    Well here we are again with me saying both conservatives and liberals might be playing fast and loose with science, based entirely on personal bias.

    Personally, I'm more concerned about warped science that causes problems in the climate, not what people want to call themselves.

    As always, there's a fine line. I saw a BBC documentary once about people who "knew" they should have been born amputees and were anxious to find a doctor who would remove their hands. Is that freedom, or is that a problem?

    Nah, by that time, there will probably be laws forcing people to only identify as male or female.

    Talk about your first world problems...We aren't living in 1984. We are living in A Brave New World.

    That is highly questionable, but I can't see how it compares to people identifying with more genders than the traditional male or female and calling themselves what they want.

    You don't see a similarity there? In both cases the person "knows" they were born with the wrong body?

    Male and female is not some evil "traditional" value.

    There shouldn't be a law it should be normality

    Well both of you can stop worrying. We tend to forget, this is a very small section of the population. Do they deserve to be defended against bullying? 100% yes. Should they be allowed to serve their country? Um, duh! Should society be upended for them? That I'm not so sure of.

    There may be a similarity, but there is definitely a difference too.

    I belive anyone in the lgbtqia+ community deserves to be treated like any one else but susie who hasn't had any attention in a few days and decided to change her gender to microwave gets f*ck all respect from me. I see them people as attention seekers

    The curious thing is that political correctness is often ridiculed for supposedly trying to "tell people what they can and can't say, think, and feel." In the case of gender identity, however, political correctness seems to be a problem because it allows people the freedom to say, think, and feel as they please.

    Then ignore them instead of worrying about it.

    I say political correctness is very much not what allows anyone freedom or respect. I think perhaps you notice that conservatives don't like the term PC, therefore you assume it must be something good.

    Not sure how you got threat from what I said.

    Or how could they "upend" society?

    Well I tried to bring up science, but we fell back on blaming the right. Just saying. ;)
