A few weeks ago, I was out skateboarding and there was either an extra butch lesbian vs. trans also skateboarding and she/he was skating better than any woman I've ever seen in person. I say this with over two decades of skateboarding behind me.

I think that says something about a male mentality as the vast majority of hetero female skateboarders are either complete beginners or very limited. The super butch was basically working with the same body as all of the girls who suck.

Did I hurt your feelings in another thread?
Just look at that avatar....Man forcibly shoves other man's head into his crotch in ultimate display of Alpha Masculinity. And two martial arts in one username. 100% badass. You're out here rolling around on floor trying to emasculate grown men while us mere mortals are stuck behind keyboards.

That's great and all, but I didn't have an Avatar until one of the admins gave that one to me.

You want a hug?

Yeah, there were two that were kind of "life partners" and were regulars at a shopping centre I used to work at. They went to the same coffee shop as me and most of the staff in the area knew of them. They were older men-to-women, and they had obviously been men for a very long time. They both constantly had 5-o'clock shadows, they were both very overweight and had deep voices. They were notoriously irritable and got pretty confrontational with some staff.

The father of a friend of my wife decided in his fifties that he was Susan now, told his daughter to start calling him "mum", to which she replied, "nah".
Fucking hell, I would eviscerate my dad if he came to me with this shit one day. Thankfully, the probability of it happening is less than 0%.

I forgot to say, but the closest gay thing I've ever had in person were a few friends in high school. My god, like half the fucking graduating top 10% of my class were fucking gay. Like, everyone in the top 10 were really close because we all had AP classes together. I went to a rural school, so I'm sure it was because they'd be bullied to hell and back, but fucking hell, the amount of people my group of friends that I still talk to every now and then tell me are gay now is shocking. Like, our valedictorian was a huge conservative. Guy works for a conservative think tank now, and he was caught making out with a boy at a party.

Not gonna sit through 18 minutes of Sargon but it's been pretty clear for some time that medical professionals in this area are too scared of the extremely aggressive trans lobby to properly scrutinise those who come to gender clinics and want to change gender.

The whistle was only ever going to get blown on this by a regretting trans person with nothing to lose rather than a doctor with everything to lose.

Nope,absolutely zero around here.Closest iv'e seen is this old cunt with a beard who goes a walk out in the countryside wearing a dress and cowboy/girl??????? boots.
Heavy make up which doesn't really make it any more realistic.

I live in New York and have surprisingly little contact with them. Still feels like it’s mostly an internet phenomenon to me with few actual participants.

Yes, I live in Newtown in Sydney, which is basically the hub of all the LGBTQWHFFFV wankers in the world.

And of the 4 I know, ones legit and the others I’m fucking sure are putting it on. Can’t say shit in this town though, I’m an outcast being a straight white male.

It makes entertaining nights.

Get back to the coopers & behave yourself

I could probably count on my hand the number of trannies I've seen IRL. I don't know any personally, and I'm definitely glad that I don't. I'd easily cease everything if a friend of mine came out in a dress or something.

I don't know if I talked about this here or on ESB, but I went to a pretty liberal college. Like, campus always had some protest or some junk shit, but the haven where none of that shit happened was the science buildings. Anyways, I was on the bus to get to school with my friend, and this fucking monstrosity of a man gets on. Dude has hair fucking everywhere and is easily 6'+ with a football-player's build. Something like a fucking linebacker. Dude was wearing a dress, long hair, the whole 9-yards. I don't know how you can think that's even remotely sexy. Seen him two times, so it wasn't a frat-boy doing a dare or something. It was a legit tranny. Anyways, that was one of the craziest things I've seen IRL.

Why would you assume women leave the house on a daily basis with the intention of being or looking sexy for the likes of you?

Show dem balls bro
i do my best to avoid the mentally ill
And I have to do my best to welcome and accept. To be honest it's not bad at all, everyone I know or have come into contact with are fairly straightforward normal people, not these weirdos you see on internet sites or YouTube clips. Haven't met a bad one or strange militant one yet to be totally honest.

Now just to clarify, because of the job and it's inclusiveness I am to be welcoming and accepting, but I do not have to champion the cause, which is the way it should be. Nobody should be forced to champion someone else's cause unless they personally have a desire to do so or it's been written in specifically into their job description.

I know I seem to give a lot of shit here but the trans community around here is pretty solid with lots of good people just trying to live their lives. Same thing that everybody else wants.

There's one who comes into my workplace fairly often. When they first started coming, it was a man and then they didn't come in for about 6 months or so, and the next time they were in, it was a woman with noticable breast implants. It was definitely odd seeing that at first but they're nice, so it is what it is.

My issue isn't with trans people but moreso the movement behind it. I think a miniscule percentage of society are actually born this way, yet look at how frequent you hear about trans issues or people. I don't even think 0.01% of society are genuinely and legitimately in need or gender reassignment yet it's become such a political issue, which, tragically, has ruined a lot of lives and will continue to do so.

Nobody seems to want to ask the awkward questions in these cases; is the person mentally ill, are they gay, are they depressed, is it attention seeking, are they merely confused, are they unintelligent, do they fully understand gender, has this been encouraged by their parents and so on, because every one of those points is considered to be so offensive, it could never be asked. It'd be the usual "how dare you question whether my 11 year old child is confused, you're a hateful bigot" and the next thing, the far left authoritarians are calling for a lynching. It's wrong and the failure rate of trans surgery tells us that, and the overall suicide rate of trans people is definitely indicating that the there are fundamental issues which aren't necessarily being addressed by offering testosterone/estrogen and surgery. When you hear about kids not being given genders from birth and raised gender neutrally, what their parents are doing is removing the possibility of that child ever having a normal childhood and it's cruel for any parent to use their child as an experiment, just so they can climb further up onto their ivory tower.

I have no resentment towards the tiny percentage of people who are legitimately transger and I think they deserve support, surgery, medication etc., just like a person would do if they had any other medical issue. I just don't think that so many people actually are transgender and yet because the movement is so strong and fear of accusations of bigotry is so real, we now have a situation where people who aren't in that miniscule minority are being offered dangerous, life altering treatment. Nobodies life should be ruined because doctors are - quite rightly - worried that their career will be ruined because they've asked basic, appropriate questions but that's the world we live in now, it's not just common sense that has been abandoned, medical knowledge and expertise will be shunned because contrary opinions are considered morally wrong.

It's always considered a flimsy, childish argument when people say "well, what if I identity as an octopus" or whatever but there is a solid point in there. At what point do we accept and legitimise these opinions and where is the line drawn? For me, we've already overstepped that mark and have now started to treat mental illness or confusion as being legitimate, and not only is this ruining many lives, it's killing vulnerable people who needed better help - not just an exuberant offer of surgery and a tablets to chemically castrate them.
