:thumbsup:

Henry did you go to the Trump rally in Lousanna ?

I watched it live on TV. Trump was in good form, as usual.

He said that Louisiana has the highest murder rate in America !!!!

Is that true? And if it is, how come Lousanna is so violent ??

Re: Gender Essentialism

The “Great Chain of Being” provides a vertical skeleton of the process of existence I am invited to fill in. It connects “No-thing” with “every-thing; wholeness with its parts. No-thing is pure conscious potential beyond time and space within which levels of reality, one level within the other, can...

Re: Gender Essentialism

. After all, it used to be the case that a difference between women and men was that women were ineligible to vote, but these things change.

Re: Gender Essentialism

Nick, If you do it will make it much easier for me to describe what I believe to be the difference between a normal adaptive cycle of life you described which seems the dominant focus of this thread and the conscious change or evolution of "being" Paul speaks of in 1 Corinthians 15 in which a lower...

Re: Gender Essentialism

When a caterpillar becomes a moth, has its essence changed? Nick, (NB: Before I start...IC uses the term "ESSENCE", I prefer to use the ontological synonym "SUBSTANCE") OK...Suppose when your mother was pregnant with you, she had her obstetrician produce an image of you in the womb as a 4 week -old...

Re: Hate Unlimited

... If you do, you're wrong. So why, in your opinion, did the the US/UK prosecute the Gulf War ? ... For the US? 1. Because Iraq was getting too chummy with the Russians as they were beginning to understand the value of American promises, ask the Kurds about this. 2. Because Iraq attacked the oil c...

Re: Dachshund

I'm going to quote a line from the show "Everybody Loves Raymond," said by Robert, when his mother asks if he'd like her to tell him the facts of life. He says, "Well, I would : but I wouldn't know what to do with all the vomit." :wink: Dear IC, On a more serious note, this brings to mind a reflect...

Re: Dachshund

I'd be a pissed off, mutilated man , and there'd be hell to pay. Tom Selleck in a dress...does anybody think that would be a woman? :shock: I think you underestimate Henry's potential, IC.

We agree on this: men and wonen are men and women (there are intrinsic qualities unique to each, that define each, and these qualities are immutable) Henry, Suppose , just for arguments sake that you were kidnapped by a mad psychiatrist, and this psychiatrist surgically castrated you and then injec...

You meet a nice girl, get along well with her, bed her, and then, after the fact, she tells you she is or was a man.

What do you do?

Take two 5mg Valium, then wash them down with a large slug of whisky.

Re: Gender Essentialism

That begs the question. Is a "man with some stuff chopped off" a woman, or is he just a "man with some stuff chopped off"? We can't say it's become "possible" just because Bruce declares he's now Caitlin. It's more likely that it's NOT possible, but he wants us to declare it's happened when it hasn...

Re: Gender Essentialism

I assure you that as a 'skeptic' who participates in many groups, my own arguments are extremely unwelcomed because the vast majority of the women in these groups are strong feminists who DO believe that you should 'ghost' those who disagree. This is interesting to me. Since many, maybe even most p...

Re: Gender Essentialism

The masculine is the driver. The feminine is the vehicle. Another straightforward and bold answer. Thank you. And another vote for the "uniqueness" view.
