omg. OMG. OMG
anyway, and i will commit to it this time, i am not going to drag this out. that’s it. i made my point.
i mean, is it me or is it strange that this is a context in which i get to be mocked, for (albeit incorrectly) trying to preserve some sort of agency for myself that isn’t getting sucked up by people who claim their life without “corrective” surgery and forced testosterone treatments is exactly the same as mine?
like. does nobody see the issue of conflating transness and intersex, while at the same time acting like the two are mutually exclusive?
beautiful how people tell trans women that DSAB/CASAB/ASAB/CSAB language is appropriative and we should just not use it at all.
like just be transparent and say you just want us to call ourselves male.
"designated" is not appropriative. did you undergo…
how can they appropriate words they created?
ok cool, U Got Me, u have totally contributed things to this post that were not already said, way to go
uh oh, sounds like a big baby got mad when they didn’t know history and now wants to cry wah wah wahhhhh about it!
intersex people have a distinct set of experiences that dyadic people do not, that is the core point i am striking at. yes, i made a mistake in the history of my terms.
so, yeah, sure, crying hardcore here
no no no nevermind i am just not going to continue talking about this
there is a specific set of experiences that dyadic people do not have that intersex people do. that difference is being ignored aggressively and that is the issue i am dealing with here.
but i’m not going to keep dragging this out
yeah i was incorrect but fuck it i am not going to apologize on this issue because most of the respondents are implying that A. i must want them to call themselves men (which i never did) and B. that i myself am not a trans woman (which is kind of what they’re mad at me for saying about them, even though i didn’t)
the way i see it i have nothing to apologize for beyond a fact-checking error
