    My own relevant personal experience is merely having a strong sense of having been female in my incarnation prior to this one.

    Are you just trying to be a dick, or do you really have no insight into how other people might feel about what you're saying.

    There is no unfettered right to speech, especially under the NZ legal and political system rather than the US one.

    I'm glad you said that. And in the US, you could end up dead in a ditch for saying the wrong thing.

    And another possible misunderstanding for Mark Taslov. When I said some where around the number of people born with ginger hair, are born male and female, I was meaning Intersex people. What I was doing was trying to disrupt those weird ideas that some people argue about biological this and that and God.

    Your link, which was most appropriate, also told the Youtube algorithm to offer me this:

    It’s why America was once Great. California, I mean.

    Keep an open mind.

    Not saying it's easy.

    I'm a bog standard guy, with a standard name. I drive a Toyota ute and own a small excavator. Putting myself in your shoes isn't easy, but its well worth making the effort.

    so it’s always cool when bits and pieces of these discussions accommodate science.

    Somewhere around the same number of people who are born with ginger coloured hair, are born with male and female biology. And it’s up to each individual to decide how they would like to be addressed. Even people who can only think in common sense logic should be able to understand that. It’s a bigger step up from thinking like a four legged animal, to then empathise comprehensively.

    If I recall correctly, a biologically female person receiving testosterone will begin navigating his way through the world differently. That’s not a metaphor, I mean literally relying less on points of reference and more on “dead reckoning”.

    I once sailed an old trimaran from Waiheke island to the top of the south island, with only one chart of the Tasman sea. We had one chart of the Tasman sea, a hand bearing compass and a transistor radio. We used the radio along with the compass to know where New Plymouth was ruffly, and eventually spotted a Maui platform. from there light house - to light house.

    That’s not a joke. *Dead reckoning is an acceptable nautical practice, among proper blue water sailers. I don't think testosterone is all that important out there. The last thing you want to be doing is acting macho.
