    The advances and wonders of scientific progress making gender irrelevant

    An artificial womb would mean complete reproductive parity between the sexes

    Why do we need that? Socialism will emancipate us all.
    There is sexual freedom on one hand, on the other do we need Frankensteinism?
    Next you’ll be praising vivisectors for head transplants!

    Why shouldn’t sports be unisex?

    I don’t think anyone has a problem with people choosing to form unisex sporting leagues.

    Some people have a problem with trans-women being admitted into women leagues in that it goes against the point of wanting such leagues in the first place. I.e to compensate for the fact that people born male tend to be taller, heavier and have a higher muscle mass etc.

    So you’re still thinking of sport as it is now: competitive and serious? Not just play and fun?

    The first thing schools do is stifle natural play and replace it with regimented competitive sport.

    competitive and serious? Not just play and fun?

    I’m sure those who engage in “competitive and serious” sport get something out of it because it is competitive and serious that they wouldn’t if it was not. As to if people in the future would choose to organise sport in this way or not – I don’t really care!

    P Abelard: are you a member? because you’re the only one here who sounds like one. absolutely agree with you about sports. it’s a problem of capitalism with its ethos of winning and achievement. this whole issue is grounded in capitalism and its stereotypes and expectations.

    I did write a post for here, I took a call and my iPad closed! 😡😡😡

    I was on TikTok, saw a boy (obviously one has to be very careful watching kids!) Luckily, there was a text of what he said scrolling above him.
    I tried to find it again but because it was a child I didn’t follow him.
    He said: “at school we are taught not to worry about abuse and violence, most kids go along with it?“

    I replied: Most Tory MPs, including Boris Johnson were taught to dismiss abuse and violence, at Eton! That’s why they says nothing about Yemen or Syria!

    I was told the reason the Chinese wear queues is so we can grab them when they try to escape.

    I know, somewhat archaic. Our teacher had been a Boer War drummer boy. He still thought Germany was a monarchy and that the Queen was Empress of India.

    Richard Dawkins has this to say on this subject in an interview today in the Times (of London) on his 80th birthday:

    “As to transgenderism, although when he meets a transgender person he is happy to use the pronoun of their choice, he worries about a ‘cult of transgenderism’ that encourages children to know what they are doing to announce that they are transgender and perhaps seek hormonal or surgical intervention.
    “Will the biology textbooks have to be rewritten to separate gender from sex? ‘Yes. I think if you are talking about biology, then you have to say it’s a semantic question. You use the word ‘male’ when you’re a biologist in the case of mammals for individuals with CY chromosomes and ‘female’ for chromosomes. In the case of birds it’s the other way round.You won’t get far as a biologist if you start messing about with fluid genders and things like that. That unit biology.’”

    I’m not sure who told you that, but I think they may have been trying to fob you off!

    Due to covid restrictions, not a lot of cuddling going on, grandma, grandpa, uncles and aunts, sadly.😞

    Perhaps we should produce a love manifesto? Lol
