Hypothetical Fight to the Death: Men vs. Women
« on: December 12, 2010, 01:29:05 am »
So here is a hypothetical situation which really got me thinking.

Say there is a world-wide battle to the death of men vs. women. There is no further elaboration aside from "men vs. women". Every person on Earth MUST participate in this battle. Would you fight on the side of your biological sex or with your gender? Which ever you choose, do you think they would accept you on their team?  Would you feel obligated to fight along side the people with your same bodies or minds? And what of the androgynes and IS folk? Where do you guys fit in to this battle?

I would personally attempt to join the men's team, though I'm not sure they would accept me considering I do not fully present as male. I image that the women's team would assume I was only joining the men's team because I was sure the women would lose, and that I was betraying the sex I was born.

I'd be more inclined to join the women....you ever been in a fight with a girl? They fight DIRTY.

Plus the mens side has the disadvantage of having more vulnerable crotch areas :P

To force me to take part in such a battle you would have to kill me.

I am IS - even though I didn't know it initially, and lately I have begun to realise that though I chose surgery to become female bodied and indeed would still unequivocally choose to be female bodied, in many ways my core identity is inescapable IS - so I become a refusnik - a conscientious objector and I will not fight for either side. Instead I would become an outlaw and fight only for peace.

I don't wanna fight the girls.. but I'd rather not fight the men either...

I think I'll go hide in the mountains instead.

Same, women fight dirty and men have brute strength. If I had to though I'd be on the guys side, I think they would let me.

I would join the women for one simple reason.

If the men win, the human race is extinct in a generation.

If the women win, there's a reasonable chance of keeping the species going.

Used to be women were to smart to get into fights to the death.  These days, not so much.

Same here.  I'll be hiding out in the mountains too or fighting for peace.

I agree with the "go hide in the mountains."

I'd be on the men's side. Preferably in the background in a more tactical or technical role (or alternatively, and what would be more likely, some form of driver or pilot), but on the men's side none the less.

I'm pretty damn sure I'd be accepted. I seem to be accepted in "real life" without any issues (I've been on T a while, I live day to day without revealing my background). I see no reason why it'd change for a hypothetical situation.

I sure wouldn't be accepted into the women's team, anyway! :laugh:

I would feel no obligation to even consider joining the women's side. I don't consider myself female. I can't feel any sense of betrayal towards a group I've never really been a part of.

I suppose my response would be more interesting if I wasn't all uncool and binary fitting, but ah well... I am what I am! :laugh:

Besides, there's always a chance an all man army might start "going greek" - especially after all the women have been wiped out. How could I not fight with that side? >:-)

I would lead a successful peace negotiating team and end the hostilities returning harmony to the world and of coarse winning me a Nobel Peace Prize award  ::)

And if the women did wipe out the men, I'd come down out of the mountains and be one of the most eligible bachelors around.   >:-)  If they didn't shoot me first.   :o

The men would not stand a change.  If it is true that women begin to cycle together after a time.  And they are armed.  Well what else can be said.

In reality I'd say two things.

1.  Men are far more socialized into naturally fitting into the the mechanism of an army.  They are more trained in team mentality, accepting leadership, falling into ranks and working together to achieve common adjectives.  The most superior organizational skills combined with the quickest and most vigorous execution tends to win.

2.  Men not only invented thermonuclear weapons, they used them.

I would probably be inclined to join the men's team, but I feel like some jerk would probably "friendly fire" me "just to be safe".  In fact, due to my unpassability, it would probably be seen as a dumb ploy to get behind enemy lines by the girl's team. :(

If hiding in the mountains is a legit option, I choose that!

Yeah, I'd fight on the female team. I'd rather fight and die as a woman than betray my core identity and live. I'm stupid like that :)

If this morning is anything to go by, it wouldn't matter which side I fought on, I'd end up killing men.

Wipe out the women, no babies.
