    I agree that there should be some criteria that accounts for age prior to progressing with treatment, especially the more permanent transition procedures.

    pronouns

    Hell no, you cant and shouldn't criminalise disrespect. Unfortunately there will always be people who don't respect your lifestyle/beliefs etc you just have to live with it - that's part of living in a free society.

    pronouns

    I don't have an issue with referring to people by their preferred pronoun (she/he/they etc) - it's basic respect. It's like if someone's name is Matthew and they preferred to be called Matthew, you wouldn't refer to them as Matt would you? Where it has gone to far I think is removing gendered...

    Do employers care about anything in your school record other than academics?

    Even that is a stretch, if we are talking about grad roles, only a minority will request your ATAR and even then, it will hardly be a decisive part of your application (uni marks count for more). Beyond grad roles your high school record is irrelevant. In the 8 years Ive been working in HR...

    Year 9 Science research project

    Wish I could but I did that assignment over 13 years ago so I wouldn't be much help.

    Selective school kids- would you have got a lower ATAR at a non-selective school?

    What's in bold is the most important thing and is far more valuable than a high ATAR. The debate around whether going to a selective schools leads to a higher ATAR has been around for years. If you look at the logic, I dont think there is much of a direct advantage in terms of scaling and...

    BOSers hobbies Q&A

    Try your hand at fishkeeping. It's pretty scalable in terms of monetary/time commitment. Usually the startup cost is where most of the money is spent, upkeep is fairly cheap.

    Another islamic terrorist attack in France

    It's a black and white issue to me, they are cartoons, if you are offended dont look. If you dont like a country that promotes stuff you dont agree with, dont go there or just leave. Im usually quite a tolerant person being from an immigrant family, but this really is pushing it. When you go...

    It's good and bad in a way. The government seems to now be swinging back to its usual deficit hawking which is not going to help with this situation. Id rate myself as being fairly economically conservative, but I think this cult of surplus at all costs isn't helpful and is kind of ridiculous...

    Coronavirus/Covid-19 Discussion Thread

    Expanding on this, a lot of people who scream for lockdowns and "putting lives ahead of the economy" dont fully understand the ramifications of the lockdown. First of all, public health and economic health go hand in hand. Hospitals are a major cost to any society and at the moment, the...

    Coronavirus/Covid-19 Discussion Thread

    The government really needs to be transparent on the next steps, because "flattening the curve" isnt a solution. Also keeping this status quo until a vaccine is found (or should I say if it is found) is pretty ridiculous.

    As harsh as it sounds, I kind of agree. Like, I'm reading so many hard luck stories online and some of them just irk me. One lady was having a complain because her husband lost his job as a part time chef and they now have no income to support their three children (two of whom are disabled) or...

    Life as a Civil Engineer Project Manager

    Being a Project Engineer is a good starting point for being a PM. I remember the PEs got some really good exposure to the different areas, they would talk to landowners and the community about their concerns, review tenders, go over budgets etc which is all stuff you need to get used to in...

    Life as a Civil Engineer Project Manager

    Just to clarify, the vast majority of PMs on major projects are Civil Engineers. The rest are either from another engineering discipline and rarely from other areas (Quantity Surveyors, Finance etc). Civil Engineers who are very technically focused tend to struggle, because being a PM is about...

    Life as a Civil Engineer Project Manager

    Im not an Engineer myself, but I have worked in HR on a multi billion dollar infrastructure project so I do know roughly what they do. If you work as a PM either directly for the client (e.g. NSW Government) or a tier one contractor (e.g. John Holland) you will most likely be working under a...

    Thoughts on Project Management combined with Civil Engineering?

    Couldnt agree more with this post. Id stick with just engineering, enter the workforce then consider further training down the track. There are a multitude of different roles within civil engineering and projects. You don't want to pigeon hole yourself before you've had a chance to try...

    Don't really like my degree and unsure of what to do now.

    I think one of the biggest mistakes when people choose degrees/careers is they base it off their interests in high school subjects or topics of interest (i.e. Im good at maths, so Ill do engineering). The link between the two is tenuous at best and has little to do with the profession itself...

    Obviously the statistics are the best we have, but they are so unreliable (for a multitude of reasons) it's hard for anyone to draw real conclusions from them. Unfortunately, most people in society dont have a basic understanding of statistics which is why they seem to be so prominent.
