I want to know how you lefties explain this one


Feminist facing 3 years in prison for saying men can't be lesbians

Lets say he was born as a man but identifies as a female lesbian. Since he is a woman, why isnt this statement factually correct?

They would no longer be a man because they identify as a female, right? So then this scenario doesn't work here IMO. They would be a female who is a lesbian.

MY alcoholic father once said to me. I been a father to you and a mother to you. I said, go fuck yourself then.


There are no lefties.

The political left is the political left. That’s not really what I was addressing. I was being obtuse.

When I worked for Disney I was always complaining about company policy that I found objectionable or considered inhumane. “Disney sucks because of this or that.” “Disney ought to do such and such.”

One day a coworker put his hands on my shoulders, looked me squarely in the eye, and said very deliberately… “There is no Disney.”

Then I got it.

“Disney” was an imaginary scapegoat I had created to vent my tribal animosities against. In reality, I was just another employee in a large group of other employees, all just doing the best they knew how, under the circumstances.

At that point I stopped my complaining and just focused on the work in front of me.

It’s not that the political left doesn’t exist. It’s just that habitual complaining about one’s perceived outgroup has virtually nothing to do with politics, and everything to do with evolved instinctual psychology.

There are no lefties, no rethuglicans, no blacks, no whites, no theists or atheists.

There are no others.

Only us. Only life, making suffering for itself.


Why are people on the right so obsessed with other people's genitals? It's frankly perverted.


This really comes down to the definition of words.

A lesbian, by definition, is someone who identifies as a woman who is attracted to other women, right? Two female identifying people who are attracted to each other would be lesbians. If a trans woman, meaning a person who was assigned male at birth but identifies as female, is attracted to other female identifying people, that makes them a lesbian.

A man who identifies himself as a male and is attracted to females isn't a lesbian. That person is straight or heterosexual, since those words mean attracted to the opposite sex.

There are a lot of intricacies to gender identity and attraction, but it's really not that difficult to understand. There are a lot of people who refuse to educate themselves and that creates a lot of problems.

@Beachslim7 Caitlyn Jenner has said that she prefers to be called Dad by her kids. She's aware that she is the father of her children. It's not like that part of her life just disappeared when she transitioned.

@Beachslim7 It's whatever WORKS for them. 🙄
