Re: September 27, 2019: Gender Non-conforming G.I. Joe

My impression from this comic is that he’s actually giving a thumbs up to Gender Non-conforming men, but...admittedly...it is a bit confusing which way he is going here. With any luck he’ll have a few more strips with these guys so it becomes clear whether the “real American hero” is a sincere gestu...

Re: July 6, 2019: The Woken Dead

:lol:

...I gotta admit, I sort of wondered if the entire Johnbie storyline was because Tat wanted an epic build-up to the introduction of "ZERF!". :lol:

Re: June 14, 2019: Threats 2

Oh, heh, well, fair enough.

I doubt the DDOS-esque performance before that was caused by Tats, but I suppose it could be awkwardly-timed bad weather for his webhost. That's for him to disclose if it ever happens.

Re: Why can't human beings change sex?

I think this is one of the main issues causing conflict of acceptance of trans-folk. It clearly illustrates the difference between trans-women and women, and I think it hardens the minds of those who see it as clearly 'cheating' - but we are all supposed to accept this without question. Thank you f...

Re: June 14, 2019: Threats 2

It's been pretty obvious to me that once Tats started touching on gender topics, this site has been peppered by DDOS attacks. Then yesterday we saw what looked like someone bringing down the forum by exploiting a security vulnerability in the forum software version. Hence the upgrade to the latest f...

I've lurked on this forum since it existed so I'm not sure what history I'm missing but okay. Just this forum, or were you also a lurker on the original forum? I was introduced to the terms "SWERF" and "TERF" when I lurked over there, back when Tats was starting to touch on anti-porn, and I was a b...

WTH. And someone thought that was a good idea?! Yeah, threaten women with physical violence. That'll totally set you apart from how men have treated women throughout history. (Well, ok, actually, now that I think about it, I don't see men usually wearing t-shirts threatening physical violence toward...

*Sigh* Indeed. And in fact, I don't actually think this: well-meaning folks who feel under attack ...constitutes a troll. I think such people can be disingenuous, or unwilling to come to the table for meaningful discussion...but to call them trolls is warping the meaning of a troll. I *do* think we'...

Does anyone know if some percentage of the trolls speaking to the anti-radfem POV (here or elsewhere this topic is discussed) are professional trolls? It feels nowadays like any discussion of how people feel on a divisive topic isn't complete without assessing the breakdown between: A. At one end of...

That would be great :) I’ve already learned so much on these forums that has expanded my understanding of the situations at hand. I look forward to the day when I understand how to articulate my concerns enough to speak up myself, but...I need to spend a lot more time listening/reading to smart pe...

The pronoun thing is so annoying to me. I am so glad that Tat has mentioned it. I mean it is already pretty difficult for me to differentiate the sex of certain people I see so that I have to get creative in how to reference them in a polite way. I was brought up to say 'sir' or 'ma'am' and those w...

Quick (I hope?) context question, because even if I remembered my old anatomy class terminology, the usage may be different in these conversation. Does "genitalia" include uterus, or is it specific in these conversations to the parts that are directly involved in intercourse (vagina, penis, testes, ...

Have you ever read Dune? (I'm re-reading the Frank Herbert books) That's the only series which comes to mind when I think of sociological storytelling. Yep :) I usually wax poetical during a re-read to whoever is unfortunate enough to be in my orbit, because I swear there's always another layer tha...
