It's scientifically incorrect. Apparently it's even linguistically incorrect. Gender isn't a social construct or contract. Femininity and masculinity fit that role, but a boy is a boy and a girl is a girl. The two are not interchangeable just because someone is overly masculine or overly feminine. We have ideas about what "stigmas" accompany males and females but that has nothing to do with the actuality. Play the word game all you want, but people who identify as something they biologically aren't are fucking retarded.
#306 - bobbysnobby (12/03/2014) [-]
I study biological anthropology and I can tell you thats about as dumb as when people say "Evolution is a theory therefor it shouldnt be taught" I dont care what your layman understanding of gender is, its not equal to sex. Sex is biological, gender is sociological and has to do with role in society defined by sex. Its not some SJW definition its used for a shit ton of stuff. For example Gender Identity of non binary sex individuals for example hermaphrodites.
For example Ethnicity and Race are not the same thing, even though people use them interchangeably in casual conversation. Race is biological as in your biological heritage. Ethnicity is about self identity, for example if your mom is Mexican Hispanic your dad is Irish and you live in an Irish neighborhood never learned Spanish or took part of any Mexican traditions. You might be a Mixed race child with both Mexican and Irish heritage but you might not identify as Hispanic.
TL; DR version.
Gender =/= Sex this is not a SJW argument its actually the definitions used in the scientific literature.
Its the same logic used in saying Ethnicity =/= Race. If you disagree its because of political reasons not scientific ones.
#356 - infinitereaper (12/03/2014) [-]
The only thing dumb here is the retarded delusional use of "identify". As a man of science I believe your so called "gender" as per this argument, should be called what it actually is. Confusion, delusion, and a mental disorder. You are what you are. It doesn't matter what you think you are. It doesn't matter what you identify as.
A cup of orange juice is a cup of orange juice, no matter how much it wants to be it will never be a cup of tomato juice. This entire issue is so fucking retarded. Gender shouldn't even be used at all then if it's that fucking stupid.
#360 - bobbysnobby (12/03/2014) [-]
This just shows that you haven't through about the nuances.
For example lets say your born as a boy. But you have the biochemistry of a girl. What are you? This has nothing to do with identity or how we "feel". They have a penis but none of the hormones or hormonal production of a male. They can even have biochemical clocks like they are going through period cycles. If we conclude that all that is important is that they were born with a penis, ok lets carry that to its logical place.
What if your born with both male and female reproductive organs. Now do we consider biochemistry? Do we say they are sexless? Do we say they are both?
The concept of Identity is an important one for study because it impacts peoples choices and the structure of their values which are important when looking at people and group decision making. For example there are cultures were gender roles are reversed. Males wear makeup and go to great lengths for physical beauty and women do not. And many other examples we dont need to go into.
Gender is a short hand for societies expectations for a sex and for the individuals sense of place in a community. The reason it comes up is there are many people who dont really belong to either sex and that creates massive problem in gender identity.
The way SJWs abuse the notion of "The typical is wrong we embrace the Atypical no matter how infrequent, and you being insensitive about .00001% of the population makes you a monster XYZ" Obviously its an abuse of this fact, but its not because the science is wrong. Its the application of a judgement, a set of values on the science.
They are wrong a lot of the time, and the way they try to make themselves heard makes us all flinch and want to make them shut their fucking stupid mouths. But arguing over the use of the Terms Sex and Gender when they have codified definitions in the scientific literature is just as pointless.
#367 - infinitereaper (12/03/2014) [-]
2) You are both, though usually it leans one way or the other. At this point a person can be either or. They have that right.
3)Identity is an issue of psychology, not an issue of sociology. Making it one is when this becomes nonsense.
4) There are scientific differences and reasons males and females have different expectations. Example; estrogen and behavior, testosterone and behavior, women have thinner skin so are more sensitive to touch and violence because of concentrated nerve endings, females are generally physically weaker but have a higher tolerance for pain. Different centers of gravity, etc. All of these play a role from a sociological perspective.
Listen I'm all about the science. I think the problem is that you aren't as about it as you think you are. I don't care for nuances or making people feel good or justifying anything. There are answers to everything, and while people may not like them that doesn't mean they can corrupt perception just to make themselves feel better. It's a fallacy. Sex isn't a construct,
the only construct here is this idea of gender identity, an as I've stated time and time again; it's illogical
#368 - bobbysnobby (12/03/2014) [-]
I dont think your grasping the point. There is no argument ...well maybe a little, but by in large no argument about definitions of sex.
Ill say it one time as clearly as I can. To scientists who study people Identity matters. That is the reason studies often look at Race and Ethnicity. They are not the same. Sex and gender when your talking to mom and dad or your friends is not important. To scientists the distinction is important.
For example if you have like my siblings Native American Heritage through their father they are more prone to diabetes than I am. That's a health concern related to Race. Ethnically Mexican families in New Mexico are prone to obesity and heart related heath problems due to dietary practices. This is a problem from Ethnic dietary practices not from differential race genetics.
"Identity is an issue of psychology, not an issue of sociology" This is a very strange claim im not sure how its an "Issue" and anthropologists dont speak about it as an issue. Society creates roles for genders they are not some absolute, we know this because different cultures have different gender roles than we do.
The easy way to explain it is this.
You are a boy, you are a girl, you are both, you are neither. These are Sex categories.
This is masculine, this is feminine, this is neither, this is both. Those are Gender Categories.
An example of it in practice. Women on the average, across the world do more housework then men. This is a characteristic of gender, not of sex.
#370 - infinitereaper (12/03/2014) [-]
Your sex and gender categories make sense, however the gender categories are still a little contrived, I've mentioned the science behind behavior, and how that's tied to psychology. What gets me however is the fact that few seem to acknowledge the scientific, hell the biological reasons men and women have certain expectations. Like men (hunters) and women (caregivers) but if you look at it from the perspective of evolutionary biology it all makes much more sense. Like I said, my gripe with the concept of gender is that it's plastic and much less of an actual science than it is about human behavior. For sake of clarity I simply state things how they are.
This whole issue of identity is what I find so unscientific. This idea of Ethnicity instead of simple of cultural heritage is what I find preposterous. While I understand where this comes from, I have my own criticism, perhaps my viewpoints stem from that.
Perhaps what bothers me most is that there is no middle ground, like normative and nominative economics, I believe that there is a middle ground that takes the best of both into a superior science. I probably feel the same way about gender and sex.
Meaning I can only agree with you half the time, and the other half have problems with those statements and ideas. I find the science far superior however, and I believe lots of people misuse the concept of "gender", or forget entirely that gender is the concept, not sex. I don't believe gender is a social construct, I believe it's a psychological construct that people try to make a social one, one that may or may not have basis in reality depending on person(s).
Which is why I call it a word game. Get lost in the definitions and the "sciences" to much and you won't truly understand humanity. Truth is derived from breaking free from human illusions and acknowledging them for what they are.
Much in the same way you are trying to explain, technically correct and correct aren't the same things either
#270 - adamks (12/03/2014) [-]
The word gender actually only began to see use because some guy used it to describe social roles. Before that the word was only used for grammatical purposes. So the words origin means the social gender role, not the physical sex, although it may very well include physical sex.
#200 - anonymous (12/03/2014) [-]
Gender isn't a scientific term. Linguistically it is correct.
Christ, do you morons even bother to pick up a dictionary before shouting about how someone is misusing a word.
#193 - TarnRazor (12/03/2014) [-]
Sex and gender have different definitions. Sex is the physical/biological aspect of who you are. Namely, the thing between your legs. Gender is the way society views you (whether masculine or feminine). Now I'll tell you why gender is a social construct. Everything we know about gender today isn't the same as what gender used to be 500 years ago. The pinnacle of manliness 500 years ago was wigs, makeup and high-heels. Nowadays, these things are considered feminine. Similarly, up until a few decades ago, male babies were wrapped in pink blankets because pink was associated with health and was, thus, considered manly. There is no scientific evidence of a distinguishing factor between a male and female brain. They both operate in much the same way. If you think hormones affect emotions, that'd be a common misconception. Women are thought to be more emotional simply because society encourages men to bottle up their emotions since expressing emotions is considered feminine. It just makes sense to me that these things aren't set in stone.

"(which is a decently powerful move)"
Nigga, what? You talk like this is just an average move.
120 Base Power 100% Accuraccy
Dragon Ascent inflicts damage and then lowers the user's Defense stat and Special Defense stat by one stage each. (Flying type move )
#19 - awesomenesss (12/04/2014) [-]
I played in a tourney a while back and it wasn't smogon rules (which I don't follow anyway because smogon is fucking retarded) and this one guy got PISSED at me for not following them saying I should be DQ'd and stuff. I ended up beating him but then lost the next one to someone who also wasn't following smogon rules. top kek
#21 - awesomenesss (12/04/2014) [-]
I'm not entirely sure, I think I used a pokemon that smogon banned. I've personally never like Smogon, there rules have never made sense to me. That's just me though, if you wanna follow their rules go ahead I just don't like being accused of cheating when the tourney didn't even follow Smogon rules.
#22 - pokemonstheshiz (12/04/2014) [-]
If you aren't playing smogon rules, then there isn't a tier determined, and therefore there aren't any banned pokemon. Smogon has an Ubers tier, which (at this time) all pokemon were allowed in. The only abilities not allowed were Moody, so I guess you could have broken it that way, and there's a species clause(but Nintendo bans that too).
The rules are made so people actually have to build good teams, without having to worry about things with ridiculous RNG things, like having to bring an Unaware Quagsire everytime for fear of Moody.

I just got my hands on a Pokemon game again for the first time in over six years RIP Charizard, I hope whoever stole my bag at the airport all those years ago was kind to you ;_; and all this metagaming stuff has me incredibly confused. Where should I look to get an explanation that covers everything starting with the very basics?
#6 - pokemonstheshiz (12/03/2014) [-]
For battling: Do practice battles on showdown, and watch some poketubers play competitive games. For showdown, start with randomized teams instead of making one yourself. Showdowns random isn't really random, it's competitive pokemon with decent movesets, so you can figure out some things that people like to run or strategies or whatnot.
#4 - anonymous (12/03/2014) [-]
This probably isn't the best suggestion but I learned mostly by just watching people play smogon battles on youtube also it may help to say what generation you stopped playing
