  1. Your arguments are not comparable. I’m not saying transsexualism isn’t real and to my perspective neither is JK Rowling. I completely acknowledge that transgendered people align their gender to the opposite biological/physical sex due to reasons not completely understood by modern science. I completely agree that they should not be discriminated for that either. Stating that transgendered people are transgendered is not discriminatory though. It’s simply stating a fact? Can you elaborate on what a “real” woman is and who “they” is that hates trans women?
  2. In this instance I do agree with JK Rowling. I respect every trans person’s right to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them. I’d march with you if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans. At the same time, my life has been shaped by being female. I do not believe it’s hateful to say so. The idea that women like me, who’ve been empathetic to trans people for decades, feeling kinship because they’re vulnerable in the same way as women - ie, to male violence - ‘hate’ trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences - is a nonsense. If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth. Rather than trying to force the concept of male or female on trans people, I feel like we should be acknowledging and accepting them for who they are. Statements such as "trans women are real women" are asinine because it links gender identity to femininity or masculinity. What defines a "real" woman then? What does it mean to be trans? As a trans-female are you only a "woman" if you display feminine traits? Or does it mean that you've had gender reassignment surgery? Neither is a condition by which a person needs to justify the gender pronoun they choose. I struggle to see what the problem is with JK Rowling's position? I genuinely don't know so I would really like to hear from any trans members on the forum to share their views on the topic.
  3. You deserve the shit show that is America. Hilary wasn't perfect. Neither is Bernie or Biden or any other democrat. But this mentality is why you ended up with Trump. You might even be a Trump voter. You might be happy with the way he has lead your country. The rest of the world sees what a joke it is.
  4. Honestly I'm speechless that this is where we are. It is a very clear mandate for Brexit though so I no longer have any sympathy for the UK. They clearly made their choice. Let them crash out with a no deal and they can deal with the consequences. I wonder how long until Ireland and Scotland seek independence.
  5. Same @Jazzy Jan. He's "real" and "telling it like it is". Basically he gives them an excuse for their ignorance. "PC gone mad" "Need to go back to traditional values" that's what he represents to people. I never realised how many Australians think Fox News is a legitimate news source. Any time I discuss something negative about Trump I always get people quoting Fox News and how the democrats are lying and a bunch of conspiracy theories about them and Obama. They will choose whatever suits their beliefs and anything that goes against them is considered fake news. Blows my mind. They crazy thing is that in Australia they happily accept things like Medicare and minimum wages and workers rights and public holidays but at the same time support Trump who would strip all of those rights from them.
  6. Is there really any point to this anymore? It's clear the US public will happily make any excuse for Trump. The impeachment is all "fake" and a witch hunt. The Democrats are the real criminals. Get ready for another 4 years of him. I really can't comprehend the world anymore.
  7. I am also surprised about the result. I thought that Labor had it in the bag. I suppose they did too. While Adani played a massive role in QLD I think the other policies that hurt them considerably were the proposed changes to negative gearing and capital gains tax. Also changes to franking credits for retirees. Australians have a fetish for property investment and people who I know who’ve ALWAYS voted Labor voted Liberal this election. I on the other hand voted Labor for the first time in my life as my priorities were more social / environmental than economic. I also thought Labor put forward some innovative initiatives and would’ve been more likely to pursue better longer term economic changes (rather than short term ones like the tax cuts promised by Libs.).
  8. Can we all just agree that the rest of the world does not give a fuck about the US anymore. The Trump presidency, the gun laws, the healthcare, the border wall, climate action, every single story that comes out of the US is a joke. A reality star president who has turned the country into a reality show soap opera. For now the US is on par with third world countries like North Korea. Most of us can only hope this idiocy doesn't spread further.
  9. I was extremely happy with the result over the weekend! I hope the federal election is a repeat of what we saw.
  10. Fox News host tells Trump world sees him as 'beacon for repression' https://www.theage.com.au/world/north-america/fox-news-host-tells-trump-world-sees-him-as-beacon-for-repression-20181119-p50gua.html
  11. I found this quite disturbing: https://www.theage.com.au/politics/victoria/the-religious-minority-seizing-power-in-the-liberal-party-20180601-p4ziyq.html
  12. I don't recall them being so bad but over the last few years (around the start of Abbott's PMship) they've all gone extreme right. I feel like we are turning into the US with how polarized we are becoming. The Liberal party has become a cesspool on par with One Nation. For the first time in my life I'll be voting Labor at both State and Federal elections.
  13. Honestly who the fuck is Alan Jones. Cunt doesn't own the Opera House, who's he to dictate what is shown on it and what isn't. These talk back radio hosts need to fuck off.
