never put aluminum foil in the microwave

also don't try to cook in an oven that cooks uneven. also don't try to cook a full meal when only 2 out of 4 burners work and you can't even see the one in the back. if all else fails, just don't eat

Because some feel the need to pretend that they are so morally righteous. Gender identity just happens to be the current hot topic of the year.

The subject of sex differences has made its way back into the sciences after the travesty of blank slate theories. The subject has propagated among the masses typically in a diluted form.



People generally aren't interested in advancements in Quantum computing, machine learning techniques rapidly evolving the material sciences, or the accomplishments of the gene editing tool CRISPR.

Human behavior and sex differences do interest me. However, unlike my other interests, they tend to interest more people. It's easier to have some sort of discussion about it. The research into it is hitting a stride. It's a very exciting time in many facets of science. As we delve into into the human genome and map the human brain in the neurosciences--is one really all that surprised gender is becoming a controversial topic again as we tread upon new scientific discoveries in direct conflict with previous notions?

I'm not.

So let us just tackle who we are when we need to, if someone needs it.
Even dispite genders we are still different to each other, so like nature takes it as things goes.

To brain, structure (either muscles or bones and more), whats get released and when (either it being "love" or for combat/extreme conditions) and so on.

People can't figure out if your born with a penis your a male. If your born with a vagina your a woman.

Don't worry, OP, there is a sad group of people that tries to get anyone who disagrees with their views on gender banned, so if you are tired of seeing discussion threads on the topic you won't have to be bothered if they succeed.

Until I can buy myself one and finally use it, nope. Though it was interessting that somebody promissed to set up a cloud where people could write and run their programs a few years ago, but afaik that went nowhere. I even bought a book about how a theoretical assembler would look like. Now I don't even know where I left that. It's just so hard to care about theoretical blah blah if I can't do anything myself with it.
But feel free to give me a call as soon as it becomes avaiable to me d(^_^o)

Why have there been so many threads based entirely around genders?


I believe a few of the threads were created by individuals who were bored (or drunk) at the time and were seeking reactions from us. Purely for entertainment purposes. On the other hand, I believe the majority of the threads are from individuals who are not comfortable talking to their family, friends, and/or lovers on a particular topic. They feel comfortable asking total strangers who they will never see face-to-face. Normally, strangers have no vested interest in sugar-coating an answer to a question to another stranger than those closer to them. So the individual who created the thread gets an honest answer on a topic that more than likely has been bothering them.

Hey--Ground rules here: Don't step on anybody else's act.
I talk about the Rainbow Mafia, YOU just start endless Trump-billy threads about how Saint Don will Save the Internet.

Because to this day, people still think gender is important. Everyone needs to be segregated and and put into neatly labeled boxes... Can't have everyone just be seen and treated equally as human beings, I guess.. *shrug*
