The DSM-5 requirements for a gender dysphoria diagnosis:
--"involves a difference between one’s experienced/expressed gender and assigned gender, and significant distress or problems functioning".
--it has to last "at least six months" and
--is shown by at least 2 of 6 criteria.

But hey, maybe a diagnosis of gender dysphoria isn't required before they start carving up body parts.

Joe Rogan Experience #1520 - Dr. Debra Soh by DR373737 in GenderCritical

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

Dr. Soh doesn't seem to be overly concerned about the damage that porn can do. Imagine young girls today whose first impressions of sex are what they see in porn? It's got to be incredibly scary and disturbing--enough to make you not want to be a woman.

That’s why I was glad that Joe Rogan pushed the reality of porn addiction when Dr. Soh dismissed it. It was kind of funny because his insistence could have been viewed as mansplaining. Here’s a non-expert guy pushing his ideas about pornography on a woman who is a sex researcher. But porn addiction is a real problem. I believe that porn addiction, and in particular, sissy hypno porn and forced feminization porn has led to the explosive growth over recent years in the number of autogynephiles. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at /r/TGandSissyRecovery/. It’s a sub for men, (thousands of them, often very young), struggling to pull out of that nightmare world. They can’t even go to therapists because the majority of therapists will just tell them they are trans and to just accept that. So that sub is one place where they can turn for help.

I’ve wondered why there isn’t more talk about the damaging impact of these types of extreme porn and specifically, how it’s "turning" many teenage boys and men into autogynephiles. So, it was at least illuminating to me that Dr. Soh, a sex researcher who has issues with trans ideology, doesn't even seem to consider porn to be a major area of concern.

I’ve also noticed that many GC women dispense with the issues of porn addiction and autogynephilia by reacting with disgust and anger. I get that. But we can’t just throw these issues onto the “pile of problems with men” and move on. If this is one of the reasons why a trans wave has suddenly swept over our culture, we must stem that tide by addressing where the ever-increasing TIM population is coming from. So, I reiterate, I loved that Rogan argued why he believed that porn addiction exists.

Furthermore, I think it's wonderful that Rogan keeps talking about transgender topics. Many radical feminists don’t like him for a variety of reasons. But if you look at the big picture—he’s saving children from being pushed onto the trans train. Between his recent interviews with Abigail Shrier and with Dr. Debra Son, and all the other times he's talked about transgender issues (and taken them seriously), he is raising awareness to an absolutely huge number of people. He's not perfect, and he certainly makes a lot of mistakes, (like for a while he kept using the term TERF, not realizing that it is offensive). But he's curious, he's learning and he's helping so many other people to find out what is happening. I absolutely believe that there are parents out there who, thanks to Rogan, now know that there are serious dangers involved in allowing their kids to "transition" (even when a doctor recommends it!), that they need to ask questions, that they need to be very wary of it, and that they are the last line of defense in protecting their children from going down a horrible path.

Pharmaceutical companies, therapists, surgeons -- all raking in money from this revenue stream. But, even though I know it's true, I'm having such a hard time fathoming that there are so many people in these industries/professions who are more than willing to hurt children in such extreme ways in order to make a buck. Well, we must persevere and try to shine light on this nightmare.

Cancel Culture VS. Ellen by Anon123 in GenderCritical

This is a valuable perspective and a good reminder. I never liked Ellen's show and the totality of the things I've heard about her do not make me feel sorry for her. However, you are absolutely correct that women are held to different bullshit standards than men. I see it all the time and I've seen it for decades. As a young woman I came to see that women in the workplace were assigned roles like "bitch", "mom", "flirt". It's been galling to see how men can just "be". They don't have to constantly check themselves or their words or their demeanor.
I guess one final point though is that we should be careful to not give "get out of jail free" cards to people based on their "intersectionality". To me, Ellen was too much of a shitty boss to get a pass because she's a woman. Man or woman, I wouldn't want to work for someone like that. So I'm not going to defend her. But like you say, you just don't hear these types of stories about male celebrities--mainly because it's "OK" for men to act like "bitches" (ha!).
Anyway, thanks for this good food for thought. It is absolutely worth pondering.

Don't feel alone. There are so many of us who are GC, and so many who don't even know yet because they've never even considered the issue or they don't know any of the pertinent info. The truth will win out and you'll meet your undiscovered friends.
In the meantime, just know that painful life experience is oftentimes the base ingredient for wisdom. And as you move on past this rough patch, you get the hard-won gift that no-one asks for--resilience.

At some point, however, my love of cooking, my empathy for others, and the fact that I cry sometimes led me to understand that very often, I'm still a woman. That's when I knew that I'm actually gender fluid."

But even if I convinced the room, I'd still have the gender diversity trainer reporting me to HR...

Yeah, I grew up in the seventies. The whole environment of the time made me a little baby feminist. (Though mom wouldn't have necessarily called herself a feminist, she definitely wasn't shy about pointing out the shit women had to go through that men did not.) Anyway, I was surprised, offended & saddened by the return of the princess shit for little girls in the nineties. I think part of the reason why it was so big was that by then, so many items were being made cheaply in China. People could suddenly buy so much more crap for low, low prices at Walmart.

Yes, just noticed one today. Since I'm not familiar with saidit.net rules, I wasn't sure to what extent mods are allowed to remove comments. I clicked on "report" to see what that looked like and sure enough, there was an option called "This is not a debate sub" -- and the person was debating. So that's good.
At least this site now has a block function too now. (I guess this wasn't available until yesterday.).
Now I just would like to be able to "tag" users. (I like doing that if a person stands out in some way -- usually in a good way.). So far, I've found this info on how to use RES for saidit.

How to use archive.today. First, bookmark it as a favorite so you can get to it quickly and easily: http://archive.vn
Next, pick one of the 2 options:
1. Red box “My url is alive and I want to archive its content”.
2. Blue box “I want to search the archive for saved snapshots”.

Red Box/Archive something:
If you’re pretty sure the content has never been archived choose the red box.
Paste the url into the blank space and hit “save” (on the right).
(Sometimes it saves it within 10 seconds. Sometimes you wait in a queue and it’ll take a minute.)
It creates an archived version (actually both a webpage and a screenshot).
Just copy the url of this archived version and share. (Or don’t. But at least it’s archived.)

Blue Box/Looking for content that may have been archived:
Say you click on a link where the content was deleted or it’s behind a paywall. You can copy that url & paste it into the blue box blank space and hit “search” (on the right).
If you’re lucky, someone will have archived it, and the content will show up.
If you’re not so lucky, archive.today will send you to 4 other options where you can search: Google Cache, Archive.Org, WebCite, Megaladon. Very often I can find the content through one of these other options.

And that’s archive.today. It’s really a wonderful resource, and it only gets better with the more people who use it.

He says he only wants to have on guests who he's interested in talking to. Plus, these are lengthy, free-form conversations rather than debates or standard "interviews". So, his target audience is himself.
I'm very glad that he's interested in this topic.
And I'm also glad that Abigail Shrier told him that "terf" is not something we call ourselves. He's used that term on other episodes and even explains what he thinks it means to people, and he's had no idea that it is offensive.

We also need to follow our gut instincts. They evolved over thousands and thousands of years for a reason and we ignore our gut instincts at our peril.

Thanks for setting this up. I'm freaking out a little because this, along with all the other wins for TRAs is a bit much. Orwellian future? Nope, Orwellian now.

Interesting read. Most of this article covers ways in which regulations and our tax dollars pay to incentivize and reward private car ownership.

In the U.S, (if you don't live in somewhere like NYC), you are really screwed if you don't have your own car. Recently, as I drove across a local bridge, I was thinking they should re-name it "Poor People's Bridge" because I see more and more people who are obviously poor and/or mentally ill walking across the bridge to get to and from a supermarket. Those poor fuckers. How do they ever get enough money to buy a car, register it and insure it? You need halfway decent income for that - but to get that income you need to get to and from a job - and for that you need a car. That is a rough situation.

If you're having stomach problems get tested for h pylori. Seriously. People used to suffer for decades with ulcers. Now, if it turns out you've got h pylori issues - you take rounds of antibiotics and for a brief period you use prilosec. And it's gone. Amazing.

Some toy manufacturer should create a transgender transformer. by Tom_Bombadil in C_S_T

Could be a boring toy.
To be transgender, a man only has to say "I'm a woman", and voila! -- he's a woman. No sex change necessary. No medical treatment needed. Suddenly a free pass to walk into battered women's shelters or women's changing rooms at the gym. Hey, let's let that rapist put in for a transfer to the women's prison because now he says he's a woman. Because...rights! I'm looking forward to the Olympics. I can't wait to see people's reactions as they watch men winning many of the women's medals. Then they can enjoy it even more when their daughter excels in high school track and field but loses a college scholarship to a boy who competes as a girl. Fun times.

Half of Older Americans Have Nothing in Retirement Savings by dcjogger in news

Yeah, it's kind of funny when I listen to people who have pensions talking about how they need to work another 5 years in order to get...blah, blah, blah. And they're sitting on houses that they own outright. And they've got 401k plans, and other investments. They've got it made and really don't realize it.

Its also funny listening to corporate media mouthpieces yapping on and on about how you have to put away such and such an amount of money if you're whatever age in order to have enough money to retire.

And most (not just half, who are we kidding), have less than nothing to retire on. Death is my retirement plan.

And most of us don't have "extra" money to put aside. Recently, when reviewing my budget, I was considering not having a phone at all. At this point, I'm just struggling to keep it together week to week. And I probably don't even realize how good I have it compared to plenty of other people.

N.J. gave 500 undocumented immigrants tuition money. Here’s where they are going to college. by dcjogger in news

This is another example of why people don't open their arms wide to illegal immigrants. Times are hard. People are struggling. Our governments (both state and local) tax us more and more as we get less and less in exchange. This N.J. tuition giveaway is a drop in the bucket compared to the tax dollars spent on our non-stop wars. It's nothing compared to the tax breaks given to multi-national corporations that move jobs out of the U.S. But this N.J. tax giveaway is so stark, it is such a slap in the face to average citizens, that I really have to wonder why it happens?

Maybe its a relatively "cheap" distraction. We get righteously (and rightfully) indignant about it. And while we think about this, we don't think about the non-stop wars and the subsidized multinational corporations, or any of the other ways that these monsters (on both the right and the left) steal from us every day.
