That doesn't mean I sit idly by and let it happen to others.

What have you done lately?

Other than argue on video game forums.

well personally I have been wracked with terrible medical problems which is why the only thing I can really do is post on forums

I'm sick of being shamed for being born the way I am.

you aren't though? I never said that you were incapable of empathy, just that the majority of people saying "don't be offended" are usually straight, white, and male, because they don't have the context someone black might, or someone gay might; but they might be really fat or really skinny, or be atheist in a rural area, or be autistic, or whatever.

No, he in fact is in the context of this thread. You, purposefully or not, frame your problem with the other side, first and foremost, in the context of their race, gender, and sexual orientation. That is in fact the first words you write, with one of them capitalized so as to point to how you specifically are different (and given the way you framed the faults, inherently better by not being straight).

You want to talk about how it is the experiences to non-whites with racism, etc, speak of those social experiences specifically. If you think throwing out the terms "white", "male", and "straight" offers any comprehensive yet also nuanced representation of the root of the problems, then you are a fool.

I thought we all knew that already

@EquitasInvictus: I think so, I've seen that used in other places (though I can't remember them)

you are probably right but nothing to do about it now! I was also just waking up from 4 hours of sleep and had a terrible stomach ache (not that it excuses it but ya know)

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

Your loss then!

I never even beat blood money so whatevs (gonna get back to it eventually)

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
