    You're the one who seems confused on that point...

    So you're being purely pedantic here and just want people to know that, hey, we subjectively experience an objective world, so, you know, watch out for that?[/QUOTE]

    Yes. In China, they have the kind where you actually get persecuted for your identity or beliefs. Not just criticized for persecuting others. We do have plenty of that kind of persecution here, of...

    Well, of course they don't. Because there isn't such a movement. There was, as said, an aesthetic trend by that name that came and went. What you are doing is seeking a collective noun for everyone...

    If the portrayal is enforcing the stereotype that trans men are nothing but confused or insane women, why would trans people want a larger crowd watching it? "Their cause" is not, in fact, to amuse...

    Well, of course you wouldn't ask that. Because that's almost never what people mean when they say "blue". The idea of blue, not an objective cirsumstance that may or my not exist, is exactly what...

    I am getting really tired of this strawman...

    All of which just proves the rule.

    I have red/green color blindness. That typically means (and is the case with me) that I have difficulties discerning subtle changes in hue. As you noted...
  7. Yes, what label you put on your imaginary foes is...

    Pursuing a single political project is not a conspiracy. There are Christians all over the globe; they do not form a conspiracy.



    You are very hung up on how specifically people to whom...
  8. And how is casting a woman as a trans man, let...

    My take:

    Scriptwriters should aim for the minimum constraints on a character. Casting should respect the constraints that do exist on a character, although in most situations a trans person could...
  9. The entirely imaginary religon that you believe...

    Sure there is such group. It's defined, like most terms, ostensively. The Woke are the adherents of the religion, ideology or whatever one calls it that has become increasingly powerful in recent...
  10. There is no such group. People talk about...

    There is no such group. People talk about "getting woke" or "staying woke", referencing an influential pop song that became something of a popular aesthetic in the mid 2010s. This got somewhat...
  11. She didn't even accept the role, just said that...

    [/QUOTE]

    Well, yeah, I kind of get that you have that obsession with "The Woke", but can we get back to how it is that Halle Barry making her initial decision was just fine, but that there is...
  12. You keep talking about "the Woke" as though they...

    Of course there's a Woke. Next you'll be telling me there aren't conservatives or liberals or any other kind of political grouping.[/QUOTE]

    A practical example of the complications of color:

    You are listing off other perceptive artifacts,...

    How is color any different from other categories like shapes or objects? If anything, color is more objective than, say, "circular" or "a chair".[/QUOTE]

    Yes. In this case, race hysteria and paranoid fantasies of persecution.[/QUOTE]

    There's no such goddamned thing as "the Woke". It's just an adjective.[/QUOTE]

    It may surprise you that adjectives describe things that are real.[/QUOTE]

  17. There's no such goddamned thing as "the Woke"....

    No. Plenty of people disapprove of me. Islamists would throw me off a high building, and they are not "Woke".

    So you feel it should be illegal to deport Iranian refugees back to Iran when they flee to the West, since they are likely to face political persecution if forced to return? I agree, and would...

    No, I did not say they were happening. Rather, there is a pretty good chance that those things and others would have happened if she had failed to submit to Woke. Evidence of that...

    That is not remotely the case. It's a gross misrepresentation of what I said.

    First, Rowling is a victim of the attacks by some Woke people regardless of whether or not she submits. Why? Because...

    Money talks to women, too.

    The bail hearing was entirely virtual, done online.

    I marvel at how she, as a woman, was willing to assist Mr. Epstein in his lechery.[/QUOTE]

    I'm applying Woke ideology. Halle Berry hasn't had the lived experience of being a plain woman; for her to play that experience on screen is misappropriation.[/QUOTE]
