    [–] Just like JFK, people are mean to Trump lewis_von_altaccount 1 points ago in ENLIGHTENEDCENTRISM

    Dam I wish Trump would visit Dallas

    For legal reasons, that’s a joke.

    [–] Another amazing take by our boy destiny lewis_von_altaccount 2 points ago in ENLIGHTENEDCENTRISM

    If Anarchism is so good why did it kill five hundred trillion people 🤔

    [–] Actually from my grandad lewis_von_altaccount 1 points ago in forwardsfromgrandma

    I’m successful and therefore right

    I think you and Ben Shapiro would get along.

    You’re right, the ideology that thinks that body dysphoria isn’t really a contingent of being trans has historically been the source of much more oppression than the one that has, uh checks notes systemically oppressed and murdered trans people for centuries. Good to know your best argument against ‘gender is socially constructed’ is just ‘no’, though! Speaks highly to your analytical abilities.

    Furthermore, body dysphoria, which a person must have in order to be trans, is anatomical in nature.

    So you’re truscum as well! This keeps getting better and better. I’m sure attempts to strictly delineate who is or isn’t trans will never be used in any sort of negative way to impair the trans community in the future.

    But furthermore, other than the comment about body dysphoria, your current counterpoint basically corresponds to ‘nuh-uh’. I see all those years of reading queer theory served you well.

    And yeah. I don’t really see how ‘gender is socially constructed’ conflicts at all with ‘many trans people experience disconnect with their birth sex.’ Care to explain?

    So I see you’ve come to the conclusion that there are bad people on both sides. Congratulations! You’ve reached the same level of political ideology as a fourteen-year-old.

    I’m trans. I believe that gender is a social construct, too. What you’ve apparently failed to grasp is that ‘socially constructed’ doesn’t mean ‘invalid’ or ‘not real’. Gender is a social construct, but so are things like nations, or race, and it doesn’t mean that everyone who says it is secretly hoping to put all trans people in a gulag. It’s not immutable, it’s not imposed on the human race from outside, and thus it is changeable and fluid.

    Or, maybe you could look at the parties. You could look at allies, you could look at what they believe. You could look at the policies proposed by Democrats when it comes to trans rights, and you could look at the policies proposed by Republicans when it comes to trans rights. You can look at anti-trans legislation, and look at where it’s coming from. Frankly, you could read actual works written by advocates for both the far left and far right, and try to consider which is more likely to see you as a human being.

    You claim there’s ‘more than just two wings’, and yet all you’ve done throughout this entire argument is drawing false equivalence between two ideological wings without ever stating exactly what makes you so sure they’re equivalent. Transphobia sucks, I get it. The left isn’t free of it, either. But to claim that the fact that some percentage of an opposition party holds to a phobia is no excuse to pretend that it ‘doesn’t respect you’, or to pretend that it’s somehow an equal to the party that is trying to fucking enshrine that phobia into US law.

    Centrists are awful.

    just because you fail to understand a catchphrase of a certain subset isn’t a political ideology doesn’t mean that the political wing that is actively trying to restrict your rights in the houses of government isn’t far worse

    [–] Actually from my grandad lewis_von_altaccount 1 points ago in forwardsfromgrandma

    True centrism is looking at a political wing with a minority of transphobes which have pushed for queer rights for decades and a political wing which is actively sabotaging trans rights in the houses of government as we speak and going ‘yup, these are both equally bad’

    [–] Actually from my grandad lewis_von_altaccount 1 points ago in forwardsfromgrandma

    a ‘centrist’ that posts in r/conservative

    Wow, never seen one of those before!

    [–] Actually from my grandad lewis_von_altaccount 1 points ago in forwardsfromgrandma

    Unlike the right, which is just openly transphobic as fuck.

    Say what you will about Hitler, but at least he killed Hitler.

    [–] Smug liberal wants to bring back Jim Crow 2.0 lewis_von_altaccount 3 points ago in ShitLiberalsSay

    God, Idiocracy makes me so mad in retrospect. Could it be that poverty makes access to reproductive care more difficult, and that it pretty much always goes down with wealth? No, it’s because the stupid dirty poors just inherently breeds more.
