Ask the trans woman (aka interrogate the trans woman)
Time

Not many people have the tolerance for a purely analytical discussion when strong emotions are in play. There’s too much to respond to using a telephone as I am, and one should be wary of derailing flame’s thread. While there may be an interesting analytical matter, whether different conditions are both due to brain wiring doesn’t seem relevant here. Sympathy is going to vary regardless the cause for different conditions.

Trident, your initial question was alright, though the psychological is often physical in the sense it’s not caused by experience but rather is baked in (which you recognize). And if we’re talking about solely about the latter, the question that follows yours is what difference it makes? That’s a sincere question for you.

Your last question is essentially whether flame would take a pill, were it available, to make the dysphoria go away. Any given person may have a different answer and it’s complicated by the internal sense of identity one has had and the idea that a pill would destroy that, rather than fix something.

Unsurprisingly your examples get in the way. I get what you’re saying but they don’t really support what you’re getting at.

He is self-deprecating but both of them obviously firmly believe that they’re right and everyone else is stupid and wrong. They frequently attribute the success of movies they don’t like to audiences being stupid or simpletons (see their Rogue One and IT reviews). No matter how ‘common folk’ they seem, that’s their obvious perspective. Like I said, I do the same thing but I don’t pretend otherwise.

They pretend otherwise? I think they’re pretty blatant about thinking they’re right. Yet I don’t see the problem with that. I think you’re taking them way too seriously.

‘Museum of the Bible says five of its Dead Sea Scrolls fragments are forgeries’…

Artefacts will no longer be on display after researchers said they show ‘characteristics inconsistent with ancient origin’

My relatives, evangelical Christians, visited that museum last month. They were very excited to go but were dissapointed. Not terribly interesting or much to see, I’m told. This news makes it even more sad.

I think that’s basically right, flametitan. Journalists often flub issues that concern law, science, and other areas of specialized knowledge. Frustrating they didn’t link the memo itself. I’m no expert on Title IX but as it prohibits discrimination “on the basis of sex,” but not gender, it appears that is what the fight is about. For obvious reasons, not least of which it’s not the best use of your thread, I’m not going to dwell on that. It does however bear upon my questions about people confusing what they’re talking about and getting people to understand each other and engage in productive dialogue. I’ve enjoyed your answers.

Valentine McGillycuddy

Dr. McGillycuddy was a controversial pioneer of the effort to build a sustainable relationship between the United States and the Native American Indian people. He traveled to Washington to protest inhumane treatment of the Indians at Camp Robinson, the Red Cloud Agency, and blow the whistle on Indian agents and military that were exploiting Indians on western reservations. His sincerity and constructive ideas for dealing with the native people so impressed authorities he was offered the Indian Agent post at Pine Ridge, the nation’s largest reservation, a challenging assignment for a 30-year-old.

When Grover Cleveland’s Democratic administration took over the White House and ordered the Pine Ridge agent to replace his efficient Republican clerk with a Democratic appointee, McGillycuddy refused to comply and was dismissed, despite protests from both races that attested to his “effective, intelligent and just administration.”

The Doctor was fed up with “government buncombe and red tape,” He had fallen victim of Washington politics, and was escorted off of the reservation with his wife and their pair of pet buffalo.

When the Ghost Dance began appearing on Pine Ridge, the man who had replaced McGillycuddy as Pine Ridge Agent called in the U.S. Army. To this, McGillycuddy responded:

“If the Seventh-day Adventists got up on the roofs of their houses in their ascension robes to welcome the Second Coming of Christ, the whole U.S. Army is not rushed into motion.”

Speaking of refunds, what about the 200 Frink coins I bought? You promised there would be an online shop where I could use them to buy Frink shirts, Frink hats and Frink mugs, but there is nothing. I’m thinking about cancelling my subscription.

ALLOL

Your hoard of Frink merch isn’t that funny.

your comment makes no sense to me, but that is OK.

Filed under: Mrebo

we’re gonna need a bigger file.

I’d explain it to you but it’s not worth it.

Try harder.

You got it covered.

I can tell that you are trying to throw a fit but it doesn’t quite seem to be working.

Interesting theory.

What’s your theory then? and for the record I actually want to know what it is that you’re getting at.

That’s what makes your responses so strange. I was making a joke about there being no website of Frink merch because you have it all. Thus you were laughing at Frank as a way of gloating. It was pretty obvious, I think. Guess this falls under sandpaper-as-toilet paper time.

Don’t know what Frink is on about. I just want a coffee mug with his mug on it.
