The paradox of our time

in history is that we have
 taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower
viewpoints; we spend more, but
 have less; we buy more, but enjoy it less. We have bigger houses and
families; more conveniences, but less time;
 we have more degrees, but less sense; more
 knowledge, but less judgment; more
 experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less
 We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too
 recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly,
stay up too late, get up too
 tired, read too seldom, watch TV too much, and pray
 too seldom.
 We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our
 values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've
how to make a living, but
 not a life; we've added years to life, not life to years.
 We've been all the way to the moon and back, but
 have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We've conquered
outer space, but not inner
 space; we've done larger things, but not better things; we've cleaned up
air, but polluted the soul; we've split the atom,
 but not our prejudice; we write more, but learn less; we plan more, but
accomplish less.
 We've learned to rush, but not to wait; we have higher incomes, but lower
morals; we have more food, but less appeasement; we
 build more computers to
 hold more information to produce more copies than
 ever, but have less communication; we've become long on quantity, but short


on quality.
 These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men, and short
character; steep profits, and shallow relationships.
 These are the times of world peace, but domestic
  warfare; more leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less
 These are days of two incomes, but more divorce; of fancier houses, but
broken homes.  These are days of quick trips, disposable
 diapers, throw away morality,
 one-night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that
 do everything from cheer to quiet, to kill.
 It is a time when there is much in the show window
 and nothing in the stockroom; a time when technology can bring this letter
to you, and a time
 when you can choose either to make a difference, or
 to just hit delete...

Children should't be subject to life long medical choices

Very interesting statement, which I'm sure the #transinc community will claim to be Transphobic.. in natural. There is nothing bias ...
