Don't have a whole lot to contribute to this conversation, but just wanted to share this silly little meme that's been going around.

Honestly, I've not seen any trans person or non-binary say that. It's always a cis person, usually thinking they're being hilarious eventhough it's as annoying as "guess it's free" when the barcode don't scan in the cashregister.

Idiots on the internet create caricatures. Every single transgender person I've known has been polite and understanding of any gender/pronoun confusion.

Hey! Speaking of trans people! I feel this would be the most relevant place to post!

On the 18th I'll be six months on hormone replacement therapy and I no longer want to kill myself nor is it a thought that has entered my mind even when I've been at my now lowered emotional peaks. Taking the shot every other Tuesday

Also I'm gay but everyone knew this already whereas I've only shared with a handful of Dromers before I left that I was even trans, does this explain why I look so young in my selfies I'm surprised nobody found out from them alone tbh

A lot of bi people describe their sexuality as "are you hot? i'll **** you" and this is how I describe mine as well but it just so happens the only people I've really found hot are men. I've never considered finding women hot to be an impossibility for me tho so I typically say I'm more of a 5 on that scale

It should be noted in the LGBT community the kinsey scale is the subject of a lot of criticism, but since I don't care I don't know the details as to why LMAO nor do I know if they are valid criticisms or just bs

There's no The One, there's only people you're willing to round up to one.

And:

Every relationship will fail, until one doesn't. (and even that one will end eventually.)
I have to disagree with this. The One for me almost literally showed up on my doorstep. We ran into each other one night at a local hangout about a year after we had graduated high school- he had been dating a friend of mine and a group of us all went to prom together- and a few nights later I came home to find a note on my door. A week after that we went to a pool party and within days he showed up asking to stay at my place when his folks had kicked him out- but by then we had already..... Ahem. I stand by my belief that when the right one comes along, you KNOW.

I actually just saw your pics in the Picture Thread a couple of weeks ago. I mean no offense by this, but I was certain you were a butch lesbian and never gave it another thought.

LMAO

Not offended at all I expected to hear it at some point in my life yet this is the first time it's happened

And most people assume I'm in high school still. I'm turning 26 in two weeks. Weirdly, I didn't used to get carded anywhere until I started HRT but I guess it's because my voice started cracking

I'm confused. You're doing HRT to become a woman, become a man, or because of a hormone deficiency? Something else?

Yeah not sure about the incidentally bit. Like I had an incident of accidentally sleeping with a guy?

I've been more bi but am pretty gay now. Although lately I've mostly liked genderqueer women so I dunno what that means. Hope you can handle that sdp.

lol, context my friend, I told the entire story the first time: saying I'm trans, that I'm attracted to men, I'm gay, and my HRT involves taking shots / my voice cracking........

On the other hand I don't want to assume everyone knows what all those dots necessarily mean. Being transgender in my case isn't a "woman becoming a man" kind of thing it's that I was always one but the treatment is making the physical side of things match what's in the head more closely, causing less of a disconnect that results in a lot of emotional ****ery basically. Affects everyone that experiences it differently.

I described it the way I did originally because I've always been a guy here and that's how I'll hopefully continue to be seen as if nothing was different, but since it was relevant to the discussion and I knew I'd have to give an explanation as to why I disappeared for so long when I came back, that I would say something now. It is basically A Thing that explains some other things that I felt were due an explanation and that's it

Those are not caricatures though, the "alt-left" does exist and it's ugly, dealing with them is like dealing with hardcore Trump fanatics; They just won't listen to reason and facts don't matter. This has become a huge problem becomes you're either one of them or not and this is how it is on both sides. I usually like to stay out of political since no one can ever agree and things get messy but now it seems politics are in everything.

I can handle whatever anyone wants to be, you are free to choose what you want to consider yourself Rooish and I'm glad NetKeeper is happier now and hope to see more posts. What I don't like is getting harassed by people or get called a bigot when I'm a pretty chill dude. It hasn't happened to me in real life but it has online plenty of times and these are things that didn't happen, I know it's tough for you guys out there but yelling at the wrong person over petty things is not helping your cause. Live and let die, I don't understand why people have to hate.

I think Plastron Cafe is just jaded; I would agree that there isn't just one "The One" but you don't just settle with someone either. There really are people who become a part of you and no not all relationships end bad if you choose the correct person. Yes I'm a hopeless romantic but hey it's worked out for me.

If you're being called a bigot online it's likely not because your actions are violent but because you may express the same thoughts that have fuelled violent actions by others in the past, and it is more of something said to get you to wake up and re-examine a thought before it snowballs. Strong words are used on purpose.

EDIT: Hey there, Indigo, I missed you too 8D

If you lived in the UK, you'd probably get that a lot. They're quite insistant about carding people these days. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Challenge_21

Quote:
As of 2011, the four main supermarket chains (Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons), Marks & Spencer, The Co-operative, Bargain Booze and Waitrose all apply the Challenge 25 policy. Some have further rules, such as requiring ID from all members of a group in order to proceed with the sale (leading to adults well over 25 sometimes being refused service when shopping with a younger partner, friend or child). Furthermore, some supermarkets have trialled a policy of asking all alcohol purchasers for ID irrespective of apparent age, which has led to senior citizens as old as 86 being refused service.

Oh, in Vegas they card you if you try to buy spray paint, and adults can't bring children into areas with slot machines even if they're just watching their parents. Those carding policies don't surprise me.

It was just supremely baffling when no-one would ask for my ID when I wanted alcohol.
