Re: Chicago Mayor Is Being Unreasonable

Imagine the uproar if a white public employee refused to grant interviews to black journalists. It would be a little louder than the uproar that greeted Lightfoot's stance back in May. But not much. But here's the thing; white journalists are not a protected minority, because a) they are far from b...

Re: Chicago Mayor Is a Loon

From what I read the mayor is excluding white journalists from exclusive interviews with her. In May, Lightfoot said the one-on-one interviews that mark the two-year anniversary of her inauguration would not be offered to white reporters. So Lightfoot's inauguration happened on a single day in May....

Re: Chicago Mayor Is a Loon

A black mayor only grants exclusive interviews specifically to journalists of color and excludes white journalists. OMG! Manufactured outrage! You have to read that story very carefully to discover that Lightfoot does not exclude white journalists. It isn't happening. It is made up. It is made up b...

Re: '20/'21: not safe for anyone

Is everyone around here brain dead? No, there's only a few like you. And since when did a vaccine not need to be tested and trialed? Why have vaccines historically taken years to be publicly available? Was that just a scam all along? Hmmm ... Three rhetorical questions in search of the ignorant. Wh...

Re: JK Rowling vs. History

Given that it is self-evident that gender is different from race, species, etc. ... That's what people say when they have no argument . It's also what people say when asked to justify something which is self-evident. You are right, it isn't an arguement, but here's the thing: it only works when eve...

Re: JK Rowling vs. History

Here's the center for suicide prevention, which we can be reasonably sure is not motivated by being "anti trans." Check the graphic on the first page, for a glimse. Then go looking around at what other sites say, just to satisfy yourself. https://www.suicideinfo.ca/resource/transgender-people-suici...

Re: JK Rowling vs. History

I think you'll find the rate of suicidal ideation among "trans" types is about 43% before transtion, and actually marginally higher after transition. suicidal ideation among "trans" types is about 43% before transition This is possible but meaningless without the context of a control.

Re: JK Rowling vs. History

The suicide rate before and after "transition" is statistically identical I think you'll find that that is a lie made up by the anti-trans camp.

Re: JK Rowling vs. History

The suicide rate before and after "transition" is statistically identical I think you'll find that that is a lie made up by the anti-trans camp. The evidence that transitioning helps trans people to be happy is very clear. Prove that they're "false" equivalences. Given that it is self-evident that ...

Re: JK Rowling vs. History

... what argument that works (for you) for transsexualism does NOT work for transracialism, or transabilism or transspeciesism? I am not making or defending any "argument for transexualism" in the abstract. All I would say here is that there are people whose path to contentment lies through some ki...

The same way that they are different in other matters. Why do you think that race and gender are the same "in trans matters"?

No running away now.

Re: JK Rowling vs. History

Now it’s your turn.
