    In my opinion, it is progressives who are most forcefully pushing the current PC conversation. It is progressives who are generally pushing cancel culture onto people with thoughts and expressions...

    Re: Boys Can Have Periods Too!

    Your interpretation of the definition you provided is poor. If someone is of the strong belief that they are the wrong gender, then that is a sign of discomfort. There needn't be a specific or...

    Do all progressives believe in socialism? In trans-gender rights? How do you determine you are a progressive if you cannot define it? I have my opinion of what a progressive is, but clearly our...

    Re: Politcal Correctness

    I think modern PC is largely a left phenomenon. If we went back to the early 80's and prior, it was the right that was censoring books and limiting speech. The pendulum has certainly swung though. ...

    Re: Boys Can Have Periods Too!

    I see this thread has morphed into more of a general tg conversation. That's cool. Here is my question on gender and tg'ism in general.

    First, I feel like I am being baited. However, I don't really care so I'll answer it. Sometimes. I think without looking at a specific instance or case at a specific time, it is impossible to say.
