Re: Bias Against Transgenders

We are all born the way we're born, there should be no crime in that, as It's beyond our control. And to be punished for it, really? Do all you descender's of difference really feel better making fun of those that are born with no legs, arms, blind, etc, etc, etc? Birth defects, if you really need t...

Re: DIVERSITY IS AMERICA'S GREATEST STRENGTH

In truth, more power sharing within marriage took the place of autocracy. As always, you fail to notice the obvious links between overpopulation and financial inequality and all that you complain about - breakdown of marriage, state controls, loss of prosperity, loss of community. Instead you blame...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

Nick_A Lol, Nick, I think superficiality was always hip and I don't think the world ever had any awareness of the big picture. Some people lean on certain views that rely on absolutes, depending on them for understanding the world and their place in it. Nuance doesn't fit anywhere and so it's easie...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

What are you talking about? I'm not saying you shouldn't defend your beliefs, standing up for your beliefs or refrain from arguing against the people in this thread. I'm not defending any of the individuals in this thread. I'm really referring to this comment: This seems to just be just conservativ...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

As you are aware, all it takes is to make an attempt at fair mindedness rather than failing to question one's intrinsic biases. The irony is thick... Even if others' are as hateful as you claim, shouldn't you at least strive to be better than them? You only stoop to their level and indulge in more ...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

The question then is why the hypocrisy? The answer is obvious. Because these liberals are hypocrites, hypocrisy is considered the norm for getting their way. The ends justify the means. Logic and common sense have nothing to do with it All that matters is how emotional, loud, and obnoxious these pr...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

My comment has nothing to do with any of those things... lol Of course not, you're full of assumption, therefore, deserve nothing less. For you it's either "you're with me or you're against me" and there's no middle ground. All I asked is for you to be a bit more level-headed in your dealings with ...

Re:

No, SoB, that was part of my exchange with Belinda and has/had nuthin' to do with you. Sorry! Then I apologize for being such a dumbass. But it is true, that without a direct quote, and creating a message that immediately follows another's, it is to be understood that it's rebuttal to the immediate...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

From your first post, I've loved you Greta. Why? Because yours is almost always the voice of reason!! ;-) :-* (<-- no worries that kiss was meant for your cheeks, my fellow voice of reason!) Great minds and all that, you know! It's always a breath of fresh air. ;-) The sad thing is that some others...

Re: What could make morality objective?

SpheresofBalance, you are right that I'm not a real atheist but am becoming more Platonic week by week. I call myself an atheist when I talk to some people for whom God is a set of rules. I tend to agree with you here, but go further. No creator of everything, that is all knowing, would entrust kno...

Re: What could make morality objective?

In the attempt to demolish the distinction between facts and opinions - which, paradoxically, demolishes the case for moral objectivism - the following quotation has been offered without critique, as though it's undeniably true. (I omit the shouty graphic emphasis.) 'Unlike deductive arguments, ind...

Re:

"Either you believe that religious doctrine, or you don t understand the nature of absolute Free Will. Or both." I'm an indifferent agnostic (don't know, don't care) and I understand free will perfectly (cuz I am one). You, on the other hand, seem hell-bent to self-diminish, to be less than what yo...
