Why do the boomers

Dec 10, 2019 by Moonfelar
insist that there's only 2 ways that people can experience gender? Gender is such a spectrum literally ask anyone, yes even the cis hets, to describe their experience of gender. You'll get different descriptions from each person.

Comments

Because they don’t understand that gender and sex are not synonymous.
I’m conservative as they come and understand it.

rperduex11 I'm always confused about when people call themselves conservative but have liberal social stances? What do you mean by conservative?
Sent by Moonfelar,Dec 10, 2019
Moonfelar I really don’t have a liberal social stance. I’m conservative on nearly every issue you can name. I’m just educated. If your blog had said “why do boomers insist that there are only 2 sexes” I wouldn’t be agreeing with you.

It’s indisputable that there are many genders, not sexes.

Moonfelar A traditional fascist is completely unopened to hearing anything that disagrees with their viewpoints. Fascism is a form of extremism. I would never take anything to that proportion. Just because my ideology is conservative doesn’t equate to negativity. That would be like saying all liberals are left-wing terrorists. That’s objectively false.

rperduex11 I mean why are you conservative? Conservative policies generally aren't about helping people. I mean are you just selfish or what's the reason? I'm genuinely curious.

Moonfelar Provide examples as to what you’re talking about so that I don’t stray away from what you’re getting at.

rperduex11 I'm coming from a US perspective, if you are outside the US the word conservative means something far different. But in the US, the conservatives generally all about limiting access to health care, food, shelter, etc. for the poor, for maintaining rigid social structures that benefit those at the top (usually white straight wealthy men), and pushing back on attempts to limit climate change, among other things.
Sent by Moonfelar,Dec 10, 2019
because without examples I’m fully prepared to argue that opposing abortion helps protect the rights of unborn children, and I’m nearly positive that you’re not referring to that.

rperduex11 provided examples above.

Okay so start off on your point about “limiting access to healthcare”
Republicans/conservatives have zero intention on limiting access, rather we simply disagree with the way it goes down in the status quo. It all comes down to what you stated towards the end—“for the poor.” In my mind, it’s not my job to provide for everyone else. I’m a full-time student working full-time and don’t ask for a dime of anyone else’s money, and that same respect should be given to me. Taxation—the means by which you’re stating—is literal theft. When I see the big chunk of money taken out of my paycheck going towards things that will not benefit me in any way shape or form, it’s irritating.

Sometimes people do need help, and that’s not something that I myself, or any other conservatives oppose. We simply disagree with the methodology being used right now. Obama Care, welfare, etc. ought to be reformed. I don’t personally think that all government assistance programs should be demolished, but they certainly need to have better parameters that limit exploration.

Second, let’s talk about climate change. *Usually* during debates I would argue that climate change is not real (because it’s actually quite easy to argue) but I know that isn’t true, so I won’t do that. You should realize that since 2005, the United States has actually decreased their emissions, yet China and India collectively have skyrocketed theirs. The United States cannot he the only country to act if we want real change. Rather, it needs to be a universal agreement. Since that agreement has not, and arguably will not be achieved, we don’t need to sacrifice our ways of life for something that we cannot prevent. Second, if you look up the carbon threshold for climate change, we are already passed it. In fact, we passed it in 2016. Science shows that since we passed that threshold, climate change is irreversible. The only thing that would stop it now is new technology that removed emissions from the atmosphere.

Imagine thinking that not wanting the federal government to control healthcare because they make everything they touch worse means that you want to take away people's healthcare.

rperduex11 I'm not an experienced debater, so IDK, but something about living in a society or being a human being with empathy should want you to help other less fortunate people. Even if you're not convinced by that argument, there's an argument to be made that society itself benefits when it's members can expect at least a modicum of dignity and security to be guaranteed. And yeah I'm kinda a nihilist about climate change myself but that's because I don't see any hope. So we're living in the end times ^.^
Sent by Moonfelar,Dec 10, 2019
electric I mean the senate did vote on a healthcare bill that would have eliminated obama care and would have left many without any access to healthcare, barely avoided that. I always hear conservatives talking about how trash the government is but they never propose any other solutions. It's just like eliminate federal funding for the poor and leave them to their own devices? Hope they don't get cancer or need food lol

Moonfelar You can easily help people on the right side of things (pun intended). I gave the abortion example, but helping people in the status quo is also something conservatives do, we just don’t like the way that liberals want to do it.

The liberal media (which is most of it nowadays) instills these false things that you genuinely thought to be true. You asking if conservative equated to fascism was something that the liberal media tries to instill into people in order to advance their agendas.

Something I’m sure you didn’t know what that the vast majority of our taxes right now go towards paying the interest on the national debt. Nobody is being helped in that aspect. We oppose taxes because the federal government doesn’t know how to handle our money.

Moonfelar with the left controlling congress right now, we can’t propose any alternatives. Adding to that, not proposing alternatives is quite literally our platform. We don’t want the federal government involved because they have a track record of making things worse i.e the Great Depression

rperduex11 Actually I used the word fascist because I'm a gay edge lord who watches Contrapoints. What will help the poor if not welfare programs?

rperduex11 then it really is just let them fend for themselves I guess?
Sent by Moonfelar,Dec 10, 2019
Again, conservatives don’t oppose welfare, we oppose the exploitation it is getting in the status quo. I really don’t need to answer the remainder of the question because as I stated, we don’t oppose it, but if you wanted an alternative, look to the 5.1 million additional jobs that have been created under the Trump administration. Unemployment has fallen to the lowest rate in 50 years.

Something else that you may be interested to know is that the poorest Americans live a higher quality of life than 68% of the globe. Your point falls on two fronts with that evidence.
Sent by Rperduex11,Dec 10, 2019
Moonfelar No, the biggest thing conservatives believe in regards to healthcare is that there should be more competition between healthcare providers to increase the quality of care and drive prices down. Not the government taking sole control over everyone's healthcare.

rperduex11 I'm not impressed with that final statistic for various reasons. And being employed doesn't mean that people have enough for their basic needs. IDK conservative policies still seem to boil down to fuck you I've got mine, but maybe I'm wrong. All the posturing about how ineffective the government is has always seemed like a front to me.
Sent by Moonfelar,Dec 10, 2019
And you’re entitled to your opinion, but recognize that much like all other liberals, you didn’t give us a single piece of counter evidence and just dismissed everything we stated like it was nothing. Moonfelar I do thank you for having a civil discussion, it’s hard to find people willing to do that!
Sent by Rperduex11,Dec 10, 2019
rperduex11 I don't think it's fair to expect every body to be able to pull statistics out they ass on a moments notice lol. Also you didn't cite any sources or anything so I could have just as easily made up numbers (not saying that's what you did).
