My question is. Why do you think you need to drill it into their heads? What harm do think will come to society if you don't? Like I said about the bathroom laws. Before their was a legal requirement to use the bathrooms according to your birth sex transgender people were using whatever bathroom they felt most comfortable in and it wasn't a problem. So why is it important now?
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/05/22/discrimination-sunday-texas-rushes-to-pass-transgender-bathroom-bill-and-measure-allowing-bias-in-adoptions-foster-care/?utm_term=.f87415bcdabc

So what had been in place is that people can, in the public (Govt/Municipal) sphere, use whatever restroom they wanted based on how they choose to identify. There is no vetting requirements that need to be met, to cert. of changing equipment or anything.

So The Texas House amended it. That still leaves the private sphere (Alamo) to do whatever they want regarding bathroom policy. - Which I support; I'm a capitalist. The harm I see in a unilateral policy allowing anyone to go whichever bathroom they please also used by the opposite sex, is beholden to sexual predators, not transexual people.

Holding, at some point, you have to objectively define an observable fact relating to the safety of fellow human beings. Perhaps it seems heavy handed and maybe so, however before the house amended the consideration law:

Things like that, in Texas, could happen with increasing frequency because there would be no requirement to prove gender association.

I was more for Ashii being a surrogate daughter, but yeah, if you're going to give Jack a victory, make it total.

First off its  a "him to die on". Learn to read.
Second I actually agree on that. Its the whole "I'm gonna go pretend I'm a woman to get in" I think is the dick move. Granted I realize Bandido is probably not actually going to do that much like the person at a party who goes "OMG wouldn't it be funny if we all jump in the pool with our clothes on?" isn't going to do it unless enough people reassure them its OMG funny to do so.

I'm not doing this to be funny. Not that I think that's you're main point. I do understand what you're saying, it's a petty to do - which the main reason to let it go. At the same time, I'm not sure what other method I can use to drill my point into my contemporary's heads. The open acceptance of anyone who ALSO holds a parallel set of values isn't diversity. The danger of a completely grown man being able to shield any conspicuous actions under the banner of straight facing a question isn't security. And in this case those two points are not mutually exclusive.

ATX isn't Berkley yet, but it definitely feels like eggshells around here. The Mayor standing against ICE gives a glimpse of the social landscape. That's a debate entirely irrelevant to this movie, so I won't continue it in this thread.

LOL jus read The Alamo theatre in Texas is screening a Women Only (& those that identify as women) session of WW.
Even the theatre staff will be all female.

Butthurt males are asking for a Men Only screening of Thor 3 in retaliation.

Thinking of going and just identifying as a female for a few hours. Hardest part would be saying it out loud. I don't even want to see it that much, just want to highlight the absurdity of the "Identify As" argument applied to society.

Effort to go the movie theater and watch a movie? I'm prepared to shoulder that burden, I have done so many times.
The whole convince people you identify as a woman part.
yeah there is no vetting process but trying to capitalize on someone elses actual self identity issues is kind of a dick move.

If saying "I identify as a woman" to get into a movie will offend someone because it isn't done in good faith? Then let those fuckers be offended. Christ...

 Pointing out they are biologically not what they claim to be is not a douche thing to do.

And I may not carry on with that plan for a specific reason. It's be a douche move to all the actual women wanting to enjoy the film as well any young gals who look up to WW attending for a special night with their mom/sis/friend.

In short, I'm targeting the bathroom bill. I get that most transgender or transsexual people aren't dangerous, but having someone can pick and choose who to be when it suits the tells of their desires to enter the bathroom to abduct or molest a kid is where I draw a line.
yeah we never had such laws in place preventing people from picking which bathroom to use and it was never an issue before.

The identify shit is what makes the sentiment fall of its face. Their is no identify as. Delusional self loathing is irrelevant. Either you are or aren't.

Indeed.

And yeah, part of me is bothered by the double standard at play. - If Ragnarok had come out first and the Drafthouse did a male only screening, feminists, the LGBTQ Community, Buzzfeed etc... Would lose their mind.

There's no vetting process - Hence the critique of absurdity. I can simply say so when prompted and I get a seat.

CW Green Arrow is no joke when it come to hand to hand combat, he could very well take a few from Widow there.
