Anonymous asked: Honestly, both sides need to stop talking about trans people. Y'all don't even know that it's just transgender, not transgendered, that the asterisk after trans is transmisogynistic and that trans doesn't mean identifying with the "opposite" gender, but with a gender that wasn't assigned to you at birth. There are no opposites in gender and there are more than two genders. Get it right, please.
Look, everyone’s just trying to help. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen a handful of disclaimers saying “I’m not an expert” “don’t quote me on that” Especially me lol. Sorry for my lack of information.
It would be nice of someone with so much knowledge, such as yourself, would make a post.
I have definitely biffed some things on this topic, and appreciate the constructive input. I completely agree that it would be great if a person with better understanding could make a post on the subject.
There is not only two genders. Yes, there are only two (medically recognised) biological sexes, but there’s not only two genders.
Being transgender can mean anything. It could mean being bigender - being more than one gender. It could mean being agender - not having a genders it could mean being nonbinary - which is kind of like being agender.
So, yes, people are going to get pissed if you say that being transgender is identifying with the OPPOSITE gender.
And please, don’t use the term crossdressing. It implies that certain genders can only wear certain clothing, and that wearing the ‘opposite gender’s’ clothing deserves a special term. There is no crossdressing. There’s only dressing.
