Well it's quicker than saying, 'It's not on Amazon, Apple, Disney, Sky, Iplayer, ITV Hub, All 4', etc, etc.

I live in Crawley, which is not the best place in the world and has its fair share of simpletons. However, in the last few weeks I've spent a fair bit of time in a place called Corringham, in Essex, due to work. There must be some dodgy shit in the water here because a good 60% of the residents are thicker than treacle. Very odd and after a while, very annoying.

pallet 24-03-2022 02:06 PM

Corringham and Stanford no hope are strange places indeed. Basically reclaimed maeshland.

Agreed but surprised a redacted version is not back up. It was, as Maz said a good educational thread with wide participation. Plus I still need to call WCB out on his poor maths.

Yes. Even if we take your correction to be true (which I was happy to do) there were still (at least) 6.

Male het
Female het
Male gay
Female gay
Bisexual (male and female)
Asexual (male and female)

Male and female hets, gays, bisexuals and asexuals are not the same gender so discounting your correction there are still at least 6 but probably 8 as far as the science is concerned.

There were only two people doing that. The rest of it was the normal robust but relatively polite conversation we normally see. Redacting the shit and putting the thread back up seems to me to be sensible (but I appreciate itís an unpaid job and a sunny Saturday so if it were me I would do it when I could be arsed to do so).

My gay friends would strongly disagree that bisexuals are a gender. In fact they would reject any such a rigid taxonomy ; it's a continuum, they would say.

Iím fairly sure that a gay male attracted to only males is distinct sexually from a male attracted to both females and males. I do appreciate your friends perspective that being gay encompasses bisexuals in a day to day outlook but scientifically speaking their sexual preferences are quite distinct and of different genders.

The rigidity of this approach ignores the fact that people can and do change in their sexuality as necessity dictates.


Take the well annotated example of those male heterosexual long-term prisoners, who turn to homosexuality as an outlet whilst they are incarcerated. They move along, (and most often back upon release) a continuum ; they do not change 'gender'.

Maz 26-03-2022 12:05 PM

And in the animal world of course there are many examples of animals changing gender when necessary.

I knew you would cop out when I asked you to name 7 of the easily noticeable 15 genders. If they are so easy, why pick 2 we all know in heterosexuality, you could have easily named some other ones, to bring our attention to them, as we are not talking about the established 2 genders when we are having this conversation.

I donít disagree that gender can be fluid and people (as well as other animals) can move between the genders. From a science perspective Iím not sure why this would disqualify titling the genders people move about in?

Maz 26-03-2022 12:23 PM

Because such a system tends to suggest absolutes, when such rigidity does not exist.

Does it? Surely it just highlights the fluidity of gender. One minute you can be male het and given a different circumstance you can be male gay before becoming male het again. The chances are someone that does that is bi but social indoctrination prevents them from accepting their own gender.

The titles arenít wrong as such.

I donít think itís right or wrong to be honest as I also think you can be primarily het but a bit bi. Or gay and a bit by. You could be asexual but still have sex. The titles are simply the titles but there is certainly crossover and fluidity between them.

Your mention of 'fluidity' made me think. I suppose it is possible for H2O to be water, to be solid (ice), or to be a gas, all in different circumstances.


And there the labelling does help us. I suspect that I am resisting the notion that people should be labelled, however ; let them identify where they themselves are on the spectrum, yes, but let's resist the temptation to assign everyone we meet to one of your fifteen (?) genders. I don't know what it achieves.

Asexual (male and female)

Male and female hets, gays, bisexuals and asexuals are not the same gender so discounting your correction there are still at least 6 but probably 8 as far as the science is concerned.

Every so often the BBS throws up a post that actually makes you think (rather than just think the poster is an idiot :)).

I try and stay out of this debate as I think it's an incredibly complex area full of subtlety in terms of how people are, how they choose to identify and how society is.

I notice you've defined gender there based on sexual orientation (if that's the right phrase). Is that the definition? Genuinely interested.

Ah, maybe that's my problem. Should the two - gender and orientation - be kept separate?

BA tannoy message as I was boarding a flight that all passengers should wear a face mask and one would be provided if required. Air crew not wearing them so within 30 minutes loads of people stop wearing them.

The thread should be reopened as it’s clear posters want to talk about it, just ban the ones that threaten violence, why should the debate stop? It has just moved on to this thread.

That would be my take on it (fwiw)

Agreed. Debates even are needed even if heated for us all to test our views, why was it removed?

Except for a certain mod who fires off personal attacks when the inconsistencies in his views are highlighted, before shutting down debate completely. Live and let cancel, I say.

LOL :love:

Yes I believe it is. Sex defines male and female whereas gender defines orientation as well as (more traditionally) male and female.

This thread being hi-jacked by the political brigade. They were given their own forum and they still wanted more. God forbid they're going to go for Memory Lane next. They screwed up the Biden thread now they're on here screwing up one of the few decent threads left. Start a new thread and leave the rest of us to moan about the price of potatoes in Liddle's.

Yeah, fair enough, John.

I am annoyed by the constant utter shitness of everything about our local Co-op if that helps?

I also predict that post #44,501 will be slightly irksome as well.
