    As far as that case goes I'm fine with a man saying that she is now a woman. I understand that doesn't make sense for some people but personally, I'm fine with them purchasing a lady's swim at the pool. I'd like to see a gender dysphoria diagnosis for a passport change too. Nothing too arduous if that's what you want but at least something. Maybe get it down to xy or xx and you can then identify as a xx or xy male or female. Preserve the scientific but leave the option for identity.

    unfortunately, the UK establishment has gone a bit crazy on that point. Maya Forstater: Woman loses tribunal over transgender tweets last year, there was a bit of a backlash against J.K.Rowling for her #istandwithmaya tweet. if you read the full judgement it all began with: On 2 September 2018 the Claimant tweeted about the GRA stating; “UK gov consultation on reforming the #GenderRecognitionAct - proposes to dramatically change scope of the law; from requiring medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria for change of sex on birth certificate, to using the basis of 'self identification' … another thing that is apparent from all the collated evidence, and far less apparent than in the BBC article linked above, is that at many times she took pains to clarify that in ordinary day to day life she is in agreement with what you said above: "I'm happy to give people what ever gender title they like because it's no skin off my nose to make them a little more comfortable in their every day lives." i dont know everything she has said on the topic, and dont agree with everything i've read from her. i cant go full #istandwithmaya since it seems she became less careful with her words and/or may have lost the plot as time went on and she became embroiled in heated arguments. however, i do think there are serious issues with enshrining non-scientific self-identified classifications into official records and processes, and i do not agree with the judgement.

    Informed consent. You may have noticed it's also a bit of a thing amongst left leaning people. For some it's to the point you nearly need a written contract to have sex. And it is generally agreed a child can't give informed consent. Also, as far as gender being fluid, well that is, as you point out, all in the head. I don't know many people who think their actual biological gender changes like that. It's more about how you feel about it. I personally feel a healthy way to live is just be a person who has a gender and stop worrying about whether your feelings are male or female and just act how you want but it's never been a thing for me and I'm happy to give people what ever gender title they like because it's no skin off my nose to make them a little more comfortable in their every day lives.
  7. Dunno about completely different but they did try to pass a wave of common sense over "rights." Whether they succeeded, well, it is a pretty honest document in the main - guns aside but of course that in itself is an amendment. Cheers

    There's a lawyer person in WA who I'd cheerfully go al " Cory " on. Telling some court that a man abused sexually by a number of priests was not due a high level of compensation cos he wouldn't have 'amounted " to much in his life anyway ... https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-21/letter-admits-christian-brothers-sexual-abuse-on-eve-of-trial/11887018 " But a lawyer for the organisation has argued he deserves a lower compensation payout than what his lawyers have sought because his poor upbringing meant he had a low earning capacity, regardless of the abuse.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-22/andrew-constance-attacks-red-cross-for-bushfire-donation-delays/11890538 " The Australian Red Cross has received $95 million to date and today announced they have allocated $30 million to victims. A spokesperson said the organisation has paid out 559 grants but has 1,492 open applications. St Vincent De Paul has raised $12.5 million and spent close to $1.1 million through financial packages for eligible households. Since the Salvation Army's bushfire appeal began in November, $43 million has been pledged and $11 million has been received. From September to now, $7.6 million worth of goods and cash relief has been distributed. " For organisations whose sole purpose in life is to help those in need, this is all just too bloody slow. Shit has been hurting some folks since November last year . Shameful

    Good point about the ether and dark matter. Surely you've recovered from the giant hail?

    Ether should be reused for dark matter. Though it'd help to have an understanding of it first, which is sort of unlikely for a while. Food science is too agenda driven, but it's not the only one.

    You know scientist were once wholey convinced that the luminiferous ether was a real thing. They were wrong, and none of them held onto that old theory long. The ice age hypothesis was wrong too. It was also never universally accepted in the same way as ether was, but was ceased upon by pop-sci types, of which a geat many school science teachers are - particularly in the lower grades. If you're desperate to find 'scientists' (they're often not) being flagrently wrong, and very frequently too, look to nutritionist.

    Be quiet commie. When we need you we’ll dig a mass grave. What stops the identification of pedophilia being changed from criminal to “sexual preference”? Pederasty was practised for Millenia (if not longer) and was a natural part of human sexual activity. I mean... let’s face it. Your belief that “gender is fluid” now trumps biological reality. What’s next?

    It's all part of "progress". Next up, marriage to animals becomes legal. Followed by decriminilization of paedophillia.

    Is a religious text, which inherits ftom the Christian Bible in a similar way that the Bible inherits from Jewish scriptures. It is not a "non-Biblical" source just by dint of a name change and some extra material. What I think you'll find he meant is secular sources like: Roman census records (they were supposed to be taking one at the puted birth, no?); or notes from one of the many competant astronomers around ar the time about the weird light in the sky; or law-enforcement records of the fecking zombie invasion! If that last line doesn't do it for you, you really are lost.
