      First of all, nice! Although are you sure it was a zir and not a zyx or whatever that other thing was?

      If the world ever seriously starts using ideas like this to be so very inclusive to everyone, in my opinion it'll be a real shame. The differences between men and women are what make the world go 'round in my experience, and what make life worth living. Doing anything to try to make people not recognize those differences will take away from life, not add to it. Those that choose to fall into groups that are not traditional, or if you prefer those that are born into those groups, just need to realize that part of the burden they bear is that they can't be categorized the traditional way. It's just part of the deal..if you're born blind you can't see--so do we take away colors for everyone who can see, make everything gray so we don't get an unfair advantage? Some accommodations make perfect sense: seeing eye dogs are allowed in public places, ramps for those in wheelchairs, that type of thing is a minor inconvenience to those who don't need those things and a major life improving thing to those who do. If they try to make gender identity something that's socially taboo it's more than a minor inconvenience to those who fall into traditional gender identities--it would hurt their ability to enjoy life I think.

          Ah, anecdotally , right...


          I'll bet.
          It just shows that academics live in a bubble that has no connection to reality at all. Once again, they had to back off in a hurry whe word got out about the latest Social Experiment
          Why do some on the Left has such a problem with sexual identity? They don't seem to like the fact that sex can be identified at all.

            And your expertise in American football consists of...?

            I would suggest that you outfit one of your rugby teams to compete in an American football game against one of the better college teams and see what happens.

            You really don't know what you're talking about. Rugby is a contact sport; football is a collision sport. There is a great difference.

                I'm quite sure that "sissymen" is not gender neutral. I believe you meant to say zirzyx (or some such!).

                  According to the news this morning, Harvard has joined in the nonsense.

                  This is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard of. It reminds me of the 'Ebonics' nonsense that came out of Oakland, California some years ago.

                  One of my students said something unintelligible one day and I asked him what he was trying to say. He replied 'Mr Kiley, that's Ebonics.' I said, 'Really. Please go up to the globe and locate the country of Ebonia.' He gave me a perplexed look and I explained to him that if he could find the country of Ebonia on the map, then he could express himself 'ebonically.' If not, then the Queen's English was the rule and that if he, or anyone else, didn't speak proper English in the classroom I wouldn't talk or respond to them.

                  That ended the issue.

                  I have a very large problem with people who wish to butcher the English language. It is one of the most, if not the most, expressive languages in the world and too many morons, such as this new group, try to ruin it for an agenda that is nonsense.

                  Sincerely,
                  M

                    And either sport is for sissies, real men play hockey.

                        I mean that when it comes to masculinity of the sport american football doesn't even compare to Rugby. It does compare to soccer though

                          So, you're saying that you don't have any knowledge or expertise in American football...?

                          And if that is so, a comparison cannot be made with rugby, which is nothing more than a game of keepaway that we used to play as kids.

                              The pads and helmets don't stop serious injuries. They do allow more hard-hitting.
