    Liberals Think They Can Alter Reality. They’re Wrong.



    We will never understand liberals and progressives until we recognize that they often see reality as a social construct subject to being challenged and changed.

    For example, throughout the world, boys and girls have different toy preferences. Typically, boys like to play with cars and trucks, whereas girls prefer dolls.

    Liberals explain this with the assertion that boys and girls are socialized and encouraged to play with different types of toys by their parents, peers, and “society.”

    Growing scientific evidence suggests that toy preferences have a biological origin. Even studies of male and female primates find that they exhibit similar toy preferences.

    Despite the growing evidence of biological determinism, liberals have managed to intimidate toy sellers into getting rid of the labels “toys for boys” and “toys for girls.”

    Another reality issue that’s extremely annoying to liberals and progressives is chromosomal sex determination.

    The XX/XY sex determination system is found in humans. Females have two of the same kind of sex chromosome (XX), whereas males have two distinct sex chromosomes (XY). This chromosomal reality is seen as limiting, annoying, and an artifact of a patriarchal, chauvinistic society.

    So liberals and progressives want to change it. Say you are an XY (male) individual but would like to conduct your affairs in a facility designated for XX (female) individuals, such as a ladies’ room. You can satisfy your desire by claiming that you are transgender—that is, you’ve switched from one gender to another. Therefore, if one has XY chromosomes, he can behave as if he were an XXer.

    Plus, there is the expectation of being addressed according to one’s chosen gender. The Minneapolis Police Department has a new rule that requires officers to address transgender people using their preferred names and pronouns. When an XYer is arrested but claims he is a woman, I wonder whether the police will place him in a cell with XXers.

    Just how far the Minneapolis authorities will go is in question; maybe they, too, believe that reality is optional.

    Another part of reality that liberals and progressives find difficult to accept is the fact that equality among humans is the exception and inequality the norm.

    If one were to list the world’s top 30 violinists of the 20th century, at least 20 of them would be of Jewish ancestry. Jews constitute no more than 3 percent of the U.S. population but 35 percent of American Nobel Prize winners. One wonders what liberals would propose to promote equality in violin excellence and winning a Nobel Prize.

    By the way, liberals and progressives love to attend classical concerts, where there is a virtual absence of racial diversity.

    Year after year, blacks of West African descent walk away with all of the prizes in the Olympic 100-meter run. The probability of such an outcome by chance is all but zero.

    It must be a reality—namely, genetic physiological and biomechanical characteristics—that causes blacks to excel in certain sports (e.g., basketball, football, and track) and spells disaster for those who have aspirations to be Olympic-class swimmers.

    Somehow liberals and progressives manage to cope with some realities but go ballistic with others. They cope well with black domination of basketball, football, and track and with the near absence of black performers in classical concerts. They also accept the complete absence of women in the NFL and NBA.

    They even accept geographical disparities. For example, not a single player in the NHL’s history can boast of having been born and raised in Hawaii, Louisiana, or Mississippi.

    The reality that they go ballistic on is the reality that we are not all equally intelligent. There are many more male geniuses than female, and median male IQ is higher. Liberals might argue bias in the testing. Men are taller on average than women. If liberals don’t like that, would they accuse the height-measuring device of being biased?

    The lesson liberals need to learn is that despite their arrogance, they do not have the power to alter reality.

    That's kind of obvious give the amount of nonsense in your OP. The sad part is you would not be willing to discuss all the errors in an honest way.
    You will never understand 'liberals' until you want to understand them. Right now, you just want to paint them stupid because you know full well they are smarter than you and you are jealous.

    The main thing liberals want is to prevent what is happening in congress right now, for instance, the republicans before even being sworn in had a secret cabal to kill the independent ethics panel. For once Trump stepped up and called a halt to that piece of trash. Sure it wasn't a liberal who did that but that would be one thing they would fight for.
    Another thing worth fighting for is the republican agenda to remove regulations about worker safety and EPA regulations regarding such things as Fracking and such and safe mining, repubs would love to strip all that from the government and just let the big companies police themselves. Like that would ever turn out ok for the working stiff.

    Republicans would love to send America back to 14 hour workdays, kill insurance, kill social programs, let them eat cork, they could give a shyte about the little guy.

    You think I am making up stories? Just wait till Trump and the bastard republican congress get together to strip worker protections, EPA standards and such in their blighted effort to allow companies to walk all over the citizens.

    It would be like the Jean Ritchie song Black Waters all over again. Screw the little guy, we are going to blow up that mountain so we can mine the billion ton coal deposit there. 1930 all over again. That is the real fight going on right now not some stupid missive about raising kids. BTW spanking kids has been outlawed in over 50 countries. I guess that is a bad thing.

    So, now you know exactly what 100 million people think?? Trying to stereotype the thought patterns of 100 million people would strongly suggest it's YOU that is trying to alter reality.

    We all alter reality. That is why Dims use the psycology of words.

    For example, they changed their name to "Progressive" instead of "liberal". Those that oppose them are "Regressive". This does not change the outcome of the success of their polices but it can change the level of support they receive.

    Who the hell are these liberals you're referring to?

    Facts like: Ethiopians run faster than low-land Scots is a given... who the hell disputes it?
    What the liberals I know say is that the faster Erhiopian shouldn't have more or less rights than the slower Scot.

    As for trans-gender... yeah, I'm off to masturbate to pics of your mother shagging a dog... if I remember I'll get back to your madness one day.

    Sure, I'm jealous that I am not a liberal, progressive, leftist whatever you call yourself .

    It almost did, with obamacare, illegals, and sky rocketing deficit. But we stopped it in time, I hope.

    What's truly remarkable is there are so many people in the US who read this type of ignorant, poorly reasoned discourse and believe that it reflects reality.

    For example:
    Another reality issue that’s extremely annoying to liberals and progressives is chromosomal sex determination.

    The XX/XY sex determination system is found in humans. Females have two of the same kind of sex chromosome (XX), whereas males have two distinct sex chromosomes (XY). This chromosomal reality is seen as limiting, annoying, and an artifact of a patriarchal, chauvinistic society.

    So liberals and progressives want to change it.

You can satisfy your desire by claiming that you are transgender—that is, you’ve switched from one gender to another. Therefore, if one has XY chromosomes, he can behave as if he were an XXer.


    The REALITY is that gender is a continuum ranging from female to male and isn't the simplistic "XY and XX" that the writer seems to believe.

    An intersex human or other animal is one possessing any of several variations in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, sex hormones, or genitals that, according to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, "do not fit the typical definitions for male or female bodies".[1][2] Such variations may involve genital ambiguity, and combinations of chromosomal genotype and sexual phenotype other than XY-male and XX-female.[3][4]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intersex


    For example, a person may be born with an XX chromosomes, but with external genitalia that is "male".

    That gender identification is also a continuum ranging from female to male and not strictly determined by chromosome pairs or external genitalia makes perfect sense.

    Evidently it is the writer himself who believes that he can "alter reality".
