>yeah I don't really see why that matters but okay

>again...don't know why that matters
>yep it's not a sexuality and--what the fuck are you fucking talking about you god damn fucking idiot who the fuck are you to decide that? WHAT THE FUCK? HOW FAR IN DENIAL CAN YOU BE?
>???????????????????? It's not offensive at all. It just only applies to those who are post op.
>yeah sure whatever
Why is tumblr so interestingly awful about this shit? Who started the meme that being trans doesn't require dysphoria or that it's not a type of mental illness? Why does tumblr hate trans people, especially trans men, so much?
No idea about Tumblr, I'm not on it.
The committee responsible for the DSM-V has helped popularize that meme. The idea is that there is no such thing as a disordered gender identity (no more GID listed), but that substantial, lasting distress over a mismatch of body/social context and gender identity (gender dysphoria) is a disorder. Thereby, it is possible to be trans without dysphoria, but transition is a necessary set of treatments for dysphoric persons.
Still don't know enough about Tumblr to answer this.
its just people who are stupid enough that they misinterpreted the rise of liberalism as meaning people care about arbitrary identity laws they write about on their blogs
do you honestly care so much? more visibility results in legitimacy unfortunately
>it's trans, not trans*
Yeah, trans* was introduced to refer to ALL trans people, not just the usual binary trans people, however it ended up being MORE exclusionary than just saying trans, since it implied nb people aren't "trans enough" to be included under trans without the asterisk.
>It's trans men and trans women, not transmen and transwomen - trans is an adjective that answers "what kind of men/women" - cis works the same way
Yeah, this makes sense. I've encountered a lot of people that refuse to see it that way, their ideas of gender are so tied to biology that they can't see trans and cis as adjectives.
>Never call trans men FTMs or trans women MTFs without their permission
3. Not sure why this would be a big deal, I suppose it's because some never identified as their assigned gender in the first place, but MtF and FtM are really talking about things like hormones and how people perceive you.
>Being trans is not a sexuality nor is it a "sexual disorder" or any kind of disorder at all-gender identity disorder is not a real thing, and being trans isn't a medical condition.
Well yes, GID is no longer considered a medical condition, and while GD still is, that's not the same thing as being trans
>If you want to be seen as anything other than a disgusting shitbag, then yes they are mandatory.
But that's a whole different statement than in the image.
>a disgusting shitbag
>implying the world doesn't look at us like that already
Our social status is barely above pedophiles and murderers and even they consider us disgusting freaks.
Me being a dick to trans people isn't gonna affect that in the slightest.
I'd open up a can of whoopass on anybody that would tell me to check my privileges(without being sarcastic, lampooning sjw's) or told me how I should and shouldn't think about certain things(especially if it was from a filthy dyed colored hair sjw scum!!).
I really can't take a person seriously that uses tumblr. Social actavists or leftists are generally fucked up people, I'd suggest anyone who knows someone who has such a chip over their shoulder to stay away from people like that.
