Then "troll" might be a more apt description. For me, at least, there's entertainment in knowing that he's doing this in jest, even if it is lowbrow. The people of his target group aren't usually a bunch of high class intellectuals. Other videos as Lucinda are much more obvious in their absurdity, it's just it becomes a lot less clear when it's specifically about trans stuff. Like you said, it's hard when the individuals you've chosen are already so insane.

I recently got the opportunity to sit in on a friend's online psychology class where they talked about the condition and the professor made a point to say multiple times that it's a controversial diagnosis. From what I read in the past, some psychologists feel that the symptoms of DID have too much overlap with things like Borderline Personality Disorder and Schizophrenia to properly diagnose it as a separate condition.

You're totally right that if it is a real condition it is nothing like what TikTok portrays. I've seen PTSD dissociative episodes which are somewhat similar and they can get very ugly.

I wish more people knew this. It's really hard to learn about the condition and the beliefs around it because of how much fake shit is out there now. I only know as much as I do because I ran into a faker before faking the condition was as popular so the few resources that existed weren't biased and filled with garbage like they are today.

Crazy woman creates "LGBTQIA+" Church of Prismatic Light because Oklahoma lawmakers are trying to protect children from transition by lunarstrain in LGBDropTheT

[–]lunarstrain[S] 10 insightful - 1 fun10 insightful - 0 fun11 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Abridged version

A day after Tiffany Holloway’s transgender son said he’d kill himself if he can’t get the testosterone drug that helps him, in the wake of states passing laws banning such treatments for minors, Holloway did something big.

A little over a week ago Holloway started a secular religion, which holds in its key doctrine protection for the right to gender-affirming medical care. In a matter of days the Church of Prismatic Light, a safe community for the LGBTQIA+ community that doesn’t worship a deity and holds as a central tenet loving one’s self, grew to more than 90,000 members, Holloway said in a video Thursday.

Holloway brought the idea of the church up to her more than 350,000 TikTok followers – she became a preper after surviving the Texas freeze in 2021 and amassed a large TikTok following – and said the response was overwhelming and supportive.

We have had a ton of kids reach out to us who told us that before they heard of this idea, that they too were suicidal, and that now that they see the support that this has gotten, and just the amount of community standing behind them, that they have hope for the first time,’ Holloway said. Holloway’s son is among them, and is no longer talking about suicide, she said.

What could the church do to help those impacted by anti-trans laws, like the “Don’t Say Gay” laws popping up in more and more states? Holloway said if Christians can have “See you at the Pole” gatherings for students at public schools, why couldn’t the Church of Prismatic Light hold after-school gatherings where kids can discuss those banned topics

“We could say anything we wanted to about gender identity and sexuality, because it’s a part of our religion, that we are able to express ourselves, and there wouldn’t be anything that those states could do about it because it would be under the basis of religious faith,” Holloway said.

What does the church believe in? Holloway described a church that has no central deity.

“We don’t believe in the concept of perfection. We believe that the best you can do is do a little better than you did the day before,” Holloway said. “There’s no steps that you need to take to love yourself. You can love yourself right now as you are. We’re all imperfect beings.”

Oklahoma in March became the fourth state to enact an anti-trans sports law, and Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt on Wednesday signed a bill banning non-binary gender maker on birth certificates, hte first law of it’s kind in the U.S.

Oklahoma Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, on Tuesday filed two bills that would prohibit educators from teaching about sexuality and gender identity, modeled after Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” law, which Alabama lawmakers copied, and a bill to ban anyone under 18 from undergoing gender reassignment treatment or surgery.

"One of the things I have to do today is have a talk with my child when he gets off school about what is happening,” Holloway said. “Many parents across Oklahoma are going to have to have the same conversation. These laws are going to get kids un-alived.”

TLDR: Oklahoma woman has created a fake church to get religious protection so she may gender groom children in schools without legal repercussions. Her inspiration was her own "trans" child suicide baiting for testosterone. And Oklahoma has some pretty stellar child safety bills processing.

Completely agree. I know some of the real lesbians in my generation like and/or choose the redesigned lipstick flags but I can't stand them. To me they represent the acknowledgement of TQ-flavored tumblr identity politics on a larger scale. I remember being shocked at the time how quickly the "new" lesbian flag took off and was now available in a bunch of stores on various things.

I don't know if i'm allowed to say this, but i always felt sad (not pity) for the yaoi gendies and hsts's.

I feel bad for HSTS, if gender identity disorder is a real thing then that's gotta suck. If it doesn't exist, then being that much of a self hating gay man/lesbian also sucks.

I was in Tumblr for a long time, since 2014 if i'm remembering correctly.

I can tell, based off of your user. That album was crazy popular back then, haha.

If you were on tumblr when the "glorification" of gay men were ongoing, with mood / stimboards, kiss scenes, shipping wars, you'd understand it.

Weirdly enough, I was. I actually joined a couple years earlier than you did. For me, that glorification seemed to stem from fetishization, rather than reverence in most users I saw. Same as the girls who were on DeviantArt and talking about nosebleeds from teh hawt yaoiz a couple years prior. Tumblr was a massive platform for teen girls at the time though, it's conceivable that we were exposed to two different groups of girls.

Gays were thoughtful, caring, passionate and all that good traits,

I'm a little confused about how they came to these conclusions, haha. Most yaoi I've seen, like the Japanese stuff, is more abusive than the average heterosexual relationship. I can think of a handful of titles that vividly feature rape right off the top of my head. That was the year Dramatical Murder was popular and that game is just gay rape porn. I read/watched a lot of yaoi when I was young because I thought that yuri was exclusively pornographic, and I wanted to see same sex relationships even if they weren't my sex. I had to stop reading/watching multiple series because of the blatant coercion/rape they showed.

As for the shipping side of things, the majority of those men/boys were not gay in canon. So, all of their homosexual interactions were written by other girls and everyone knew this. It's funny, what they really wanted in a man was a woman's perspective in a man's body.

I have a female friend that thinks gay men live like the manu rios couple in elite because she only consumes netflix content.

Netflix content is really weird.

This still does not justify all the tricks they pulled off however

Yeah, this is where any sympathy I have wanes. Auto-homosexuals have gotten more and more into the idea of rape by deception as time has gone on. They're generally not as bad as AGPs yet but they're trending in that direction.

A queer woman struggles for validation by Chunkeeguy in LGBDropTheT

[–]lunarstrain 16 insightful - 8 fun16 insightful - 7 fun17 insightful - 8 fun -  (0 children)

This article is absolutely bat shit.

What doing sex work has taught me is that most men have either contacted a sex worker, hired a sex worker, or thought about hiring a sex worker. And there’s no shame in that.

Whether it's immoral or not, it seems sort of weird to have to pay for sex.

I have spent my whole life, even outside of sex work, focused on serving and pleasing men, both in and out of bed, and I’m sick of it.

Maybe it's time for a career change if you hate it that much? You clearly seem to have some resources if you're writing HuffPo.

Hiring a professional, as opposed to finding someone at a bar or from a dating app, is more appealing to me because after years of catering to everyone else’s sexual needs,

Again, quit your fucking job.

I want an (almost) guaranteed fun sexual experience, complete with orgasms, without having to engage in a lot of emotional labor.

Have you heard of masturbation?

Sex with women, for me, feels safer, more intimate, and I just enjoy the mechanics of it much more.

Safer? That's a pretty sad adjective...

seeking out this experience felt like an important step in destigmatizing my queerness within myself.

Ladies, do you remember when we all hired prostitutes to destigmatize our sexualities? Me neither.

From doing research outside my area, I know there are providers who are open to queer women, enby or trans clients, but not only is the distance prohibitive for me, most of them charge A LOT more than the average person could afford. This leads me to believe that these services may not be accessible to most women.

Y'know... This might come as a shock but sex can be free.

And if I’m having this much difficulty finding a provider, I can’t imagine what those who are trans or gender-nonconforming would go through. This is systemic within the sex industry.

Oh no! How are trans people supposed to get their life saving and gender affirming prostitutes?! Who will think of the poor trans!

To say children are being indoctrinated is the exact same thing right wing people say about gay people.

Some people say that Islam is bad, does that mean I'm not allowed to say Scientology is bad?

(I say Islam because people like this often feel that Muslims can do no wrong and all critique of them is Islamophobia.)

Just because it was incorrect regarding gay movement, doesn't mean it isn't correct in relation to the trans movement.

And people are trying to make legislation against gay people “promoting an agenda” you’re legitimately ruining your own cause with this.

Okay, sure. Whatever. I'd rather shoot myself in the foot by telling the truth and protecting children than be comfortable while watching vulnerable children be guinea pigs.

On August 23rd, 2016, the term "Egg mode" was defined by Urban Dictionary user bitplane7 as "Someone who is trans but doesn't know it yet. Someone who is still an embryo of the trans person they will eventually hatch into." The definition gained 106 upvotes and four downvotes in three years. On August 9th 2017, Urban Dictionary user happycookie defined "egg" as "Transgender person who hasn't come out yet. A chick or a cock on the inside." the definition has received 329 upvoted and 89 downvotes in two years. It has since become the top definition for this term.

-Know Your Meme

I always thought the origin was going to be some dumb joke like "crack an egg and a chick comes out", somewhat surprised to see I'm right.

Cracking refers to their weird slang regarding eggs, it's their version of "the closet". It means when you supposedly have that aha moment that you're trans. You've cracked out of your egg and become your "true" and "authentic" self. Not sure of the origin.

I'm worried about AGB, I don't think it has much longer.

Reddit banned the majority of the mods of Cringetopia with no warning, for the crime of allowing trans critical comments/content. They did this so they could either 1. ban the sub for lack of moderation or 2. implement their own trans mods. I bring this up because the moderation is already intentionally lax on AGB, so I would not be surprised if it were banned/the owner is banned in the near future for lack of moderation.

Some highlights from the comments

I know it's rough, I've been there. But she's clearly not worth your time.

Yeah! Fuck her for wanting a normal lesbian relationship, utterly pathetic. We real queers take pride in our dysfunctional relationships that are built on lies.

i know its hard buddy but she isnt the right one for you. you deserve to be with someone who sees you for who you truly are, a trans man, and love You. ... side note this kind of thing has happened to me but im always curious why the other person wouldnt at least question their sexuality lmao like breaking news i was trans this whole time and you liked me so sorry to say u are attracted to at least one man lol

Someone's bitter because she painted herself into a corner. "It's invalidating for lesbians to date trans men because I'm a REAL man!" "Wait, why are you leaving??? Aren't you going to change for me???"

She doesn’t love you for you. She loves you for what you represent for her and her identity. That’s not true love. Sorry dude. Show yourself the love you deserve and make space for a person that wants you completely no matter what your physical being looks like.

Love is having no preferences or standards. Oh, and no interests or friends, because your whole existence should be focused on me and validating me. I don't know why I can't get a girlfriend...

consider a queerplatonic relationship ! it’s essentially a committed relationship similar to dating but without some of the romantic/s*xual elements, and you can see other partners because it isn’t dating. just an idea.

Have you tried reframing the concept of friendship so you feel less rejected? That's what I do! It's very healthy and normal.

That is incredibly civil, especially when you've just finished telling him to fuck off.

This is such a good point, especially with the overlap of trans-identifying teens and teens who fake mental conditions on TikTok/Discord for attention, it's probably a significant amount of them that are also only trans online.

It's funny, the news has actually talked a lot about social contagion in teens this year because of how many girls have magically developed Tourette's in a short period of time but somehow it's impossible that social contagion could be why so many of these girls are trans now.

Brief History on Pride

The first pride parades started in 1970, but Rivera and other transgender people were discriminated against and discouraged from participation.

WE OWE PRIDE TO BLACK AND TRANSGENDER WOMEN WHO THREW BRICKS AT COPS.

I have no idea if Rivera was discouraged from participating in Pride but it seems unlikely and Rivera was known for lying. The second part is completely false, though.

Edit: Looked into it and it's even more rewriting of history. This part is a little hazy and not from particularly reliable sources, but what I could find seems to say that a lot of feminists at the time found drag misogynistic and since there was a big crossover between feminists and lesbians, drag queens were asked to march at the end of the Christopher Street Liberation Day march. Rivera and Johnson's group, Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries aka S.T.A.R. put themselves at the front of the march in protest.

I hate HAES so much, it's no surprise that the creator is a fucking nonbinary nutjob named Lindo (her name was Linda).

However, I do believe in "fatphobia", sort of, even if that word is stupid. Bad doctors sometimes like to medically neglect obese patients and attribute everything wrong with them to their weight. I know obesity can cause all kinds of problems but it's the medically responsible thing to at least check that there's nothing else wrong, especially if the symptoms the patient is describing are abnormal or severe. Otherwise you end up having patients with autoimmune diseases that continue to suffer, get even more overweight, and end up hospitalized with a much later stage illness than it could have been.

I also think it's shitty to inherently attribute obesity to laziness, don't get me wrong, there are certainly lazy fat people out there but from personal experience and observation fatness tends to be symptomatic of something bigger (no pun intended) and a lot of obese people would benefit from therapy.

I don't believe an adult woman would talk like a child just entering puberty...

Unfortunately I have met a woman as mentally and emotionally stunted. She was exactly like this, always suicide baiting. I can't say I'm surprised that someone as messed up as this is looking for answers in transition. Whether you believe there are people who are genuinely trans or not, she needs therapy for her blatant emotional issues and should've been screened before testosterone.

Honestly, I don't think we even need to redefine it. They're doing the work for us by alienating all sensible people and then crying transphobia. Anyone who has been on the receiving end of this behavior knows that it doesn't hold much weight and does not inherently mean that the accused wants to genocide trans individuals.

All this whinging because she wanted to wear a light blue simplistic dress instead of a tux or gown. This story would've been more meaningful if it were about her fear of breaking tradition or something, but she spends all this time talking about how she's neither feminine nor masculine and then decides to wear one the most feminine articles of clothing you can. A waste of words.

TLDR: This is satirical and she is in no way trying to make her kids actually homosexual, she's just using that idea to illustrate how parents assume their kids are heterosexual and make comments, some inappropriate. Oh, and some talk about "Don't Say Gay". I'm sure the provocative title is there to drum up interest/outrage and to dunk on people who didn't bother to read anything other than the headline. Not saying that it's a great practice. /end

I agree that those baby onesies are in bad taste, I think it's fucking weird to have your baby dressed in "I ❤️ Boobies".

However, I don't think it's the end of the world for people to assume heterosexuality in others, as statistically they're probably right. As long as they can take being wrong well and for parents, they make sure to show they're okay with homosexuality. The only time I was ever bothered was when I was being projected upon, like when I was young and adults said that random little boys were my boyfriends.

My mom made a point to explain gay and lesbian to me when the topic came up while we were watching home designing shows in a normal, accepting, and age appropriate way. She never shied away from talking about people we knew being in same sex relationships, either. So, coming out to her wasn't a big deal for me.

I think this happened to a lot of girls because Yaoi was their first exposure to sexual content, and it was at a young age. Being shown pornography and even other more tame sexual content can fry your brain if you're too young, makes you obsessive and weird.

For a little more background, this is a manga called Junjou Romantica. It has three awful depictions of gay romance and it's been ongoing since 2002. It was developed into an anime in 2008, which skyrocketed its popularity among young western girls. I remember it remained popular until sometime in 2014. As you can tell, the art is terrible and usually the covers, like this one, have the best illustrations. There's tons of teddy bears and cutesy crap all throughout. Oh, and of course it was written by a woman.

I share this because I can't help but laugh at this ugly garbage being so titillating to so many teenage/tweenage girls who are now adult "men".

I don't know why she couldn't have done a photo with only her draped in the flag. Her husband could be in the photo, too, with his arm wrapped around her. This would both assert her bisexuality for that sweet social media attention and show that he loves and supports her.

Edit: Not to say that bisexual people can't talk about being bisexual if they're in a straight relationship. It just feels weird and attention grabbing to post something like this to social media.

If they had been able to shut up about being trans in LG spaces, the bare minimum, so many people wouldn't have gotten fed up with them. That would take some self restraint, though, and the trans community houses some of the most self indulgent fetishists and narcissists around. Not like it'd be much better for us anyway. Just because you're not constantly demanding trophies for being a beautiful and valid womxn doesn't make you not a creepy man bothering lesbians.

Sure, while LGB was accused of predation it was mostly unfounded, save for a few twisted individuals that happen to be gay. In contrast, we are actively seeing predators that openly walk amongst the rest of the T, so I'd argue there's more of a basis to these generalizations. Even if they are just that, generalizations.

While I feel LGB did end up leading to a slippery slope, we had no idea that our organizations would be greedy enough to abandon us and look for a new cash cow after we got the right to marry. The T+ movement has already opened the door to the transage movement, as we saw with that one MTF pedophile who claimed he was a small child, and queer theory in general, which is all about destigmatization of sexuality, even if it's repugnant or harmful.

So, dear heterosexual ‘queers’, I’d like you to do two things for me. First, imagine if white people blacked themselves up, called themselves the n-word and rewrote the history and culture of black people (in all its myriad manifestations over thousands of years) to be in line with portrayals in 19th-century minstrel shows. Second, bugger off, bugger off further than that, and then keep buggering off. (But don’t worry – you won’t have to do any actual buggering.)

The gay marriage movement was successful because same-sex marriage doesn't magically invalidate heterosexual marriage nor expect the majority to cater to us in some special way. Because of this, the average person came around, the US going from two-thirds opposed in 2004 to two-thirds in favor in 2014. Republicans, specifically, went from 19% (2004) to 55% (2021). Things like expecting anti-gay religious people to bake cakes or do photography for gay weddings have never gone over particularly well, especially with conservatives, because our sexuality was now impacting other people and their personal beliefs. This is why the trans movement is doing so poorly, they're aggressively campaigning for special privileges that impose their beliefs on everyone else instead of general acceptance and the public perception is only going to get worse if they don't back off.

Article text:

The transgender and gay-rights movements are often lumped together — including in the very acronym LGBT — so many observers assume that the transgender cause will follow a similar trajectory. But there’s a reason why transgender activists won’t experience the level of rapid success that gay-rights activists enjoyed over the past several decades.

Broad acceptance of gay marriage represented one of the most extraordinary shifts of public opinion on a major social issue in American history. In 1996, the Defense of Marriage Act sailed through both chambers of Congress and was signed into law by Bill Clinton. In 2004, the year eleven states passed bans on gay marriage in ballot measures, Americans opposed gay marriage by a two-to-one margin (or 60 percent to 31 percent), according to the Pew Research Center. In 2008, the same California electorate that voted for Barack Obama by 24 points also passed a measure banning gay marriage.

Yet by 2014, the year before the Supreme Court decided gay marriage was a constitutional right, a majority of Americans came to support gay marriage. By 2019, Americans supported it by 61 percent to 31 percent. In other words, during a 15-year period in American politics characterized by bitter partisan divisions, the nation went from two-to-one against gay marriage to two-to-one in favor.

Many people have operated under the assumption that the rapid shift in public opinion on gay marriage provides a preview of where the transgender-rights movement will go. Democrats have jumped on the bandwagon of referring to “pregnant people” and “people who menstruate” and many Republicans (up until recently) have been trigger-shy about engaging on the issue. Also, many of the “collapse of America” pessimists on the right have assumed that views on gender identity will follow the same path as trends on sexual orientation.

But there is a key difference between the two social-change movements. While there are many reasons for the rapid shift in opinion on gay marriage, one strong component to it was that there was a libertarian thread at the heart of it. Proponents argued that if two men fell in love, decided they wanted to spend their life together, and wanted to make it official, it should be their own business and nobody else’s. Arguments made by social conservatives about the breakdown of traditional marriage did not prevail, especially with the younger generation, because people ultimately concluded that one couple’s same-sex marriage poses no threat to anybody else’s ability to have a happy heterosexual marriage. The libertarian argument is what helped win over a lot of small-government Republican and independent voters to the cause of gay marriage. In 2004, just 19 percent of Republicans supported gay marriage, according to Gallup, but by 2021, a 55-percent majority did.

What’s substantially different about the current debate on the transgender front is that it has moved away from the successful strategy of gay-marriage proponents. While the public is broadly accepting of the idea that adults who want to identify as a different gender and undergo hormone treatment to live out their lives should be given space to do so, transgender activists are pushing for changes that have direct ramifications for others. Two men falling in love and getting married may not directly affect anybody else, but when an athlete who has gone through male puberty starts to dominate a woman’s sport, it does.

Notably, with the gay-rights debate, when it came to the issue of whether bakers and photographers should be forced to provide services for gay weddings, the public was much more divided than on gay marriage, with Republicans overwhelmingly saying such businesses should be free to refuse service. Polling indicates that the transgender movement, too, is on shakier ground when it comes to gaining support for policies that depart from a “live and let live” attitude.

For instance, in a Gallup poll taken last year, two-thirds of Americans favored allowing transgender people to openly serve in the military. But the same poll found that 62 percent believed that transgender men and women should play on teams that match their own birth gender.

A YouGov poll on a variety of transgender issues found that a majority of adults said that a person should be able to legally self-identify as a different gender than their biological sex, but majorities opposed allowing transgender women to participate in women’s sporting events or for biological males who have not undergone transition surgery to use women’s changing rooms or bathrooms merely by identifying as women.

The women’s sports issue is the one most likely to backfire on the transgender movement as more people witness what it means in practice. This can be seen dramatically in the case of University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, who was ranked 462 as a male swimmer but shot up to No. 1 in the nation after transitioning and being allowed to compete in the women’s division.

Teammates, who have spoken anonymously due to fear of repercussions, have complained about the fundamental unfairness of allowing somebody with inherent biological advantages to compete against women who have worked hard to get where they are but now have no chance of success. In a recent interview, one teammate spoke of her “frustration” with the “insane” policy and the refusal of the school or the NCAA to support cisgender women. She recounted how teammates were uncomfortable with seeing Lia’s male genitalia in the locker room but were told by the coach to just “suck it up.”

Notably, the swimmer drew a distinction between the idea of being open and tolerant of transgender athletes without adopting a policy that is unfair to others.

“It is not like people are discriminating against Lia and not allowing her to swim,” the Penn swimmer said. “She identified as a woman and competed on the men’s team. That was the choice she was making. Then to compete with the women’s team. That is something that cisgender women are not choosing. There are categories for a reason. They make sense and ensure fairness. . . . The NCAA has not said anything, and by not saying anything, they are discriminating against cisgender women.”

Transgender activists will likely find a receptive public to the extent that they focus on arguing for more tolerance and compassion. But if they continue down the current path, they are going to run smack up against Americans’ understanding of human biology as well as their appreciation for basic fairness.

In Florida, there is no statute specifying any minimum age for arrest, which means there is nothing legally preventing a preschooler, even two-and-a-half-years old, from being arrested.

Last year, a Florida House panel approved a proposed bill to establish a minimum arrest age of seven years old, but the bill failed to become law.

This was the most shocking part to me. I guess that gives "baby jail" a new meaning.

If gay/lesbians didn't find them attractive you confront the hard reality that exists.

That's the weird thing, these fetishists can be a lot more resilient than your average TQ+. Largely because it's about self perception and fantasy, that isn't to say that it isn't heightened by validation, but they can get along fine without it. It wasn't until recently that external validation was even on the table for them.

I remember online in the 2000s coming across groups of Yaoi girls who fantasized about being the insultingly stereotypical gay men from the manga they read and no homosexuals would give them the time of day. They were often publicly mocked, and yet, they continued to indulge because of the sexual motivator.
