Here’s my take on the gender issue: If you’re transgender, fine. If you’re gender-fluid, fine. Hell, you can identify as a goddamn Apache helicopter; I don’t give a shjt. It’s not my place to tell you how to live your life.
All I ask is that you don’t jump down people’s throats because they “misgender” you. If you look like a boy, expect to be called “him,” and so on.
TLDR: Identify as whatever you want; just don’t get pissy if someone assumes your gender.
Sorry for the long post. Have a potato. 🥔
@Scott Sterling, Since I was basically called „it“ in school for no apparent reason... i don‘t really care how people call me anymore
Just fvcking take it.
@efil ym kcvF, Pennywise.
@Scott Sterling, fvcking right man. That's exactly how I see it. The whole gender fluid thing has nothing to do with me and I can't tell people how to live so Fvck it whatever you know? But as soon as you start forcing me to see things your way, that's where I draw the line.
@Scott Sterling, yay, potatoes! I shall now give you some mead for the drunk so you can finish your quest. (🍺obtained)
@Scott Sterling, I all seriousness tho, I completely agree.
@Scott Sterling, my thoughts exactly
@Scott Sterling, all hail mighty potato!
@Scott Sterling, it should only be you’re allowed to get mad when they’re obviously doing it to be a jerk. Politely state it if they get it incorrect, and expect them to mess up occasionally.
@Scott Sterling, I️ would like to add...if a doctor asks you your sex, they do not care about how you identify. They want to know if you are XX or XY so they can properly diagnose you. Tell your doctors the truth when they ask you things, they are just trying to help.
@Scott Sterling, as a chronic ranter, I can't help but chuckle when I see "sorry for the long post" after like one paragraph. My "sorry for the long post" tends to be after two or three maximum character comments.
In any event, I completely agree. Whatever someone believes or feels like is none of my business. I draw the line at how these types of people want to compel other peoples behaviours. I will (like the vast majority of people) address others based on their appearance. If they appear male I may address them as sir, dude, or mister. If they appear female I might use pronouns like miss, or ma'am. If I'm unsure, I'll usually avoid pronouns at all, using things like "hey" to get their attention.
If a respected friend of mine began transitioning, out of respect I'd use their preferred pronoun even if they don't pass yet. But if a random dude on the street that isn't even slightly feminine gets mad at me for somehow not knowing that they identify as female in spite of no outward...
indication, that not my problem.
I will similarly refuse to use made up pronouns. I'm not going to call anyone 'zir' or 'hir'. It's ridiculous and has no basis in medicine, biology, science, or even language.
If this is cause for offence, I have a simple answer: don't be friends with me. There's no rule out there that says you have to associate with everyone.
The term misgendering only really makes sense if someone is clearly doing it on purpose to be mean.
Sorry for my long post. 😋
As interest, here are four potatoes. 🥔🥔🥔🥔
@Scott Sterling, and just go to the bathroom at home
@Scott Sterling, dress for the sexual identity you want, is what you're saying. I can't wait to see all those choppers
@Scott Sterling, Oooo free potatoes?
@Scott Sterling, the man/woman/apache helicopter the myth the legend! Well said my friend. I dont care how people live their lives or how they want to be identified. You people do you cause we all respect whatever the situation is. Now all of them need to shut up and leave me alone
@TheButterCutter, I can’t wait to go to my job interview dressed as an Apache attack helicopter!
@I Are Lebo, I’ve only seen ‘hir and shi’ used in hermaphroditism
Darn my gay right arm always getting me in trouble “Kevin Spacey”
@Thone09, this is perfect
@Thone09, why doesn’t Kevin Spacey ever win races?
He likes to come in a little behind!
@Thone09, I’m sure a lawyer Can and will use that defense for Kevin
The real tragedy here is that this filth is in an actual textbook.
Anyone else notice that the textbook is in German
@DOCTORx1963, who knew Germany would be so progressive and accepting.
@PBnJ, actually pre hitler Berlin was one of the gayest places in earth
@DOCTORx1963, I did
@PBnJ, the court can not force you to confirm a gender.
From 2018 there are 3 gender for the passport, in germany
Since now there are only male, female and not specified
@DOCTORx1963, that is post war Germany for you! Not German at all!

I know people who would pay good money to be blue head pink body
Unpopular comment of the day, transgenderism is a mental disorder or more specifically a dissociative disorder wherein the mind does not associate itself with its correct biology
That's his masturbation arm duh!
I feel like this is a really poor way to discuss gender because it equates it with the body instead of mental states, which feeds the misconception that when people discuss gender they are also discussing biological sex
Anybody else reminded of the twins from American Mary?
His palm really is named Rosie
Is that a book about mental health?
@CynicalSir, no, it's like the "manifesto of Feminism"
You can see the Definition of "patriarchy" in there and from what I can read it says something about oppression of women.
That's the only not gay way to masturbate.
So if you finger a girl with your left arm its lesbian
Being a chronic masturbator doesn’t mean that one of your arms is transgender, Jesus Christ people.
Man, using my left hand actually feels like the real thing!
