If a car has a trunk wrapped around, it's in much more serious trouble than if it has a boot on top, because an elephant shaking the car is more likely to destroy it than a human standing on it.


And how about if it's an elephant wearing the boots?

It creates a different way of seeing the world. The reason dyslexics have such a hard time reading is because they see everything in three dimensions, rotating images in their minds and constructing excellent mental replicas of things. It is this three dimensional rotation which causes them to jumb...

I do have aphantasia so visualising anything is not an option for me.

I'm not from the USA so your choice of phrases mean nothing to me, plus I can't picture anything inside my mind because I have aphantasia, so does that make me biased or unbiased?

Institutional racism as it exists in America today is still perpetrated mostly by whites, solely against nonwhites.And there's no place in American today where blacks can do the same to whites. That's true enough now that "The Cosby Show" is no longer on the air. Oh hang on a minute, if y...

Both, eugenics is obviously a viable business model because a lot of prospective parents/clients would like to have a "perfect" child. In contrast selling "inferior" sperm is not a viable business propositon because there aren't enough potential buyers.

So what it amounts to is that unless people's choices conform to what you believe is right then those choices must be wrong? What made you the arbiter of right and wrong?

By your own standards have you acheived your education aims and lived a productive life that benefits society?

No it's an objective fact. You get to choose to murder someone or not, but you don't get to "decide" whether murder harms people or is beneficial - it's decided by natural law. And as I mentioned the "HS" example was just an analogy; dropping out of HS itself isn't automatically...

My reasons for dropping out of education are my own but without knowing anything about my reasons, or the reasons of anyone else who has dropped out of education, you're prepared to make a blanket statement that that choice is inferior to someone else's choices? That isn't a fact it's a subjective o...

I chose to drop out of education. It's nice to know that some consider my choice of what to do with my life as being inferior to someone else's choices.

The simple fact is that autism is a disability, a condition, call it what you will. Autism is a broad spectrum and some people on that spectrum have very challenging behaviour that can injury themselves and put a huge strain on their families over the course of their entire lifespan. What is wrong w...

People with Asperger's syndrome were also turned down from the sperm bank :( Sperm banks are run on eugentic principles so they obviously don't want anything less than perfect donors. They probably turn down people with HIV, Parkinsons Disease, Downs Syndrome, Inherited Heart Disease and a whole lo...

For hundreds of years, men have been expected to marry, to sire children and to be the primary labourer who provides for their wives and children, and expected to die in the name of a privileged nobleman or a government which they had no say in. Your right to autonomy and freedom of choice was boug...
