Where were you in the Simmons thread.
going down the slippery slope: noSo denying (the extent of) biological sex differences should be suppressed?
By contrast, Tao's statement against racism is being attacked as dishonourable and reprobate by some who would rather he keep his views to himself (why, though, is anyones guess and the suspicions of racism it inevitably produces). Yet those who defend Simmons proclaim his right to freedom of speach (the same one they would deny Tao), even when that was never up for question. The double-standard is mindboggling.
The hardest social constructivist certainly fit that bill. Don't know why they shouldn't be suppressed by your standards.But you (or better and less personal: anyone expressing certain viewpoints on biological sex differences) with the clear intention to discriminate / divide / intolerate / strive for an ideologic agenda / whatever viewpoint nothing to do with the pure biology ... shouldn't deserve any platform
You realise that you post in a forum where political discussion is not allowed and where the politics forum was shut down yet here you are complaining about censorship. My issue is that if people are to be allowed to post political viewpoints, there should be no half-measures. Various viewpoints should be accepted or else that is censorship and totalitarianism...
Arguably anti-racism isn't political whereas racism is. That sounds contradictory, but when you think about it, being opposed to people being just jerks isn't the same as being a jerk.
AFAIK you have very manly men, very womanly women, very womanly men and very manly women, and everything in between, both from a pure biological POV as based on the way people feel about themselves.Biological sex as a spectrum.
Sex (not gender) is a very well defined term in biology. All animals that sexually reproduce can be divided in classes of sex. There's no spectrum, you're either one or the other. No one is more man than another man. Just like no odd number is more odd than another odd number. Humans are animals first and foremost, and what is true for all animals is therefore also true for humans.
PS: That is not to discredit a more complex understanding of sex/gender (a triad of biological/psychological/social categories), but just that the other dimensions don't nullify our evolutionary formed biology.
So this lad decided, along with his team to withdraw from the race and get his head checked out as he felt dizzy after the fall today. Why is it when Bennet crashed the other day and was wobbling all over the pavement after smashing his helmet, he was allowed to carry on after saying he was ok, when obviously he was not. Is it going to take someone to have a serious crash after an head injury for something to be done? Luckily Bennet seemed to recover ok and get through the stage.

I just noticed Geoghegan Hart dropped from 26th to 921st in the UCI world rankings, with the 2021 Giro having completed.
Lot of places to make up at the Tour, even though I don't quite understand, how he can drop that far?
I think it’s because the season was in a different order last year. So those GC riders that did well at the Giro last year but not this year won’t have had many scoring opportunities. And he missed his due to concussion
