I have no problem with people with diagnosed gender dysphoria getting the medical treatment that they need i.e. a sex-change and I tend to follow the ideology of if someone isn't harming anyone physically or psychologically then let them do what they please, but when it comes to these people who don't actually have gender dysphoria claiming to be whatever gender they please in order to make themselves feel special, I stand against it. The main reason is that not only are they trying to bend the laws of human biology in order to fit their twisted social movement and desire for attention, but they are also getting children involved. Little, young, easily-impressionable kids. Their stupid virtue-signaling has gone so far that they are claiming that children who believe in Santa Claus and fairies and would eat ice-cream all day, every day if they could are capable of recognizing that they feel as if they were born as the wrong gender and that it is not just a figure of their overactive imagination or their own desire for attention and to feel special and validated and that they are in need of starting to undergo a sex-change at the tender age of 11. It isn't clear what the psychological effects of these premature transitions are but I can only assume that they will not be good. Similar to that boy who had botched circumcision when he was young and so the surgeon decided to remove his genitals all together and put him through hormone therapy in order to make him a "woman". The boy grew up very unhappy and ended up going through a reverse sex-change in his teenage years but it wasn't the same as actually being a man from the beginning and he committed suicide several years later (sorry, I can't remember the boys name but it's a famous case, you might have heard of it).
There are many reasons why Capitalism will always conquer socialism/communism.
The biggest being that it doesn't try to ignore one of the most basic structures of human nature; greed.

Currency is not something you come out of the womb with. I also fail to see why anyone would be so psychotic as to want to abolish gender.

I'm pretty sure much of post-genderism is kind of explicitly transhumanist, yes.

In all fairness you'd call the source wrong no matter what.
Still he should brimg up a source just saying that may be why he's hesitant he thinks you'll never change your opinion

In his defense some people are lost causes and will find anything they can to support their argument and make up a reality. Not backing him up by I understand his lack of desire to.
I ferl the same way about everyone committed to an ideology. I commit myself to reason compassion and social liberty. Live and let live. Because it often seems more harmful to oneself to oppress others instead of letting them believe what they want to believr.
In short, He likely thinks you're too ideologically committed, and I feel the same about nearly everyone so I understand his feelings.
Just my two cents.

Parkus, I'm fine with that being your opinion. I don't hate it. But you need to substantiate it with something.

Say you do categorize people exclusively based on sex... What happens with everything about gender that has nothing to do with sex? What happens with clothing, language, customs, etc.?

Species is supposed to denote different life forms that are unable to breed with each other and form fertile offspring. That isn't really a social construct. The fact that for extinct life forms we cannot be certain if they where unable to interbreed does not change the fact that species actually have meaning beyond a social construct.


I used to think this as well. But nature rarely goes along with clear cut definitions. Just a few examples:
[*]What about the many asexually reproducing organisms.Does each individual (or lineage) count as a separate species?
[*]What about groups of animals which produce fertile offspring, but only interbreed under rare conditions? Are lions and tigers a single species? How about Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens?
[*]What about infertile individuals? Do these belong to any species at all?
[*]What about those social insects which have three biological genders, with subgroups (drones) unable to reproduce?
[*]The ability to produce fertile offspring is initially a continuum. As a new species evolves, it may still be able to reproduce with its "mother species", although with reduced fecundity.

The Parkus Empire wrote:We all know what gender dysphoria is: it is a medical condition where one's gender identity, which we now know to be hardwired, does not correlate with one's sex. This is a widely documented medical phenomenon.

I argue that postgenderism, "I'm my own gender, " or "no gender" has zero to do with this. Such positions have no medical support, and are basically "I'm a special snowflake, short and stout."

What are your opinions on "postgender" theory?

Why do you care what other people identify as? I don't see what anyone gains from forcing people to conform. Shouldn't people have a right to decide for themselves?


I like your live-and-let-live standpoint, but I'd still like to understand what is going on. One reason is to give the "new gender people" their due: There is a clear sense of grievance. If I and others have been been giving offense without meaning to, I'd like to make amends. So I need to understand the new genders: I consult Wikipedia, where I discover the matter is only slightly more complicated than string theory. The gender definitions are arbitrary, unstable, confused.

So, please help me by critiquing this understanding:
It was a big help to learn that the discussion is only indirectly connected biological gender and sexual preference/behaviour. Instead, what is at stake is the alignment between biological gender and a persons likes and dislikes. Example:
[*]While Stanley's friends are loud and enjoy blood sports, Stanley prefers spending quiet time reading Proust, watching ballet and looking after his maiden aunt.
[*]Jill stands out among her friends for her assertiveness. She loves hunting, chews tobacco and eschews "typical feminine" pursuits.

We could call Stanley sensitive, and Jill, perhaps, a bit manly. These are well known concepts. So what is gained by inventing new gender names?

But I don't think there needs to be 76 (or however many now lol) of them and I don't think they each need different pronouns.


Hi I am neither. Let me explain. I was asked when I first started trying to understand people who where trans how I would feel if I woke up in a body of the opposite sex then my own. I thought about it for a bit and said, cool and I would have no issue. If people can feel gender dysphoria then it would also make sense that there are people who cannot feel gender dysphoria.



Cool!
This is near the top of my "what if a genie were to offer you three wishes" list. Nothing to do with gender uncertainties, everything to do with intellectual curiosity. I'd love to spend a week as a woman; experiencing the good, the bad and the ugly from woman's side, and come back a better/wiser/more understanding man a week later (I suspect I'd still want to).
Besides, I'm sure the book would sell well.

There isn't a place for gender dissidents in the public discourse. We have a stable foundation in traditional, nuclear families, and breaking working conventions with little insight for future could leave us with irreparable damage, including dangerous and revolutionary movements and plummeting birth rates here in the West. There is much more at stake in this topic than just freedom.

Intrigued by the underlined.

Dangerous and revolutionary movements, including the LGBT movements that have more often than not greatly disturbed social order. Aggressive minorities alienate traditional men and women and incite many good people to violence, like in Russia. We allowed the movements to destroy our customs and now we are here. Be reminded that my statement about breaking conventions did not specifically imply the revolutionary gender ideas alone. More like the so-called progressive ideas in general.

As for plummeting birth rates, the liberal ideas about gender have decayed our picture of a working family. Too many women buy the revolutionary illusion and have fewer children than is sustainable to be competitive internationally. The image of the female gender has changed in a scary way. Hence we fall behind, just because family and children don't seem to matter that much for the progressives. What more of postgenderism (?), we are doomed.

If people react to LGBT+ people fighting for their rights by becoming violent towards LGBT+ people, they are not "good people", and it's not okay to blame LGBT+ people for the violence inflicted upon them.

The notion of not having children, or having fewer children, is "revolutionary"?

I don't really see what's scary about it, but then again I also don't sympathize with the "good people" who involve themselves in anti-LGBT+ violence, so...
