'Misgendering' now a punishable offense in schools

The Left has opened up a new front in the culture war over transgenderism: punishing children who do not adhere to the tenets of left-wing gender ideology.

misgendering used to be calling people the opposite gender they were born with

That is partly why I support actual transsexuals and not those merely pretending to be the other sex, and those pretending they are “other.”

This needs to be sued into oblivion. No one should have the power to change the English language against the will of most of it’s speakers. This is a hill to die on.

it is really

if you can’t call out obvious lies like this then any lies can spread

funny the people so concerned witg “misinformation” are so ok with biological falsehoods being protected by law

This even harms actual transsexuals who work hard to assimilate into the other gender and who have a rugged identity of being the other gender from early in life.

Here is an example. Someone living as a woman was in court. They asked the judge to refer to them with female pronouns. A decade or 2 ago, that would have been seen as a reasonable request. But the judge said no, that it would set a bad precedent since then they’d have to refer to people with made-up pronouns by those too.

As for the “they/them” stuff, that should only be allowed if they have Dissociative Disorder. Those are people who truly believe there are multiple people inside of them.

Oh shit where you been my spotted lady, haven’t seen you in forever

I’ve been around. Nothing much has been happening in my communities. A few days back, I lost connection for a couple of days. That had a silver lining. When they came out to investigate, it turned out to be just corrupt settings on their end. They never came inside. The guy cleaned the IR transceiver piece, but other than that, it was on their end.

Sometime in the past, they did a complimentary upgrade for all their 30/30 customers and gave them 500/500. Well, I never got that. But after they reconfigured everything, I did. So not only did they get me back up and operating, I ended up with about 15 times the speed I had before. While Speedtest didn’t show 500/500, it showed 453/475 or something, which was still much faster. I could probably do some tweaking and show a little better. At least when POE or other games update, it won’t be as painful of a wait. A game’s resources should never be 30 Gb in size. Really, when programmers introduce that much bloat, a judge should sentence them to program on a 6502 or Z80 architecture for a year, or some other retro system.

No idea what you just said but sound cool

30/30 means 30 Mb/s in both directions. So 500/500 is 500 Mb/s in both directions. So in the process of figuring out why I had an outage, they somehow also fixed whatever issue that prevented me from getting upgraded to 500/500 like the other customers.

And POE is Path of Exile, a game. It shouldn’t have a 30 Gb game resources file. That’s just bad coding.

POE Path of Exile

Funny story, I know someone who took down their website by accident for a few hours one time. Can’t give details though.

And? That makes me want to say what one hooker asked her client. “Where’s the rest of it?”

Post anything, all are welcome. No one can kick your post here. Do what you like. @WiggleHard bans nothing and exiles nobody (Dont doxx wolfballs users, no posting of porn/nudes or foot fetish material unless it involves political scandals, no ads for sex sites or dating sites; do that on your own time, no solicitation for pyramid scams, no posting job advertisements unless from official job sites, no posts supporting pedophilia, not all love is love) also: (we cannot allow violations of the patriot act concerning how we speak, no calls for violence, suggesting you are personally harming someone ect. These things are not free speech protected by law but actually against the law and could get the website shut down.) (no spam posting, especially spam posting of what could be considered symbols of hate) examples: guy posting nazi flag 5 times in one day, guy posting “whitey is the devil over and over, im going to use my best judgement on this one rule)
