Psychological gender is independent of physiological gender, which has no spectrum.

Either you have XX or XY chromosomes. Yes there can be rare specific medical conditions that give additional parts that don't fit the norm for your set of chromosomes, or others that can remove parts completely, but you're still either male or female fundamentally.

It's like someone saying that humans are not bipedal as a species, but that their number of legs is on a spectrum going from no legs to two legs (or even more in very rare cases). And then saying that if you identify as someone with one leg then you should be treated as such, even if you actually have 2 legs.

I didn't say physiological sex existed on a spectrum; I only said that gender and sexuality were. Not only that, but conditions such as Turner's (XXX) and XXY do exist, although females with XXY are sterile. I study genetics and microbiology in university, had I meant to say that physiological sex exists on a spectrum, I would have said so. There are also conditions where the Y chromosome in an XY configuration has been shut down, yielding a female phenotype.
Come on man; don't flex your knowledge then fuck up; that's just in poor taste.

So all those additional configurations of chromosomes might be described as "rare specific medical conditions" right? If only I'd said that...

#233 - bokkos (03/06/2016) [-]
Yeah, but that's a lot more vague than "additional chromosome pairs". There's lots of medical conditions that can alter your bodily phenotype, most have nothing to do with chromosomes aberrations.

Nevertheless, the categories I implied were 'standard xx', 'standard xy', and 'rare specific medical conditions'.

Talk details all you want, I wasn't wrong in what I said. Sorry I was too ambiguous for your expert microbiology standards.

Mm. I'm just shooting in the dark, I remember addy saying something that he wanted people to make more comps because people hanging on a page brought search traffic and revenue.

#54 - bokkos (03/05/2016) [-]
I guess outside traffic of less tech savvy people (if using adblock can even be considered savvy) coming to view dedicated comps would be a profitable venture, like on Imgur. Fair enough, that sounds about right.

Okay, I'll give you that as it is something that can happen. I'm mainly just tired of all these made up genders, and people asking for pronouns like they and them for their singular self

I can agree with that; the special snowflake fad is ridiculous. That being said, all the current psychological literature seems to indicate that gender and sexuality are more like spectra than strict little boxes; for eg. on one extreme you have heterosexual, and on the other is homosexual, but people can exist in between, like bisexual people. Being the contrarian that I am, I like to say both sides are half right, but still wrong.

Because it gets people like you to stop for a few minutes and write out a comment, thus bringing revenue or something like that. It's why we have comps.

#52 - bokkos (03/05/2016) [-]
You only get ad revenue if you can see the ads, and I use adblock pretty much all the time with a couple of exceptions. I might turn it off for FJ if those horrible animated ads are gone but I dunno man.

scary thing isn't it
that people want to vote for someone because he's a loud mouth racist

it's like, they feel because obama is racist against them (I don't feel acknowledging racism against minorities in america is being racist against whites, but wtf do I know) they're going to vote someone in who is racist against minorities as revenge. sick.

Well, Trump is a conundrum for the establishment since he's the popular vote and a huge anti-establishment candidate there are two options for the establishment/real leaders of the country:
1) Let the will of the people have their Repulican nominee and the establishment risks losing and the process goes on.
or
2) Find a reason to make Rubio or Cruz the nominee and everyone will have true proof that the entire voting process is rigged.

You can see how the votes are rigged since somehow Hillary has more delegates than Sanders despite Sanders is the people's vote for the Democratic nominee.

People are so sick of politically correct career politicians that they're willing to vote for somebody like Trump, as abrasive as he is, all many people need to know is that he is not a career politician and he has their vote, they want somebody to shake up things and are willing to roll the dice on whether or not it will be good or bad, just as long as it isn't any more of the status quo
User avatar
#124 - bokkos (03/05/2016) [-]
Right, but from what I understand a lot of Trumps supporters want to vote for him because they want to burn the establishment to the ground. They're desperate, hurting for choice Like really, fucking Rubio or Cruz? Get fucked , and are so disenfranchised that now there's a loud mouth bullying all the popular kids, they stick to that.

And I'm sure it has to do with that as well; I'm also sure it has to do with the ridiculously shitty American primary education. Like seriously; all the red states have fucking creationists on their boards of education. It's just a perfect shit storm that's shitting into our horrified, upturned, and open mouths and eyes.
