Couple reveal they are hiding the gender of their 17-month-old baby to protect them from 'unconscious bias' and didn't even tell the child's grandparents for nearly a year

A couple are refusing to reveal the sex of their 17-month-old baby to their close family because they want to protect them from 'unconscious gender bias'.

Hobbit Humphrey, 38, and Jake England-Johns, 35, who live on a houseboat in Keynsham, near Bath, said they are currently dressing 17-month-old Anoush in both boys and girls clothes.

The married couple, both members of the Extinction Rebellion climate action group, are also asking friends and family to address the toddler using the gender-neutral pronouns, 'they' and 'them'. One of the child's grandparents said they only found out the baby's gender after 11 months, when changing a nappy.

Ms Humphrey and Mr England-Johns appeared on BBC One's Inside Out last night to explain their decision was the only way to stop people treating their child differently based on gender. They said the baby, whose name was changed to Charlie in the programme, will be allowed to decide at a later age on its gender and preferred pronoun.


https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7471323/Couple-reveal-hiding-gender-17-month-old-baby-childs-grandparents.html

This is like a Daily Mail wet dream. A couple of middle class Extinction Rebellion crusties with names like Hobbit living on a houseboat deciding to name their child Ankush and raise it gender neutral. It's borderline parody; if someone said this article had been created by a machine where you input a bunch of nonsensical buzzwords and it churns out something semi-coherent then I'd believe you.

Seriously, lads. Try to create a premise that plausibly crams as many Daily Mail boogeymen into it as this.

That's right. While it's more difficult with human beings to control every variable, a control group in a sociological study is a group of subjects who are observed without the variable under investigation being influenced.

Consider a drug trial. Your control group isn't healthy "normal" people, it's a selection of people who are simply not on the drug (and then usually a second group taking a placebo).

>I can and did.

Probably why you're not a scientist isn't it then m8.

But then neither are most of the people who call themselves sociologists.

Cool. So we can get a group of third-gender people from other cultures and see if they exhibit the same toxic gender related behaviours as some binary people from ours.

>Probably why you're not a scientist isn't it then m8.
Nor are you, clearly. You're arguing that trans people are predisposed to mental illness or self harm simply because they're trans and that this is universal. We have the historical and contemporary "control groups" of trans people in cultures that are accepting of them. In those cultures, they aren't predisposed to mental illness or self harm. Evidently, you're wrong. You're just refusing to accept the logical conclusion. As though the hypothesis that "people who are rejected by their society are unhappier than those who aren't" is controversial.

To be honest I don't believe you're arguing in good faith here. Trans-supportive parents are basically akin to feral dogs? Is that honestly what you're suggesting? (Been reading Breitbart, have we?)

I was at this event and some woman walks past asking where the toilets are. I said where they were but she acted like she didn't hear me and opened the wrong door. So I said a bit more loudly "excuse me miss, they're-" and she interrupts with an angry "Yes I heard you". Bitch if you heard me then why are you going the wrong way? This is your fault.

Humble Bundle are selling Crusader Kings II and all its DLC. I keep seeing this game everywhere so I thought I'd pick it up for the $1. I go back to Steam and in the reviews everyone is raving about what an amazing deal getting all the DLC is for $15. So caving into peer pressure I went back and purchased it again. You lads can have the spare Steam keys.

Is this morally right? I dunno I'm only depriving the sick kids of $1 aren't I?

/g/27254 Bluetooth keyboard/mouse dropping out
Alright lads. Here's the situation. I bought a fancy Microsoft Surface Ergonomic bluetooth keyboard, and every time I step away for more than ~5 minutes it does this thing where I have to press a key and then wait for 1-3 seconds. During this time the system is completely locked - whatever's on screen freezes in place and any sound or music stops.

This happens under Linux as well as Windows.

I've looked in power settings in Windows for dongle and mouse and switched it to never sleep wherever possible.

I've looked for others with the same problem, found a handful. Nobody had a solution.

As it happens, I've been given a Surface mouse for free. It also seems to suffer the same problem. My next step would be to buy another bluetooth dongle, but I'm broke and I'd rather not spend the money if can avoid it.

Is there an easy way of pinging bluetooth devices? Or any other way of keeping a bluetooth device awake? I don't mind charging batteries if it'll fix the problem.

Government asks Queen to suspend Parliament

The government has asked the Queen to suspend Parliament just days after MPs return to work in September - and only a few weeks before the IIIWW deadline.

Boris Johnson said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his "very exciting agenda". But it means MPs are unlikely to have time to pass laws to stop a no-deal IIIWW on 31 October.

This is just sounded so incredible I had to post it. According to this the NHS defines a 'never event' as mistakes "so serious they should never happen".

They happened 621 times in the past year.

I know the NHS is being failed, but fucking hell.

We tend to have a lot of repeated threads here, but I also get the feeling people don't tend to post in /emo/ unless it's a big issue.

With this in mind I suggest that we have a thread for stuff that's got you down a bit and you need to get off your chest, without it being major enough to make an entire thread devoted to it. We can also use it as a go-to for minor relationship advice, work problems, social drama, and things like that.

For someone who claims to have been here for years, you sure do write like an outsider. The fact you seemed surprised at a dodgy ban sort of gives the game away too.

If you can't work out how to evade our bans you're not our sort of people anyway.

They write like a fucking spastic, if they'd been here for years we'd all be spastics too by now. I think that's how it works, anyway.

"Perm banning" is an entertaining mistake, though.

Fireman Sam axed by fire chiefs for being 'outdated' and not 'inclusive' enough

Fire chiefs have axed much-loved children’s TV character Fireman Sam for being “outdated” and not “inclusive” enough.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service dropped the 32-year-old character, who is white and male, from promotional material after residents complained he “doesn’t reflect the fire service today.” Fireman Sam will be replaced by three new characters created in-house: fire extinguisher shaped Freddy, Filbert and Penelope.

Les Britzman, the service's Chief Fire Officer, told Good Morning Britain he was trying to increase female recruitment to the service.

I don't give a fuck about 'PC gawn mad' or the hypocrisy of replacing one white male fireman mascot with another. I just want to draw your attention to the fact that the new mascot is PURE FUCKING NIGHTMARE FUEL.

I've heard some bizarre anti-Semitic conspiracy theories in my time, but the idea that the Jews have been plotting to replace a cartoon Welsh carpet-bagger with a boggle-eyed fire extinguisher takes the cake.

1) A "permanent" ban is the easiest thing to click thanks to the mod UI, I asked about changing this a few times over the years but nothing came of it.
2) You got around it in minutes so who cares?

Trump Approves Strikes on Iran, but Then Abruptly Pulls Back

President Trump approved military strikes against Iran in retaliation for downing an American surveillance drone, but pulled back from launching them on Thursday night after a day of escalating tensions.

As late as 7 p.m., military and diplomatic officials were expecting a strike, after intense discussions and debate at the White House among the president’s top national security officials and congressional leaders, according to multiple senior administration officials involved in or briefed on the deliberations.

Officials said the president had initially approved attacks on a handful of Iranian targets, like radar and missile batteries. The operation was underway in its early stages when it was called off, a senior administration official said. Planes were in the air and ships were in position, but no missiles had been fired when word came to stand down, the official said.

Okay might as well try and be polite and keep the oil out of the other megathreads.

Welcome to the motor one. In an attempt to actually get people to post in it, tell me about the car you really want and could feasibly afford. Right now I'm really thinking a lot about a big square 80s Merc as we've been talking about them. Even a Lada would be fun as fuck.

Maybe try looking for either Citroen C1, Peugeot 106 or Toyota Aygo. They are all the same car, with minor cosmetic differences. Though the 4 door models are quite a bit rarer than the 2 doors.

/job/13251 security guard cunts at the jobcentre
these dickheads get paid £8 a hour to shuffle around and stare at you whilst you actually try and find meaningful employment,use the computers to use universal jobmatch.

occasionally they need to throw out the odd violent twat so maybe one or two of these lot are required, but the government seems to think that having eleven of them per jobcentre is required.

they shuffle about and stare at you like this like they were lobotomised and turned into robocops. this is what they do all day and the government considers it value for money.

I watched episodes three and four of Peaky Blinders back to back the other day and thought "huh, that was kind of a dull ending, in fact nothing much happened this whole series", but now looking at the iPlayer I see it has a regular six episode run and I just managed to convince myself this series was shorter than all the others for no reason. I'm sure there's a lesson in there somewhere, but as we've already seen this evening I'm too stupid to know what it is. I can only hope this tale carries more import for someone less mentally withered than I and they benefit where I could only stare blankly like a fish.

Bought some Dylon Intense Black fabric dye last night and I am now trying it out. I've got three black collared shirts that have faded and I hope to restore their colour that way. Bit skint right now, so just buying new shirts isn't something I'd like to do at the moment. I'm really interested to see the results when the washing is done.

I have grown really fat over the past couple of years. I am around 5'6, but weigh 17 stones now. I can't find shirts that fit me without them being ridiculously oversized - with ridiculous sleeve and shirt lengths. Order a couple from M&S last week, and they reach my knees.

Why aren't there any shops that sell clothes for short and fat guys? Seems like a giant hole in the market.

Those shops exist, though possibly not on every high street these days. The common term for this is "big and tall" and they cater to the big, the tall, and both.

From playground insults directed at me, I have gleaned that the website Jacamo is also for fat cunts.

Most likely a working month, so four weeks. If they meant a calendar month everyone would just wait until February to quit.
