Quote from: The Late Satoru Iwata on May 28, 2022, 10:06:41 PM(Edited because obviously Bragg was commenting on the Nazis obsession with subjugating Jews but it remains true that one of their early book-burning targets was research into transgender people and gender dysphoria. I should have just left it as it was but it felt like it was inviting derailing responses about Bragg's intention which would be a detriment to the thread)
Quote from: chip on May 28, 2022, 11:58:05 PMI read a tweet once saying "I can't think of one good reason why a man would need to be a gynaecologist", and have to say I have a hard time disagreeing.
Quote from: Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse on May 29, 2022, 03:12:56 AMWe-ell one good reason (aside from the money) is that sometimes if a particular job is associated strongly with women, it's perceived to be less important and therefore lower paid. More male gynaecologists means more male doctors specialising in female reproductive health, which raises the profile of female reproductive health as a field.

Quote from: Better Midlands on May 29, 2022, 09:28:05 AMRegarding Marina's comment, isn't that exactly what Billy is saying? and regarding Helen, his point is GCs have been going on about differentiating by biology for years.
QuoteThat story centres on a TV evangelist. Another one is about a a film-maker. There's one about an actor, another that starts off with a talk radio host. One happens at a music festival and there's another one about an online comedian. So, when we talk about the 'culture' wars, is that because everything that's fought out now in the public sphere has blurred into or is indistinguishable from entertainment?"I never noticed that connection between the different protagonists of the show until you just said it and you're absolutely right. Yeah, there's a dysfunctional relationship between these different power bodies. When it comes to social media and the mainstream media, it was so interesting, when Twitter started, your namesake, Graham Linehan, was the person who got me into Twitter. He said – this was 2008 – 'You've got to join Twitter, it's the place where no one fights'."That's Graham 'banned by Twitter' Linehan."Yes. But back in 2008, we couldn't have imagined what would happen. I think the mainstream media first thought, 'Oh, we'll just ignore it and it will go away'. And then it didn't go away, so then the mainstream thought, 'We'll control it. We'll do these articles on who are the 10 best tweeters in the media.' That was the snake coming into the Garden of Eden, because suddenly it became performative. And then, when when social media completely outsmarted and beat the mainstream media, the mainstream became like the nerdy kid in the school playground, sucking up to the school bully. As journalists we're supposed to be fearless, but when we saw people getting torn apart on social media, we shut up. We didn't say anything, because we were scared. Which is the opposite of the bravery journalists are supposed to display."
Quote from: racecar bed indy 500 on May 29, 2022, 10:40:28 AMYes that's Billy's exact point but GCs are obscenely obtuse. Its like any other far righter in that it is purposely so. Like that quote, I believe it was Sartre but I could be remembering incorrectly, about the anti-semite knowing their word games are meaningless and the purpose is to offend and enrage people.

Quote from: somersetchris on May 29, 2022, 11:32:50 AMStaniland does this all the time. She's either deliberately misrepresenting what people are saying, or she's just thick.
Quote from: Jean-Paul SartreNever believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.
