They shown that if you simply change your name on your resume' it will affect how many call backs you get. Deshawn, Shanice, DeAndre. Isn't that privilege or lack of it that people in the majority class don't have to deal with?



Well, tell us what class of people do you associate with the names you chose...? Sounds as if you have some sort of issue

But thankful implies there is someone or something to be thankful to -- who are you thankful to that oxygen or water exists


That's my point also. Are you thankful to some
god that you believe exists? Or to fate or random
chance? That's a waste of time, neither are real.

I'd rather be thankful to the people who came
before me, or the president, or the armed
forces. Or people who feed the homeless.

I would argue that the standards are better in general for gay people. But I would also argue transgender haven't gained as much ground, and since Ocasio was specifically referring to cisgendered maybe that was accurate.


They are the ones who choose to act like freaks.

There are TWO GENDERS!

You are born one or the other.

You cannot change which you are born.

That is simple science.

Children look at some guy wearing make-up and a dress and ask mommy or daddy what is wrong with that person. It is that obvious.

Here's how society works. It tells
you what your place in it is, you
don't tell society it has to change
because you want it different.

Be whatever nutjob you want in
private, expecting everybody
else to accommodate you in
public is just plain selfish and
self centered. But that's what we
have now as a result of no men
being in the household. Selfish
spoiled adults who are so confused
they think they're the center of
the universe.

You might be on to something. In my day if a boy "identified as a girl" his dad would give him a good crack upside the head and be told to stop acting like a fruitcake. Not that most kids would, because the father was there to identify with. These days the man is not there nearly half the time. A good portion of that time the man is not in the picture at all. And another good portion of the time the mother hates men for her own bad choices.

So the kid has no man to emulate. The mother at the least subtly saying how awful men are all the time. So the kid is naturally going to try to please his mother.

You might indeed have hit the nail on the head.

What is the actual percentage of the world population medically intersex people that are born? What is the actual percentage of the world population that self-identifies as a non-binary gender?

This is the me me me generation. You have
to accommodate ME because that's what
mommy did at home. You never saw this
crap a few generations ago, before the
feminist movement. Strong father figures
teach boys how to be men. We now have
a rudderless society floundering around, so
pitiful they can't even figure out what
gender they are.

You now have to have a word that
means you're throwing up your
hands in defense, that you're not one
of these sicko misgendered dopes
wandering around trying to play
the sympathy/victim card.


To play the devil's advocate on this one, EB could argue that he wasn't making a sweeping generalization, but referring to a group within a group. I'll let this one slide with a warning to play nicely.

Without looking it up, I don't know. How small does a population have to be for people to discriminate against them?


OTOH, we don't build military fighter jets for blind people. I understand the cost constraints and practical applications. But braille on a door to identify something in a public building isn't asking too much. Not harassing someone for being different isn't too much to ask either.
