Mrs K: Well, if any boy wants to wear a skirt, he could just buy a girl’s one.

Me: So you are saying he should go to school in a girl’s uniform?
...
That's where it goes wrong. You could have asked: Why are you calling it a "girl's skirt", when it is just a skirt?

Re: What are you afraid of

I'm afraid of politicians with no real knowledge of science or engineering imposing pseudo-scientific solutions on us that appeal to the masses but actually make the problems worse.

I agree that getting the vaccination is one’s free choice. I want to see them accept the consequences of their inaction though.
It's other people who are put at risk by their choices.  If they were the only ones who suffered and/or died because of their decisions, there wouldn't be a problem.

Re: How far we've come

The thermometer in the back of my van was at 37°C before I opened the widows -- but the one in my front porch went up to 45°C despite leaving the door wide open all day.

Re: Online live meeting anyone?

None of my computers would run the Zoom software* but I do join in a regular Zoom meeting by telephone instead.  The organiser sends you a list of optional telephone numbers and a 'password' (actually a pass-number) which you put in via the 'phone's key pad.  I can join in the meeting just like ever...

Re: More non-reactions

By comparison Edinburgh was awash with the most abject slack jawed stares that I have encountered in a very long time. Steve. I too have noticed an increase in somewhat rude reactions to my choice in dress. ... Perhaps these are the neanderthals who would previously have made a big fuss or attacked...

Re: Strange and unusual skirts

It isn't too odd, but I find the length and composition of the fringe to be a bit weird. Without it it's 11.5" long, with 14.5" long. https://mercari-images.global.ssl.fastly.net/photos/m28345784879_4.jpg?1616706789 It looks like upholstery edging that was popular around the bottoms of settees in t...

Re: Forbes: ACLU: Forcing Flight Attendants To Dress As Either Male Or Female Is Illegal

Men don't wear skirts ... because we won't let them. No, society expects, nay demands, that men who wear skirts identify as something that they are not -- which is precisely the same problem but going the other way. (And possibly similar numbers.) Whither equality? It would hve been more accurate i...

Re: Forbes: ACLU: Forcing Flight Attendants To Dress As Either Male Or Female Is Illegal

"The variants are just variants. To call them disorders is to put a value judgement on them" No, they are disorders as they are mostly undesired and they adversely affect the individual's ability to procreate. Your reply confirmed what I originally said: you are putting a value judgement on them.  ...

Re: Forbes: ACLU: Forcing Flight Attendants To Dress As Either Male Or Female Is Illegal

The variants you mention are genetic disorders The variants are just variants .  To call them disorders is to put a value judgement on them and that is the foundation of eugenics.  Would you tell someone that their left-handedness in a predominantly right-handed society is a neurological disorder o...

Re: Forbes: ACLU: Forcing Flight Attendants To Dress As Either Male Or Female Is Illegal

...This is very useful to counter the Bible thumpers when they say "male and female created he them" so you can ask who created the non-binary genotypes. You just say the DEVIL DID! :twisted: And in the eyes of some so-called 'religions'. that justifies mocking them, ostracising them, torturing the...

Re: Forbes: ACLU: Forcing Flight Attendants To Dress As Either Male Or Female Is Illegal

Certainly there are variants of the standard biological separation into "male" or "female", but the vast majority of humans fall into one or the other of those bins. ...but we should not be forcing those people who don't fall into one of them to live a lie in order to affirm our incorrect views. We...

Re: Forbes: ACLU: Forcing Flight Attendants To Dress As Either Male Or Female Is Illegal - OT

So you are saying cattle farmers don't treat cattle as either heifers or bulls? There are non-binary cattle, are there, which are neither male nor female? Seriously? Two questions there. Yes, cattle famers usually treat cattle as heifers or bullocks - but - Yes, there are also non-binary cattle whi...
