I know this sounds like an odd thing to say, but half the reason I have a problem with the whole not X therefore Y in genders, is because its so black and white.
Why can't you be an effeminate male?
What happened to tomboy females?
I even find the "born in the wrong time period" or the "born in the wrong species" or "gender fluid\Asexual" crowd less weird. They're less black and white, much more ....natural? or more fluid, like people are....
From a statistical mindset, the odds of not being X therefore being Y is a lot less likely then Not being X therefore being any of ABCDEFGHIJKL~etc.
A boy or girl being more masculine or effeminate is no issue, but you are still the gender that you were born as.
The issue i see is sexual identity and gender identity, you might show traits more common for the other gender but you are not and will not be that gender.
It's the same as the Weeaboos, you can sit there and stuff your face with poky sticks and speak in broken Japanese but you are not and will not be Japanese.
For most of them its just a phase, it goes longer than that and TBH its a mental issue and that's fine, I just don't think we have to play into their mental issues and pretend that its all fine.
I'm quite openly weeaboo; and thats the difference.
I like Japanese culture.
I enjoy pretending I'm japanese top-shit.
Why is this not a problem?
Because I know what reality is and can admit what it is and isn't. I know where the fantasy ends.
There we go and that's the difference between it being a problem and it not being a problem.
The way it would be a problem would be if i said I didn't agree with it and then hundreds of Weeaboo's then send me death threats and try to get me fired.
imo... she's either very blasé or studiously being nonchalant wrt Cyb3r ;) I reckon he should return the blasé
" she doesn't use her fb very much " ... oh paleease !
I think D is right, I asked the guy that set me up with her and he told me that she refuses to touch her phone when with other people. She certainly honored that on our date. But she's also into charity work so maybe (probably) Xen is on the money too! :P
To help prevent these sort of occurences legislation has been introduced to limit the temperature to 50deg C, you can call this being a nanny state but where do you want to draw the line, what level of carnage is acceptable?
I hope you have plastic knives and forks at home too.
Hell fuck it, lets just stick everyone in government approved padded cells whilst we're at it.
In my very younger years growing up in the west country of England I was once party to rescuing a tractor driver after a roll over - they really were not a stable vehicle in those days and killed a lot of farmers - much better now.
I'm not explaining well - best guess as a hobby farmer he had a quad to have a hoon around, totally understandable, I've memories of that kind of hooning indelibly imprinted on my body, but I'm still alive.. Just very, very sad....
Seen the bad ends of both a tractor roll over and PTO shaft incident.
Farming is a job that a slight fuck up can be death or destitution.
