> I never said anything about chromosome being the basis, in any of my comments. And reproductive organs have bearing in a lot more parts of life than what people want to identify as.

That's a mighty tall claim. Feel like backing that up? Because for my money, your gonads are relevant A) if you're trying to reproduce, and don't have banked reproductive material, and... ... ...well, with the advent of exogenous sex hormones, nope, that's pretty much it.

> Yes, but that's not the only definition in the dictionary. The fact that there's another definition for each of those words provides an escape from circularity. The same cannot be said for the "a man is anyone who identifies as a man" definition.

We've been through this. I'm more than willing to go through it with you again, if you'd like. I'd be happy to demonstrate for you all of the ways in which the dictionaries' definitions are problematic - you pick a dictionary, and we can have at it. But at the end of the day, it won't matter, because "The dictionary says so!" is still nothing more than an appeal to tradition, and meaningless.

> Try backing up when you disagree instead of just saying that you disagree.

Nope. I'm not getting mired in seven layers of BS going back and forth about aspersions you've cast that aren't really relevant to the conversation, but I'm not going to let them stand unanswered, either.

> Ok, let's start with this one. First of all, a "man" is a person and not a role. I'm going to go ahead and guess you meant a man is a (person who conforms to a ) gender roll.

Why thank you for being so generous, O Pedantic One. Notwithstanding that I've never seen a gender roll (is that like a sesame roll?), no, I was talking about the concept that the word "man" points to.

> For one, you don't actually describe what this role is. You're just kicking the can down the street to this undescribed male gender role. Is the role about wearing pants? Is it about having a job and being the primary income-earner for one's family? It's hard to securely describe a role without resulting to stereotypes.

I did describe what it is. All of the things you list are furniture, ornamentation that different cultures hang on the role. "Man", or "men", refers to a role that exists in every human culture, associated with but not exclusive to people with penises. That is literally what the word means. When you discuss men in Western culture, men in traditional Chinese culture, men in !Kung culture, and men in Lakota culture, that is what you are referring to. "Man", as a concept, is a variable. I'm surprised that you don't seem to understand this, because it's honestly pretty simple.

> Although intersex people exist, saying there s a continuum implies that people generally fall all over the spectrum, which isn't true. The vast majority of people fall neatly into "only male" or "only female" with respect to reproductive organs.

What you just said is "Your definition is wrong in terms of my definition". Try again.

> That really depends on how one defines sex.

You don't say.

It's almost as though you defied me to present definitions to you, and then I did that.

> My definition (which is the one you're supposed to be arguing against)

In point of fact, it's not. I was arguing in favor of the definition I was presenting, since you cried so much about the unreasonable standard I held yours to (which seems to be code for "I ran out of arguments and couldn't back it up"). Would you like to discuss your shitty definition, instead?

> Secondary sex characteristics are not nearly as important as the author of that seems to think. Actually, none of these things (primary sex characteristics, secondary sex characteristics, or gender identity) are especially important for most things (or at least they shouldn't be). But there are a few areas in which sex is still relevant (locker rooms, possible romantic partners, etc.). I can't think of any situation where what somebody identifies as would really be important.

Yes, you can. Because you don't actually gender people on the basis of their reproductive organs. You don't interact with people on the basis of their reproductive organs. The definition you claim to use, you do not actually use, in real life.

> It's important to make a distinction, however, between those traits that merely correlate with men or women, and those traits that define who is a man and who is a woman.

Sure. Easily done. All of the traits listed are correlated with men and women. Gender identity defines who is a man and who is a woman.

> why shouldn't we apply the same standard to humans that we do to other animals?

Because humans base our societies on gender roles, and not on reproductive organs. If you would like evidence of this, look at the entirety of human history. If you would like evidence of this that is not snarky and sarcastic, go read Leslie Feinberg's book Transgender Warriors, which discusses the history of transgender people and of gender in general throughout human history and across a diverse array of cultures.

> but your definition really begs the question of what would fall under the "gender role" associated with men or women

It honestly doesn't.

> Just in plain, Midwestern, Euro-American culture, what's an example of one thing that would fall under the "male" social role and one thing that would fall under the "female" social role?

That's irrelevant to the discussion. Like, I mean it: completely irrelevant. What specifics a culture hangs on the gender role has nothing to do with the existence of the role, nor its stability throughout humankind. The point is that "men" and "women", as concepts relating to classes of people, are fundamental to human nature, and universal to humans broadly.

> For gender and sex to "match," they would have to be the same category of thing, which they are not. The fact that we use the same words to describe them does not mean that they "match."

I think you're smart enough to make the leap on this one by yourself. I'll give you a hint, though: what you want to think about are the correlations expressed above.

Your intentions are noble but the likelihood of obtaining substantial results (i.e., getting elected) are very small. I believe the last independent elected in Ontario was in my area, Peter North (from the NDP, not the porno star) who started out as an NDPer than for various reasons sat and ran independently.

I've always felt that if you truly feel the way you do, the better option is to choose the political party closest to your ideology and get involved with it. Join and attend meetings. You'd be surprised at how few people really spend enough time to get involved and unless you're totally wacko you can affect policy in short order. Preston Manning wrote a book some time ago that very idea. Good luck.

    Petition to improve documentation of missing people in the US#

  • The petition: Make the Department of Interior Accountable for Persons Missing in Our National Parks & Forests.

  • Why the petition was created:
    "To Heidi Streetman, who conducts graduate teacher-training courses and classes on research methods at Regis, and also teaches at the University of Colorado Denver's ESL Academy, the need for such a resource is clear. As such, she's created a petition entitled "Make the Department of Interior Accountable for Persons Missing in Our National Parks & Forests.
    "I started this petition because there is no legal requirement that federal records be kept of the circumstances surrounding a person's disappearance, whether or not remains or belongings are recovered, or if a person is located alive and well," Streetman writes via e-mail. "This should all be a matter of public record, but it is not. When researchers or family members request records that are sometimes kept, land administrators have stymied requests, claiming it would cost upwards of hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce such records, due to manpower issues and costs of copies. This is in spite of Freedom of Information Act guarantees that federal records are open to the public.
    If a searchable public database of those missing on federal land is required to be kept, by our government, I am hoping it will raise awareness of who is missing and where," she adds. "It will encourage those with skills to do so, to continue searching for those missing. It will provide the public with information about areas they may be visiting so they can make intelligent choices about their own safety and well-being. Hot spots where many people are missing can be identified and investigated, and families of the missing can have the solace of knowing that others are aware of and possibly still searching for their loved ones."
    Dale Stehling's Disappearance and the Need to Track People Who Vanish on Federal Land - FEBRUARY 6, 2015.

    It will about 2 years to get to 10,000 signatures if it continues to get an average of 5 signatures per day, while a petition about renaming of Yosemite landmarks has 114,113 signatures. News signs, etc, for landmarks would cost a lot of money. But the missing persons documentation petition is at least equally important, and has less than 10% of the signatures the other petition has.

    I don't know of a similar petition for Canada public land.

no one, there is a good book on how to figure out what is actually true (how to lie with statistics), it is great and really lets you know something.

u/Axeking12 · 6 pointsr/ontario

Hey buddy. Im not the guy to talk to about THC levels and all that. But the prerolls are kinda expensive. If u were gonna use those regularly I recommend hopping on amazon and getting the RAW joint roller for 10$. It works well and will save u money in the long run

It doesn't really matter if you've heard of it or not. Either the contents are true or they're not.

You haven't addressed anything I wrote so I'm not going to waste my time beyond this.

Ford is psychotic!

There's no peace in North Korea yet and Trump just ripped up a nuclear disarmament treaty??? There's also no surplus... there's a MASSIVE deficit due to his tax cut for the wealthiest Americans.
