Which leads me to the biggest debate in the history of 2016. I don't like the idea of same sex bathrooms. Like stalls next to stalls. Urinals next to stalls. And I don't like the idea of transgender people taking part in the olympics as whatever they identify as. Can't wait to get the load of shit thrown at me here. "You're close minded, we should all be equal, it's not fair, they are treated unfairly, you're an intolerant and insensitive dickwad, and other nonsense."
(Continued from above, since it cut off)....general population, but nowhere near the statistic that you wrote. And yes, many suffer from mental disorders like Depression, mostly due to societal pressures and external insults rather than an innate anomalous psyche. If anything, that should make our society want to protect and help the transgender population rather than further denigrate them. I can go on, but I think I've already written too much as it is, and I have to go. Please consider performing a serious introspection about your attitudes as you continue to grow and mature.
@religionisforsheep Why are you always so angry? Are you that fucking ugly because you cant get any dick? See your parents raised you teal good. You gonna grow up to be one of them self loathing crack whore low life that your parents are..
Oh goodness do I see transphobic comments here? Anyone who does not believe being transgender is genetic and most certainly real needs to educate themselves on the matter in order to prevent insulting and emotionally damaging individuals who are undeserving of that treatment. If you do not even try to do so, you clearly don't care about others' mental health and should reevaluate your values.
I love how much more understanding people are getting about this kind of stuff, it's great. Like when I first got on this app, nobody ever talked about trans people or acknowledged their existence, but here we're all getting together and talking about it
You know what sucks? Having to scurry around in 2016 trying not to offend somebody. Now it has become a sin to create a poll asking whether you are a male or female. Now it is a wound to the heart to refer to someone who looks male or female or sounds like a male or a female by sir or ma'am. Stop making things so god damn complicated. You are a dude or a chick. If you were born a male and have a sex change and look like a female, so be it. You are now referred to as a female. There should be no other titles.
Scientifically, you don't get to choose. Socially, you do. Your decision to refer to yourself as whatever has no affect on me in the long run. It's not going to make me lose sleep at night. But my opinion (low and behold, we have those!) is totally against all these new and made up titles. Like wtf being being both genders? Really? Oh man.
@ThatOneGuy Yes, it is a beautiful thing. But there are still major glitches. Like when the app still randomly shuts down if I click on some editing options or if I try to post a picture on a poll. Yeesh. There's not many people on here. How hard is it to fix? Gosh I'm not privileged enough. I'm going to complain for the remainder of my time on earth.
But like I said, it really doesn't affect me nor is it any of my business. But since we are on the topic... Also, thanks for welcoming me back. It's been far too long. Has anything actually happened since I left? Has it been more peaceful? I'm excited to start lighting some trigger flames. I've learned a lot from my absence.
Oh! My bad. I do kind of agree with you there. Everyone keeps "coming out" when plenty of them seem confused or are just trying to fit in since this is "in" right now. Genderfluidity does exist but so many people are apparently that.
What? When did I ever say that, Miranda? I am trans* and only say they have the body of whatever since it's true. The brain's gender identity is different than the body's and I'm no moronic butthole...
I'm perfectly aware of the whole gender identity nonsense. It's confusing as fuck. But it ain't my business. 😗 I'm gonna stay off of that. Because people will not like what I have to say. People are far too sensitive. And that's why we have safe spaces.
Instead of blaming others for being rightfully upset, watch the way you word things and try to make life easier for those who have it the worst. If it isn't that big of a deal to you and it is to them, change what you say because you don't care and you (should) want them to be happy.
@AnonymousToAnExtent Okay? Well that makes you a terrible person and the fact that you're okay with that isn't edgy or cool or something that doesn't matter. You're the one who needs a smack in the face, not America.
I genuinely don't care if I offend people. We've established this. And your long and elaborate speeches aren't going to change my opinion. I don't hate transgender people. I don't hate gay or lesbian or bisexual or all 387392 other new genders and identities out there. But what I do hate is overly sensitive social justice warriors are bite your jugular if you have a different opinion. Get over it.
Oh and just to rile you up because I know how passionate you are on the subject... ;) And everyone else here who is a crazy Trans advocate 😘 25% of trannys are schizophrenic. That's so much higher than the rest of the population. Almost all of them suffer from 1 or more of 15 distinct disssociative disorders. And they often go back to being unhappy with their gender 8 years of less after switching. They have psychological issues. And their issues are now being ignored in favor of "acceptance" and "tolerance". I saw an interview on Louder With Crowder with an ex-tranny who actually spent much of his life helping people with gender identity issues cope with them and overcome their mental disorder https://youtu.be/v7NYWd7p-zE
@AnonymousToAnExtent And there goes my attempt not to have the last word for once lmao
So okay but like...why is having mental disorders now an insult? If anything people should be kinder to and more understanding of trans people because of this? Don't talk trash on people with mental health issues, that's fucked up. Especially when a lot of their mental health issues are caused by the way society treats and views them and you are contributing to that (and apparently you're contributing to stigmas about mental health also so that's fantastic).
And so many people are using autism as an insult. But whatever Notorious said, I don't know but thinking you are a different gender than what society believes doesn't make you mentally ill. It makes you human. Those with real mental problems rarely believe they are anything but the gender they actually are (aside from maybe some kind of other animal). Chicky, you may seem to be a genius sometimes but you have so much about this to learn and it makes me feel bad for you. If you say this to the right people, they are going to make sure you get your ass handed to you and I don't want that happening.
And did you even watch the video? There's a psychologist who was once transgender and cut his Willy wonker off trying to help people and figure out what triggered them to become transgender? Or want to be transgender because you can't actually change your sex. It's not just about your feelings. Nothing is just about your feelings. There's science behind all of these things. But nobody likes to listen because it hurts.
I'm literally doing a project on transgender studies for my ap psychology class lmao
There's a new theory that while you're in the womb you get flooded with hormones, and trans people get flooded with those hormones twice. There's brain studies on transgender people showing that their brains more closely resemble those of their identity than of their biological sex (males and females have slightly differently proportioned brain structures).
And that sounds like a load of fun to be learning. I'm taking AP psychology next year. I think how humans work is interesting and sometimes even complicated. Also, Not your avg. Calvin, nobody said you don't exist. Wtf? You're just spewing offended feels at this point. Lol
What? No I'm not. I meant non-binary and transgender people, not me specifically and that was a question for in general, not with this conversation aka what you are talking about. You have no idea how many people discredit my gender or say it is possible for people to not be only female or male from birth but I'm not one of them because of stuff 😝
True but when someone says I'm offended when I'm not or they are majorly wrong about me, I must state my two cents. You're perfectly fine. I only have a problem with what you said earlier but it's been cleared up and we moved on. But you are correct. Breasts are nice, ey? 😉
Anonymous, I think you are confusing a person's biological sex with gender, which are different concepts. While a person's sex does fall into either male or female (or intersex in rare cases), a person's gender identity does not necessarily fall within the binary of male/female. There are other gender identities, such as bigender, gender neutral, androgynous, etc...
Just because you don't understand it doesn't make it nonsense. And no one is saying "fuck you for not including the other genders you bigoted piece of shit" to the person who wrote this question, we just want to kindly inform them that there's more than 2 genders, so I don't understand the frustration around this.
And it's not being too sensitive to get upset about people disregarding your identity. Sure, it seems small to us, but when you're constantly reminded multiple times every day by the way people phrase things/act around you/etc. that people look down on you, forget you exist, or tell you you're faking it when it's really them who just don't understand and don't notice the little things they do that really hit you where it hurts, you're going to get very frustrated and eventually blow up, sometimes over little things like this. So please do not get upset over people who are trans if they do get really upset over things that may seem insignificant to you, because to them it's the last drop of water that finally causes the dam to break. In other words, if a trans person does say "fuck you for not including the other genders...", try to be understanding of them instead of making them more upset because everyone's emotions are valid and they are made uncomfortable (and often worse) by others almost every moment of every day of their lives.
@👑MirandaKnowsWhat'sUp👑. I just don't understand it. Everyone was made male or female. That's it. I don't get the craziness of it all. If someone thinks in their mind they are the opposite sex they were born as then they need serious help. It wasn't an "accident" that someone is born a certain gender. I'm tired of this crap.
You guys are so quick to jump on somebody just because they throw facts at you. Like the good 'ol leftists you are. I never said people with mental health issues are fucking psychos who need to be executed. I have a friend with schizophrenia. I never once said that I would never sit down to have a cup of coffee with a transgender person. I won't throw a transgender person out of my restaurant for identifying as however they want. Wtf are you guys going on about?
Then you should be well aware of what I'm saying. It's not an evil thing to be transgender. But it is pretty amusing to see people lose their shit over it when you say something they don't like or agree with. Like most transgender people are mentally ill. It's not natural to want to change your sex. And most people observed by this psychologist who was a transgender for 5 years flat all can identify what caused their wanting to change.
Anonymous, I can't even begin to describe how wrong you are in terms of offensive commentary and mindset, as well as outright complete misinformation. If I didn't "know" you better, I would totally describe you as an absolute TROLL right now. I can't go into much detail nitpicking all your comments due to lack of time, but in general, I get the overwhelming sense that you really need to become much more informed before you go on offensive rants about things that you don't understand. If you don't know about transgender individuals, that is no reason to dismiss them completely as insignificant or worthless or crazy. I am disappointed that this stance and these comments are coming from you, someone whom I regarded as a person that prided herself in informing others on this app rather than spreading misinformation. There are two things, however, that I do want to comment on: One, please, if it does not make any difference to you (and even if it does), refrain yourself from referring to transgender individuals as "trannies". That is an incredibly offensive term to the transgender community. And two, I can guarantee you that what you said about 25% of transgenders being schizophrenic is completely inaccurate. They do have a higher incidence of schizophrenia than the general population, but nowhere near the statistic that you wrote. And yes, many suffer from mental disorders like Depression, mostly due to societal pressures and external insults rather than an innate anomalous psyche. If anything, that should make our society want to protect and help the transgender population rather than further denigrate them. I can go on, but I think I've already written too much as it is, and I have to go. Please consider performing a serious introspection about your attitudes as you continue to grow and mature.
@CalvnKlein I think you mean suicide not schizophrenia and you're right sadly. It's really a horrible thing to feel that way, to feel like an alien in your own body to the point of hating it vehemently.
@LegoSteve😂 Don't even reply to her, she's totally retarded and she hates everyone because she has a poor little lonely life. Everyone on the french side of the app make fun of her. And of course, you guys and our spanish fellas are welcome even if it's a french app :)
