which I'm okay with. not caring about others' feelings probably comes from me being antisocial.

then stop claiming to be nice to them. not caring about others' feelings is antisocial. i'm glad you finally stopped hiding behind the veil of science and have let out the truth

It's just bewildering to have yet another one who chooses to die on this particular hill. I, too, join tiny boards, pick the one bro rocking a two digit IQ who gets mocked by basically everyone else for their bullshit, and go "what fuzzy says seems reasonable." my favorite hobby, please continue!
c'mon.

you are not trying, bro.

if someone tells you you should refer to them as she and you continue to call them he - how exactly is that trying. it isn't. what it is is consciously choosing to be transphobic, glad we cleared that up. thanks for playing.

I do not dislike trans people. I am not prejudiced.
and I'm not talking about pronouns specifically; I'm talking about being nice in general.

this is like saying I may insult them as much as I want, as long as I use their preferred pronouns. there is more to being nice.

using their preferred pronouns is a necessary but not sufficient condition for the low bar of being nice to a transgender person

do you think it'd be better for transgender people if everyone started addressing them using the pronouns that they prefer?

it's fascinating how all the sources I've looked at so far are all American. not one transgender-related study from India that I could find. pretty interesting.

This is fundamentally prejudiced and disrespectful. You do not have the right to decide what is right or wrong when it comes to how oppressed people are treated. There are plenty of intelligent, educated transgender people to set their own rules and norms. Your job as someone who wants to be respectful and not support hate is to show basic empathy to their wishes and defer to them. You should be humble, because neither of us has any inkling what it actually is like to be trans. Especially when it comes to issues that do not affect you and you are not in a position to truly understand on an experiential level, the world does not need your forceful black and white opinion. You are only causing harm.

this is a fundamental contradiction. if you refuse to show respect to people in ways that feel respectful to them, you aren't being respectful. You don't get to decide for others what is respectful to them.

you having an opinion does not make your opinion logical or valid by virtue of you having it. Do you know what ethos is? You have no ethos here. Your opinion is actually less than neutral in terms of validity because you are contradicting people with much higher ethos than you.

Then you should learn to show respect and be deferential to the experiences of others, because your attitude right now is arrogant and harmful. If you really are 17 I get that you probably feel like you have a very deep understanding of all this stuff, but you don't. In four more years you will be post-college age, and your view of the world will have shifted as much as it has in the last four years since you were 13 (at least hopefully, you could always be like fuzzy and stop developing at age 17). You seem to have an issue with empathizing with others and a drive to tell others what is correct or incorrect for them to feel, but you just look like an asshole.

Well, you're older. You're probably right. I've changed DRASTICALLY in the last 4 years, and I might change in the next 4 as well.

I still don't see how it's harmful. Offensive to some, sure, but not harmful. I am not denying to you your humanity if you're transgender. I'll still treat most people equally.

I just don't know why people would consider me a troll just because my views don't align with those of most SJWs.

Also, victim groups don't really have the higher ground by default. I don't see why some peoples' opinions are worth more than others' opinions.

According to the Anderson School at UCLA, it makes no difference – there’s a study that came out last year – it makes no difference, virtually no difference statistically speaking, as to whether people recognize you as a transgender person or not, which suggests there’s a very high comorbidity between transgenderism, whatever that mental state may be, and suicidality, that has nothing to do with how society treats you.
Spot on, brother.

I better warn you now though, people here aren't going to like to hear that. There's very little room for debate when it comes to this topic around this neck of the woods. It's frankly a little close-minded.

Not surprising at all, man. Big Pharma is really pushing this whole trans-gender movement cause it's big-time business.

You guys on Netphoria should be more understanding that not everyone in the world has the same viewpoints and opinions as you. This hive mentality leads to no growth or willingness to learn.

I realize that you guys all have your hearts in the right place, and that is commendable... But the jury's still out in a lot of ways regarding this movement/disorder so it's not exactly intelligent to take such a firm stance on what you believe.

or maybe you are equally as racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, and otherwise horrible to people unlike yourself as he is?

The irony is that RBG displays the exact very behavior that he accuses other people of displaying.
