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.



Regardless of your knowledge of shemales, there are still only two sexes via DNA.

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.



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...


I agree with you on both accounts. However, the TG crowd don't feel the same way, they have been screaming for special rights for years. That's what needs to stop.

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?


Not only that, but how many of that infinitismal percentage are actually up in arms over this but are instead being used as a screen by those who were either 100% female or 100% male but are trying their best to deny that biological fact or those who just like to show how virtuous they are by getting offended on everyone else's behalf.

I think many have already used it quite effectively against themselves.

The people in our capitals are BSed to believe there are lots of LGBT people out there, way more than the five percent that actually are. They think there is a lot of votes there for these people and people who support them. There isn't, most of the people who do support them will not go out of their way to vote for those in congress who are trying to change the laws. In fact, it may deter more people from voting for the candidates in the long run.

Politicians are not all that smart, and the think tank people are not very wise. They can bury themselves so deep into scenarios that they cannot see what is really going to happen. I know the ways of these kinds of think tank people, being an overthinker myself. I know sometimes they get diverted down the wrong path because they feel they are that smart that they do not have to actually evaluate the validity of the research they read to verify if it is applied properly to come to the right conclusion.

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.


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.



However, the VAST majority of the shemales the poster is interested in on porn sites are males with a boob job on female hormone treatments.

Which interestingly enough tells more about the poster then the topic...

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


It matters in school locker rooms, prisons and hospitals.

Do you think she should have been fired?


No.

People are entitled to an opinion and a voice. Especially if they are not doing anything to hurt someone else. Even if we disagree.

Did that woman sign a contract saying that she would not discriminate based on gender?

I'm looking at one now. I know that if I sign it I will have no choice. It doesn't bother me because it really doesn't bother me but maybe the person in the OP did the same without thinking about the consequences.

Just to clarify, Maya Forestater is the woman who was fired from her position 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.

This was Maya Forestater's offensive Tweet:

She tweeted her agreement with Fair Play for Women, a feminist group that opposes allowing biological men into women’s sports. She said, “I share the concerns of @fairplaywomen that radically expanding the legal definition of ‘women’ so that it can include both males and females makes it a meaningless concept, and will undermine women’s rights & protections for vulnerable women & girls.”

Maya's complete Statement: Claimant’s Witness Statement

Maya lost her court case:

The tribunal rejected her claim. In a lengthy judgment issued on Dec. 18, Judge James Tayler ruled that her view is “not worthy of respect in a democratic society,” calling it “absolutist” and “incompatible with human dignity and fundamental rights of others.”

What’s more, Tayler said Forstater’s views are not protected as a “philosophical belief” under the Equality Act 2010, even though “religion or belief” is one of the nine categories protected in the law. The Equality Act is the basis of anti-discrimination law in Great Britain.


What got JK Rowling on the Transactivist Hit List is that after Maya Forestater lost her court case, JK Rowling Tweeted the following message:

Dress however you please.
Call yourself whatever you like.
Sleep with any consenting adult who’ll have you.
Live your best life in peace and security.
But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real?
#IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill


JK Rowling has since doubled-down on her position and declared one of her characters as the -oh-so-dreaded TERF:

“Hermione is smart, talented, and 100% gender critical,” Rowling posted in response to a fan’s question about Hermione’s favourite flavour of ice cream. “Hermione believes that sex is a biological fact determined by chromosomes, and that male predators will use trans-friendly legislation to assault women,” Rowling said, answering another question about what kind of dog Hermione likes best.

J. K. Rowling announces that Hermione is a TERF

JK Rowling is in the enviable position (much like Kanye and Kim Kardashian) that they can use their position for good and not be threatened by anyone. JK has already made her fortune, her name, her reputation. I'm thinking she could retire yesterday and continue to live a life of luxury for the rest of her life. No one can touch her.

The Transactivists have taken it too far. They don't realize it yet.

They are also heterosexual men with a sexual fetish. They get off on others seeing them as "women." They are literally DEMANDING that we participate in their sexual fantasy.

They are AUTOGYNEPHILES. They do not have gender dysphoria. They have gender EUphoria. It just feels sooooooooooo good to play "woman."

It's estimated that autogynephiles make up to 80% of male-to-female transgenders. And about 80% of them are estimated to keep their male genitalia. (Although I have to say, I sure don't blame them... just don't make the rest of us pretend it's a female penis!)

That wasn't what I asked. I asked if they signed a contract which let others establish what constitutes discrimination.

Got to read the fine print.

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.


Bull. If for no other reason than because the human body ONLY comprises male and female factors -- DNA, hormones, chromosomes, anatomy, etc. Everyone is a combination thereof -- male or female.

But let's get to the heart of the matter: Are you advocating for the necessary and proper medical testing to identify those rare people who have deviances and deformities in order to identify as "transgender"?

Are you willing to mandate medical testing to confirm "nonbinary" conditions to obtain legal status as a "transgender" person?

Or are you just exploiting those souls unfortunate enough to actually have an intersex medical condition?

In other words, are you just throwing it out there to gaslight the rest of us???

Heat from the LGBT left - thats a laugh, she should ignore them.

As for the lady she defended, a good lawyer should be throwing themselves at her pro bono as they will make a massive name for themselves for suing the A$$ of the company for firing her over something she said on a personal account outside the work environment.

Unless of course she said it on the company twitter account which would then seem like it's a representation of the tax companies opinion - something you did not clarify either way OP.

The interesting thing about this is not so much the particular issue-(which I find ridiculous).

Rather its the way JK is now being treated by her former "gang."
Because she is a high profile author,the lefty/neo liberal twitterati used to use her as a fantastic public example of their weirdo views on how everyone should be forced to behave.

She still holds 99% of those views-lets import millions of muslims and give them free stuff,native white people are the devil,trump is hitler,corbyn is god,everyone must be woke, etc etc

But now,because she has expressed a view which is opposed to just one tiny part of the lefty agenda-men are men,women are women(the horror!)-
Well,now she is villified by her former gang and has effectivley been thrown off the lefty lovie bus and dumped in the gutter!

With my (possibly now illegal)sense of humor,I find the whole thing hilarious.


PJW did a funny video on it-check out what some of her former gang are now saying about her-its like they want to string her up!

And when an archaeologist digs up their bones they won't have such delusions weighing on their identifications.

There are 2 sexes and a whole host of mental issues.
