Everyone post about hot peppers all day every day until the study is over.
"illegal hormones". This is clearly an attempt to break up social bonds and information in order to make us more dependent on gatekeepers again. Can’t have us having communities and support now can we.
wow.. fuck the feds and fuck facebook!
UGH SPREAD THIS INFO.
This is what adding those gender options was for by the way. The way they’re finding trans women on facebook is by checking for people who have that option selected. Sooo in my case since I selected woman they’d have a harder time of finding me.
OH GOD I JUST DEFEATED LEVEL 133 OF CANDY CRUSH AND I’VE BEEN STUCK ON IT SINCE LIKE A COUPLE WEEKS BEFORE THAT DREAM THINGY HAPPENED
That has been a thing going around tumblr though. There’s a fad of doing animal pronouns, like dogself or catself. It’s really pretty dumb. That was probably just someone that sees all that drama.
Yeah. I mean to me, it’s like so they want to say their gender is a purple dragon who cares? That just tells us who the assholes are.
I just really hate this attitude of since some people will be dicks about it, you can’t have what you need. I also don’t like how the Facebook system requires I put my gender as something other than male or female before it will allow me the gender neutral pronoun.
I haven’t played Pengle in so long that it reset itself.
Why do people keep inviting me to makeup parties?
I am allergic to makeup. Stop inviting me to these things.
I couldn’t ask about queer clubs at the Aberdeen applicants day because my mum was there, so if anybody knows about any lgbt+ societies etc at Aberdeen university I’d be glad of some direction? Pretty confident I’m going to meet my conditions so going to Aberdeen is almost a guarantee & I don’t want to not have anywhere to meet other queer ppl?? Anyway if anyone knows about such gatherings I would be glad of a rec or two
connoririshwright said: They did it that way so cis people who are assholes couldn't abuse it and put in vampire or potato and mock people for whom this is important. The down side is there is only so many they could pick. I'd recommend sending an email or tweeting saying thank you but could you add pansexual on the next update. Best I can think of! sorry!
If someone wants to put that their gender is a green martian with six penises I don’t care. I will gladly take all the assine gender statuses for the ability to have my own gender represented
Also, pansexual is not a gender, it’s a sexuality.
I don’t know when I was told, maybe I always knew because of doctor’s and neurologist’s appointments, but I’ve always known I was an emergency cesarean section. I always knew that I was losing oxygen during labor to my brain and that the brain damage was significant. About the time I began to understand what death was was about the time I realized that oxygen deprivation = had it persisted, I would have died.
So, I began to question if I should have died. If maybe living had been a mistake. I had a lot of social and emotional problems. I felt disconnected from the people around me. I didn’t understand emotions of others. I felt like an alien because I had compulsions that I couldn’t fight. When I went to school, everything only got worse because the children told me what a freak I was, and the teachers didn’t do anything to stop it (this was during the let them fight it out for themselves phase of bullying theory).
So, you know, Facebook giving us only 50 gender options despite having the technology to make it as customizable as a profile name field, and finding out I’m gender identity 51 is like another part of my life that sends me back to the question I’ve been asking myself since I was at most two-years-old, “Was I not meant to exist?”
Which I know sounds overly dramatic, but I mean that’s my knee-jerk subconscious reaction to think like this. I’m once again the outlier. Once again, I’m not common enough to deserve respect. Once again, I don’t exist in the eyes of people who have some kind of power.
I mean I can’t even access the “wish them a happy birthday” option unless I choose a gender that I’m not. So I’m still stuck with female, which is sort of kind of true but a lie, but not quite as big of a lie as say genderfluid, which is like saying “other” but not using the word other. I don’t want to select that because it sounds like something it’s not and it sounds like something I’m not.
I just want to put “gender neutral, female” because frankly, that’s the best way to describe what I am and it’s a term that makes me feel comfortable in my gender identity. I want to hack my breasts off and keep my vagina and answer to all pronouns and wear all types of clothing. That’s what I’ve always wanted and it’s been a struggle to accept that part of my own identity because whenever I say anything like that I’m met with lectures from everybody.
I’m not quite “female” but I’m not a fucking catchall term either. I’m not.
But why can’t my gender be as customizable as my name field? I mean yes it’s more inclusive this way but I’m kind of left holding the bag. It’s like how I had to fight to use boys skates in gym class because the girls shakes didn’t fit the width of my feet unless I went up two skate sizes. It’s like how if I ever said “I have trouble reading this can I have it on white paper? I’ll pay for the copy” I got told no because the yellow or purple or red or whatever paper the teacher had printed the whatever on was supposed to “facilitate learning” and I “was lying” and “trying to create problems.”
Why does this always happen to me? I don’t understand.
I mean all I wanted to put was “gender neutral female” because that’s the best way to describe my gender, but it’s not an option. I’m not 100% gender neutral, but I’m not 100% female either.
Can you just skip it? Or tick a box saying that you’d rather not say?
Oh I’m already marked as female from the old system, but if you choose female you’re not allowed to choose ‘wish them a happy birthday,” so I would have to choose bi-gender or gender-fluid because gender neutral female isn’t an option, which is a more accurate representation of my gender preferences. So, I either have to pick something that I don’t identify as to get to the gender neutral birthday wishes or I continue on as usual, which I’ve decided to do because I don’t want to mislable myself.
But I don’t want to put gender-fluid or bi-gender. That’s not accurate.
