I don't know about genderfluidity.


You realize psychology is innately social, right?

Psychology is influenced by the social for sure, but it is not the social itself.

How so? The way I see it, psychology and neurology heavily indicates that the tendency of gender can be found in the brain as not necessarily dependent on one's sex chromosomes. And that this is likely what causes gender dysphoria. It makes sense to me that if you could have someone who's psycholog...

Such consequences, if I'm making the right inference, would defeat the purpose of freedom of speech. Just because you have the freedom to say whatever you want doesn't mean that you don't have freedom from consequences (such as your job firing you, a business banning you from their service/building...

There is freedom of speech, but I cannot guarantee freedom after speech.

You're making it out as if being non-binary and wanting to be referred to as "they/them" where applicable, is a kin to being a hyper otherkin headmatee or something. Are they not the same? Because someone just signed off on them, you're beyond the Poe barrier. Nothing is so stupid it won'...

You miss the point so frequently, its impossible to believe you're doing anything other than purposely engaging in bad faith. On the off chance you are genuine, no, being trans is not the same as having a religion, but they are both intensely personal phenomena that cannot be objectively proven or ...

Unless it inherently causes a negative effect on their life, why should it matter? Should we consider religious belief "not of sound mind"? After all, there's no objective proof for the veracity of any given religious person's theological beliefs. Being transgender is a religion. Religion...

We don't. I think it is safe to presume that someone speaking in good faith about their gender is right and that one could never know more their self perception than we could. So if someone is insane, should we just accept that, or force them into our norm? Neither. You don't need to accept insanit...

I know what bad faith means and see no reason why my application of it doesn't apply to your posts. Ironically, your dismissal of enby experiences and dysphoria counts as "not actually understanding". In fact, a refusal to understand. Besides, why shouldn't acceptance be a part of that? Y...

This statement is offensive to public morals though, because freedom of expression is held by western civil discourse as sacrosanct. So that's a self defeating axiom.

I'm seeing some debate over non-binary people so I think I'll say something. 1: from all the testimony I've heard, the vast, vast majority of non-binary people do experience gender dysphoria. I know I do. 2: they do transition, in the aspect as a lot of trans people, from one gender to another, jus...

Kind of yeah. It needs to be very hard for anyone to sue you for slander, lest we have a system where any rich or powerful person or corporation, when accused of severe misconduct, can immediately sue. That would be no justice at all. Certainly, we don't want society to become even more dominated b...

I've never been able to shake the strong suspicion that binary transgender people and the non-binary trans community are speaking about irreconcilably different things when they talk about gender identity, and that this is why there's a lot of conflict online.

This needs to be reiterated: I don't hate men. Am I tough on men? Yes. Are my standards high? Yes. Is life extremely hard for many men? Yes.

I think incitement of violence should be the border. Calling somebody names is just rude and should be subject to social ostracism. In most situations, it is not subjective whether you called on to kill someone or not. Compared to other proposed criteria (hate, personal emotions etc.) it's the most...

Censorship saves lives sometimes, but we also need to be careful how we use it. In Western European countries, for example, hate speech laws exist but are rarely used. That's why sometimes we need to strictly enforce the law and other times we don't. If every country with hate speech laws enforced ...

Paradox of Tolerance. A society tolerant of freedom must be intolerant of those who seek to end the ability to even express such tolerance in the first place. Thus, there is no such thing as a truly tolerant society. A free society cannot be "free" in the vein that laissez-faire types wou...
