My wife and have gotten along a lot better once I realized that accepting her was much more rewarding than trying to understand her. :)
Whoa! You are hot today Will! Those are words to love by!
I guess it doesn't work for everyone. If you can find someone compatible, whatever does work is great.
I can't disagree there.
Says the wise man with no interest in fighting.
You're right again!
I tried it the other way, Bud. There is no winning those kind of fights. In fact there is a better than 50% chance that those fights kill the relationship. :)
The accept rather than understand thing? Understood - AND totally agree.
Why does society think there are more than two?
Society doesn't think. A whole bunch of people think there are other sexual relations besides a man and a woman that should be respected as their individual rights whether from birth or choice.
There are also a whole bunch of people that think everyone that deviates from their belief of one woman and one man being the only allowed relationship are sinners and predators.
You have a right to choose which bunch you want to be part of. :)
I like that!
I agree, people can be complex but also very simple, if you get a large mass of people to agree that one thing is fine it will become the norm, in ancient Rome it was odd if you dont want to have sex with a child.
People are ready to have each other's throat for anything that makes them different, people have been slaughtered for stupid things like religion, sexual orientation even ethnic roots...
"You have a right to choose which bunch you want to be part of. :)"
The difference between a man and a woman is a primary factor in the stability of a community. If you choose not to participate in that stability, you have the right to get lost and start your own community someplace else.
As do you.
Why would anyone think that the universe must be divided into two and only two options? In real life there are always an infinite number of disjuncts.
The X chromosome is one of the two sex chromosomes in humans (the other is the Y chromosome). ... Females have two X chromosomes, while males have one X and one Y chromosome. Early in embryonic development in females, one of the two X chromosomes is randomly and permanently inactivated in cells other than egg cells.
[NOTE: - No disjuncts.]
You're talking about abnormalities.
So there's both random and always
The word "Always" does not appear in my comment.
[NOTE: - Still no disjuncts.]
So not always? OK. fair enough.
And I don't know what disjunct means. I always though it meant choices X or Y, with X being one disjunct and Y being the other, but I am probably wrong, I usually am.
So, what did you mean to say when you wrote - "In real life there are always an infinite number of disjuncts."
In any given situation, when you think you know every possible option there will always be at least one additional option you failed to consider.
So I just figure it is a waste of my time to second guess someone else's options, I can barely keep track of my own.
I have some good news for you Vic. They've been studying this sex business for some time now. They have it nailed down pretty good.
There are boys -
and there are girls.
Go ahead, run downstairs and check it out with Mom!
Ill check with my niece who recently was my nephew. Or my daughter's girlfriend who was raised as William. Or our family friend Isa who used to be Brent.
I didn't ask to check their underpants for the 'proper' configuration, I will leave that up to folks like you who seem to care about these things.
Do that if you must. But I can guarantee that each of them was born a boy, or a girl.
Each was labeled at birth without a dna test and based on a cursory examination of external genitalia.
I have been around enough to know that what looks like a tiny dick might be a big clit.
And what do you care anyways? That's not even what your post is about?
A chromosome does not identify your soul.
True enough! They do however identify ones gender.
I understand your thinking Vic but in biology and genetics things dont go that way, there are variations like skin color, eye color whatnot, but everything follows a strict general plan, if things go different 99% or the time it's bad news
I hear that. But I don't know what your genes are and you don't know mine - and I don't know or care what is in your underwear.
People who think it is their business to determine which 'sex' another person is or isn't are, excuse my french, mother fucking assholes.
Each person gets to decide for themselves and no one have the right to question their decision.
I understand you but this is not something you determine, it's not a choice, it's simply something we are.
And I know what I am and you don't know what I am.
It's not that hard, you're one of two things
And I get to tell you which I am, you don't have a say in it.
I can assume in the absence of information
Ass u me
Why are you so sensitive about this? No one here is dictating what someone should be, no one except life that is.
OK. then why are you arguing about it?
Arguing? No. A heated debate at worst, I'm a pain in the buttcheeks sometimes, I mean nothing by it, I just like to challenge the crap out of opposing views, sorry if I caused inconvenience. You didn't show disrespect so I apologize.
To answer you question. I don't know. It just bugs me when people say things like -"He's not a girl" or what not. As you said about who cares if they want to be call she instead of he? I just call her she and let it go.
The rightness of a view is sometimes the matter of perspective, since we aren't arguing something based purely on fact like the planet not being flat, different views different arguments.
For me it matters, is this person a real transgender with sexual dysphoria who is born out of place or is it some attention seeker that wants oppression points and special treatment, such people who will do harm to trans people everywhere.
Help me understand why it matters (to you) which of those two categories another person 'fits' into, and why there are only these two possibilities (dysphoria or attention seeking)? And lastly how it hurts other trans people if you don't know which category a stranger fits into?
You know ...
You can accept.Not up to you to allow.
"She had breasts but also a penis and a vagina."
-- Sounds complicated to me.
Give that MALE a cigar!
Platinum I agree with you. If you have the parts you are that if you get them chopped off or remodeled, your dna won't change.
a joke is this jenner thing.
When you say, fetal development, you're pointing to the epigenetic effect of testosterone during the prenatal period, eg on the SDN and SCN?
Ok. I'd really appreciate it is you could cite a website, or book or something because I want to know more about it.
Not being a regular Jack or Jill doesn't create a new gender, walking on eggshells to spare feelings at the cost of logic does.
Being a hermaphrodite is a genetic defect first of all, humans are a highly mobile species, true hermaphrodites are usually species that don't move much or remain still like snails or starfish. What logic base can you find in all those made up "genders"? The main argument is that it's all a human made concept, well nope not all.
The chance that the replication of DNA might go wrong is 1 to 10 000 000 but still errors happen and they are expressed in countless ways, from a mere biochemical imbalance to a full morphological and physiological handicap.
Fashion per se is a human concept, we used to wear animal pelts and stuff, behavior is DNA based, women have a mother instinct, men are more aggressive, women have a curvier shape to give birth, men have wider shoulders and more muscle mass to fight or work.
Gays are often looked on as freaks of nature, but logically thinking it might be a way to avoid overpopulation, some animals have it too, no wonder that a very small percentage of human population is gay.
This new gender fad is nothing but a trend to get more oppression points so that a person may seem more marginalized. And just because you're "seen" as something doesn't mean you are or aren't, impressions are strictly subjective.
People can identify themselves as a purple fire-breathing tri gender lesbian komodo dragon as far as I'm concerned, but the minute they force people to walk on their toes for them they cross the line.
There is a girl in Sweden who thinks she is a cat, wears cat ears and tail, hisses when people walk their dogs around her and pretends she can talk to them by meowing ( which cats only do to communicate with people btw ).
Will you somehow logically prove that her behavior is rational and normal along with the gender benders?
Sunny - You are my Friday Hero!
Thanks Bud, I'm pretty sure I'm on the kill list of many SJWs if they knew what I dare say too. Biology, evolution are my thing, I love to construct skeptical arguments using solid science.
I understood everything up to and including kill list. But, it all sounded very cool so, .. yea!
Don't be so modest, you know a lot more than you share :D
Like minded on this issue.
One wouldn't think that scientific stuff would / could be political, but the left has a knack for politicizing the strangest things. For example, when I'm told that a human fetus isn't actually human and that's why it's OK to kill it - that gives me pause.
Yes you're correct - I am right.
You had written "It really is not a liberal thing you know." That's what I was responding to. I didn't feel like you had politicized at all in your comment.
Hm, this time I agree on the separate topic thing, one is gender other is a clear mental illness or a hardcore diehard game of pretend.
Still, I think that the choose a gender like a bowl of skittles thing is also an attention fad, the amazing thing about the diehard liberal world the more marginalized and oppressed a person is the bigger chance their bullshit arguments are taken as truth.
How are any of these people oppressed if the moment someone says something they will be attacked with a barrage of SJW induced verbal diarrhea?
Ah trans people, that is medically proven you know? It's called gender dysphoria, it's still an abnormality, it's when people are born with the wrong sex, their brain works the same way as the sex they identify as but their body is different.
You should look up Blaire White on youtube she's a male to female transition and debunks the million genders trend, she's really cool and smart. People are so sour with her opinion that they try to debunk her not ever being a man so that they can paint her a bigot and not a person who has faced these struggles in life.
Sorry that I'm kind of a pain in the butt cheeks, I'm like that, I like to question things and often have an answer to opposing arguments, but we're all having fun here :D
No doubt we can be different, we are indeed, Fetal development is one heck of a thing, just all that DNA and replication just like constructing a building by following a blueprint, just look at all those amino acids and cellular differentiation, it's just amazing!
But (probably) everything we are is defined by what our own blueprint is (even if we cant prove the relation between specific things about us and the DNA), sometimes the order comes correctly built, sometimes it's not. Sometimes people are horrible even if they have no genetic defects, but most of the time deviation from the norm leads to disaster. People are born crippled in body and mind or deviating from the heard gets you killed in the wild or by the angry people you're not conforming to.
I cant fit that in a simple sentence
Btw where have you spoken about her?
"Gender is a function of neurology, not gross anatomy"
Gee, nobody knew that for the first few thousand years!
I'm the queen! 乂^◡^乂
Well a big thank you anyway babes it was very thoughtful of you. 乂
Hahaha! I think I've just wet myself.
It's all them pictures of cunt ugly Liberals you keep putting up. 乂^◡^乂
A cunt ugly. 乂^◡^乂
hey, Hey, HEY - You kids keep it clean back here. There will be no diddling under the bleachers!
Haha yeah 'cunt ugly' it's about as harsh as it gets.
Ada - Behave. Not cool.
No problem Budwick my apologies. 乂
Haha! I love it. 乂^◡^乂
Ah, pshhhhhhhhhhh millions of genders if you go to the right places and you can switch them on demand too!
Sounds like an interesting alternate dimension!
And the best part is that you can totally be offended and go apeshit if someone messes up your pronouns and everyone will call them a bigot
Oh, they got that here too. But, we only get two genders - so,...
Their obsession with sex....all the time, every minute...lol
Pure thoughts about sex?
If it's every minute then their is normally an under lying cause... that the guy may or may not know about.
Guys to a degree aren't allowed to show their sensitive sides and it gets bottle up into items that we can talk about... which is normally released with a more sexual tone.
Just a thought.
lol ....and I repeat: Their obsession with sex....all the time, every minute...lol
Every minute still sound s like too much... maybe it's just every minute that they're talking with you... you distract their mind
Maybe you're the exception, on that I will leave the conversation.
Ya know, I tried that and it didn't have the positive twist you put on it. I showed up at the front door naked with a 12 pack and Styrofoam container of hot wings.
She never even opened the door. I'm pretty sure the SWAT Team took care of my wings and beer.
I'm thinking there is a double standard here.
Ha Ha! Bud, you gotta read the fine print! :)
NOW you tell me!
lol You nailed it. lol
Is that what you do?
For the right person, I'm sure you could still do all three
Oh I'm sure it's good enough for some
Especially maybe someone that also needs to iron their suit too
That sounds like a great goal
Though hopefully you don't have any problem with white paws and no pants
Ha Ha! There are limits.
Ha Ha Ha!!
Ha Ha!! Linnster, you are a genius!!
wait? their wings involved? ...
I guess I've been settling too soon
son? .... mommy? (kidding)
I'm just not used to anyone calling me son.
Oh I could see some calling you Mami
Probably because you're talking to such a handsome wolf
Depends on policies of the place. If they have a use your own loose common sense policy then I rarely got carded even when I was under aged because I looked older. But I'm not that young anymore.
Um, I've gotten the beers too, so over 21 as well
It's the wings I haven't gotten and there are no age limit on those
Thank you, and you also
Stop reading women's magazines. That's horseshit. I don't know any women that want that, but they do like to see how far they can twist your boxers. Ha Ha!
Of course we have a double standard. It's because there are two sexes. If the queers had their way, we would have an infinite number of standards.
I agree, some want you to match something that's in their head... not too much, not too little... and they really don't want verbally explain it... That's always tough.
If they're artist, sometimes you can ask them to draw/make something of what they would like ____ to go and their artist work will give hints/details to what they expect.
And sometimes you can ask those around them, ie friends/family and get an idea.
Other than that... it can be extremely tough.
Maybe they do, who knows? lol
Nothing, really. There are things about individual males that have baffled or "confused" me, but nothing that is exclusive to those of that particular gender.
The inability to listen
My point exactly
Not saying all are like that but I do know a few
What confuses me is why they are called "opposite" instead of "adjacent"?
I personally don't think obituaries should 'state' the color of a person's hair or skin. They should be about their accomplishments and their character; they should only mention good stuff and bury the bad stuff with the body.
I think that people should abide by other peoples the self-identity. To me it's a 'no skin off my nose' situation.
If my mom suddenly self-identified as a african-american, male flamenco dancer of Scottish heritage I would simply reply, "that's wonderful sir, shall we dance before we dine on haggis?"
I can barely figure out who I am, that alone worry about who you want to be.
I can't understand why they aren't flocking to your door.
Yeah, I'd stay away from that one.
In general, the commucations differences.
I am often confused by men who don't understand the concept of personal hygiene
Shower once a year?
Yes those sorts of guys... :-|
The mind games and the interpretation of my words, I seem to be unable to read minds and somehow my words can be understood as offense, I must be cursed
I totally get that!
You look so nice with this new haircut. - You mean I didn't look nice before? Yikes!
They were looking for a reason. It's them not you.
The list is to long to even try to poct on here
I am not confused because I never think about it. T's so peaceful when you cut annoying things like men. out of your life.
Well! That escalated quickly!
Oh damn! I love shoe on head
Not confused. Females choose the wrong guys because they like to be the victim.
Nothing, I got those suckers pegged
