Topics like these that have had an alarming increase over the past month, just makes America even more embarrassing than it already is... if that's even possible.

Yes I'm aware of the irony here but all I see are threads about the subject and to be perfectly honest its driving me insane, apart from being interested if Michele is in fact Michael I could not really give a rats ass for it but its like an evil plague all over ATS. I don't have anything against the people liking it or the people hating it its purely that its about the only thing being discussed and with the plight of he world now I find it hard to think there's nothing more pressing or indeed INTERESTING to talk about.

Obviously the issue is being pressed in to main stream for an agenda but digging past news dominated by TG threads and seeing threads suddenly go off topic to fit in TG'ism in to a non related debate seems the norm at the moment and its DAMN annoying. Seems to me that no matter what is being discussed someone has an agenda or simply a stupid gene that tries to force TG in to a thread.

I just want the MODS to integrate the NUMEROUS threads in to a select few so those of us who like a broad slice of ATS do not need to wade knee deep in removed genitalia to find something more interesting..

Yeah, that's it....Short but sweet...

And just in case, this is a RANT, not a discussion, I have said my bit, I'm not here to defend my views or be patronised about how it should be important to me, I'd rather have a bad case of the runs than discuss it more..

Nighty night...


I could not agree with you more. Ive been a silent non member ats follower for years now. This whole transgender topic is the only reason I have signed up. Seriously it is disgusting, over 70% of the posts i see on my mobile app for this site are about this very topic. This will be my first, and last message I ever post to this site. Its becoming ridiculous, id rather spend my time now on before its news with all the doom and gloom religious zeolots, then waste another second here reading a ton of different posts about the same subject. When has this ever, besides the whole hilary trump debate, been acceptable and the mods haven't taken care of it. Can a single brainless mod please explain to me how bruce/caitlyn jenners transgender change is either above or top secret??? For shame this is what this site has become. At least coast 2 coast and other sites talk and discuss other items, or at least give me fun topics to ponder. What a shame. As a long long time follower but never a member of this site I am bummed i will have to move along and find another site more worthy of at least interesring posts and my time. There are so many wonderful contributors to this site yet this is what you let domimate. This is a shame what you mods are allowing the feeble minded to continually post here with the same old transgender rhetoric, just packaged in a different title. I bid you all a good farewell and feel sorry for other long time members who truly enjoyed thought provoking ideas, for shame even the likes of david ike had to be subjected to now a totally defunct site. Fare thee well fellow thinkers.

One thing I think I have learned about transgender problems for people is that if you leave changing too late or are in the unfortunate position of only recently having had the chance but you are well into your 40's and older, its that people are use to you how you are and with Caitlin Jenner, however beautiful cosmetic surgery has attempted to make one, people still see you in their mind's eye as you were. I looked at a picture of Caitlin on another thread here but all I truly saw was Bruce. I can't help feeling terribly sorry for people where nature has made them different.

We all want to fit in and be accepted for who we are but sometimes we don't get that chance, either because of our own mistakes or something forced upon us without our choice.

As my sig say I rarely return to any topic, I'm not here for to be noticed nor crave votes flags or any of that stuff, I merely like to speak my mind and join in with people who I think take common sense and are nice people. So it was quite remarkable to me to see 4 pages of comments over what I called a mini rant.

I'm truly glad it gave people something to talk about and its nice that the common consensus was that people agreed.

As for people who feel they will be seen as bigots for not agreeing with this rather strange agenda being pushed, DON'T, be yourself, its exactly what they don't want you to be these days, know your mind, speak your mind, pointing out stupidity and wrong doing is NEVER wrong..ever...


PS, loved the JFK / Obama photo, utterly on the button of today's disorientating agenda...

Thank you for that wonderful JFK /Obama pic, I cried with laughter, its so ironic in so many ways, thank you so much...

More first world problems. I mean where the hell did transgendered folks pee before this became the biggest news story of the year. I assume they peed somewhere and no one gave a hoot. I'm still trying to work out the big deal, but there are some on ats who hate everything that isn't conservative Christian in origin. A bit like the moral police you find in hardline Islamic states

I'm worried the whole argument will begin making its way here to Aus. I know many women who don't want this to happen, the thought of men masquerading as women entering otherwise women's (sex people, NOT GENDER) space is something that legitimately scared them.

Why should women be scared of men? Bit sexist don't you think? Most of us can control ourselves around women

Feeling sick to death of people talking about it is nothing compared to how sick to death trans people are of the endless insults and abuse and violence directed at them.

Just look at some of the comments in this thread from people who say stuff like 'I'm not transphobic, but here I am saying something screamingly transphobic!'

Trans people are just people. They deserve to be treated equally.

I had people bully me all throughout high school. Life is hard it's suppose to be. I was bullied for many years. I'm glad I was because it turned me into a great person. What I'm saying is where do we draw the line and say big deal and get on with the show? People get teased all the time I'm not sure when this world became so sensitive and how everyone became suddenly entitled to everything. This life is dang deal with it that's life. we can't go screaming about something every time we don't get our way.
Trannys wanna use the bathroom they identify by I'm sure gays do too. I would like to take a dump on a heated toilet seat every time I go to the bathroom. I'm not entitled to those rights and neither are they. No matter which way you put it or rationalize it men and women are meant to reproduce and keep this world going through evolution. Why would a species back track and do something that is clearly not beneficial to their evolution and survival? These are all questions I seem to ask. This is just my opinion and thoughts on things not a statement! I'm am not a homophobe at all I honestly believe that you should just live your life no matter what you are. But I think when you start discussing these things it's hard not to state the facts and have a strong opinion about it. Either way. Let them use whatever bathroom if they can't play nice then it's back to using whichever bathroom is on your birth certificate.

I agree...the entire topic is sorta just shoved down ones pun intended.......A conversation in a fox hole in the not to distant future. " Damn nice set of tar-tars you got there Tim" Thanks, Joan, is that a extra mag in your pocket or are you happy I'm here" It's getting to the point of absurd & just damn stupid.

All this cause of bathrooms. It's been going on for weeks now. I don't know why they just didn't finish the argument and say bathrooms are designated by chromosomes. XX in one and XY in another, yes I know there are rare people that have extra ones but then we just let them use what ever one they have them come XYX would just go in XY and XXXX would just go in XX.

I saw this today.. just to keep on topic

I am not really overly focused on US politics .. but i remember seeing a discussion of bathrooms lol

Absolutely pathetic.

The motto of this website is DENY ignorance, not wrap yourself up in it like a security blanket.

The argument IS finished. People will be able to go to the bathroom of their affirmed gender. Oh, it's gonna be debated some more and some will whine and cry about it (if you'll notice, 99% of the threads started on this subject were anti-transgender), but just like gay marriage, the law will end up on the side of non-discrimination. Then everyone who was against it will eventually settle down and life will go on as usual.

Yeah, and a bunch of people were sick to death of the "Abolitionist" topics in the papers circa 1860. The folks who are on the wrong side of history always grow tired of constantly reading about how the are wrong.

I don't mind the pervasiveness of threads. Obviously there's a lot of ATS members who care a great deal either way, and it is of extreme importance in their lives right now. Personally, I couldn't care less about the topic.

What does annoy me is the other aspect you addressed: people interjecting it everywhere, in unrelated topics, much the way people like to interject political statements into unrelated topics. What's worse is it's usually done in a completely unwieldy manner, square peg/round hole effect.

a reply to: Skeets47

Skeets, based on that logic, it could be argued that gays are aiding human survival and evolution by not reproducing, but that's not the point. Humans don't make all of their choices by instinct. We're guided by thoughts and emotions.

The first thing I do after reading the ATS "front page", is click on "RECENT" to see what's being discussed at the moment.

WHY are "RANT" topics never shown in the list of recently posted-to threads???? That right there is something to rant about, and why I rarely post in the Rant section. It's like a back-water forum, or something.

Well said, Paul!
It's doing my head in as well. Not half as much as the endless supply of Trump/Clinton threads, but still enough to put me off coming here and posting more often.
If you're into that sort of thing, surely there are websites out there which specialise in this type of surgery / mutilation.

Paul, I have been thinking this for weeks, well said.
