They're stronger and bigger physically.

They also don't have to take time off from work to gestate or breastfeed a baby (which contributes to discrimination when being hired and contributes to the wage gap - many women get paid less simply because they make the decision to take more time off for their babies).

They can put off having children until they're in their 60s or 70s, whereas women have a biological clock and have to make sacrifices during their childbearing years if they want a career or vice versa (i.e. making career sacrifices to have children).

The communism thing... I think it's because these kids want to spend all their time on their phones and the internet but they don't want to work. Communism to them would mean a universal basic income where someone else would fund everything for them (kind of like all those GoFundMes that fund surgeries). This way, they can be on TikTok or YouTube as a career. Even if they only make a few dollars from it - it would be okay, because they have the UBI paying their rent/food. All the TIMs I know still live off their parents' money even though they're in their 30s, so I've seen this play out in real life. The TIMs are "professional gamers" but when I ask how much they make from their streams, they say nothing. Mom and Dad pay for rent/food while the government paid for their surgeries. The next step is for the government to pay for everything once the parents are out of the picture. They're basically kids who never grew up and need a higher power to take care of them and coddle them.

I feel like so many of these people are navel-gazing to the point where they have no real-life skills and can't work for themselves, and they don't see anything wrong with this. They feel entitled to everything - which includes the best parts of capitalism and the best parts of communism, but none of the downsides of either.

Being muscular and having a good physique falls into the "personal responsibility" category. Getting fit isn't something that can be handed to you - you have to work for it, which lines up better with the conservative viewpoint of personal responsibility and working for what you have.

Keep them busy with sports and hobbies. The more they fill their life with skills and hobbies, the less they'll feel like they have to create their identity with what they "feel". If your kid is too busy practicing their soccer skills in the backyard, they're less likely to be inside on the internet being indoctrinated.

And I agree with what the others here say - less internet (or more restrictions), and pay attention to what's being taugh to them in school.

She also found out that she was fired by Disney through Twitter.

Understandable. I didn't mean to imply that I'd antagonize the mods, I'm sure their jobs aren't easy. It's just annoying that only certain conversations are allowed in certain spaces, and that the rules aren't necessarily applied consistently. After being censored once for a dumb reason, it just makes me less likely to engage - and I'm sure OP agrees. It's hard to have a nuanced conversation when you're removed for wrongthink. Anyway, to each their own.

I'm 95% certain it wasn't rhetorical based on the context, but your reasoning makes sense.

I wonder if I'd get my comment removed for saying birth control can lead to a higher risk of a stroke - this is in line with what I shared about abortion (I said multiple abortions can lead to an increased risk of incompetent cervix which can lead to preterm miscarriage). I wonder if they'd treat the birth control information as "restricting reproductive rights" too. Hmm, maybe I'll keep that in my back pocket and bring it up over there one day.

Still, a woman's discussion board removing (well documented) medical info about women's procedures seems scummy.

Hey, I saw your post and upvoted it, and I upvoted your censorship comment too because I thought it was bullshit that your comment was deleted. It wasn't uncivil (or whatever their excuse was).

I've been censored on Ovarit before for the dumbest reason. There was a post asking "why would people be pro-life anyway?" so I shared some reasons why people are pro-life (I've watched a lot of youtube videos about both sides), and I had my comment deleted for "sharing conservative talking points." It was like - wtf?? - the post was literally asking for the conservative position, so I shared it. And when I brought this up, they said some of the medical information was "misinformation"... okay, it wasn't (the medical info could be found on .gov sites), but if they thought it was misinformation, why not reply with reasons debunking it instead of just censoring it completely?? That's called having a civilized conversation. But no, they went the censorship route.

Anyway, they're just as guilty of groupthink and censorship as other places. This is why I prefer saidit.

Sometimes I feel like I live in an upside-down world when I think about the things he did compared to how hated he is. And now the dems are being praised as "a new hope" even though Parler is gone, a bunch of people I used to follow on Twitter are gone, I had to unfollow a bunch of pages on Facebook so that I don't get witch-hunted for "wrong-think", my nieces now have to change in the pool changerooms in front of men...

All my friends who like unprompted hugging the most are trans, which is setting alarm bells off in my head right now. it's interesting that there's so much about hugging/touching in this quiz.

Also, music turns me on . It's interesting that music wasn't even an option for "erotic material", especially since there was so much focus on listening (e.g. recognizing voices, hearing noises from far away, etc.)

People are really now arguing that all children must be put on puberty blocking hormones, period. Anyone who disagrees must be uninformed. by Chipit in NotTheOnion

They also don't develop sexual maturity, so no orgasms. It seems creepy... like keeping kids sexually immature forever but constantly trying to make them live up to an expectation that they can't meet, so they'll always be looking for approval. Super weird.

It's still extremely harmful. Look at Jazz Jennings. He went on puberty blockers and therefore only ever grew a micro-penis. When he eventually got surgery to get a "vagina", he didn't have enough penile tissue to turn it inside out to make a neo-vag. The poor kid had to go through multiple surgeries, take skin off his thighs, and be in constant pressure/pain. He also will never have an orgasm, never have children, doesn't know what sexual stimulation or arousal is, etc.

Even if he didn't get the surgery and changed his mind, he'd still have a micro-penis and diminished sexual maturity/arousal.

And to top that off, he'll never be a woman no matter how many surgeries he gets. There is no surgery that can turn a male into a fully functional female, or vice versa. He still looks like a boy, even after all that. Telling children they can change sex is a lie.

It's a horrible life.

I found the 1600 figure in a few places including a Guardian article and I'm guessing it comes from here where it says ~1600 is the average number of women killed by intimate partners.

I really want to write my own letter and post it on my social media:

"I am pleased to announce that I identify as a woman. Yes, I was born female and although growing up was difficult, I am now secure in my womanhood. This is really scary though because being a woman comes with risks. Over 1600 women are killed a year in the US. Women are more likely to be trafficked and assualted sexually. The statistics are staggering. Discrimination against women is rife, as we're often called 'cervix-havers' or 'uterus-owners' and denied sex-based spaces, but I hope to endure despite this discrimination. I'm proud to be a woman and I embrace fully who I am. To all the women who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse, and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I hear you, and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better."

It's trans privilege.

Just like the person on reddit last night who called me a terf... I quickly browsed through his history and he claims he's a woman, a transwoman, nonbinary, a lesbian AND most of his posts are in r/mensrights. So he gets to claim the whole spectrum while yelling at me for not wanting to be called a cervix-haver. Trans privilege!

Yeah I clocked him right away too. It's so distracting because I can never tell if they're meant to play biological women or transwomen when I see non-passing TIMs in shows. I knew for this one it was supposed to be a real woman based on the time period. So dumb. The trans community complains when trans characters aren't played by trans actors, but I constantly see transwomen playing women's roles on Netflix.

That's the only episode he appears in. I enjoyed the rest of the series.

Does anyone else lose respect for people when they put their (very obvious) pronouns in their social media bios? by arcticbasket in GenderCritical

I watched one of Steven Crowder's "Change my Mind" videos and it was "there are 2 genders, change my mind".

Well, a non-binary person (obviously female) sat next to him, shared their pronouns, etc. Crowder slipped up once and she tore him up for it. But then a super virtuous TRA from the crowd jumped in and said something like "stop talking over her!" and of course the NB didn't even notice the protector misgendering her, even by accident, even though you could hear half the crowd mumbling and chuckling because of it. That's the whole gender BS in a nutshell.

edit: here's the virtuous TRA misgendering the person she's defending at least four times, lmao

There are a few infertility troll groups on reddit that will complain about being invited to baby showers and wallow in the shittiness of the situation - and some will mention unfollowing their pregnant friends if it's too painful -- but as far as I know, none have ever demanded a change in language from pregnant friends or made people bend over backwards to pretend they're not infertile. Nor do they wear fake bellies or take care of realistic dolls to simulate the fantasy of it and make everyone call them "mom" (or change the definition of mom/mother to all people who desire to be moms). And they definitely don't make their pregnant friends censor themselves.

*And there are also post-infertility groups where women accept that they're infertile and learn how to move forward without making it a significant part of their identity.

Charlotte Clymer: "This is the first time a presidential election victory speech has specifically mentioned the word "transgender" and made a commitment to us. Joe Biden has got our back." by purrvana in GenderCritical

Yes, all the women I've seen in GC circles who lean toward Trump are from UK, Canada, etc... places where trans laws have already gone too far, and we're all trying to warn US women not to go down that road because once the US goes down the trans rabbit-hole it'll be harder for the rest of us to scale it back. But many American women are completely set on Biden being better for women than Trump.

Posie Parker is a good example. She's very anti-Biden and said she'd vote for Trump if she were American despite being pro-choice and liberal-leaning all her life.

edit: Or who knows, maybe if the USA goes full TRA it'll peak a lot more people and things will push back. Maybe next year if a bunch of trans laws are passed followed by trans-women entering the Olympics, we'll see some major peaking. I'm not super hopeful though considering how much the media drooled over the "stunning and brave transwomen" who were elected this past week.

In California, the gender identity indoctrination is filed under their "anti-bullying" course, so look out for that. I believe you can pull your kid from sex-ed but not from anti-bullying courses, so if you're in Cali (or somewhere with similar policies) you'll have to take it up with the teacher/principal.
