Why? Because she dared defend a woman who was
fired simply for expressing a defense of biological
reality.
Forstater, 45, was employed as a tax expert at the
Center for Global Development, a British think tank.
In 2018, her organization fired her after she posted
comments on Twitter that criticized the
U.K. government’s plans to let people self-identify
according to the gender they choose.
tweet..."My belief as i set out in my witness statement
Is that sex is a biological fact & is immutable.
There are two sexes. Men are male. Women are female.
It is impossible to change sex. These were until very
recently understood as basic facts of life"

Newspeak is the language of Oceania, a fictional totalitarian state
and the setting of the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949),
by George Orwell. To meet the ideological requirements of
English Socialism (Ingsoc) in Oceania, the ruling Party created Newspeak,
a controlled language of restricted grammar and limited vocabulary,
meant to limit the freedom of thought — personal identity, self-expression,
free will — that threatens the ideology of the régime of Big Brother
and the Party, who have criminalized such concepts into thoughtcrime,
as contradictions of Ingsoc orthodoxy.

This is patently false: "There are two sexes. Men are male. Women are female."

Just google "porn shemales". This is really kind of dumb post not taking into account reality.

As insanely politically correct as Britian has become, I'm surprised she was just fired. You can get a stretch in prison over there for such statements.

Don't you think the woman had the right to say what she said? Do you think her being fired is justified?

And what is the percentage of people outside of being just male and female?

Maybe less than .003 percent of the population?

So, why should that voice guide us versus the more common people?

Let's not forget that there are people that exist on this planet (and forum) that are intersex. Legitimately destroys the male/female binary discourse right out of the water.

Shemales are still biological men, a DNA test will always show that. There is a genetic mutation which can result in a person being born with both genitalia, that is the closest things to a 3rd gender. Personally I don't really see much issue with letting a male call themselves a female if they are quite feminine, what annoys me is when bulked up hairy idiots try to play into it.

It seems to me we need to create some clear separations between biological gender and self-assigned gender. It's fine if they want to identify as another gender but they need to realize they are still biologically a certain gender, and that's very important information when it comes to things like medical records, otherwise they simply cannot receive the most appropriate treatment.

Just because someone, somewhere in the world, out there on the Internet, says something weird. It isn't a worldwide 'leftist' conspiracy.

The internet is full of kooks. Ditto to those who fly off the handle in moral outrage at unseen and vague 'opponents'.

Honestly, the number of these posts accusing 'leftist' or 'liberals' or other similar anonymous group says more about those who post them and the nature of the 'sources'.

But don't worry, because it will get re-posted and commented and cross-posted and opinionized to death and that then makes it real.

We have more down syndrome people than transgender people.

Do you hear them jumping up and down about equality ?

the question of whether a boy, once he identifies as a girl,
should have the right to play on the girl’s sports team is easy. The answer is no.

It depends on the policies where she works. I would be fired in a second under many conditions where I work according to company policy. She's probably being fired for breaking some kind of company policy with regards to her company's public reputation. It probably has nothing to do with what you said. But that other people would interpret as somehow representing the company in some way.

I don't know her company's policies. I'm sure she will hire a lawyer to sort it out.

Other than sporting events I don't think it really matters. I don't care what people think they are. Not my business.

I think media sources write stuff so it's the most controversial. It's click bait. People who think a certain way are played into clicking on these stories and reposting them like fiddle.

I think the transgender people should be left alone. Most of us will probably never meet one our whole lives. There are way more important problems in the World like endless wars, healthcare gouging, etc...

Human males have 'both genders' expressed in their DNA and in their chromosomes (chromosomes are particular ways DNA strands are folded and twisted to pack them into the space of the cell).

The most normal chromosomal expression for human males is X-Y (the Y chromosome usually contains the SRY gene which is a primary determinant of male characteristics).

The most normal chromosomal expression for human females is XX.

This does not preclude other chromosomal mixes such as XO, XXY, XYY, XXYY, XXX, XXXX and XXXXX.
