Transgenderism has been prevalent throughout the ages. In the Indian subcontinent they have three recognised genders; male, female and hijra (male-to-female transgenders). Don't let facts get in the way of your folksy wit though.
I think the problem is that a lot of Americans aren't taught much about other cultures and basically know nothing about anything outside of their very narrow worldview.
And also that if an idiot is confronted by someone that calls them on them being stupid, they think that that person represents the polar opposite of their own personal beliefs.
Just like if a Tumblrite is faced by someone who calls them on their weird, made-up gender shit (that really belittles actual gender issues), they assume that they're a psychopathic bigot who wants to invade their safe space and then go to a Trump rally.
In reality, both sides are ****ing morons who nothing about what gender means or implies.
Well, like I just said, it's not necessarily ''new'' information, it's been around for a long time. It's just new to you. Now I don't feel like writing a long-ass post to explain why we now live in a world where transgender rights have to be considered, so I'm going to give a simplified explanation. What makes the current situation right is that transgender people are now allowed to live in freedom without having to worry about being persecuted or berated for their gender. The situation before was wrong because they were not allowed this basic freedom. Let me ask you this: How does transgenderism negatively effect your life in any way? Why would you oppose transgender rights?
Whoa back the truck up son, I was never against any of that. Never even gave it a second thought until recently with all the stuff in the news. Negative? Nah it's all good in my hood.
I am all for every type of people having whatever rights they need to be happy in this broken crusty world, but I do reserve the right to disagree respectfully with that viewpoint, I don't think I have to like the idea if I don't "get it".
That's cool brev, I guess your earlier dismissive statement about transgender rights made me assume that you actively opposed it. Being ignorant of transgender rights and having no interest in learning about them is regretful, but fine as long as it doesn't lead you to actually infringe or protest their rights.
I actually don't actively champion transgender rights because they don't really effect my life in any way. It's just when I see people say incorrect things about them, I'm tempted to speak up.
If one were to assume that from all my dismissive statements one would think I opposed all life on Earth like Fly does. In truth am just simple caveman and make dumb sounds out of mouth before brain can review.
Oh please, if Brexit has taught us anything it's that people in other countries can be ignorant as f*ck too. It's always funny when people from other countries try to act superior, especially if they're from somewhere in the UK.
You quite literally call others morons while being moronic, call others ignorant whilst acting ignorant. Is this another post that isn't meant to be serious?

"A lot of Americans" is hardly ignorant, the way I phrased it makes that clear. I actually got this point from one of my American friends. He literally told me that a lot of Americans know shit-all about other cultures. Don't act so pissy, lad. Are you going to address any of my other points? Or just whinge about how I'm addressing you?
Also, the points I made in those 'unserious' posts were still valid points, you just failed to acknowledge any of them and instead (again) just got upset about my method of address instead. Way to dodge my points, man. You do exactly what you claim I do.
I feel a little better
