All milk is breast milk (that's the etymology of 'mammals'), so that's quite sensible. And it'll cause much less confusion at the supermarket...
You mean when it will start selling there? I am not sure if moms, pardon perinatal partners in crime, will feel like milk farming if the world can't be bothered to copyright their trade mark.

What is the etymology of woman by any chance...What will the world call us in 5 years, I wonder.

Quote:
woman(n.) “adult female human,” late Old English wimman, wiman (plural wimmen), literally “woman-man,” alteration of wifman (plural wifmen) “woman, female servant” (8c.), a compound of wif “woman” (see wife) + man “human being” (in Old English used in reference to both sexes; see man (n.)).17 Mar 2020

This forum is heading into the nut job territory. Lousy wit compounded by projection. If this was supposed to be funny, it's not. If it's serious, I'll make sure you're banned from this forum forever.
Hmmm, I'm pretty sure threats are against forum rules.

Looking forward to your (or the people who thanked that post) next complaint about aggressive posts on here.

Re: Men are simply better at everything?

Anyone remembers her Conchita Wurst?

Sometimes I think it's all about the same, people who want to succeeds no matter how with minimal effort. Why to work your way out to the top like a donkey if you can outsmart it. Gender swap can help that in many paths from changing the assessment category, increasing your chances to be popular, to having more opportunities to have sex There are many individual motives but all are the same, to get to the goal the easiest way.

In some sense I like it. There are so many absurd privileges so now there's a hack, I can declare myself black lesbian woman (despite my skin remaing as it is, white type) and reap all the benefits, woohoo!!

He said it was a joke. However I do not like the direction this forum is going in many ways. Those who claimed they were bullied and ultimately banned have come back to continue their trollish and provocative behavior. Itís not a problem when there are a few posters like that but when the whole atmosphere of a forum changes, it can be worrying.

Funnily enough, you seldom (ever?) see transmen competing on the sporting world stage.
Not world stage, Not sure what he is up to now in his wrestling career, but Mack Beggs is an interesting person to read up on.

That's a poor excuse for your aggressiveness and threat.

It's as if you considered yours something different from other's, aka double standards - not that it would be much of a surprise, really.

Medea , if you'd have to call in for a service 45 chf p.h (cleaning,cooking,gardening....scrubbing floors) you'd choose 'woman' or 'a man' to come over and do the work ?

I'd choose a guy anytime ,no way I'd take the chance to pay and some whinging woman comes over and cant lift this cant do that , would try to make a drama , if she cooks she'll start crying while chopping the 2nd onion, while with a man , most likely it'll go smooth and it'll be efficient. No wonder they excel at these jobs which were wrongly attributed to women

This has actually long been discussed. You've got a choice of womyn, womban, womon, wombyn, wimmin (all hail Viz) and even womxn.

I think you can see the general trend...

It is not. It is polite.

It is funny because I think (hope?) this is the ad absurdum that will kill the entire escalation of absurdity. Plus it's funny to see the 3rd & 4th wave feminists struggle with this greatly

Of course I sure hope I'm not wrong. In before someone defends himself in court with: I'm not a pedo, I identify as a 5 year old

This is what the CTO wants, otherwise he'd never have reshaped the mod team in the direction he did.

Good luck trying to find him though. He's done a Saul Goodman-style disappearing act and is now probably working in a Pancakes R Us in Omaha.

Dear Miss Waffle House 2021. Please let me congratulate you on your success. Afraid I didn’t vote for you this year myself. I'll try to look into why I didn’t receive the email listing the candidates.

Transwoman are transwomen. They will never be women. To say otherwise is a denial of scientific fact.

While there are women who will never have a period, never go through menopause, never bear a child, most have the capability. Transwomen do not. They've not experienced growing up as a woman. They've grown up as transgirls then transwomen. That's their experience. It really is quite different. Just as real and valid, but different. I've no problem addressing them with the feminine pronoun.

Funnily enough, you seldom (ever?) see transmen competing on the sporting world stage.

According to transactivists (nearly all natal males), the above is transphobia. Funnily enough the transpeople I know personally agree with me, not the activists.
Dora Richter would Probably have words with you on this topic, Dora Ratjen in the Berlin Olympias too, come to think about it.
