It's not a male thing, it's a "having a penis" thing. If I had a vagina I sure as hell wouldn't be buying a she-wee, those things are ridiculous.

Instead of fighting for a common ground where people will realize that you are a human being who needs to be respected and who has a crisis worth solving, you're just trying to shoot down everyone who opposes you to any degree. This is not how debate works, this is how a stressed out mother tells their child "cuz I said so." This is not how peace is made, this is how generals fuel war.

And to take a step back to the bathroom thing, if you have a vagina you should sit to pee, and if you have a penis you should learn to use a urinal (so you don't piss on the seat for someone to see later when they need to shit). Only one half has penises, so if we're going to split 'em down the middle and make everyone walk left or right, then personally, as someone who has a penis, I'd prefer to have access to a urinal.
#66 - phoenixactual (04/08/2014) [-]
That's you, though. In over a year on hormones, I have not once stood to pee. Most trans people I know don't unless it's absolutely necessary. Standing to pee is a male thing, exactly the habits we're trying to break

Don't assume that I'm not viewing you as an equal. I am viewing you as an equal, and I understood from when you said "I would rather die than go back to what my life was before" that you have taken physical steps toward a gender change. I'm not looking down at you, which is why I'm debating my ASS off. If you want to counter some of my points, you're welcome to, but don't use the position of your point of view as a way to try and gain ground, because I don't sway to fallacy.

Wouldn't they just assume that a woman is in the men's bathroom instead of immediately jumping to the conclusion that she's a "freak tranny"?

I just ask this because I know I have gone into the men's bathroom before due to circumstances (Women's bathroom temp closed for cleaning and can't wait. Too long lines, whatever) and I am a woman.
The men would either just chuckle or ignore me.
Same thing with the other way around. I've seen men in the women's bathroom. (Granted the women reacted a little more than the men, but at the same time, it wasn't a big deal)

I'm not even going to get into the whole different bathrooms thing. If bathrooms are divided by sexuality, then gay men go into bathrooms and get gawked at by straight women, and lesbians go into bathrooms and get gawked at my straight men. If it's divided by gender, it's the same problem but with reversed roles. Tossing gender identity into the mix just further complicates an already broken system.

Everyone goes through emotional bullshit for their own personal reasons. Part of being human is learning to handle your stresses and pains. If it bothers you that badly, then yes you should definitely do something about it. Here's the reality of it though:
There have always been transgender people and they haven't always had the option to change. Some turned into psychopaths because they let it dominate their life, and the rest dealt with it and lead normal lives.

The only difference now is that you have the option to change. Please, make that change to be comfortable with yourself, but I refuse to let you brainwash me into thinking that your problem is more than an identity crisis just like anyone else's. Just because it's your problem, and you have trouble handling it, doesn't mean that your problem is worse than anyone else's.

AND LASTLY
In response to 'why would we put ourselves through that if the alternative wasn't worse?'
If you solve your identity crisis by saying "wow, I think I'd much rather be the other gender. Being the other gender would make me feel much more comfortable with myself." Then you had better do something about it, or I will never forgive you. I don't care what difficulties are placed before you; if something is a part of who you are, then it is your duty to yourself as a living creature of this earth with only one scientifically proven life to actualize your personal reality. You have one chance, so if you are a transgender person and you really know for certain how you identify, then don't fucking blow that chance or else you will let yourself down, you will let me down, and you will let down every other person on this forsaken planet.

You don't need to make more of it than it is in order for it to be important. It's not a condition. It's not a fucking sickness. It's a preference, and it's important to you, and that means that it's important to me also. Anyone who doesn't approve doesn't matter, and you don't need to convince them. OUT

I think youmight have misinterpreted what I meant.

When I said that the sex should remain the same I meant simply the label in medical records, not that people shouldn't be allowed to alter themselves to fit with their desired gender.
#53 - phoenixactual (04/08/2014) [-]
The problem is people believing this is a choice. If people have ever wondered why we get so pissed off, it's this: We're sick of arguing with people over something they know nothing about. The whole idea of bathrooms based on what's in your pants is extremely problematic, most of all because, when you put someone who looks genetically female, and make her go into a crowded men's room, someone's going to notice that "freak tranny", and make things a whole lot more dangerous for her.

:Hey, I seen you havin a Bad day. Don't be feeling down fr losin your job man. It's all gon' be good. Currently, I'm going through something that I have no Idea how to handle. I'm not able to see me son, and I've bee going thru so much stress with the drama. But lets not make this about me. You have a probably beautiful girlfriend, who loves you more than anything, and though you may have autsim, you strike me as a good guy. Trust me, suicide isn't worth it. It's just a Permant Solution to a temporary problem. I had a friend about 3 years ago kill himself because people bullied him for the way her looked. He was one of my only friends, and I was just devastated. Trust me, you taking your own life will hurt more people than it will help. For the sake of those who love you, and for your own sake, please, Just keep your mindset on the positive things in life. Though there may not be many, just focus on the few that are. It'll all be worth it in theend when you have a gril at your right, a child on yourleft, and you can call yourself a family.
