    btw if I say that in class I'm in trouble w/ kids, parents and the principal

    as I wrote somewhere here last year a lot of the kids are now afraid to describe each other's physical appearance (part of my curriculum)

    Anyone else feel like we're being kept busy with all this nonsense about genders, transfaggots and pronouns so we don't get to talk about the real issues in the world. Is this what the kikes want?

    True, identity issues / discussions are keeping people busy. I agree.

    But even when we discuss the real issues, it's about a thousand times removed from the actual truth of the situation, because we don't have all the facts to hand, or a comprehensive, unbiased worldview to properly understand the possible outcomes.

    Look at the last 5 years. If people weren't discussing trans people, they were discussing whatever fantastical conspiracy theory they had just read online.

    Well that's also true.

    I typically do not discuss this out here in gen chat (only in N.I.) but I will mention it only once, and briefly. Conspiracy theories have completely fucked up my sister's life and thus by association our family life suffers from it too. I'm not going into detail here but it's bad and it's getting worse.

    Conspiracy theories have real life effects and derail people's lives in major ways.

    Is she a Wu-Tang fan that might stumble upon your posts or something?

    Anyway sorry to hear that. People don't realize how close they are to losing their minds on a day to day basis. If a few things go really wrong in a short space of time and the person isn't resilient, it can start this downward spiral effect that's difficult to break out of.

    The thing with these alt. right/conspiracy theory individuals. You cant tell them that they are wrong, it only makes their conviction stronger. It has become a cult essentially, and the only way to break them is by totally deprogramming the way they think. Which in most cases won't happen.

    There has always been whack jobs.

    KTL is whack job heaven. Talking about niburu and Planet X, the whole wutang religion is a conspiracy theory.

    It’s not a political stance it’s what nutjobs do.

    I think the trans/gay talk gets pushed by twitter to keep website engagement up. There's very little on the app that a lot of ppl want to discuss at once outside of celebrity misbehavior and a trans doing something ordinarily a woman would do. You get the support posts (it's primarily a gay and female app) then you get the anti-posts, then the arguments between them. Engagement being a major business model has made trolling on a corporate level and pre-meditated conflict curation is a million + dollar industry.

    I think it's a big reason 'the argument' about something is always the news story rather than the actual thing. So with the vaccines the report or trending topic is usually about someone refusing or someone giving a contrary opinion so that an argument can break out. You see less of it on sites that have no issues w/ engagement (Facebook, Youtube, Instagram) and a lot of drowning ass Twitter (it's also a literally gay club of an app so that helps too)

    ^^ I think what you said about 'the argument' makes a lot of sense.


    It could be (mildly) interesting to note that Twitter is used by different kinds of people / professions in different places. For example, in Belgium Twitter is only really used by politicians, journalists and a few porn models (since XXX content is allowed)

    This way, the news reports down here always include politicians' tweets and journalists' (mini) editorial tweets and opinions.


    Also, some people with an agenda tweet. The climate, trans ish etc. The 'regular' people don't tweet (nor follow) and the other people have only small followings ; those 'my opinion'-people who do tweet get hugely over-reported on in regular media.

    There's a saying down here that says that Twitter is only relevant to politicians, not to real people.

    Basically Twitter has hardly anything to do with real life (here).

    Back to trans news, at work here (I mean the school I work for) they have a new policy where below your name in the internal mailing system you have the option to have your preferred pronoun mentioned.


    So you could get an e-mail from Gary (she/her/hers). The option is hardly used though.

    Twitter here is journos, politicians, and gay people. When I say it's a gay I app I mean a disproportionate amount ppl on it are gay. It's also people playing an alt-ego and saying stuff they wouldn't say on FB because the ppl they know in real life will be confused. Journalism is dead so the journalists who can start the most conflict or get a lot of engagement are the ones that strengthen their job positions and hireability because news here now is about opinions on the news rather than news and the most conflict sturing opinion will make the most money.
