    Nine-Year-Old Boy Asks Buttigieg Advice on Coming Out as Gay

    You seem to be implying those things are somehow related. Please explain. He is a prepubescent child. I did not think that way when I was his age. I don't think I even knew what gay was at that age and I had no frame of reference. There certainly were no same sex couples around when I was a...

    Nine-Year-Old Boy Asks Buttigieg Advice on Coming Out as Gay

    Oh for ****s sake! What does the child mean when he says he is gay then? Gay is a sexual orientation. Sexual orientation refers to sexual attraction.

    Debt forgiveness is a totally backward idea

    You can declare bankruptcy from any other form of debt but student loan debt for starters. There is no real relief from student loan debt.

    Nine-Year-Old Boy Asks Buttigieg Advice on Coming Out as Gay

    At 9 I may have experimented in the innocent playing doctor sense with other boys, not anything as nearly sophisticated as a sexual attraction to boys or girls. I didn't develop a sexual attraction to another boy until I was 13 and well into puberty. It wasn't until my twenties before I realized...

    Debt forgiveness is a totally backward idea

    No, your proposals don't address the problem. We have $1.5 trillion in student loan debt today. Right now. Making college free tomorrow will not solve that issue and that debt is already causing some significant issues. People are putting off having kids and buying homes. The Baby Boomers have...

    My incredibly unpopular view on trans people

    I disagree. They are distinctly different.

    Debt forgiveness is a totally backward idea

    The problem is this is increasingly becoming an anchor on the economy and it has to be addressed somehow and soon. I haven't heard any alternative ideas. Even Trump is pushing a form of forgiveness after 15 years of payments, but with a big tax bomb at the end that may be even more crippling. If...

    My incredibly unpopular view on trans people

    I think sexual orientation is a lot easier. There was a very distinct physiological reaction I have had with men that I don't have with women. It isn't just a feeling. I don't doubt that trans people genuinely feel like a particular gender, but what is not clear is if that feeling in itself...

    Nine-Year-Old Boy Asks Buttigieg Advice on Coming Out as Gay

    Bloomberg - Are you a robot? Am I wrong to find this disturbing? I am gay and I was in my twenties before I had that figured out. I even dated girls in college. How is it a prepubescent child would have any notion of their sexual orientation? Most kids this age are more interested in Roblox...

    My incredibly unpopular view on trans people

    It is this concept of "psychological gender" that I can't ever seem to get a straight answer about beyond "this is how they feel". I find aspects of my body disgusting, but I have adapted and incorporated that into my identity. People lose limbs or are disfigured but they adapt. This whole "not...

    My incredibly unpopular view on trans people

    So in essence you see the whole trans thing as a social construct in response to the social construct of gender normative stereotypes.

    My incredibly unpopular view on trans people

    I think the problem here is you cannot define the question in a meaningful way. What does it mean to feel like a man? What does it mean to feel like a woman? What defines what is masculine and what is feminine so I can ascribe a label to what I am feeling?

    [W:363]accepting gay as normal

    I don't have to show anything. I made the claim there has been no child abuse prosecutions involving the BSA since 2006 and even provided a link of the last one. As such I have made a claim that you should easily be able to disprove if I am wrong. You have provided absolutely no evidence of any...

    My incredibly unpopular view on trans people

    As I said before, if gender is but an internal emotional state, then we may as well concede there are over 7 billion genders.

    Have you changed your thinking the past 3 years

    Yes, my thinking has changed a lot. I now no longer have any respect for either political party and I am saddened that we as a nation don't actually embrace any of the values I naively believed in as a kid.

    Indiana couple drove boys with Trump flags off road: police

    Why would anyone be upset by the political orientation of a teenager not even old enough to vote?

    [W:363]accepting gay as normal

    I think it should be pretty obvious if there were "tens of thousands" of victims in the last 5 years then it would lead to a pretty loud reaction, particularly from those who opposed dropping the gay leader ban. These are older adults coming forward. Court upholds order requiring Boy Scouts to...

    Utah senate unanimously moves to decriminalize polygamy

    Funny how easy it to rationalize the latter is the former when it serves our purposes.

    Utah senate unanimously moves to decriminalize polygamy

    Banishing and ostracizing from the community is the historic and traditional practice that was used to solve most problems.

    My incredibly unpopular view on trans people

    At best you could say he is anecdotal evidence you cannot impose a gender identity on someone who is not a trans person.
