I understand dysphoria is not fun. But if transgenderism is listed as a medical condition, they can get gender change surgery and have the tools to deal with it. Either way, trans people are no less than everyone else.
I don’t always say this, but the Anon brought it up, so I’m going to address this…
Equating a medical condition into a negative connotation is ableism.
Like Indigo said, trans and non-binary people wanting body and sex dysphoria recognised as medical condition is so that we can get the medical care we need and, as Anon said, hopefully get it covered by insurance (in the US at least) just like someone with fibromyalgia or other “invisible” conditions.
Anyone can call themselves trans, but that doesn’t mean anyone should be able to access the medical care dysphoric trans and non-binary people need to survive.
African American unarmed teenager shot by police. *silence*
Rich, white, old cis male kills himself. *mourning and social awareness*
Fuck you for posting this. And fuck Tumblr for recommending this post to me.
Yeah, like there was any kind of silence after Mike Brown’s death. Like an entire town didn’t rise up in protest, like social media wasn’t flooded with the information, like news isn’t still being released on it. Like there wasn’t a rise in awareness of issues like police brutality, police corruption, or racism in such a case.
How dare you insinuate that there was silence.
How dare you shame people for feeling sad over Robin Williams. How dare you shame people for mourning a person who touched so many lives.
How dare you belittle both of these deaths into a god forsaken contest of points.

Aaaand more lies.
This woman is just HORRIBLE. She’s a complete hypocrite, manipulates everyone, always goes back on her word, and then pulls the victim card whenever people call her out so she can continue to be horrible.
The gaming industry is full of inventive, successful, and intelligent women. Why is so much attention being giving to Zoe Quinn, who’s basically just a professional victim?
How on earth can people still support this woman? You either have to be blind, stupid, or giving her a free pass because she’s a woman. In which case you’re a massive sexist.
"blind stupid and sexist" are the three things you need on your resume to be an "Elite high profile games journalist"
Having the term “misandry” in your blog title, as if it’s a badge to wear and be proud of, is probably one of the least attractive things you can do as a human being.
If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.
If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th
Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown
Gay people are regular people. You don’t need a flaming queer in a g-string and waving a pride flag in a movie to count as representation. The point is to show heterosexual people that there’s nothing different about us. The point is that sexuality is not something you can tell from looking at…
japanese people: yeah sure wear a kimono even though you are white, just know what it means and stands for! and just understand that by wearing this, you are paying respect to our culture! so please do so with careful thought!
white people on tumblr: IF U ARE WHITE nEVER WEAR A KIMONO DONT EVEN LOOK AT IT !!!! CULTURAL APPROPRIATION 101 IF I CATCH U SMEELING A KIMONO I WILL KILL YOU UNTIL YOU ARE DEAD!!!!!!!! DONT EVEN GO TO JAPAN OR THINK ABOUT JAPAN JUST DIE
since plebby and the rest of you liked my last comic so much (and since there were a few dildos in the notes on that post making this very argument), i figured i’d throw in another comic.
so here’s the thing. yes, some of the crazy sjws are just wolves in sheep’s clothing, but you guys have to keep in mind that just because an ideology was put into circulation by a troll does not mean people wont take it genuinely. there are some pretty stupid, impressionable people on this site (read: teenagers) that will believe and fight for anything under the guise of social justice, even if it’s completely bogus.
also, it’s better to acknowledge and help break down the flaw in your movement than it is to try and invalidate said flaws.
tl;dr, the “ALL THE CRAZY ONES ARE TROLLS” argument is invalid.
If said people take said bullshit as genuine and then preach said bullshit to others, chances are that those other people will believe it and preach it even further.
So, they’re not ‘just trolls’ ‘anymore’.
Reminder that your sexual orientation and/or gender doesn’t make you special. You’re a person and that’s it.
If you’re flashing it around like a ring then you’re part of the problem and need to sit the fuck down.
Stop fucking shit up for the rest of us.
People who are feminists:
- People who call themselves feminists, including those who are bigoted, not intersectional, and perpetuate misandry.
People who are not feminists:
- People who don’t call themselves feminists, including those who still believe that men and women should be equal.
