I have been blogging online since before there were blogs. I continue blogging from time to time on various subjects here and as much of my past blogging as I've been able to recover is found here as well.
Gender is a made up social thing. But where does that impact one’s medical care? Men need urologists, women need OB/GYNs, which doctor does Eliot Page, Demi Lovato, and Eddie Izzard need? Are there special diseases, conditions, organs, and systems the non-binary have or lack compared to the binary?
I read the whole article and was left with more questions than answers. If this omnisexual person is attracted to both male bodies and female bodies, and recognizes and appreciates them as men and women, and finds attraction in either masculinity or femininity, how have I not just described a bisexual person?
Unlike time to be imprisoned, we do not all share the same income to be fined. A $500 fine to me means bills don’t get paid. A $500 fine to Warren Buffet is a rounding error. So, you end up with the double-parking scenario in New York, where it’s easier for the rich to pay parking tickets than to try to find parking.
I always try to be clear. Sex is an unchangeable biological reality, observed not assigned at birth, that makes us male and female. Gender is a fluid personality trait, expressed subjectively, that makes us men and women. Most men are male, most women are female, the few who aren’t we call trans.
I know all y’all don’t see how the pendulum could ever swing back now on marijuana legalization. But I have very good friends in marijuana legalization who were certain it would be legal by 1980. I also remember well how ubiquitous cigarette smoking used to be, and not a single cigarette smoker was arrested to make it the huge taboo it is today.
This year, Warren Zevon, Iron Maiden, and Soundgarden (all rockers) were nominated, all with years of eligibility (25 years after first release, which was 1969, 1980, & 1988, respectively), but first-time nominee Missy Elliott (not a rocker) is inducted, her debut being in 1997.
Not only is the public prohibition of showing female breasts antiquated and downright Puritan by European standards, (especially at a swimming pool), it’s sexist. That trans man lifeguard with the exposed boobies would probably rescue someday a fat-ass male with bigger boobies than he.
“Sadly, I have to say, that no one really has covered it well, the insurrection. Because they only say that they were wrong, they have to go to jail, we have to punish them and all that stuff. But no one really has gotten into why was it that way? What powers do people have that have really upset and angry at government?”
The self-driving future has arrived in San Francisco. And, increasingly and all too often, it looks like a confounded cop, road flare in hand, commanding a wayward autonomous vehicle as if it were a misbehaving, two-ton puppy.
That’s why the police reaction was so slow. “A guy with an AR-15? You’ll need to give us more. He’s firing it in his yard? Yeah, go on. At night, sure. But he’s in his own yard? Well, ma’am, you need to explain how there’s a crime being committed. All you’re telling me is there’s a good guy with a gun blowing off steam. Oh, sure, we’ll have someone stop by…”
