Introduce Yourself Thread
« on: June 25, 2014, 08:54:23 AM »
This was a pretty good thread that was going on the old forum, and now that we're at a fresh start and there's been some bolstering towards new activity here, maybe an intro thread would be nice. We all get to know each other slowly though posting, but it always helps me to have a name and face to the posting, even if my memory is kind of terrible at this sort of thing.

This is sort of how I remember the old one being structured, and it was pretty good. Add anything you want to that you feel this is lacking.

For serious though - "I don't care" is the biggest example of cis privilege. Do you self-identify as male? Then you use male pronouns, none of this "well, whatever works" bullshit. Same goes for folks that self-identify as female. Just because you don't care, doesn't mean other folks don't care.

I don't know if that is fair. I don't think anybody said they don't care what other people want to be referred to as, just that they don't care how others refer to them. That seems legitimate to me. Pronouns are important to some people and not as big a deal to others. I understand that being referred to by the wrong pronoun can be very hurtful if you are trans and I think people can respect that and still not be as rigid about what they go by. Honestly,  I think it is a good sign for the breaking down of the gender binary, and a sign that it is not some awful thing to be a woman when cis men aren't offendedd by being called "she"

This is an odd response to me for a few things. For one, he's 17. When I was 17 I'd have like no concept of this sort of stuff, and would also probably respond with "I don't care" in a place that I'm comfortable, where I'd say I use feminine in a place I'm more uncomfortable. And even now, I say that whatever pronouns are used at me is okay because making a big stink and fuss is not a place that I am at yet. And perhaps that's because I don't "pass," and also don't really want to, and I understand the misgendering risk of that except in exclusive corners. How come I didn't get a talking to about this, but you picked on this kid?

Also, "male" pronouns, what the hell is that? It's some basic linguistic shaping to say "masculine" and "feminine" when referring to gender, while saying "male" and "female" for biological sex. I know people trip it up a lot, but it seems weird to use it incorrectly while giving a kid some shit about gender stuff.


Anyhwo, sup Noah, I saw you at PIXfest like a million times and didn't say hey because I'm awkward. Seemed like you were having a good time.
