What do you think, Troonette paedophile picked on the wrong children or just a Troonette finding out that even 12 year olds are more masculine than she will ever be? by ClassroomPast6178 in TumblrInAction

I suspect it will be toned down this year. I think the corporate offices are wary of the Bud-light effect.

Most gay people I know where already very suspicious of corporate pride displays and cynical of their actual motives (which of course is profit duh) so corporate pride seemed to be more an appeal to the masses because they thought the masses respond well to it. I think that as the bottom line becomes apparent corporations are going to figure out that their marketing and diversity officer types, along with twitter represent a minority of public opinion. The um, cult of woke, if you will. And don't reflect on the average consumer the majority of them don't care until it somehow effects them and then they dislike it.

Bud-light could have catered to gay events or given lip service to LGBTQ causes and all that all they wanted do, made some rainbow can advertisement, whatever, they ended up bungling straight into the culture war and associating their brand with gay. Which was hilarious, since that alienated their primary customers and even the ones that don't care can't drink the gay beer due to social pressure, and gay people don't drink bud-light anyway because it's a crappy beer to begin with and will ruin their "cred".

Apparently there are "studies" that transgenders don't have an advantage over women in sports, and may even be... at a disadvantage?? by stoptheearth in TumblrInAction

[–]Alienhunter 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

It's all about going into the fringes and finding the "wel nuh uh actually" shit.

Everyone knows males are physically stronger than females, so males will generally have an advantage in any sport where physical strength grants an advantage.

Are there exceptions to that? Sure I think so. Like gymnastics where flexibility is more important than strength, might be that specific case where trans-women are not at an advantage.

Or perhaps we go for some other sport that doesn't require much in the way of physical strength like chess. (Though that does give the curious result of course that men still dominate the rankings for some reason, I've long considered a theory where it is more likely for men to dedicate large amounts of time and energy to master something basically inconsequential to life, where women generally have some ingrained aversion to activities they don't see as practical, I also claim that the general stereotype of women disliking gambling to come from a similar position)

And they didn't have a good clapback for that beyond "kill the troll".

And sure it was half trolling but was also half serious. Like when you use the term LGBTQIA+ aren't you excluding pansexuals? Whether intentionally or not it's pretty heartless to do so right? So you had better include them.

The article is the epitome of journalism as well.

However, as noted by YouTuber ShortFatOtaku

Riveting source.

the original Japanese version of the game describes the character as an otokonoko or a femboy,

Elementary Japanese mistake so rediculous it basically calls into question anything this person says.

Otokonoko. 男の子

男 man 子child

Proper translation "Boy".

Like go look it up in any dictionary.

Anyway I've known about this for awhile as the trans elements on Nintendo sides of the internet would never shut up about it. Basically, it looks like this character was referred to as a boy in Japanese version, and was changed to be a girl in international version likely because Nintendo didn't want to cause friction with the US market. Or perhaps they figured it was just easier to not bother with the "joke" that the cute feminine looking creature thing is actually a boy the whole time since Japanese is naturally vague with pronouns where English is not.

Can't find textual evidence the character is trans though. Just loads of internet types screaming about it. Might have changed that in the rerelease as it seems the script got a rewrite but it looks to me so far that they've written it slyly enough that it's not outright. Probably to try to avoid a daily wire piece.

Nintendo has been typically pretty good at trying to stay out of this sort of thing but you've seen I creep in a little bit with their recent titles trying to avoid gendered terminology and the like on character select screens.

Gone are the old pokemon (are you a boy or a girl) and replaced with a more neutral (choose your character) type prompt for example.

I think we basically keep kids too clean and they don't get robust immune systems when young. Kid plays in the dirt when young they'll encounter all sorts of dirty nasties people didn't know about, we know about them now and they are "bad" but keeping the kids from them just causes the developed immune system to detect unknown hazard and freak out I think.

There is a stereotype for kids with peanut allergies being hyper sheltered for a reason. And I don't think the sheltering started after the allergy was known.

This guy's just pretending to be trans but I'm not.

The main thing is I never really had any issue with trans people, at least normal trans people beyond thinking they were a bit weird, but once you get into the activism circles it's like, well yeah so you say people can't pretend to be trans to predate on women? That's a retarded argument. What if I say "I'm a woman" wear a dress do I get to go to the rape survivors support club for women with zero vetting?

At least the normal trans people aren't under any kind of illusions as to their actual sex and aren't screaming about not being let into women's only groups and the like.

r/Atheism are fake atheists by xoenix in MeanwhileOnReddit

Most hardline US type christians believe it all is literally a kind of demonic warfare although they rarely are able to get things published.

I think the literary idea of demons is somewhat apt to the phenomenon of cultural panics at least. You've got the depiction of the demons whispering self destructive ideas into the minds of young people and while the question of whether or not there are actually demons literally doing such I do feel like it's a useful metaphor for how mob action can turn otherwise reasonable people into screaming lunatics.

r/Atheism are fake atheists by xoenix in MeanwhileOnReddit

[–]Alienhunter 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I think the problem with places like /r/atheism is they are more anti-establishment, at the time it was founded would be the kind of Judeo-Christian influences in government of what we might call the "Jesus republicans" or dominionists, basically the wing of the party that wants to establish a unequivocally pro-christian government that supports and promotes Christian values, rather than being specifically atheist.

Islam breaks the logic because they see Muslims getting a treated unfairly in things like the post 9/11 reactions and can't reconcile that with the fact that Islam is a particularly traditionalist and quite intolerant religion as a whole that would prefer eradication of the atheists rather than co-existence in many cases.

I think the problem comes around because most people are stupid and can't really get over their own prejudices to begin with, religion as a whole I think is a useful force for good in the world but that doesn't mean I think that religious states are a good idea. Likewise just because religious organizations I think are a net good doesn't mean all are equal or that there aren't problematic and dangerous ones.

In the case with the hardline islamists you basically have the choice of either kicking them out now or not allowing for any concessions, or risk the choice of either Jihad or submission later if they gain political power. Hopefully the oft touted corrupting power of western culture will be sufficient to convince the young Muslims to adopt feminism so they are too busy infighting amongst themselves to be a threat to larger society.

It's such a non-issue but I think the gay rights movement has given up on making actual meaningful policy action and instead wishes to just go for whatever quick and cathartic unhinged anger at an easy but ultimately unimportant target because making actual change is hard, requires people to actually not be massive twats and maintain a public image that goes beyond "I wanna do whatever I want al the time and nobody can stop me".

To put it in context Japan doesn't even recognize gay marriage, and they're having a hissy fit over a lesbian bar not allowing trans women in.

The US did similar shit with the wedding photographer case or the baker lawsuit. Like yeah the person is discriminating against you because you are gay. I think they probably shouldn't do that, but what do you hope to achieve? There are other bakers and photographers happy to serve you. Why do you want to force people who don't like you to serve you? What is the goal?

Seems like it just pisses off normal people who are going to now be more likely to be anti-gay than neutral. Especially if they think it's going to come to effect their livelihood. It rallies the religious base. Like nothing good comes of it at all. Just makes the cultural climate worse.

Japan is a totally different political environment but they risk causing public backlash still if they draw attention with dumb stuff rather than more important problems like housing discrimination.

The security concerns with the information going to China are legit but the government merely wants to have a monopoly on that sort of information themselves. They don't care about what the average person worrying about TikTok cares about which are the psychological effects and the marketing towards children. Because domestic social media companies do the same thing and they don't care because they are American owned.

I think American society as a whole just needs to start treating underage social media use the same way we treat cigarettes and alcohol. Hell I'd rather catch my kids smoking and having a pint then doom scrolling all day.

Yeah no shit. One it's reddit. Two it's people who have nothing better to do with their lives than go on Reddit and talk about their identity problems vs video games or movies or literally any other banal interest that is more fun.

Gonna naturally devolve into the most miserable types getting off on each other's misery I think.

Like any "mentally healthy" trans person isn't going around screaming about validation 24/7, they're just living their life and not giving a fuck if other people accept them or not. Frankly I get along fine with most of these people even if we have very deep disagreements when it comes to trans issues in general since they can actually hold conversations about things other than that.

Back 20 years ago when everyone was coming out of the closet as well was similar. Actual gay people that were otherwise normal? No issues. We don't talk about preferred positions or whatnot, 99% of contexts it's totally irrelevant. But there was always some group of "total fags" that literally would just go around screaming at people "you must accept us" and like, nobody likes you, not even the actual faggots.

I remember there being some demonstration for "national day of silence" for gay people or something where they just taped their mouths shut and refused to participate in class for a day and like, whatever as far as protests go that's pretty easy to ignore but I can't help but think what insufferable twats they were and how ineffective the protest was. Cause I was thinking like, ok so gay people don't have a voice so instead of speaking out for them you're going to just be annoyingly silent about everything? So random people who don't know anything about it are going to have their first impression of the gay rights movement as a bunch of annoying theater kids refusing to participate in class discussions and group projects, well you're just going to piss off a bunch of people.

Hey we've got a speaking test scheduled for the same day as our actual protest can you reschedule. Um no. You can protest and I support your right to protest, but the test is on this day and if you don't have a valid medical excuse you'll get a zero. But hey, you've got to make the decision if gay rights are more important than your grades anyway or else your protest is meaningless without some sacrifice. So if I move the date it hurts your movement actually.

Turns out grades are more important than gay rights, who could have thunk it.

"Trans themes" in art by alladd in TumblrInAction

[–]Alienhunter 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yeah basically. Take whatever trendy identity is going and people will find media that supposedly espouses those themes.

At a very basic point finding your "true self" or in other words the coming of age story is an old and fairly universal plot and the trans-narrative is a variation on that, albeit one that takes a kind of opposite approach to the traditional "accept who you are and your role in life" with "don't accept who you are and define it yourself" but that gets pretty messy into various points of view.

Very simply the trans types on the internet are basically just obsessed with their own trans Identity and try to find parallels everywhere because they desperately seek validation and acceptance from all sources, so if they watch a drama about say, a kid that wants to be a musician but their parents discourage them and encourage them to be a doctor instead, they're gonna be all like "omg trans themes!"

I agree they are basically statistically irrelevant in the long run but usually countries that go towards such centralized planning tend to be totalitarian states and they aren't usually tolerant of "alternative lifestyles" outside of what the planning committee have prescribed as best.

Definitely grounds for divorce I think.

The advice I'd give to the woman in such a situation is to basically be like nope and get out of the relationship before the real drama happens. If my spouse told me they were actually a boy or a girl I'd be long gone before they even realized I wasn't accepting of it.

It seems to me that any state that is interesting in controlling the means of production is going to take a keen interest in the means of producing people.

Like it or not gay couplings do not produce children. It stands to reason that any centralized planning will only value such relationships when they have a situation where they don't need more children. The massive post war population booms being a good example of this. Such a situation isn't sustainable and as population demographics shift you'll see a focus back on traditional relationships for procreative purposes.

I think a more interesting idea to ponder is the benefits of gay relationships for any sort of corporate entities. It somewhat makes sense to me that corporations would be interested in hiring gay employees as they are far less likely to take parental leave.

As said before the only winning move is not to play. You either straight up don't allow it or you quit. It wouldn't be allowed if the women on the team all quit in solidarity.

Since it's women's sports it's really a women's issue and I think rather than blaming the trans-women for taking advantage of these obvious loopholes (it is basically cheating) a large share of the blame needs to be put on the women who allowed this situation to begin in the first place.

Don't play games, don't fuck around, just give the ultimatum. Either you don't allow trans-women to compete on the women's team, or else I will resign. Enough women do that and the nonsense ends.

You don't have a choice anyway in the long term. If this is allowed more and more trans-women will dominate women's sports and it will essentially become a trans-women league by default and you'll be edged out anyway. Why not just quit of your own accord now and not bother to deal with that nonsense?

Aren't there those islands off the coast of California nobody lives on? Maybe we could get California to give us one as a gift towards the spirit of communism? Hell maybe could even spin the reality show as a way push the profits into the new communist community. Either way be infinitely entertaining.

Could be? Wouldn't be surprised if there was some minority of people into that, and some minority of people totally and utterly morally outraged at it. Though without the internet and the ability to self publish your opinions to the world, their thoughts will be lost to history.

I suspect that a good portion of these subcultures are very very old. Crossdressing for example shows up in ancient texts from time to time so I am almost certain that it has existed for millennia. Though I very much doubt you will ever find any literature written by cross dressers themselves until recently. Before the advent of the printing press literacy being the sole purview of the educated scholarly class and all that.

I think these days with the prevalence of smart devices, even if you're pretty vigilant on keeping them from exposure to internet bullshit, they're going to get second hand exposure, and you can't really cut them off from social circles without dire consequences perhaps worse than the second hand exposure itself.

I think you've got to keep a pretty even temper and maintain good lines of communication with your kid, about the only way to navigate now. You want to keep your kid open with you about what they are hearing and seeing so you can help them navigate it. If you aren't careful they'll close up and not tell you anything and then they're going to only get their guidance from the internet which is stupid.

Still can't allow dumbass stuff. If the kid wants to play pretend they are a fox or something whatever, that's normal kid stuff, if they want to play pretend they're a fox or something during class or at the bank or something that's a hard no, time and a place. Foxes don't go to school. They also don't get to eat dinner with the humans. If you want to play fox at the dinner table go into the basement and eat some rats like a real fox.

[–]Alienhunter 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I think it's more likely the consequence of unlimited unsupervised internet access vis smart devices.

Furries have an interesting history as a subculture and you can trace their history back as a group pretty far. It's a pre-internet phenomenon actually. And it seems like they've always had a lot of infighting between the more innocent "I like cute animals" wing and the more sexually lurid elements. I don't think these elements are naturally the same either.

I think that probably the rise of film as a medium likely triggered some kind of paraphilic response in some portion of the population that later became furries, this was likely increased in the 80's and 90's due to the prevalence of home video. The development of the internet allowed the more lurid elements space to spread. And I think the problematic issue of having cute animal characters engaged in sexual situations is going to mean that children are going to inevitably stumble across it. I don't think many are getting these ideas directly from the parents.

I think basically anyone born before the 1980's had no clue what the fuck was on the internet and didn't realize this shit was out there until very recently. It will be interesting to see how the people who grew up with this sort of unlimited internet access will raise their own kids. I suspect that they'll be more aware of the kind of content that can exist and be a lot smarter about how they let their kids access the internet.

I've got my own theory on this. Came after I heard some older relatives freaking out about a year or two back about the new thing "furries".

Now of course for anyone who spent any time online in the last 30 years to be spared the horror of knowing about furries is laughable, but a lot of these older people basically didn't spend any time online in the last 30 years and only started once the smartphones rolled out. So they get exposed to it and think it's a new thing. Now for course I can't say anything about this other than nod and express surprise or disagreement at it, because dare I go and say "oh yeah those people have been online forever" it's almost always going to be followed up with suspicion and accusations thrown towards you, because naturally how would anyone know about this unless they were a furry?

So more conservative areas like Utah, I think are more susceptible to it for a number of reasons. One, conservative culture tends to be more puritan and sexually repressed, which I think tends to "breed" more crazy people going into dark corners of the internet and finding weird little niches, rather than just being slightly more open and gently nudged away from the weird, the get good at hiding everything and there's no social dynamic to stop their descent into madness unless it hits a point where it can't be hidden anymore and they have no choice but to fully embrace the weird identity publicly as that is now the only social group that will take them.

Second it's basically taboo to discuss these sorts of things at all. At least from any point of intelligence. Anything of any sort of sexual nature in conservative circles is essentially a taboo subject unless it's simply condemning something that the reactionaries have reacted to already and is socially safe to condemn. As such they're almost totally blind to these weird subcultures and potential groups and basically know fuck all nothing about them.

Cue in teenage rebellion, jokesters and the like, who think it's hilarious to watch a bunch of Mormon women freaking out about litter boxes (because it is hilarious) and having nobody in the picture to reign in the hysteria because it's social suicide to say "Oh I know what furries are, they're an Internet subculture that has existed for decades, this is likely a joke".

Conservative Christian groups tend to take the story of Adam and Eve in the garden and glean from it a lesson that obtaining knowledge is itself a sin, instead they value blind Innocence. It's a very stupid position, as man is already a fallen race which has lost its Innocence, one is simply allowing themselves to be blind to existing evil should they choose not to attempt to understand it, or to learn about how it operates, this is one reason why conservative groups often lose out in cultural battles even if they have a strong position on some issues, they prefer to be reactionary and sit around and only take action after some perceived threat has become such a problem that it is visible to them, rather than proactively seek out and learn about as much of the world as they can so that threats can be known and identified, and neutralized before they become problems, often by far less involved and far less unpleasant means than what later interventions require. It's one of the reasons I'm very critical of soft language. It allows for the problematically innocent to participate in government and decision making to the disadvantage of larger society. If you get offended at words like "lame" instead of "mobility challenged" then you really should have no fucking place in adult circles. We can't discuss the actual problem without dancing around a bunch of dumb holdups, meaning we can't actually discuss how we are going to help people who are lame get as full of access to society as possible.

And we can't discuss furries often dressing up as children's characters and creating sexually suggestive content as a potential threat to children or their own development because some overly sensitive hag is going to shut that down and insist we only talk about nice things. Leaving the threat unknown, undiscussed, and present, with a newfound confidence that it can persist safe from criticism.

This then leaves the only people who knows about it on the fringes, and gives way to the extremes. And no intelligent conversation can be had.

Do you think Elon Musk will ever get us to mars? by elonmusk7 in AskSaidIt

[–]Alienhunter 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

No. Elon Musk is entirely a marketing guy. He's good at marketing big ideas and getting the scientifically illiterate to jump on board. He's very good at giving convincing sounding answers that will sway an otherwise uninformed listener compare to date more boring and dry technical answers.

We need only look at his constantly shifting timeline for reaching mars and building the colony. Dates come and go, it's similar to any apocalypse cult. Jesus is coming by 2011? Ok. Where is he? Oh shit missed the date? Oh well he'll come six months later. Oh shit missed that date too, where's the cult leader gone with all the donations.

He says some shit like he's going to send 10 million people to Mars by like 2030 or something? People believe him. But like, anyone with a rudimentary understanding of orbital mechanics knows you can't just go to Mars whenever, you gotta wait for the planets to "align" and get your launch window (or else it takes considerably longer and costs a fuck ton more) and that only happens about once every 18 months. How many people can you fit on a rocket? Musk's rocket is supposed to fit 100 people. But the best orbital flights we've managed so far only have about a dozen I think.

And to go all the way to Mars you'll need tons of supplies as well which further increases the mass you need per person and makes the whole thing harder. But like, let's assume that 100 people flights are even possible. And let's assume it's back in 2020 when he said shit like the 10,000,000 people on mars.

How many flights will you need to send that many to Mars? A hundred thousand. How many manned flights to Mars have we managed so far? Zero. And like if you're going to do that in a decade you only have about 5 launch windows in that time. Can we scale up and send 20,000 flights to Mars every two years when we can't even manage one right now?

Elon Musk's plans are all pipe dreams. He's making his money elsewhere. There's no profit to be found on Mars. Maybe he'll manage to send a manned flights there eventually. But his long term plans as stated are rediculous to the point of being totally unfeasible.

I think Musk's business model is to trick stupid people into giving him money. Simple as that. Stupid people vote more stupid people into positions of authority. Musk comes along and convinces them to give him money for some pie in the sky project that won't ever pan out. It doesn't pan out, but the money is "gone".

Electric cars are probably the one thing that isn't totally insane he's doing, because just about anyone is going to tell you that eventually electric cars will become the standard. (Though I think Hydrogen is likely to reach market penetration first) But even then you can see that Tesla is mostly a presentation over function luxury vehicle. They've got all that touchscreen and smart car crap that is flashy and feels "futuristic" to distract you for the problems the cars have in terms of efficiency and cost.

It's the problem with the gender identity rabbit hole. I think these online spaces basically feed into exasperating these underlying anxieties.

So like, this guy is worried about how he's acting like a gross man and all that because he is sexually attracted to women, just like a man would be. It's funny.

Ditch the identity side of things and you've just got a "feminine man" like I think it's weird if you want to wear a dress sometimes as a man but minus the identity issues you'll probably not have too hard a time finding someone who is into that and is willing to date you.

I know a few men who are very, "stylish" and dress in ways that aren't necessarily feminine but basically use makeup and nail paint and all that shit. And they always seem to have dates easily enough.

Course there's the whole "lesbian" fetish thing, like whatever if you're a man and into lesbians I can understand that but that's like being a fish into breathing. Not going to happen. I'll never understand why you'd want to identify as a lesbian since you will be the hero who will reduce your dating pool down to zero.

[–]Alienhunter 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I think that there's been a certain abuse of the feminist ideals away from promoting the education and development of women into competent leaders and fully contributing members of the community more into a kind of carte blanche to engage in "bitchy" behavior that isn't socially beneficial and engage in more hostility to positions they consider masculine.

I see it more as a kind of weakness of society to simply shit down poor behavior. Women who wish to engage with society as responsible adults are usually welcome, women who wish to engage in petty emotional displays are usually not.

I think the problem is that given a lack of real problems in modern society, the female psyche is somewhat predisposed to finding threats to their home and their clan due to millennia of evolutionary conditioning, in the modern era that often means that they are predisposed to finding problems where none exist and I think the affluent housewife living in a relative life of luxury away from the existential pressures of a substanence lifestyle has a deep psychological need to find problems or dangers in the world that they can fix, and lacking any real problems they will quickly make some or give underserved attention and energy towards minor problems best left alone.

Prayer group to speaks in tongues at Arizona Capitol, by invitation of Republicans who want a state ban on abortion by YoMamma in politics

[–]Alienhunter 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I think I'm this case it's well within the "allowed" territory of first amendment expression.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

I don't think you can construe an argument that a representative is unable to invite a religious group to speak publicly at the capital anymore than they can invite any constituent to speak publicly at the capital. And prayer is simply a form of speech.

I also don't think first amendment really prohibits the use of "religion in laws" at least as far as religious reasoning is concerned. It would be a gross violation of the first amendment to pass a law making the Catholic church the authority on abortion, but a law that restricts abortion would not quality provided it neither establishes a particular religion or prohibits the free exercise of a religion. There are many laws that prohibit religious expression but they need to fall under very narrow conditions outside free exercise. Human sacrifice is a good example. It's an established religious practice with historical relevancy but isn't considered free exercise since it infringes on someones right to live.

I also think it's not really necessary to make 1st amendment insinuations against this sort of behavior. You merely need to go and say "the opposition is literally speaking gibberish, why should we take anything they say seriously?".

Always nice to see the Otherkin pop up again nice break from the transexual madness.

So basically if she's self identifying as a Therian, it means she's gone down some internet rabbit hole and isn't mature enough to separate online crazy from reality. It also means she's probably gotten into weird chat rooms and those are filled with pedophiles ready to play the "your parents don't understand you but I do!" Pied Piper game and the kid will follow if you aren't careful. The younger child is probably just copy cat behavioring so it isn't an issue.

For the older child what you do is you go log into your internet router and start monitoring their internet history. Figure out what they are doing or where they are going. If they aren't going anywhere or talking to anyone weird, it's probably just a bizzare teenage phase they'll grow out of presently. Figure out if it's trending with her friends by talking with other parents to figure out if this is just a weird teenage social fad or if it's something she's getting from the dark places of the internet. If it's just cringe teenage stuff then it's often best to let them figure out shit on their own provided it doesn't go too far.

If it's dark internet shit then you have to be careful, being too heavy handed may push your child away directly into the predators waiting jaws, gather information first by keeping tabs on their browsing history but don't let them know that. Maybe block some IP ranges on the router so it looks like the sites they use don't exist anymore. As for the smartphone better to never give those to young kids in the first place but once the genie is out of the bottle it's not going back in, my solution, make the kids pay for their own phone. Yeah I could put you on the family plan but I don't feel like paying for your data. You pay me for it I'll put you on. Time to maybe go get a job? If you're paying for your own internet then you're out working in the real world and hopefully not getting sucked into the online space fully.

Any pilot regardless of who they are who puts on a bizzare display like this needs to be grounded. We don't know if they are drunk or suicidal or just having a moment but regardless we don't want them responsible for people's lives.

I've said before I think that it makes zero sense to allow kids to "socially transition" privately because the entire concept is just an oxymoron. Of course you can try to keep shit hidden from the parents by not telling them but that's always going to open up accusations of grooming and the actual sex predators will jump on that and take full advantage of it.

But regardless if you have the kid using their new name in class that means that everyone in that class knows about it, so it's public information, and those kids can either intentionally or unintentionally tell their parents about it, and those parents can alert the parents of the kid who has socially transitioned. It's literally stupid to think you can keep it a secret.

I've said before if I was a kid in this situation I'd just be approaching the kid that transitioned and blackmailing them. Hey you don't want your parents to know you changed your name right? That worth $5 to you for me to not let your parents know? Oh don't bother reporting me to admin anyway since if I get in trouble they'll have to tell my parents the reason why I got in trouble and they'll tell your parents anyway. I accept cash or PayPal, how would you like to make that payment? PayPal is easier to set up monthly payments with so you don't forget, what you thought this was a one time charge?

Oh hey Jane formerly known as Dick, I saw you pay off that kid over there to keep your identity a secret from your parents. I want to be paid too.

It's just a fucking disaster waiting to happen these policies.

That's because that's what it is. It's typical Blanchard autogynophile theory here. Search anime trans fetish material online and there's fucking loads of it.

I have a theory that a lot of it is driven by access to online porn allowing the fetishists to find each other and egg each other on more. As for why anime it's probably got something to do with that one popular comedy anime from the 80's that centered around the main character that was cursed to swap sex driving rule 34 content.

Children allowed to 'socially transition' face grave psychological risks, review concludes by xoenix in TumblrInAction

Not necessarily. You just need to get at the actual root cause of that desire and determine if it's either caused by some kind of abuse, is actually a deep seeded personality trait that will persist for life, or is just a dumb kid thing they say but don't actually know what they mean. The modern environment is all about affirming transitioning but kids don't even know what those words mean.

A kid might say "I want to be a girl" because he thinks that only girls can play dress up or some other stupid reason. That kid doesn't actually want to be a girl, that kid just wants to play dress up.

Kids don't understand sex.

I think they've captured the segment of the population that are, what's the word for pretentious insufferable busybodies that need to prop themselves up by feeling morally superior to whomever they determine to be the outgroup? Annoying gossip girls?

They'd use to be endemic in churches because that was the social network then and it gave them a moral framework to use to be mean girls. Now it's moved to social media.

There's a fine line between telling someone their lifestyle choices are unhealthy vs actually hating them that a lot of people just really don't get and they tend to go in one way or another. Jesus was going around chilling with prostitutes and other deplorables in his society but was also telling them not to continue in that.

Have gotten similar pushback from homosexuals when I suggest that casual anonymous sex isn't very safe. At least from the crazies. I don't really care if you want to settle with whomever but I do think there's socio-biological reasons for why society evolved to be hostile towards visible homosexuals and that if you remove the conventions of polite society and allow for that process to take place again I don't think it will be pleasant for anyone.

I agree. I think most of the stuff there is fake, but even if it wasn't why the fuck would you crowd source shit to reddit of all places?

Pretty much. It's just a collosal waste of money.

From reddit: "I find the term " cis woman" very validating and librating by gloomy_bear in TumblrInAction

[–]Alienhunter 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I always use it as the trump card in arguments.

I don't like the term cis, and if people call me that I tell them as much, my first exposure to it was that it was used as a slur on the internet and I find it deeply offensive when people refer to me as such, if they choose to ignore my preference there, well I see no reason to extend courtesy by using preferred pronouns and the like.

Quebec man has two healthy fingers amputated to relieve 'body integrity dysphoria' by xoenix in TumblrInAction

It surely seems insane to me instead of recognizing the mental distress and treating that, we just decide instead that the thing the mental distress is about legitimate and treat that instead of the underlying problems.

Why don't big corporations blast through DEI quotas by just claiming 100% trans staff? by rubberbiscuit in AskSaidIt

The real kicker is of course to claim non-binary status.

What's non-binary mean? Well according to the oxford dictionary it means "denoting, having, or relating to a gender identity that does not conform to traditional binary beliefs about gender, which indicate that all individuals are exclusively either male or female."

What does this mean? Hell if I know. But since it's so vague and basically self determined it means anyone can claim to be non-binary with basically no lifestyle changes and of course nobody can come round and claim "you aren't really non-binary" since you can simply start crying act offended and shut down that "harassment".

So I'm non-binary definitely, why? Well sometimes I wear blue but other times I wear pink. Sometimes I like to watch baseball and other times I like to watch a Broadway musical. Have I made any changes to my lifestyle since finding out I was non-binary? Lol of course not, see I was "always non-binary".

So just claim that for the free diversity points.

Surprise, surprise, new research from The Mayo Clinic raises serious doubt over “reversibility” of puberty blockers in adolescent boys. Concerning tissue changes to teenage testes, including pre-cancerous changes. by ClassroomPast6178 in TumblrInAction

File that in the "no shit Sherlock" file of expected outcomes.

I'm waiting for the class action lawsuits. Who could have predicted that chemical suppression of puberty might have long term negative results? Oh yeah fucking everyone medical degree or not.

It reads to me like everyone either exaggerating or making up incidents in some bizzare way to show they are more victimized.

The first bit for example, the accusation the school guidance counselor was casting out trans demons, that alone warrants a closet look but the story also claims that they passed out chocolate crucifixes? This sounds fake.

My take, social blindness towards not wanting to offend certain groups allows the schizos in those groups to get away with making shit up.

In Indonesia, trans women face unique challenges due to climate change by rubberbiscuit in NotTheOnion

Islam seems to be on the rise in Indonesia. They just recently passed a new sex crimes law that is very shari'a inspired.

When the religious culture encourages women to cover up totally it would make sense that trans women would blend in easier and not attract so much attention.

I don't think Islam is very pro-transgender but it's more anti-gay so they're "cool" with gay men chopping their penis off and sequestering themselves the same way that women are supposed to sequester themselves.

Bearded 6ft-tall trans athlete who knocked down rival during school basketball game 'was suspended from female rowing team for leering at topless girl in changing room' by xoenix in TumblrInAction

Sure the school might try to pain the women who quit as Nazis but how far will that fly? All the more reason not to play that stupid game. My admin wants to call me a Nazi for not wanting to play with men on the women's team? He's clearly insane, all the more reason not to be on any team he has influence over.

I don't have a problem with a trans-womens team. If the trans-women want to make their own sports team more power to them. If the admin fails to provide an actual women's league the women's league is just going to eventually become a defacto trans league anyway.
