Really? People are offended by one piece of incidental dialog in the game? I swear some people just search for things to be offended by so they can parade around and draw attention to themselves.

ITS TRUE YOU FIGURED ME OUT I'M NOT ACTUALLY OFFENDED BY ANYTHING

or wait maybe it was just a terrible thing in a game that I already didn't want to buy and this is reinforcing that decision but HEY

If people were out campaigning to "kill all the cis's" you might have some semblance of a point, but unfortunately you do not.

Die Cis Scum" is a very popular phrase in your commun

and I won't even mention the countless tumblrs dedicated to wishing death upon non-transsexuals.

You're trying to compare a fringe group of 4% of the American population to living your life in a society that doesn't accept your lifestyle? (I'll admit my post is American-centric)

Classy.

that map is even bigger for transsexuals I believe

@Akrid: eh there's plenty of bad blood between the gay and transgender community here in the states; the gay crowd excluded trans people from the ENDA (employer non discrimination act) because it would've been easier to pass (it didn't pass anyway but still).

@CaptStickybeard: they're fucking crazy people, there are plenty of crazy people out there, but I don't blame all of the white race for neo nazi's, and just because one group of people tries to re appropriate a term to demean someone doesn't mean THAT much if that group is a small contingent of an already small group. I think most of those are ironic as well (although that doesn't excuse it).

@sween24: pst guess what I get that too O:

I don't understand the assertion that being a straight white male invalidates my points in a conversation or that being a person in a minority makes that person an expert on minority issues.

it all depends on where you live but most people here live in white majority places (there are places that aren't that in america admittedly but), in male dominant places, and everyone lives in straight majority places (unless you live in a gay village or something). I never said that they couldn't, just that they were less likely to.

@JasonR86: there are so many really really dumb derogatory terms on the wikipedia list

@Animasta: Non-transsexual works fine, but I suppose it doesn't have quite the same slur-like ring to it that the tumblr brand of "feminists" need for their discourse.

trans means on the opposite side of.

cis means on the same side of.

transsexual means you identify as the opposite gender as your sex.

cissexual means you identify as the same gender as your sex.

I'll go edit my post just so people can stop getting caught in details and actually try and consider my post

(THOUGH THEY WONT THEY'LL JUST FIND SOMETHING ELSE)

@Animasta said:

that word is cissexual though! cis is a shortening of that! just like trans is!

By that logic, there's nothing wrong with shortening "Japanese".

...

fair point.

(this is how you refute my point guys, by not being cute about it)

@NyxFe: summoning dirt bags is my super power

The fact that you use "cis" is enough to not take you seriously.

tell me the proper word to use for non transsexuals then.

Maybe this?

@Animasta: "stop-telling-me-to-not-be-offended-please"

"don't be offended by this"

That's how.

I hold no stance on the matter either way, i just wanted to point that out.

I would use a different word if I knew of one that apparently wasn't offensive but I cannot, so...

(also maybe people are just saying they're offended even if they aren't just to fuck with me, it wouldn't be the first time)

@Droop: there was a character in a strip club that said "Oh, I'm a dude!" even though it was a lady model afaik. not the biggest deal in the world to be sure but still offensive to me, and people said I was dumb for being offended which is where this comes from.
