    I agree Frank I wasn't clear in my post. I did watch the whole thing and it was really hard to do so.

    Agree it's crap. Act like an entitled yelling idiot who wants the world served to them and no one will want to be around you. Any landlord would probably think this is going to be a complaining victim tenant. She sure seemed to revel in her victimhood.

    But I did previously watch the whole thing.

    That video makes him look weak and ineffective; which I suspect was their intent to begin with. Why in heaven's name did he stand there trying to argue with that bunch of idiots???? Can you imagine Donald trump putting up with that chit? What he should have done after the first two minutes was say, "It's been nice talking to you but I have an appointment. If you have further questions, feel free to contact my web site." Or his lawyer or somebody.

    I don't know what he is running for but if he doesn't do better than that, he won't win.

    The interviewer seems to be confused as to biological sex - which is fact - and psychological gender, which is personal choice, as are all of your psychological viewpoints.
    What the Doctor has to say therefore is just as valid in any society that claims equality.
    Empty vessels and all that.

    I watched the entire video. I think she/he was very belligerent throughout the video. The professor was trying to listen and respond but everyting he said was turned around or taken out of context.

    How can anyone get so upset and defensive about the use of 'words'?

    It's a personal problem or preference and not everyone's problem to concede to it.

    There are some who are experts in the art of perverting a perfectly simple statement into something arbitrary.
    The comical example might be:
    1st man: You have a great looking wife.
    2nd man: So, you want to date my wife do you?!!
    1st man: No, I do not wish to date your wife.
    2nd man: Are you saying that my wife isn't good enough to date?!!

    In debate, those who are adept at turning positive and well researched statements into negative rhetoric are valued individuals but to me are pretty useless because they never add to anything but rather redirect the subject matter into a whole new and negative arena of thought.
    In essence, like the hit man on a hockey team, the word bully means to create havoc and anger............

    Canada it is now against the law to use the wrong pronoun when addressing these people so for now I call them all IT because in the middle of a sentence they might change their minds and claim they are different. So they are all it now.

    Control the language and you control the culture.

    As for transracialism, you'd better ask Rachel Dolezal.

    That's the verbal equivalent of making the argument about the person rather than the issue or, in the case of Wikileaks, rather than arguing the very real information that had been revealed by Wikileaks, turning the discussion around to one of whether or not Wikileaks should have that information.

    @Bobby Cole Your two man example there sums it up nicely.

    I continue to follow some of this stuff on You Tube since watching videos on the Evergreen State College protests that erupted May 2017. These hysterical protests are found at other colleges.

    No one should be harassed in anyway but it seems now others are supposed to turn their lives around to accommodate them. These people aren't half as marginalized as they want to think they are.

    There were complaints for years, year after year, decades ago, that the schools were failing , and they got more money, and more money, and more money, and the more money they got, the governors and mayors and administrators got hudnreds of thousands of dollars increases, but the schools are still failing...

    And now with all the recent changes,

    in some or many areas, the parents can just call an 800 number to get a legal authorization to get high because of , oh my, stress, etc .... and the kids likely find it easier also to get zonked because so many others are daily....

    Believe it or not, one-room schoolhouses exist in many countries, but the main reason is poverty: there's only one teacher with students of different ages, and the school day is brief because the children have to work in the fields.

    According to Gatto, this began to end in the states in 1850:

    They still exist in this country, in some cases because the community isn't large enough to support a larger building but, in other cases, by design. Montessori programs are quite popular, and they generally involve multiple age groups being taught in one room.
