Every word associated with trans people, dumb people, or black people eventually becomes a pejorative and then the group decides its offensive to use that term anymore. Just wait a few years and they'll change it anyway and call you a fascist for using the previous term they chose.

I can't wait until they "reclaim" the names that are currently banned in this sub lol.

It's not only that, but the offended decide what the meaning is behind the words you use.

I was literally just about to write a trolling post on a trans sub about how "enby" is offensive. I think I'll sit back and see if it happens on it's own.

We should go back to calling them 'trannies'

We should go back to calling them Dave.

Robin, Erin, Dannie, Sam...

My weed dealer in Mexico was a British male named Robin and my best friend's wife is a Robin also. I picked him out immediately when I saw him taking a snooze, face down on a restaurant table but that's not too unusual in Mexico.

whats wrong with tranny?

[–]grixit 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I never stopped saying transexual.

[–]AcceleratedWallops 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (28 children)

Y'all spend way too much time thinking about what's in other people's pants.

[–]EvilNick 8 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 2 fun -  (26 children)

when youre trying to tell/force someone how to refer to others (or your self) when you obviously dont meet the criteria youre kind of forcing people to think about it.

[–]AcceleratedWallops 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (25 children)

If you say "Hello Nicholas" and he replies, "Please call me Nick", you gonna call him Nick like he asked or keep saying "Nicholas" just to spite him?

It's the same thing if someone says "please refer to me as they". Just don't be fucking rude, it's pretty goddamn easy.

[–]jet199 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (4 children)

If you say "Hello Nicholas" and he replies, "Please call me Nick", you gonna call him Nick like he asked or keep saying "Nicholas" just to spite him?

That's literally the kind of shit people do all the time.

Have you ever worked in a place where everyone didn't have a hair up their arse?

[–]EvilNick 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Then don't expect everyone to bend to your diluted fantasy. Either get over some people don't feel comfortable or put the extra work in to look really convincing.

[–]AcceleratedWallops 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

Yeah, they do that shit, and it's fucking rude.

[–]jet199 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

No, it's funny.

You just need to get over yourself.

You never know, you might have a good time.

[–]AcceleratedWallops 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

If you're friends, sure, they might find it funny, I guess. Otherwise they'll probably find it disrespectful.

How is this hard.

[–]EvilNick 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (17 children)

I'll say call me what you want or just not talk to that person. Id call him Nick cause it's easier. Get a better example. Its also rude to try and force me to call some fugly dude a girl because he puts a flower in his hair.

[–]AcceleratedWallops 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (16 children)

Wow? How is it rude? Just call people what they want to be called, it's not hard.

[–]EvilNick 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (15 children)

Don't force others out of their comfort zone, it's not that hard.

[–]AcceleratedWallops 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (14 children)

Yeah, exactly. This person feels more comfortable if you call him "Nick", this person feels more comfortable if you call them "they."

See? Easy. Nothing to get your panties twisted about.

[–]EvilNick 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (13 children)

Exactly stop getting your panties in a bunch. I would call him Nick because it's easier. If he wanted me to only use Nicholas my friends and I would laugh at him and leave

[–]AcceleratedWallops 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (12 children)

Well I doubt Nicholas would be missing much.

[–]SnowAssMan[S] 8 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 2 fun -  (4 children)

I'm not a catholic, so I don't call a priest 'father'. I don't believe in gender spirits trapped in the wrong body, so I'm not going to call a man a woman. Simple. What you're looking for is a theocracy.

[–]EvilNick 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (6 children)

Me either, point?

[–]Airbus320 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

No

[–]AcceleratedWallops 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Like a kid throwing a tantrum.

[–]hennaojichan 2 insightful - 4 fun2 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Or what's not in their pants.

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

I never remember if a trans-woman was a man or woman originally. So, how about "now-man" and "now-woman"? Regardless if they've transitioned once or flipflopped or whatever, they are identified how they want now, also indicating that they weren't before.

Regardless if they are now fixed and sane as most, or if they're as confused as ever, the chance that they may appear different or confusing is not small. Having these clear unique labels for them can help the majority of the population in this. If some people are mean and abuse the labels, that's on them. Most people simply won't give a shit. And of course there's currently no shortage of support for these different folks, with and/or without issues.

[–]Node 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

How about "fake-man" and "fake-woman"? Far more accurate, albeit not really offensive enough.

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

It would be so offensive they would never go for it. So it's just another pejorative.

[–]bobbobbybob 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

transsexuals get their bits cut off /rearranged, and are as hated by the transgender girl-dick brigade as any other TERF. they call them 'truscum'

[–]SnowAssMan[S] 8 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

not according to the dictionary definition of 'transexual'.

[–]hennaojichan 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Trans-woperson?

[–]Oof_Too_Humid 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Most of the men who call themselves "transgender" are transvestites. 85 to 90 % of them never get bottom surgery. So call them transvestites. Or even more simply, just call them men.

[–]Alan_Crowe 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

We should uphold the gender binary and talk of "men with gender dysphoria" or "women with gender dysphoria".

Some-times we want to talk about both. But the era of chopping down trees to make paper is long past. We can just write "men with gender dysphoria and women with gender dysphoria" and just shrug off the waste of IP packets.

[–]SnowAssMan[S] 9 insightful - 2 fun9 insightful - 1 fun10 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Transexuals in cultures outside the West (like Samoa) don't have "gender dysphoria". That term will soon be discontinued & replaced with a different term with a different definition in 2022 (gender incongruence, marked by a strong desire to be the opposite sex &/or a dislike of one's sex).

I don't think pathologising it is going in the right direction. I think history has shown us that that's the wrong path to go down. Gender clinics are increasing, however there have been some moves to de-pathologising it.
