Re: The Insidious Power of Pronoun Discrimination

You just figured that out? ... Objective human meaning is found above Plato's divided line and yes Kant was well aware of it. Yes, there's bigger fish to fry than hassling inbetweeners for being inbetween in a society that demands that people be one thing or the other. I would rather more evidence ...

Re: The Insidious Power of Pronoun Discrimination

Some of the comments here are shockingly ignorant for a philosophy forum. Normal for Facebook and Twitter for people to blather on without knowing ANYTHING at all about what they are talking about, but it's sad and embarrassing on a philosophy forum. All of the research regarding human diversity of...

It's simple: MYOB and don't be deliberately cruel

It's not enough that I leave them be to do with themselves as they like, I also have to agree with them, no matter how outlandish or just plain wrong their self-assessment is, yeah? No, you just have to cut them a little slack for two seconds of your life rather than deliberately undermining them w...

Re: Missionary Killed on Remote Island: Discuss?

For a moment I thought you were talking about eating people alive. lol i guess the way I wrote it was ambiguous. But whatever hardcore Republicans' faults are, cannibalism is not one of them. there has been some discussion of this case at the local diner. a common view is "right idea, poor executio...

Re: Libertarians are supposed to live and let live

Of course the nutjobs can surgically mutilate themselves! However: all the mutilations under the sun won't turn a guy into a girl, and if Joe, in the guise of Josephine, sez otherwise, I'll call HIM a damned fool, liar, and loon to HIS face. Can we agree to disagree NOW? Can't people just be themse...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Greta I've actually been thinking such things for years, just we've been too busy arguing all this time for you to notice or me to explain clearly As I say, the "new humans" are the corporations and we masses are reduced to being the "reacting animal". But why call them human? Nietzsche described t...

Henry, you are not a libertarian

Let people be free to have sex changes if that's what they need without being given attitude and crap from people who are simply paid to provide a service. Not all oppression comes from gummint.

Re: "Do you believe that all transsexualism is insane(?)"

By defintion: yep. # "What if the behaviour is not just a bit of jolly self-destruction done for shits and giggles but a serious disconnect between a person and their gender's expectations?" In other words: what if he's not a shit stirrer but is a crazy person? Offer him treatment (not sex reassign...

Re: Re:

As I see it: none of this has to do with a 'generation gap' and everything to do with 'normalizing' insanity (transgenderism/fluid genderism). The student in the piece is a crazy person or a shit stirrer (cuz he's a guy, not a girl). The prof, rightfully, refuses to play along. Oh yes, I'm sure it ...

Re: Before sliding down the bannister supported by Occam's Razor, wear iron pants.

Occam's Razor is a useful tool if one needs to settle on a proposition to move on in an intellectual exercise. However, its contingent nature should not be forgotten because subsequent propositions built on such premises maybe rest on foundations of sand. Reality is often far more complex and counte...

Re: Missionary Killed on Remote Island: Discuss?

He wasn't doing it for them. He was gathering brownie points for himself. Shame they didn't eat him--alive, except that they aren't cannibals. all lived around people like that all my life - in rural or semi-rural US south. For a moment I thought you were talking about eating people alive. Seriousl...
