    Theoretical AFC Championship scenario

    Tough to feel threatened when your team has won 3 chips in the past 5 years and just lost their first game in 320 days.

    That's a bad argument though. All the postseason greats had to start their postseason career. Lar did it coming in mid season and almost came back. This year he is a different cat.

    Theoretical AFC Championship scenario

    Lamar and the Ravens are the flavor of the month just like Mahomes and the Chiefs were last year. Lamar still has yet to prove himself in the postseason. There’s a big disparity from a week 9 regular season game and the playoffs, especially a conference championship.

    Theoretical AFC Championship scenario

    I agree. I think purely from an X's and O's standpoint the Ravens have the upper hand here even in Foxboro. Being on the road and having to use the silent count didn't slow them down even one little bit in Seattle; they blew our doors off, having Russell Wilson pretty shook to the point where he played completely unlike himself to try to compensate for how many points we were giving up. The run-pass-option when done right is pretty much nearly unstoppable, and they are doing it better than anyone has ever done it right now. It's to the point where as long as they don't shoot themselves in the foot with penalties, they can go for it on 4th and short and be pretty much guaranteed to make it. If we get this matchup in the AFC Championship, I just might get into gambling.

    If you really don't think that trans people don't face discrimination and bullying at work and school, I really do not know what to tell you. We've done studies on this. An overwhelming majority of trans people (between 80-90%) reported mistreatment and harassment at the workplace. We had someone transitioning at the previous store I worked at in Louisville and everyone would talk shit about her in the breakroom whenever she wasn't around. The key part is getting them past the schooling years. 40% of trans people have attempted suicide at least once. If they can get to around age 25, those attempts drop off drastically. Right-wingers have a stated political ideology that is anti-trans. They are trying to keep them out of bathrooms like they're some sort of perverts that just go in there to peep at women. They ban them from the military. They say that businesses should be allowed to discriminate against them. "Logical questions" my ass. The right is pandering to their evangelical base which sees the entire trans population as being sinful and wrong. You'll only address the individual by name if they look the "wrong" gender to you. This is my point. You don't actually care what is between their legs, but their physical outward appearance. You really gonna refuse to call someone he or him if they look like a man?

    You do realize that the majority of this "bullying and hatred" from the right wing is a constructed perception used as a political device by the left wing, right? It's their go-to line when right wingers don't get in line immediately on every ridiculous idea Democrats have to address social issues. You look at what most right wingers are actually doing and saying on trans issues, and you find it comes from logical questions that come to mind. Even the hated guys like Ben Shapiro aren't saying things worth getting riled up over. Also, define bullying, because we've all known people who took the slightest thing and claimed it was bullying. Trans people are already insecure and susceptible to suicidality. Is it not possible that they perceive a lot of bullying that isn't actually there, or isn't intent to be bullying? Let's actually look at trans interaction with non-trans people and try to find out how much bullying actually occurs, what kinds of bullying occurs, and then let's address the actual problem instead of just taking their word 100% and creating legislation with a vast, overreaching umbrella that sets dangerous precedents and will never make it into law. I mean, would you not agree that bullying in general is ridiculously overstated? Look in our workplaces--most reported bullying comes from lazy and/or incompetent people. You can call that a blanket statement that can't be proven if you want to, but if you've worked with a crew of more than 10 people, you've seen it firsthand. I'm not using wrong or made-up pronouns. I'll just address the individual by name.

    If you kick your kid out for being gay or trans, you're a piece of shit. No offense, but this generation is the worst groups of parents in human history. It is astonishing how bad they are, and the dumb ones like to fuck....A LOT.

    2019-20 NBA Season Thread

    3 straight losses for the Sixers now after the hot start. It was their first west coast trip though and it kind of highlighted the fact that Embiid's conditioning Isn't where it needs to be. Hopefully less weight means he can improve on that as the season goes on. When the Sixers gel I think they're going to be a uniquely old school team centered around defense and rebounding and I think with all these teams going for more shooting the Sixers style of play could be effective. Thybulle seems like a great pick. If he can develop a consistent 3pt shot he will be the best 3 and D guy in the game not named Klay Thompson.

    Psychology is a social science though. Just do a simple Google search and it becomes clear. Psychology Is the study of behaviors attributed to the mind and how that plays into societal constructs. Pretty much everywhere says it is fringes science not on the same stringent level as the other 2.

    Good to hear. I do mean that. There are plenty of people I talk to who would not do the same for their kids. Hell, I know someone who got kicked out just for being gay. I don't think Zim/Zer people exist in real life. If they do they are a tiny tiny minority of trans people. Hell, many of them that are online do not say they are trans at all, they are just genderfluid, which is another bucket of worms. I was talking about where you claimed I said you were shitting on trans people which was well before that. I never said that. Psychology is in its own class, even in your link, its not lumped with the social sciences, unless you're gonna argue engineering is as well. Psychology encompasses all fields of psychology. Psychology itself as a whole is 2/3 on what makes something a science. There's no comparison to feminism, no part of which is a science. A social science is a totally different meaning of the word.
  20. Omerta

    Trump Regime thread.

    That's what I am saying. You can call psychology a science, but it isn't unless it is crossed with an actual science. Psychology by itself is no more a science than feminism. I also did that because you said when you say psychology it encompasses all sciences under it, thus a science. If we apply that logic to the word science we have to put feminism on the same plane as say molecular biology. When talking about something this broad you don't get to be lazy with your words, and claim things are all encompassing or you end up saying, well gender studies is a science according to stem, which it isn't. I have already said this. I will call them the he/she of their choosing. Where I draw the line is the Zim/Zir nonsense. You just made that shit up so how do you know you identify with whatever a Zir is? You were born a woman but want to be called him, no problem, I gotcha pal. You want me to call you Zim, nah dude. Get your ass on down the road. You don't feel like a him or her (nonsense, but whatever) I'll call you by your name. Dude are you serious? Like 3 posts ago you said I am going out of my way not to be a decent human being. Now you wonder why I claim you said that. You have a very nice habit of insulting me and when you get called on it, play the victim like I'm the one making shit up. Then you say stupid shit like I would not love my kids or put them first if they were trans. Dude, shut the fuck up. My kids are going to be my everything along with my wife no matter what. Macy wanting to be a guy would not take away all the gallons of imaginary Mio, I have drank with my head in her doll house. All the hours camping and laughing with my son mean the same if he wants to be a woman. As long as they're not the entitled, pretentious, shitbag trans people we read about, I'm good with it. We won't be doing that hormone shit either until their brain is completely developed, because my wife and I aren't shit parents.

    I mean, they are social sciences, if that's what you're going for, but that's a completely different usage of the word science. I know, I know, you hate things that aren't black and white, sorry. I may be getting you and Bware mixed up, but if a trans person asked you to call them she/her when they appear to be otherwise, would you? Still never saw you point out where I claimed you made such a statement. You have a very nice habit of claiming I do things, and then when provided evidence I do not, ignoring following up on it. Wonder why that is.

    Feminism is now a science, gender studies is a science, Folklore is a science, lawyers and judges are scientists, Translators are scientists, Librarians are scientists, News anchors, reporters, and journalists are scientists, got it. Check....not diluting at all lol. The fuck outta here with that shit.

    So surfing is now a science. Why am I not a decent human being now? For the statement about trans people I didn't make?
  24. Thanatos

    Trump Regime thread.

    Not sure what your point is there. It still says its a science. I specifically said it wasn't as empirical as biology. I really don't know how else to lay this out to you so you can understand it. It's come a long way since 2001 as a field as well. Just gonna point out you're going an awful long way out of your way to avoid having to be a decent human being and call people by the pronoun they want to be called by. Neuro psych uses the same fundamental building blocks as the others do, my friend. Psychology includes all fields of psychology. I do apologize if you somehow thought I was referring to... whatever psych would be without any of its sub-fields. I again ask what on earth does it consist of if it does not include any sub-fields?
  25. Omerta

    Trump Regime thread.

    ...MASSIVE difference, not exactly an apples to apples comparison. the same processes are used in algebra as trig. Neuro science is not the same or the same principles as other "sub branches" of psychology. And apparently you didnt read the original congressional document where they separate the other 2 types of science. I am not doing anymore research for you. https://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R42642.pdf straight from the original, congressional research on this.

    Trump Regime thread.

    .... I DID say psychology wasn't as empirical as biology. I specifically spelled that out in the same post, the very first sentence in my reply to you. Yes, when I say Psychology, I am referring to Psychology as a whole. Ngata, you're just being nonsensical here. By your logic if I say Math proves the quadratic equation, I am in fact wrong, because it is a subset of math- Algebra- that actually proves it. Do you understand how eminently confusing your way of claiming things would be? If the field of Psychology does not include all the sub-fields, you know, the ones that make up the field... then what in the fuck DOES it include? I don't believe in god, but just saying "god" as a higher purpose doesn't really tell me what you mean by that, so I can't agree/disagree as of yet.
  28. Omerta

    No...you take other scientists words for it lol. "This term is typically used when addressing education policy and curriculum choices in schools to improve competitiveness in science and technology development. It has implications for workforce development, national security concerns and immigration policy.[2] The science in STEM typically refers to two out of the three major branches of science: natural sciences, including biology, physics, and chemistry, and formal sciences, of which mathematics is an example, along with logic and statistics; the third major branch of science, social sciences, including psychology, sociology, and political science, are categorized separately from the other two branches of science, and are instead grouped together with humanities and arts to form another counterpart acronym named HASS - Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences." Where you at now smart ass ?
