As politics has become more tribal and geared toward demonization
instead of debate, it’s amazing how many important questions don’t seem
to be asked any more. Instead of discussing issues rationally, people
are stuck in little boxes based on where they fall on an issue.
happened to actually assuming that there are two potentially legitimate
sides to a debate and hashing them out based upon which one makes more
sense? Of course, to do that, you’ve got to get beyond political
correctness to ask the basic questions -- questions that are deemed
racist, sexist, fascistic, etc., etc., as part of an effort to shut down
necessary conversations. At the end of the day, if you want to actually
prove someone wrong, you’ve got to engage him on his ideas and make
better, more logical points. If you can’t even handle the basic
questions so many people have, then maybe you don’t have the best
1) Are we really doing transsexuals a favor by pretending
they can change into another gender and allowing them to mutilate
themselves via surgery or are we actually setting them up for failure
when we pretend that they’re not mentally ill?
2) Couldn’t you
make just as good an argument that America is a matriarchy as a
patriarchy? Life expectancy for women is 79 in the United States while
it’s 72 for men. Men are expected to pay for everything on dates. Men
are required to sign up for the draft; women are not. Divorce courts are
notoriously stacked against men. Fifty six percent of college students
are female and only 44% are male. In the United States, 78.8% of murder
victims are male. In 2015, men suffered 93% of the workplace fatalities.
In other words, if you want to claim one gender is at an advantage or
disadvantage in the United States, doesn’t it almost entirely depend
upon what factors you pay attention to and what factors you ignore?
