Replying To Whammo86:  "Not really though is it.

Most people don't need wheelchairs but we as a society rightly look to make the world accessible for wheelchair users.

You were the one asking for the explanation, you're deliberately now trying to be a smart ar** and not want to learn.

There definitely aren't just 2 sexes. It's objective fact. Whether or not you want to understand the reasoning why is down to you. Be happy in your ignorance, I'm glad there's some mature people in the world who look to see it as it actually is rather than what they want to tell themselves it is."
There are just 2. Some people want to change theirs but they still end up being 1 of the 2.

No you're mixing up gender with sex.

Wait, no, 9 pages of nonsense with nothing to do with the GAA?
Lads, there are plenty other forums out there to debate the issues you've been going over. Sometimes threads can go off on a tangent, but this one is ridiculous."
You are right and I am posting off topic myself.

The thread was taken off on a tangent though and there was just Ill informed opinions written, so now that this stuff is out there it does need to be responded to.

A bit of common sense. I'm leaving this topic.

Quite a few posters really wallowing in their ignorance

You can simply not click on it and get on with your day.

The entire world wide web is there for you to enjoy but you chose to post a message in this tiny corner to complain.

I had ignored it for the guts of 9 pages. That was my first post in this thread. If every thread runs off like this one, it'll be hard to find the ones about GAA, in a GAA forum. Some threads run off topic, for a bit, but are then steered back or peter out.
People need to have some cop on and try to stick to topics as much as possible.
It's for the same reason on forums like Boards, that people post about GAA in the GAA section etc.
The entire world wide web doesn't have many very active GAA-dedicated forums. For those that are, let's try to keep them that way.
Otherwise, what's to stop threads being created on all sorts of random issues.

Theres nothing happening in the GAA World at the moment,except for retirements.I find it interesting whats going on with the thinking about our biological make up,am not saying I understand it at all.
I also find it most interesting that posters,though they dislike the content of a thread,still feel the urge to post just to complain about other posters thinking...such intolerance.
I have never understood what makes people gay and what makes them attracted/attractive to their own sex.I fully accept it ,maybe there is something biologically that's instinctively pushing them in that direction.
We male hetrosexuals are driven by instinct to reproduce,hence the urge to have sex with females.

Even though you know whats happening on the thread you cannot refrain from posting on it just to complain,...the mind boggles!

You've completely missed the point. I've reminded people that this is a GAA forum. I also did refrain from posting in it, as you'll have noticed for the guts of 9 pages. Easily enough. I felt it was a point that needed to be made though. Telling people that a GAA forum is generally for GAA related discussion is hardly mind-boggling in fairness. Your mind is easily boggled, if you think so.
The topics themselves are well worth debating actually. There are more suitable places than a GAA forum. I have a strong interest in genetics and human physiology and if I want to discuss these topics I'll do so in a forum for that type of discussion.

Tradition of throwing in the ball.I believe Kerry played a game in America in the 1930s . Jack Dempsey ,world heavyweight boxing champion,threw in the ball.He asked one of the players what was the procedure and the player replied "throw the ball over your head and then run like hell-you might get hurt"

There is no games on right now. You can rehash the same debates about competition formats with the same people arguing over the same things over again or dublin and financial support compared to other counties in other threads again and again

This is a GAA forum but you cant simply talk about GAA alone. Boards does have a GAA forum but still has off topic threads where people can discuss issues other than GAA in that threads
There is nothing going on right now. Of course people will discuss other issues in this time

And you are welcome to do so in whatever forum you choose but coming on here repeatedly displaying your intolerance for what other posters might be discussing is not complementing any discussion.Nobody is forcing you to click on this thread.Have you been posting much on the other threads here this morning or are you just obsessed with this thtead?

To answer your last question, yes I have. I've posted in other threads this morning on GAA topics. You'll find a few in the retirements thread if you're particularly interested.
'Obsessed', is posting a reminder to people that this is a GAA forum? All I've done since is clarify this point in response to those who replied to me and give my reasons for doing so. You can keep throwing around words like intolerance all you want, if you want to keep missing the point. I've posted the same previously when threads descended into debates about Israel/Palestine, Trump etc. As I've mentioned, it's a topic that's well worth debate, but not really a whole thread on a GAA dedicated discussion forum. Can you actually argue that point, rather than throwing around labels?
In fairness to KillingFields, he has actually made an argument on the issue.

I'll stretch the legs so and leave you at it, as I've made my point. I might pop back for a look, if this is thread is hitting 20 pages just to check if there's any hint of GAA talk. Take it handy.
