Anyone have anything else to add, that *is* on topic? That when I imagine this, the situation would have to be drastic for me to agree on such treatment for my child. IRL, I don't know any child coming close to require this, despite knowing tomboys and girly boys - they seem okay raised more or les...

So? Is this supposed to be one of those "Echo Chambers" where everyone agrees with everyone else and no dissenting opinions are tolerated or even permitted ? https://windowsontheworld.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/echo-chambers-and-filter-bubbles-in-media-and-social-networks-3-638.jpg Is...

... I was just surprised you would support such a conservative viewpoint. "Presentation" is not "support". Just because you present (wear) clothing that was made in Chinese sweat shops, that does not mean you support slavery, right? But you didn't simply "present" the ...

As for the original topic... Much like when it comes to autistics, where there's too much talk being done by people who aren't autistic, and not enough talk with those who actually are - there's far too much talk from people who are not trans or have otherwise never experienced it, doing the talking...

big·ot noun a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions. (Oxford) a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices. (Merriam Webster) That aside, Fnord, you do tend to employ manipulative tactics to "win" debates, and do n...

Car "body language" is definitely a thing. It's not just the look and gestures of the driver, but how the driver controls the car a well. How long it takes to learn to read varies from person to person. It's something that slowly grows over time. It's not unlike learning to read and interp...

I agree that does look promising at first glance, but it may still be cleverly cherry picked. If you will allow me to continue my role as Mikah, gloomy skeptic of modern science... and forgive me for being too lazy to actually do any legwork tonight. My spidey sense is still tingling. time-series o...

Ken Block STARTED his rally career in his 30's. Alan Rickman STARTED his acting career in his 50's. I watched a 98 year old man receive his master's degree at a graduation ceremony.

There's generally 2 ways to get published. One is to approach a publisher, as you have done. They will be expensive as they are doing all of the logistics for you, and will want to turn a profit on top of that. Many people choose it cos it's a set-it-and-forget-it solution. But it is not the only op...

Human laziness "causes" stereotypes. Stereotyping is, by definition, applying the characteristics of an individual from a group to the entirety of a group, regardless of it's accuracy or actuality. Sometimes a person does fit a stereotype, but that's more coincidence than anything. Just be...
