Did you just assume which side is your left arm?
@KaijuKoitus, now now. It's probably the arm she fingers herself with
@KaijuKoitus, I laughed way too hard at your comment..
*hands you club*
Hit me with this as hard as you can, don't hold back
XX or XY
@Michael Fassbender, why is that so hard to understand?
@Dephenistrator, mental illness
@Michael Fassbender, those are biological sexes. Those are binary. Genders are fluid and socially constructed.
The misinformation spread through this app about genders is the only thing that I dislike about it.
It's not 1940 anymore, gender is not sex.
@Mr Doctor Professor, genders are not fluid you either have a Y chromosome and are a man, or don't and are a woman. I do not deny that there are hetero-, homo-, and bisexual people. I also except that people have gender dysphoria which is a mental illness that people can get surgeries to fit in with how they feel, but the are still genetically what they were born with. Completely accepting and encouraging gender fluidity is not something that should be as publicized as it is. When I see kids that are prepubescent claiming to be "a trans Demi boy" or something like that I am disgusted by what society and their parents have allowed to happen. These are children who have yet to full psychosexually develop, they do not understand, their reasoning is concrete. Think, if you were able to get a tattoo of the thing you liked most when you were 12, how good of a choice would you have made. Some kids are taking hormones leaving them infertile for life.
@Michael Fassbender, used to be we called little girls that wore jeans and played in dirt tomboys. People like you would call them transgender. These kids usually grow out of it, that was until people started telling them they were something they weren't.
@Michael Fassbender, just an aside. You ever notice how these kids that are labeling themselves 18 different genders are almost all 1) from heavily liberal areas/parents 2) never really interesting or social kids. I've yet to see little billy who scored 2 touchdowns and kissed a girl on the play ground have to claim to be "trans". It's probably because people actually encourage billy for having a real impressive talent so he doesn't need to label himself to feel like a special snowflake
@Michael Fassbender, so you obviously understand what sex is. That's well and good but that is not what determines gender. Gender is entirely physiological having to do with hormones and an individual's environment.
Gender is highly associated with your sex: male or female, yet gender identity is independent of this variable. If someone doesn't fit in mentally with their sex (or gender as you put it) it becomes much more complicated than simply "hetero, homo, and bisexual." Much like how sex does not determine someone's sexuality, gender also is not determined by sexuality either, that again is a completely separate category.
I am going to repeat my previous comment because it still stands true: gender is "SOCIALLY CONSTRUCTED" sex is biologically determined. It is as easy as that.
This is all coming from a straight white male. And while I know a random commenter won't change your mind, I encourage you to take a sociology course.
@Michael Fassbender, and yes, young people changing their bodies is somewhat frightening to think about; however, unlike getting a tattoo, it is very easy for an individual to tell if what they are feeling is genuine or not. Nobody purposefully changes their body unless they are certain that it is what they want to do, and they are well informed by doctors of the risks involved before they do it.
@Mr Doctor Professor, did you ever know a tomboy that became feminine later in life? The thing with young children is they think they're certain but they simply lack the full ability to comprehend what is going on. What kid isn't a hormonal jackass during puberty?
@Mr Doctor Professor, as a kid I genuinely would have gotten something like a call of duty or halo tattoo and thought it was badass but regret it later. I remember wen bronies were a big thing some adults got tattoos of it. I haven't seen very many fans anymore but those tattoos are there forever.
@Mr Doctor Professor, sociology is a useless major, I'm not wasting my time with those classes.
@Michael Fassbender, again: you don't need your a medical doctor's prescription or a psychologist's expert opinion to get a tattoo
@Mr Doctor Professor, gender is not socially constructed, fashion maybe socially constructed, language maybe socially constructed, but gender is not socially constructed.
@Michael Fassbender, also, I'm not asking you to switch your major, I'm asking you to take an elective to become a more understanding human being.
@Michael Fassbender, I have said all I wanted to. See previous comments for rebuttals. You're going in circles.
I truly hope that someday the wonderful people on this app will have theirs eyes opened just a little wider.
Thanks for being respectful in your replies.
@Mr Doctor Professor, take a biology course or even a psychology course. You'll learn about Psychosexual development and how children are incapable of abstract thought. I took the class and learned this, then over summer befriended a little boy who came to the pool I worked at and observed the behaviors of him and his friends. I was taught by one of the leading child developmental psychologists in the world.
@Mr Doctor Professor, I truly hope that one day society will be rid of people that are slowing down human development such as yourself.
@Michael Fassbender, looking at it biologically, animals are born male or female, but you also have to factor in random mutations. Surely you can't ignore that they feel that way because maybe they can't help it?
@NoWay007, I completely understand gender dysphoria/ transgender people. It is a mental illness that can affect anyone anywhere, very similar to depression. Someone that loves in San Francisco that has grown up with LGBT acceptance all around them may be trans, but also someone born in the Deep South can also have the same mental disorder. It's these kids that go online and claim to be a variety of genders and sexualities that simply are made up because these kids have no other interesting label to place on themselves and see it as the easiest way to be accepted by someone with the wide spread support and encouragement. A prepubescent child can't misunderstand their sexuality because a prepubescent child can't understand any sexuality. Make sense?
@Michael Fassbender, I completely understand that. I think like a lot of things this is something that only time will tell what will become of it. The big problem right now is that everyone only hears the loudest voices about that topic. Only time can make sense from what the loudest people are saying and from the truth
@NoWay007, I don't think that giving children the decision to go sterile and drastically alter their hormonal balance is a good thing, I don't think children should be allowed to make many choices. At least their genetic line ends with them when they go sterile
@Michael Fassbender, just curious are you saying all transgender people have gender dysphoria because that claim was proved false in like 2006. I agree with almost all of what you said but there are some people that are different. I mean being gay was classified as a mental illness until 1983 or something
@Michael Fassbender, I must warn you, don't go thinking one group of people's "worth" is less than anyone else's. You can disagree with anyone you want, but the moment you start believing in superiority over someone else is when dangerous times in history arise. I have never heard of children going around saying "I want to be trans" or something like that, and I would agree with you that if there are then that is bad parenting because that should be the last thing on a child's mind. But if they still believe in that when puberty hits and the hormones in their brain and from their environment start to kick in then I think that is the time when the decision will become clear to them and they have the right to make that decision
@Runnin with scissors, There has to be something mentally wrong with someone if they willingly want to induce infertility and surgically change their genitals, it is counter intuitive to evolution (survive and reproduce). The thing with gay guys is they could go have sex with another man, then a woman and still produce an offspring.
@NoWay007, I believe the intelligent who back their opinion with observation and calculation are superior.
@Michael Fassbender, well see the thing is a lot of transgender people don't have any interest in the surgery they just feel they identify with the male or female sexuality more than their current.
@NoWay007, if I have to wait till 21 to be old enough to drink alcohol, 18 to smoke and join the military, because those are important decisions, then a kid shouldn't be allowed to make the transitioning decision until they are at least 18
@NoWay007, it may disgust you as it had me, but look up milo Stewart on YouTube, a monument to the sins of the millennial generation
@Michael Fassbender, well that was annoying. I consider that a loud voice btw. Definitely uneducated and definitely just doing that for attention and fame. You can say that *insert pronoun here* is a product of the millennial generation but we all are products of this generation
@NoWay007, that's a fair last point, I felt like only a few millennials were right wing, conservative, republicans and most were loud, bitching, safe space, socialism wanting, liberal democrats, but look who's our president elect. Guess it's true what they say about the silent majority
@Michael Fassbender, it's more like the ignored minority that won the election for Trump. The blue collared white populace that the democratic party traditionally appeals to but Hillary's campaign foolishly ignored them to Trump's benefit
@NoWay007, well whatever it was America is going to be great again
@Michael Fassbender, Tl;Dr gender is weird
@ThingSeven, TL;DR gender is XX or XY
@Michael Fassbender, Couple points you ought to learn. 1- it actually makes far more sense physically to begin hormone treatment during puberty, otherwise the body gets horribly messed up. Think of it like updating a pc from vista to 10 then deciding you wanna go back to vista and upgrade to win 8 instead. Very bad for the 'hardware' of the human body. That said, the decision has to be definite like you said, kid/teen needs to be in their right mind. 2- Sex is definitely more than XX and XY, factual. Consider hermaphrodites, XXY, and people who have one set but display the opposite set of genitals. I used to think it was XX and XY only but then I found a scientific article that showed genetics are a bish and you can't use them to accurately portray full swaths of the population.
Did you just assume I call that an arm?
@BlackLightning, when it's really a third leg
Okay, gender identity is probably a little flexible, but I'm pretty sure it's not anywhere near that flexible.
@Sybil Reisz, what if they sexually identify as a stretch Armstrong?
@KaijuKoitus, that's okay, as long as they can back it up... privately and consensually, of course.
@Sybil Reisz, your asking for someone to prove their gender? Thats an invasiom of their privacy! If they say they are an Abrhams tank you say "nice treads" or nothing. (For those who flip out wasy, thats sarcasm).
@Oujosh29, that's why I said privately and consensually. That way they don't see it as an invasion of privacy. And since you brought it up, an Abrams tank could also be fun to get consensual with...
@Sybil Reisz, i feel like it's going more towards the idea of percentages, not body parts. like that thing in Lilo & Stitch where Lilo drew a picture of Stitch and coloured in his 'bad level'.
@Ruupasya, see, that makes a lot more sense, and if they had explained that even a little but, that picture would probably a lot less controversial (and hilarious) then most people interpret it as.
@Ruupasya, I kinda lean towards they mean body parts, based on the way the pictures are done.
@Sybil Reisz, I saw that, but if people get triggered over just the gender pronouns, I bet they'll go balistics at suggestion of proving anything.
@Oujosh29, I don't believe you're quite catching my meaning...
@Sybil Reisz, I guess not. However, to make a Funny Pics point of view, I would so identify as an Abrhams tank if I could.
Only my right canine is female, but only on Tuesday, and it is everyone's responsibility to know that or I will be triggered
I don't want to live on this planet anymore
@benderama, lets go to pluto
This shït is why people don't take trans issues seriously.
@I Are Lebo, *some people
Gender dysphoria is a real medical condition that gets marginalized by posts like this. Believe it or not inception isn't always easy and sometimes Y fragments end up on X genes and vice versa. I'm not gender fluid but I do support LGBT rights.
There are two genders, either you have a penis or a vagina, that's it! Simple
Its not gay if youre doing it to yourself -Abraham Lincoln
Sometimes my right arm is my lady...
Now, I respect transgender people as much as any "regular" person, but I feel like there's a lot of people who pretend to be transgender so they can get attention, which hurts the group as a whole.
That's the arm she uses to masturbate
