Perhaps you have never had your IQ officially tested, but it's directly based on education.

Actually, IQ is highly heritable. Some kids may have been exposed to more educational material earlier and that probably helps, but it follows, that by adulthood the naturally intelligent and highly gifted will overtake any early exposure or edge that can be taught through education alone.

Creepy. Whatever is happening in the neovagina is not what is happening during menses. I guess I’ve never asked men what men think of women’s periods. I’m curious now given this TiM describes menstruation as a mystical and special thing (but with obstacles). Normally, I think women consider menstruation as a burden or an irritation? Personally I see menstruation as another part of who I am. Not that it’s a burden or an annoyance, but a fact of my life.

It's a distraction from the mass surveillance isn't it? As the govt. strips us of our liberties, maybe they think fewer people will notice if they're too bogged down in trans madness.

I also don't think the Culture Wars are a distraction anymore. I think the Culture Wars were certainly a distraction before, but at this point, we have useful idiot soldiers mindlessly destroying everything.

"Has anyone called Harry (Mermaid supporter!) and Meghan (Mermaid!) transphobic yet for assuming their new baby is female before she’s announced her pronouns?" by BEB in GenderCritical

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

Diana dove right in and was a workhorse, who had some remarkable achievements, such as changing the public's attitude towards people with AIDs. She saved lives and exuded glamor, humor and charm while doing it. Kate seems limp and lazy in contrast.

Is there a job expectation that Kate do this? I know Kate does have a charity focusing on children and women. I tend to think it's not fair to hold Kate to Diana's standard (I am indifferent about Diana) and also Diana can immediately jump in when she's been born into the same aristocratic world. Kate, while bourgeoise, was not born and bred aristocracy.

I think she does love William in her own way, but if he'd been an accountant she wouldn't have looked at him. William seems petulant and arrogant, so she probably doesn't have an easy life with him.

Personally, I think that William and Kate have a good marriage and seem to love each other. I don't consider William to be petulant nor arrogant but tend to ascribe those traits to Harry. Because this is subjective, it is a matter of interpretation.

I largely do not care about the interpersonal drama of the royals but because I'm American, I have disdain for Meghan and her behavior when it badly reflects on Americans.

Interesting. I don’t know much about Kate’s parents. I don’t think Kate is all that conniving, and I wouldn’t call her useless. I definitely wouldn’t prefer Meghan’s Californian sjw stereotype. I don’t want the shallow, self-absorbed, attention seeking superficial personality. Maybe the Middleton’s wanted the title to anoint their bourgeois status, but I don’t think Diana loved Charles either. I think there will always be a fatal flaw when looking at a woman who married royal because of jealously. I personally am not jealous and don’t want to be royal and think Kate performs her job well. I like that Kate keeps quiet, is classy and knows how to perform— that’s the job and she performs to expectations. Meghan is off script and disrespectful. I don’t give Meghan deference because of it.

I like Kate, she’s a commoner, fits in, and is classy. No commoner who marries a royal did not want that or pine for that. Whether Kate had an image of William at 13 or Meghan stalked famous British people to marry them, it doesn’t matter to me.

I don’t believe her on the suicide bit. She wants attention. That’s what I know from my personal knowledge. Your situation is not the same and mine may not be either.

In a Senate compromise, Samuels was appointed for a 6 mos term, but I think she can extend that term for an additional 6 months. I won’t get into the details of how that extension works, but consider her there for a year.

The president is the one who appoints the head of agencies. The agencies are considered a part of the executive branch. Biden's move is not aytypical. If the vice chair is a pro-trans lobbyist, then there is a problem. The people within the agencies are usually non-partisan and care about the agency.

Eh, this was one of my first thoughts, too, but the EEOC is ultra-liberal and may even sweep these types of legitimate complaints under the rug using "administrative discretion" (that they don't have).

Can't know until someone tries. I don't think the EEOC is all that biased because the law itself is not biased. They don't really have administrative discretion unless you mean whether to prosecute or not. They'll investigate and warn at least. But hostile workplace lawsuits from private attorneys would work too.

I don’t understand how these people think the dating pool will be larger if they sex transition. Common sense, when applied, would mean that this would make your dating pool smaller.

I don't know about that. It's not professional or responsible of a daycare teacher or worker to talk to kids or toddlers about a medical transition to the opposite sex. I agree on the part of the parents and that you can't protect your kids from everything, but that doesn't mean people in certain roles should not be the gatekeepers. They are the gatekeepers and their sole job is to protect children. Telling unproven nonesense to children is irresponsible.

You simply can't change your gender. You will always be a girl or boy that got a sex change.

Agree. This is almost like modern Cartesian dualism, which is stupid because the mind and body are one. I don't understand why people's heads feel divorced from their body and visa versa. Maybe I'm lucky to have never had this problem. We are many things that makeup the one, single person who we are. People need to recognize that or they will always be running away, searching for a holy grail, or wishing for something external that probably will not manifest to bring them validation. People need to learn acceptance of their body and then focus on growing their mind and becoming better people.

It makes them look like wannabes. Being a man trapped in a woman's body makes you look like a loser.

Totally. It's performative and based on stereotypes. It makes me cringe. If people want to pretend and act that they are something else, that's a sign of someone insecure. You don't want to play pretend if you are happy and comfortable with who you are as a person. I wish people would get comfortable in their own skin, but I guess it's easier nowadays to look for an escape. It's really sad if you think about it.

can I ask my employee to remove his pronouns from his email signature, and more — Ask a Manager by jjdub7 in GenderCritical

Terrible managerial advice.

Here's better advice (not legal advice and adopt as pertinent): Yep, you can ask your employee to remove his pronouns from his email signature if this involves a private company and not a public institution. Crafting a signature policy standard and adding this to the employee handbook where employees sign off on the changes to that handbook would be a good idea to prevent this from happening in the future.

Accommodating Trans Athletes Without Rejecting the Reality of Human Biology by Rationalmind in GenderCritical

Agree, that's why I thought the author's suggestion for opening men's sports, not women's sports, to trans athletes was an acceptable solution. The author of the piece I posted is an evolutionary biologist and managing editor for Quillette.

Same. The woke ideology is also at the graduate level.

If parents are pushing this on their kids then I can't see it as anything but child abuse or Munchausen's syndrome by proxy.

US conservative women are out fighting for women's rights, why aren't we? by BEB in GenderCritical

Never because the media is agenda-driven propaganda. If the story doesn't fit the approved narrative, it doesn't get airtime. It's not news when it has an ideological agenda it needs to play.

Are you talking about gcwomen? I think it's hard because there are so few of us and we also have responsibilities in our lives. There should be a lot more women on the left pushing back against this ideology, but I have no idea how to even start to unbrainwash the women on the left. The women on the left legitimately do not see the trans problem because they are largely wealthy and elitist, and so do not identify or see the threat of a battered woman in a womens shelter being housed with TiMs. The majority of young women have not participated in a sport that involved a transwoman and they've been brainwashed by the school system to believe this is a civil rights issue. I wish we could wake the left, but I don't see how. I've been working on people in my life very slowly and it's a lot of planting seeds.

I mean yea, but the thing is that universities, for years, have been brainwashing their students to believe that social loafers or deviants are not a big issue because most people are honest. I was taught this in the context of the "welfare queen" and the university disputing it. Professors tell students this situation is so rare, but used by conservatives to scapegoat people that you start to believe that there are only a few bad apples in any given situation and that social loafers or predators are not as big of an issue as some politicians make them seem. I think what universities are pushing is a dangerous redefinition of personal boundaries in favor of some propaganda agenda.

Oh yea, I totally agree. Harry Styles in a dress is weird. In practice I don’t really approve of celebrating aberrant behavior. In theory, I don’t mind, but I won’t be celebrating Harry Styles in a dress. It’s not brave imo, it is just weird.

Thank you! Yes, I did know that most of the TiM’s don’t get sex reassignment surgery. I figured it still applies if someone has to take hormones to claim civil rights.

Affirmative action. Universities skirt the rules for admissions blatantly. Heads up in case you don’t know— universities are indoctrination centers. Stay strong, and don’t get corrupted.

Agree about the culture bit that you pointed out. It’s a good point. I wonder, however, whether then men could argue that women should not wear pants because we typically wore dresses? It should be fair in terms of drawing a line around our boundaries. Personally, I do not care whether men wear dresses. I care when men try to pretend they are women. Drag is an exaggeration on womanhood and I am fairly conflicted about this. I find it offensive when they use “fishy” or the b or c-words because they are jokes at the expense of women.

Sorry that others are invalidating your perspective because they are speaking up for others (some black feminists) offensiveness and not speaking from their own viewpoint. Reasonable minds can differ, and those minds can speak up directly if they feel offended for themselves.

Well yes, drag is appropriating womanhood and femininity and making fun of women. It is the same as blackface. Although, I disagree that women are the only ones permitted to wear dresses. To me, anyone can participate in femininity, however, only women can participate in womanhood.
