I don't really agree with the "there's more than two genders" notion either ffs It's like, I think people are mixing up gender roles with actual gender, and most of the so called "third gender" people have no gender dysphoria and are using it as an "accessory" to say, ""look at me, look at me!!! I'm not super girly! therefore i must not be a girl!"" which is bullshit. to me it's kind of an insult to actual trans people when ppl who don't have dysphoria put on an "iM TRANS GUISE" costume. it's like the concept of "tomboy" has become obsolete. and don't get me started on those fake "transbois" who seem to only be that way to emulate yaoi and "bishonen" animanga shit.
i don't get why the sjw type people think bisexuality is bad. yes, we have some heterosexual attraction. we're still part of the lgbtq circle. last i checked, made up shit like 'demisexuality' is validated according to them, bisexuality shouldn't be any less validated. i don't really understand the game of 'exclude the hetero' here perpetuated by extremely radicalist whiners, usually teenagers identifying with identities that don't really exist. like bi people aren't even heterosexual, stfu. that, and maybe it's just me, but there really ain't that much bisexual representation in media. when people do see bisexuality they tend to subvert it as being more gay regardless. i'm not even one for "Muh representation", it's just an observation. there was this screenshot or post once i found wherein a guy on a tv show talked about bisexuality when his male and female friend asked whether he was straight or gay, and he said 'did you ever consider that i'm bisexual?' but i don't remember the show, nor have i watched it. that accurately describes things. people want us to be more 'gay' or more 'straight', and idek why anyone doesn't consider the fact that while there tends to be a biiit of a leniency bi people can be fairly equalized in their attraction to both genders. like i'd say i'm attracted to men a little more, but women almost the same amount.
fakebois and people who aren't trans but pretend to be ""trans"" when not attempting to pass as trans at all showing no signs of gender dysphoria really piss me off i still enjoy peppering my sentences with cuss words, i don't think they're that obscene anymore the majority of language policing rly pisses me off in the context of shit like "you can't say stupid because it's ableist" or "you can't say retarded either" as a mentally ill person neither of those things offend me at all.
that's actually a really messed up hypothesis, but indeed a possibility. Even if she wasn't necessarily abused sexually she could've been abused in some way, period. Abuse affects someone's behavior significantly and they often take on traits to try and curb the effects of the abuse and the trauma, often by imitating the abuser or falling back on something else. Even if she is seemingly a "spoilt sheltered little rich girl" it's not beyond the realm of plausibility that she may've been victimized at one point. Obviously that doesn't excuse what she does now but it could be an explanation as to why she's adapted nasty behavior As someone who had to deal with 10+ yrs of crap personally (although it wasn't CSA) it's common that survivors of abuse begin to act out or shrink back into a corner, sometimes both in attempt to suppress their trauma.
the problem is that people are forgetting that gender roles don't equal gender itself and that gender roles are fluid, gender itself isn't. It's like, for most people, gender is biological not social, identity is social but it differs from actual gender and sexuality, you know? While one is determined by interests the other is more or less determined by brain augmentation. Trans people do exist, but they more often are uncomfortable with their genitals, same with intersex people, and those people often transition to male or female. the whole idea of "gender is a choice" completely defies the "it's not a choice" intention of original lgbt activists who're probably looking at this whole thing very bitterly seeing their work be unraveled by stupid teens who view gender & sexuality as being the new "emo"
I'd like lolcow more if I could actually read their layout more easily Like holy shit that 4chan esque layout has never done any favors for site readability part of me rly wants to post a thread about Luna Slater but I'm not sure if PULL has one or not yet, she's rly fuckin flaky at times, but also very sad.
Guys. I've said it once and ill say it again. Don't like using first person "they". Seems like I'm dehumanizing. I feel like she's kinda flakey with this whole "nonconformation" thing and I don't wanna validate that. Bish blocked me from her YT videos because I pointed out that it seemed like she was transtrending and not actually trans. That's not telling enough of how she sees gender? Every sociopolitical related video I've seen of her gets gradually more sjw-y and her reaction to any negative comments, ala blocking? It's very telling to me at least that she sees this as a TREND. Not an actual identity. A LABEL, a TREND. imo first person "they" sounds dodgy as f in normal convo and I usually won't use it unless I'm in a situation where say, I'm in a car, someone is driving recklessly & I can't see the gender of the driver. that's not where someone specifically requests pronouns like a flake. once people stray into the "validate me NOW or I'll fuckin' ban you/not be your friend" territory or otherwise, I'm done. i had a girlfriend who forcibly fell pray to the "nonbinarism" trend and it did nothing but ruin her life. I used to be like that, and it did nothing but ruin mine. I think she has body dysmorphia possibly related to an eating disorder, not gender dysphoria. I don't believe in "nonbinary", or rather, I just don't care for whiny parts who ask me to use "special" pronouns. Guess what? Call me an insensitive bitch. I don't appeal to that level of entitlement. Edit: eep the amount of hate from the "gender is a social construct"" people is beginning to stack up i tried to pretend to accept "fluid" concepts of gender, years ago, and I can't. I denounce it. Gender roles are social, gender itself isn't. people are mixing up the two. Also due to my personal experience (aforementioned friend and other self proclaimed "nonbinary" friends treating me like garbage) all i see with first person "they" and "nonbinary" beggars is usually attention seeking as well.
