I asked because out of anyone likely to hang themselves, it might be the children.


Which is what I was talking about when I said that some people will be harmed.

Dude, I never wanted kids until right before my wife got pregnant. It was a decision. BUT, even as an adult, I couldn't perceive what I would and would not want in the future.

Now imagine being a kid, and making a decision on whether you should take hormones that will make you sterile or not. No. No kid should be allowed to do this to themselves.

Surprisingly, despite Trump's tolerance of LGBT, a lot of his supporters, even younger ones, are against transgenders on the premise that it is a mental illness. Hell, people may even subscribe to Blair or Milo because not only they break the mold, but because they're deemed knowledgeable or unbiased because they are gay, transgender, much in the same vein that being black makes you informed on the hardships of being a black person. In short, I'm saying because of their views and primarily their identity that people subscribe in the first place. These identity often are said to destroy bias, and I could see the reason why, but I think it is fallacious.

After all, it is a bit of marketing involved, disgustingly enough. You have to be pretty good and smart or least sound like it to be as successful as Sargon without showing boobs, or even a face. Milo, apart from his wish for a world where nothing offends anyone, also makes his sexuality known, even referring to himself as a faggot, being against certain gay rights (AKA All of them) and generally being bigoted against gays in general, on the basis that women aren't much better to be in relationships with. This works because of its juxtaposition of him being supposedly gay, and one must wonder, "What the hell does it have to do with anything"? One of the things I've come up with is that people must perceive him to be an expert or devoid of bias. After all, gays must generally agree with gay rights, or so it is assumed, but if a gay person, who cannot possibly hate gays, does it, he must have a very good reason.

I have a distaste for this in any form. It feels like the tokenism you see with racism, hence my reference to it as "Self tokenism". I should be clear. Blaire may not be opting to advertise herself, as I have not watch a great deal of her videos, but perhaps it is for the better, if people weren't so restricted by their gender identity or their sexuality to support one or the other, because one is left or is right.




Yeah, your first point is definitely true. I will say this quite bluntly, I think that the L and G, and to an lesser extent the B portions of the LGBT community have gained social acceptance at a much faster rate. Keep in mind, that not too long ago many of the same people would have written the whole community off as mentally ill, and if you go even further back you get into the whole interracial marriage nonsense.
Progress doesn't seem to happen at the same rate for different groups of people...

On your second point, perhaps it has some sway, but there is something bigger at play. Due to the PC dial being turned up to a 10, society is turning it off entirely out of frustration. Obviously having no filter is probably not good either, but it is easy for me to see why things have gotten to this point.

Idk, I'll have to admit I do sometimes find such speakers enjoyable to listen to, especially after walking around college campuses reminding how men as a whole need to be reminded daily not to rape people or need to be reminded of our so called privileges. Say what you will, but its a guilty pleasure to help balance out the barrage of over the top PC bs that is present everywhere, especially in modern university life.

Perhaps we can agree to disagree on this topic or admit that both factors have their role in bringing in different parts of said audiences/viewers.

Sadly, you can order these types of medications fairly simple from other countries. Getting past customs as a family with a kid is also simple. Where there's a will there's a way.
