Why can a person have confusion about their gender but not about their race? Why is Jenner celebrated but Rachel Dolezal vilified? submitted by Mr_YUP to AskVoat

lamamaloca 11 points 373 points (+384|-11) ago

The fundamental scientific difference is that there is evidence that the brain itself is gendered, but none that the brain has a race. That allows for the argument that one could be born with a male brain but a female body, or the other way around.

The science is far from settled, though, despite some advocates' claims. We know that hormones in utero, including hormonal treatments, influence sexual orientation and also gender stereotypical behavior, and there is some slight evidence that the brains of trans individuals differ, but we also know that our experiences and thought patterns can change the brain. But still, there is room for a scientific hypothesis there.

Also, Dolezal outright lied about her background and there is other shadiness surrounding her.

Is anyone else just lurking and not voting because they can't get enough comment points? submitted by Big_Tuna to AskVoat

lamamaloca 0 points 22 points (+22|-0) ago

Exactly. Because other new user's upvoats are limited, too, each comment doesn't get very many upvoats. Without that "reward" of an upvoat, there's not much incentive to comment.

Reddit gets Content Policy update ''We believe that some communities currently on the platform should not be here at all.'' submitted by junk to MeanwhileOnReddit

Which is especially funny considering that "a bastion of free speech" comes from a direct quote from Alexis. Oh well.

The Emergence of Orwellian Newspeak and the Death of Free Speech submitted by ideasware to news

lamamaloca 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

There have always been consequences to doing or saying things that society views as unacceptable. I agree that much of this is concerning, but it really isn't necessarily new or specific to this era. Look at how atheists and religious minorities have been treated through the centuries, by all kinds of governments. Political dissidents have also had trouble maintaining employment and living in many communities. It is always something to fight against and be cautious about, but lets not pretend it is new or specific to one group in power.

Caitlyn Jenners Rep Asked ESPN To Give Her Award In Exchange For PR Plugs submitted by JesTheRed to news

Not every transperson gets surgery, and even if they do, they usually are expected/required to spend a significant amount of time taking hormones and living as/identifying as the gender they are transitioning to before the surgery is performed. It isn't anywhere near the first step.

Question for people of FPH. submitted by Antima to AskVoat

I don't think most people find it is easy to lose weight -- in fact study after study shows that only the minority of individuals trying to lose weight manage to do so and keep it off. I'm glad it is easy for you, but that doesn't tell you anything about how easy or difficult it is for someone else.
