The guy is Milo...only he's sincere and believes what he says...and acts as though his arguments are rational. His whole "militant gay people" and "college gay recruitment" garbage is enough to handwave this intellectual maggot. But then you get the conspiracies, the climate change denial, anti-semitism and the whole "straight-white-christian-men" are the truly persecuted people in America...and I can barely stop myself from puking.
This guy is pure "yuck", regardless of how elegantly sometimes he wraps up his babble. YUCK
Shapiro is a Jewish surname.
My last name "Goodman" is a common Jewish last name in English speaking countries. I am not Jewish. And there are no shortages of self-hating Anti-Semitic Jews such as Chomsky, Woody Allen, the creators of South Park etc.
Belle, link the debate if you please and Davis will play Cyrano.
That article about transgender and how those opposed cite statistics indicating high rates of mental illness for those who identify as transgender is misleading. It is not dispositive whether the mental illness is innate or external and caused by angst/discrimination.
If somebody is mentally ill and suffers with the delusion that they are Napoleon we know they are mistaken about their identity as Napoleon.
On the other hand if somebody has girl parts but thinks of him/herself as a boy we are not privileged with similar knowledge to invalidate their opinion.
Their is some evidence of differences in brains of those who identify as transgender. I assume lots more will be learned. It strikes me that nobody would go through the pain of being transgender without being utterly certain. It is worse now for transgender than it is for gays. Who would knowingly identify as gay especially in very religious cultures?
