Welcome!

Welcome to the Nerdfighter Ning!

We hope you have a nice time hanging out here. There's one thing though... Running a website has a few costs associated with it. There's the physical server hosting, and you've got to make sure your domain doesn't expire. Any donations towards this would be most appreciated.

Striving towards a Gender-less Society? 24 Replies

As someone who is Agender Pansexual I have never understood the point of gender roles in our society. Its just something that I don't personally see. Do you think that as society progresses these 'gender roles' we have will dissipate? And is there…Continue

Let's play Crusader Kings 2: The Quest for Britannia!

Warning, slight usage of strong language between videos. 

In this series, Tam ventures into the grimy past of Britain and the known world with an unlikely ally, the king of Wessex, King Dar Lando. Whilst he manages the uncoof lords of the south, Tam himself shall battle the grumpy sods that inhabit Pictland, the ancient north eastern Kingdom of Scotland. Who shall die and who will prosper? That is anyone's guess.

Tropes: Stuffed in the Fridge

Tropes are all around us, on TV, in books, film, and video games. They  allow us to compartmentalize concepts so that our brains don't have to waste too much processing power over-thinking certain ideas, which is both good and bad. After all, when two guys show up with bad Italian/Brooklyn accents in nice suits, our brain tells us that they are gangsters and we don't have to over think it. The authors, directors, and character actors of the world would tell us this is a good thing. After all, these two goons will probably be killed off in the next scene by our hero and the audience doesn't need twelve minutes of back story to understand…

Freelance work is dangerous no doubt, but at least you are normally the one doing the hunting. Will the commander be able to avoid the space pirates that plague the Galaxy? Will he be able to resist the road to easy money by nefarious means?...

"Well, I stipulated that sex and gender are not the same thing. What makes us sexual beings, are not necessarily the same things that make gender roles. In the traditional sense, gender roles pertain to what function a parent has in a family unit."

Are there political/social views that others have to share for a friendship to be maintained?

Personally if someone has negative views about my sexuality or gender expression that arn't changing I cant find it in myself to be friends with someone who hates a big part of who I am.I have mostly found that it is social orders that are the deal breaker for me since they are the more personal thing while political views I love for there to be diversity between me and the people that I spend my time with.What are things that you just cant look past?See More
