Re: Toxic Gender Philosophy

Interesting analysis. - I wonder if a man who declares his gender is woman, has the brain scan of a woman? Yeah, interesting. I wouldn't be surprised if they did, as it makes sense. Hard to say. On the one hand that sounds like a man tapping the heels of Dorothy's ruby slippers together and wishing...

Re: Got any good jokes?

Stereotypes are ubiquitous (that is, more than young adolescents use them). The problem with stereotypes isn't that they don't have a legitimate source, it's that they only represent a moderate minority of the group they are associated with. There’s a news clip that’s lasted about a week. Two cops ...

Re: Got any good jokes?

AI created images depict how Europeans view inhabitants of all 50 US states. For example: Texas- https://eu-images.contentstack.com/v3/assets/blt949ea8e16e463049/blt7e0d31e05837a4c5/64ae960bd8e27c6912be3414/texas.webp Obviously, AI is at a comparable, young adolescent stage of development ... and i...

Re: What are 'Human' traits that a machine or chatbot, cannot copy online?

Considering the extreme variability in the quality of posts online from humans, AI should be undetectable since no matter what it comes up with there's likely a human who makes similar "errors". Yeah but the quantity of garbage while every AI struggles to be "heard" (in pursuit ...

Re: Toxic Gender Philosophy

I think we all know what life was like for women in the not too distant past. Still, one has to have some sympathy with you Christian Conservatives, having to live in a world full of so many objectionable isms. :cry: Many fail to comprehend that the "good ol' days" weren't all that good f...

Re: I'm straight and tired of gay pride

Your conservative values do not seem to favor the right to Freedom of Expression (a freedom that can be expressed in Gay Pride Parades). Anyone who believes in freedom of speech could not hold your position, even if he or she objected to homosexuality. Cultural rules about sex are a human universal...

The U.S. men don't suck. As I said, they're ranked #11 in the world. They failed to qualify for the WC only once in the last 35 years (Italy failed to qualify last WC, and nobody says they suck). Only Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Italy, France, and England have won WCs post WW2. Does every other nat...

Re: Toxic Gender Philosophy

How is a tiny minority of privileged people supposed to be the topic, and the vast majority not? That's absurd. My focus is fine; yours needs a little tuning, maybe. Uummm... because access to wealth and power is where advantages and disadvantages are more easily seen and felt. But those "priv...

Re: work and play?

Yes -- but why are these particular sports so popular in the U.S? In other countries, soccer (also known as football) is the most popular. Baseball has more games and bigger stadiums, hence bigger crowds. IN my youth it was the most popular sport. It still may be more popular than hoop -- although ...
