Somewhere along the line, some parents of HS girls are going to sue and win a major lawsuit, which will put an end to this.

Transgenders are still generating male hormones regardless of how many surgeries they get. They need to have their own classification.

I've been getting a kick out of the Prep HIV drug commercial that says "people who were assigned female at birth" should not take this drug. :lol: :dunce:

Is there really an argument that gender I.D. and sex are the same thing? I mean outside of a few confused conks who secretly wonder what dick tastes like?

While we're on gender, my high school has two chicks on the wrestling team, wrestling in the two lowest weight classes. We've won something like six state championships in a row.

Poor guys on the other teams are probably too worried about not getting a boner or not pussy grabbing to focus. It's a weird thing, no matter how progressive you are. Having a 16 year old boy have to press his dick all over a 16 year old chick and try to think strategy at the same time is quite an order.

I raced a whole season in which a professional woman cyclist raced in our races. She wanted the tougher competition to train for the World Championships.

She fucking lapped me in one race!!

Are you saying that guys wrestling press their dicks all over each other? I knew that this was the gayest sport ever! :nod:

Iowa started a HS girls wrestling program this year with its own state championship. Previously there have been some girls wrestling with the boys. A few years ago one girl made it to state in a low weight class and her first round opponent at state forfeited. He came from a very religious family and he felt it was wrong for a guy to be wrestling a girl.

That's one part of it. The other is trying to explain to your angry black dad why you got pinned by a white chick. Here's one of our girls doing just that. You know that kid got his ass whipped when he got home :lol:

HotAir reporting on a recent Pop Mech article on AATIP and those flying tic tacs, and some shocking details about the program.


https://hotair.com/archives/jazz-shaw/2 ... on-secret/

I find this fascinating... I am a firm believer in the Drake Equation but also in the merits of the Fermi Paradox

I think that people like Carl Sagan were correct- that based on the laws of physics that are known to us, it is exceedingly unlikely that we would ever be visited by biological beings from other solar systems. The times involved even relativistic travel speeds would just be too much to contemplate.

But what if these are drones? Dispatched millions of years ago by civilizations or entities playing the long game? Maybe in anticipation of future ability to travel firsthand?

And why haven’t we heard these other civilizations... when they were only as advanced as we now are, and were broadcasting their own TV signals into space?

Could it be that when they are on the cusp of being able to achieve two way commo outside their own solar systems, or at least observe the signatures of other civilizations that they receive a “visit” from these flying tic tacs as prelude to some kind of great reveal? Something like, “We see you are about to join the club, so let us tell you the rules: the first rule of advanced civilization club is you dont talk about advanced civilization club.”

They give us quantum communications so we can broadcast in an undetectable way so that we are hidden from less advanced civilizations, and then allow us to continue to develop until we are ready for the next step. The Chinese are working on quantum communications tech. Rumor has it they can do it out to about 100 miles. We are talking about a real life Ansible here. How did they develop this? They don’t do anything that they haven’t copied from us or Russia, so what gives? They can hardly make motorcycles that don’t fall apart after a couple years and they’re now doing quantum commo? Hm

This whole scenario was dreamed up by Carl Sagan in Contact, so it isn’t new. But it certainly makes sense at some levels.

Anyway, fascinating stuff

IMO those programs are Cold War relics concerned that UFOs are the Russians or Chinese using Star Treky technology for spying. Today I think most people realize that gravity well generators or tractor beams or plasma weapons are less likely to practical or possible. It's telling to me that the government would cut funding for SETI and no one within defense is willing to defend it.

If you need for eugenics to be bad science in order to be opposed to it (and it seems secular liberals do), you're the one with the problem.
