|Him:||. . . not everyone with a womb is a woman? I understand that in instances of transgenderism this may be the case, but who decides these things, and who agrees that decision is valid?|
|Uh, I'm talking about being inclusive to trans people, which is really important in terms of being a good feminist at this point. Trans women are denied access to women's shelters and often end up dead because of it.|
|Trans* men are invisible and treated like failed women, or "Lesbian ultra" even when they're not.|
|Non-binary people get endless bullshit from the government and everyone else, and you have the audacity to ask "Who agrees that decision is valid" when people are DYING because of their gender identity?|
|As a non-woman womb haver... please go read even the tiniest bit of information on trans* people before you make such an incredibly ignorant and offensive remark.|
|TL;DR it should pretty clearly be the person who's gender it is who gets to decide if their gender is "valid" or not.|
|Ugh, I do get irritated at people who claim to be social-justice warriors who use their own special language and then feel offended when someone has the "audacity" to use plain English. You're just bitching at me because I'm a dude. So what. If THIS of all things scares you, the concept of actual pan-gender egalitarianism must be petrifying.|
|Someone just busted out their uber-colossal-social-justice-feminist vocabulary, "intersectionality" "womb-haver" "great big fart noise!" SPEAK ENGLISH! Making one sentence reply to ask "Please, explain more what you mean" and then getting petulant reactionary sign-waving in response? COME ON! Hell there's a feminist sitting right next to me on the couch who thinks that essentially everything you said was utterly retarded! (and I use that word unashamedly, as I'm sure the male/female gender ratio for the mentally handicapped is roughly 50/50). People like you are the reason the world doesn't take egalitarianism seriously because of the fringe that constantly shines a spotlight on the social problems that EVERYONE WHO IS DECENT ALREADY HATES!|
|In short, I agree with the first poster. Feminism in 2012 is a desire to be totally and undeniably equal in all aspects of life. Women should have as much control over their own bodies as men do over theirs. This is accomplished not by destroying the very concept of gender, or by forcing laws to reflect others, but by simply respecting and loving people no matter what they choose to call themselves, and NOT BY THROWING A FIT EVERY TIME SOMEONE DISAGREES! THIS IS AMERICA, WE HAVE THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH! THE RIGHT TO DISAGREE! and the sooner we recognize that for every human and trans-human being (yes, they do exist), the better. Of course that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.|
|Also the term "trans-humanism", basically "beyond human" refers to the philosophy of people who see technological advancement as the next stage in human evolution. I myself am a trans-humanist and hope for the one day when we all evolve to the next level and then these problems won't exist anymore anyway.|
|Me:||Actually it's because you're cis and just made a really transphobic remark. I'm a dude sometimes too, so um, yeah, no, considering the fact that I'm trans, I'm allowed to be personally offended by your ignorant bullshit and yes, we do have freedom of speech and the right to disagree, which applies to me as much as it does to you, meaning I have the right to think your opinion is transphobic bullshit and to publicly criticize you for it.|
|Me:||Not everyone with a womb is a woman.|
|Random Dude:||. . . not everyone with a womb is a woman? I understand that in instances of transgenderism this may be the case, but who decides these things, and who agrees that decision is valid?|
|Me:||THE PERSON WHO'S FUCKING GENDER IT IS, DOUCHENOZZLE|
