may have Privacy issues in 'mixed' gender rooms.
Genetic gender may not be the same as Social Gender for everyone...

And coding for Gender raises huge privacy issues. One would not normally consider that disclosing whether someone is male or female is a big deal, but think about some of the above situations...
In some cases Gender is extremely sensitive medical information.

Thanks Mero.

I have a friend who has had transgender surgery, so I am aware of some issues. But I had no idea how gender issues are being addressed by the world at large in terms of coding for gender etc.

I have to agree with Mero as well. It always struck me as strange that there are only ever (at least in my experience) two options in the "sex" part of an application. How hard would it be to include at least an "other" option?

Anyway, we're straying from the main topic. I think this basically sums it up well enough.

Basically, I think the point is that it's a non-issue.

Our noodly lord is of ambiguous gender, but since he* loves EVERYONE, then I suppose you could say he swings. His noodly appendages are certainly swingy.


The term "he" is used merely as a convenience, here.
