Note that the opinions of tumblr do not reflect those of the world at large.
As these posts use abbreviations and phrases lacking context, I will translate.
Person 1 accuses cisgender people (people whose sex at birth matches their gender) of misrepresenting what gender identity disorder is (namely, associating oneself with a gender that is not their sex at birth). The point is meandering and not really directed at anyone except an imaginary audience.
Person 2 says there is no such thing as gender identity disorder, inadvertently proving Person 1’s point. "He or she goes on to say transgender persons choose to act differently.
Person 3 responds that, much like anxieties and other commonly accepted psychoses, gender identity disorder is real and needs to be recognized. He or she then accuses Person 2 of being an idiot.
Person 4 agrees with Person 3, but doesn’t really explain the difference between sex and gender. The difference, according to the psychological community, is the former is measure of one’s genes (and as a result, their genitalia) while latter is the societal role a person takes on (in western civilization, either a man or woman).
Person 5 concludes that all transgender persons are either lying or insane. This contradicts the consensus of the World Health Organization and the Social Science Dictionary, the leading psychological references.
In short, nobody was really civil, but some were less than others. Hopefully this will clear things up.
There’s a difference between mocking a government and mocking a nation’s people.
Ow the strawman.
Ditto confirmed for Uber.
Read the article, please.
This is what redpills actually believe.
I think it’s time we acknowledge Teen Titans Go isn’t as bad as our first impressions suggested.
Don’t you know it’s much easier to laugh at absurd extremists than to acknowledge actual societal issues and resolve to fix them? This site and others have made a science out if it.
You claim ad hominem, yet suggest I be fed to lions for my views. Interesting perspective.
That said, nobody was saying humans are unintelligent, as the comic opposes. Rather, the commenters are saying that if such a large number of people would openly and honestly mock a rape victim, that would mean an equally large amount of people may be considered immoral or depraved. With that in mind, it is easy to imagine the human race is morally lacking and full of despicable specimens.
But don’t take my word for it, just consult the handy karma tracker next to your comment, and see how many people believe you and your little comic have anything to do with this discussion.
My faith in humanity drops when people think xkcd is relevant or insightful.
Note: don’t do this, or you are no better than the self-titled Prince of Lies.
Distressingly enough, I first discovered this picture on a fetish site.
Dear kids: please don’t kill yourselves and then yourepeat.com
You try stealing the bike of the world’s flyweight champion on a daily basis and tell me you won’t get some exercise out of it.

It’s a hoax, meant to be funny but not factual. “Fappy the dolphin” should have tipped everyone off.
Geometry and trigonometry is what puts satellites in space, the same satellites that provide you with cell phone reception and GPS coordinates. So yes, it’s important to learn those.
When the fundamentalist, white-nationalist shitposter calls you out, you know you’ve fucked up.
