For one thing, it is actually a clever meme, because I could see an old person who happens to be ornery saying exactly that. If you toned it down to "gay," it wouldn't be as funny precisely because part of the humor comes from the fact she's saying something more offensive than she realizes, as old people often do. It's all right, Melody. We know progressives have no sense of humor or wit beyond the boring limits they deem to be acceptable.

Being liked or being likable isn't a prerequisite to being funny. You've thrown out a lot of generic labels I have heard lots of times, so they've lost a lot of meaning given that they have been overused and often misapplied. You may be right, you may be wrong. I'll find out for myself in due time. The meme was funny regardless.

Of course not, most of them don't want attention, but most of them have a mental disorder that needs to be addressed and pampering their delusions does nothing to address the root problem.

Instead of giving into their fantasies and in some cases, delusions, we need to help them overcome them. Plenty of psychiatric counseling is what is needed.

The idea that it doesn't affect their lives or anyone else's is the reason there are those (mostly on the left) who act like if someone doesn't accept their lifestyle it could only mean one thing...bigotry.

In a comment I made here on the same meme, I talked a little about the suicide rates between non trans people and the trans community. Someone said the reason the trans community has a high suicide rate is due to the fact that they're constantly bullied. I stated that isn't very likely. In the non trans community (the overwhelming majority of people) the suicide rate is not any higher than 5%,while the trans community it's near 50%. If the reason trans people were committing suicide because of bullying, the non trans people suicide rate wouldn't be as low as 5% and would be about the same rate.

It's the rate of people being bullied to those committing suicide.

Example: if 100 non trans people are being bullied and 100 trans people are being bullied, only about 1-5 non trans people being bullied out of 100 are committing suicide, while almost 50 innthe trans community are out of 100.

Yeah, dude, transgender people commit suicide because of people like you who give them psychiatric counseling they don't need. That's called mistreatment, which is a direct cause of depression and anxiety, which can be a direct cause of suicide. By calling them mentally ill and saying that they're delusional just for being something that's different from you, you are indirectly bullying every transgender person on the planet. They don't need psychiatric counseling because it isn't a mental illness. They don't need to address a "root problem" because there is none.

And your scientific evidence for this is where? Thinking that transgender people need counseling and that have a mental disorder isn't an opinion, you need scientific proof and studies that suggest that they are mentally ill.

So odd rare situtions mean what in the bigger picture? There's probably some kind of medically based measure. In any case we can't just make obviously false claims about our selves and others and expect everyone to just roll over. Yo I'm a goose. No feathers no webbed feet no bill 6 ft tall be u r a wicked fundamentalist hateful bigot if u question my self identification which I'm totally free to radically change at any time.

That's a medical condition that affects less than 1% of the population and is in most cases easily remedied. Those that need counseling because of this problem, so be it, but having two parts isn't reason to give in to the delusions of those who wish to change sexes.

It doesn't matter how little it happens. Transgender are a small fraction of the population too. If you're going to have criteria like this for deciding someone's gender it should apply to everyone. And how is it easily remedied in most cases? Who gets to decide?

Of course not but that's not germane. Men can't give birth. The driver recently gave birth. Therefor the driver's claim to be male is invalid. Agree or disagree?

I'm talking about the overall topic. So it's about whether you have a uterus or can ejaculate sperm. That's the male / female gender criteria? And again I say, what if someone is born without a uterus? Or without a p**is? I don't care about the likelihood of this happening it happens more than you might think. What criteria does one use to decide gender then?
[deleted]

Defining by rare deformity is a poor argument if it's even any argument at all. What is at most a tiny bit of fuzziness trumps literally billions of ppl throughout history having not the least problem knowing whether they are male or female. Huh. And why won't you answer agree or disagree in the specific scenario presented?

Defining women based on what though? Not all women can or will procreate, even those with "normal" reproductive ability...
[deleted]

By definition women with normal reproductive ability can give birth. Obviously circumstances play into whether or not they will. Are you male or female? Are you confident that you will always be one or the other? Nonone necessarily knows for sure they won't look at their perfectly normal genitals one day and think heyyy that's a dick alrighty but man i feel like a woman! Riiiiight? (Cue shania twain song) There are various things tjat indicate maleness or femaleness. But chuck em all as potentially irrelevant brcause...ehat?

Chromosomes determine sex, not your delusional mindset. Maybe sometimes I feel a bit like a woman. Doesn't make me a woman. Men don't become able to bear children just because you surgically remove privates and turn them inside out. Your chromosomes still say you're a male.
0 ups, 4y
Um, actually, while most xy individuals are male and most xx individuals are female, it does not always work that way. Fetal development depend on hormones in the womb. Typically the hormone pattern follows what chromosomal information would indicate, but that is not always the case.
Interesting to note: ALL human fetuses begin as female and may deferentiate to male during development.

My personal oppinion is that gender is irrelevant except for medical reasons (i.e. testicles vs. uterus) and personal preferences regarding personal romantic relationships (for instance, I would not date a female to male trans because I like dick, and most available surgeries will not give them working dicks).
People get hung up on labels because we accept gender sterotypes: that certain fashion and behavioral traits belong to a certain gender.

The driver gave birth but you said he is male. Or did you assume for some reason the girl was not stating the truth when she said he gave birth? The driver recently gave birth and emphatically identifies as male. In light of this do you judge the driver to be male or female? Please indulge me here I do honestly want clarity. :D

In the storyline the driver recently gave birth. Why r u not getting that? Go with that as a fact then decide if the driver's claim to be male is valid. I know the rock is male but that's irrelevant. And maybe get some serious sleep and a good meal first okay? I'm honestly getting a bit concerned.

2 ups, 4y
I think you're the one detached from reality. Or maybe you were just born in a particularly backward era. There are people who have disagreed with their gender designation since a very young age, since they were old enough to talk. Maybe people like Bruce Jenner take decades to admit it. But others have known it since day one. I can't speak for everyone. It doesn't matter what gender I am. Just trying to present another viewpoint into this highly ignorant and close-minded discussion.
