        Depends on the troony. Some of them just want to be normal women and hate being reminded that they're trans. If they manage to pass then they go stealth, never bring it up, never tell anyone, sometimes they cut off all contact with people who knew them before just so that they don't have to be reminded of their past. One of my ex-girlfriends is like that, when we met she would only tell people she was interested in dating because she still had her penis (I don't care, ass is ass), but after we broke up she finally got the money to get operated in Thailand and just vanished. I never even saw pictures of her before transition, and the one time she found one in a box she immediately burned it before anyone could see it.

      The social zeitgeist is essentially a giant prisoner's dilemma. Everyone knows this shit is moronic and unhinged, but calling it out requires everyone to be on board. If you call it out, others seize the opportunity to turn on you either out of motivation to profit or for fear of reprisal. So everyone puts up with this and pretends to support it. There are people that genuinely do support this sort of mental illness, but it's a minority, especially among companies given how often they decide to turn on this shit and hide it when it interferes with their profits in countries where they openly hate gay and trans shit.

      Imagine you were part of some organization -- like a company or NGO or open-source project -- and one day, some members started demanding you need to end every paragraph (or an equivalent chunk in verbal speech) with a "quack". In IRL speech, you'd have to perform a quack like a duck.
      Now, that is a small, inane, a silly, innocuous thing. But it doesn't really cost you anything to perform, so why not just do it? On the flipside, not acquiescing to this demand -- well, you don't even know what *precisely* would be the consequence, but it'd be disproportionally severe.

      Please comment on this circumstance.
      - would you accept this yourself, no problemo?
      - do you see why some people would have an issue with quacking at a pace once a minute? Can you understand why they don't want do that, even thought it literally just costs them a millisecond of effort more?
      - do you see how this quack-demanding can overall have a certain effect, even if at the end of the day we are just talking about a silly and funny onomatopoeia of a bird sound? In particular, please compare the climate of such quack-organizations with non-quack-organizations. Is there any difference whatsoever?

          In some people, using "they/them" or other pronouns that do not fit the body type (you don't "sell" your newfound womanhood) causes them cognitive dissonance.
          Now, if the brain could be reprogrammed to always remove cognitive dissonance, all'd be fine and dandy. But that's not possible. We don't live in that magic world. So, using these "they/thems" in some people that are not a) true believers or b) completely apathetic about this particular topic, is a constant source of cognitive dissonance. Why is that not a problem that needs to be dealt with?

    As someone who unironically considers themselves woke, I think body type A and B is still fricking stupid.

    The LGBT / trans community differentiates between sex and gender, where gender is whatever but there are only two sexes (intersex isn't a third sex btw), so even by their beliefs there isn't anything wrong by just having a "male" and "female" sex option, and these are clearly stand ins for that. It's not like I can make a chick with a noticeable bulge so what are they even appealing to here? It's just reactionary and doesn't even really do anything to actually affirm trans people anyways.

    The only woke way to really do it would be to have one body type which you can completely customize with masculine or feminine traits in whichever ways you choose.

      LGBT/Trans community is not a problem here. For most LGBT (other than enbies) gender is based mainly on presentation and personal identity/expression, sex is based off of your body type.
      Intersex can indeed be a third sex of sorts but whatever they aren't included here regardless

      The chud community does not recognize male or female sex based off of body type, but only based of karyotype. That is, the chud community would consider type B to be male or female depending on what her genitals looked like at birth......or even if she was born with a vegana but happened to have androgen insensitivity. Its impossible to appease the fanatical chuds, so better to go with "type B" instead.

        That's what they might say but it's not true. You can you present as the opposite sex, probably go as far as using hormones or having surgery, but if you claim you are still cis, this wouldn't be a curveball for LGBT at all. Truthfully, the only thing that seems to determine your gender is a claim in good faith. And your claim doesn't even need a definition.

          >Truthfully, the only thing that seems to determine your gender is a claim in good faith.
          The softest, sweetest part of the LGBT community will say as such...your gender is how you DESIRE to present yourself, even if you are currently unable. So a trans woman might present as a male due to societal pressure, but she's still a woman because if she had a magic button she would want to be seen as a woman.

          I am sympathetic to that view and I don't even disagree with it, but if a tree falls in the forest, how is anyone supposed to know or care? On a practical level, gender is how other people see you. I am 100% sympathetic to people who cannot come out, who cannot access trans healthcare, and I do think they belong in the trans umbrella in some sense the same way closeted gay men in straight relationships are kind of gay in some sense. But you know.

          I don't understand what you mean? A vs. B is obviously an appeal to the left / LGBTQ crowd. This website is literally chud central and they obviously hate anything that obfuscates biological sex.

          >I don't understand what you mean? A vs. B is obviously an appeal to the left / LGBTQ crowd.
          Nope. A vs B is what happens when chuds have redefined gender/sex to be about chromosomes and/or gentialia present at birth and NOT about presentation or body type.
          Chuds are STILL mad because they are ALWAYS mad (persecution complex), they'd be even madder if B said "feminine presenting" and A said "masculine presenting".

          If gender isn't just another word for sex, and it's about your identity, what is that identity based on? How can there exist man and woman identities separate than male and female bodies, without them deriving FROM the physical?
          If gender is a social construct, fine. But that social construct is entirely based on trending behaviours derived from biological reality. Man is a collection of social norms based entirely upon the human being male. They're behaviours, and identity, which will always occur naturally if the biological entity is born as a male, and the same applies to women.
          Ergo, even with the separation between sex and gender, transgender people are just men who are mimicking women and vice versa - they are males who are assuming the identity that derives naturally from female existence.
          Its a fricking paradox no matter how you try to justify it. Whether or not you split sex and gender, you're always going to need to explain why a certain gender naturally occurs in a certain sex nearly 100% of the time, provided access to social media and anime porn is limited, and child abuse is eliminated.

            Are you sure? Lets take pronouns for one example. Are "He/Him" pronouns "derived from" having a penis at birth or having an XY karyotype? Is wearing a tie or taking off your hat indoors related to your penis at birth? Be serious now.

            SOME aspects of manhood are linked to testosterone secondary sexual characteristics. But not all, and I would possibly say not even most nowadays.

              They are, via the historical existence of male and female humans, with different behavioural norms.
              If they weren't based entirely on our biological sex, then why are they even things you can categorise as "masculine" and "feminine" in the first place?
              Why are there even different behaviours, if not for the fact that there are different sexes?
              Sure, cultural norms will also vary. But it's the same thing. Your norms are derived, historically, from your ethnicity. They developed over time in such a way that you can see behaviours and immediately pinpoint the geographic location of a person's ancestry.
              Otherwise, some random Germans would spontaneously start speaking hindi, whilst worshipping quetzcoatl, and cooking tofu, no?
              But that never happens. So how can a male human spontaneously take on the behaviours of a woman?

                Because they are based on our culture. This is why you see "he/him" pronouns in the English speaking world as a "masculine attribute" but in other language spheres you might see no gendered pronouns at all...or even more gendered pronouns in the case of Japanese which has gendered first and second person pronouns.

                > So how can a male human spontaneously take on the behaviours of a woman?
                Because she is a woman but she has a male body. We see this happen all the time btw. Some of them identify as women, some identify as gender non-conforming or third gender.

                Male body means it's a man, not a woman. Male is determined by its exclusive sexual compatibility with female, it's the same logic for male/female USB cables. This is why we say that certain rare animal species can change sex, because their sexual organs work differently, they manage to make it sexual reproduction, hence changing sex.

                This whole troony thing has as its origin point the homosexual lie that the same sex can be compatible with each other, which is the destruction of the act of sex, which then logically will always lead to the destruction of the being of sex itself. Homosexuality is pure wrong.

                It's not that you don't know what exclusive sexual compatibility with a male means, it's that you don't want to admit it. Homosexuality is a spiritual disorder, as opposed to a physical disorder, homosexuals want to do what is wrong, their mind is warped, not their bodies (but their bodies will soon follow, as evidenced by their 20 years lesser lifespan on average).

                The core problem of homosexuality is that it's wrong sexual behavior, the fact that it also steals money through taxes and then lie about it "not affecting anyone" stems from the core problem. If they are willing to commit sexually perverted acts which can kill them and others, they are willing to then lie and steal in the name of these misbehaviors.

              not that anon, not really sure about everything you're driving at, but a man is not just a social category. Some can argue it's not a social category at all. Just because there are social norms for males doesn't mean they are a social category. Really, follow the absurdity you could get into by accepting that a man is mostly a social category, you could extend to this anything. Like you could be a dog by entering the dog's social role.

              Also we had an understanding of male and female before genetics. Your penis just identifies you as male, which is why people used particular pronouns for you and expected you to dress and act certain ways.

                You can extend it to any category that a human being can meaningfully fulfill. There are no large numbers of people living as dogs in society. There are large numbers of males who live as women and females who live as men. Always has been, even across cultures. They may identify as third gender, identify as gender non-conforming, or identify as transgender depending on whatever terminology is in vogue. Almost as if the difference between men and women is a lot more thin than the difference between different species

                Is a German who speaks hindi and Indian?

                No but if a German moves to India and gets citizenship they would be Indian. Your point?

                why stop at human beings? Also more people believing or doing something doesn't make it any more valid logically, like holy shit that's a bad argument.

                Also that's not even true. Transracialism was rejected even though it's just entering the social role of another human race. The difference between races is also a lot less than the difference between sexes.

                >Almost as if the difference between men and women is a lot more thin than the difference between different species

                I'd say the difference between men and women transcends species. Like, I'm a male, and I have a lot more in common with a human female than a squirrel. But if you ask me who is closer to being a woman, me or a female squirrel. I have to pick to the female squirrel. I can't give birth.

                It does mean its more meaningful as a descriptive term and as a sociological phenomenon.
                "Social conservative" is the most illogical dumbass worthless group of all time, but it is still a meaningful group because they are large enough to exert influence on the rest of society

                Fact is that as long as societies have created "genders" to force everyone into, not everyone is going to fit into those "gender" boxes. In every society on Earth, some people will leave the box assigned to them at birth.

                You seriously don't know? Are you this far gone? Everybody that is not evil understands what it means.

                You cannot answer what it means because you know very well you'd end up excluding large amounts of women and girls from your definition. You are worse at defining womanhood than trans people are.

                >No but if a German moves to India and gets citizenship they would be Indian. Your point?
                So does their ethnic history have any bearing, or is it JUST citizenship that makes a person indian/German etc?

                >So does their ethnic history have any bearing,
                Not on whether or not they are Indian, if they choose to honor their German ancestry they can say something like "I am German-Indian"

                You stupid evil liar, if a woman is sterile, let's look why, too small fallopian tubes? Ok whose sex has fallopian tubes? Female, ergo it's a sterile female. You are so evil it's blatant, spitting on logic just to spread your whimsy solipsistic drivel to confuse others, evil means to do wrong on purpose, it's what you are doing.

                Does the same apply if you say you're 'black american' and you move to America, and take on the shared culture?
                Black, after all is just a linguistic function, that doesn't necessarily have biological roots, right? Just like man and woman.

                This has just become a motte and bailey from the left. You haven't had to follow gender norms for a long time and yet the left keeps going with more and more absurd claims, or more commonly, vacuous non-claims about gender to the point where we don't have a definition.

                what does meaningfully mean? Disguise? Because transgender women can't give birth and transgender men aren't as strong as men. Their biological differences and the implications of them are ignored across the board. So what are some other human categories with social roles? Being a child? Being a senior? Being a difference race? Being an amputee? These don't have an accepted trans component even though you could call these social roles tomorrow because they have social roles.

            It's basically because the woke left wants a situation where everyone's identities and lifestyles are equally valid. You could have a transwoman who believes that there are certain feminine and masculine lifestyle choices, and wanted to transition because they identify with the feminine ones. Additionally, you also have other people who think that saying anything is "feminine" or "masculine" is ultimately harmful, and for them, they can can identify as non-binary. These are two separate people with different beliefs, but ultimately need to both equally be affirmed under the same framework. So it's basically a situation where you should simply follow along with what each individual person says they are.

            As an example, "transvestite" is somewhere between offensive and outdated, but if someone tells you "I am a transvestite", it'll be the appropriate term to refer to them as.

    Idk, even trannies give themselves pronouns, but the corporations grifting off them don't care. And the trannies don't care as long as they view it as being on "their side". Hell even nonbinary describe themselves as masc/fem or amab/afab, so yeah, it's quite literally just shallow corporate grifting. Why it hasn't stopped or been rethought is just proof that anything relating to them is untouchable if you value your career.

        It pretends something you know is real isn't real, and makes you complicit in a lie by selecting one.

        This quote is from guy who obviously doesn't like communism but it's stuff useful if you're interested in propaganda regardless of who is doing it.

        "Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”
