hasty ambush: stpauler: Good for him her. it.


Spiffy?  How so?  Isn't Obamacare supposed to pay for this sort of thing?

Xir is hardly oppressed compared to xe and really needs to stand down, shut up and learn to be a good ally by letting xe talk when it's time to share lived experiences of TRUE oppression.

Married? If kickstarted, I expect it to remain publicly accessible.

mbillips: What's the difference between a kickstarted vagina and a c*nt punt?


What's the difference between a sex-change doctor and a vegetable thief?

One produces snatches; the other snatches produce.

DNRTFA, but I expect her vagina being pulled for being against the Kickstarter terms of service, especially the "Do not fund your life"-clause.
And if you've ever had your vagina pulled, you know how painful that can be.

quietwalker: TL;DR: If TG was primarily biological, it wouldn't have a cultural bias but it clearly does.


It can be both, given that neurological imaging has revealed that the brains of transgender people are constructed differently to their cisgendered counterparts. I would argue that the cultural biases would alter how transgender people express themselves.

quietwalker: If living as TG/getting surgery is meant to make them happy, why do they still commit suicide at the same rate?


That is something that requires further study - we're still not sure if the societal pressures on transgender people cause that, how much their altered neurology may predispose them to other mental health issues or whether its some combination thereof. Personally, I would be looking more at the societal issues that transgender people face as the major cause of a lot of mental health issues.

Disabled Girlsw: "But... we all love that pony.  Why are you demanding people like us be hidden from sight?"

Yamino:  "YOU PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT!  I KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR YOU PEOPLE!  YOU WILL THANK ME ONE DAY!  I FIGHT FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE!  I AM NEITHER FEMALE NOR DISABLED BUT I CRUSADE FOR BOTH!  YOU WILL THANK ME."

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Maybe that guy in the psych ward who thinks he's Napoleon really is Napolean. It's easier to give him a hat than treat him, so fark it.


This is exactly what is going on with our mental health care system in America right now.  Only we dont really have psych wards any more.  Now we just give Napoleon a sharpie and some cardboard and shove him out onto a street corner for society to deal with.  For the record I really could give two shiats one way or another for anybody wanting to be one thing or another.  I just wish they were polite enough to provide a warning before you end up balls deep in some former man parts that a doctor redecorated.  Too much to ask for though.

And remember fellas, if its got an adams apple....dont put yer peener in it.  Unless yer into that sorta thing.

dfenstrate: Buttknuckle: Good for her.  For those of you who can't put it together and continue to belittle trans people, just think about it.  You feel like the opposite sex SO MUCH that you are willing to have someone cut on your genitals and change them.  It is not a choice, dumbasses!

/not trans and not stupid.

Could be a mental illness that is indulged rather than treated, mostly due to fashionable societal trends.
How many doctors could you find to chop off your arm if you decided you really, really felt like you weren't supposed to have arms? None.
On the other hand, if you say you want to get your dick chopped off because you can't accept reality, well, out come the knives!

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I also don't ask to inspect their genitals before saying "hello sir/ma'am".


That would be a pretty weird alternate universe to wake up in. I'm not saying I wouldn't like it, just that it'd be pretty weird. Might make those business meetings where they go, "Let's go around the table and introduce ourselves" a lot more interesting.

Capo Del Bandito: Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: Subby: using fund-raising site Kickstarter
TFA: using crowdsourcing website YouCaring.com

Conclusion:  Subby can't read.

"kickstart" is in quotes, ergo, subby is using it as a verb.

Modern linguistics: JFGI.


Second conclusion: Capo Del Bandito also can't read.
