    The person who immediately shifted to a bevy of ad hominems when challenged to actually substantiate statements like "minority opinions are required to be taken as gospel", "workplace DEI initiatives and NGO recommendations are the same thing as Jim Crow", "not being a judgmental asshole at work doesn't bode well for the future", and "acknowledging there's a power disparity between demographics in the context of assessing what constitutes hate speech is the same sort of thing that caused the Holocaust" is calling someone else bad faith poster, huh?

    I'm feeling that the circus is intensifying in this Chili's tonight.

    If you want to have a real conversation, then I'm down. Also, never call me habibi again, it's not cute and I don't consent.
    I thought that sometimes you need to be critical of someone's appearance?

    I mean it's not really an attempt to meet in the middle, it's just plain old stupid.

    Really carries the same sort of "corporation being out of touch" air as that whole gravitational pull of the Pepsi logo incident.

    How the hell?

    The person we were responding to literally said "After gender transition."

    The study provided mentioned nothing about before or after.

    And we are the one's moving the goalpost?

    This is the most out-of-touch, stupid, paranoid, bizarre comment I think I've read on MMO-Champion in quite some time, and that's saying something. I sincerely hope for your sake it's a joke.

    You can take it up with the entire mental health profession if you want, but that's how all dysphoria is diagnosed. You no longer have dysphoria when the distress is gone. Dysphoria, of all types, is defined by the distress (as are most mental illnesses actually). It is rich for you to claim that other people are denying how mental health works while you claim you know better how diagnoses work than the DSM does.

    That's exactly the point. Transgender people aren't asking to be identified biologically as the opposite sex. They are asking to be identified socially as the opposite gender.

    The fact you're even trying to argue this, lets me know that you aren't worthy of anyone's time. Beyond the fact that you completely took what was said out of context just to try and make some dumb ass "woke" point, is pathetic. And real women don't need your kind of bullshit.

    Where is it implied that being heterosexual and slim/curvy is wrong?

    Pretty much, but transgender opponents refuse to ever engage in that discussion (because they know they don't really have good arguments). Instead, they stubbornly insist there is only ONE meaning to "man" or "woman" and it's defined biologically (and of course they just ignore all outliers like ambiguous genitalia or XXY etc. with 'those are irrelevant exceptions').

    Once you get them to admit it doesn't quite work that way, it's usually not that far off to them accepting they might be wrong. But 99% of them will never admit it, and just retreat into the usual rhetorical defenses ("if I cut the balls off a male dog it doesn't magically become a female dog!" and so on).

    Wait what?
    It is being taught in schools, on social media if you speak out against it you're being banned. And yeah MAP is a real thing taught at college-level academia. The world is fucking broken and disgusting, and some people are pushing for it to be that way in the name of "inclusion". So yeah, the message seems to be Go fuck yourself if you think otherwise it seems.

    Good fucking lord.
    It's not just dumb, it's literally an inverted Power Flower. The whole point of the power flower is to be used in exercises to assess personal identity, including socially ascribed and inherent traits. It was not made to be a "Power Level" (or Diversity Level) indicator for videogames, and I don't believe it's fit for purpose.

    I have two graduate degrees, including one in sociology, and I lecture part time at a college. You are just making this shit up, or believing other who are making this shit up.

    There is nobody being taught in school that gender dysphoria isn't real. It's in the fucking DSM. You have to get a gender dysphoria diagnosis to even get insurance to cover anything. You are delusional.

    It' already been covered plenty in the subsequent posts that you're idea of "just stating truths being offensive and banworthy" is mired in simpleminded, bigoted rhetoric. It's not that the statement itself, put forth divorced of any context, is incorrect. It's that almost anyone (and certainly you included given your "real women" bullshit) who spouts off these "facts" is invariably doing it to harass and demean other people.

    Clearly you never took geography because I swear to god that entire faculty is just obsessed with MAPs and arguing which type of MAP is a more accurate MAP.
