Re: ANOTHER TRANNY BASHING THREAD

If the objective facts about a person do not satisfy the objective standards for maleness, is that person a woman? NI Your finger slipped there... The "I" and "O" keys are right next to each other. Perfect! It's settled. Mannie agrees that there are more than two genders. Now go throw a toddler tan...

Re: ANOTHER TRANNY BASHING THREAD

Henceforth, the following acronym: "DTNI." It stands for "done that, not interested." DTNI Hence forth the acronym "Yes" stands for "Yes" and "No" stands for "No". Either of those are shorter responses than "DTNI". If the objective facts about a person do not satisfy the objective standards for mal...

No. The insubstantial cavilling is.

It'll take you less key-strokes answering it, than it will take you justifying dodging it. It doesn't get ANY easier than that.

Yes or No.

Re: ANOTHER TRANNY BASHING THREAD

You'd better re-explain, then. You seemed to be arguing that the standards by which we judge maleness and femaleness are contingent on society's opinions. They're not, obviously. They refer to objective facts. The debate's over what those facts imply , but not over the facts themselves. Red herring...

Re: ANOTHER TRANNY BASHING THREAD

It's not an avoidable question, in this case. If you simply don't know or "don't care" at what point a man can become a woman, then you cannot rationally advocate that people should be allowed to do it. For all you know, and for all the criteria you have in hand, they may well not even be able to. ...

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

seems to me: if I've vaccinated and immunized my kid out the wazoo, then I probably don't have much to worry about if the other kidlets are walkin' around as incubators A small percentage of children are not immunizable for valid medical reasons. If you are the parent of one of those kids, you lite...

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

That sounds like it would take a very long time, not to mention a considerable amount of commitment and effort. Oh yea! It absolutely doesn't scale. And doesn't pay itself forward. If you are going to stick it through, you must care deeply about the other person. And in the end it could still get y...

Re: √5 and Phi

I agree completely. But that's not the definition of computability in the field of computer science. While we are talking about computation and representation (and whether Turing's definition should be THE definition), I think you may find this perspective interesting. Sometimes all functions are c...

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

Your posts reveal sound reasoning, but which do you think has greater weight: sound reasoning or unreasonable fear? The latter. Which is why the former approach (arguing) doesn't work. You can't reason with emotion. First you have to establish trust/rapport and demonstrate yourself as reliable auth...

Re: ANOTHER TRANNY BASHING THREAD

For example, DNA will not change, no matter what we do. If it's profound, a man cannot "need" what a man cannot possibly have, anymore than he can change his DNA. We certainly can't change his DNA Wrong. Wrong. And.... Wrong. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CRISPR_gene_editing You are flogging that d...

Re: What is the highest principle?

Nope. For example: there aren't 52 or 74 or 103 genders. There's just 2. You can create 52 or 74 or 103, but, unless you're writin' fiction or craftin' a thought experiment, it's overkill and hooey, cuz there's only 2 to recognize . Henry, I recognized 8 billion genders. Your recogniser must be bro...

Re: Don’t call me an anti-vaxer

There are no guarantees that a child won’t develop serious complications from being vaccinated either. Besides, I don’t trust the scientists who say the shots are safe. I bet if vaccine safety was crowd sourced it would be obvious that they’re wrong. Have you considered the possibility that the ant...
