DMAB and DFAB is just a fancier way of saying biologically male or biologically female. I’m trans and I think it’s stupid and just “lets change this and make it more complicated than it needs to be because I don’t like it.”
This got way off topic I don’t know why I even tired.
“I would attempt to show them that it’s something that doesn’t matter because looks aren’t important.”
It’s not looks it’s your brain demanding hromones at a level your body can’t produce and being fucking adressed as who you fucking are!
“Beyond finding the person corrupting his/her mind and kicking their ass.” No one corrupted me.
“I’d also have a sit down with the kid and get them to laugh at how silly the idea is (like you do when a kid falls down and gets hurt).”
“All that being considered, I’d have to say “no” to your question above. *I wouldn’t let my child go through any of those treatments.”
Trans people are the most likely group to commit suicide or at least attempt and it’s usually because of their parents abusing them by trying to make them something their not. Go ahead and contribute to that with that behavior I bet you’ll think differently if your child ended up like Leelah.
Children are supposed to live carefree lives, void of any gender politics nonsense.”
It’s not gender politics or feminism or any of that shit! Being trans is a MEDICAL CONDITION.
And you would be denying your child medical care because you think it’s politics.
I knew when I was 4 so you obviously don’t understand transgender people and you do have a problem with them when you think they need to be reformed. Knowing at the ages 3-5 is common for trans people but go ahead and speak for an entire group you are obviously not a part of and hold dislike for. My parents NEVER treated me like a boy they gave me dresses and I was treated like a female at those ages. But no because you an expert say so my actual experiences never happened
“What I find really sad, is that the girl in the video above. despite having the “appearance” of being a boy, she will never have what truly makes you a “boy”.”
sounds like “Your gender is what’s between your legs not your ears deal with it.”
“It’ll be next to impossible to find a loving relationship, due to the complications there in.”
Yes Lana Wachowski is not married to a wife that loves her and doesn’t have a brother who defends her and loves her. Also she’s not a successful director at all she’s completely unloved because you say so.
And because you said it’s impossible for me to be loved my parents must not love me enough to buy me prosthetics and binders and to get me therapy and medical treatment and call me by my chosen name and to call me he. So I don’t exist to you because I am loved.
Fist thing that came to mind
I’m sorry this just really bothers me because the kid may actually be trans and I wish SO MUCH that I had expressed my feelings early on instead of buried them because it’s something you should take care of early on in life. Because the longer you wait the more time you’re going to be miserable.
Also estrogen does not make your voice completely girly after testosterone has lowered it so its ideal for trans girls to get the medical treatment early on.
Yeah that’s basically what I thought and the belittling remarks are only going to help the “GG IS TRANSPHOBIC BECAUSE ONE DUDE WROTE A THING.” thoughts of dumb people.
The help trans people get is hormone replacement therapy and for some, reassignment surgery. That’s the only “help” there is. Any other “help” would be conversion and that does nothing but hurt people.
I mean. “prey the gay away” has caused people to mutilate themselves.
The surgery and HRT is to alleviate an almost constant anxiety an almost constant disconnect, the crushing feeling when you’re called “Girl” when every fiber of your being says otherwise, it’s almost impossible to get out of bed some days.
If your child was experiencing this wouldn’t you want to get them the proper treatment that works?
Well technically gender dysphoria is an illness and transition is the only treatment so…
Are you sure it’s surgery or HRT?
I was about to post about this but you beat me to it. So here’s the archived version
I honestly didn’t read the whole thing because the line "We’re calling her “she” in this article to be polite." Made me so uncomfortable, especially when the article seemed like it was just bashing her. It’s very childish and I think it’s only going to give Wu more fuel and be more “evidence” that GamerGate is “transphobic” The whole thing seems unnecessary.
I thought I just had a bias about it because I’m FtM. I’m glad I’m not the only one.
Did anyone else find the article that Milo wrote bashing Wu to be cringe worthy or was it just me?
Actually it’s about equality between the genders.
Actually you have that backwards. I’m FtM and I have a brain of a guy and it’s demanding testosterone that my body can’t produce in the right quantities. My body is female but my brain developed and is hard wired as male. That’s where dysphora comes from and that’s why people transition. So their body matches their brain. If you were a guy and your brain was masculine there would be no reason to transition.
I haven’t even visited the page because I didn’t want to give it hits.
With the recent mass exodus of TGWTG contributors due to unprofessionalism with the higher ups (Lupa getting fired for being away from her computer for 15 minuets) I’m now positive the rape joke had nothing to do with it.
Actually… To my knowledge though I could have misheard this (My dad worked on the movie.) The show was going to happen either way. Paramount wanted a movie though.
That’s when it died for me.
Yes and he apologized for it. Even said something along the lines of “My illness is not an excuse” That was cool (because I also suffer from Bipolar disorder). My initial reason why I drifted away from him was that behavior in the first place but his explanation was good. I later just lost interest in his stuff that wasn’t counter monkey and now I don’t watch him at all. His whole “Your opinion on movies is wrong.” attitude he had with fans was what put me off of him personally more than the twitter drama.
I guess I shouldn’t have added Spoony to this because it was really me just slowly losing interest in his content now that I think about it.
Though he did join in on the initial dickishness. Still I doubt he’s posted anything like that since. I don’t know I haven’t checked his twitter.
I’m sorry if this seems confusing and disjointed It’s 3:30AM and I’m tired and out of it.
Holy shit I’m Luke Skywalker!
God I’m reading his tweets and he’s being such a massive bully.
Yeah. I pretty much only watch Nostalgia Critic and The Cinema Snob now. And this is why. Though I never really cared for Todd’s videos. I did like Lindsay’s videos but she sat there and looked like she was encouraging this shit.
And I quit watching Spoony because he was doing similar shit to this on twitter a looooooong time ago.
It would still be necessary because of body dysphoria.
