The Catholic church just came out with a pronouncement which states that being trans amounts to a "trend".

Well now that these experts have said this I know what I am going to do immediately; stop being transgender. Why didn't anyone tell me this before?

Next I plan to remove my very firmly planted tongue from my cheek.


  1. And THAT is precisely why I am no longer a practicing Catholic, although I will always consider myself a Catholic.

  2. I have been away from my fairly progressive parish for about two years while I went through my divorce and transition. I was about to call the priest and inquire about attending again, and whether I would be met with warmth or disdain. All I really want to do is go to Mass, receive the Eucharist, and go home. With this pronouncement, I wonder if my time isn't better spent finding a nice Episcopal church to attend? This pronouncement only applies to Catholic schools, but if you read between the lines, it sadly looks Pope Francis agrees.

    1. Dont you know they are experts on this subject Marcia and the church is infallible? 😉
