Anyone using "cis" to describe people that accept their biological gender/sex is someone that has fallen deep into the bizarre ideology of this acronym heavy community.

Has the Oxford Dictionary "fallen deep into bizarre ideology"? LOL

Rowling thinks trans people pose such an existential threat to women's rights that she's willing to side with the groups who fought against women's rights in the first place. Conservatives, unhinged religious zealots, nazis, anything is justifiable as long as trans people are defeated. What goes through her mind? She's become the villain in her own story.

They don't identify as "cis women"

Oxford could write they identify as a peanut, it doesn't mean that women or men identify as a peanut!

I know only one female that calls herself cis and she is a rabid menber of the alphabet community.

She is family and not a single if her all female siblings all gen Z will use "cis" not her cousins, parents, no one in my family, not a single other person I know will use it exempt the people I know in the trans community.

Here is how the community manipulates information.

"95% of the population identifies as cisgender"

This is the article tittle!

But if you actually look at the stats "cisgender" was never on the list of the census or poll.

Male and female were.

So the writer, the news service took it upon themselves to incert the term cisgender!

If directly give the choice of cisgender as an category less that 10% select it!

Wake up Daniel and stop drinking the Kool-Aid.

This is actually actively harming the cis women they supposedly "claim" to protect.

Anyone using "cis" to describe people that accept their biological gender/sex is someone that has fallen deep into the bizarre ideology of this acronym heavy community.

When did men calling themselves women and women calling themselves men, suddenly become "women" and "men" and those born as men and women suddenly lose these terms and became "cis-men and cis-women"?

Do those supporting this "Cis" stuff realize the backwards nature of all this.

Transgender don't like being called trans- woman or trans- man, they demanded to be referred to as just "man" and "woman".

But then decided to call all non transgender "Cis" to make sure to keep their special status separate from the natural born males and females.

Just think about that for a second! They said they wanted to be accepted in the regular community, accepted as men and women, then they created a new name to give the real men and women to separate themselves from the born female and male!

LGBTQ

Wait it is now:

LGBTQQIP2SA or 2SLGBTQIA+ or LGBTQQIP2SAA or something else as they keep adding more!

The LG made progress they became very much part of most western societies and openly accepted, it was a long fight for them to be able to "love" the person they wanted to.

That was what my friends and I marched for back in the 80s they knew they were men and women that were attracted to the same sex and all they wanted was to be able to "love" who they wanted.

This was achieved, even mostly accepted by the non LG Community.

But now along comes the rest and it is no long about loving someone and making a life together, it is about everything else but that!

Women's safety! Oh forget that, someone's feelings override that!

A 14 year old girl's right to undress in a changing room without having to worry or see male genitals is overridden by a boy/man's right to be there because they claim to be a girl.

The argument of the LGBTQ/ LGBTQQIP2SAA/LGBTQQIP2SA/2SLGBTQIA+ are victims of violence, etc...

Pales in comparison to the 1 in 5~6 women that will be sexually assaulted!

Putting a convicted rapist in a women's prison because he now identified as a woman, was the best example of an ideology gone off the rails.

I fully agree with Ms Rowlings

Daniel Radcliffe is indeed sad.

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

The biggest irony of JK Rowling and the GC movement is that by scrutinising trans people utilising rigid and arbitrary behavioural and aesthetical metrics (overanalysing their physical characteristics like shoulder build, jawline, etc) they are inadvertently engaging in the same kind of sexism that feminism fought against. If you don't look like the way they want you to look like, you are trans and not a real woman.

This is actually actively harming the cis women they supposedly "claim" to protect.

"Radcliffe responds logically to unhinged ramblings of a mad woman” would have been a better title for this article.

Debate, compromise and tolerance are central.

And obviously nuance is part of that.

BertiW....

What am I?

This whole issue resolves on this point.

You are what you consider you are.

Really?

I consider myself to be the King of England.

I consider myself to be Jesus.

You see how silly this argument is.

What you want to be, however much you really want it to be true is irrelevant to reality.

You are what you are not what you want to be.

Facts and biology trump your fee-fee's, Mr. Radcliffe.

(I hope the fourth word in that sentence doesn't trigger anyone. Actually, it's okay if it does.)

A man is an adult human male.

A woman is an adult human female.

Women's sports are for women.

Women's restrooms and locker rooms are for women.

Women's beauty pageants are for women.

Women's schools are for women.

If you have a penis, testicles, and Y-chromosomes, you're not a woman -- no matter how much you claim to be one, "feel" like one, or make yourself look like one. Thus, you're not eligible for participation in any of the things on the above list.

That's it.

Those are the facts. Be as "sad" as you want about it, but nobody should care about your feelings on this topic.

"It makes me really sad, ultimately," Radcliffe told the Atlantic, in an interview published this week.

What he should have said was, "She has her own views about this issue and I have mine. It makes me sad I haven't seen her in a while."

What am I?

This whole issue resolves on this point.

You are what you consider you are.

You can consider that you are a spiritual being, not restricted by gender.

Or you can consider that you are your body, male or female.

But these are your own subjective considerations.

But don't expect other people to agree with your subjective point of view.

If you were born with a male body and consider that you are female, you have to be prepared to run into some conflicting opinions.

And you cannot expect that people will use your "pronouns," as grammar is not part of your subjective reality, but an agreement with the rest of humanity. If your body is perceived to be male, you are likely to be referred to as "he," if perceived as female, "she."

May real women and girls like Rowling, Riley Gaines and others continue to stand up for their rights and defeat the misogynist bullies.

If you aren't born a woman , your never going to be an actual woman .

Stop it. You will hurt someones "feelings".

People should be free to call themselves whatever they want, male, female even a feline. But they have no right to force others to go along with their dreams.

If you aren't born a woman , your never going to be an actual woman . Why is that so hard to understand?

I don't know why things become so heated. Liberal democracy is always about finding a balance between the rights of its members. You cannot promote the rights of one individual or group at the expense of others. If a group or individual can show their rights are being infringed upon, their views have to be taken into account. Debate, compromise and tolerance are central. Nobody, either on the left or right, can run roughshod over the rest without undermining the principles of liberal democracy, in which case, they should say clearly it is not for them and some brand of authoritarianism is better.

I'm with Rowling on this one.

1 ( +12 / -11 )

Rowling has been at the forefront, arguing that transgender rights endanger women. She has pointed to claims that transgender women entering female-designated changing rooms, toilets or prisons causes harm.

Rowling has been at the forefront of stating reality. Transgender women are transgender women not women.

It really is just that simple.

I find it sad that Mr Radcliffe doesn’t care about the rights of real women. What a clown.
