Simply put, it's because the issue of gender identity has entered the political, social, and academic sphere's forefront to an extent it never really has before (not that it was never there, just that the general public is paying closer attention than ever), and this is one medium for discussing such issues with others. It's something people consider important, so they talk about it.

Of course, I'll also comment on something else since it's been brought up:

>Post statements along the lines of "Liberals are amoral, evil, perverted, uncivil, totalitarian scum whose ideology is rooted in lies, lawlessness, and bitter hatred for anything good and decent!", "My opponent [who has posted scientific resources to support her position] has admitted that her position isn't rooted in science [which isn't what she said], and I congratulate her for her honesty!", and "Gay people are self-absorbed, obnoxious rainbow mafiosos who can't show even basic respect for normal people by having the decency to remain hidden!"

>Wonder how this runs afoul of item 3, sentence 2 of site rules: "Don't insult other users; don't troll, don't flame, don't offer up flamebait."

>Post complaints that warnings and bans against you are just the result of vicious hypocrisy on the part of "sad people" and SJWs, and that reports are just a product of butthurt and attempts to shut down dissent.



Something seems off here.

Oh wow, and here I thought it was like this all the time. Serves me for not going on these boards for literally years.

I'm beginning to realise that at least of a couple of these are literally just made to aggravate people and argue. It's just natural that people talk about these things. I do hope that at least someone can learn something from those threads, instead of mindlessly propagating their ideology for lack of being able to adapt their ideas.

I think it's more about meeting people than learning. Some people are actually kind of cool behind their bafflingly retarded opinions.

Well, I think learning can be something people do passively, and that meeting people and human interaction in general is a really big way that people do that. Of course, you're really only learning if you let those experiences help you in the future, but I don't think it is a stretch to say that people are shaped by those they surround themselves with, and more so by the people they can choose to associate with or not associate with.

That being said, it'd be pretty funny if you to literally approach every person you meet all like, 'HELLO HUMAN, WHAT CAN I LEARN FROM YOU TODAY?'

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.


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.




Nobody expects the Rainbow Inquisition?

Needless oversimplification.

People can be born intersex- meaning a bunch of different things that could concern their genitals upon arrival not being what you would probably consider 'standard', or it could concern their chromosomes, or it could concern something else entirely different. It's estimated that around 1.7% of human births are intersex, so it's not like it's incredibly unique cases either.

Literally just one example of how this whole thing is just so much more complicated than genitals.

A bunch of different things... Like?

1.7%, really...?

"Klinefelter syndrome is one of the most common chromosomal disorders, occurring in 1:500 to 1:1000 live male births."

The most common problem is this and its 1:500 as a minimum plus most have it and most are born with the proper number of genitalia (1).

When I said 1.7% of all human births, which actually includes the dead ones. Hehehe. If I'm going to skew a statistic, like, I'm gonna know I'm doing it. That being said, the number of births with genitalia different from standard male or female actually is 1 in 100, though I suppose not common so non-standard that experts are called in.

Anyway, that's just my sentence structure that you're griping about. It was meant to be read as such:

A bunch of things that could concern either/or
a) presentation genitalia
b) their chromosomes

The number of variances between both a as well as b, I believe, make up the academic term ;a bunch of things'.

If it is not my sentence structure you are griping about, literally very page from the site you quoted just there has a list of all those 'bunches of things' I referred to.
