I think there's always been homosexuality and gender dysphoria, it's not a new thing, we're just more aware of it.
I think the meaning of the word "transsexual" has changed with the advent of hormone treatments and surgical procedures that weren't previously available and it will change again as such technologies improve.
I don't think the social justice movement is to blame for recent changes in society, rather it's symptom of it.
I expect to have a say in my country's legal system but not on a case by case basis, I go by a social contract theory whereby choosing to live in a country is a choice to live under that country's laws, if I'm living in a country I can (as a citizen) push to have its laws changed but I have to respect them while they're still in effect, otherwise I should seek citizenship elsewhere.
Masculinity vs Femininity
I agree with his point but not how he's making it, I don't think this is a masculinity vs femininity problem but rather an ideological divide between realists and idealists, he admits that neither side is entirely male or female and it's my conjecture that neither ideology is inherently masculine or feminine.
I don't think men and women are the same, I would agree each gender has its own tenancies but I don't think the male nationalist and female globalist demographics are as pronounced as he thinks they are, I really think this is a mostly gender neutral ideological divide.
Apparently this program had male presenter, and is that a male teacher, and who are those other two men dancing with the kids? Granted it's not conclusive proof but it supports my theory that this is an ideological conflict.
I think it's an idealist notion that equality is homogeneity, because it's simple, enforceable, when men and women have different roles in society comparing who is getting a better deal is like comparing apples and oranges. The realist perspective is that absolute equality is impossible so as long as things aren't blatantly unfair then it's good enough and that treating people respectfully isn't necessarily the same as treating them equally.
Wow that makes me uncomfortable, in my experience it's not that women are putting it off but rather men (myself included) who are avoiding it, this whole reproduction thing is just weird and fucked up, selfishness aside I don't see myself being proud of having brought a child into this overpopulated and increasingly messed up world.
