Which part is incorrect?

Transgenderism affects everyone, especially younger generations because it tells people that it's okay to accept something that isn't true. The only reason someone couldn't get away with identifying as a gorilla, for example, is that it would be completely obvious that he/she wasn't one. People can get away with transgenderism only because their private parts aren't hanging out. I don't see why we should lend any more credence to a man identifying as a woman than to a man identifying as a gorilla.

I agree with Saddam mostly. Although, treating a transgender person for their delusion would be the same thing as treating a religious person for his/hers. I don't think either of those scenarios would be acceptable to much of society. For now, I'll continue to refer to trans people by their biological sex. They can call themselves whatever they want, but I don't have to accept it.

Mental treatment is far more acceptable to most of society than physical surgery.  As shocking as this may seem, your "I ain't holdin' with none of this here pee-cee bullshit" attitude isn't nearly as iconoclastic as you might think.  In fact, I'd go so far as to say that it's the "default" reaction of society to transsexuals.  The norm rather than the exception.

I'm against it for logical reasons though, not idealistic ones.

Then you shouldn't oppose it at all. Logically transgenderism does not affect you at all. There's no logical reason to oppose it. You are offended by it on some level, and therefore its idealistic. Aka a personal problem. That goes for anyone who opposes it.

Incorrect.

No one on TFES can beat me at SSB, but you're all welcome to try once the new one is released.

I will accept this challenge. Let's hope the 3DS version has online multiplayer. If not, I'll have the Wii U version too.

TFES SMASHFEST 2014

The 3DS version will have online play. And I think it's supposed to be out in the next couple of months.

It's on. I haven't played in years but I was a pro when I was 13.

I've played SSBM almost every day since it came out and won two tournaments. It won't be fun.

It's a dark comedy because there are people who spent $30 on the blu-Ray to see how the general public gets fucked over and then get upset about it.

I spent exactly $0 watching this movie.

I know, don't worry.

I think Superman would just instantly kill Batman. Batman is just a guy in a suit who can do karate and stuff.

Superman doesn't kill. You are out of your depth.

He could just put Batman in a really strong cage then.

I don't see any reason why people shouldn't be able to get sex changes or cosmetic surgery if they want.

I think that using surgery to radically alter your physical appearance and butcher your sexual organs is a poor way to deal with what is at heart a psychological issue.  I am actually an extremely liberal guy about most things, but I think that the notion that we should just accept this practice because "this is who these people are" is taking things a bit too far.  It is truly disgusting.  Whatever happened to just learning to accept ourselves for who we are?  Does that not apply if we have difficulty accepting that we are male, or female?

Because when you're not satisfied with who you are, just force other people to see you differently. If they don't accept your new identity, they're intolerant bigots.

I hope those third party controllers aren't shit like most third party controllers are. I couldn't imagine playing Smash Bros. on anything but an official Nintendo GameCube controller.

It's dangerous, deceptive, and regressive. It shows that it's fine to circumvent facts because they are uncomfortable, or don't line up with how an individual feels. What are your thoughts on this travesty of a social movement?

I don't know

then why are you posting?

All I know is that every actual bitcoin is represented physically.

Can you give me an example of something that isn't represented physically?

No.

Then this entire discussion is obviously redundant.

Usually an HDD or SSD.

Are they the only media that can be used to record a bitcoin?

Your wallet has the encryption keys. The blockchain has the addresses, and everyone mining bitcoins has information on every bitcoin transaction through the blockchain. That's how a transaction is verified as legitimate.
