I reckon Mr Lemoine needs to get laid.

Sentient being. Sheesh...
Agreed. It does make you wonder just how many chat bots are out there though.
Here is another link or two to the story but doesn't have a pay wall.

Jesus could have been transgender, according to a University of Cambridge dean.

"Dr Michael Banner, the dean of Trinity College, said such a view was “legitimate” after a row over a sermon by a Cambridge research student that claimed Christ had a “trans body”, The Telegraph can disclose.

The “truly shocking” address at last Sunday’s evensong at Trinity College chapel, saw Joshua Heath, a junior research fellow, display Renaissance and Medieval paintings of the crucifixion that depicted a side wound that the guest preacher likened to a vagina. ..."

Now I've wiped my cornflakes off the keyboard, all I can say is you wouldn't have this sort of nonsense being spouted about the Prophet in a nice, sensible mosque would you?

Seems to be the only "vagina" in this story is the junior research fellow.

Based on paintings made more than a millennium after his death? Perhaps based on some very old photographs, to silly for words

Obviously this particular student needs glasses , however it has been suggested while looking carefully at the Last Supper that Mary was amongst the Disciples and in a different Faith , that Buddha was a female .
All these strange and often contrary views have been espoused over the last couple of centuries . What amazes me is the amount of criticism that is occurring .
It is down I am sure to those that cannot deal with a contrary viewpoint and discuss it rationally . Sad world we now live in, where you should think about others viewpoint before writing anything.
Sorry I will not , you do not like what I write, you have options
1 Not read it
2 read but disagree and offer a different viewpoint
3 Be outraged and show yourself to be an idiot, in what you write and say unable to hold a genuine discussion . .
Your choice in my book

Emma Raducanu has received an MBE at the tender age of 20 for "services to tennis. In reality, it's for being nothing more than being "the darling of British tennis" with a single one hit wonder Grand Slam win.

Sir Andy Murray who won three Grand Slam events including two Wimbledon's plus back-to-back Olympic gold medals waited two more years to get his gong that was awarded in 2016 "for services to tennis and charity."

Meanwhile, 7-times world F1 Champion Lewis Hamilton only got his gong 11 months ago.

Load of woke rubbish these days.

My point is that "darling" Emma has done naff all to deserve a gong. She has contributed 3/8 of bugger all to tennis.
