Yeah but we're not discussing climate change, if we were you'd be correct to dismiss her opinion. In this case were discussing women and transgenderism, she's qualified enough to give her opinion on that. I saw your post and wheelchairs are not comparable unless the following situation is okay with you A Seattle, Wash. community is in uproar after a man undressed in the women’s locker room at a local pool, seemingly to test a new rule that allows transgender people to use the bathroom of their gender identity, according toKing 5 News. An unidentified man wearing board shorts walked into the women’s bathroom of Evans Pool, in the heart of Seattle, on Monday evening. The women inside the locker room at the time attempted to kick him out, but the guy refused and said “the law has changed and I have the right to be here.” The man was referring to a local rule passed in December that mandates all public restrooms to allow transgender people to use bathroom assigned to their gender identity. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nat...oom-test-transgender-ruling-article-1.2535150 All a man has to do is say he's a woman, he doesn't even have to make the effort to put on a dress never mind reassignment surgery. Which brings me to this gem right here "If your idea of a "biological reality" includes the sociological race classifications of the post-slavery US, you are a long way from ever making sense about gender. Rachel Dolezal's identity as a "black" - or "white" - person has nothing to do with biology." Yes race is a biological reality, the social race classifications at the time are a little like the transgender rule of this time in that is a false classification. The racial classification is built on the notion that blacks were not human nor equal to other races. No one is saying that men are not equal to women, no one is saying that a transgender person isn't equal to a woman but everything being equal doesn't make a transgender person a woman anymore than a black person using facilities previously prohibited make them white. I am not making a case about gender, I'm making a case for biology, I would refer you to the initial post I made towards Bells. I asked you to consider the question of whether a little boy in a dress playing with dolls is a girl or a little boy in a dress playing with dolls and you're response is "No, it doesn't" but you don't answer the question (fear I suspect) and you don't give even one example of why that question is wrong but I can guess why. Its not a question of whether Jill Soloway is wrong or not, I said it was disturbing and here's why. She was neither famous before the show and now she is, this is perhaps why she is being treated with more respect and being taken more seriously not because she cut her hair short and wears a man's suit. She doesn't look any less female. The message she is basically sending is that for a woman to be taken seriously she has to present herself as male, so yeah I find that disturbing, especially when she presented as a feminine woman, mother and wife when she created the show and became popular. She was not dismissed nor her idea put on the shelf because she was a female creator. Is she wrong to call herself 'non-binary'? Its nonsense plain and simple. She is not intersex, she's not a male and she is definitely a female, calling herself 'their' or 'them' is just silly and doesn't make her situation a reality anymore than calling herself a pony. Why is the woman who de-transitioned crazy? Why are you dismissing her story? She doesn't sound crazy at all she sounds honest. I would posit that de-transitioning is no crazier than transitioning to begin with except in her de-transitioning she has to live with the permanent changes made to her body through HRT and surgery.
