Speaking from the viewpoint of a bisexual woman: lesbians shouldn't be pressured into dating bisexual women if they don't want to for the simple reason that anybody has the right to exclude anybody from their dating pool for whatever reason they like. Now, would it hurt if I were interested in a lesbian woman and she turned me down because she didn't want to date bisexuals? Of course it would, as it sucks to be rejected in general, but it's my responsibility as an individual to learn to cope with that rejection and move on. I'm not going to go on social media and talk about how I'm being oppressed like some pathetic incel. If there are some people who don't want to date bi people because they think we're all a bunch of sex-obsessed deviants who can never be faithful then the most important issue here is biphobia in general. Making people see you as romantically/sexually attractive is not a thing that should be focused on when it comes to making people accept you because somebody seeing you as attractive isn't automatically an indication of them respecting you and vice versa. Hell, there are a lot of cases where the complete opposite holds true, like how industries where beauty plays an important role tend to be known for being very exploitative.
Don’t know if it’s too late to offer you some advice but I think the best thing to do is to just straight up tell your professor what happened. Tell her that your team mate hasn’t been submitting any of her work and acts contemptuously whenever asked to actually make an effort even when being asked in a nice manner and that it eventually caused you to snap. Since your friends agree with you, you could also tell the professor to ask them about and let them give their side of their story as that’s likely to boost your credibility.
The people in the screenshots should go date trans women themselves if they're so afraid that trans women might be excluded from the dating pool of others (preferably someone like Alex Drummond or Danielle Muscato as these types of people also like to claim that saying that you're a woman automatically means that you're a woman). @jaybirdAs has already been stated elsewhere, trans "neo" vaginas are vaginas in name only (the same can be said about neo penises). Go look up what they look like, how they are made and some of the many surgical complications that may arise – you can't expect lesbians to be into a surgical wound made out of stomach tissue that needs to be dilated every day in order not to close up and might have hair balls growing inside of it just because somebody says it's a vagina. As a bisexual, I wouldn't touch that with a ten foot pole. Additionally, anybody has the right to exclude people from their dating pool for whatever reason suits their fancy, whether it be because of their sexual orientation or sexual preferences, and it's every person's responsibility to learn to cope with rejection. Shaming women because they don't want to have sex with you is rightfully mocked and called incel behavior when it comes from heterosexual 'cis' male crybabies. Why is it suddenly different when a trans individual says "not dating me is bigoted"?
Trans "neo vaginas" are vaginas in name only. In practice it's just a surgical wound made out of things like stomach tissue and which needs to be dilated every day in order not to close up (and that's the least bad complication that comes with it, a lot of the time it's much worse) and most of the time it looks nothing whatsoever like real female genitalia. The same can be said about trans "neo penises" and how they compare to real penises. Lesbians being into vaginas should not be taken as proof of them being into trans women as long as they are post OP, and the same can be said about people in general – the majority of people aren't into neo genitals regardless of sexual orientation. It's part of the reason why post OP trans people tend to have a hard time finding partners.
My answer is no. The physical advantages people who went through male puberty have are too great and aren't going to disappear just because you get your testosterone levels down to 10 nm/l (the limit which MtF trans athletes have to get their testosterone levels down to in order to be able to compete – which is still an amount at least three times that of what your average woman has! Even women with PCOS don't have that much). Muscle memory, greater lung capacity, greater overall strength and so on – that shit doesn't just go away just because you put on a dress, take some estrogen and say your new name is Rachel. Between 2003 and 2016, the Olympics committee required trans women to get genital surgery if they wanted to compete as women which was enough to scare the absolute majority of male opportunists away, but that criteria has been removed now and many other sports organizations have followed suit which is why there's been a sudden surge of MtF athletes (but the surge of FtM athletes is nowhere as big – gee I wonder why). Speaking of the name Rachel, I'm going to illustrate my point further by talking about a certain athlete named Rachel:
This is 'Rachel' McKinnon, MtF trans cycling athlete and professional misogynist Twitter bully who celebrated a lesbian woman dying of brain cancer because she expressed viewpoints RM didn't like. RM has admitted to only training around 10 hours a week (most cycling athletes train way more than that and it’s pretty much a must if you want to get anywhere), is way past the age where athletes reach their physical peak, is pretty doughy/unfit overall and even has a beer gut. As a 'cis' man, RM would have been a thoroughly mediocre athlete. Yet when competing against women, RM somehow often manages to end up in the top 3 and even win gold medals. What a coincidence, right? And before someone tells me 'but Rachel McKinnon doesn't always win!': not winning gold every time doesn't mean that you don't have an unfair competitive advantage. Because if a fat male loser with a beer gut had tried competing against male professionals in the male category or a fat 'cis' female loser had tried competing against female professionals in the female category, they wouldn't even have been able to dream of getting close to the top, even less winning. But because even many average mediocre male athlete are able to physically outplay many great female athletes because of this little thing called biology, this means that someone like McKinnon who would have been a mediocre athlete as a man 'became' a good athlete when transitioning. Bottom line: if trans women want to compete professionally, they should compete against men or get their own sports category. But they shouldn't be competing against women.
From my experience, the cringy ass weeaboos who just are there because they like anime tend to drop out after the first or second semester once they realize that learning Japanese requires more than just knowing the words kawaii and baka and that you actually need to put some effort into the language. On the other hand, if you're genuinely interested in Japanese and manage to get the hang of the vocabulary, grammar and so on it can be really fun.
It's probably going to be different for you as you're not a native speaker of French but I went to Québec to visit Canadian relatives a few years ago and I encountered no problems despite my accent obviously belonging to someone from Metropolitan France. As for you not being good at the language: as long as you're planning to stay in a major city, you will probably be able to get by. It's better to initiate conversations in French, but if you really don't know how to say something, you probably won't be confronted if you switch to English (especially if you're in Montreal which is a very bilingual city). That being said, if you're planning to stay in the boonies or a smaller city, you're going to have to up your French game Edit: also, as somebody else pointed out Canadian French will probably be harder for you to understand than mainland French on average but it may vary a lot depending on which part of Québec you're in.
For the 38429th time, Jobo wants to remind us that he loves hentai:
Probably for the same reasons Jobo chooses to look like a hobo: they don't give a shit. Also, "hot anime bitches" really? There is nothing wrong with "kink shaming" someone who loudly and proudly shows off their fetishes, especially if they are into disturbing shit like lolis, rape, zoophilia and mindbreak. If anything, sex pests like Jobo need to be shamed more
"The only way to stop [the stalking] was to be quiet with the content", no, what will make people stop "stalking" you is if you get off social media and stop being a complete shitshow both online and in real life
As for the previous Insta stories: no fucking shit Japan is going to have mostly Japanese cuisine and won't have every single other food product from your country or every other country in the world readily available. I'm not able to find most of my favorite French food products where I live, which can suck sometimes but the end of the day you just have to learn how to deal with it. If she doesn't think Kyoto is thuggish enough for a cool "thug" like her she could always take the train to Osaka and try getting one of the yakuza thugs there to hang out with her, but they probably wouldn't be interested in that
This is true. I've been following the whole thing ever since day one of her strike outside the Swedish parliament (it's hard not to because the media won't shut up about her), and the people responsible for this whole mess is not really Greta – it's the parents and other adults around her who use her, plus the people who take their worshipping of her to ridiculous levels. I actually agree with her main message about people needing to listen to scientists when it comes to climate change, but the problem is that few people are actually doing that. (That being said, just because she's still a kid, that doesn't mean that her views shouldn't be allowed to be criticized.)
