Economic systems invented by men have done more for women than feminism has by brick in BPF

True, a lot of leftie het women preach self-sacrifice, but won't give up anything for the sake of the movement. If you drain yourself indiscriminately for other people it's good, but denying themselves anything for integrity's sake it's 'ree you're oppressing me am i not a martyr enough for you'. Like in our local feminist groups there are a bunch where wifies complain about their husbands, expecting them to leave, which most of them can, is misogyny, but them expecting childless, unmarried women to help with managing babyboys and the hubby is heir birthright, so that they can continue to fuck men and make new ones. It's impossible.

On the main topic, in post-soviet russia all the right women have are from the government, and the only reason they gave it to us is because the men in power decided every man should be able to profit from women and not just her immediate owner. Commies allowed feminists to exist at the times of revolution and then banned them flat-out as 'borgie shit'. At the very beginning there was some effort to get women out of homes and into factories, but it turned out men will never willfully share the workload of 'reproductive labor', so women got locked into the double shift, working like dogs at a job and in the house, and that in absence of 'bourgie consumer goods' that could lessen the load. Men got to reap all benefits, while keeping their wives and their prostitutes (who were jailed often, naturally, unlike punters).

In later soviet movies there was more mommy happiness propaganda than in 80s backlash craze. Yeah, honey, you are capable and smart and a pro, but you must have some dick-dragger at home to be haaapy. The state functioned as a moral inquisition for women - you wanna dress 'unmodestly'? Bougrie whore, out of the party! Child out of wedlock? What scandal, give back your party ticket! You get the clue. And not being a party member means you are a doomed hobo, basically. No freedom of speech is implied.

Domestic and sexual violence was a fact that went unspoken, sexual harassment has never been addressed. Abortions were allowed, and then forbidden from Stalin onward with women never having a say, then allowed around millennium on a men's whim again. Neither was contraception available. Women bore all the cost of male 'needs'.

There are no 'foremothers' to thank for anything, they were verboten, and the commie shits who forbade it demand gratitude for letting us work for and get fucked by party dudes.

They never give us anything they took away first, they never give us anything they aren't direct beneficiaries of, and they demand gratitude, tall fucking order thanking male systems honestly.

The "trans rights" movement wouldn't have consumed everything in its path if it had stood on its own. They need to use black women, intersex people, gay and lesbian rights, reproductive rights, etc... as shields, to prevent people from taking a closer look and ask questions and if, in spite of this, you try to use some skepticism, you're labeled as "unkind" at best.

Everyday the US just gets worse.

Americans walk around like zombies thinking everything is fine.

The Bill of Rights has been repealed.

The debt just keeps growing.

The US is conducting multiple wars, but the government won't say where, protesting is illegal, and Americans are too degraded to care.

Americans are so retarded and blinded by hate now that they hate illegal immigrants, love trade wars, want guns banned, want the minimum wage raised, and demand that college be free.

The elites are trying to mop up any remaining shred of liberty by banning declawing, sunscreen, straws, texting, vaping, yoga pants, and dog meat and Americans praise every asinine decree.

Americans used to fight Nazis and Commies, but now have become Nazis and Commies.

Americans used to love morality, personal responsibility, balanced budgets, peace, and freedom, but now Americans love immorality, dependence, debt, war, and tyranny.

The US collapse is one of the most disgusting events in history.

Maybe the USA won't collapse for 30 more years, but the US imploding next year seems just as likely.

That just not true, "sex spectrum" model solves nothing and just othering intersex people like myself, and hurting intersex youth. Sex spectrum is saying that I am less female and more male or that I am "other, third sex". There only 0.2% of intersex people and only around 1-1.5% of intersex people are trans, so "sex is a spectrum" does not help to transgender people at all (as almost all of them are unambigiously male or female - both physiologically and raised socially as such), but hurts intersex people a lot.

Binary sex is much better, because it is saying that every variation is equally valid, that I am same female as any other female, not "less on spectrum scale". Plus - why use for humans different scale and classification than to every other creature on Earth? Humans being special and above nature sounds like religious belief, tbh.

Second reason why "spectrum" is not solving anything, is because in every single case where sex matters - matters real sex and not "where on scale" it is and not "what gender you are". With my condition (SW CAH), after I was born, if I don't receive correct male or female treatment (they different) - I would die. And later in life I need to receive special treatment based on my sex, or I will get sick and die. And complications are different for each sex, so doctors must know what to expect as well (like I got "Secondary PCOS" - not sure why it called like this in English, and I need to take birth control pills to normalize hormonal levels and periods, but males would have different complicationsm like low fertility sperm, etc, and they will need to take different medicine). For transgender people sex matters a lot, because majority of health issues and treatment they must receive are sex based as well (as even with body alterations, majority of their bodies are still works as their birth sex, not as their prefered gender). And not aknowledging it can be deadly, I know one transwoman died by insisting on receiving same treatment as females, and there a bunch of cases when transmen risked their lives by writing their sex as "male" - as example here. Division by sex is very important in healthcare, sports, safeguarding, safe spaces, some statistics, feminism, shelters, parental rights and some other topics. And "spectrum" not works in any of those situations, because "less male on spectrum" is still male and have typical male body structure and parts where it matters, even if some other parts of their body are a-typical.

In every single other situation sex (and gender) should not matter AT ALL, because if it matters - it is called sexism. Treatment of issues and of people should be the very same regardles of their sex (or gender) everywhere but in few topics named above, where sex matters.

If you account for certain medications, CICO might be nearly impossible to keep up with. If you take a medication that lowers your body's requirements for energy by decreasing the metabolic rate, your body won't need as many calories and you end up screwed. Plus there's water retention. Personally, my body doesn't give a shit if I even went 100 calories below my intake (and I take Adderall XR to boot), if I eat bread I'm going to have an immediate 3-5 lbs water retention gain over the next few days.

I had pretty great luck with low carb, losing all pregnancy weight and more--leaving me more than ten pounds less than I was after high school graduation (that was before I went back on my meds, so Adderall can't take the credit). Different things work for different people though, and it really just seems like a toss up. Low fat diets and low protein diets are truly awful though, like abysmally so. Cholesterol is the parent of a shit ton of hormones, and when you're not getting enough it's going to start screwing around with other body processes.

Respecting and understanding the culture is part and parcel of understanding any entity of worship. If you find good sources, the mythologies within will usually have some kind of information about how the culture once was. Cultures change over time though, so you would almost need to look at human anthropology within the area for that time period of heavier/peak worship. Different gods will have stronger staying powers than others too.

That guy is just a butthole though, he's just kissing ass when the cultures he's trying to protect/gatekeep/be a bastard about would probably rather see him piked.

All: Can homophobic slurs be reclaimed by non-LGB people? Are all trans people allowed to reclaim homophobic slurs for themselves? by Fleurista in GCdebatesQT

[–]ZveroboyAlina 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I don't see how slurs can be re-claimed, especially when those slurs are not used against your group at all.

Will it be fine to "re-claim" the N-word by asian, for example? Asian is person of color in USA, just like T is part of LGBT, so similar situation. It makes no sense like this, right?

Re-claiming agressive slurs is pretty bad thing to do as well, because it just makes usage of slur more wide and not fixing the issue - as it will be re-claimed only in some communities. The "LGBTQ" is not used in some places, because there Q is used as slur to this day, so saying there "LGBTQ as LGBT and queers" is homophobic. Especially if it is like in USA and Canada, when "queers" are mostly heterosexual people. I am finding it as very offensive.

In the US, a law, the Equality Act, is being pushed by the Democrats that would have gender identity trump biological sex, which begs the question:

What does that make "same-sex" attraction? Would that mean that only two people with the exact same gender identity can be referred to as "same-sex" attracted?

And why does the UK get extra gender identities?

Keep him away from TV, computers and phones, unless you can regulate what he sees.

Be aware of what he's being taught in school, and join with other parents in protest if the school tries to push gender ideology.

Be aware of his friend group and their parents.

There's a book by UK author Rachel Rooney (sp?) about accepting yourself. Geared to young children to innoculate them against gender ideology.

Constantly send the message that he is who he is and he's wonderful. Let him chose his clothes; if he chooses girl clothes be fine with it but remind him that he's a biological boy who can like what he likes without shame.

When I was at university, decades ago, I worked in a pre-school which was kind of a lab as well in that experts were observing the kids. We let the kids chose whatever they wanted out of the dress up box. We had one kid, around 4, who was convinced he was a girl for a whole year, and dressed like one, then went back to dressing like a boy. No one batted an eye at his choices either way, and that helped him find himself.

I'm open to learning how to loose more thoug

CICO, calories in calories out. If you eat more calories than you burn, you gain weight. If you eat less, you lose weight. Nearly all of a person's daily caloric expenditure comes from their metabolism, which for all practical purposes, can't be changed. So the best way to lose weight is to eat less. And it doesn't matter what you eat, you could live on donuts and lose weight. Don't even need to exercise.

As a caveat though, the 2.5 donuts that would be your total calories would leave you hungry as hell. I always found protein heavy meals to be most filling but some people love a ton a vegetables.

The Chronometer app is the most accurate one I've found for estimating losing weight, all you really got to do is download it and count calories, although that is pretty awful.

I would like to share my thoughts about transracial compared to transgender and get feedback of any flaws in my logic, if someone feels inclined to reply. I'm not looking for a debate but I just want to hear if anyone disagrees and why.

So we agree sex is binary, there is only the male and female sex. You can't be 15% male and 85% female or any other variation, there's no mix, it's either one or the other. But there are mixed race people. You can do an ancestry test and have it come back as 15% or more of something you had no idea of, and most people aren't 100% anything but everyone is absolutely either 100% male or female. Ok so stay with me until the end here... I'm White but if I took a dna test I wouldn't be shocked to find out I have 5%-15% Black dna from my ancestors. But if I did that and came out and said I identify with that and want to be called Black on paper and socially people would be enraged with me, understandably. So consider how ridiculous that would be. And remember how sex is binary but race isn't. The conclusion is that it's actually MORE ridiculous to claim to be the opposite sex than it is to claim to be a different race. Because again there's absolutely nothing between male and female but most people have all different kinds of ancestors and races.

Ok that's it, tell me I'm wrong if I am, I can take it 🙈

I think the sports issue and Rand Paul's grilling of Rachel Levine opened the door to normal Americans.

I think that door is going to blow off its hinges if GC people on the Left, especially GC LGB people, start screaming their heads off that women and gay rights are under attack from the TQ+, as well as women AND children's privacy, dignity and safety.

And to fucking morons like your friend who do the whole thing how do you prove your a woman, you can tell them since the advent of women's toilets, which wasn't that long ago in the US, women have had NO FUCKING PROBLEM telling who was a woman. Because idiots like your friend hadn't demanded we let men into our bathrooms, a butch-looking woman was still assumed to be a woman.

And in a locker room it's even less of a problem because most trans - around 90+% still have their penises.

But conservative voters who don't want Equality Act-type legislation give credit to Trump, and will vote for him again partially because they give him credit, which he doesn't deserve.

If a transwoman has such an allegedly female identity, why would it be okay for them to call themselves a slur used against gay men? Seems like if they really thought they were women they’re just being homophobic and claiming it’s ok because...? They’re not gender normative? Sexist and homophobic double whammy.

Slurs are gross and imo it’s gross to perpetuate them as a cute funny reclaimed name. Being called a dyke for my clothing choices never made me wanna embrace the term as a somewhat gnc woman. It just made me resent the idea that lesbians are inferior people who have a dress code.

It doesn’t appear to do anything to stop the slur from being used as a slur, or more importantly, to quell the ideas that lead to the slurs being used.

I don't understand the question? Better for whom?

You keep complaining about how Christianity killed millions of Europeans in other posts. Rome conquered and massacred as many Europeans as it could and 'civilized' them by ridding them of their own ethnic/tribal culture and replacing it with theirs just as you claim it was wicked for the Christian world to have done.

(BTW I don't agree with that idea which I consider a fundamentally semitic impulse to endlessly kvetch about how this or that killed people all ideas and all empires want to become dominant it's how they work.)

So by your own logic -- not mine -- shouldn't you be denouncing the Romans?

Also I think you're confusing me with someone who doesn't think race is a thing or significant which couldn't be further from the truth.

Truth be told I know very little about the history of Ethiopia so I'm not the person to ask about it.
