Unsurprisingly he's all over it. A similar situation in Ohio highlighted as well

Surely if you are a rapists then you are a rapists regardless of gender? Rapists and the like have used the cover of many guises to be in a better position to carry these things out? That's fairly common


Surely if you have a penis your gender is male? And if you have a vagina it is female?
The denial of science is very worrying. Where does the madness end?
I think if you deny the science you are a bigot or something

That is the problem with this debate. Anyone who questions basic science is a hateful bigot.
I don't have a problem with how people dress or the like but their gender is their gender. It is science. Are we questioning science? Is everything we know to be scientifically true up for debate because "feelings"?

Sex and Gender are 2 different things

https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/environmentalaccounts/articles/whatisthedifferencebetweensexandgender/2019-02-21#:~:text=The%20World%20Health%20Organisation%20regional,expression%2C%20and%20how%20they%20behave.

Sex and gender are terms that are often used interchangeably but they are in fact two different concepts, even though for many people their sex and gender are the same. This article will clarify the differences between sex and gender and why these differences are important to understand, especially in research and data collection. How and why sex and gender is important for SDGs and the principle of “leave no one behind” will be considered. It includes the UK government position on these concepts. ONS has done a lot of research and participated in discussions to understand these terms.


2.Definitions and differences
The UK government defines sex as:

referring to the biological aspects of an individual as determined by their anatomy, which is produced by their chromosomes, hormones and their interactions

generally male or female

something that is assigned at birth

The UK government defines gender as:

a social construction relating to behaviours and attributes based on labels of masculinity and femininity; gender identity is a personal, internal perception of oneself and so the gender category someone identifies with may not match the sex they were assigned at birth

where an individual may see themselves as a man, a woman, as having no gender, or as having a non-binary gender – where people identify as somewhere on a spectrum between man and woman

The World Health Organisation regional office for Europe describes sex as characteristics that are biologically defined, whereas gender is based on socially constructed features. They recognise that there are variations in how people experience gender based upon self-perception and expression, and how they behave.

Essentially, nearly all people are born with physical characteristics that are labelled male or female. In 1964, Robert Stoller1 coined the term gender identity, which refers to an individual’s personal concept about their gender and how they feel inside. It is a deeply held internal sense of self and is typically self-identified. Gender identity differs from sexual identity and is not related to an individual’s sexual orientation (for more information, see the Terminology page of the Gender Identity Research and Education Society). As such, the gender category with which a person identifies may not match the sex they were assigned at birth.

Gender is increasingly understood as not binary but on a spectrum. Growing numbers of people are identifying as somewhere along a continuum between man and woman, or as non-gendered (neither man nor woman) (see Gender Spectrum). Therefore, they often have their own words to describe themselves rather than using pre-defined categories of male and female (for more information, see Gender Identity Workshop, Summary of Discussions). While more people are identifying as non-binary, this is not a new concept and has existed for many years across different cultures around the world.

Manna from heaven for Linehan and the lads.

BBC News - Rapist guilty of attacking women before gender change
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-64388669

Why?
A lot of his Spiel is that a lot of trans activity is nefarious, a cover for men to harm women, damaging womens safe places, womens rights- among a helluva lot of other things. The linked article is exactly the type of thing he says is widespread. (I recently stopped following him again as his incessant posting was pissing me off, must have a look at his reaction to this).

Did the Pico climb, that would tighten you :( much harder than Teide imo, altho there was a lot more up and down which some of our crowd liked but doesn't really suit me tbh, from half way up there was a significant increase in the % gradient, sat at 11-15% for miles. Could only do so much in the 4 days we were there but think there are a lot more interesting climbs there to he done, one brute called the Valley of Tears.

Hopefully opinion isn't split in Glen whatever they decide, could be like contentious family money in a will, create nothing but ill feeling that is hard to repair and do damage long term. HQ really should be making the decision without putting the pressure on Glen to be the bad guys.

Glen need to regroup at HT or they're done for, KC much the better team after the first 15 minutes, if they could shoot they'd already be 4 or 5 up. Glen getting cleaned in MF again.

I've been listening to a lot of Tyrone people I know over the past while, every one of them convinced last year was an aberration, they'd all be pretty concerned after that I'd imagine, a switch can't be flicked to turn it all back on.

The GAA rip everyone off so why not get one up when you can.

Who is the beneficiary of this "rep off"?


Are the semi finals being streamed by anyone

Yes, the Ulster GAA.

Not the players that's for sure. Alot of men making a comfortable living off the back of the extortionate fees charged to watch or attend amateur games.
It will grease the road to semi pro, especially with Gaago becoming more central to programming.

Monaghan v Armagh SOLD OUT.

Over 2 weeks until the game.  What is the capacity in Blayney?  I don't remember any National League game being sold out anywhere ever?
Fecking tiny. No idea why they want it played there.
Only place in Monaghan with lights and it was a Saturday night TV selection.
Assumed it was for tv myself but Mayo v Galway is on RTE, unless BBCni has it?

Tyrone Vs Down
Derry Vs Cavan

Assuming these aren't televised on TG4? Thought I remember Armagh Monaghan being on last year, maybe it's just the final they could show.

Another paid stream it is probably.
Remember the days we used to give off about paying a monthly sub to Setanta to watch a few NFL games, now we throw out £5ers and £10ers (& more) to watch club & county. The GAA is more expensive than Sky & BT combined.
