    It seems the democrats are moving slightly more towards conservative ideology to court potential (only potential) Republican converts. The Republicans aren’t doing the same. If anything they are heading more towards far-right ideologies and not making any slight compromise ideologically. This means everything in American politics is heading…[Read more]

  • I see unseen. So you’re fine with letting trans people be a woman or man in just about every other way but discriminating against trans-people when it comes to sports. What about LGTBQ+ people? Should they be stuck in their own category? A majority of people around the world don’t consider them “natural” men and women. I also fail to see how…[Read more]

  • They’ve undergone hormone therapy (which highly reduces testosterone and raises estrogen). Their numbers are also tiny. It’s not like there has been an avalanche of trans-women (please get that right) standing on all the podiums. As you’ve said before, what’s fair about someone born with a better genetic profile competing against someone with…[Read more]

  • And please be a little more careful with using terms like “artificial woman”.  They aren’t robots created in a laboratory. The term trans-woman communicates the same information without the (admittedly possibly unintended) derogatory connotation.

  • No Unseen. I said there should be the normal league where people play for the gender they identify with (meaning a transwoman plays on the woman’s team). And another league for people who kick up a fuss and cannot handle living in the 21st century.

  • I believe that the following solution is the best one:

    People use the bathroom of the gender they identify with.

    But if a people kick up such a stupid god damn trans-phobic fuss then I think the South Park solution is the second best:

    There are three bathrooms. A male and female bathroom and people can use the bathroom of the gender they…[Read more]

  • Some of it is genuinely narcissistic, patriarchal. Men getting away with control and domination. But sadly some of it comes from genuine (though misplaced) kindness. The belief that women and children are incapable of making smart life decisions, need to be steered in the right direction by capable men and see their job as leading a family of…[Read more]

  • Great to see more about Pluto. Perhaps before Earth sets on fire a few people will be able to escape and settle somewhere…and eventually get around to visiting Pluto. One day. Who knows.

  • Yeah unseen and American law, depending on the state, mandates that maternity leave is paid to a certain extent. So yeah…already there you have the law forcing companies to help women shoulder the responsibility.

    If America had any sense of justice they would follow some European countries and mandate both mothers and fathers have equal m/p…[Read more]

  • What gives a business a duty to help an employee raise children?

    The law…actually. A good one. Or should women forever be burdened with both the expectation to take care of the child AND put their career on hold as well as a fair salary?

  • Unseen you look at things through the eyes of someone trying to justify something unfair instead of seeing obvious valid solutions. Perhaps do as they do in Scandanavia and give equal paterinity and maternity leave? Or should it be both expected for the mother to take care of the child AND to penalise her with her salary AND her slowing…[Read more]

  • Unseen…those aren’t good reasons those are excuses, stereotypes and falsehoods. People who benefit from unfair double standards are always making excuses to justify why others get fewer opportunities than they do. They do it when black people have a hard time getting work and they do it per women all the time. There are documented cases of…[Read more]

  • When Americans stood up to British oppression, it was valiant. It was the founding of a nation.

    When the working class stood up for their rights in the early 20th century it was people taking control of their own destiny

    When women fight for fewer barriers in the work place and less domestic violence and rape…they are pathetic beings with a…[Read more]

    Unseen you know nothing about gender studies except a video you watched about it. It’s ridiculous the conviction you show about what an entire field should do when you are 99.9% ignorant of it. Zheesh

  • Davis replied to the topic Is gender studies a fraud? in the forum Small Talk 2 weeks ago

    Right Simon which is why I said it may take a little while longer for a career to get going…but eventually arts degree graduates have a higher success rate at finding employment.

  • Davis replied to the topic Is gender studies a fraud? in the forum Small Talk 2 weeks ago

    Simon the only contempt towards gender studies degrees comes from alt-right reactionaries. I never came across disrespect at multiple universities I studied in nor amongst intellectual I know in several countries. The disrespect it towards post-modern blow-hards. Not to an entire field of study. Why would anyone reasonably dismiss a valid field of…[Read more]

  • Davis replied to the topic Is gender studies a fraud? in the forum Small Talk 2 weeks ago

    And gender studies like many other liberal arts degrees is akin to having a “piece of paper” for paper sake.

    Graduates of humanities degree have as good or even higher job rate success than those in the sciences or engineering. It may take a little longer to get their career going but there is an enormous diversity of well paying jobs gra…[Read more]
