📉 Bill I guess I'm a simple man and prefer to swing trade and hold long puts several months out in overbought large caps. Currently holding nov $msft
🗜️ Mx That's not a bad strategy at all. Your LEAP put will make money from the increased volatility as well as delta, if the underlying goes down. Also your time decay is very small and it costs you very little to hold the position.
🔻 Trinity No, but while the lack of eyesight is a physical ailment, being born as the wrong gender is more of a psychological ailment. Sure, scientists in a thousand years or so will probably have a pill to cure gender dysphoria. But for now, eh. If they look like a dude, and dress like a dude, they're a dude to me. There's no epidemic of trans-committed crime, they're actually more likely to be killed: channel4.com/news/...
🗜️ Mx Those people exist and they're entitled to life, happiness and a right to be employed. Just please don't show me "articles" about gender euphoria being normal and something that can happen to anyone. It's a severe (though non-violent) mental disease and it should not be normalized.

🔻 Trinity I too believe in the abolishment of gender but probably in a dramatically different way. If you think sex is determined by chromosomes, what about the (somewhat atypical) third sex chromosome in many? It's possible to be XY, XX, XXY, XYY, etc. Doesn't that go against the idea of any sort of binary in terms of sex?
📉 Bill Very interesting, that sounds like a good strat
📉 Bill Stock market thread 7/13, go:
🗜️ Mx My weekly strategy is SPY butterflies in either direction, hedged with an equal VXX butterfly. If I'm right about the market direction, SPY makes money. If am wrong, VXX makes money. The key is to position your P/L ratio as high as possible, so you make more from the winning fly.

😏 Yt L. For my own investment strategy I'm selling puts on Wells Fargo at 24.5 for 7/17. I don't think it'll drop that low, and if it does I'd be fine owning it for a while, I think it's mostly stable with decent dividends.
🤔 David @mx Since the post was deleted I'll ping you here. I agree that identities do not affect the quality of a person's opinion. Yet, the color, gender, or sexual orientation of a person may strongly relate to their held beliefs. Including a greater number of those people will also increase contributions in support or defense of those positions. So, actively promoting and including people from all backgrounds greatly assists the diversity of contributions. Do you disagree?
🐊 Andromeda Pie Just Google it dude. You can even hit I'm feeling lucky.
🐊 Andromeda Pie If you took a minute to Google it you will be satisfied in knowing you're wrong. But you won't and we know why. You would rather spend your energy on hate and bigotry. Go ahead, prove me wrong. Google it. Buy a book. Read. Learn.
🔻 Trinity Since when is transgenderism sexualized? Gender as a social concept is beyond what one's genitals are. If glitches like these are so common, let's think of them as features. The bugfixes are considered torture and it's not compromising any security functions. It's possible to address human sexuality without any form of perversion. Let's tell kids that there are people like them and that they aren't alone if they feel... wrong.
🗜️ Mx Transgenderism is a mental disorder that exists on a scale so minuscule that it makes no sense to include it in grade school education. Otherwise, we have to include Trekkies, Wiccans, Voodoo practitioners and all types that believe they're somehow different than everyone else.
📉 Bill This discussion of "transgenderism" shows the true power of propaganda in modern day society. Where were transgender people centuries ago?
🔻 Trinity Humans are, as far as we know, unprecedented. Computers (as we know them) do not exist in nature, yet we can build them. Our brains are pretty complicated compared to most other species. Glitches, like being a woman despite being born as a man, should be expected.
🗜️ Mx "Glitches" being the keyword here. Everyone is entitled to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. However, people with mental "glitches" should stay out of education. Nobody under 13 should be exposed to anything remotely sexualized, let alone any sexuality with glitches in it.

🔻 Trinity ah, feck off. it's pretty standard scientific consensus that this stuff is valid: health.clevelandcl.... but, yes, the ability to endure slurs is a necessity in order to participate in intellectual conversation. to me it's odd though that something like the n-word is permitted on a seemingly professional site like this :shrug:
🕴️ Matthew Townsend If transgender isn't a thing, are we rolling back intersex too? Do we go back to chucking hermaphrodites off cliffs? Are we going to be like Iran with there 0% homosexuality rate? What are people like Caster Semenya?
🗜️ Mx Intersex is an anomaly of the chromosomes - an unfortunate genetic condition. Intersex people can do nothing to change that condition, much like regular people can do nothing to change their gender. Nobody is "trans"! You are that what you're born. I don't want anyone thrown off a cliff. However, if you tell me that you woke up this morning feeling that your gender changed, I'd advise you to seek mental help and not mutilate your body. Also, kindly stay out of education!

🌋 Pod Unk I'm bear gang, pretty massively short SPY (via SPXS calls) over the mid-term (1yr+)
🌘 Alana because I'm transgender, and it honestly just fukin wears me down to see slurs thrown around casually. stopped using a forum I liked because one of the users had "tr*nny" in their name. it just sucks, you know? I'll go somewhere else, and then the racists and people who are okay with racists will stay. evaporative cooling, if you will. check out decriminalizenatur... btw.
🗜️ Mx First off, there is no such thing as "transgender". You can mutilate your body all you want and take all the pharmaceuticals you can, you still won't be able to change your gender. You're just going to look weird and condemn yourself to a lifetime of social agony. Secondly, nobody owes you comfort and happiness. If words offend you, then you're already vulnerable to all forms of communication and you should stay away from people in general - both online and offline alike.
