It removes sympathy, understanding and respect from those people who choose to undergo painful medical and cosmetic procedures to help their process of change, and who nonetheless accept their own valuable difference.

Why should respect be given by default? What's there to respect? There's nothing understandable about wanting to castrate yourself for a sexual fetish.

I'm sick of this ceremonial kissing of the girlcock. Here's a thought experiment, replace "transgender" with "transabled" or "transracial" or "foot fetishists" or "boob job recipients".

It may seem petty to reject the idea of gender-neutral public lavatories, but it isn’t if you are an older woman or a young girl having her first period.

Don't other women and girls deserve privacy? What's the threshold for regaining the right to privacy - when you're too old for men to fap to?

once you, inevitably, break some obscure law

  1. You don't need to have actually broken any law. There's the catch-all change of "extremism", of course, but people have also been sentenced to fines and prison terms for breaking laws which hadn't existed at the time but judges thought should. The sentencing process and the court session don't need to be legal. Evidence doesn't need to be legally admissible. Fucking aura reading is admissible. Who are you going to complain to, the ECHR?

  2. You also don't need to be banned/sued through official government channels. "US-style" private deplatforming has been widely used here since 1991.

Two different adult women raped several girls each by pretending to be boys, and enough people have been scammed by Nigerian princes. It's not impossible that a would-be rapist strings along a shy or desperate person. Shy people's brains go into denial mode and shut down when they suspect they're being scammed: no no no, this can't possibly be happening! Telling a man he's not manly enough is the ultimate insult, likewise for women (especially if she is "gender-nonconforming" -- that's sexist!). A beard and male pattern baldness immediately signal "man" to most people.

It helps if you're hot and can take your pick from hot people, but someone who rolled snake eyes in the genetics department can look at a powdered keg or a garden gnome and think, hey, maybe here's my chance at love.

Photos obviously don't count, they're shopped and filtered. They're more like pose references for artists at this point.

Am I in the wrong for feeling like my male experience is being "appropriated" here?

No, what they're doing is offensive and slimy, especially given the obvious sexual component to them fetishizing boyhood.

But I don't see how this isn't exactly the same as what MTFs do to women.

It's exactly the same as what MTFs do to women.

I'm kind of expecting to be told that I'm not allowed to feel hurt because women have it worse in society and what MTFs do to them is therefore "worse."

I won't blame a woman who pretends to be a real man to get away from sex-based oppression - not to claim manhood, not to talk over men, not to invade male spaces (especially gay male spaces!), but to do something both men and women should be able to do in a fair world.

However, it's not what these women are doing -- they don't hide the fact they're female (FTM, so female) but claim special insight into the male experience for no purpose other than degrading real men. This will never be not offensive.

I had a crush on a boy, wanted to marry him and be a loving, dutiful, and 100% obedient wife. He was my first real friend, you see, and older (16 to my 13), and knew lots of fascinating stuff. But I didn't want to do anything dirty - why? Eww!

Generally, boys were awesome. But not that one, or that one, or indeed anyone in my class (idiots, with a couple exceptions good enough to talk videogames with), or anyone younger (haha toddlers) or older (brutish alcoholics). Really, had I ever thought about it, I'd have noticed that while boys in general might be "awesome", sharing in the Glorious Male Spirit, only my friend was a deserving representative.

And girls drooled. Droooooooooled. Dumb bimbos, all of them. Except that one, she's smart. Or that one, she's not book-smart but awesomely mischievous. Or that one, she's more awesome than me. Or that one, she's so beautiful, why is she so beautiful? I want to hold her hand or something. Again, had I ever thought about it, I'd have noticed that while girls were undoubtedly dumb bimbos, nine out of ten were exceptions.


As for "political" lesbians, where I am, this label is exclusively claimed by radical female separatists, and I'm fine with it. A woman who actively seeks potentially romantic friendships with women and has zero interest in men going forward is a lesbian if she says she is.

What are your thoughts on these tweets? by Nohope in LGBDropTheT

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

Someone said lesbians on T begin to find men attractive because the T makes their homo female brain think like a homo male... I don't understand that tweet at all, does anyone know what they mean?

It's not impossible. Remember that there are no true labels, only facts. A woman who previously said she was a lesbian goes on testosterone and starts dating men. Why? Because she's a fetishist who chose body modification over her relationship with a woman or a better chance of attracting women. Testosterone increases sex drive. She wants to have her fetish validated and goes to the subdemographic who would famously screw anything that moves (desperate low-status straight men). Because few people want a dumpy potato with a royal flush of personality disorders in their household, these relationships are as impermanent as those of cruising gay men.

  • Satchuel Cole (formerly Jennifer Benton)

He'll probably try to dismiss race as "a social construct" - point out how racist it is, how it "invalidates identities" of people of color, and that it really isn't a rebuttal - if racial boundaries are policed more strongly and it's "just" a social construct... eh? eh?

Transgender vs Transexual by EzukiRaen in LGBDropTheT

is the word transgender necessary for everyday, practical usage? From my new understanding, it's just another way to describe gender expression.

It isn't, and neither is "gender expression".

Words should describe distinct concepts which actually exist as distinct concepts. There's no such thing as universal "gender expression" and therefore no such thing as transgender.

In 2020, the gender rebels are: * homemaking husbands whose wives earn money in the formal economy * anti-hijab protestors * people in homosexual relationships.

These groups and their standing in the world are very, very different. However, all of them would be offended both by the suggestion they aren't really their actual sex, or that their defiance of gender norms should form the basis of their personality, or that these fundamental, life-changing decisions happen to be or should be accompanied by adopting a number of superficial mannerisms commonly associated with the opposite sex. Like, if you've gone so far as to risk your life to defy conventional femininity, a double mastectomy is a minor thing and pronouns don't even register on this scale. But this isn't happening, of course. Because gender isn't a spectrum, it's garbage.

Now people who modify their bodies after the oppoiste sex exist, and they deserve the same rights as other body modification enthusiasts. A "transwoman" no more belongs with women than a transcrocodile belongs in the swamp with the other crocodiles.

  1. I hate them. "Femme", now being also counterpart of "masc", is sexist and feeds the trans narrative. "Butch" is almost meaningless now as it's increasingly used to refer to women who dress conforming and sensible or like PeeWee Herman. No! A woman is "butch" if and only if she dresses and grooms like the average man and by that stands out from other women. Sensible women are not butch because they don't stand out. Women who dress tacky like PeeWee Herman aren't butch because a man wouldn't be caught dead wearing that. (a) and (b): no and no.

  2. No.

  3. I'm a Radical feminist, but I'm not particularly welcome among them in my country. They're much younger, very socially liberal, badly educated and it shows, into pop culture, hypocritical about slurs, and adhere to the doctrine of the original sin of internalized sexism. Look, if you didn't grow up with porn ads on copybooks in middle school, you have no place to armchair-psychoanalyze my hygiene routine, so shut your cinnamon pieholes. There's also a civil e-war going between liberal lesbians and radical feminist "political lesbians" (female separatists).

  4. Child adoption, pregnancy, childbirth.

  5. (a) Not as part of the acronym, although gay bros put their male privilege to good use defending same-sex attraction. (b) Drop everything after the B. (c) Probably a good idea if/when astroturfed representatives of "the G" adopt reproductive slavery as a campaign plank.

  6. TRAs are sex offenders and belong in prison. "Transbians" should be recognized as homophobic hate speech and have commensurate consequences.

  7. There are very few places where lesbians are welcome online. In real life, I mostly get crap for being female (e.g. male "colleagues" don't greet me, because most men's communities adhere to the rules of prison hierarchy and greeting a woman makes them "prison bottoms").

  8. Queer is a slur. Dyke and lesbo are self-deprecatory and should stay so. Homosexual is fine. Lesbian is perfect but shouldn't be appropriated by people who aren't in fact lesbians. Gay is for men. "Same-sex attracted" sounds awkward. "TERF" of course is a slur. (I sometimes use "the terves", "us terves" and the adjective "terven" ironically, talking about the gender-critical community with non-members, but never about an individual person or to describe the belief in the permanence of sex, which is just common sense).

  9. The labrys is the better flag by far because it distances lesbians from the alphabet soup variety stripes.

  10. Sex toys, veganism, not wanting children, body hair, anti-science (why on earth? aren't we "supposed" to be mannish?), unhealthy lifestyle (overweight, BO, smoking, alcohol), sparklypoo in the media. Short hair as a lesbian stereotype is sexist toward women in general.

10a. I have short hair because I'd look ugly otherwise, and I wear plaid overshirts with t-shirts because of the 90s cool factor. (I actually want to learn sewing and start making and wearing skirts and blouses.)

lesbian couples and single women regardless of their sexuality all have a human right to (again usually government or private insurance subsidized) donor sperm, long-term sperm banking and preservation, and to all the same assisted-conception treatments and embryo preservation that infertile couples with one female partner can access - even in cases where the lesbian couples or single women are not infertile themselves.

And they do. The problem with gay male couples and single men isn't the financial cost, it's the human cost of slavery, organ trade and human trafficking. Gay couples and single men should be able to adopt. Lesbian couples and single women should be additionally able to get pregnant and give birth. It's terrible that the human trafficking lobby tries to hold lesbian couples' and single women's fertility hostage, and it's terrible that some of them comply.

No one has the right to claim another living person's organs for their survival or happiness. Not a roided chomo. Not an instagram pimp/groomer. Not an unborn child. Not a same-sex couple. Not an infertile opposite-sex couple. Not a single man or woman. Not a national hero. Not even a victim of chomo-promoted child sterilization.

As for transes, they shouldn't even live near schools and children's facilities, nor have any unsupervised contact with children.

As Rationalmind pointed above, climate change is a cult now. Sinners must buy indulgencies from authorized sellers, while the environmental impact of the virtuous has been pronounced ok ex cathedra. Meanwhile, many true believers are uninterested in reducing their own observable environmental harm, leaving it to cult authorities to pray it away.

The masks, likewise: The virus is clearly spiritual because only demonic mass assemblies (such as church services) spread it, lootings and riots and spiritually clean businesses don't. Sinners are punished with shutdowns, the virtuous get to stay open, get covid relief, and are released with no bail.

What? She didn't retcon anything.

The books are writter from Harry Potter's point of view and were often criticized for that as, having decided on it, Rowling couldn't cover events Harry had no business witnessing, had to come up with contrived excuses for him witnessing what she wanted to depict, and couldn't play off the hero's limited perspective against the reader's broader knowledge and thus lost on tension and dramatic irony - important in children's literature. (Thus Harry ended up being somewhat more of an brickheaded asshole than he could have been.)

Dumbledore's orientation was nowhere in the books because schoolchildren don't think about their teachers' sexual orientation. Hell, schoochildren are often shocked when they see a teacher outside of school. And really, a British boarding school without gay teachers? Honestly IRL sorcery would be more believable.

On the other hand, these creeps are shoehorning their gross fetishism into an existing game. Parents may have vetted the game (rated E) which was supposedly about a girl overcoming self-doubt or something, and bought it for their children. Then an update comes out in which surprise, it's eckshually about a (presumably sexually abused) boy who wants to cut off his dick.

edit: just saw the programmer, Matt Thorson, renamed himself "Maddy". So it's not any character, it's the embodiment of his sadness over not having been groomed as a child. I feel sick already, thank you.

Should bisexuality get a distinction and coexist with pansexuality? (as in a image below) or should bisexuality also include men and women who are attracted to transmen/transwomen? pansexuality be reclaimed? What is your opinion about this? by [deleted] in LGBDropTheT

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

Bisexuals are people (trans-chasers included) attracted to both sexes. (A man who's attracted to both women and 'roided women with induced beard growth is heterosexual, a man who's attracted to women and men in dresses is bisexual.)

In contrast, pansexuals are solipsistic fetishists who are by their own definition "attracted to the person, not the genitals" -- they'd accept a partner of either sex as long as (s)he plays along with the fetish.

See Russian sexual media law that prohibits sexual content, including LGBT, being shown to kids, and gets misreported as a "gay propaganda ban." It's not, and it never was, and although Russia's censorship problem is insane and beyond unnecessary, I fully support not teaching explicit sexual content, including homosexuality, to students under 16.

What? This is a lie*. The "sexual media" law only targets "anti-family-values" content, which is radfem-adjacent body-positivity and some LGBT. No straight pervert ever got hit by it, no privileged libgay pervert either. Wonderzine continues operating. "Nonbinary" celebrity misogynists keep grooming children on Youtube and Tiktok.

I once bumped into a woman on reddit who was attracted to effeminate men, trans-women (only because they're effeminate men), and NB / androgynous men. (...) Or maybe, they're intimidated by men and find relationships with women safer and more familiar, and this is the safest way for them to be attracted to men.

Mostly this. Scared of "chads", sexism, revenge porn, the "bros before hos" attitude, so into men who (she thinks) won't betray her (haha fat chance, men who perceive themselves to be failures as men are the worst perverts).

But to me this sounds like you are telling the older sibling, addams - who from her post is a mere 21/22 herself - to be the boss of her parents, no? Sounds like you are saying it's her job to educate her own parents and somehow "get them to get (little sister) off the internet."

Not be the boss of her parents, educate them. Presidents have advisors, you know. Her parents are uninformed that people on the internet are grooming their child.

The child cannot consent to grooming. Trying to negotiate with the child to make her change her mind is nonsensical, because the child could not have consented. In some places, it's even illegal to provide her with the information for her to make an, uh, informed choice. The older sister should not be telling an 11-year-old about Yaniv trying to insert tampons into teen girls or Phil "Ana Valens" Wythe's rape camps. The people who are responsible for access to the child are the parents. They, with their parental authority, should decisively shut down grooming attempts and continue to safeguard the child.

The older sister should not be the one talking to the girl. She does not have parental authority, she can only "persuade", and we've already established the girl cannot be meaningfully "persuaded" because she can't give consent. Furthermore, I think it's bad parenting to argue with the child if you're going to put your foot down anyway, by proxy or otherwise. It robs the child of of autonomy in those aspects of her life she can be trusted with, like clothes, or food, or scheduling, or choice of advanced courses for college.

He allows existing religious adoption agencies to turn away gay couples. Which may be bad of them, but you know what? The state's record on child safeguarding, particularly deciding who makes a good parent, isn't great either. See: James Younger. Unless the state can come up with and enforce better mandatory criteria, religious (and other) agencies should be allowed to use their own.

wants to have Amy Coney Barrett as a seat in Supreme Court so she can roll back gay marriage

Gay marriage is safe. Abortion is in danger, but women's health in general and, even more broadly, women's rights are more in danger from Biden. Not every woman will have an unwanted pregnancy. Every woman needs to pee outside of home. The loss of equitable opportunities, job security and personal safety that comes with adopting genderist doctrine will damage access to abortion more than any ban ACB can reasonably try to push through from the bench.

The ECHR's ruling in that 2000 case said that it's a human rights violation not to allow trans people to remain or get married to someone of the same sex that they were "transitioning" to.

Especially sinister in light of UK's savage divorce law.

The GRA is a deeply flawed, contradictory law that was proposed and passed largely so trans people in the UK would be able to marry within their same "gender identity" or "legal sex" without going so far as to pass legislation that would make same-sex marriage legal for all people in the UK.

...which could've been easily accomplished by not letting people to change their legal sex in the first place. Wear a dress, become a horrorblob, stay legally the sex you were born, keep your poor opposite-sex spouse shackled to you.

I don't idolize them - but I don't begrudge them their fandoms, if any. Many people online have fan followings for absurd, intellectually offensive reasons. If I wanted to do something about it, I'd go after youtubers with child fans.

Similarly, I don't begrudge them their body modification lifestyle. That lifestyle has been colonized by horror fetishists - well guess what, my hobbies have, too. (Some I dropped, some I keep carving out a niche of sanity in.) Again, if I wanted to do something about body modification, I'd start with the most common surgeries and procedures women are having: boob jobs, nose jobs, ass jobs, facial liftings, Bella Hadid's chromosomal disorder look, anal bleaching. Once those are extinct, then I'll go after cat people, lizard people, fake men, and fake women.

The problem with transgenderism is not the surgeries adult body modification enthusiasts inflict on themselves - there are worse ways to waste money and worse ways to die - it's child abuse and the disenfranchisement of women and homosexuals, the harm to groups on the scale of populations, not specific individuals.

They oppose trans-ing children.

they believe that there are also “trans” children under 18 who may actually be better off being given puberty blockers and medicalised in order to find peace with themselves.

This doesn't compute. Obviously transing children should be a crime and perps should get the chair. If the "good transsexuals" believe some children will grow up with a desire to surgically modify their bodies as adults and we shouldn't ban that -- I happen to agree. Put in place the same safeguards as exist for non-trans human sterilization. True, it will still be an undesirable outcome, but there are better causes to fight for.

that is, they acknowledge that they have not actually changed sex.

They fulfil stereotypical ideas of what men and women should really be

This doesn't compute either. If they believe they haven't changed sex, then Buck Angel (for example) doesn't fulfil a stereotypical idea of what a woman should be, she (ahem) bucks it.

The transsexuals appear to be helping. Be speaking up, they make it known that rapists and chomos don't speak for all transes, and the politicians who have taken up the trans cause and are unlikely to budge on that first order of business should maybe take their heads out of their asses and look around once in a while. At the very least, this is a civilizational challenge and none of us know how to solve it, so it's be unethical to tell the transsexuals to shut up and stop trying to help.

This is exemplified in a case involving a man, from Virginia who, while arrested after viewing lolicon at a public library computer, asserted that he had quit collecting real child pornography and switched to lolicon

Lol, taking a chomo at his word. Also, this is extortion. In a democratic society, you don't extort people by threatening to commit crimes against children. Chomos get the bullet needle.

A growing conclusion from the research evidence is that pornography does not lead to violence against women.

We already know this is garbage. Look up "we can't consent to this", look up all the idiotic initiatives to teach children "enjoyable" sex and counteract the influence of violent porn.

What are some good counter-arguments to the "if rape porn in animation, drawings and literature gets banned, the rate of rape might increase" argument?

The trans cult online both the male and female sides, is largely anime-driven. They do take their fetish outside and force it on people.

People who can not separate fiction from reality have some issues. Rape porn in animations, drawings and literature should not be taken away from the people that can separate fiction from reality

No, we limit people's access to potentially dangerous things all the time on the basis that a tiny minority can't handle them and would cause great social harm. Wannabe rapists don't get special pleading.

You can not ban rape porn in animation, drawings, and literature on the basis that

I literally don't care. We live in a culture where everyone who watches rape porn is a wannabe rapist. I'm not interested in catering to wannabe rapists.

It's not real people. It's just pixels. Real people are not harmed in making this

The drawn/animated rape porn is just a fantasy, what's wrong with having a fantasy?

Fuck off, rapist. (The person making the argument, not the OP.) Imagine you're dating someone and he (or she, let's not be sexist) tells you s/he fantasizes about brutally raping and murdering you, let's say the way Gertrude Baniszewski tortured and murdered Sylvia Likens. Still "what's wrong with it", eh?

Rape porn is just a fantasy. Jail is just a room.

In addition to this consideration, laws against pornography raise questions of freedom of speech. violates the freedom of speech and freedom of expression of the people that want to create

Oooooooh fuck off forever, rapist-Alcibiades. You know what violates the freedom of speech and creative expression? The COPYRIGHT LAW. You know how many small commercial projects would flourish if only they could get the (non-exclusive) rights to a major property? Creative expression is already regulated up the wazoo to shape the media landscape as we allegedly want it. Rapists don't get special pleading.

rape porn in animations, drawings and literature have an impact on the real world.

Everything "has an impact". Me walking into a cafeteria with industrial-strength perfume and ruining everyone's appetite because I had a cold "has an impact". A terrorist flooding the aircon with sarin and killing everyone in the building "has an impact".

There's also people who create this type of work to begin with (myself included) as a form of self therapy or an outlet for expression and exploration.

Can real-life rape have an exemption for "self therapy"? Obviously not. Does any real therapeutic technique include "imagine yourself raping someone"? None that I know of. And cut the fancy speak. Put it in plain English, rapist: "I want to express the joy of raping a person", "I want to explore raping a person". This calls for a neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedle.

Please don't enroll asexuals into Oppression Olympics.

Genderism is a subset of identity politics, which says people are discriminated against on the basis of their "identity" rather than physical reality. Including asexuals into the alphabet soup is peak identity politics: unlike LGBs and even many Ts, asexuals are indistinguishable from the general population on the basis of observable reality. No one cares about our "identity" outside of the genderist cult.

You're living like a deep cover infiltrator who would be hanged for treason if found out, which is an actual job people get paid good money for - but you aren't getting paid, you aren't doing it for the Motherland, you're just suffering for no reason, surrounded by enemies who'd tell you getting raped is an opportunity to "open a pathway to erotic joy".

Young lefty work ethic is, "If you pay me minimum wage, I'm only gonna do a shit job." And that's how you stay at minimum wage forever! If you show you can't do good work at a lower level, why would anyone promote you, or want to pay you more? by suckitreddit in MeanwhileOnReddit

Gonna stop you right here:

For example, if you wanted to choose someone to be manager, who would you pick? The employee that is lazy, and creates problems, or the one that works hard, and does his best even at a minimum wage?

An outsider. The stats have been out for quite some time. People don't get promoted. When a vacancy opens up, employers overwhelmingly choose to hire a new worker rather than promote. Wagies stay in cages.

I have 9 garage kits (unpainted, unassembled character figurines) sitting in the post office right now. Bought them way back in March, then covid hit and I waited for airmail to resume operating. So did the forwarder; it hasn't, to this day, and they announced it's either Surface or storage fees. A month and a half and they're here.

Question for Lesbians by BiHorror in LGBDropTheT

When did these "he/him" lesbians start popping up?

Different country (Russia) but we had a lot of masculine [grammatical] gendered women in the noughts, the reason being Russian first and second person are gendered in the past tense, and women who thus revealed their sex were considered (cough cough rule 4) thirsty for negative sexual attention from males. They were still majority straight, but less so than the general public. This mostly went away even before genderism, as home internet use became widespread.

This one, too.

Some choice quotes about that case:

One victim saw images of Watts without her disguise. Watts initially claimed the picture was her cousin and then claimed it was Jake trying out women’s clothing. When a victim asked Watts why Jake’s bedroom was pink, she said it used to be a female relative’s room.

"When the police told me Jake was in fact called Gemma I thought this was not really real."

"It’s been life-changing for all of the victims involved. They believed they were in a relationship with a young teenage boy, to then find out this was actually a female."

"They have been completely taken in by Gemma Watts. They all believed they were in a relationship with a male."

"I think there will be further victims, who were in a relationship with Watts, who will now realise she is a woman."

This from the judge:

"None of them would have consented to sexual activity with you." (One victim was 16, legal to have sex with a 21-year-old.)

Also the judge, from the Evening Standard:

"she (the 16-year-old) felt physically sick when she found out you were a girl. She too has had suicidal thoughts."

Everyone involved (the victims, the law enforcement) is horrified by her lying about her sex, not her age. Everyone understands lying about one's sex negates consent. They're almost ignoring she's also a pedo.

And yet say the magical word trans, and sexual assault is suddenly ok.

Married straight man puts on lipstick, dress, and fake boobs and tries to get his wife to have "lesbian sex" with him. Fetish gradually consumes his life, and she's horrified. by gendercritfem in itsafetish

What's surprising? Both situations prioritize the bad partner over the decent partner.

The homosexual partner comes out because he/she wants to divorce or cheat: he/she is the one breaking up the relationship, and the spouse is expected to be nice during the breakup. The trans partner comes out because he/she wants the spouse to submit to his/her fetish, and the spouse is expected to submit.

The "this never happens" crew is in full force saying that the killer is unrealistic and transphobic but when I read the synopsis, I got an Ed Gein/Buffalo Bill vibe. What are your thoughts?

"They're the same picture."

Why are most coders, and programmers so bad at design? WHY?! You wanna know why? Because they're arrogant. They don't think the ability to design is a skill. So, they don't learn. It's like coders/programmers can build a car, but they make the steering wheel a triangle, and the seat is too high. by suckitreddit in programming

  • The man-hours for good design are not in the budget. You get what's easy to implement with the framework they're using.

  • They don't use the software, they aren't in the target audience for the software and will never be, possibly because the majority of people who use the software have room temperature IQ.

  • They're doing it on purpose: to keep you "engaged" for longer, to trick you into making bad decisions, to prevent you from using your data effectively, to prevent others (competitors, "bad" actors) from using your data effectively.

21, working a shitty job 5 months till graduation. Best person ever. We had nothing in common. I had Ash from the Evil Dead in my cubicle. She despised violence in entertainment, even against acceptable targets such as demons, zombies, etc. Didn't play vidya at all (that was before smartphones). I thought, eh, whatever. Straight couples compromise somehow, why can't I? Then, after a night shift, her dad gave her a lift home and I saw his car. God what a car, my parents' house was worth less. I had to quit soon after to focus on my thesis and and ghosted her.

GC: Legal “sex change“, Is there room for compromise? by peakingatthemoment in GCdebatesQT

I sympathize to an extent, but this is the life you chose. I view passing non-creepy trans people as body modification enthusiasts. You may be a good person, you may be beautiful, but you're still the sex you are. Some people naturally look like the opposite sex or less like the platonic ideal of their own sex, some invest effort into temporary changes in appearance, others' changes are more permanent, and everyone changes with the passage of time. A man who has cosmetic surgery to look like a cat isn't a cat, a man who has cosmetic surgery to look like a woman isn't a woman, and a man who naturally looks like a woman isn't a woman either. Everyone can be judged or discriminated or even harassed because of their appearance and fashion choices.

What is "trans", anyway? Is an elegant crossdresser enough of a woman? A failed crossdresser? A victim of plastic quackery who nearly died but will never pass? What if you pass with a wig but don't pass without one? What if you pass at 20 but not at 40?

Mental distress is a separate issue; even then, no other type of mental distress is accommodated to the extent that the gender movement wants to have "gender dysphoria" accommodated.

I believe in democratic solutions and democratic societies. I believe that laws should reflect society and that laws should be internally consistent and complementary. If you feel unsafe going about your life dressed in a certain way, the police should help. If they don't, you appeal to the society to reform and retrain the police. You should NOT expect to carve out a legally enforced exceptional right to pee with the women because that very same society is incapable of legally enforcing your existing right to safely pee with the men.

Pronouns and names wouldn't be an issue if not for the current state of affairs. To refer to a male by female pronouns will be understood by the public as supporting genderism. To refer to a male by a traditionally female name (even if it's his legal name) can disguise the fact that he's male and can be interpreted as supporting genderism. I'd rather be "rude", especially because the "victim" is most likely a creep. (I feel bad about names, but it's the lesser of two evils right now.)
