    College Kids Say the Darndest Things: On Identity



    A 5'9" white man asks college students what they would say to him if he told them that he was seven years old, or if he was a 6'5" Chinese woman.

    Apparently... these days, you can call yourself whatever you want; and no one has the balls to be that asshole to tell you what you really are.

    More likely they have been whipped from the liberal indoctrination they have received from kindergarden to NOT argue the point..

    It amazes me how we will call someone with a hormone imbalance and talks to themselves as having a mental illness, but those who have a hormone imbalance and believe themselves to be another gender than what the biologically are are never called mentally ill. Why is the left so anti-science?

    You're joking, right? The right believes that the Earth is only 6,000 years old and that the human race is descended from a man and woman that only had two sons... and the left is anti-science?

    I guess that's why Neil Tyson, Bill Nye, and all the top scientists are conservative. Oh, wait...

    Tell the truth... you don't really believe what you just said, nor do you believe that you can actually convince anyone of it. That statement was made solely for the purpose of an "I know you are, but what am I" tactic.

    That's not the right's platform and you know it. You are selecting a small fringe group and labeling it as "the right". Its not like the left who believes the earth has been at a constant temp for millions of years and only now starting to warm up after humans figured out how to burn oil. Or how the left doesn't believe that every human in the world has gone through the zygote stage but will still deny a zygote in the womb as human. The left will believe its not the gentiles you have that make up what sex you are, but what you FEEEEEEELz you are. Yeah, pretty scientific.

    I guess that's why Neil Tyson, Bill Nye, and all the top scientists are conservative. Oh, wait...
    Yeah, and? They want people locked up for debating global warming when countless other scientist have disagreed with them. Not very scientific to silence the opposition, just authoritarian.

    I do completely and even some on the left agree with me that the left has become less scientific in past decades. Hell, the left is already less mathematical than the right when they try to talk about the "wage gap" when its been proven time and time again to be false.

    Come on Rusty...you're better than this. You know that the number of Christians who believe the 6000 year old theory is so small that it's considered a joke, even within the larger Christian community. And for the small number who do it's not limited to the right wing.

    Its not about what can be proven or what the majority actually believe, its about sensationalism. The left cant debate actual quotes from the majority of the right, they want to embellish, like when the talk about NC bathroom law, the left says the right is trying to oppress transgenders when its completely about keep those who would abuse the system to perve and peek.

    That's a point i often raise myself. How is one form of mental illness, something that gets someone locked up for, or given pills to regulate (like OCD, Bi-polar), but another form (self identifying as no gender, the wrong gender, both etc, something we are now Celebrating?

    Strange.. I know more on the left (or independent) who feel that way and are true bible creationists than i do those on the right.

    To add to that, you got those on the left (hillary and obama) who feel 'behavior' such as racism is Inherent in the white man's DNA, where sex/gender is something that is NOT inbred into your DNA...

    Bullshit. The GOP has been appealing to evangelical Protestants for 40 years now, and have even advocated for taxpayer backed private school vouchers so that the children of these idiots won't have to learn any actual science. Instead, they get to learn "because God did it" on the taxpayer's dime.

    Its not like the left who believes the earth has been at a constant temp for millions of years and only now starting to warm up after humans figured out how to burn oil. Or how the left doesn't believe that every human in the world has gone through the zygote stage but will still deny a zygote in the womb as human. The left will believe its not the gentiles you have that make up what sex you are, but what you FEEEEEEELz you are. Yeah, pretty scientific.
    Dude, you are WAY off. First off, while scientists have been discussing ice ages - yes, ICE AGES - idiots on the right have been denying that the Earth is old enough to have gone through such a thing. No one on the left has said that the Earth maintained a constant temperature. However, the recent spike over the last century is man made; and the science back it up when you look at the average temperatures, the rise in sea levels, holes in the ozone later, lakes that have dried up, etc, etc. Yet, who is still in denial after all this proof? The right.

    As far as the definition of a human, no one is really debating that. They're simply ignoring it as a valid argument against a woman's choice. As for the sex, Neil Tyson himself even states that there's no such thing as a sex change, when he states that sex is determined by genetics. The argument for addressing someone as their chosen is gender is one based on respecting someone's identity, not science.

    Dude, if you're going to argue an opposing position, then you need to start having a better grasp on that opposition position. That, or you need to stop purposely presenting it in a way that make it easier for you to refute. That's called a "straw man."

    Yeah, and? They want people locked up for debating global warming when countless other scientist have disagreed with them. Not very scientific to silence the opposition, just authoritarian.
    Source, please.

    I do completely and even some on the left agree with me that the left has become less scientific in past decades. Hell, the left is already less mathematical than the right when they try to talk about the "wage gap" when its been proven time and time again to be false.
    Yeah, after the left has shown exactly what the wage gap is by the numbers? That's the right being in denial.

    Yeah, the numbers are so small that 46% of Americans believe it. Not 46% of Christians... 46% of AMERICANS. Which means... if take away the non-Christians and only look at Christians, that percentage goes UP.

    Tell me... where are the liberal versions of Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell trying to argue the 6,000 year old Earth into politics? I'll wait.
