    gen·der
    /ˈjendər/
    noun
    1. 1.
      either of the two sexes (male and female), especially when considered with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones. The term is also used more broadly to denote a range of identities that do not correspond to established ideas of male and female.

    You are not even trying to have arguments grounded in good faith anymore. You have switched to blatant lies and editing to push your agenda.

    Sad

    I edited to direct your attention to the part that directly contradicts your assertion.

    You edit out part of a definition and think it reinforces your point...

    I have no words to describe the level you will drop too

    Well of course you don't, as long as the people doing the "recognizing" hate all the people you hate. :smile:

    Is there such a thing as a non-political organization?
    The real issue ought to be HOW MUCH POLITICS is in organization.
    I am sure The American College of Pediatricians is far less political
    than feminist organizations are.

    There is a distinction between organisations created with a general purpose in a particular field which may go on to vote on relevant political issues and organisations created to support a specific political position. The American College of Pediatricians is very much in the latter group.

    I don't object to the existence of such organisations, even when I disagree with their positions - that's free speech. The American College of Pediatricians was clearly created with a very generic name to try to mask it's nature and purpose when they publish reports like and to trick casual readers in believing it was the position of a mainstream professional medical organisation. I pointed out these facts in the thread so everyone reading it can understand the background.

    Something like the Union of Concerned Scientists?
    "union"
    "concerned"
    "scientists"
    Sounds like a neutral body of civic minded, intelligent, knowledgeable
    scientific people, doesn't it?
    Actually, for $25 you too can become a "concerned scientist."

    http://leftexposed.org/2015/12/union-of-concerned-scientists/
    The Union of Concerned Scientists is a left-wing advocacy organization that
    spreads unscientific alarmism about environment and energy topics. It is
    currently bragging about being a major architect and proponent of using the
    federal RICO Act against executives at fossil fuel companies and nonprofit
    think tanks, such as The Heartland Institute.


    Despite the impression given by its name and the image the way in which the
    media portrays it, the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) is not a professional
    scientific organization; in fact, for a $25.00 donation, you can also become a
    “concerned scientist.” Though founded in 1969 by faculty, including some scientists,
    and students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge,
    Massachusetts, UCS’ mission from the beginning has never been the pursuit of
    knowledge through scientific discovery. It has instead pursued left-wing advocacy on
    technology, environmental, and energy issues—regardless of what the scientific data
    have shown.

    It supported a New York Attorney General investigation against ExxonMobil using the
    state’s outdated 1921 Martin Act, which has been called unconstitutional
    .

    Yes, but what does that have to do with this thread?

    You challenged an organization as being politically right
    I pointed out that lots of organizations are politically left,
    in fact, most organizations are left wing. In Lenin's book
    "What is to be done" he pointed out that it is not good to
    be openly Marxist, but rather, penetrate existing groups
    and convert them to Marxist ones.
    And so, gender studies becomes another Marxist front.
    Gender has little to do with Marxism, but you would be
    wrong to think this.

    I very specifically and deliberately didn't challenge them for being "politically right". I challenged them for using their intentionally generic name to promote political opinion as scientific fact. Nothing I said had anything to do with any perception of "right" or "left" (labels I don't like in the first place) so anything you perceive in my threads based on those labels is entirely projected by you.

    When the American Academy of Pediatrics calls for assault weapons bans and gay adoption, they also are engaging in politics disguised as science.
