    there's more than a few of us that are in a non traditional gendered state, and yeah you probably offended a good portion of us.

    Actually, that's about maybe 2-3% of rthe population, if you include actual gay people.

    Somehow, that sounds like it cannot possibly not be insulting. But I don't have a clue who of.


  • I survived the hour long Uno hand

    Gay isn't a gender, it's a sexuality.

    Gender is gender, sexuality is sexuality. they are two different concepts that while there is strong correlation between them are not the same thing.

    :rolleyes:

    If more people would be comfortable with the genitalia they had, the world would be a much simpler place.


  • The Cold Doesn't Bother Us Anyway

    :-P

    I fail to see how someone's crotch giblets should have influence over who they is, though enough have issue with things either personally or due to other's self picked category that apparently I'm abnormal for that.


  • BINNED

    hmm I looked it up too, non-binary is the term used :wtf:. No problem with what people want to identify as (seriously non of my fucking business), but gender-studies should at least stick to Latin words like medicine and leave CS alone. Next someone wants to sort me in a red-black tree. Doctors use Latin to sound important, and if this has something to do with anatomy (or physiology) the moron who first invented the word should have done the same.

    BINARY IS AN ANGLICIZED LATIN WORD YOU IDIOT.

    And it's not just used in CS.



  • @FrostCat said:

    I've read this when you posted. I've re-read this when @Yamikuronue quoted you.

    But only when @accalia quoted you did I notice the 'rthe' typo.

    It looks like I'm confirmation-biased D-:

    Also, android's stock browser crashed 3 times while I composed this post. How can you get that wrong? :wtf:

    Other people have torn you apart for assuming sexuality has anything to do with gender state, but I would also like to point out that estimates of how many people are gay vary heavily depending on the questionnaire format. Specifically, to get as low as 2-3% requires people being asked face to face, a situation where many people who aren't ready to come out or live in an area where being gay is frowned upon are going to claim straightness. Other estimates are 10% plus

    Like... fluid? What CS concept uses that word?

    Or are you referring to binary, which is a Latin word?

    God should have made it so that our mating logic had things like keyed plugs on it, so that it could only get wired up one way. :stuck_out_tongue:

    Why not both?


  • BINNED

    right, but from what I remember from biology classes something with bis or bi is more like the medical jargon.
    Similar to bisexual this could be bigender (?)



  • Bi means both. Binary means one or the other. Not really helping your case are you

    You're stumbling upon the feminism vs. transgendered intersectionality paradox.

    You can't claim transgendered if there aren't any gender roles.

    But, if gender roles are derived from physical properties due to evolution, instead of social properties due to upbringing, then you can have transgendered people.

    The fact that feminism is desperate to stay alive, and invent intersectionality while trying to sweep the paradox under the rug, shows how hypocritical they really are.

    TIL The people that shout ____ist the most, are usually the ones that are ____ist.

    @Zecc said:

    Some people aren't comfortable having thumbs, so they seek for the right to have surgery to chop them off. We say these people have a mental disease and need help.

    Some people aren't comfortable in their minds; they don't like mental stimulation and so they bash their head against a wall until it bleeds in order to get the signal to stop.

    At some point you're going to say, "No, you shouldn't do that to yourself".

    I'm not talking to the transgendered people, I'm just saying that you shouldn't be comfortable with everything a person does that doesn't harm others. At some point you have to give a damn about another person's health.


    @blakeyrat said:

    The terminology sounds silly because the person is rejecting the notion's behind it.

    Terminology usually doesn't matter all that much. We have weird names for some animals.


    @tarunik said:

    The problem is internal wiring.

    Look, there are mental problems that I have that I wouldn't want to change about myself, because I'm now comfortable with it. Some people would want me to change them.

    Example: Not wanting to be around large crowds.

    I know there are advantages and disadvantages to whatever the hell is wrong with me. So, the way I look at it. These people have obvious mental or biological problems, but they are comfortable with it now. I know what I believe God has said about some of them, and I take this approach.

    If you ask me what I believe, I will warn you, and if persistently asked, I will talk about it.
    If you start a topic about it, I will warn that I have certain beliefs. I will only talk about it if people insinuate that they are misinterpreted or the can of worms is already open.

    Otherwise, in day to day life, I keep it to myself.

    I feel that this is a fair compromise that protects my religious rights, and the comfort level of others.

    And, what I've said in this post, can be interpreted as for or against homosexuality, so don't get your panties tied up.

    So....

    God made more universal standards?

    Because I have no problem connecting to an Asian female.

    It's humans that have to change standards so that we're nationally incompatible. National-ists?



  • @xaade said:

    Mine doesn't reach that far. I'd have trouble reaching a Canadian female. Even a Milwaukee female would be a stretch.



  • @ben_lubar said:

    blink

    I don't have that problem.



  • @xaade said:

    Right, and you'll be in full right to do so. It's not about you, your opinion and what and to whom you say. It's about how much shit people are forced to give about what you say.

    It doesn't matter whether you, me or some other guy deems gender-bending stupid,as long as people can do those stupid things.



  • @ben_lubar said:

    If your female starts to stretch, you should probably let off some air.



  • @Maciejasjmj said:

    It's not about you, your opinion and what and to whom you say. It's about how much shit people are forced to give about what you say.

    I find this funny, because given other mental/biology deviations from the norm, people would say something entirely different.

    The only difference is whether we agree, as a society, on whether the person is harming themselves.

    My statement was more directed to the fact that people say, "They aren't harming others, so it doesn't matter." And that statement is simply not true.

    What they should be saying is, "I don't believe they are harming themselves." Which, of course, is entirely subjective.

    EDIT:

    On reflection, there are people that would say "they aren't harming others, so it doesn't matter" and truly mean it.

    I don't think this is common enough to alter my previous statements.

    I could be wrong.



  • But it doesn't matter.

    You can't go around banning things you personally don't like. That's like, basic rule of freedom. Rule number one.



  • @xaade said:

    Do you think that all those heterosexual people waving rainbow flags around find the concept of two guys going intimate any less squicky than you or me?

    I personally find it bloody disgusting. But it's not my problem.



  • @Maciejasjmj said:

    You can't go around banning things you personally don't like.

    I don't.

    I just find somethings morally wrong, but I don't ban them, because you can't legislate morality. You have to let people make mistakes.

    @Maciejasjmj said:

    I personally find it bloody disgusting. But it's not my problem.

    There is at least one person in an mental institute that is completely harmless. And is only harmful to themselves.

    Again, we don't as a society completely ignore "harm to self" as a reason apply restriction to rights.

    There are people that would say, people should have a right to suicide. But the majority of people don't think that.

    So, "doesn't harm other people" isn't the be-all to determine whether something should be illegal.

    The idea of consent revolves totally around someone "harming themselves" especially for under-age people. They can't consent to whatever the action is, because they can't determine the harm they are about to cause themselves.

    Yet the politicians manage to ban things they don't like. For example, cash payment in Scandinavia (can't remember which of the three countries exactly does this; I think Norway).

    @xaade said:

    Sure you can. Murders are banned in (almost?) all civilized countries.



  • @HardwareGeek said:

    Well, some people like big butts, some don't. A matter of taste.

    (the first kind is generally more trustworthy)

    @xaade said:

    Cite your shit? If the person has a reasonable cause to off themselves (say, a crippling and painful terminal illness), there's a lit of support for that.

    @xaade said:

    under-age people

    Which we generally assume can't decide for themselves. Whether it's a reasonable assumption or not is another matter, but for the sake of this discussion it's totally irrelevant.

    @Gaska said:

    Yet the politicians manage to ban things they don't like.

    When did "it's totally wrong to do that" ever stop anybody, much less politicians?



  • @Maciejasjmj said:

    Verily, what thou hast done hath been observéd.

    That's not morality, that's rights.
    Morality encompasses more than just outcome based ethics.
