Damn that was long. I prefer debating specific points so when you lay out dozens of different ones it makes it hard to drill in. Mind keeping your posts shorter and to few specific points from now on so we don’t have to write covers back and forth?It's very odd to advocate that feelings define reality. If I "feel" the presence of Jesus, do non-believers have to do so without the desire to believe or in the absence of proof?It’s psychology and sociology what do you need to prove? Is it a requirement for you to prove you love your wife or kids? What needs to be proven. People feel how they feel. You can argue with them and tell them they don’t feel that way or they are crazy... or you can listen to them and try to understand and relate with them.
Meanwhile, you're recklessly throwing out false assumptions left and right.
1. "Argue with them".. well, if they say something that I disagree with, I'm allowed to disagree. Do you label your critiques of things you disagree with as "arguing" with people? No, I doubt you do.
2. Nobody said they don't feel that way. They obviously do. I simply don't believe their ideology, and I'm allowed to do that, unless you're the totalitarian type.
3. I never said they're crazy, and not many people do in society. So, your attempt to stamp me with such a claim is rather passive-aggressively malicious.
4. I Understand their argument, and empathize with having gender dysphoria. It's not as if because I don't agree with the ideology means I'm nasty or refuse to treat them as humans. I'm not the one attacking, they are. They attack those who disagree as "Hateful". Perhaps if we want respect, we should act with respect. Putting people on the defense and maligning them, and then wondering why they might have people who come back at them is rather short sighted. I don't support retaliating against these nasty woke trans-activists, but let's not act like they're not going to tick people off.
It must be very scary to have such a foundational structure in one's psyche skewed. That's probably why suicide rates are so high, because of the dissonance and dissymmetry. It's definitely not bullying and such, as other victim classes who claim oppression don't have massively high suicide rates. There's clearly something intrinsic going on with a horrible feedback loop of confusion and depression. We shouldn't be glorifying and encouraging it, especially amongst our youth.
You and I can prove Thelma is Black. By scientific observation and melanin measure.Yes it’s evolution. We evolved on our view of women, then blacks, and now is our time to evolve in our understanding and acceptance of LGBTQ
You and I can prove Thelma is a Woman. By chromosome measure, and many other telltale signs.
You nor I can prove Thelma has decided to identify as a man based on feelings. Anyone can feel anything. Meanwhile, there's no frame of reference. I have no idea what it feels like to be a woman, because I'm not one. And you have no idea what it feels like to be an opposing sex. We can all feel characteristics that are stereotypically assigned with the opposite sex, nobody is stopping it whatsoever. They'd simply just be a feminine man or masculine woman. That's it.
Massive difference. Your attempt at a laughable narrative and pseudohistory debunked. *Yawn*
when it comes down to it these are just people wanting to live life in the way that feels the most natural to them. To come out and say you don’t believe in their ideology is pretty lame. It’s not a subscription to a set of beliefs or the the joining of a religion it is people expressing who they are. There’s nothing to prove. We do live in a free country do we not?
