    • Except I doubt many companies are ditching support for Ukraine because it's Pride month.CyBrainX
    • So, I guess the point of this is to make fun of Pride Month or support for gays?CyBrainX

    • @CyBrainX you can both support pride month and enjoy a dumb meme. Whaddayaknow, life's full of complexities like that.jagara
    • Memes are dumb. That's why I usually don't like them.CyBrainX
    • Taking dumb ideas beyond face value and ascribing some misplaced righteous sincerity for ..whatever signalling reason.. is dumb.Nairn
    • Some dumb ideas have something bad behind them. I'm not sure about this one so I posed it as a question.CyBrainX
    • If this were somewhat funny, I probably would have just taken it as a joke but like most memes, it's not funny, even if it isn't offensive.CyBrainX
    • It’s funny because it’s true. It’s not offensive it’s just a commentary on how companies will adopt the monthly pc visual right on cue.monospaced

    Gayest thing you've ever done?

    I wonder when they'll settle on one unifying term instead of the constant changing/updating.

    • Because even members of these communities seem to be confused, not to mention everyone else.jagara

    Most normal people who have grown to be hostile towards LGBT are doing it in spite

    Ie. a person who is initially indifferent or even friendly towards LGBT becomes hostile only when he is told that has to be friendly towards LGBT, and anything else is a deadly sin and strictly forbidden.

    Everyone remembers Kraemer from Seinfeld:
    "But you have to wear an AIDS ribbon"
    "I have to? See, that's why I don't want to"

    Trans people have taken "you have to" to a new level with their pronoun regulations.

    At least that's my first instinct: I owe nothing to anyone, and it has nothing to do with other people's sexuality or gender identity
    The best I can do is being indifferent, I cannot do any extra work to like somebody.

    Problem is most LGTB minorities feed on hate. Just like the Jews who need anti-Semitism, black people in the US need oppression for their personal identity (does not work outside of US) and everyone else who heaps burning coals of hatred on their heads need to be a victim.

    All LGTB people want to be hated -- for the normal functioning of their system.

    • @drgs is your point similar to how e.g. daughters of fathers who are addicts often unconsciously end up with addict husbands? A familiar pattern.mort_
    • and now here's this shit about 'trans' this and trans that... like we need another fucking round of 'lets torment the gay folks'exador1
    • let folks be who and what they are. period. it doesn't change a single fucking thing about you.exador1
    • and for fucks sakes. saying they/them, or addressing someone how they want to be spoken to? how in the good fuck does that hurt or inconvenience anyone?exador1
    • if adding a few pronouns is 'too much', if that's the hill you want to die on, you have some fucking issues. deal with them.exador1
    • ^ That's funny, because this doesn't end on pronouns.babydick_
    • @exador1 Who are you talking to / about? Who is refusing to use pronouns?mort_
    • Nowhere in all these comments has anyone mentioned what the LGBTs did that hurt or impacted you at all. I'm assuming it's something...but it seems like examplesyuekit
    • are few and far between. My impression is it's more like people just don't like to see all this pro-trans or pro-LGBT messaging in media, movies etc.yuekit
    • My only problem is that it's impossible to be indifferent by default/to choose not to participate. Every cis male is assumed to be a transphobic bigotdrgs
    • and has to perform some set of rituals to prove that he is not.drgs
    • I don't fear trans people, it's just that I have enough bullshit with other cis compatriots that I have to plough through every day.drgs
    • I would say my attitude towards trans used to be the same as it is towards furries today. I don't fear furries, I think they are weird and funny.drgs
    • "Trans people have taken "you have to" to a new level with their pronoun regulations."

    • As Pride Month rolls round again, I remain unsurprised that the straights are, in fact, at it again.face_melter
    • What are the rituals you're talking about? The whole thing seems weird on some level because let's be honest, trans people are a tiny fraction of society.yuekit
    • So maybe you can blame people for overhyping this issue when there are tens of thousands starving to death every day in the world, but I still don't get whyyuekit
    • it's threatening to anyone.yuekit
    • yet more finger-wagging, telling queer people how they should live and act around straight/cis folk. what should I do, bow and say 'thank you, sir'? get fucked.face_melter

    Anyway, I think gays are close to being universally accepted and not edgy enough to talk about at this point (in our part of the world)

    So, here is Blanchard's transsexualism typology. There are two types of transsexuals:

    1. Homosexual transsexuals: gay men who are attracted to men, who are feminine by nature and where the only logical direction is to complete the picture by transitioning to a women. This is the true case of gender identity.

    2. Autogynephilic transsexuals: men who are attracted to women, and who get sexually aroused by the thought of having female body parts or, say, if someone calls them "she". This group completely overshadows the one above.

    For women its the same except the sex/genders as mirrored.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bl…
    "Anne Lawrence, a proponent of the concept,[25][38] argues that homosexual transsexuals pursue sex reassignment surgery out of a desire for greater social and romantic success.[27] Lawrence has proposed that autogynephilic transsexuals are more excited about sexual reassignment surgery than homosexual transsexuals. She states that homosexual transsexuals are typically ambivalent or indifferent about SRS, while autogynephilic transsexuals want to have surgery as quickly as possible, are happy to be rid of their penis, and proud of their new genitals.[35]

    According to Blanchard, most homosexual transsexuals describe themselves as having been very feminine from a young age.[47] Lawrence argues that homosexual transsexuals are motivated by being very feminine in both behavior and appearance, and by a desire to romantically and sexually attract (ideally very masculine) men, while autogynephilic transsexuals are motivated by their sexual desire and romantic love for being women.[35] Lawrence also states that homosexual transsexuals who seek sex reassignment pass more easily as women.[26]: 70 

    According to Bailey and Lawrence, transsexuals who are active on the internet are overwhelmingly autogynephilic.[48]"

    Tl:dr; Autogynephilia is a banal case of erotic target location error (people being aroused by amputation, plush animals, feet, performing a sex change operation, being a woman, being a child (not pedophilia) etc).

    I estimate the following split for all transgenders:

    10% Lesbian women transitioning to men
    0% Women with autogynephilia
    20% Gay men transitioning to women
    70% Men with autogynephilia

    I support 1+3 (30%)

    As the only gay here: pride month is 28 days too long, little more than a corporate platform, and not really for gays or lesbians anymore ("queers" and others now take credit for everything gays and lesbians did and claim greater and greater discrimination than ever before).
