my opinion is that this topic has kinda turned into a dead horse. i personally dont care how a person identifies so long as they dont go cramming it down peoples throats. same idea as religion, i guess. it was kind of a funny clip, but Piers Morgan is still a dip**** so you know, whatevs.

also non-binary as a term seems a little silly to me because ive never "felt" like a man. i just am, biologically speaking, male, and therefore acknowledge myself as being exactly that. but eh, its 2017, let people do their thing, right?

Also, if some people really want to use such a lame argument wouldn't they also have to only purchase products from the people who created the product? White guy owns music store, can't sell culturally black music because he profits from it? Who does that benefit?

Cultural patents
"Going to the bank" often means to take credit for in general, not just financially

It's just a bit ****

Because these sub cultures are often a response to oppression by the class that then appropriates it

Who ****ing cares? Elvis Presley being influenced by black musicians is completely morally neutral. It's not like he went on stage in blackface and did a Chuck Berry song. And I don't even like Elvis Presley. Weaksauce white boy rock for kids with lame haircuts.

You racist bastard. What about all those who identify as throat crammers, huh? You even think about the "throaties"???

From that article:

Quote:
The pair pleaded with Piers not to treat the conversation about their choice not to identify as either male or female as a “hypothetical intellectual discussion”.
I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with a "hypothetical intellectual discussion."

Of course you would say this, you are a white male oppressor

Oh crap! I have that feeling where I now see MLM's posts and think they're mine! "I didn't write that! Hey! Wait a minute! That's not me!"

You should change your usertitle to "Just call me Qwertyy".
Be fun to see if the universe implodes.
