Ahh you mean ACC treatment for an accident - yep was aware of that.
Not really the same as treatment for an illness - mental or physical.

She can think it's bonkers if she likes. She can't harass someone because their gender doesn't match their sex.

Human remains shouldn't be identified as male or female, because we don't know if that man or woman wanted to be called one

The term "groomer" was suggested on Fox as the term to automatically call leftists, in the same way that leftists automatically call a right winger "racist". I expect it's got at least some traction, and the leftists are doing what the left does best, and just banning it.

“Some groups have been describing teachers and parents who oppose banning discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity in schools as ‘groomers’ – a term used to describe someone who gets close to and builds trust with a child or young person with the intent of sexually abusing them.”
So in the same vane as them eqauting homosexual men with pedophiles.

Conservative christians are fucked up alright.

What makes you think the message is for young kids?

What's wrong with advocating for people going no contact with toxic and abusive family?

Quote:
My message of support was directed at independent teens and adults, not young children. I'm not at all advocating young people run away from home. I'm talking about terminating abusive relationahips when one doesn't materially depend on the parent.

Bill Shorten, the Minister for NDIS and Government Services, has announced that the government will remove gender inclusive language from Medicare forms.

“They will be replaced with new forms that use the word mother, not birthing parent, which is consistent with other Medicare forms.”

Quote:

Transgender women will no longer be allowed to play in female contact rugby competitions in England due to safety and fairness concerns, under new recommendations from the Rugby Football Union to be voted on next Friday.

It marks a significant U-turn by the governing body, which until now has allowed transgender women to play at grassroots and club levels provided they undergo an independent medical assessment.

However, after a two-year review that began in the autumn of 2020, it has decided to fall in line with World Rugby’s guidelines, which ban transgender women from elite sport.

In a statement explaining its decision, the RFU said it had looked at the emerging science, consulted with other governing bodies and held a game-wide survey with over 11,000 responses.

It said: “The review and consultation concluded that peer reviewed research provides evidence that there are physical differences between those people whose sex was assigned as male and those as female at birth, and advantages in strength, stamina and physique brought about by male puberty are significant and retained even after testosterone suppression.

“This science provides the basis of the recommendation that the inclusion of trans people assigned male at birth in female contact rugby cannot be balanced against considerations of safety and fairness.”

@stonewalluk

Research suggests that children as young as 2 recognise their trans identity. Yet, many nurseries and schools teach a binary understanding of pre-assigned gender.

LGBTQ-inclusive and affirming education is crucial for the wellbeing of all young people!

I'm quite sure a subset of the outrage at the idea of people being able to decide from themselves who they are is it disrupts a source of exploitation.

I mean, if that cute girl who's just started at your company that you're hoping to rape turns out to have a penis, how disappointed are you going to be? Think how boring it would be as an exec somewhere like MediaWorks. You've finally able to act with impunity like you've always wanted, but how can you tell which is the pussy? Only girls are supposed to be pretty! Boys are supposed to be rough!

It's a documented fact that by the age of 2 a child has learned:

- Basic shapes.
- Rudimentary concept of time.
- Decisive signals (nod head for 'yes' etc)
- That dominant cisnegative tropes can lead to androgynous social-collectivism, further destabilizing toxic binary ideals.

I can't tell if someone's Australian enough by their name.

I'm looking from the outside but to me it seems like Aussie (compared to NZ) has a conservative christian sociopolitical streak that makes people comfortable spouting their religious bs.

I have no idea based on the current climate. We're told that everything is a social construct or is performative so i'd like to know seeing as you're using the word 'Australia' and 'Australian' i figured you could tell me what it means.

Just ask; is there anything held in common by the Manly league players who objected to wearing a Pride flag, and the South Auckland Labour MPs who voted against gay marriage?

Hey remember when Michael Jones refused to play at the 1991 World Cup because the ABs matches were on a Sunday and Jebus wouldn’t like that, and everyone thought that was super OK?

I wonder if something that all three examples have in common.

That can't be right Michael Jones sounds like a true blue white man name to me.

So you're putting it all on people with pacific island heritage.

It's looked at bit more diverse to me. From the outside of course.

Hilaritragic interview with Manly management in Sydney this morning. I paraphrase:

Media: why the decision to play in a Pride jersey?
Manly: to signal that we care about inclusion
Media: did you include any brown people in that decision?
Manly: no

Few weeks back MHG sprained his ankle at school volleyball practice and the school had to get my permission to give him ibuprofen.

Meanwhile, if a child at school in Maryland USA announces that he or she wants to commence gender transition, including surgery, the school is prohibited from telling the parents.

Hint: if your policy is “your parents don’t need to know, this can be our little secret”, you have a shit policy.

Wait to you hear about this thing called an abortion.

Quote:
As a young person, do I need my parents’ permission to have an abortion/ termination?
No. You can decide to have an abortion/termination at any age. If you are able to make an informed decision, meaning you understand the nature and consequences of a termination, health professionals must respect your privacy and not tell your parents. However, it is likely that your medical professionals will strongly encourage you to have a support person over 18 years old.
