If you make trans a separate gender I’ll probably ignore everything you ever have to say about gender again
everyone sucks and everyone can die
For anyone who thinks that trans interpretations of ambiguous or even “canon cisgender” characters have too much support and discussion, here we have evidence showing how little support there is for outright stated canon trans characters. As in confirmed both explicitly in the story and explicitly by the author. Basically as much proof as you could possibly get, and still only 32% support.
So yes tell me how the trans headcanon brigade has gone to far
In a study of three heterosexual couples talking in their homes, Pamela Fishman (1983) argues that women do most of the “shitwork” in conversation. In other words, they are more actively engaged in making sure that conversational interaction is successful. For example:
- Women asked two and a half times as many questions
-Women used more back-channeling to express interest; men used more minimal turns
-Women introduced more than half the topics but most of their topics failed; men’s topics were picked up and discussed in almost all cases.

the fact that people think wearing makeup is a form of lying constantly amazes me like unless you’re a nudist and don’t use deodorant you really can’t talk
What I was saying was that the body part matters to the lesbian/gay man who doesn't want to date someone with a penis/vagina. It's not transphobia, it's sexual attraction. Not gender, sexual. And we can agree those are two different things, right? Because if we can't, then trans people wouldn't even exist, because sex and gender would be the same thing. But it's not. So the body part matters to others, because as a lesbian, I wouldn't date a girl with a penis. Because I hate dick. Simple as that
You’re missing the point here.
People can have personal preferences, but if their body parts aren’t supposed to determine their gender, why the heck would you put it as part of a system that was looking for attraction between genders
because what you’re saying is basically encouraging the idea that transgender people need a big flashing sign to keep them from mixing with the “normal folk”
I think a better solution in the hypothetical situation than “requiring trans people to wear identification outing themselves” would be different bracelets for the seeking parties if genitals are a super important huge deal to them???? Because there does not necessarily need to be a correlation between “I am attracted to men” and “I prefer to sleep with people who have penises.” (I mean for my part I’ve often thought, “gosh girls are so pretty but i really like the D” so a message like “I am looking for these specific genitals pls” could definitely be useful)
I mean that still has flaws because it seems to open the field up to a whole lot of unexamined bigotry in the guise of “that’s just my preference!!!1” and possible fetishizing of trans people but ffs I put about twenty seconds of thought into this and it’s better than this “trans people are DECIEVING potential lovers” rhetoric
