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.

@Atlas: yeah in a perfect world that's how things would be but it's not, human beings have emotions and feelings and it can be hard to just say "nope, that doesn't offend me!". Humans are not rational beings

@Video_Game_King: dude why would YOU have that option turned on? You post so much that your inbox has gotta be in the 1000's or something. Turned that shit off 5000 posts ago

@Canteu: well im not offended by trans, so how is that hypocritical? It is the dictionary definition.

@CaptStickybeard: masturbatory rants? That's not the word I'd use but FAIR ENOUGH

@Video_Game_King: breathing problems and the such, I'll have to go back to the hospital eventually but don't wanna go unless I really need to (been there twice and they didn't help both times, fuckers)

BUT THAT IS NOT RELEVANT

THE HOSPITAL WILL NOT HEAL MY EMOTIONAL PAIN FROM OFFENSIVE STEREOTYPES

@Canteu: @breton: dude how else do you want me to call them, normal? because THAT's offensive to trans people. cis literally means the opposite of trans and that is literally the dictionary definition of someone who is not trans.

Personally what bothers me is people that get offended and immediately go on the offensive and automatically assumes the offender is racist/misogynistic/homophobic etc... which you certainly fall under at times.

There are ways to tell people that certain words in certain context can be offensive and automatically assuming the worst about a person's character is not the right way.

I haven't done that in a year, I admit that was a problem but I have stopped doing that
