Quote# 139655

No one, no one actually thinks transwomen are women. That's what drives me crazy. Even when I was trans-inclusive I didn't believe that (I wasn't being asked to chant it either, probably would've peak transed me a lot sooner).

NO ONE thinks they are female/women. They think they should be allowed to play pretend, to have everyone else play pretend too, and the cost to actual women is not important.

Other human beings are not your enemy.

@Kanna
Sometimes they are. Like the people responsible for exploiting and trampling on the lower class.

Unless you personally know a trans person transitioning, you're probably never going to know someone is trans. It doesn't affect you, so why do you spend any time thinking about it?

I’m going to confess... I want everybody to be happy, and if your female brain is in a mans body, and you are distressed by ty is, I am 110% supportive of whatever you decide is the best remedy.
I know that trans folks are indeed trapped in the opposite genders body, but... I can’t see myself ever being attracted to a trans woman.

I’m not sure if I can change that. I’m not sure if I should be ashamed or not.

Since last year, more LGBT MPs elected to Parliament than ever.

Britain must make you go completely loony-tunes psychotic, then.

Good.

@Dedmon

See, the error on your part is thinking you would immdiately know if someone you`re dating is trans or not. The real question would be if you only found out once they told you and if then you would drop the attraction or not?. In general it`s completely cool to not be attracted to anyone really, your personal attraction is yours and yours alone.

I don't reckon it matters whether you think transwomen are women or not. If you notice one however, the non-action of not calling them out on it is not "playing pretend". It's what I'd call 'being civil'. Or better yet 'not being a fucking asshole'.

What I do believe is that jelliknight just wants to take it out on someone and transsexuals happen to fit the bill.

@ Churchy LaFemme

I don't personally know them but in retail security I'm (subtly I hope) checking out every single person in the store and my local Sainsbury's has three that I know of (and possibly more where I haven't twigged). As you say however, it doesn't affect me and I don't spend much time thinking about it.

There's a difference between knowing someone is not biologically female vs accepting that they want to be treated and viewed as a woman. I have gender dysphoria myself but don't want to take hormones or have surgery to alter my otherwise healthy body. Thankfully, I have friends who understand this and treat me like a man (exactly the same as they treat each other) even though I am female sexed.

So yeah...if you want to think to yourself (that person is not a male/female) that's fine. Just don't be a fucking asshole and point it out to everyone or call them by the incorrect pronouns.

I think they're women.

Seriously, what does it matter to you if they want to be women or not?

Actually, jelliknight, I do. They are women.
