    I understand that some women don’t want to be called female when they are not cisgendered.

    I just don’t understand why a cisgendered person would have a problem being referred to as such, unless they were unsure if they were cis, or were bothered by the topic of gender identity as a whole.

    If its the former, than I can understand, but if its the latter, then that’s a you problem, and I don’t care if you are offended being called cis.

    Do you find all the other labels that can be used to describe yourself offensive, or just this one?

    Like are you offended by being called a human or homo sapien? Are you offended by being described by your skin color or race? Sexual preference? I just find it weird to single out the one label for no apparent reason.

    How would you suggest we describe people that aren’t trans or non-binary in a way that wouldn’t offend you for whatever reason? As uncomfortable as it may be for you, gender identity is a thing, and the rest of the world is going to use that word to describe people. It would probably be best for you to just get over it.










  • There’s a lot to criticize about the dems and Bidens administration, that’s for certain. One thing we can say is that even though it hasn’t been the best ally to LGBTQ+ community as it could be, the alternative is an enemy and great threat to all marginalized people. Trump will most definitely work to ban any sort of gender affirming care.

    The DNC deserves criticism for sure, and I completely agree with calling out it’s bullshit. They need to do better and/or we need better options, for sure. They should be our most conservative party in an ideal world.

    Criticize, loudly even, just please don’t throw away your vote. I’m afraid people’s apathy is going to get an actual enemy elected.



  • I don’t think that case is a good comparison to a bunch of leftists taking up arms against the state. That was protestor on protestor violence and involved two people. Had nothing to do with a bunch of Americans standing up to a tyrranical government at once. The Marshall’s response was disgusting, but that’s to be expected with someone like Trump holding the reins.

    Some better examples would be MOVE in Philadelphia who got bombed, and the black panthers in California who got the Republican led government to make laws against the second amendment. Still, I think these groups were too small, we just need more people.

    You do bring up a good point, but we haven’t really tried, yet. It might be different when the feds are actually against a large group, but they will never be deterred by smaller groups. The problem is actually getting enough people to care enough. People are very attached to their bread and circuses, and I understand. The revolution would not be an enjoyable struggle.





  • You are very right, and I feel your pain. I’m not judging you for feeling that way, at all.

    I just don’t think that abstaining from voting is going to work in favor of fixing this issue. If anything we need to keep voting to keep the country as left as it can be for now, until we can shift the two parties we are forced to pick from farther to the left.
