TIL Arya and Brienne from Game Of Thrones are trans by Rage-Xion in LGBDropTheT

Came here to say that. Martin writes Arya, Brienne, and Asha very clearly as strong women who are confined by gendered expectations. He never pretends they aren’t women and, I think, actually has some good commentary on how those expectations hurt women with these character as well as Sansa and Cersei.

Uh, wouldn’t talking about kink in the workplace be considered sexual harassment? You’re not acknowledging that Dave is married to a man and asking people not to harass him for it. You’re specifically talking about sexual practices without others’ consent or comfort in mind. Which, if every sexual harassment training I’ve ever sat through is to be believed, would be sexual harassment.

On the real, we all have our own issues and I’m fine with giving space to those and expecting to receive it in turn. That being said, we’re unified by being same-sex attracted and firmly believe this is why we should help each other when we can. T can die mad about not having anything to actually do with us.

100 Russians asked how they feel about gay people by julesburm1891 in LGBDropTheT

I too am curious what the responses would be if this was only asked of older people or of people in very rural areas. Because in this urban sampling there seemed to be kind of a generational divide and kind of a gender divide. (Older people and men seemed less on board. Although I absolutely adored the older woman who said she loved everyone.) Maybe those divides get wider the more one moves away from urban areas? Or maybe this really is indicative of how average people feel? I hope he’ll do a video where he goes East and asks the same question.

I speak some Russian and have seen some pretty horrible anti-gay state media. So, it was surprising to see that a lot of regular people don’t share the sentiment. It was a little weird how they only thought of gay men though. It didn’t seem to occur to anyone that women are gay too. (They were definitely using the word for man and masculine pronouns in answers.)

First off, you don’t have to live as a lesbian. You’re choosing to larp as one.

Secondly, even if you were a woman, most lesbians wouldn’t be into you. When you’re in the right pond, most of the other fish aren’t interested.

That date was probably not even a date

Perhaps other women here have had similar experience. I’ve had a whole bunch of encounters where I had a very run-of-the-mill conversation with a guy at a party or a bar and he thought we had some chemistry and I was into him. I’ve also had very normal friend things (e.g. going to get a cup of coffee with a guy) where he thought it was a date and got upset when he realized it wasn’t.

For whatever reason, there seems to be a segment of straight men that can’t read any interaction with women as anything other than romantic interest. It’s like they can’t wrap their heads around that people can talk and be friends. These guys also don’t get that women are socialized to be nice. Just because we listened to your whole boring story about getting into craft beer doesn’t mean we’re interested. We’re just being polite.

OP gives off every indication of being that type of guy. The women hanging out with him are doing this as friends. They think it’s all fine and dandy until he mentions he’s trans. They fucking know he’s trans, but didn’t care because it’s just a friends thing. The second he says that though he’s announced he thinks this is a date. So, now, they have to contend with the whole bruised ego bullshit and accusations of transphobia when they have to let him down. OP is so clueless he doesn’t even understand why they’re being awkward.

A theater in my home city cast a transwoman in a woman’s role for an upcoming production of a pretty popular play. (Sorry. I’m being vague on the details to obfuscate which city.) The guy doesn’t pass. I’ve been hearing whispers from people as more promotional material comes out because everyone is forced to quietly acknowledge a dude is playing a beloved female character. A lot of people won’t say the obvious out loud, but it’s abundantly clear they’re not on board. And this is just looking at the guy on the poster. They haven’t even watched him in stage yet. (It’s going to be a shitshow when the curtain rises, I imagine.)

So, yeah. Please let this be a mainstream film. Let the peaking soar. Because most people aren’t going to look at this creep and be able to pretend he’s a lesbian woman.

Well, this would be easier done if the trans community didn’t decide “No,” “I’m gay,” or “I’m not interested in the opposite sex,” were demeaning statements that attacked trans people.

Okay, if it’s only exhibited by some straight men, then why not just go after the straight guys who aren’t “traditionally masculine?” Just admit you’re either the female version of the creepy straight guy wanting a threesome with two girls or that you don’t see bi men as real men. Either way, pack up your biphobia and go the fuck home.

Let me get this straight, we can’t have a sub because we’re “hateful.” Lesbians who don’t want to be coerced into heterosexual sex can’t have a sub because we’re “hateful.” Women who point out letting any rando guy say he’s a women to gain entry to our spaces is a massive safety issue can’t have a sub because we’re “hateful.” But this bile can have a sub?

Reddit might as well take out a billboard that says “we hate women and LGB people” because it’s getting difficult for them to say it any fucking louder.

Honestly, I don’t really get the point of it. If every single one of the priests and shamans of ye olde times were trans or LGB, it wouldn’t change that there are two sexes. It wouldn’t change that most people are attracted to the opposite sex and a pretty consistent minority are either exclusively same-sex attracted or attracted to both sexes. It wouldn’t change that some people have form of body dysmorphia that makes them want to be the other sex even though there’s no way for them to ever change sex.

I’m also not really interested in a throwback to days when pure superstition reigned and you died of a scraped leg when you were 30. It’s not exactly a compliment.

I think it’s a combination of all of these things. I’m American and so many of the woke people I know really like pretending to be worldly and educated. However, most of them can’t tell you basic things like the capital of Sweden or even one Finnish work of literature. They’re people who think they’re gazing through a telescope, yet haven’t even managed to put on reading glasses. So, it honestly wouldn’t surprise me if they didn’t realize these policies were in place.

If they did know, they probably don’t want to talk about it because it means actually addressing the issue and admitting the Nordic countries aren’t some utopia that mirrors their every whim.

I’ll never forget the time one of my friends thought she’d just buy men’s trousers because she liked the style better. She quickly learned she couldn’t fit her hips in them without having to make the trouser leg look ridiculous.

As long as I live, I’ll never understand why TomboyX started marketing to transmen. If you want to wear men’s underwear, wouldn’t you just buy it in the men’s section instead of buying it from a company originally marketed to lesbians?

Literally this morning, my partner and I were talking about how every other group in western society gets to set boundaries. No one expected black people to put up with Rachel Dolezal. When Muslims want a space to talk about Muslim issues, no one else gets to butt in. If an indigenous tribe wants to hold a cultural event, it’s perfectly understood that anyone who is not a member can’t go and steal the show. But, any time women or LGB people try to set similar boundaries, we’re suddenly the worst most hateful bigots in the history of the world.

What doing sex work has taught me is that most men either have contacted a sex worker, hired a sex worker, or thought about hiring a sex worker

I mean, if you are literally a prostitute and all of your business dealings are with men hiring hookers then I see how you think that might be a thing for all men. But, like, you have to back a claim that big up with actual evidence.

I’m tired of my pleasure being irrelevant.

Sleep with less shitty people then? I thought you were a professional at this.

People don’t think women ever want to just have sex, but we do.

Show me these people.

Hiring a professional, as opposed to finding someone at a bar or from a dating app, is more appealing to me because after years of catering to everyone else’s sexual needs I want sex without a lot of preamble.

Just download Tinder or show up to the gay club. It isn’t hard if you aren’t a troll or a boor.

Consistently talking about needing a professional is, frankly, odd. This is sex, not brain surgery or HVAC repair. People have had this one on lock for millennia.

I contacted a few of them and here’s what I heard in return: Sorry I don’t see women unless it’s a threesome; OK, but can you send me some selfies of yourself before I decide; or I will see you but you have to pay more. These are likely not the responses a male client would receive.

No shit. These are straight women who will go gay for pay. They don’t actually want to have sex with you.

Of course, no one should have sex with someone they don’t want to

Unless it hurts your feelings and you have to write an entire HuffPost article about it?

if I’m having this much difficulty finding a provider, I can’t imagine what those who are trans or gender-non-conforming would go through

Okay, it’s weird you keep calling it a provider like you’re a general practitioner or something. Anyways, if they’re chasing after people who aren’t into their sex, they’re probably having the about the same difficulty as you doing the very same thing.

Seeing a sex worker can be immensely healing, especially for groups who have been shunned, put down, or treated poorly by society at large. It can be therapeutic to have someone be with you, touch you, see you

Clearly the solution to all the world’s troubles are to just send a brigade of hookers in to heal the downtrodden. On the real, I can’t think of anything that would make me feel worse about myself than having to pay a woman to touch me.

How do you even talk with people this stupid? Show me where women opposed to men larping as us have been dismantling the right to choose. Because the same people they’re calling TERFs are the ones who’ve been fighting anti-choice advocates for years.

If anything, the queer movement removing the ability to talk about who this actually impacts had been a godsend for the right-wing.

Lesbians fighting against erasure are oppressors by [deleted] in LGBDropTheT

For sure. He’s talking out both sides of his mouth and pretending it’s about everyone being free when it’s really about nobody but him having choice.

I don’t see how so many people don’t see it for what it is though. Imagine someone asked me to drink kombucha, I declined, and they responded I was being untrue to myself because I secretly must like kombucha. Then I told them I really hate the beverage and the retort was that I was hurting kombucha producers. Everyone would rightly see that as abso-fucking-lutely nuts. But people can’t see it when trans gets slapped on the same argument.

Labels should serve us, not become a new cage we confine ourselves into while pushing away our comrades.

The label lesbian serves me by plainly describing my sexual orientation to the world. Clearly defining my sexual boundaries doesn’t confine me unless you think having sexual boundaries is confining.

Citation needed for the claim that trans people are LGB people’s comrades. (Also, using the language of a regime that criminalized homosexuality and sent many LGB people to prison camps isn’t exactly a great way to say you’ve got our best interests at heart.)

A label should be a cane, not a ball and chain.

Repetitive. Please revise.

If you think annunciating sexual boundaries is a “ball and chain” that says a lot more about you than it does me. Neither myself nor any other lesbian is sitting around thinking “it’d be great to ride some dick, but I can’t because I use the lesbian label.” We don’t feel confined by a label because it describes the full spectrum of what we honestly desire. I hear therapy is good for working through unresolved issues with yourself and know some people if you need help.

Do not presume that others who use the same label as you differently than you do are applying their label to you.

If I call myself a transwoman and say it means a biological female with an avid interest in re-enacting the lifestyles of the Transalpine Gauls, this would be perfectly fine, correct? After all, you couldn’t assume I’m using a label the same way as others and it would be audacious to tell me how to define myself.

Words have always been allowed to have many meanings. That’s language.

Sure, a cat can mean any feline creature or a cool guy in 1956. That doesn’t mean pointing at a Komodo dragon and calling it cat will make it cat though. (If you think it would, please try petting it.)

Sometimes words can have different usages. Most often, these differences are merely slang. Calling something by a different name won’t change what it actually is.

”Words mean things and you’re watering down what it means to be [insert identity]” isn’t an argument

How should people clearly state anything then? This is like mixing all the soda pops at the Subway drink machine and then trying to figure out how to just have Sprite.

I presume most of us know what thesauruses and dictionaries are for, yes?

Genuinely curious—if words can mean whatever any individual wants, how would dictionaries and thesauruses be formatted and printed? If I decide “atrocious” means “that pleasant feeling of sleeping in on a Sunday morning,” how would the OED go about including that along with everyone else’s take on “atrocious?”

Respectability politics won’t save us.

Correct. But it will save LGB people. It’s what we have to thank for nearly all of our progress. I do see how relying on a narrative of commonality might be difficult for a community that relies on lying, delusion, bullying, and sexist stereotypes to persist. Best of luck with that.

The rest of your community isn’t the problem, the problem is societal expectations placed on all of us

Teensy problem here. The societal expectation is that people ought to be straight. What you’re demanding is LGB people magically make ourselves straight. You are the problem, unfortunately.

It’s barely past sunrise and I feel like I need a drink reading this.

These men are so unbearably delusional and entitled. They spent so much time in echo chambers having their fantasies stoked that they can’t handle reality.

Todd, none of the lesbians are ever going to want you and it’s not because “female socialization makes women passive.” It’s because we’re gay and we aren’t interested men. You’re being rejected and you are only ever going to be rejected if you chase the one subset of women who are not into men.

The moving goal posts are so frustrating. They spent three years making up a bullshit theory to justify this. Instead of sticking with the bullshit theory, they’re just creating a new bullshit theory when it’s more convenient.

What’s even more maddening are all the people who are just acting like this is totally normal and like they aren’t just making it up as they go.

Judaism follows matrilineal descent. If her mother is Jewish, she could also be considered Jewish. It’s a possibility. However, it’s not super common. Reform Judaism (most of American Jewry) is chill with interfaith marriages. Most people either keep their faith or the non-Jewish spouse converts. (There’s some pressure not to convert out just for marriage because of all the attempts to decimate Jewish existence.)

Hey, I’m a lady who was raised as a Christian and is in the process of converting to Judaism. One thing I’ve noticed is that most people who this path are either people with very sincere beliefs or are marrying a Jew. It’s made a little more complicated by Judaism being both a religion and a people. Once you convert, you are considered Jewish both religiously and culturally. If you decide the religion part isn’t for you down the road, you’re still considered Jewish. (It should go without saying, but considering the entire history of pograms and the Holocaust, it’s an extra-serious decision you shouldn’t flippantly make unless you honestly intend to practice Judaism for the rest of your life.)

There are people who seem to be doing this for less genuine reasons though. I’ve come across people who seem to be into it because they want to belong to a religious community without actually believing in anything or changing their lives. (If someone is born into a Jewish family and grows up to be an atheist a lot of liberal congregations will still accept them. The line is fuzzier there because the history of persecution leaves people not wanting to turn away Jews by birth. Obviously, this is a very different scenario than people “converting” to have community with neither faith nor action.)

And then there are people who seem to be doing it because they think being Jewish is another tag they can add onto their bio and claim that they’re oppressed because of it. (Don’t even get me started about how utterly ridiculous it is for people who aren’t Jewish by birth to pretend we experience anti-Semitism outside of worrying about violence when we attend synagogue.) There’s no sincere interest or belief. It just the narcissistic label game with those people.

If I had to guess, she probably falls into the latter category and may or may not have actually converted. Or, maybe she just makes it all up as she goes. Anyways, sorry for the essay.

Breaking: a result of heterosexual sex will impact queer people the most. by julesburm1891 in LGBDropTheT

What I find concerning is that this isn’t something I had to scour the internet to find. It’s a sentiment several woke people I know irl are posting right now. They’re erasing women from a women’s issue, pretending it’s magically an LGBTQ+ issue, and sometimes dragging actually disabled people into the fray. This is both a nightmare PR issue for LGB people and infuriating as homosexual sex leaves zero possibility of pregnancy, wanted or unwanted.

It turns out “queer” doesn’t give the same oppression points as it used to. They have to glom on to something else to feel special I guess. I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen an explosion of people claiming obviously fake disability over the past eighteen months. (Cue the woman I know irl who did a through hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2020, wasn’t injured on the trek, and now claims she’s so disabled.)

I have a friend who actually has EDS and was diagnosed by a doctor over a decade ago after testing and examination. One of her complaints was that it was hard to find other people with her condition because it was so rare. Fast forward to 2022 and every attention seeker suddenly has it and it’s an excuse not to work. (For the record, said friend has never had a problem holding a job.)

If I had to guess, it’s probably one of my great-grandmother’s cousins. Both of her parents came from huge families (13 and 9 kids) and of lot of their siblings had very big families too. Several of those cousins moved away, which could explain why my gran didn’t recognize them. (Plus, the lady on the left has the exact same nose as my great-gran.) Hopefully we can find more photos that have a name somewhere.
