I don’t know why, but transsexuals make for awful explainers.
It’s just “OMG YOU OFFENDED ME I WANT YOU TO APPOLOGIZE RIGHT NOW.”
“Wait, what did I do?”
“YOU ARE SO IGNORANT. I AM CREYING NOW, I WANT YOU TO DIE”
Then they call a bunch of their friends and you have to chop them down Dynasty Warriors style.
They react off of impulse more than reason.
If I ever meet a transsexual that didn’t have to resort to “trigger warnings” and all types of other manic depressive ass bullshit to put up frequent barriers around their life and then try to pass their already fucked up condition based on the people around them instead of trying to get some serious help from a professional instead of letting their “internet friends” that have no life experience and spend most of their time in the same boat as them, I would actually like them.
Because they are a person, and not some shell that resorts to cries of personal pain and suffering when they don’t get what they want.
We all don’t get what we want, that’s life, and if you don’t like life, death is the only option.
Minus 50 points for transsexuals.
Permanent hate for you.
I don’t mean to come off as some kind of white knight here (for myself? FUCKING PARADOXES) but it seems like you’re describing an attitude held by a lot of Internet People, not the general state of most transpeople. Some of these people are minorities, some aren’t.
This seems like a shitty way of dealing with things, but I suppose not everybody has the privilege of developing a perfectly rational and constructive coping mechanism. This isn’t to say I don’t think these people shouldn’t try to seek help and/or a more constructive way of dealing, I just don’t quite share your attitude of “permanent hate.” I feel like simply ignoring them and hope they find their own ways (they often aren’t too open to outside suggestions) is a lot simpler, and easier on oneself, than trying to engage them.
What I’m attempting to get at here is that, while this is evidently an attitude that you have come to associate with transsexuals, this behavior neither typifies nor is exclusive to trans-anything individuals. I myself don’t find anything in your list of transsexual traits that I see in myself, nor any of the transpeople that I personally know. Still, if you interpret this as a “resort to cries of personal pain and suffering,” it’s not. I just felt like, on the unlikely chance that zero of the oppositional responses to your post carried a civil tone, I should throw in my two cents while attempting to take on the blandest tone ever.
For the record, yes, I know you said you’re done with/tired of the topic, but I just felt like following up a SBAHJ edit with actual coherent written thought on the subject :y
PS: I was actually typing this up and proofreading it when you posted your handy protip but jumping to conclusions is cool too I guess?
PPS: as for cis-prefix raeg, I don’t see how I’m trying to push that on anyone. It’s just easier to tell my parents, when they ask, that Friend A is cisgendered, than it is to say that “Friend A’s gender identity matches what their physical sex at birth was”
