Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong…it is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum not as two opposing sets of ideas.” - Emma Watson

Back then they were called cross dressers. As medical technology 'advanced' people with greater commitment actually started altering their bodies in the belief that they were changing their gender.

It was unnatural then and it still is.

I'm sorry Brit. I didn't mean to confuse you. I wasn't complaining at all. You and Bub had just finished exclaiming to one another about how no one cares what I have to say. I commented cuz it appeared to me that you two DID care. It was the topic of your conversation.

I guess if Emma Watson said it, we can all sit around in a circle and sing kumbaya, and everything will be OK.

She's right. That's how it should be for what I see. The stereotypes are guesses, they're not a fact for everyone. But we live in a "Me-Society". Old, young, left, right, rich, poor - the norm appears to be a self-centred attitude.

I've lost count how many times I started speaking about this and the people against it, instead of reading "Everyone is different. We shouldn't lock people in boxes. We should give people the freedom to be who they are without shaming them for it" (which is the main message. It's about accepting outside the norm), they are reading "You have to be like me/You can't fit the stereotype. It's wrong". They make it all about themselves, as if I'm forcing them to be who they're not - which just makes it all ironic, since that's what they're going against in the first place.

Anyway, while I agree with the message, I don't think much will change while I'm alive. It's going slowly and I hope it gets there someday though.

Most reasonable I would say. As a rule, Cons don't like celebrities expressing their opinions about anything. This young woman may be a Liberal or she may be a Conservative but she sure isn't a dummy.

Well, people who are against Celebrities giving their opinions don't like it only when they're saying something that disagreees with their views. The moment a celebrity says something that fits with their beliefs, then automatically the celebrity knows what he/she's saying and their words become relevant and important.

Yep, some people are like that - they put down those who have a opinion they dislike, targeting anything other than the idea itself. They completely avoid touching on the issue itself, instead preferring to criticize something personal about whoever said it.

Also, in the minds of some people, when a celebrity says something that disagrees with their views, then all the people who agree with the celebrity are automatically doing that just because a celebrity said it (and not because they can think for themselves).
(Man, that paragraph was way trickier to write than I care to admit. lol - hopefully it's clear, but it was hard not to have it become spaghetti).

Also, well said, as always. (biggrin)

You wrote it well. I understood without an issue. And it's true. If you agree with a celebrity, obviously you're only doing it because you're a sheep that can't think for yourself.
