    Well, I wouldn't go that far either.

    Here's a video for you shav. It's a debate between two professors, one of whom is a transsexual in favor of Canada's law forcing people to use made up pronouns, and the other is Jordan Peterson who refuses to be compelled. It's about 16 minutes. I'll bet you come out agreeing more with Jordan Peterson.

    Actually I don’t.
    But I’m allergic to him.

    There are more important things in life to get upset about than this.

    Yes, like men not listening to women who complain of sexual assault.

    We listen. It helps their case when they don't lie, can actually remember the details of their claims, and are not refuted by supposed witnesses.

    Apparently, no, it doesn't.

    Are you so allergic to Jordan Peterson that you agree with Canada's law compelling the use of made up pronouns?

    Well. Shove a stick up my bum, twirl me around gently and call me a kebab... but this surely has to be madness?

    Woman spelled womxn, because woman is sort of man-orientated.

    How do you pronounce it?
    Well, seemingly as wo-minx.
    Now, if that doesn’t get the old sexist fox in you cackling, I don’t know what will!

    Anyhoooooo... I’m obviously getting too old to keep functioning in this madness.
    I knew a lesbian who changed her namd from 'Amanda' to 'Awomda' ... bloody ferals!!

    I certainly won’t go that far.

    But do you agree with changing language like this?
    its just a figure of speech, please excuse any unintended offence.

    And no. No I dont agree with changing language like this.
    Is this a deplorable state of affairs ? yes.
    Is it surprising? Hardly.

    Its all symptomatic of deeper issues

    It's funny because it could also be seen as "man" came from "woman".

    If you are ever raped I hope you have a good memory for detail.

    Well, it makes more sense...

    Think about it - every single man on earth came from a woman!

    Shouldn't they then avoid speaking a Germanic language altogether?

    Actually, when a traumatic or happy or otherwise salient event happens to someone, especially when they're still a child, it's common to only remember the event itself, and not the circumstances leading up to or occurring after the event. I can recall many instances like that in my own childhood, and also even events that happened only a few years ago.

    I can remember when, as a kid, some brat threw a can at me out in the schoolyard, and it hit me square in the forehead. I remember the blood going down my face, and I know a teacher put me in her car and drove me somewhere to get bandaged up. But I don't remember the bandaging at all, or getting into the teacher's car, or "how I got home."

    Of course, if an event is traumatic enough, it's even possible to suppress all memory of the event itself.

    Dr. Ford's testimony was entirely credible, not least because she doesn't have a superhuman, photographic memory of the minutiae surrounding what she did after Kavanaughty's bungling attempt at rape.

    So no. You don't listen. At all. Your selfish political motives inform your every thought and feeling, at least as you choose to reveal them in this forum, and for that I feel (slightly) sorry for you.
