Okay legbutts, now that Pride Month is coming to an end, how do you think it went?
Plenty of related news:
- protest march, not parade, in LA
- Trump ignoring the month
- Justice Gorsuch getting his homophobia on
- Germany voting for marriage equality
- that flag in Philadelphia
Was it a good one overall? How does the year to come look?
>tfw America is going crazy during a pride month, both for and against, and I'm just sitting here in Eastern Europe masturbating
I think Ramadan was this month? Like that's the only month long event local media reported on.
I'm going to start transitioning this year because it was either that or kill myself. Thing is I'm 23 so I don't have much hope. I kinda plan on trying for some time and if it doesn't work out killing myself. How long do you thing I should give it? 2 years? 3 years? 5 years?
Are there any gay movies where a straight get gets stood up or dumped or something, and a guy comes up and is like "fuck women, we dont need them" and they get drunk together and he turns gay?
Am I the only one here who thinks only people WITHOUT dysphoria should transition?
I never considered myself trans or felt particularly sad about my body, I just wanted to look cute through the physiological effects of hormones and so I took them, and lo and behold I am doing better physically and mentally than 95% of trannies I know.
To me it seems like "dysphoria" is a mental perception issue that requires a fundamental psychic fix in the form of changing your outlook of the world, it's not something to be solved by just shoving hormones into your body, as that just exacerbates the negative perception by increasing the desire for change (starting to change your body makes you want to change it more, it doesn't 'satiate' the feeling, only exacerbates it).
Does anyone here feel the same? am I the only sane tranny around or what?
'gender' dysphoria is a purely physical feeling, . social dysphoria is just a result of social norms, as gender is socially constructed. Everyone should be free to alter their body and present themselves as they see fit.Gender is fake, Everyone is legitimate.
I don't know how you could say it's a physical feeling (I mean, I do know, but it seems obviously wrong to me). Dysphoria is heavily influenced by perception, it's influenced by the types of images you are exposed to, it's influenced by the physical forms in which you see yourself (do you own mirrors? are they full body ones, or just sections? does the lighting make you look worse? do you take selfies? etc etc)
There's just so many factors that can bring up the thoughts of dysphoria, trans people clearly react with this feeling in response to specific stimuli. Seeing some super attractive girl is something that can trigger that feeling, so could that be leveraged? what if every time you saw a cute girl someone held up a picture of your own body to compare with, do you think you would have more dysphoria over time or less?
Even if you say it's a "physical" thing, it means little when your brain's physiology literally changes in response to inputs.
If dysphoria can be increased, it can also be decreased - this is what I think
Do you think Eminem is homophobic?
I don't think it matters either way really
I don't like his music but I wouldn't hate him if he was, seems like a normal guy with a decent sense of humor
He said faggot on a CD, big deal
He used to just say things for shock value. I don't think he actually wants all gays dead or anything. He made fun people that died like christoper reeves sonny bono. He just says shit to get a reaction. I mean it's rap music he doesn't go around killing people and slitting peoples throats like he raps about so I doubt he hates gays.

So, how many of you dumbasses got suckered into voting for this clown because he was gonna protect you from muh big bad muslims?
That George W. Bush did this and Trump won't is pretty damning, but then it's that kind of disdain for moderate or "establishment" conservatism that earned him the adoration of so many who felt unserved by the existing political power structure
How would you inject them with the gay?
Any tips for coming out as trans to parents? I think I might just get drunk and try to tell them idk.
I came out in a letter. It's a good route to go because there's physical separation. If they react negatively at first, at least it won't be to your face, and they also wouldn't be pressured to respond immediately.
Can Transgender peoples receive their own board?
More than half the threads posted on /lgbt/ are transgender-related. This leaves little room for lesbian, gay and bisexual discussion. This is extremely unbalanced and warrants a change.
My suggestion would be to name the new board /trans/ for Transgender topics and the old board will be renamed to /lgb/ for Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual topics. The creation of this new board would benefit both parties, as it would allow more room for both kinds of posters (transgender and homosexual) to discuss topics relative to each board.
Hiroyuki did say that each board would be allowed to have at least one thread to discuss issues and solutions regarding that board. So mods, please allow criticisms. Thank you.
I've accepted I'm trans and I have dysphoria but I can't rationalize transitioning. I'll never be a girl and I probably wont even pass. It will really fuck with my life and mostly everyone wont accept me. I don't even know what to do. I live in the US so yeah chances are I wont get killed but that doesn't mean my life will be decent. Although if I could transition and not be judged and accepted I would do it. Does this mean I should just say fuck everything and just try?
Saying fuck it and trying anyways is usually the best bet. But you dont have to go fast. Its completely ok to be patient and slow. I do recomend getting on hrt though. You may find it helps you in ways you didnt expect.
How does it feel to know that even if you transition and pass perfectly, no one will understand why you did it?
At most people will humor you in order to be "progressive" but they'll always think it's something like getting a nose job rather than attempting to stop a huge amount of dysphoria that makes you want to kys.
Since the flag changed, is the old one now a racist hate symbol?
Why are you folks so obsessed with flags? Why does every faction of LGBT need a flag, as opposed to just using the rainbow flag?
In Russia if you kill a homosexual guy the police will not search for you since gays are seen as lesser-humans. Which means that you can kill a human and get away with it! I am insane.
