I heard about this. Apparently not everyone of the LGBT persuasion was impressed by Auntie Harris's virtue signaling. It was cringey.

But hey: these are their rules. We're all supposed to say our pronouns now when we introduce ourselves even if it's totally obvious.

Fredo's sin was making a joke about it. It's totally serious business, you see.

The pronoun shit isn't LGBT, it's just T.

LGB may go along out of political solidarity, but gay and bi men are conventionally "he" and lesbian and bi women are conventionally "she".

LGBTs are funny, except for the Tees

They are hilarious

I just figured out why robinson is here so much lately. I went to consult Encyclopedia Dramatica about something and it's down. Between that and his latest sock being banned from International Skeptics, he is again bored enough to come here a lot more.

It is a tribute to Robinson's programming ability that robinson can be bored. I won't get into the philosophical issues about whether an AI can "really" be bored. As per Alan Turing that is not relevant. :)

You always have a sock at (it's not TOP) International Skeptics.

The rest is reasonable surmise.

I notice you don't deny the bit about ED. :)

Or is it, much more likely, you are bored and trolling again?

Very self-referential.

The AI recognizes a kindred spirit among ...

Still undetermined whether the robinson AI knows it's an AI or "thinks' it's really Robinson.

Let alone whether it can itself distinguish a human from an AI. Call that the Turing test mark 2.

True, and I know that, but it's also more of a non-binary or "genderqueer" thing. Most transsexuals who can pass prefer the traditional pronouns for the gender they perform.

If I responded to every idiotic claim online (and denial is a response) I would have to simply blow my brains out. Yeah, it would be that ridiculous to dignify most shit with a response, even a funny one.

However, an evasion that passes the Turing test. :)

It's funny, because when people post "Evasion noted", they don't actually make a note of it.
