True, true...

It's not like I don't do that to people every chance I get anyway...

Quote:
Gender is an illusion and words are just lies we all agreed on way back when. If you wanna be a boy, be a boy! If you wanna be a girl but have people use masculine pronouns for you, that's valid, too! Edit: And if you're comfortable with who you are, that's fantastic, too! If the best you you can be aligns pretty well with who you already are that's great!

Change your name, change your presentation, change your pronouns as often as you like! Explore who you are and who you want to be. You have no obligation to anyone at all to be the same person you were born as, or who you were yesterday, or even five minutes ago!

I advocate for RADICAL GENDER ANARCY.
No, no, NO! Sex and gender are two completely different things, and this has nothing to do with my “gender”. I don’t care about gender. This is about my SEX. My SEX is female, and it’s not something you can magically change like a gender. I am forced to deal with breasts, that time of the month, and other girl-exclusive problems for as long as I live. To be fair, boys have just as many if not more issues than girls, but I’m still upset. If I could change my sex I would.

TL;DR: Sex and gender are separate. I wish I could change my sex but I can’t. Please stop thinking sex and gender are one and the same.

(This probably originates from how sex is also the word for mating between two partners, and therefore is an “inappropriate” word.)

Long rant, I know, but it’s one of my many pet peeves.

This got real as heck, so I split it into its own topic.



So first I wanna define some things.

Sex, in addition to an action that we're not gonna discuss, is often used to indicate a biological orientation of sorts. It has historically been defined by anatomy, genetics, and body chemistry, and usually divided into a binary, although all of these methods fall short in one fashion or another.

Gender, on the other hand, is a psychological/social construct, usually structured similarly/identically to sex, and often (but not always!) determined by the way one presents or the role one wants to play or the way one was socialised to behave in society. Many of these factors are heavily influenced by a person's sex, so in most individuals these two concepts tend to line up. Some level of... desyncronisation is probably normal, though.


Keeby, if you're actually feeling some level of distress about your biological sex, it's possible it doesn't align very well with your gender identity. That's completely fine if it doesn't. It's true of more people than you might think. However, it can very well cause things like anxiety and depression down the line if left unaddressed. I earnestly, truly recommend reaching out to a trusted adult about it. A school counselor would probably be a good choice. Talking to your doctor at your next checkup might be good. If you have a regular therapist, absolutely bring it up.

Please don't just ignore these feelings, or assume they'll go away, or act like you can just live with them. Even if you can deal now, there's no promise you can deal 5, 10, 20 years down the line. Take steps towards confronting and understanding these feelings now, I implore you.

I don’t go to public school, and I tried therapy two years ago, but it really, REALLY didn’t work out. I don’t really have any trusted adults I could talk to. Not to mention that I’m only 16 so I can’t get the help I need very easily. I need help with a lot of things, but it’s probably easier to wait until I’m an adult.

Besides, my sex is the least of my worries. I only went on a long rant because you got sex and gender mixed up.

I didn't mention sex at all, and my references to gender were as a social construct, which is what it is.

I assure you, gender identity is an issue that weighs heavily on my mind. I would not get them confused.

That’s what happens when there’s only half a dozen active members and there’s hardly any rules.

True, but considering how the site keeps going up and down in terms of activity...

Honestly considering the content of my Facebook you.. probably would have assumed i dropped off the face of the earth until i popped up earlier this year to make an update about how sad and gay i am

...and then after i popped back up for that stuff you should have seen this coming.

It's not a shame at all.

To answer your earlier question, Mastodon is basically a bunch of smaller versions of twitter that can all talk to each other, and which generally don't try to do anything nefarious with your data. It's spread across a bunch of different sites, which usually try to adhere to specific interests: some are for artists, some are for gamers, some are general purpose, one only lets you use the letter "e"? (Don't worry, there's also one where you can use every letter except "e", and all of these different sites talk to each other and allow you to follow people on different sites and stuff like that.

I'm a big fan of it and am avidly awaiting the day when all my friends finally bail on Twitter for Mastodon so I can just use that.
