Thanks Custy, for trying to help clarify what I said to this willfully ignorant twit.
It seems that I was spot-on about ydg from the start, and things haven't changed so far. Ostensibly, ydg is here for a rational discussion, but there's such an obvious psychologically f*cked overtone from ydg, that any rational discussion on the subject is drowned out.
I am just...speechless. This is the same crap that civil rights activists, feminists, gay rights activists, and atheists have always dealt with. Please tell me, how is it helpful?
First off, you're completely wrong. My post was a wonderful comment on how you're coming across as a person, and said nothing about your cause, sexuality, race, or religious beliefs. You're being a prick, and I don't care if you were born wanting to be an elephant, a robot, or a piece of cheese.
Secondly, it's helpful to post when one can (probably) accurately describe the psychological patty-cake happening.
Third, you deserved to get called out for being such a prick. Even a cursory glance at information on transsexuals shows that there's not really any consensus on much of anything about them, even within the communities. It's as if you have your own particular flavor of definitions, social niceties, and philosophies that we're automatically supposed to know. Kinda like Christians that come here.
You admitted not being informed about transsexuals until now, and yet you're so quick to judgment.
What, beyond your asinine behavior, did I judge? What the F*CK did I judge about transsexuals? Show me, or apologize for being an idiot, and a prick.
I must say that I'm very disappointed in the discussion so far.
If I had written what you've written. I would be as well.
I'm sorry if I sound like I'm getting on my high horse, but I expected so much better from a group of science-loving, self-described rationalists.
No you're not. You're patronizing us by even saying this. It's patently obvious that you, whether consciously or not, need us to hate on you for being a transsexual, and you'll get that hatred by being a prick so you can justify your continued meowling of "You're a transphobe!".
Remember last year when we were all debating NotAshamedOfChrist? We provided rational arguments and pointed him to the scientific support for them. But, as it were, it went in one ear and out the other. He just kept coming back with the same arguments. If that's not willful ignorance, then what is? Unfortunately, that is exactly what I'm seeing here from several posters like Francesco, Nzo, and swmr1.
You have your little story you want to tell, and you'll pitch a b*tch-fit until you get the hate you expect/want/need from us.
Honestly, willful ignorance on something as inconsequential and ambiguous as transsexuality? Blow me. I'm ignorant because I just haven't cared up to this point, nor have I commented in any way that would suggest I'm not open to learning about it.
Those who are debating me keep resorting to ad hominem attacks
Beat yourself in the face with your keyboard until you understand what the f*ck you're saying. Seriously, just don't stop. Willful ignorance my *ss - at least learn the definitions of the words/phrases you're using before calling US ignorant.
Basically, go fuck yourself.
(I f*cking dare you to call anything here 'ad hom(inem)', clown)
