The better question is why it matters. If you are going to have sex with her, she’ll tell you. If you are her doctor, she’ll tell you. Otherwise, if you see a woman, treat her like a woman. Don’t try and guess if she’s trans or not because it’s as important in how you treat her as whether or not she has a predisposition for colon cancer.
A wild raven perches himself on the fence of a human’s farm and squawks for help because he has three porcupine quills stuck in the side of his face. The kind humans who find him attempt to take the quills out, but not without some “lip” from the raven.
It looks young to me, maybe in its first year. and I’d bet ANYTHING that there’s only one reason that a raven would end up with its face near the back end of a porcupine… Damn tail pulling corvids! Well, it’s learned its lesson now. Smart critter getting help from humans. You can tell he knows what they’re doing, it hurts and he complains loudly but he doesn’t fly away or defend himself. Corvids are so smart it blows my mind.
He’s definitely a juvenile - the inside of his mouth is still pink.
When people talk about “cumulative culture” and corvids passing down knowledge to their young, this is what they mean. It could very well be that another bird in the flock has had positive contact with humans, even this particular human, as their facial recognition skills are remarkable.
Clever baby not only knew how to ask for help, but also understood that the acute pain he was feeling was going to benefit him in the end.
This is exactly how I act whenever I need a doctor for anything that involves needles.
If you are an adult on the receiving end of sexual attention from a minor, the only appropriate response is a firm, non-negotiable “no.” Not an “I would, but the darn law…” not, “maybe when you’re eighteen,” a “no.” It is your job as the adult to be responsible, and to not abuse the power differential between you. What the minor wants is irrelevant to your obligations. The only appropriate response is “no.”
the fact this has to be said….is sad
Okay. I am not a trans person. I do not 100% understand what dysphoria is like. However, this still needs to be said.
If you deny a trans person their pronouns because “grammar” or just because you don’t want to change your speaking habits. FUCK YOU. With an acid-coated cactus. Trans people wanting their pronouns respected is not some fucking trivial thing. It’s directly linked to their identity and the core of who they are, and you would deny them even that. It can be a serious fucking trigger that can render someone suicidal.
And if you say that rather than modifying your actions, someone should be locked up for being triggered, you have a complete and total lack of empathy. You are saying that trans people are a burden on society, that they’re crazy people who need to be kept away from others for their own good. You would condemn them to a fate of isolation and misery just so that you can say absolutely anything you want without any regard to the consequences it has to others. It’s not only selfish, but exceptionally cruel.
So you know what. Fuck your claims of proper language, fuck your defense of your habits that you blatantly don’t care who they hurt. A trans man is not a she. A trans woman is not a he. A gender neutral trans person is most certainly not a fucking IT. Treat people like people, with basic respect. Or you shouldn’t be surprised when no one respects you.
I am not a trans person, and I cannot truly speak to what it is like to be one. But I can speak for basic compassion. Have some, or do not expect others to put up with your destructive behavior.
You can take the most respectful, sensitive people, give them Cards Against Humanity, and in a few minutes they’ll be laughing about genocide.
"bisexual women are not more accepted than gay men and lesbians, they’re more sexualized. and that is a huge difference.”
~Stevie Boebi (aka SassiBoB) from the YouTube video “Bisexuals are GREEDY WHORES”: Lesbians hate on and discriminate against Bisexual Women. Cut it out.
Whatever size/shape you are.. you fucking own that shit.
