MSG said...why the publicity?...
I'd've thought obesity would reduce the functionality of a knee jerk reaction.
What's significant about a story involving three major sects of Judaism which might not all feel the same about LGBT issues, about not just Jewish law, how each sect might interpret and apply Torah but how secular law plays into even the child's birth certificate? Why would that be brought into conversation by a Jewish newspaper for its Jewish audience? Oh mystery of mysteries.
If only we had a
lawyer in the room worth his pillar of salt to help figure it out.
From the perspective of the audience of that newspaper there's lots of real issues highlighted by the story. So yes, it is a worthy story. Of course, you'd have to find your way out of your own fat head to see that. At the rate you shovel shit you should start seeing the light of day any moment now.
The story involved an orthodox-raised transgendered father, who in transitioning purposely left the gift of child bearing intact, later impregnated by artificial insemination.
For living life in the gender he felt meant to be, for maintaining the gift of a body which can bear children, for desiring a loving family of his own, having the capacities of love and of giving birth, this person risked family relations with Orthodox relatives to find some happy as a Reformed Jew and wound up also with the blessings of the Conservatives.
Why the publicity. Story? What story? Yeah, right, hardly interesting at all, you putz.
