Maybe he'll make an exception for my vagina if I creep on him! by Chunkeeguy in LGBDropTheT

Compelling people to use pronouns that don't reflect one's sex isn't setting a boundary, though. Boundaries by definition can only be defensive. The only way way something like this could be truly defensive, self-protective establishment of boundaries would be like if the trans-identified person decided that they wouldn't be friends with someone who didn't use their preferred pronouns. That's completely their prerogative. Compelled speech isn't.

Also, "don't touch me there" isn't analogous to "don't call me that". "Don't touch me there" doesn't necessitate that the person touches you elsewhere; they can just not touch you at all. But "don't call me that" does necessitate that people call you something else.

Beware of a new type of conversion therapy: "Reintegrative therapy" by stunaep in LGBDropTheT

[–]soundsituation 8 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 0 fun9 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I absolutely believe this is conversion therapy despite the repeated denials to the contrary that appear throughout the paper. It's worth a full read-through, but two things stand out to me as especially telling:

1) The fact that this article only discusses gay males, even though the form of therapy is initially described as being a "clinical trauma treatment for males and females, regardless of their sexuality".
2) This quote at the end: "Many clients who are gay-identified, but wish to explore their attractions in a neutral way, and to resolve any traumas they may discover, do not see this potential shift in their sexuality as a negative side-effect. They often give consent for their sexuality to possibly shift on its own to whatever that result may be", which to me heavily implies that the patient sample consists of gay men who wish they were bi or heterosexual.

Seances - It's your one chance to see this film by soundsituation in Art

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

Seances, co-created with the National Film Board of Canada, presents a wholly new way of experiencing film narrative. By dynamically generating a series of film sequences in unique configurations, potentially hundreds of thousands of new stories are conjured by code. Each will exist only in the moment—no pausing, scrubbing, or sharing—offering the audience one chance to see the generated film. This project, co-created by the ever imaginative Guy Maddin, is a visual discourse on the impact of loss within film. All the sequences pay homage to lost silent films from the early day of cinema. Seances is nostalgic but it is also frequently hilarious. Part of the joy and sadness of Seances is that many possible narratives are created but they can be only viewed once before they disappear forever.

Dating as a Gay or Lesbian while not believing in Trans Ideology, how has it been? by Kai_Decadence in LGBDropTheT

[–]soundsituation 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Last week I encountered the term "moral extortion". It is what it sounds like: a persuasion technique that relies on inducing guilt ("do the work") rather than using reasoned argument. I think it's a useful concept to understand woke tactics in general, and in particular how gender ideologues might target well-meaning but naive LGB people more readily than they do straights.

I think I remember you saying at some point that you're Gen Z, right? If so, yeah, it might be a tough time out there right now. Fortunately though queer theory is really stupid and doesn't stand up to scrutiny, so I really do believe most people will wake up.

Your Theories on the Neo-Nazi/MRA/Incel/Alt-Right/Fascist to Trans Pipeline? by jay-day in GenderCritical

I pretty much agree with the specifics of what you wrote, but I think "hopping around from ideology to ideology" implies a randomness to their ideological commitments, when in fact, as OP points out, there is a consistent feature: an attraction to extreme authoritarianism. And actually, I think your comment explains that attraction fairly well.

The trans movement is not a "be yourself" or "live your truth" movement, although that's what they depend on hoodwinking the masses into believing. It's an authoritarian/narcissistic/faux-religious inquisition that demands either faith or silence.

With the exception of Jean-Marie Le Pen, all the most high-profile fascists in Europe in the past thirty years have been gay.

Most of the article is spent cataloguing examples of this, although it goes much further back than the past thirty years, even suggesting that Hitler was gay.

This belief in the superiority of homosexuality had a strong German tradition that grew up at the turn of the twentieth century...they preached that gay men were the foundation of all nation-states and represented an elite, warrior caste that should rule.

This was interesting, kinda reminds me of the heterophobe4lyfe guy we have here.

The article ventures a couple potential explanations for the phenomenon: that they are in denial and hyper-focus on toughness as compensation, or

"Generally condemned by a society that continues to be largely hostile to gays, some men may find refuge and a new power status in the far right. Through adherence to the politics espoused by fascist groups, a new identity emerges - one where they aren't outcasts, because they are White Men, superior to everyone else. They render the gay part of their identity invisible - or reject the socially less acceptable parts, like being feminine - while vaunting what they see as superior."

It addresses both philosophy and incentive structures.

That degree of oversensitivity is not organic, not as a society-wide phenomenon anyway; it's been culturally conditioned. And as such I fully believe it can be unlearned, but without a massive paradigm shift that would require a level of personal motivation that most redditors just don't have. So I agree with you but I think it's as much about culture as it is personality.

What are some good ways to support GNC kids? by reluctant_commenter in LGBDropTheT

[–]soundsituation 9 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 0 fun10 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Not this

I don't know. I think the answer is simple at an individual/family/community level (basically just taking a genuine and supportive interest in whatever hobbies kids pick up) but elusive at the societal level. In general I'm very anti-propaganda, so that biases me. By the way, I hope you'll post this to s/GenderCritical too.

Edit: more thoughts: I think one of the most important things we can do is promote resilience. There's no getting rid of the sense of otherness felt by people who fall outside the center region of a normal distribution, but we can make an effort to return to a "sticks and stones" mentality. And this can be done sensitively, by sympathizing with kids when they're sad and letting them have that process, but also letting them know that they will be okay and that they might even be tougher when all is said and done. I also think it's important to get kids thinking about their ethics; in the case of a GNC kid, encouraging them to question whether their nonconformity actually hurts anybody, for example.

LGBTA Wiki definition of Lesbian includes attraction to men... by jay-day in LGBDropTheT

[–]soundsituation 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'm not the person you asked, but since I'm of a similar mind I'll give you my reason. Both 'gay' and 'bi' work as adjectives; lesbian doesn't, not in English anyway, and not in any language that I'm aware of. I think that when a descriptor takes noun form it's far more likely to be seen, and felt, as an identity category. It's the subtle difference between "I run" or "I like to run" and "I'm a runner"; there's a sense of persona with the noun version where I think a lot more is assumed beyond the essential qualities. I'm not against all identity categories and in fact do sometimes use them to describe myself, but usually only when it's something I'm really proud of, usually something that's been earned, or else when it's a simple convention of the language for which there's no legitimate replacement. I'm not ashamed of being attracted to women but I'm not proud of it either. It just is. So when I do tell people I either say that I'm gay or that I date women. But what usually happens is I mention I'm seeing someone, they assume it's a guy, and I correct them and we move on.

I really appreciate your comments in this thread. Religious LGB perspectives are illuminating and unfortunately rare. That said, I don't see how "the logic is the same between LGB and T". In an earlier comment you said

In terms of the definitions they are using this is accurate -- it would be profoundly detached from reality to see what gay people do in bed as something that is procreative in a strict biological sense.

but I have never heard a gay person claim such. Does this essentially boil down to an objection to the use of the words "marriage" and "sex" to describe anything other than heterosexual marriage and PIV intercourse (because if so, I get that) or is there something deeper I'm missing here?

You remove that factor and people are just going to do what they like. There'd probably be a lot more straight women into sports if

I'd say we've already pretty much arrived here. There might be a higher percentage of lesbians in sports than in the general population, but women's sports are overwhelmingly populated by heterosexuals. The idea that straight women don't like sports is very antiquated, and hasn't been true at any point in my lifetime.

For now at least. Probably won't be too long before they start demanding people end their relationships to date trans people.

I've wondered about this. Monogamy is distinctly un-queer, and the most exclusionary practice out there outside of celibacy.

I left s/lesbians in part because it used to be very biphobic and I was sick of it.

I wasn't using saidit much back when this was happening, but I've gone through the archives and have seen exactly what you're talking about. It seemed to me like it was a troll campaign; lots of new and/or barely used accounts that only ever posted about their disdain for bisexual women.

Well in that case no one except a non-monogamous pansexual open to an infinite amount of partners, regardless of whether or not they are attracted to them, can escape the bigotry accusation. It's too ridiculous to hold water when taken to its natural conclusion. There's also the issue of "Why can't you?" vs "Why should I have to?" I'm wearing a gray shirt today. Why can't I just wear a yellow one? The fact is that I didn't want to, and that's reason enough.

I don't know to what extent pedophilia is innate or immutable, but the fact that it causes harm is what sets it apart from sexual orientation.

Our only disagreement here is that I think this is all that matters, from a legal/utilitarian/messaging perspective. In a liberal paradigm (and just to be super clear here since these terms are all muddied now, I mean liberal as opposed to authoritarian, not conservative) it doesn't matter whether something is a choice or not, or how scandalized people are by another person's choice. All that matters is whether actions cause direct material harm and infringe on another person's rights. I believe this renders forced conversion therapy a moot threat, too, because that is an infringement on your rights, for which you committed no previous infringement of your own.

I also don't want homosexuality to be misunderstood as a choice because people assign moral values to choices.

They still do, though. The far right wants us to suck it up and make more white babies for the ethnostate (unless you're not white, in which case they want you deported or genocided, but that's another topic). The religious people want us to either stay celibate or get married/have kids with an opposite sex partner anyway, because they see homosexuality like any other sinful temptation that can and should be resisted. In both cases, our innate attraction, our desires, are beside the point; the expectation is that we align our actions with the collective ideal.

Perhaps an unpopular opinion, but I really wish gay rights activists hadn't yoked themselves to the immutability argument. Whether we are born this way or not is an interesting scientific question but it ultimately doesn't serve us politically. The best, simplest argument for equal treatment regardless of sexual orientation is an appeal to (classical) liberalism: if it doesn't hurt anyone or infringe on others' rights, allow it, and if so, don't.

I thought I had heard of every fringe diet but Budwig is new to me. And I can sympathize with your aunt; standard cancer treatments sound like absolute hell.

I like the idea of nootropics myself, but they don't really work.

On the whole I have to agree, sadly. There are two that I like (L-Theanine and ashwagandha) but they only seem to work for like a week before I can't notice a difference anymore. Maybe it's better to cycle them.
