Can anyone translate these?
staplermofo: Ungendered pronouns would be great. Un-gendering bathrooms would be nice too. If women peep on men or men hog the couch, it's a small price to pay. I would hog the shiat out of that couch.
ox45tallboy: staplermofo: Ungendered pronouns would be great. Un-gendering bathrooms would be nice too. If women peep on men or men hog the couch, it's a small price to pay. I would hog the shiat out of that couch.Why don't dudes get a couch? What the hell are women doing in the can that necessitates a couch? I want a couch to chill on in the can. I would totally call the restaurant's number on my cell and ask for my waiter and then tell him bring me another beer to the couch in the men's room. Bonus points if it's a waitress. More bonus points if she does it. Negative points if she changes gender first.
Is this something else new:
Yogimus: What ever happened to "Pervert"?
Duke_leto_Atredes: But we can still pick on furies right?
HotWingConspiracy: "We encountered high school students who said, I want you to call me Tractor and use pronouns like zee, zim and zer."
Sybarite: I'd complain to the manageress.
The Southern Logic Company: Please refer to me as Ford F-150 Supercab. My preferred gender pronouns are Ford/Ferd. I am a transautomotivist.
jayhawk88: maudibjr: Why does this have to be so confusing. I'm just going to keep calling everyone dude."Bro" also works really well.[25.media.tumblr.com image 500x243]
Spad31: Wait..wait...you WANT to sit in the shiatter and hang out with other dudes while they piss? And you'd want food and beverages in there? What the fark is wrong with you?
kukukupo: "Young people"This is because they are young and have too much time on their hands. I used to think a lot of stupid shiat like this when I was younger too. When they grow up and get a job (if they can get a job) and move on to the next phase of their life - they will have a different view.
yourmomlovestetris: it's hard to defend the idea that gender is malleable and purely based on one's early socialization.
maudibjr: Why does this have to be so confusing. I'm just going to keep calling everyone dude.
God Is My Co-Pirate: Hey hey hey, the couch is awesome. Leave our couch alone.
ox45tallboy: They're calling for more fluid categories beyond just male and female, as NPR's Margot Adler explains.I'm totally fine with people who were born with a different sexual identity than what matches their naughty bits. It happens sometimes, and these days, there is no reason not to live a happy and fulfilled life wearing the gender in which you feel comfortable, and having sexual relations with whichever consenting adults wish to do so. Having said that, if your gender identity is changing,on a regular basis, perhaps you need to seek professional help. This is not normal or healthy, and other people catering to this whim is not helpful to your mental health.
DrPainMD: FTA: "...a new generation of young people is..."And people still insist that "Idiocracy" wasn't a documentary.
staplermofo: Complaining about the line to get in.
eris523: ok, i have to chime in.i'm one of 'those' people. i'm gender fluid. i float around the spectrum. i enjoy it. i'm not out to correct people, just to make them think for a minute. what they think is of no concern to me, unless they try to actually bash me. i'm very clear that i've chosen to be a social deviant, and i'm happy with that. i decided long ago that its far easier for me to deal with the crap i occasionally get from some people than it is for me to be repressed and unhappy.i understand the point of the exercise. it's intended to break the normalisation of the binary gender construction. unfortunately, it has been attempted over and over, and has yet to succeed. see herei'm not a victim, i'm not angry or complaining, and the only reason i care about pronouns is that i enjoy seeing which ones people choose to use when they meet me. it tells me a little bit about them. if pressed for a pronoun of choice, i'll go with 'it'. i don't find it depersonalising, i find it hilarious because it triggers people.the gender binary is pretty much a recent construct. even in western history, there have been discussions of third genders and more as recently as 100 years ago. look the word epicene up in the oxford english dictionary, and read its history. cultures all over the world have several genders, currently and throughout history.in some ways, this is like the sticker i had on my wheelchair that said 'cripple', and some guy walked up to me and began to lecture me on how "that was a very oppressive word to use for the physically disadvantaged" and that i was being very insensitive. i just listened for a minute, and then threatened to roll over his feet.
Lunchlady: shiat like this is what makes the developing world hate us. We've solved so many actual problems that now we are creating meaningless ones to focus on instead of helping others. Heaven forbid this energy was used on a more useful endeavor like clean drinking water around the world instead of making sure we don't hurt some over-indulged douchebag's feelings.
codergirl42: Age is just a number.
CowardlyLion: It's also an issue for everyone who's ever written a sentence talking about a generic human being and had had to write he, she, he/she, (s)he, or his, hers, his/hers. Holy hell, it would be so nice to not have to either assume the sex of an unknown person or have a pronoun that was gender-neutral while also not dehumanizing a person (as "it" does) or introducing potential confusion (as singular "they" can).
This text is now purple: I say, good, sir, that I fully intend to transplant my brain into a gendered robot body.Indeed, also one built onto the body of a gorilla.For the lulz.
DGS: Rurouni: Kids are young people are dumber than shiat.Quick question: how old are you?

OtherLittleGuy: Really? 230+ posts and I'm the weeners?
ox45tallboy: Why don't dudes get a couch?
Fromageball: The Muthaship: That reminds me of the lady I went to law school with who dressed her son in girls clothes half the time. She took offense when I told her that was the recipe for making a serial killer./he'd be about 23 now//I hope he started with herDid the kid want to dress in girl clothes or did the mom just decide to do it?b/c if the kid wanted it, fine. If the kid didn't want it...wtf?!Sometimes I feel sorry for men with their restrictive dress choices...especially now in the summer when I can get away with wearing pretty much whatever I want(especially since a lot of workplaces are changing their dress codes...it's like as a woman I can wear whatever the hell I want -within reason) but the men are still stuck in their button-downs and trousers.
WhyteRaven74: The insistence on the binary nature of gender is actually pretty much a western hang up. Perhaps you should take the drugs?
IsThatYourFinalAnswer: You're confusing "butch" and "fem" as actual core psych identities. Gender identity is binary. It may not match the genitals you are born with, but it's one or the other. It's a very core component of the human mind.
bbcard1: I still don't know why "herm" hasn't caught on.
Mock26: If we are now required to recognize an individual's preferred gender pronoun then fine, I am selecting mine:You: icky-icky-icky-icky-kapang-zoop-boingHim: yabba-dabba-doodle-doHis: owowowowowowowowowowowowowowow-ooooop-owAnyone who does not respect my gender identification is an evil monster who makes Hitler look like a caring and loving pro-zionist gentleman.
boinkingbill: As long as they have a pretty face, a great body and a good set of coconuts I have no problem porking them up the kazoo.
Jim_Callahan: No, I don't care because I don't care. I grew up with several siblings, some dogs, and a name that's got an ambiguous pronunciation, gender and ethnicity (no, my handle isn't my actual name, I'm not that dumb). I've been called everything from my little sister's name to the dog's name, had my gender reversed on official paperwork repeatedly, and had people pronounce my surname in a manner consistent with a region that my actual ancestors would automatically have murdered and vice-versa.
Bontesla: You don't care because you don't struggle with it. You take it for granted.
IsThatYourFinalAnswer: who just want to be recognized as normal folks.
bighairyguy: If that happened to me at Olive Garden, I'd say: "Your gender pronoun is I didn't come here for a lecture, keeping your farking breadsticks, I'm going next door to Red Lobster. "
IsThatYourFinalAnswer: I always figured trans would be the next "in" thing, but we shot WAY past transgender into this weird world of amorphous constantly shifting nontraditional binary gender declarations.I guess I'm a closed minded transformer...deep down, you're either male, or female. may not match with your body, but your core identity is one or the other.The sad thing, I actually see all this BS reverting trans rights. We're just barely getting to the point where governments don't require surgery to validate gender. I see that going down the drain when some of these whackadoos demand recognition of their asexual third-gender spiritual designation on ID.
Donnchadha: God Is My Co-Pirate: Hey hey hey, the couch is awesome. Leave our couch alone.All in all you're just a-nother brick in the toilet-tank-to-help-us-conserve-water-by-taking-up-space-so-the-toilet -flushes-with-less-waterI think I need to redo the meter on that line...
dahmers love zombie: We encountered high school students who said, I want you to call me Tractor and use pronouns like zee, zim and zerLOL

Crewmannumber6: Yogimus: What ever happened to "Pervert"?I prefer 'Weirdo'
ox45tallboy: DrPainMD: I couldn't agree more, but, since the internet never forgets and I see the direction the forces of political correctness are going, I'm going to have to say, "Stop being such a close-minded, intolerant bigot."There. Now, in twenty years, I will be hailed as a progressive thinker who was ahead of his time, and you will be lumped in with Limbaugh, Beck, Gingrich and Stalin. Won't that be fun?Actually, in his younger days, before the Teddy Roosevelt 'stache, Stalin... well, you be the judge.
Nabb1: And people wonder why we are lagging behind the rest of the industrialized world in science and math education and more and more high tech jobs are headed overseas.
