    But please, that's what their life is.

    Are they to have no purpose at all??

    I'd agree that a lot of this nonsense is coming from academics, unfortunately those academics have easy access to the young minds of the kids they are teaching/indoctrinating from the first day the children start school. A lot of academics and businesses and medics have learned to tow the line because dissent often means being hounded out of your job and out of your home by lunatics who call themselves anti fascists.

    I know, that's why I made it. I don't really care a great deal one way or the other, I don't want to give those with a definite axe to grind any leeway, on the other hand, I'm sort of with you on the last part.

    I've been called many insulting things in my life, most of them untrue and to be fair a lot of them on this site. I've rarely complained about those unless it has impinged on me in some way.

    It is ironic though that those who start threads here wailing about how their rights have been curtailed tend to be those that seem to want to restrict the rights of everyone else in the real world.

    Do I think it is silly having twenty different labels for gender orientation? Possibly, but it's no skin off my nose to acknowledge someone if it's a big deal to them. Much in the same way if someone tells me they're from Cavan not Monaghan, it's no big deal for me to adjust how I refer to them. If they threatened to sue me because I got it wrong in either case then I would find that both a silly and extreme reaction.

    I’d say a certain poster here, that you know and that I know, as the brudder says, will probably cum in their pants, when they read that complete and utter fu€king nonsense.

    Canadians make US Citizens look normal.

    Keen students of history will recall that the decline of the Roman Empire is generally marked from the point at which the Romans grew more accepting of people with non-traditional sexualities and gender identities...

    Those twisted identity categorisation ad nauseam fu€ks shouldn’t be let within a mile of a child.
