All jokes aside, I know a lot of people on both sides of the political spectrum like lotr. It has to be exhausting to see politics in absolutely everything in the world, right down to dumb sh** like comic book movies.

For every crazy old man yelling about stuff like this, there's at least one purple haired chick yelling about gender pronouns on a college campus. Two sides of the same coin really. With both thinking the other is the enemy.

So why does it bother you that it bugs me? It's like you can't stand the idea of people expressing a different world view than you subscribe to.

I guess it's the curse of having lived a while and experienced and observed a lot. But one big difference between a crazy old guy like me and your typical SJW is I don't care how they live their life as long as they don't tread on me & mine. They on the other hand want total group think. They are committed to rooting out behavior AND even thoughts that they deem to be offensive or unacceptable.

But I do envy you a bit as it must feel nice floating above it all. I'm just not wired that way.

you seems to mistake people critiquing your agenda for them demanding you change.


I haven't come across anyone in this thread who cares how you live your life, but that doesn't mean they won't chime in about what's wrong with it and why they disagree. A message board is for discourse afterall, no?



And speaking for myself, I don't find your opinion offensive or unacceptable. I do find it incorrect, and rooted in antiquated thoughts of America where sexism and racism (and I don't mean to imply at all that you're racist) were accepted. It's not the 1940's anymore. It was accepted back then, even if it maybe wasn't right in hindsight.

Society has evolved. That's not a bad thing.

People like you spout off just don't tread on me, but these movies affect you in absolutely no way. You're just being negative because society's perceptions are changing about others and you are insecure so you feel it threatens your standing. Like Trump, you need others to lose to make yourself feel like a winner. It's just pathetic is all.

So it's Trump's fault. Got it.

You're making quite the assumption here because society's "evolution" may or may not be a good thing.

As for the rest of your post let me see if I get what you're saying: You don't find my opinion "offensive" or "unacceptable" but it is "incorrect" & "rooted in racism & sexism" but you're not implying I'm a racist. Does that mean I'm a sexist?

He made a comparison between you and Trump, that's not blaming Trump. In truth, there's no one to blame because there isn't an issue.

No, sadly, you were insecure long before you became fixated on Trump.

My guess would be his answer is yes, and he wouldn't have to look any further than your first sentence in this post as evidence of that.

So you think you would win in a fight with women MMA fighters?

Out of all the violence, bloodshed, and physics-defying acrobratics in the Kill Bill movies... lotr is the most outraged by the fact that Uma Thurman, a woman, is kicking the butts of some guys

Something I've been wondering about lately. Let's say that we(the human race) are somehow evolving to become some androgynous animal where gender lines are blurred and don't play as pivotal of a role. What would be the inherent negatives of something like this?

I'm not saying that's where we are headed, but it would sort of make sense if the point of this whole thing is to continually better ourselves as a species. Look at everything going on today and all of the issues and controversy that surround race and gender, for example. It seems like moving past these things may allow us to focus on more important things here and in the universe.

Aside from reproduction, why is gender necessary? And if technology advances to the point somewhere down the line where traditional reproductive methods are 100% obsolete, then what reason would we have to keep gender around?

Interesting ideas RM and certainly a plausible future. Correct me if I'm wrong but what you're suggesting is that the recent radical cultural changes regarding the perception of sex differences in the West is acting as a sort of mutation trigger that shifts the human genome and alters evolutionary selection. In fact the theory of evolution requires the action of periodic "mutations" to send genetics in a new direction.

I highlighted "West" because the evolution towards an androgynous human future so far has only been seen culturally and is almost exclusively confined to the "Western" world. The reason I say this is that to date it's only been a cultural phenomena not a physiological one (with the exception of the possible reduction in male Testosterone levels in the 1st world possibly due to pollution). Bottom line is there has been no widespread physiological evidence that we are moving towards androgyny.

But you ask beyond reproduction to what use are sex differences. I would submit that one very important aspect of sex differences is the ability of the larger & stronger male to defend the family unit from aggressors. Now if the whole world were simultaneously heading towards androgyny we might not need male aggression for protection. But I doubt that Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Pagans, Fundamentalist Christians, and a billion or so Chinese are blissfully anticipating their coming androgyny. My guess is they won't be so inclusive in their embrace of this idea.

Now I know I'll catch hell for saying this but as you postulate an evolutionary move towards androgyny I'm saying it might be that such a path is a genetic dead end, an evolutionary branch that withers and dies off. Sure the West has sufficient Industry & technological mastery to remain invulnerable for the next few decades but what about after that? Fifty to a hundred years from now is a LONG TIME historically and who knows what that future holds. Would we be able to protect our little bit of androgynous nirvana from the barbarians at the gates.

I was watching the Nat Geo channel yesterday and they had a special on Tigers. And it was interesting to note that the safety of the mother and especially her cubs depended on the effectiveness of their father in protecting them from other marauding males. Males who will kill the cubs if they can drive the father off. Now I know it's an extreme example but we are all just animals at the core.

Every day I take cold showers, eat a steak and a bag of almonds for breakfast, do heavy sets of deadlifts, and sleep without a pillow. My testosterone is borderline illegal and I'll be damned if I become some androgynous beta.
