Re: NZ Transgender Weightlifter Cleared to Compete by the IOC

A gentle reminder that while you’re all pontificating about fairness and inclusion, most of you will be entirely unaffected, both in terms of safety and opportunity to play sport, whatever way current or future rules and regulations go.

Re: Post COVID work environment for those who haves productive tools that can be carried anywhere

In a move that will be fairly commonplace in this part of the world, my organisation is implementing a flexible working policy that mandates a minimum two days per week in the office. Areas of the business are free to stipulate certain days where employees in that area are expected to be in the off...

It's pointless having this debate with someone who views transgender women as "fake women". Sorry, but that kind of bigotry will never see the need for transgender rights.

Re: Caleb Clarke - A Waste of time

It has become frustratingly obvious that more & more players in Rugby Aoteoroa spend more time looking at themselves on the big screen, none more so than Clarke. Every time there is a stop in play you will see Clarke (ever aware of the camera angles) hover into sight. He can be seen looking at hims...
