Federal law is null and void when it conflicts with the constitution. That's just SCOTUS doing its job.

You think police being legally allowed to enter your house against your will without a warrant is worth it if a handful of crazies get their guns taken away earlier than they would have otherwise (i.e after getting a warrant in response to them being committed)? If so, I strongly disagree. I'll take the fallout from the handful of deaths resulting from this ruling if it preserves our 4th Amendment rights.

That 60% stat is nonsense. Even for the single dose J&J vaccine it's around 72%, and notably it's 86% against the severe infections we're really concerned about. The other 2-dose vaccines have efficacies in the 90-95% range.

You're arguing that everyone should be forced to take an experimental vaccine whose efficacy is largely suspect so that everyone will feel better.

That you personally don't know how to do quality research an issue has no bearing on how the smart people make decisions. We already have a case study in what happens when you get the majority of the population vaccinated. Israel was getting shots in arms even faster than the US was, and now the majority of their population is fully vaccinated.

And what was the result? Why don't you look at their case numbers and death rates and tell me. Looking forward to your next impotent ego defense rant so I can keep dunking on you.

We have saved so many children's lives thanks to vaccines that even if it were true, it would still be a retarded argument.

Seatbelts save hundreds of thousands of lives every year, but there's probably some small handful of freak accidents where someone ends up dying because they were wearing a seat belt. This vaccine argument is like pointing at those deaths and saying that if you cared about people's lives you wouldn't force them to wear seatbelts.

I looked into this, and found that she was referring to this document. While it does contain alarming language that could be interpreted as supporting a reduction of the age of consent, this is a lobbying coalition, and nothing is being "pushed through the UN".

Would anything the PIE or NAMBLA puts out be interpreted as a threat to statutory rape laws? I think the answer to that is pretty clearly no. Call me when you've got a legislature actually discussing it on the floor.

It's about the character tropes present in anime that they wish they embodied, and for the record it's definitely not limited to guys, either. I knew girls that read manga when they were in middle/high school, and I don't think it's a coincidence that we're also seeing a lot more AAPs (autoandrophiles) following the rise of hentai (porn manga), specifically yaoi (hentai featuring male couples with the intended audience being primarily female).

She was on a suspended sentence for the same thing, so that's why she went to jail now.

I wish the UK had similar free speech protections to the ones we enjoy in the USA, but either way it's because she was a repeat offender on a suspended sentence, not because it was holocaust denial specifically, that she went to jail for so long.

The slippery slope fallacy isn't really even a fallacy for exactly that reason. Sometimes the slope really is slippery.

One of the main reasons TRAs have gotten as far as they have, is that people that haven't looked into it still assume that this is a continuation of the gay rights movement and that, like the gay rights movement, this is fundamentally about equality. In some cases, like not being fired for being trans, it is. But obviously in a lot of other cases, like sports, it isn't.

Lupron hurts kids just like testosterone and estrogen do. And the evidence that for most kids it was doing so for nothing has been there all along. Surprise surprise, the same drug that we were using to chemically castrate sex offenders, and that was also already shown to cause muscoskeletal issues when given to kids to block precocious puberty, is also turning out to cause the same problems when it's given to kids to block regular puberty.

The only reason western society is going through this phase right now is because wealthy/influential autogynephilic men, with the support of the alphabet lobby that needs a new justification for their existence since Obergefell, are now pushing the "trans children" narrative to obfuscate the fetishistic roots of their motivation to "transition".

Bruce Jenner famously got caught by one of his teen daughters trying on her clothes before he was "out". When she told the family about it, he told the family he was a liar. Now he's out telling people that there is no meaningful difference between male and female athletes, and also pushing the trans child narrative.

The "trans child" narrative has always been a farce. And now, it is being exposed as such.

It wouldn't be Saidit without a racist take, now would it?

Some urban cities have been seeing a huge rise in carjackings performed by teens. Apparently the local gangs have started recruiting them for specifically this because even if they're caught, they're usually let off easy because of their age.

And in this case, it wasn't "murder", but felony murder, which is where someone dies (whether intentionally or unintentionally) while you were in the process of committing a felony. One of the girls tazed him, which caused his body to convulse and floor the gas, which led to a crash where he died. Carjacking by itself is reprehensible, but the teens weren't trying to kill him.

You can't really define "troon" without acknowledging that, which is a problem, because on UrbanDictionary you are no longer allowed to acknowledge that.

So you think he's just a glutton for punishment with a penchant for polite troll-esque discussions, like a mere hobby.

I'd hardly call it punishment. Maybe you come away with the same beliefs as you did before, but that doesn't make the other person feel beaten. In most of the conversations I've had on here where there has been disagreement, I certainly didn't feel like I was being beaten down by some superior mind. Just because the other guy didn't agree that CO2 is a potent greenhouse gas, doesn't mean I feel beaten. You just realize after hanging out on here a while that people cling to their beliefs, and it doesn't matter how good of a case you make.

Meh, you were mostly right. The TW's that dominate the media landscape right now are largely AGPs, so your statement mostly holds. No need to apologize for not explicitly stating that your statement doesn't apply to everybody.

You're half right about the aggressive behavior, autism, and cluster B stuff. It's just that it's not all TW; it's a specific type of TW.

Most TW match one of two typologies: autogynephiles (AGPs), or homosexual transsexuals (HSTSs). Some of them have a mix of traits, but the majority fit pretty cleanly within one of the two.

HSTSs are more the classic transsexual that you were aware of 20 years ago. They were typically very effeminate during adolescence, are attracted to men, typically transition at a young age (before 25), often get "the surgery" and feel very dysphoric about their penis, etc.

AGPs are starting to dominate the trans landscape, and are in a lot of ways the opposite. They were usually straight before transitioning, didn't show a lot of signs of femininity in adolescence, usually have male-typical hobbies and come from male-dominated career fields (such as STEM, the military, etc.) It's this group that will identify as "lesbian" after transition, and this group who has higher rates of autism, cluster B disorders, etc.

And what's crucial is to understand that due to the very nature of autogynephilia, identifying them as men is highly "disruptive". This is where the aggression and illogical behavior originates. Here's a quote from Alice Dreger's book "Galileo's Middle Finger" that describes it -

There’s a critical difference between autogynephilia and most other sexual orientations: Most other orientations aren’t erotically disrupted simply by being labeled. When you call a typical gay man homosexual, you’re not disturbing his sexual hopes and desires. By contrast, autogynephilia is perhaps best understood as a love that would really rather we didn’t speak its name. The ultimate eroticism of autogynephilia lies in the idea of really becoming or being a woman, not in being a natal male who desires to be a woman.

I highly recommend this article to understand how AGPs are different from the "classic transsexual" that used to be associated with LGBT, and how their agenda is causing strife within the community. I can also recommend this interview with the psychologist that actually coined the term if you want to learn more about what AGP actually is.

Intersex is not the same thing as trans, but I can't understand why you would get the two confused, because the trans lobby has been trying to conflate the two for a few years now. Intersex people are people with DSDs, or other genetic disorders that lead to the appearance of traits more typically associated with the opposite sex. But none of those apply to trans people, who are (unless they happen to also be intersex) born very clearly as one sex or the other.

Most people, if you explained to them what a super was, would identify themselves as a super if then asked. I don't think most people are aware that the trans lobby is claiming that being a straight guy means you're supposed to be attracted to trans women, unless you are transphobic. I don't think that they're aware that the trans lobby claims that a lesbian who says they wouldn't date anyone with a penis is being transphobic. Yet that's our reality.

The super movement is just a response to that. It's trying to not invalidate trans people, while also putting our foot down and declaring that even if we're the majority, our sexuality is not shameful and not up for discussion.

Dissent is conveniently against the rules by AmericanMuskrat in MeanwhileOnReddit

Myspace died because they intentionally kept the site's interface shitty, so that you would have to click through more pages to browse, so that you would see more ads.

Digg died because they kept making changes that catered to power users (moderators and such) but that marginalized the normal user. Then they came out with their redesign, and that was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I think Reddit might eventually see the same death, because they keep banning everything that doesn't agree with this very particular leftist narrative that most people wouldn't agree with, and people get tired of being silenced.

The Ship of Theseus is made of replicas of all of its original parts. The question underlying the premise of the Ship of Theseus no longer applies when your wooden warship has been retrofitted with a machine gun.

If you really feel the need to bring the Ship of Theseus into this discussion, the question would be whether the modern Navy that previously declined to purchase the Ship of Theseus to use as a warship would now be interested in doing so since it has been retrofitted with a machine gun. And the answer to that question, by the way, is the same no as before.

Edit: Now that I think about it, bringing up the question of the Ship of Theseus in the context of this discussion misses the mark in two major ways, not just one. The question was never about whether the Ship of Theseus was still a ship, since the answer to that was always trivially obvious. The question was whether it was the same ship as the one that was originally built. Whether it is or isn't, that has no bearing on the discussion of whether or not a man that has had a uterus implant is still a man.

Kinda sad nobody cared until it became an issue for men.

Actual lesbians were ahead of the curve on this, because they were the first to have to deal with these waves of new "lesbians" demanding access to their spaces. The reason it was a new thing, even though transsexuals have been around forever, is that there is more than one "type" of transsexual: autogynephiles (AGPs), and homosexual transsexuals (HSTSs).

Historically it was the HSTSs that were a part of the LGBT rights movement, but now that there is mainstream acceptance the community is becoming dominated by the AGPs. The whole AGP typology is interesting and might explain a lot if you happen to have any trans "lesbians" in your social circle. I recommend reading this excellent article "The Elephant in the Room" that explains how AGPs are causing strife within the LGBT community.

Superstraight isn't an alternative to "transphobic". What made it blow up was that in describing it as a "new" class of sexuality, they fall under the LGBT+ umbrella. Denying the validity of a super's sexuality is superphobic, in the same way denying that people are really gay is homophobic.

In super parlance, straight = attracted to women and trans women, super straight = attracted only to women. Gay = attracted to men and trans men, and Super Gay = attracted only to men. In describing their sexuality in this way (acknowledging people as still straight or gay if they're attracted to trans people), you are also giving trans activists what they said they wanted: classification as the men or women they say they are. But you are also asserting your sexuality in the process.

Trans nuts that try to shame and marginalize supers and question the validity of their sexuality are being just as intolerant as the transphobes they complain about. While the movement was satirical in origin, they're actually entirely serious about what they're saying. "I acknowledge trans people as the gender they identify as, but I'm still not attracted to them".

Twitter locks out Dr. Naomi Wolf after she questioned coronavirus narratives and lockdowns by Drewski in censorship

Lol, Naomi Wolf has made a career out of being wrong about basically everything.

"Wolf was a guest on a BBC radio program, publicizing her new book, “Outrages,” a study of the criminalization of same-sex relationships in the Victorian era. She spoke passionately about discovering “several dozen executions” of men, including teenagers, accused of having sex with other men.

“Several dozen executions? I don’t think you’re right about this,” the host, Matthew Sweet, said, very politely filleting one of Wolf’s central claims.

What Wolf regarded as evidence of executions — the notation of “death recorded” on court records — indicated, in fact, the opposite, that the judge had recommended a pardon from the death sentence. Sweet said he could find no evidence that anyone had ever been executed for sodomy in Victorian Britain, and furthermore, that Wolf mistakenly regarded sodomy in the court records as referring exclusively to homosexuality when, in fact, it was also used for child abuse. “I can’t find any evidence that any of the relationships you describe were consensual,” he pointed out."

I get that rejection sucks, but does it always mean that the rejector is actually a trash-tier person?

I'd rephrase the question. Does it ever mean that the rejector is actually a trash-tier person?

Given that the person asking is in a vulnerable place now that they've put their cards on the table, rejecting someone in a nasty or unnecessarily harsh way does make you a garbage person. However, no one owes anyone else a relationship, and politely rejecting someone you're not interested in does not in any way make you a bad person.

The image is fake news anyways. Minneapolis only reduced their police budget by $1 million, which for a city that size is peanuts. The city where George Floyd was killed did see a spike in violent crime following the incident, but so did the rest of the nation. More cops did take a leave of absence, but it was like 100 for the year instead of the normal 50ish.

It's just presenting a narrative that doesn't really line up with reality.

I get what you're saying. Feminist activism was the progenitor of modern cancel culture. I would like to push back by asserting that there is a substantial difference between a subreddit banning viewpoints on their own subreddit, and a subreddit trying to ban those same viewpoints on the wider site.

Feminist communities can more or less peacefully coexist on the same site as mens rights communities as long as they understand that they're supposed to keep to themselves. It's the same with any other diametrically opposed community. I don't think deleting opposing opinions on their own subreddit makes them hypocrites for getting upset when their entire subreddit is nuked.
