Re: Abortion & Radical Feminism

So, the way you are wording the questions begs the question as to whether you are talking about morality or legality. I can easily see a radical feminist having a moral dilemma about the life of a potential child and being 'anti-abortion' - as in let's do everything we can to make sure that an unint...

Re: Why can't human beings change sex?

Just as a point of clarity and also to ask other's opinions, do you approve of trans-women athletes competing as women in competitions? The reason I ask is because I think this is one of the more illustrative points of the whole 'can't change sex' debates. We have all probably seen the news stories ...

Having not been a member of the old forum and having joined this forum in order to learn more about the topics presented in Tat's presentation of it, I must say this has become an interesting journey. I am not a novice at forums and have seen plenty of trolling. Never have I seen such succinct troll...

Gender identity disorder is no different from regular body dysmorphic disorder, and very few people would argue that people who have BDD should be able to freely undergo plastic surgery to ease their mental pain. I don't think that all gender identity issues are the same as body dysmorphic disorder...

I'm not saying that no one ever submits to these procedures because they've been misguided as to what gives them worth, etc. etc. I'm just saying that I do not believe that every single one is such a case. I don't understand painting people with so broad a brush. I don't think every choice to is su...

To be very clear, I don't seek to dissuade anyone from pursuing the choices they wish to make. As long as they are adults and as long as what they are pursuing does not infringe on the rights of others. I mean, who cares what I think -right? I have no arrogance about it. This is a forum where we sha...

Things written in our DNA in regards to things like sex and race are immutable. We are born XX or XY (or sometimes XXX or XXXY etc, not to leave out all those mutations...). This is science and it is 'hard' as in not gonna change just because we don't like it. What gets me is that the very same peop...

<t>The pronoun thing is so annoying to me. I am so glad that Tat has mentioned it. I mean it is already pretty difficult for me to differentiate the sex of certain people I see so that I have to get creative in how to reference them in a polite way. I was brought up to say 'sir' or 'ma'am' and those...

Yes. Let's hear it for letting people be people. These strips are really on point with how I feel about all the little exclusive 'groups' that are being established just to lock us into what someone else says we should be. And the pronoun thing... as if it isn't already hard not to offend some peopl...

Okay, not to beat a dead horse but this really has me thinking and I would like to know what other opinions are. What about animated porn? There is absolutely no 'live' subject, but there certainly versions out there right now that depict every kind of pornography. And what about digital imagery. Th...

Thanks October. That framed things perfectly. Morathar's question made me think about this. Is there a difference between porn and erotica. I guess more specifically, images as a photo or video and what is written. The key difference is that an actual person is involved in images and only imaginatio...

havocsmom, that is an interesting thought. My childhood was completely devoid of knowledge of parental intimacy. In fact my mother was so private in this regard I have never seen her naked. That definitely made me curious and turned even simple nudity into something taboo. Of course then there is th...

I think you are right about rebellion against a conservative upbringing fueling plenty of porn and prostitution. Unfortunately I think that early exposure also fuels the addiction. A brain that is still forming can be warped around some very harmful stuff. That might be more likely in a home that do...

There certainly is still a great deal we do not know about the human psyche, factors that cannot yet be quantified and which may never be fully understood. We cannot see what another thinks. We only see what they do. And what they do will always matter more than what they think or say. We get encul...
