re: Tipping is discriminatory and should be banned - UGATiger26
After hearing all the arguments on both sides, I believe that tipping in restaurants is illogical anyways. Just raise the price of the food and take mathematics out of the dining experience. ...

re: Chelsea's Hillary fundraiser bust: $2700 spots end up selling for just $50 - UGATiger26
Good. Few things aggravate me more than the quasi-celebrity status that we adorn the offspring of politicians with. Glad to see people coming to their senses in regards to Chelsea. ...

[quote]Could it be a series? If so, I'd go Band of Brothers. If not, I lean To Kill a Mockingbird.[/quote] I'd say a series is doable, but might take up too much class time time watching it. Thanks for chiming in :cheers: Apparently, I really need to read The Jungle. Never got around to it...

re: The Transgender Olympics - UGATiger26
[quote]I have no idea, man. Can you even sue the IOC? Under which legal system would you sue them? It's an international organization. I guess if you were a citizen of the country in which the Olympics were being held then you could sue them under your own country's laws. [/quote] I have no idea....

re: The Transgender Olympics - UGATiger26
[quote]I'm not actually concerned with coming up with real objective standards myself.[/quote] That's my point. There are no objective standards! That's why I'm saying that transgender-ism as social policy is illogical. Anything "objective" that rule makers would concoct would be a complete r...

re: The Transgender Olympics - UGATiger26
[quote]In other words, if a transgender athlete is 6'7" and the normal range of heights of cisgender athletes is 5'8" to 6'2", then it's possible or likely that the transgender athlete may have an unfair advantage that was gained from skeletal growth prior to hormone therapy. Such an advantage is ir...

re: The Transgender Olympics - UGATiger26
[quote]Don't know, really. I haven't put enough thought into that idea to give a qualified opinion[/quote] OK, fair enough. But I'll give you a hint: Don't bother. The only solutions are either: A) Absolute male/female (meaning sex, not gender) segregation in regards to sports. B) Abso...

[quote]I don't run the olympics. The people who run the olympics get to decide how they run the olympics[/quote] So for fun, let's just pretend that you did run the Olympics. Do you agree with Hog that transgender athletes should be allowed to participate in sports as the gender they identify...

[quote]When the organization governing the sport says so.[/quote] Translation: "I have no logical criteria to apply to this situation. Some governing body will just have to make up the rules as they go." Like I said, transgender-ism as social policy is illogical. ...

re: The Transgender Olympics - UGATiger26
[quote]That's what you're doing, actually. You're literally pretending that transgender doesn't exist so you can justify your discomfort with the idea.[/quote] Here's where we split. We know that the concept of transgender exists. That's pretty obvious. What we don't do is accommodate tra...

re: The Transgender Olympics - UGATiger26
[quote]edit: IMO it's unfair and wrong for transgender athletes to compete against cisgender athletes if their being transgender confers an athletic advantage in any way. Just want to put that out there. [/quote] Whoa whoa whoa, hold on a second. I thought that transgender people's "preferred...

[quote]The word he used was correct. Your word choice is poor.[/quote] Nah, "cis" is basically just lingo that was coined to describe what is otherwise normally functioning sex identity (or whatever you want to call it). We have the word "accountant" to describe someone who works in the profe...
