This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

1)Gender roles are present in our genetic cousins, the apes.
>Therefore fender role predate human society

2)Gender roles have always been restablished reinvigorated by societal* collapses.
>Therefore denial of gender roles is a societal construct

3)All** civilizations known to man have independently established similar gender roles.
>Therefore human nature is gendered

Conclusion gender isn't a social construct

>Here we present genome-wide shotgun and capture data from the Chapelfield human remains. All individuals analysed show greatest affinities with modern Ashkenazi Jewish and Southern European populations. Chronological modelling of radiocarbon dates using Bayesian inferences produce a range centred on 1190 AD, the date of a historical massacre of Jews in Norwich. We infer that the individuals recovered from the Chapelfield site do indeed represent victims of a documented anti-Semitic pogrom.

Malcolm X basically wanted the blacks to set up their own country and be self-sufficient, which they pretty much had in an archipelago in the South before desegregation. but King won the societal debate and now black Americans have a shit-tier society. they've gone backwards, not forwards. so I'm going to go with Malcolm X.

I don't think posting an ubsourced graph then defending it religiously when people point out the fact he forced other parties to resign is talking "objectively". I also don't think calling someone an nigger, brainlet, and moron is very open discussion friendly. And when i said "exploiting democracy" i meant forcing parties to resign or be forced to get arrested and "accidentally shot" when resisting arrest. But yea i guess he played by the book because "forcibly dismantling other political parties and executing those that oppose you" wasn't technically written as a no no.

What do trannies et al mean by gender?

When trannies say "I don't identify as the gender assigned to me", what thing in the world do they refer to with "gender"? Whenever I ask that question nobody really answers and only goes on self-reflective things like "a person's gender is the gender they identify as" which obviously does not answer the question.

But in trannyism "gender" can't be physical dimorphism (or else trannyism itself collapses because it says gender/sex are different) and can't be just gender roles (or else a transwoman is the same as an effeminate man). So what is "gender" for these people? Is it some kind of degenerate gnosis?
>>
>>5361451
A gender is an idea of what someone of a certain biological sex should behave like.
>>
>>5361490

And trannies behave and dress like women because they say they’re women.

>>5361451
Gender isn't the same as biological sex. Gender is what >>5361490 is saying. It's the behavior you display. If I asked to guess who was behind a curtain, and gave you the clue that "they like pink" you'd assume it's a girl because girls like pink. But girls liking pink isn't a natural thing, it's a social construct.

Men and women are exactly the same and equal barring these social constructs, artificial divisions created by people, like girls wear dresses and boys like blue. Thus it is not the biology that makes the female or the male, it is the behavior. If we take it as a maxim that men and women are equal, then social constructs are the only differences between us, then it is not the vagina that makes the female, but the fact that they like pink and wear dresses. That's what a woman is, and they would like to be treated as such.

This is why people that don't neatly fall into one of these categories of clearly boy or girl, like goths and other attention whores, where before they would be nothing but an attention whore, they are nowadays "genderless" or some other bullshit.

It was so dang /comfy/ that GK Chesterton came up with Distributism in an effort to recreate the niceties of those times in the modern era.

Why are christers not in favor of forming societies around the OT law?
Now I get that J scrapped the record and that you don't need the law to get justified so personal... life direction should be based on the double commandment of love
but what about the parts of the OT that describe how society should be modelled? I.e. how to treat rape or foreigners or ffs other religions? Jesus said no iota of the law shall be scrapped.
I believe it's a remnescent of early christers trying to appease the roman authorities and later getting coopted by them. By the time of the reformation this "European law under christian church" was so ingrained into the religion that noone questioned it. Thoughts on that theory?

Also were there ever radical reformers that went christian sharia?
