You buy your Valentine's Day cards at Walmart?

Back in my day, a kid could go to a white privilege conference for 20 bucks. I paid for my first one with the money I earned on my paper route.

I don't think I've ever been as disgusted at a DU jury as I am right now
I'm not sure this is the right place for this but I'm so outraged I can't think straight.
This post , in response to an OP about a woman who was murdered at her place of work (a pizza place) in an act of domestic violence, was actually upheld 3 -3.....

"Yes the pizza is that freaking bad!"

Yeah, real funny...And yet upheld as OK.
WTF ?????????????

First reply.

http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/technology/story/facebooks-56-gender-options-and-what-they-mean-20140214

A list of all 56 of Facebook's gender options:

Agender: Someone who does not have an internal sense of gender.

Androgyne/Androgynous: A person in whom both feminine and masculine traits are integrated in his/her sense of gender.

Bigender: A gender which switches between what is traditionally considered "female" and "male" genders in society. Bigenders can switch between identifying with each gender, versus androgynes who combine both gender traits

Cis/Cisgender: Cis is a prefix to describe people whose gender identity and physical bodies match, for example, a female gender in a female body or a male gender in a male body.

Cis Female/Cis Woman/Cisgender Female/Cisgender Woman: A woman who identifies as a female gender in a female body and presents herself in feminine terms.

Cis Male/Cis Man/Cisgender Male/Cisgender Man: A man who identifies as a male gender in a male body and presents himself in masculine terms.

Female to Male/FTM/Trans Male/Trans Man/Transgender Male/Transsexual Male: Usually used to refer to the men who were born with female bodies but who transition to their real gender identity via social (i.e. living as a male) or medical (sex change operation) means.

Gender Fluid/Gender Variant: A person who may identify more as male one day and female another day, regardless of physical traits. Fluid is preferred to Variant as the latter implies there is a "normal" standard for gender.

Gender Nonconforming: A person who behaves and/or presents in ways society considers to be atypical for one's gender.

Gender Questioning: A person who is still in the process of discovering one's gender, sexual identity or sexual orientation.

Genderqueer/Neutrois/Non-binary: A person who identifies as neither man nor woman, is between or beyond genders, or a combination of genders.

Intersex: A person born with both male and female reproductive and sexual organs.

Male to Female/MTF/Trans Female/Trans Woman/Transgender Female/Transsexual Female: Usually used to refer to women who were born with male bodies but who transition to their real gender identity via social (i.e. living as a female) or medical (sex change operation) means.

Neither/Other: A person who does not identify as male or female.

Pangender: A person whose gender identity spans a range of gender expressions.

Trans/Trans Person/Transgender/Transgender Person: A prefix denoting crossing borders. Hence a trans person or transgender means a person whose gender identity is opposite to one's biological sex.

Transfeminine: Refers to a spectrum of gender identities dominated by female identity and femininity.

Transmasculine: Refers to a spectrum of gender identities dominated by male identity and masculinity.

Transsexual: An older term originating from medical and psychological communities referring to transgender.

Two-spirit: A Native American term referring to a person whose gender identity encompasses both genders.

I've explained this elsewhere but if there are advanced aliens they will absolutely come to destroy us regardless of other considerations.

After millennia of battle the surviving G'Gugvuntt and Vl'hurg realised what had actually happened, and joined forces to attack the Milky Way in retaliation. They crossed vast reaches of space in a journey lasting thousands of years before reaching their target where they attacked the first planet they encountered, Earth. Due to a terrible miscalculation of scale the entire battle fleet was swallowed by a small dog. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy states that this sort of thing happens all the time.

If we are more advanced than them, which I think likely, then we will have to destroy them.

There's no denying your logic, which is why I intent to destroy all cows and lobsters before they become intelligent enough to destroy us.
