    narcissistic - the act of insisting others refer to you in a certain way under threat of legal action ticks most of those boxes.

    just thought i'd throw this in for some objectivity In the DSM-5, narcissistic personality disorder is defined as comprising a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behaviour), a constant need for admiration, and a lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in various contexts, as indicated by the presence of at least five of the following nine criteria: A grandiose sense of self-importance A preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love A belief that he or she is special and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people or institutions A need for excessive admiration A sense of entitlement Interpersonally exploitive behaviour A lack of empathy Envy of others or a belief that others are envious of him or her A demonstration of arrogant and haughty behaviours or attitudes i leave the counting to anyone interested, noting self diagnosis is often biased

    WOMM: sitting here in a dim room before 4am, getting blinded by yet another web page with a huge expanse of whitespace. Why don't broswers have a quick&dirty 'night mode' button to save your eyes? At minimum, all you'd have to do is invert the colour palette, though I think it should be possible to do something less jarring with per-page brightness and contrast.

    I’m told Fox News criticises Trump once every 450 praises. It’s like that “but my best friend’s black” defence Every far-x uses it as exculpatory evidence of how unbiased they are.

    i have "under shelf" warm led lighting pointed up on top of the bookcase, bounced off a white cieling it's bright enough to type on a non-backlit keyboard, but not much > candle power i HATE anything brighter than warm white after sunset, and even then i don't usually go to bed till midnight or later - my circadian cycle is all sorts of strange; i get up at 7:50 when i'm working, otherwise am not unhappy to arise at the crack of noon if it seems right

    You keep saying "correct pronoun" without the qualifying "IMO". So yeah. I dunno. If that's not a sign of NPD, what would you call it, when your unique vision of the world is perfect and we all have it wrong? If you're worried about watching what you say around your employees, may I suggest some of the following options? Don't be in business; pay someone for some HR; make use of unisex toilets.

    Well, I mean, it's legal for men to marry men now, so you're kind of obliged to marry and fuck your pet dog, right? Back in my day, we didn't let them coloured folk marry us whites, because we knew what path it'd lead down to.

    As far as that case goes I'm fine with a man saying that she is now a woman. I understand that doesn't make sense for some people but personally, I'm fine with them purchasing a lady's swim at the pool. I'd like to see a gender dysphoria diagnosis for a passport change too. Nothing too arduous if that's what you want but at least something. Maybe get it down to xy or xx and you can then identify as a xx or xy male or female. Preserve the scientific but leave the option for identity.

    Informed consent. You may have noticed it's also a bit of a thing amongst left leaning people. For some it's to the point you nearly need a written contract to have sex. And it is generally agreed a child can't give informed consent. Also, as far as gender being fluid, well that is, as you point out, all in the head. I don't know many people who think their actual biological gender changes like that. It's more about how you feel about it. I personally feel a healthy way to live is just be a person who has a gender and stop worrying about whether your feelings are male or female and just act how you want but it's never been a thing for me and I'm happy to give people what ever gender title they like because it's no skin off my nose to make them a little more comfortable in their every day lives.
