Yeah Iím all for making people as comfortable as possible. I have absolutely no qualms with regular trans people. Iím not even trying to deny non-binary people their right to a pronoun. Itís purely argumentative for me when I question what it means to be non-binary. I just canít wrap my head around it and Iíve yet to meet someone who can adequately explain what it means to not be simply man or woman.

Right totally get that.  I can't really wrap my head around it too in terms of what my expectations are for such a person or their expectations on me.  So I think you're looking for an argument to explain those expectations and that's not there.  My point is such an explanation might never be there but it doesn't really matter in terms of how you treat people.  Like I don't need some gender ontology to not be an ass gibbon.  Which is the same for you given your comment, so maybe another way of saying what I'm trying to say is that her logic doesn't need to cover the case on nonbinary because I don't think you need a logic to begin with.

This also brings up one of the issues I have is that she says that Ben isn't really arguing about biology but linguistics, and I would say even that's wrong.  He's arguing from his discomfort with trans people and using whatever thing sounds reasonable - he's not arguing about linguistics, he's arguing from bigotry so even if there is a linguistic argument, it doesn't matter.

I donít really want to watch the video, but in his debate with Blair White, did he ever refer to her using female pronouns? Because he seems like too much of a coward to stand by his backwards ass standards when itís someone on his team he has to use them on.

Speaking as somebody with no special knowledge on the subject I understand nonbinary as an outgrowth of the view of gender as a social construct that is at least to some degree imposed upon us from outside. If gender categories are arbitrary then it makes sense to choose to abstain from these categories. Gender dysphoria on the other hand has an essentialist element; you have within you a natural gender that isn't the one you were assigned at birth, and the dysphoria you experience is a result of the repression of your true gender. As a postmodern neomarxist nonbinary actually makes more sense to me but a nonbinary person might say I'm totally off base in my description of it.

I think his issue was mostly with having laws telling him to do so.

edit: nevermind, you were talking about Shapiro.

In the spirit of not pretending you actually watch these videos, rather than listen to them as you do something else, here's a podcast:

I like Ashen's annual talks at the Norwich Gaming Festival. His knowledge of trashy old 8-bit British PC games is a treasure.

Blame Society channel is movie reviews and board games but the movie reviews are generally really fun. The premise is they review movies one of them has never seen. A wide range of movies from a wide ranges of history.

They've been doing it for many years. Playlist of all their reviews.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUldLshUcdRRMAEH4NoPISKgnTsqtDh7u

Example of their review style.

From iron and steel, to steel rail cars to the protectionist US government bidding process on rail car manufacture (no domestic companies exist, so it's extra weird):

Their other lectures are pretty good.  The museum itself is pretty cool if you are ever in the badlands. 

I saw Zuul, which was discovered around the same time when it was at the ROM and it was super super cool.




Also if you want more on paleontology I discovered the Common Descent podcast which is informative and not really dumbed down like most popular science.  The show does a half-hour of paleo/evolution news where they discuss articles from the last two weeks then an hour segment on some topic.  Except for a few of the early episodes the sound quality is perfect.
