Happy primary day! Woke up to see Trump retweeting Jill Stein's conspiracy theories about Biden's cognitive abilities. Now with Sanders playing footsie with the idea in his Fox News town hall and Cenk & Chapo pushing the same angle, it looks like the garbage people Voltron is finally coming together! Gotta love seeing Trump, Dr. Jill Stein, B. Sanders, Cenk, Fox News and Chapo all coalesce around one idea

Reason User Banned (duration pending): conspiracy theories
I have not seen any evidence that supports the strategic assumption, but there are a whole host of reasons a country might go down this route: 1. test the efficacy of a bioweapon; 2. affect national outcomes, say, a national election; 3. determine the weak points of nation states for future exploitation; 4. distract from economic movements or economic threats while harmful and war like international fiscal policy quietly implemented; 5. a test run for a worse and more targeted bioweapon; 6. blame deflection, say, onto a terrorist group. Has any work been done or facts presented to support any hypothesis like this by any objective source of information?

There are many allegations against Trump also. I do wonder about the timing of this allegation to come to light after the nomination is all but almost confirmed. I also want to trust people. If I was given the choice between Biden and Trump, and I know that a no vote or a vote for a third party would make it more likely to elect Trump, then given the current state of the world with the pandemic response and everything else, I would vote for Biden. I think it’s more important to vote agains the modern Republican Party by voting for he most likely democrat to win, than it is to vote for the candidate that most represents your individual views.

EtcetEraThread THIS IS WHY YOU VOTE. ESPN: Trump’s Justice Department on Connecticut Case: “Don’t treat trans athletes as girls
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Transphobia
Do you want to say that only trans people may take part of the discussion in this thread? Are only gay and bi people allowed to talk in gay/bi sex threads? Are only males and females allowed in male/female threads? Sorry, but this is nonsense in a discussion board. I'm quite new here (also I lurked since the beginning and for years on the old site), but I also find it quite worrying how everyone that is not full onboard your train is directly put in the "alt right and tranphobic" corner. I mean....if we have the whole spectrum of 100% tolerant lefts far to the right corner of racist and transphobic cunts on the right I think the people you banned here are 99% on your side. But you dismiss them as transphobic....This behaviour doesn't lead to more acceptance. I'm from germany and I only encouter this "there is only black or white" mentality way more in the US than in germany. It seems to me like there is no "gray area" at all in your culture, no matter if its about politics or opinions about sexuality, gender and topics like that. IF it were for transphobic reasons, then those people would also argue against trans men in sports, wouldn't they? Why are they only concerned about trans women in sports? Because they "worry" about the fairness in sports and it is nothing about transphobia at all. Isn't this proof that it is not due to transphobic reasons at all? It's not like there are no cases at all, where trans woman won competitions by a landslide and broke records:There is many, many more and there are also many cis women in sports who said that they have a disadvantage against trans women. I don't say that trans woman may not compete with cis woman. But there have to be rules, like the testosterone level or something like that. I'm not an expert at all, but sports have to be fair...and again, it is not transphobic at all to claim this! I and many other in here don't have a problem at all with trans men competing with cis men. I'm a cis man, I'm 100% for acceptance and tolerance, but the bans in here are mostly very questionable for folks that demand acceptance and tolerance. No, you don't need to accept alt right stuff. No, you don't need to tolerate transphobic stuff, but do you really, really want to put the people that voiced some concerns in here in the "alt right and transphobic" corner? Really?

Red Text Remember that general hostility rules still apply. For example, do not accuse members, even without naming them, of "supporting a rapist" or discrediting the victim if they choose to vote for Biden. Likewise, do not accuse members of not caring about marginalized people if they choose to not vote. Avoid metacommentary.
Hey all, This is not me being the OP. This is just a single, centralized place to discuss what's become a fairly hot-button topic here so we don't get a slew of threads, counter-threads, etc. etc. In short, the positions we've seen outlined are : Voting is important, all the way up and all the way down the ticket, for reasons of power and politics. The Republicans represent an existential threat to the wellbeing of millions of vulnerable Americans in a way the Democrats simply do not, even a Democrat like Joe Biden. Biden still has a very long way down to go until he's half so bad as Trump. Ergo, it's your responsibility to vote for him, even if you find him incredibly objectionable (which some people disagree with in the first place), simply because the other guy is that much worse. Not doing so, in this model, is an expression of privilege, as a typically blue voter sitting out is, in our 2 party, system, effectively the same as a nonvoter switching sides. A vote is a personal expression of conscience and morality based on an evaluation of each candidate individually. Joe Biden is being accused of sexual assault. He voted for the Iraq War, and he voted against bussing, and he voted for the crime bill, and many other things beside. His platform is insufficient to face the coming climate and economic crises of the coming decades. Trump being terrible is irrelevant, because Biden has made himself ineligible by default. Ergo, demanding that people vote for him is a blind expression of partisanship at best and a cruel act of violence at worst, as you force people hurt by Biden and people like Biden to lend their support. This last part can be especially important. There's a great deal of trauma wrapped up in that. Don't vote for Biden, but vote downballot. In this argument, voting is a political position, but it allows more for the understanding of a vote as a personal expression as well. By splitting this difference, it comes to a course of action: namely, Trump is unacceptable, but so is Biden, ergo, just vote for the downballot candidates in an effort to staunch the bleeding should Trump win a second term. There are most likely more positions than this. If you feel like I've misconstrued one of the arguments, by all means, correct me; I'm doing my best to give a fair assessment to each.

EtcetEraThread Is it just me, or have postings on Era kind of slowed down?
Reason User Banned (permanent): inflammatory metacommentary
As a lurker who came over after Neogaf, I find myself checking the site less and less. - The trigger happy ban policy is absurd. I get the impression users are scared to have an opinion that doesn't fit the mods agenda. This leads to nothing more than echo chamber with no real discussion to be had. Imagine in your personal life if you shut down every conversation where you disagreed with someone. - Awful topic threads. The same posters over and over posting personal topics that are of no interest to anyone but themselves, to get a sense of validation that I assume is absent in their own lives. - Negativity and toxicity. The constant bickering is exhausting. It feels like everyone is playing morality top trumps, trying to out do each other and be faux outraged by any slightly divisive opinion. - I hate Trump as much as anyone, but the constant daily threads about him and his party on here are depressing. It would be nice to have a break for a bit. I swear posters get off on posting about his latest bullshit. We get it. He's a total prick. - Opinion threads posted as fact like a BuzzFeed clickbait headline. - Threads with people threatening to take their own lives. This is a serious topic obviously, but it seems to be the same people over and over who never take onboard any of the genuinely thoughtful and caring feedback from other posters. I know this is a complicated topic, and these people deserve and need attention and help, but I wish just they would help themselves. I feel like stepping away from Era and its negativity would probably do them some good. It's just all so tiresome. I think I'm done with the forum, checking it out of a daily reflex doesn't add anything positive to my life tbh.

What are the mods doing in this thread? Its not transphobia to say that it is NOT a simple question whether trans athletes should be able to compete in women's leagues. I think the question should be asked on a sport by sport basis. In MOST cases its not an issue. For contact sports with lots of injuries I'd probably lean more on the side of not having them compete or asking the athlete to compete in a mens league instead. Fully expecting to get banned for having a nuanced position here though...

Reason User Banned (Permanent): Transphobic concern trolling. Previously banned for pedantry in threads concerning trans issues.
Why are these people being insta-banned for a month? It's sad that I have to worry that me even asking this makes me worried I'll get banned as well. Is this site taking the stand that thinking in any way that trans-women competing in with women opens the door to unfair advantages is necessarily transphobic? Can somebody not have the view that the intention behind separations of genders was meant to be around the practical understanding that male and female physiology is different and that can matter in sports. And is it transphobic to recognize that transition does not always remove these physiological differences? Like, I'll admit that I'm not as familiar as those who are going through these transitions, not anywhere close. But I am under the understanding that transition isn't the same for everybody. This is entirely separate from whatever the transphobic Trump administration is trying to do and I don't really believe they are coming to anything here with any good intentions. But to me, the insta-month long ban on this is alarming. I am under the perception here that you can expect swift bans here now in a very inconsistent way. Not that I would necessarily want the exact same thing to happen with black issues, but it is clear that there is much more waffling on the moderation on those issues.

I do actually see how there is an argument for this, in that men have an obvious physical advantage over women. So much so that people have created segregated sports/competetions for women. I do hope biological women do have an avenue to excel, but i dont think they will compare favourably to the average trans athlete. Because banning trans people probably wont go over well. I can totally see a future where gender segregation in sports is gone. Or drugs are allowed to level the playing field. But unless it becomes a super common thing, i dont really think its worth caring about.

Sounds like hormone therapy for 1 year should be a requirement to help level the playing field when it comes to muscle mass. But increased skeletal structure / being taller / increased bone mass will always be a general advantage of Trans-women who went through puberty before transitioning. There's no clear cut answer, especially for sports that highly depend on height like basketball, and height / reach tends to help in most sports. Edit : sorry, I was writing on mobile and didn't realize I left out biological when I mentioned men and puberty, and I realize that was stupid to say it that way in first place when I can just say Trans women so I changed it to that.

I think this would be a valid argument if it weren't for the fact that even mid-teen male athletes are just way better than world-class female athletes. As far as world record 100m sprints go, which I would argue if one of the most impressive feats of strength, the world record youth time is 10.15 (16 year boy) while the current world record for women is 10.49 (which, by the way, in itself is way faster than the 2nd fastest). If the 16 year-old boy transitioned, are you saying he would not completely dominate the sport, easily breaking the world record? Looking at a more technical sport like soccer, it's not even close. In my country, which is one of the best internationally when it comes to women, the boys-16 team of one of the top teams played the women's national team. In my experience this almost never happens in top-level football so it's an interesting example to look at. The result? 3-0, and the boys played with one less player in the second half in an effort to even out the odds.
