Not sure why this is a surprise. Parent's rights are long gone. They have steadily been eroding them for years by targeting unpopular groups - anyone they can persecute and strip of their rights without an outcry - this is just part of an ongoing pattern.


First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Not a surprise. More a link to show that these opinions are not rooted in bigotry like some here have been trying to claim.

Love that quote. I may steal it from you sometime.

I do not read Dutch but the lool on the women's faces paints a thousand words. Fellow transgender people ... this needs to stop. Please join me in calling this out as wrong.

Nah, whoever thought about letting transgenders compete with women is brilliant. Now women can confidently say "fkit, wherever I try to succeed there will be some transgender that will be better than I am, let me rather do something that I will be best at, happiest, and none of these freakshows can ever do... have a baby and be a central pillar in a good family".

Gotta love it. Ill take the side of the transgender freaks above the femanist freaks any day.

Any Sarah McCockles or Jolene Ballencocks competing in Wimbledon this year?

In the 1970s a cousin of mine, Paula Grossman, became one of the first people in America to undergo sex-reassignment surgery. As Paul Monroe Grossman, Cousin Paula had been a beloved music teacher in New Jersey. She was fired after her surgery, and she subsequently lost her lawsuit for wrongful termination based on sex discrimination (though a court did rule that she could receive a disability pension). The story was all over the news back then; I’d like to think it would have ended differently today.
The Israelites took the transgender trope from their surrounding cultures and wove it into their own sacred scripture. The four-Hebrew-letter name of God, which scholars refer to as the Tetragrammaton, YHWH, was probably not pronounced “Jehovah” or “Yahweh,” as some have guessed. The Israelite priests would have read the letters in reverse as Hu/Hi — in other words, the hidden name of God was Hebrew for “He/She.” Counter to everything we grew up believing, the God of Israel — the God of the three monotheistic, Abrahamic religions to which fully half the people on the planet today belong — was understood by its earliest worshipers to be a dual-gendered deity.

Stupid Talmudists. God is genderless. Humans just tend to attribute maleness to God because maleness tend to be associated with leadership, fatherhood and strength.

LoL no, God is associated to the male gender because males wrote the scriptures. You think men from that age would be thoughtful enough to make God a woman?

You cannot see my face; for no one shall see me and live.
Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by , that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by : And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.”

Quote mine something from the Talmud for a change. Don't be a one trick pony

Well I would find a female God more believable than a male God.
To assign a gender to God is stupid, but if I had to choose one it'll be female.
That is because you are one big .... err, cat. Your lipstick and tampons fell out your handbag...

Well no, if we believe the ridiculous scripture that God made us in their image, then the gender that gives life directly is female. Hence you would expect God to be a woman.

But, if you mistakenly overread what I said earlier, the entire premise for an almighty being to have a gender is a bit stupid. At the very least then we expect that God should have a female companion if he's male (because otherwise why would God have a gender?), but there is none. There's a ton of holes in the scriptures if you start poking.

Used basic extrapolation. You're welcome to retort and discuss why you think God should be a man instead. That's what the discussion is about, not acting like a leftist and throwing insults to avoid engaging with the subject matter.
