Yeah, better privacy for all involved. But I'm sure teachers/principles are going to object on 'discipline' grounds or some stupid shit.

There is a 3rd one already. It has a wheelchair symbol on it. So in fact it would be a 4th bathroom if we are not to say that the sexually confused are not disabled.

Agreed. Authoritarians will be authoritarians.

It's intended to stimulate Autonomic Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR), a.k.a. braingasm, but I thought she'd enjoy the content as well.

I do like a good quality makeup brush... mine do feel magical in their own right whether run across my face or just across the back of my hand to test for quality before buying.

That said, watching the first 10 minutes of the video, the whole thing just seems too corny to me.


But wait, why are you looking up stuff about makeup? See, I told you that we were inhabiting the same body... keep removing the doubt!

No, really, I'm not BK... really. seriously.

That's a start. It's just a book though, a controversial book, and not settled science.

There is some statistical variation between populations of men and women but when you look at the individual it's actually rather hard to find traits in "female" minds which don't also exist in "male" minds. It's hard to separate learned behaviours from inherited behaviours. It's hard even to define your terms much of the time.

Take aggression, for example. We're sure that men are more aggressive than women, right? Aggression takes many forms. Physical, verbal, subtle passive-aggressive behaviours, gossip and social sabotage... Even if we could make comprehensive measurements of aggression, we wouldn't know which of these behaviours were learned and which were innate. It's just as likely that women would have learned to hide their aggression as it is that they have less of it. Also, every type of aggressive behaviour which we might identify will be observed in both sexes. Differences in aggression between men and women, if they exist, would show up as two overlapping bell curves with offset peaks but you could not identify the gender of any individual mind based solely on a measurement of aggressive behaviour.

There's an enormous amount of confirmation-bias in this subject. If, for example, we encounter men who do not conform to the gender-specific behaviours expected of them we don't recalibrate our view of gender variation accordingly. Instead we say they're not "real men". They're sissy.

It's no great surprise if some are conditioned to believe they are women trapped in men's bodies and thus develop body dysmorphia.

We are?

I'm really not sure what planet you are from if you don't know how different the female mind is from the male mind. Yes, there is plenty of scientific proof that shows various differences. If you actually care about the subject perhaps you should research it instead of publicly embarrassing yourself on the internet.

"Male" and "female" overlap to such a degree that it simply isn't meaningful to talk about "male" and "female" minds, except in very specific circumstances.

What do you believe are unique features of the female mind?

Tell them to use cubicles and if he feels bad, so what? That's the nature of being a kid.

Oh, and no-one gets raped at school

Statistically, I agree, although it has happened at least once in the U.S.. Apparently it happens at the supermarket in the U.K..

It seems more to be an issue of people protesting their child having to use the same restroom as "some pervert/deviant" or somebody of the opposite sex. That's why I asked earlier what the original logic is behind having separate bathrooms for males and females.

If it's not about safety, then is to avoid temptation (i.e. consensual sexual activity in the restrooms)? Public restrooms have historically been a locus of male-on-male homosexual activity. If it's to avoid temptation, then what new combinations and permutations must be addressed? If it's not about either, then what is it about?

This does seem to be the issue.

What I don't understand is why people still can't seem to wrap their puny brains around the concept that a person that is so open about their gender and sexuality is absolutely the LAST place you will find a lurking predator.

I mean, hello!?!?!? Is this fucking thing even on?!?!?!

If someone is calling attention to themselves and trying to carve out a unique niche within society just to survive, what do you think the odds are they are trying to "sneak one past you"?!?!?!?

No, it's people protesting shit because they have too much time on their hands. They all used to be members of the CND and no-one cares about that so they have turned to transgender shitters

Have you ever been in a women's restroom? It's disgusting. They are pigs worse than men.
