I've been referring to my friends as Comrade for decades now and I'm a political moderate.

You know...that whole United We Stand ideology.

Oh no.
People are out there in the Melting Pot who are different.
However will we survive?

Now if we could just keep the populace from breaking into smaller groups of self-identification and just stick to the program....suddenly all wars will cease, free energy will become the norm, food will be healthy and sustainable in all countries and no longer shall man have to labor and toil for the fruits and bounty of the freedoms he so desperately craves.

Because every Red Blooded American Pure Grade Heterosexual has always been about the march of progress. Only us and never anyone else. Those deviants who *gasp* think differently? HOW DARE THEY? Change is scary. SO scary.

Seriously.
The Dark Ages ended for a reason too.

Don't be frightened of Light.

Not all of it burns if you slowly let yourself get used to it.

You are leaving out people who are para or quadriplegic. How dare you sub-divide people with your labels.

Well, I'd just say, "Carbon-based" but what about the "Silicon-based" aliens that have infiltrated our society and are creating an elite ruling system that will soon take over the world and subjigate mankind into slavery for millenia?

I really don't see that people are becoming less accepting of others nor their differences.
What I do see is the media trying to shove that misconception down our throats. The world is a far more accepting place than it was when I was growing up. But it makes for better ratings to keep stirring the pot and paint everyone as racist and bigoted.


I have to agree with you. The only place I see racism, bigotry and evil, to the level of insanity, is the internet and the media.

I live and work in one of the most culturally diverse areas in the country. Among our regular staff, we have people that speak as natives, the top 15 most commonly spoken languages of the world, and many, not so common. We don't make it a habit of speaking about our intimate lives, but we have a large number of employees, friends and neighbors that identify as other than heterosexual, and also indentify as members of our community.

I just don't see the division that the media is pushing. I am not living with my head in the sand. I know that people do what makes for a cohesive and productive community, and as long as no one is in harms way, they tend to the splinter in there own eye. Of course there are personality clashes, battles over border rights and crossings, these happen in the closest and loving of families. But all in all, I don't see the level of division that the internet and the media is pushing.

Until I see it, and feel it in my own heart, I am not buying what they are selling.

It's so simple... If a 10-year old child born with male parts identifies as a girl, and the teacher says, "Boys over here and girls over there", that child is not going to be sure where to go and will likely get scolded if they stand with the girls, which will create embarrassment, shame, guilt and anger. And if they stand with the boys, will feel out of place, "wrong" and angry..


I would like to think that in this day and age that this sort of thing no longer happens like it did to me in the 1960's. It is positively barbaric, damaging, hurtful and embarrassing. By the time I was 12 though, I had fully had enough of this BS and refused to cooperate which only caused disciplinary problems and further social ostraciziation.

Granted, this is for a very small percentage of the population but if you happen to be a part of that small percent, this is a really huge issue that no kid in these modern times should have to deal with.

This is not some new phenomenon or political or social agenda. It's about treating children and people like human beings with compassion, dignity and respect. Hopefully, one of these days our society will be advanced enough to realize this.

Right, we have to take everything to the ultimate extreme every time because ... because!

Just more BS.

(BS = bunny stuff)



More labels, though. Can't get enough of them labels!

Labellabellabellabel

Gotta put everything and everyone in a box!

Are you;
White
Black
Gay
Straight
Tall
Short
Fat
Thin
Pretty
Ugly
Smart
Stupid

Check the box!

CHECK THE BOX!

YOU CANNOT PASS GO UNLESS YOU CHECK THE BOX!!!!!


*madness*

The world has gone completely insane.


I think two things are going on here, and since we can't expect TPTB to ever be up front and honest with us, their clandestine attempts to correct their errors, only creates more problems for us and we are less inclined to trust them. Part of the problem may lie in the numbers. There is an increase in the number of children that may have significant changes in their sex hormone levels. This is a natural occurrence caused by unnatural means.

www.yale.edu...

Another problem is that the only way they can adequately and accurately classify each of us individually, is by identifying us by our exclusionary characteristics. They will have a difficult time indentifying us individually by just looking at males and females. They need more input, more information, so the number of boxes keep getting larger.

They have already told you that they know how to control the human domain. They are now likely looking for a few ATSers, the renegades, the divergents.

I could be wrong now, but I don't think so.

Addressing a classroom as "boys and girls" is on equal footing with fat-shaming somebody?

How about just "children"? "Children, it's time to get in line."


Perfectly fine. What's wrong with "boys and girls it's time to get in line" though?

ETA - I'll also point out the suggested phrase "friends." So what's next? Can't call 'em children because that might give them the idea that they're inferior to an adult somehow. Best to call them something totally neutral. "Alright, sentient beings! Recess is over, time to get in a line near the door, sentient beings! If that's okay with you, that is. As another sentient being, I certainly can't tell you what to do, sentient beings!" I like that more than my earlier suggestion of "comrade."


Not bad, but I vote for Earthling.

That is likely to be short lived. Might work until the first extraterrestrial child is enrolled in school.

"This is a natural occurrence caused by unnatural means"
You are dang right. The average age of menarche in the Western world, especially the US and UK, has lessened by 3 or so years in the last 70 years. Even since I was at that age, kids are developing at younger ages. And I'm sure that this next question will get me drug into the street and shot, but with all the chemicals that has been found to mimic hormones in plastics and other products, I wonder if that hasn't contributed to the seeming increase in gender dysphoria in children under the normal age of sexual development. Being exposed to hormone-like chemicals, and the hormones added to our food supply, is obviously contributing to the increasing instance of precocious puberty. If a child is at a stage is still at a point where they haven't developed much more than a basic sense of self, and they are being exposed to hormones that cue sexual development, couldn't that cause somewhat of an identity crisis.
I'm not saying that homosexuality or anything else in that spectrum is strictly an environmental thing. So don't put those words in my mouth, please. But I do wonder if this could be a thing. Hormones, as I'm sure we all recall, are damn powerful stuff.

I really wish the mods would start a thread clearing up the definition of the word "ban".

The tips you posted are nothing new and are suggestions for teachers who would like to have a more inclusive environment. Separating kids by gender isn't always a negative thing but you guys are acting like it's necessary to do so and the sky will fall if we don't.

These are suggestions I've heard before from many people, rarely from an LGBT source. This is just another excuse for people to get all worked up and paranoid about a "gay agenda".

No ban. No policy. Just advice and tips for teachers who want to run their class this way. I think it's a great list.

See. You just let them know you are a Divergent. At least keep your divergency level a secret.

Don't make it too easy for them. Give other DATSer a little go to ground time and some wiggle room. Make the sysgen work for it.

Considering that there are drugs out there that are powerful hormonal stimulants or hormones in their own right and medications that do not break down when they enter our water supply ... like the pill, is it that far-fetched to assume that kids are being affected or getting mixed signals? Meds that treat baldness will cause kids to develop masculine secondary sex characteristics for example. Do those break down over time or stay put?

Could those be affecting in utero development no matter how clean mothers try to stay since we know that there is epigenetic involvement at times?
