gently caress you! That's exactly what dictionaries are for! They do not prescribe a fixed usage but instead report linguistic trends.

r/wtf thread with a picture of a newspaper headline saying teachers are advising victims of bullying to "act less gay"

The top comments aren't bad, but then you get to "this is good advice! see you should change your behavior to fit in better ad plus you won't get bullied!" ad nauseam and ugh

UGH

quote:

Ya know, it sounds insesitive, but as a teacher I agree with the sentiments. Personally I see the only real solution to bullying is for schools to have more ability to expell them. However, a life long lesson for those being bullied by the average student is to quit being so loving annoying. That goes for everyone including the queeny gays. People don't have to like you, you can't make them, sack up!

This is a teacher saying this. How do you say this and teach. How.

All of the comments here are depressing me. Maybe acting "normal" works, but it isn't the only solution and it isn't what we should be teaching children. I seriously hope none of you have children because I can't believe that someone would want to teach their child to hide who they are. This is the very reason why there are so many homophobic closet gays out there.

What's wrong with teaching kids at an early age to man the gently caress up and take care of themselves instead of having everyone else do it for them? Bullying is very personal on many levels, the best way for someone to turn such a lovely situation around and make it beneficial is for them to tackle the problem head-on and fix it themself. Not everything is best handled by passing it off to someone else and making it another person's responsibility.
If you wish to raise your children a different way, so be it. Gradeschool is as much a place for social growth as it is for educational growth. Because of this, I try to let my children grow up strong early in life so they have the toolset necessary to handle the real world down the road.

I mean, at what age would you consider it appropriate to tell your child, "Man the gently caress up, son"? I'd say more along the lines of "twenty-five" but nope, turns out the correct answer is "kindergarten."

So if I say I'm a woman and I'm dressed as a man and I have a penis, no surgery, no hormone therapy then you would consider me a woman?

I guess you would be okay then with me being in your daughter/girlfriend/wife's change room in full view of her nakedness. After all - I'm just a girl.

Since we need to actual scientific genetic proof of someone's sex then I guess I could also say I'm a giraffe. Who are people to tell me otherwise? Can I say I'm a 5 year old? Who are you to tell me otherwise?

The idea that someone is something just because they say so is ridiculous. If you are born a man, you are always going to be a man. You might be a man without a dick or a man that grew tits or whatever but you are a man. The same goes if you are born a woman. The only time when there is confusion is for the people born with odd sex genes and stuff and those are the people that should be able to determine their sex for themselves. But when it is clear as day if you are a woman or man at birth then whether you like it or not then you will always be that sex. Always.

Is it just me or when transphobic people try to say how ridiculous trans people are with implausable bullshit, they always go for "I'M IN THE CHANGING ROOM/BATHROOM WITH OTHER WOMEN AND LEERING BUT IT'S OKAY CAUSE I SAY I'M A WOMAN" and/or "I AM A GIRAFFE/DOLPHIN RESPECT MY IDENTITY"? I can see why they say the stupid poo poo with the former, but the latter, it always seems to be giraffes and dolphins for some reason.

Are you sure you found that quote on noted progressive website reddit dot com??

quote:

"It does not have the aesthetic design of Digg, although it tends to generate more quality discussions and is far more versatile. Reddit is now the traffic king of the social news sites and an excellent place for advocates of real reform and progress to gather. The concept is simple: democracy of the internet."

"Good fresh content from solid and/or original sources tends to float to the top and the Reddit community is merciless in downvoting bad articles and spammy websites."

"Since Reddit consistently has the best content that also goes popular the quickest..."

"While there are some trolls, getting banned for comments is very rare, and the quality of discussion at Reddit is often exceptionally good."

"'Republicans are corporate whores' may be fun to say, but that type of comment will not be well received on Reddit."

To be fair, I'm sure Reddit is an okay/good way to "share progressive content," but that article exaggerates the level of discourse just a tad. This is from February so apologies if it's been posted before. I just searched "noted progressive website reddit" on google (without quotes) and this was one of the first things that popped up.

Transpeople wanting to be treated as their target gender and referred to as such is the same as wanting everyone to pay to create SPECIAL things for you because of your choices. This is the flawless argument people saw played out on TV and decided to parrot.

Is it a surprise that the South Park creators also identify as libertarian? To the point where they said they hated liberals more than conservatives?

I mean...I want to like the show and I am a libertarian myself but most libertarians I know are loving horrible people. I just don't want to be a libertarian nor like South Park anymore.
