Oh man, I'm not sure I even want to stick around for this thread.

Too many prior "trans people are mentally ill" and "Trans people are just special snowflakes" comments in similar threads have left me a tad skittish about posting.  I can't afford to keep buying new laptops.

But good on these two for being brave enough to do what many of transgender people cannot:  openly and proudly transition.

I know a trans woman who transitioned relatively late in life. She has adult children. Her kids call her Dad.

I thought we were gaining in this battle, but as the father of a trans daughter, our Con-Man in chief has set us back.

How many extra dicks and ballsacks does this situation create?  And will they be mounted, stuffed, thrown away or donated?

Yes, I was meaning to reference this sketch and blew the reference image:

Henry Blake: [takes out a stack of papers and reads them] Father dying last year. Mother dying last year. Mother AND father dying. Mother, father, and older sister dying. Mother dying and older sister pregnant. Older sister dying and mother pregnant. Younger sister pregnant and older sister dying. Here's an oldie but a goodie: Half of the family dying, other half pregnant.

He was if the next several letters spell 'vestite'.


(Not exactly an executive transvestite. Possibly an action transvestite, though.)

I know it's funny to some of you, but that's not how this works.  That's not how any of this works.

Newsflash:  Not that many trans people have sex-reassignment surgery (especially female to male) for many reasons, mostly personal, financial and because for some of us, we don't want to give up all sexual function and feeling for something cosmetic.

I'm a man.  I have a vagina.  Get over it.

You I like.

My great problem with what is happening is that.... too many people push for body modification.

That is not just a statement about sexuality, either. "We" are too Gotdamned focused on the outside, as a society.

I always wondered why they just didn't Article 15 Klinger for not being in uniform? They could have had him spending every waking non-duty moment scrubbing the undersides of latrines or painting rocks. Instead of just exasperated sighing when ever he walked by.

2017-03-20 05:37:02 PM  
Wow, this family is all sortsa farked up. Good for the Parent for deciding to get trans surgery for themselves, but an absolute POS for parenting. The human brain isn't even close to being developed at age 15, with maturity arriving at 25; the fact that this Parent would permit their kid to start transitioning before the age of 16 is just all sortsa FAIL. Oh, and then Parent goes to the media to put them and their son in the spotlight. WAY TO GO!

Parent, you suck.

The latter, but with any goofy subculture there'll be impressionable young people that take it too seriously.

/There's nothing wrong with being a representative of the dominant majority... but if you use your own lack of challenges to dismiss the experiences of others, you're kind of a dick.

Shame on you. Maybe the child identifies as an adult. And that's all you need to change what you are. And who the hell are you to question an adult's life choices?

Pre-emptive outrage generally comes across as a bit precious. Yes, we all know of the strong biological basis for your transition. Great. Well done. Who cares. That doesn't mean that every teenage girl who is told by her friends that she's too butch to be female should have her transition supported and it doesn't mean that every teenage boy who is told by his friends that he's too soft to be male should have his transition supported.

Short version: some people who claim to be transgender actually are mentally ill. Not everyone with one hand in their coat and a tricorn hat on their head is Napolean.
