Isn’t that question normally asked with the intention of learning what they did that is wort caring about?
I’m really confused why everyone and everything relative to sexuality and gender has to be a pissing contest of who is the least privileged. Like what good does that do to hyper-prioritize one group over another? Be allowed to shit on another, less victimized group?
Shouldn’t we work toward promoting behaviors that treat people equally and don’t assume anything about them? If we want an equal world, behave like there is an equal world. Don’t split hairs.
Realizing something you said was really lame right after saying it
Is there a card that gives you life points every time you use a trap card? Because this could become a dangerous combination.
When adults tell me Internet Friends aren’t real friends I get sad.
This is partially due to being far less limited on who you can befriend in real life, and the limited ability to express yourself in person. Communication is clunky in person. Over text, your feelings can come off as more simplified and easier to read. It is also easier to care when you don’t actively need to pay attention to a conversation, since the chat doesn’t disappear. There are reasons why these situations happen, and it is something that I really hope we can fix for younger generations.
the love affair between truscum and terfs heats up
I have absolutely no idea who Andrea James is and I doubt she’s truscum.
Cathy Brennan is an asshole and I really really doubt that truscum have ever defended her. You can’t just presume that every trans person who does something you disagree with is truscum. That’s stupid as well as a blatant mistruth.
I don’t even know how to respond to this.
Like, you say you have no idea what I’m talking about and then go on to claim I’m wrong. This might be the most ridiculous comment I’ve seen on one of my posts since I was told I was fetishising myself.
Rest assured I have my reasons for calling Andrea James truscum. We could have had a discussion about those reasons, and about what “truscum” is used to mean.
But discussion requires both parties to be informed, and you don’t seem to be willing to even Google the name “Andrea James”, so.
I claimed you were wrong to claim that she was truscum considering she would have to self ID as truscum and believe the initial statement that transsexualism is a medical condition and that sex dysphoria is needed to call yourself trans.
In the quick google I’ve done, I can’t find a single mention of her either saying that or calling herself a trans medicalist or truscum.
Hah! I give absolutely zero fucks about your trashy section of tumblr that has decided to use “truscum” as a self-identifier. To me it’s nothing but an insult to be spat at those traitors who try to police who is and who isn’t legitimately trans. That was its origin and I reject your ridiculous attempt to reclaim it. If that offends you, good. You’re a hate group and I have no intention of respecting your definitions.
And now I start blocking people, lest I am forced to endure self-identified scum defending their “honour”
Alright so you’re wrong and you resort to this, I’m not surprised. We’re not a hate group and to compare us to one is insulting as fuck.
If I may chime in, on the initial concern, Andrea James is likely no more aligned with truscum or trans-medicalism than Laverne Cox or any other notable trans-person: we are likely to assume they believe in bodily dysphoria as a requirement, because they themselves went through a transition. The only important difference is that while Andrea James may or may not be truscum, Cathy Brennan is proven to be “trans-critical”, and thus is without a complete doubt a threat to trans individuals. Perhaps that is where the attention should be.
Something that I feel genderspatial is aware of, but BeautifulOutlier may not be, is that gender is not a simple concept. There are many differing perspectives on how gender functions, and what is important is to not disregard the opinions of others solely because you think you entirely grasp their position based on a few words. Truscum is making a come back as a reclaimed term, and is heavily misunderstood when it is defined as poorly as “policing who is and is not trans”. That definition fails to describe what factors they are “policing” by, and when actually defining it appropriately as “believing bodily dysphoria is the primary requirement for being transgender” you not only convey the correct idea of their beliefs, but you do it respectfully, rather than blatantly insulting them. If I read this discussion without knowing either parties, I would see genderspatial as far more well meaning and calm, while reading BeautifulOutlier as dismissive and rude. I doubt that is intended, but that is a problem with phrasing.

Wat are u doin
Is this real life?
Probably not, but let’s laugh at it anyway.
This hurt to read.
"put tampons in their butts"
What the fuck is wrong with people who post things like this. And look at the tags. Such a fucking idiot all around.
One day I’ll just throw computer through a window, I swear
im still crying over the truscum who said it pronouns are transphobic cause “it” is a noun
it is a noun which denotes an inanimate object
congratulations you’re using a term which has been used to dehumanize trans people and promote violence against them for years.
Kindly shut your computer down and lay in bed for a while.
Not to pick a fight, but wouldn’t an additional qualifier need to added there? Because we call babies and some animals “it” when we’re unsure of their sex, wouldn’t another qualifier be relative to consciousness and awareness? Or simply be limited to a non-person, assuming personhood isn’t granted to an infant until they become a toddler?
[I like to discuss how people use terms and spent a third of a philosophy class discussing abortion and where personhood starts, so this is genuinely fascinating material for me.]
