What a Girl Says: "I’m really a man on the inside." "I identify as male." "I’m a guy." "I’m FtM."
What a Girl Means: "I am desperate to escape the gender role I was socialized into and this is the only escape route I know of."
Lady youve got your own problems and im reppin hardcore for you, but the phase youre addressing is not actually a thing that happens in the minds of transgender people, binary or otherwise, and your world view is limited to the point of delusion. your feminism is hateful spineless and backwards. God bless you and all lady but what the heck is your damage
Someone hold my earrings. I’m in the Glee tag and someone just referred to Unique as ‘it’. I’m gonna smack someone.
Hope this is allowed, but I’ve actually got a 3-in-1
1) I don’t understand why people refer to themselves as “Trans”. The whole point of being a “Trans” is to be the opposite gender of what you are now. If you’re FtM, say you’re a “Male” now. If you’re MtF, say you’re a “Female”. There’s no reason to call yourself a “Trans/etc” other than to gather attention to yourself. Also, if you haven’t undergone any treatment/surgery, you’re definitely not “Trans”. And “Aspiring Trans”, maybe, but definitely not the real deal.
2) I’m also confused over the whole “special pronouns” business. All this “ze, zhe, zhey, oi vey” stuff is a load of bupkis. The whole world shouldn’t have to conform and adhere to your made up titles just so you can feel special. Everyone on this site seems to think “Oh I’m so conflicted on what I feel and what I am and who I like and I’m so different from everyone else” while failing to realize that there are many, many, MANY more people on this site who feel the exact same way! And that’s just on this website. Go out into the world and you’ll find even more! Stop trying to validate yourselves with a fabricated vocabulary and realize that it’s not a bad thing to just be one or the other. A “he” or a “she”. If you can’t even figure that out, just go by what’s on your birth certificate! Or consult a doctor for the answer!(And stop getting mad at people for not getting it or calling you the “wrong” pronoun.)
3) People need to learn to take an opposing opinion. And to take it less personally. Even now I can imagine people commenting on this, insulting and cursing at me (Which, by the way, is a great method to validate whatever point you’re making), calling me “Hateful” or a “bigot” while simultaneously being hateful towards me in a vicious train of hypocrisy. Having a different viewpoint or thinking that something someone does is wrong is not the same thing as “hating” them. I have, do, and will continue to meet people match the people I described above, but would never treat them any differently than anyone else, or show them disdain (And no, I don’t want a cookie for that). Of course my opinion will be the same, but that doesn’t affect how I treat someone. Same applies here. A lot of people will dislike what I’ve said, but that doesn’t warrant more hate. The world is a big place, and there are a lot of people out there. People who will say and do far worse things that I ever could. And if you can’t handle a simple opinion posted anonymously on a blog, how can you expect to hold up out in the real world?
I dunno, just some (probably poorly organized) thoughts. Hopefuly I’ll be able to see lots of respectful disagreements/discussions in the comments, as opposed to flat out hate comments.
"Also, if you haven’t undergone any treatment/surgery, you’re definitely not ‘Trans’” - That’s not how it works. Some people are trans* but choose not to get surgery and you shouldn’t say they’re any less trans* for it. That’s very hurtful.
People aren’t “making up” pronouns so they can feel “special”. They’re using pronouns that they feel FIT them. It’s not about feeling “special”, it’s about finding what FITS you.
And as for your 3rd thing: There’s this post on here that says “I’ll respect your opinion as long as your opinion respects my existence” and I feel like it fits here because it doesn’t sound like you’re respecting trans* people’s existence…
Welp. Never buying Jelly Belly Again.
i really liked thosse jelly beans…
why are people so sensitive about labels on this site like sorry i called you a girl when you identify as a cisgendered transsexual transgendered transiberian orchestra chicken homo girl male
Maybe because it’s… I don’t know… their whole life/who they really are as a person?
I’m just thinking here, but maybe, possibly, you should call people what they want to be called and not complain about it or else you look like a huge jerk? You know, just a thought.
1) racist Halloween costume
2) continuously transphobic in his radio show
3) Rihanna shirt
4) blackface in his “Beauty And A Beat” parody video
5) racist appropriation in Breakfast Show promo video
6) more blackface and appropriation (he RT’d that tweet)
Would you feel the same way if I said that gay people don’t need representation in the media because they’re not normal? I’m guessing that if I said that, instead of “ugh, exactly” you’d probably be mentally punching me.
But if you agree that neither gay people NOR trans* people should be in the media because “they’re not normal”, then I’M mentally punching YOU.
He’s very transphobic and uses transmisogynistic slurs. If you care to read:
