Where we are headed with all this gender nonsense

Just out of curiosity, is this a global issue? I wasn’t sure if this was a US thing or if everyone is dealing with this. It’s so frustrating. 

I’ve wondered the same about this and some other things going on lately in the US. I remember when I was a kid telling my parents they didn’t know what I was going though. That things were so much different than when they were kids. They assured me that they always understood. I know they were right but I think parents today will have a harder time saying that. It seems like societal changes went from baby steps to leaps and bounds in the last couple years. We have a 12 year old that already goes through stuff that has me wondering what the hell happened. We also have one on the way and I can’t begin to imagine what the world is going to look like for him growing up.

If I had a dollar for every gender, how many dollars would I have?
2, and a lot of fakes. It's biology, biology says only 2!
There is the rare exception when you are born with both sets of genitalia. I get it under those circumstances. But when you're clearly 100% male/female but "identify" otherwise, that's a mental disorder.

When I see patients, I don't refer to them using pronouns for something they are not. Additionally, if you're "confused", I'm happy to refer you to someone else, but I will not prescribe you hormones either.

Whether is be Veganisim, Crossfit, or Gender Neutrality.   The sad thing is there will be 99% attention seekers, and 1% of people genuinely suffering, confused, or genuinely feel at odds with themselves.............especially crossfit.

Like Marlon said "what are you rebelling against?"  "what have you got?"   people in their time often want to shock and push the envelope and do crazy stuff.    I think some on this forum need to remember the whole host of whacky nutjob stuff that was going on in the 1970's.     I'm not sure,  but I reckon 22% of the nation would either put down "wallpaper" or "space programme"  if asked their gender. 

I definitely don't agree with it, but to this day it has impacted my life, 0%.    I would say the "Peter pan syndrome" of the baby boomer generation is far more annoying. A hole army of people, dressing like teenagers, and ruining peoples fun by continuing to attend festivals..........70 is in fact not the new 25, get over it

Men aren’t allowed to be men anymore. Somewhere society decided to go <snip snip> and now it’s me too and gender fluidity, men wear their hair in man buns wearing jumpers. Stay at home dads while the wife has a career... all of this stuff while not necessary bad in it of itself - as a whole is detrimental to men being men. 

I know where you are coming from but I have to disagree .......to a degree.

You are the only one who can diminish your sense of identity. In this case masculinity.  No politician or public servant can change you by changing the words on a piece of paper.

If one saw it as masculine to persecute gays/trans/anyone different (or weaker) then they have no understanding of what it is to be a man/masculine. 

At the same time, no one should "force through penalty" the right for one to maintain his/her established beliefs ...............as long as the expression of those beliefs  are not causing harm/persecuting others.

A little research will show that the actual and attempted  suicide rates of gender challenged youth is quite staggering. Dependent on what you read, around 40% contemplate it (males. It is near 30% for females)

I see no harm in making things a little easier if I can.

Completely agree Rob, (I had referenced percentages in an off the cuff light hearted manner, they were never intended to be taken as from any source).

Whomever may find the concept difficult to support, the reality is it cost us nothing to let people say they are whatever they want. Just like 'flatearthers' present me with no issue.  As I said, it has affected my life 0%, and if it has made someone else contented, then that's just fine.

i have not the slightest clue what crossfit is (should i know? do i need to know? i suspect not) but this is all what i was getting at above. take away their oxygen. the more you fight them, the more they love it, the more press/noise/coverage they get. completely ruins their day if you just shrug shoulders and say fine.

Haha.   Crossfit: An exercise regime, where the intended outcome is to be exceptional at nothing, but mediocre at 5000 exercises that you will never perform in a sporting or non sporting context.

I hadn't realised this until looking into it now, so this discussion is educational at least, but apparently until the 1970's and even up to the mid 1980's homosexuality was considered a mental disorder! How things change over time.

The West appears to be undergoing some huge cultural changes at the moment. It seems to me that we've become fat, dumb and happy since WW2 and the counter culture of the 60's has now grown into a rampaging monster wherein everything of conservative nature is now seen as subversive and woe betide you if you dare to stand up for it, you goose stepping, jackbooted Nazi!

Leftism is a grievance mongering ideology of hate and resentment and the tipping point of its growth in The West may very well come when it finally comes head to head with other, ultra conservative ideologies that absolutely WILL NOT tolerate anything from outside of its prescriptive parameters, even those things which us more moderate, centre/centre right types see as perfectly ok, gay marriage being the most obvious example I can think of right now. 

We'll see what happens, I suppose, but I think that right now we're heading for a train wreck as demographic numbers start to equalise. It'll happen first here in Europe, we've kind of stolen the march on this one. Maybe The US will learn from us, maybe not. 

I sometimes find myself caught between being happy that I'll probably be gone before the excrement REALLY starts to collide with the rotating blades and wanting to live long enough to see how the current circus show plays out.

exactly. sure being trans - and i will confess that i am the furtherest thing from an expert on this - is something that may lead to mental health issues (as can many things) but is not actually a mental disorder in and of itself. just as per being gay was thought of some time ago. aren't we past that? how on earth does it help anyone to stigmatise people in this way?

It helps people who are insecure about who they are to feel less insecure about who they are...

Yeah, I recognize this was an issue many years ago.

 

I'm not under the impression people will fake their sexual orientation for attention. However, the way gender is being promoted to children, many will find a source of attention and use it to get more attention It's easier to fake who you "feel" you are atound others, but if you're truly not ***, I feel far fewer people are going to have same sex partners for the same result of that makes sense.

My thought with all this is where are humans headed as a species? (not in a societal sense) How are we evolving?

That is my pet peeve. 

On reflection,  no bigger a peeve than how 5 year old boys and girls can freely sit down to MTV and watch rapper BJ Bitchslap with his cavalcade of gyrating ho's tell the kids how he likes to jizz. 

I suspect the second one has more of an effect on young minds. 

It is all a touch screwed up.  I am not sure whether utopia really existed in any period of human civilisation once it is put under the spot light

To me these things are bonded and indivisible, i.e. how any given animal operates, will have a physiological affect. for example polar bears changing territory, and eventual cross breading etc. 

To me we are going through an ungoverned rogue era of disinformation, or Hypernormalisation.  We are being robbed of understood norms of truth.  Like the metaphor of pandoras box, (that Stephen Fry has brilliantly laid out) the internet (one imagined as the great liberator) has unearthed the worst forms of human nature. Hate, lies etc. 

Forms of entrepreneurialism all seem to be moving in a morbid direction, to profit from the vulnerable, and those least capable to make well balanced decisions.  The truth is like a compass, without it, people are sailing off into ultra left, and ultra right black holes.  I remember an American work colleague saying back in 2012 "I know my own truth"  such a scary phrase. 

I think we need a reckoning, ultimately even for those who profit wildly from it, Disinformation and lies (i hope) will be a large gas filled zeppolin which will crash to the earth, and we will all breath a sigh of relief.    Oddly I think World Wars usually presents mankind with this kind of humbling fresh page, i.e how could we of been so stupid etc. 

As a species the concept of group gain, usually steers us away from selfishness and unaccomidating opinion,   but the high street is dying, people are talking face to face less, people are not having to see the negative affect of their words or actions in the flesh, they just troll and scroll on 

To me, (although I make mistakes, and have done recently on this very forum)  The internet should be a privilege. Tim Berners-lee invented the internet, as a tool to enrich learning, if we can't be trusted to use it correctly it should be taken away, or at least banned from from a period of time. If that included me, then so be it. 

Are evolution as a species will be determined by if we are able to stop being so isolated and stupid to think our individual voice or tweet holds so much weight.  I think human kind it often at its best post war,  when are ego's have had a royal spanking, and we come together, help each other, and not be so bloody selfish. 

Where this reckoning will come from I don't know, I hope it's not bloody.   But we all need a check up, from the neck up

I think I interpret most of what you've said as societal - how we interact with each other, how we treat each other, etc. I don't know if I can properly articulate my thoughts, but I'm thinking more along the lines of - as we no longer really need two humans of the opposite sex (together at the same time) to reproduce, as the lines between sex / gender / indentity become increasingly blurred - how will (if at all) this effect the evolution of humans as a species?

Unfortunately, they'll still use their God-given gender to reproduce.

Don't worry about it, we will soon just be rowing desperately on a futuristic carbon fibre ship, being whipped by robots
