I went to the fridge one morning to get milk for my coffee but there was no milk as I had forgotten I needed to buy some. I actually collapsed in my kitchen and fell to the tile floor in a heap. I felt lifeless. I couldn't move. I called my local Tesco manager and he actually talked to me enough that I regained function of my body. You are safe he said. Get off your floor and come buy new milk. Sobbing, it took my 40 minutes to walk the three minutes to my local Tesco. I bought the milk but cried so hard throughout the ordeal that even after drinking my milky coffee I was still dehydrated. I have no more energy left to make more coffee or even tea.
Tomorrow I will call the police and have them execute all the cows.

That's beyond ignorant. It's an artistic sport. But it's a sport. It takes extreme athleticism to be able to carry out most of the required elements. Look how proud of themselves people who manage to do a fucking pistol squat are? Because pistol squats are hard. But a basic sit spin, is a pistol squat entered and held while creating and controlling rotational force that is increasing your weight. Then raised out of in a way that vastly increases the rotational force and will throw you off your axis if every muscle in your body isn't actively working. I was able to be able to do weighted pistol squats, Nordics, reverse Nordics, Bulgarian, ATG spilt squat and deadlift 125% of my bw before I could hold form on a sit spin.
And that's just the spins. Spins are used as training for jumps from single axel up. Getting the height, rotational force, control of the rotation, to make multiple rotations in the air and land on one leg, on a blade travelling backwards at speed on ice, at multiples of your body weight is an athlethic feat most people can't even begin to get close to. And pairs skating requires throws and throw assisted jumps and catches. Meaning the male skater has to skate and catch his partner at multiple times her body weight when she has rotated in the air.
The fact that the skaters are also judged on artistry makes it harder because they don't just have to complete often dangerous elements. They have to do it while looking great. You'd honestly have to be immensely stupid to think that just because skaters train to make what the do look easy, that it actually is.

There is nothing stopping skaters from developing male-male pairs and/or female-female pairs competition leagues if the interest is there. But they and male-female pairs would be three different sports. And male-female is just likely to always be more popular as part of the point of the sport is for male and female athlethic attributes to come together and compliment each other.

There have been a number of studies done into how violent criminals choose their victims and it almost always has to do with how easy to attack the victim appears to be. (In random street attacks, rather than cases where attacker and victim know each other.) People who seem harder to attack tend to be left alone. Walking straight and tall, even if you are small, with a confident stride and looking around you in an assured manner, reduce your odds of being attacked. As does walking with a potential weapon that you look like you might use. But you need to look like you would be willing to use it. Walking with a potential weapon but appearing anxious, means it's more likely to be used on you.
But the one main thing I've taken from self defence and hand to hand combat classes, is to never, ever, ever go to a secondary location with an attacker. Let them kill you where you stand rather than take you somewhere else.

The thing with asexual, is that lack of sex drive is quite often a symptom of a medical issue. Instead of going to their doctor, getting tested and appropriately treated where necessary, they are waving a silly flag instead. And it's not as if it's just sex, if something is physically wrong it will be causing other issues. Low testosterone, which is a reason for lack of sex drive in men and women, also causes sarcopenia, bone density loss and excess fat gain. Lots of people are letting their bodies deteriorate needlessly rather than accept they have a medical issue, as opposed to a special identity.

The women victims in those cases were quite low iq (in the factual sense) though weren't they? At least in one of those cases. And the penetration happened with a dildo not a neo-penis.
As for having sex with a neo-penis, it's a roll of skin from the thigh or forearm. Mostly that's all they are, so you can't have sex with a roll of flacid skin. Occasionally they have a tube put into them that can be inflated with air from an attached pump, which will sometimes be in a fake testicle. That will make it less flacid but it's still a roll of skin around a tube of air. That's the absolute best, most expensive and rare type of neo-penis. It's not going to work like a penis. It won't look like a penis, feel like a penis, move like a penis. If penetration is even possible with an inflated skin tube, which I'm genuinely unconvinced it would be. As it's usually positioned above the pelvic area that any sort of controlled thrust is possible from. With a real penis, that's only semi-erect, penetration is very difficult as the vaginal muscles tend to push the flacidity away. And that's with a real penis, that is coming from the right region of the male body that humans evolved to make copulation possible. And quite honestly, considering that it's a roll of skin wrapped around an inflatable tube, stitched on top of a human pelvis. It's really, really, really high risk of constant infection. There is a reason that the posters on KiwiFarms call them rot-dogs. The underside of the neo-penis is often covered in infected sores.

Is it all made up? Or was the girlfriend an extremely neuro-divergent virgin? Because she was supposedly in a relationship for 18 months with a trans man and didn't know. You can't have sex with a neo penis. Even if she somehow couldn't work out that her 'boyfriend' was a woman from talking and interacting with someone with a woman's frame and way of moving. The neo penis is going to be a dead giveaway because it's a dead roll of skin and nothing remotely like a penis.
To top it off, these two actually grew up together as teenagers and at no point does the girlfriend recognise her as the same person. Nor does the OP slip up and mention a shared experience they had as girls. It's all a complete fantasy.

I have to admit I've read a few "psychological thriller" books written by authors with an 'A B Surname' type pen name and they were truly awful. I don't know why that has been the case as when I looked into it, some were written by men and some by (actual) women but they all shared weirdly unbelievable characterisation and a feeling that the author may have been taking some pleasure in the descriptions of abuse.
My only guess is that they are trying to ape after crime writers like PD James but with pen names instead of talent.
Gay rights activists just wanted equal treatment... by chris3991m in TumblrInAction
Ah no, that's the clear horse shit. Many feminists wanted to work and have jobs. That was the biggest part of second wave feminism. Which wasn't a bad idea in and of itself but it was massively short sighted and showed no thought had been given to the most obvious economic outcomes. Which has resulted in most families needing to do at least double the amount of work outside the home for a lower standard of living.

Ok so here is my take on what is possibly at the root of her tantrum. I think most people are familiar with the idea that someone could be going through a very rough time, bereavement, job loss, discovering their partner is having an affair, infertility, etc. They keep on getting on with life with a degree of stoicism and then one day they come home realise realise the guy at the takeaway forgot to put their chips in their bag of food and they just bursting into tears. It's not the chips, it's the other shit and the chips are just the last straw.
So I'm looking at this woman's wife. She's a they/them with a face shape and voice that suggests she's taking testosterone and her shirt open to display her mastectomy. It's possible that this fairly young looking woman married a woman she loved and not too long after Azul started to troon out. The sane reaction is to get a divorce or annulment if possible. But people often stay in relationships long after a communists parade of red flags has marched through it. Especially after marriage. I think this woman could be being emotionally abused by her transthey wife and dragged into identifying herself in the same way. She's been sad and scared for quite a while and the absolute rejection of the cult she's found herself trapped in by normal members of the community she thinks is meant to be all in with, has broken her.
I could be way off base but I genuinely get a manipulative vibe from the wife. The way she strokes her "comfortingly" while continuing to rile her up with her words. All while making sure her own chest gets in the video seems like she's pulling the strings of the crying woman.

Yeah, I know a lot of women in their 30s and 40s who are aggressively pro-trans. The impression I get from them is that it's a type of mid-life crisis/desperate attempt to be "down with the kids" as opposed to old. Their heads are going to explode when/if the younger generations start to reject this shit en masse.

I understand people not knowing about this issue. I understand people knowing but not wanting to make their opinion known. But I don't understand people making a comment then apologising and trying to backtrack. Even when they know they said nothing wrong and they know that they will be forever tainted in the eyes of the woke anyway. I really don't understand knowing enough to speak out but not knowing what that will entail.
Either keep quiet about what you think or prepare yourself for the backlash before you speak out. Talk to your family, make sure they know what's coming. If you are someone somewhat famous, that means telling your agent/manager/publicist in advance so they don't pressure you to apologise afterwards. It's what I suspect someone like Dave Chappelle did ahead of his Netflix special.

Hang in there kid, transitioning will make all your dreams come true by xoenix in TumblrInAction
It's easier to add to a smaller thing to make it look bigger than to make a bigger thing look smaller. A man's skeletal proportions are bigger than a woman's. Even an individual woman who is bigger than an individual man will have smaller proportions. So a woman can take testosterone, lift a lot of heavy weights to bulk up her shoulders and grow a beard to hide her female jaw. Which will go some way to disguising the womanliness underneath. But a man can't disguise male shoulders and male jawline as they are bigger than a woman's. The best option transwomen have to pass is to be morbidly obese. 200-300lbs of excess fat will hide a lot.

That's not real life though. Even with the very tight aspect ratio she looks like she has tiny shoulders that don't go with her head. She will have a woman's gait. People have been shown to be able to identify men and women based on their gait alone. Meeting a person with a man's head on an odd body that it doesn't match, with a woman's gait will make people react unnaturally because even if they can't tell exactly why this person makes them feel uneasy, they will still feel uneasy. Even people with the best of the 'be kind' intentions will react in a closed off manner to someone that they read as being wrong. It's a normal human reaction to oddity. This woman has no idea whatsoever how people react to men. She only knows how they react to women compared to how they react to uncanny valley people.
I don't believe stories like that because she wouldn't have been treated as a man because nobody passes in real life. Some ftms pass in photos but not once you see them moving, talking or around other people where their odd proportions are obvious compared to everyone around them. So she wouldn't have been treated like a man but like someone that was setting off warning bells in the brains of everyone around her. Saying she didn't like being treated like a man was just a delusional coping method.

I've seen a few young transmen who start to go quite bald after a few years. I suspect that is a panic inducing development for an awful lot of them. I know that most men don't love it if they go bald but it's something that they have a degree of preparation for through their lives, especially if their older male relatives are bald. But hair is such a massive big deal for girls and women in a way I don't think it is for boys/men. I suspect that even if a kid thinks she wants to be a man and cuts it really short, seeing her hairline recede causes feelings she wasn't remotely prepared for.

There's possibly a slight difference but apart from the fact that we apparently swear a bit more, and have a few uniquely Irish phrases, our use of British swear words will be pretty similar. Maybe it's a case that men only use wanker for other men but women use it for both? There is a thread on this case on mumsnet and pretty much all the posters are saying they use wanker for men and women.

Vegetarian diets aren't free of animal death though. Mono cropping not only requires MASSIVE amounts of insect and invertebrate death but large amounts of birds, rodents and small mammals like rabbits, pika, hates, etc are killed, especially during harvesting. A strict carnivore diet where the meat eaten is mainly from all parts of a cow, is likely to be the diet least responsible for animal death as so much nutrition comes from a single animal. (Not that I'm recommending that diet though, it honestly sounds grim.) But the reality is that human farming requires a lot of creatures to die. I understand people feeling guilty about eating animal flesh but the fact is they are fooling themselves about animals not dying for their diet.

I noted that this woman, who is a terrible, terrible writer, is doing an MFA in writing. At first I thought, what a stupid waste of her money and a horrible example of the value of an MFA from Syracuse University. Then I saw it's a fully funded program. So she's not wasting her money, instead she's probably teaching undergraduates. Just imagine that! Paying a fortune to attend or send your kid to get a degree and having this crazy woman who writes porn about her testosterone atrophied cunt being a teacher. And you know she won't stick to just passing on her awful writing tips. But she'll be enthusiastically insisting everything is queered up!

Long Covid more likely among trans/non-binary and people with mental health issues by xoenix in TumblrInAction
Covid has quite a high rate of post-viral inflammatory illness. After my first infection, which had been very mild, I had mild pleurisy in one lung, oesophagitis, costochondritis and thyroiditis. Which were triggered when I went back to exercise too soon after I felt better. It was pretty early on, just as people were starting to talk about 'long covid' but it was after it was known that covid doesn't penetrate the host nucleus to multiply, which means it's not a chronic illness. So it's been pretty obvious from mid 2020, that 'long covid' is a collection of normal post viral illnesses that regularly happen with novel viruses or other more virulent ones like Epstein Barr.

Anthony from LTT (Linus Tech Tips) is now Emily..... bloody hell by Gravi in TumblrInAction
That's how I feel about transmen. At least get jacked before declaring yourself a man. I'm a fairly muscular woman and, realistically, it is a look more associated with men. I don't feel manly but I do feel more manly than any transman I've ever met irl who are all either morbidly obese or eating disorder skinny. If you are going to pretend to be a man, at least do the bare fucking minimum to look and feel more manly.
Though if they did, they might actually start to feel better from the exercise and stop being addicted to the idea of needing a pastel flag to feel special.

This generation's mod/rocker/goth/emo. We just live in a time where most clothing styles are pretty much normal, so people who want to stand out as different, need to go beyond a style of dress.

I know-ish a woman like this. Baby was only 7 moths old when she realised she was really a man. Told a large online group of friends of friends about it before anyone in real life. Clearly chose this group because it's full of TRA allies, FTMs, Afab NBs and munchie moms, so she got nobody to respond to tell her to cop the fuck on. They all basically coached her on how to be a man and what to do before she told her husband. Made sure she knew the "best" doctors and counsellors to go to. It's a fucking cult. I have lots of friends in the group, nice people, some are very intelligent about other topics. But they are full on cult members.
Parents' concerns over trans pool official repeatedly walking through women's changing room as young girls change into swimsuits- Totally not a nonce! by ClassroomPast6178 in TumblrInAction
This does also show how vulnerable little boys are if they are alone in changing rooms. As this man stood out more in a woman costume in the girls' changing room. Before he trooned how noticeable would he have been trooping through the boys.' Bearing in mind that children are more likely to be at activities like swim training with their mother. That means that once little boys are too old to be with their mothers in women's changing rooms, they are getting changed alone, from around age 8 or 9, and this kind of man, without the giant red flag of a lady identity can potentially be around them.
Andrew (Lilly) Wachowski explains how the fearless performers he saw in trans porn unlocked something in his brain by xoenix in TumblrInAction
That's really interesting, I really never picked up on that. I watched Sense8 due to Straczynski's involvement as I loved Babylon 5 in the 90s and at the time I watched the first series I was still blissfully unaware of the reality of transactivism and AGP. I was very confused by the 'mean lesbians' in pretty much the opening scenes as that was very odd from my 'normy' perspective. Nomi's family were so cartoonishly evil that they made no sense and it was kind of disturbing that was partially explained by Michael having been born by c-section. I also thought the Dani character, who's main personality trait was constantly getting herself off while watching her fake boyfriend and his real boyfriend have sex, was weird, sad and gross. But overall, I was interested in the cluster story and the way they could share each other's strengths when necessary.
By the time the finale movie was released I had begun to realise what was happening with the trans stuff and was starting to learn about AGP, so had realised while watching that there was a real agenda to a lot of the stuff that felt weird. The stuff that felt gross, was gross and the whole thing was about pushing fetishes, polyamory and the valid sexy beauty of transwomen lesbians. I mean the very last scene was a fucking rainbow dildo strap on the Freema Ageyman character had just used to have wonderful, super sex with Nomi's neo-vagina. It actually made me feel grubby.
It's also really put me off Starczynski as why would anyone without a creep agenda be involved in writing this? It puts the whole thing of Delenn in his original vision of Babylon 5, being a more masculine character who becomes female when she takes on human characteristics into a more disturbing light. Delenn was meant to be a trans-allegory and it's honestly a pretty odd thing for a writer to have fixated on back in the early 90s.

Some aspects of Sense8 had real potential to be an interesting story. But it leaned so hard into making Jamie Clayton's transbian the best, most interesting, most long suffering but loving and smart and sexy and desirable character to ever exist. It was co-written Joe Straczynski who has a pretty solid sci-fi writing history, so I suspect the best aspects of Sense8 came from him.

I don't know why but for some reason I find it almost worse when a relatively attractive man like this one transes himself. I can kind of get it from the usual ugly troglodyte types. They are miserable, feel hopeless, have no life off the internet and manage to go down a crazy online rabbit hole where they manage to convince themselves and each other that they have a chance of happiness if they trans. Especially as it's something they will be celebrated for online. In reality, they go from one kind of freak to another but at least to themselves, it's no loss.
But this guy was baseline normal to attractive to begin with. Then he worked out enough to make himself more attractive, while also benefitting from the endorphins and healthy dopamine from working out. And yet, he did this to himself. He went from a guy who would have no trouble attracting either men or women, whichever he preferred. And he turned himself from attractive to freak. How the actual fuck does that happen?
And I'm extra creeped out by his "women with abs" praise of himself comment, that I don't think he meant to make under his own log in. It's much much easier for men to have visible abs due to naturally higher levels of muscle, lower levels of body fat, completely different pelvic shape and presence of a uterus. Women with abs work a hell of a lot harder for them and are more likely to only have visible upper abs if they aren't juicing and/or at unsustainably low levels of body fat. His abs look fucking nothing like a woman's. They are another thing that scream that he is a man and he's obviously jacking off to himself about them.

Thanks for posting this. I'm stuck at home sick and miserable today so when I learned that fictosexual is a thing I had to learn more. Not only do the fictosexuals have their own flag. But there is a variation of the flag to differentiate them from the fictoromantics. Which is a good thing really as we wouldn't want their fictitious love interests to get the wrong imaginary idea and think imaginary sex is on the table when they are only wanted for imaginary dates and chaste cuddles. I literally laughed so much at this stupidity that I cried. I feel very cheered up right now. I might feel like shit but at least I'm not calling up my mum to whine about how my imaginary husband never does the dishes or mows the lawn.
Straight to the homophobia every single time by jet199 in TumblrInAction
I know she's still clearly a woman but I imagine the combination of male pattern baldness and beard would be off putting to straight men. She wouldn't attract gay men or straight women, due to obviously being a woman. But while you can't identify your way into a dating pool, you can absolutely identify your way out. And she has surely made herself unattractive to straight men.
To be entirely fair, the man in that relationship wouldn't really be straight would he? What straight man would be attracted to a bald woman with a beard? He'd have to be bisexual. An unusual bisexual, but still bisexual.
Public RETALIATE Against Just Stop Oil Protesters by hfxB0oyA in TumblrInAction
These 'public fight back' videos are becoming more common in the last few weeks. And I suspect that the more common they become, the more they will embolden others to do the same. However having seen a video yesterday where a man knocked one of the protesters over, then kicked him in the head, I suspect that the fight back could start to become more violent than it needs to be. And I wonder what effect that will have. Will the jso people fade away under the threat of real violence or escalate themselves.

Great herself doesn't annoy me. I see her as a disabled child being abused. First by her parents who allowed her to be consumed by environmental doomsday theories for their own hunger for fame and notoriety. And then by corporations and politicians who wheel her out when it suits them. It's utterly disgusting and even though she doesn't understand it, she's a victim in this bullshit, with her life and peace of mind being ruined for others to profit.
As a parent I've gone through a type of terror at the environmental damage that my child might face when he's older. But the more I've looked into the doomsday predictions we're currently bombarded with, the less they stand up to scrutiny. Humans are obviously doing shitty things to the planet and there is a lot we need to work towards improving. But it's not as dire as we're being told and many of the supposed solutions are complete bullshit. (Actually bullshit is good fertiliser and veganism won't help the planet as cow burps really aren't going to end the world.) I make sure that my kid isn't growing up terrified about the world ending in his lifetime. And I help him to work out, as well as anyone can, what is a real threat and what is overblown nonsense. And I feel sick for kids like Greta who's parents fail them so fucking miserably.

They aren't as good as real life play fighting/sports but the group strategising and team work aspects are still there in a lot of games and they are an important part of male adolescence.

It is rape by deception. Assuming he was genuinely deceived. Trans people never pass in real life and it isn't unheard of for gay/bisexual men in denial to have sex with hst/transwomen. And attack them afterwards, pretending they only just realised that they've had sex with a man.

There are no outliers. The idea of people being intersex (or hermaphrodite which was the more commonly used term in the past) predates chromosomal testing. Now that we can check chromosomes we know that the people who previously appeared intersex are still either male or female. Someone like Caster Semenye, for example, has a disorder called 46xy which makes him male. People are either male or female, even if something has gone wrong with their chromosomes.

Just on the ADD. Is that even real? And even if it really is a particular type of personality type does that really make it a disease? I'd have zero problem getting an ADHD diagnosis for my incredibly active, daydreamer son if I wanted. If I did, I could get a range of financial benefits and he would get special dispensations at school that would lead to him eventually getting easier university admission. He could get extra financial benefits through his adulthood.
I don't do it because there is nothing wrong with him and I've seen too many people let their diagnosis ruin their lives. It becomes an excuse for not doing basic shit or trying hard things. I suspect that the Amish probably have a similar attitude toward calling personality types illnesses.

If you watch the video very carefully you can see that they switch from chanting "coming for your children" to "not going shopping." The woman with her breasts out is one of the last to switch and when she does she makes eye contact with the person next to her and grins like they are sharing a joke. The last person to visibly keep chanting about children is the woman with the grey pouffy hair. She switches her chant after another woman comes up on her left and takes her hand.
It seems to me like they had preplanned to switch chants under certain circumstances. Possibly due to noticing that they were being filmed or maybe they were approaching an area where they were less confident about chanting about children.

And I was really excited the day I read Channel 4's confirmed air date for season 4 of Babylon 5 in SFX magazine.
But no one ever happy danced about getting clothes. I don't think that's normal for a teenager. It suggests to me that this woman's daughter is mentally very young. With maybe some arrested development rather than normal social behaviours for her age.

My son will be in secondary in a couple of years and the thought of this shit stresses me out a lot. His primary is absolutely fine, run by a very sensible woman and I'm generally confident that he won't be exposed to gender bullshit there. But it will almost certainly be an issue in secondary because there is a new national curriculum of gender borg nonsense being introduced. So it doesn't even matter what school I send him to, he will be exposed to this shit. He's already a full on 'terf' in that he understands very basic biology and is baffled as to why this stupidity is happening.
After watching this video I definitely feel a bit better. Both in that the girls were confident enough to state that they know most of their classmates feel the same but are scared of the teacher. And in that I've decided that if he has trouble in school when he's older, that I'll suggest he records what happens. We have one-party recording laws and I have constitutional rights as his recognised main educator, so we'll be legally on firm ground. I wouldn't be rushing any recordings up to social media like the girls and their mothers have done here but I would 100% use it to talk to the school and threaten legal action if necessary.
The ACLU gets community noted by xoenix in TumblrInAction
Eleanor Holmes Norton, the ACLU lawyer who fought and won the first amendment case in question on behalf of the Nationalist States White Freedom Party, is still alive aged 86. I wonder what she thinks of what's going on now. After she won stated that, " "I defended the First Amendment, and you seldom get to defend the First Amendment by defending people you like ... You don't know whether the First Amendment is alive and well until it is tested by people with despicable ideas." She was a black woman, defending the rights of people to say things that denigrated her but she did it because she believed in people's rights over her feelings. Because she understood that if you take away people's rights to say things because you don't like them, you have also taken away your own right to free speech because free speech is gone.
But I wouldn't be remotely surprised if she just goes along with the mob now.

Kids who grow up with morbidly obese parents usually end up morbidly obese themselves even if they manage to get through childhood at a healthy weight due to their youthful metabolism.

That article describes the scheduled surgery as removing his male genitalia and creating female parts. Wording like this is completely and utterly misleading. No female parts are created. Male genitalia are removed and an open wound, often lined with part of the colon, in need of permanently ongoing, very painful, dilation is left in its place. The wound is in constant high risk of infection and necrosis. Though this is often unrecognised in the early stages because pain and unpleasant odour are the norm for "neo-vaginas' so the infection is often at a more dangerous stage before it's diagnosed.
Obviously, most of us here know that. But the general public has no idea. Most people know a real vagina isn't created but they have no idea whatsoever that these surgeries are essentially something from a gross out horror film. When journalists use this neat marketing language to describe the surgeries they are complicit in hiding reality and legitimising experimental body modifications so horrific they should be categorised as the worst kind of grievous bodily harm.

From what I experience personally in real life and online spaces, I would say that the majority of TRAs are women and the majority of people fighting against trans ideology are women. Bearing in mind that I'm a Mumsnet user in Ireland. Of the TRAs that I know personally they are more likely to be young Gen X men and Millenial women. Older Gen X men and pretty much all Gen X women that I know are either Terfy or don't really care but still terfy if pushed on issues like sports, prisons and puberty blockers. Of the Zoomers that I know, the men/boys are more likely to be quietly terfy and the women/girls are mostly still tras.
And when it comes to the Gen Alphas I know, who are old enough to have an opinion, they think the idea that you can change sex is stupid. Some of the Gen Alphas are borderline homophobic. (Also, bit of a tangent..... but, they laugh at the idea that cow farts can destroy the planet). Overall, they are questioning the 'truths' that the generation above them has had pushed on them and finding them suspect.

It mightn't completely heal over but you're talking about a hole the size of a pinhead.

But piercings really are something you just stop wearing and that's pretty much that.
There was that fad for stretched out ear holes for a while though. Those must look even more stupid without the spacer-thing in them. But again, even a stupid droopy earlobe would be better than zipper tits. Droopy earlobes don't remove up to 20% of your immune system and remove your ability to breastfeed. Something that was my most treasured ability.

Up until a few years ago I had absolutely zero issue whatsoever with men wearing styles of clothing that were traditionally women's. So if men started wearing dresses or skirts, whatever, good for them. If they wanted to wear high heels, I thought they were stupid but that's because I think all high heels are stupid. If they wanted to wear make-up, who cares, men wore make-up in lots of eras. Tbh, for a while around the late 90s, early 00s, I quite liked punk-ish musicians with eye-liner and nail varnish.
But now when I see a man in 'women's' clothing, I just think AGP. Or if it's a very young guy, gender activist, who may have no ill intentions himself but who is unthinkingly making it easier for those who do. Either way I feel distrustful and unwilling to have my child be around them. So I can see how this could also blow back on any and all men who work with children because this shit is making a lot of people rethink what they used to accept and will ultimately swing people back in a more conservative direction. Though if it helps any, my absolute number one favourite teacher was the male teacher I had in the 80s when I was 7. He was truly fantastic. An inspiring teacher who somehow managed to see what all the kids in our class needed on an individual level and did everything he could to make sure everyone got what they needed to learn to the best of their abilities. He was also the school principal but did everything he could to stay in a teaching role for as long as he could. And made sure his school offered as many extracurriculars and special needs assistances as possible at a time those were very rare.

"How come they never say anything about someone regretting a tattoo or a piercing?"
I mean people talk about tattoo regret all the time. It's why laser removal and cover-up tattoos exist. I got a fucking stupid tattoo when I was going through a break-up when I was 21. I liked the tattoo for about a year, then I felt ambivalent about for a decade or so. Eventually I came to dislike it and then hate it even though it's not in a very visible part of my body. I went to a tattoo artist and had it covered up. I was pissed off with myself for making a silly decision that cost me money. I am now ambivalent about it again. I don't dislike it but if a treatment came along that would make it disappear and cost €100, I'd go for it. But it won't and I don't care.
If I had a do over I wouldn't have gotten it, but stupid picture of a flower on my hip, in no way equates to poisoning myself with testosterone, having zipper tits and a roll of skin cut off my thigh and stitched onto my abdomen.
Student describes what it's like to be gender critical in Irish secondary school by xoenix in TumblrInAction
I have been told, and I have nothing to back this up - so feel free to call bullshit, that neurological studies have been done the show religiosity, activism and very loyal following of a sports team all activate similar brain patterns. It really would have been great if we could have settled on following sports instead of irrational activism.
If only we could make the Irish football team kind of good again like they were under Jack Charlton in the 90s. Being good at rugby and women's boxing isn't cutting it. And GAA just doesn't have a loyal enough following in the cities.
