Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    unless they are trans...

    none of these are discrimination.

    Discrimination is the prejudicial or disadvantageous treatment of an individual based on his or her membership - or perceived membership - in of a minority. Discrimination restricts members of a minority group from opportunities or privileges that are available to the majority group, leading to the exclusion of the individual based on minority membership and not on an individual’s behavior or character.

    Then you're ignoring the entire meaning of the word, "discrimination."
    Yes it can be against a race or group of people, but also;

    Discrimination
    2.
    recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another.
    "discrimination between right and wrong"

    And yes, women should have the right to feel safe when using a ladies room or shower room without a male coming in, even when the male is dressed like a girl.

    It’s one thing to have male strength competing against female when it’s in the open but any masquerade into women’s bathroom stalls is a rape waiting to happen. There is no safety buffer in a case like that. jus sayin'

    Of gender and sex, there are only two - male and female.

    Of popular distortions, they come from twisted and perverse places - unsuitable for civilization.

    It wasn't bigotry but how rational discrimination is used in society.

    Do you think not letting children drive cars is bigotry ?

    There is no scientific evidence supporting the idea that there are more than two genders.

    When you buy a dog, do you ask for a male, female or non-binary one ?

    Of course you ask for either a male of female

    Same is true for humans. There is only male and female.

    Sure, there are humans with gender dysphoria, but that's only .08% of the human population and the majority are males. 70% of the children with gender dysphoria if left alone, will grow out of it.

    Great damage is being done to young girls who suddenly decide they're men and want to start taking hormones and even have surgery done. Parents do great harm in supporting such thinking.

    the meaning of the word fits...or are you saying that HERE context applies?

    you claimed it was discrimination, but it isn't and its silly to try to claim that it is

    Only 0.8% in a world of billions of people equates to more with gender dysphoria than there are people in the entire United States. Assuming that is an accurate number. That's no small number of people. If the world were at 6 billion people that's over 480 million. United States has somewhere around $300 million in comparison.

    There are closer to 8 billion people on Earth which means that by this number, the total quantity of people with gender dysphoria would be roughly double the population of the entire United States.

    Or greater than 600 million people.

    Stop Using Phony Science to Justify Transphobia

    defining gender [as binary] has no basis in science

    the evidence doesn't support this claim


    But there is evidence that the prejudice you put out actually does cause damage. SO why do you keep doing it?

    We discriminate on a variety of issues and for good reason. Not all are about racial or gender discrimination, but "rational" discrimination like not allowing children to drive cars.

    I'm saying that there is justification for discrimination and not allowing a male to go into the ladies room, is justified discrimination.

    I googled it, but I recall the .08% number, but the doctor may have been just stating the stats for the US.

    This is what google came up with;

    Prevalence of Gender Dysphoria
    According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, gender dysphoria prevalence accounts for 0.005–0.014% of the population for biological males and 0.002–0.003% for biological females.Apr 16, 2021

    there is never a good reason

    In this context it is.

    not allowing children to have a driver's licence is based on the qualifications of having a driver's licence. Refusing to hire someone to perform surgery because they don't have the education, training and experience to safely perform surgery is not discrimination. If you however won't hire a potential surgeon because they are black regardless of qualifications is discrimination. Pulling the alternate definition of discrimination ploy that you have done here is just a way of making yourself feel better about actual discrimination against minorities


    and a generation ago people said that it is justifiable discrimination to not allow African American's to use the same restrooms as white people.
