Hah! ... Gay.
Respecting the identity of others is so much fun!
It makes people happy, and lets people learn about things they didn't know about!
A gender is something personal, and everyone is allowed to express it in their own unique way.
I mean, it doesn't hurt anyone, and respecting genders only makes people who have genders other than the ones you know makes them happy.
And if we can have happy people and no one hurt, I think it's easy to know what to do!

I'll admit that I'm probably not as up to date on this issue as I should be. But I agree that people should be respected for who they are. Someone's gender identity doesn't harm anyone else and as far as I'm concerned, every one is valid and beautiful in their own way. Thank you for posting this.

I'm still, as a non binary person, learning more and more every day! Being willing to learn is the biggest step, so I'm happy to know you're taking it in the right direction :D

You're awesome for posting this. Everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and respect, and it pains me to know that some people, including some very close friends of mine, get treated like dirt for something that they really can't help. So it's really good to know that there are those who do understand.

I recognize the third gender pony, the pink one, but who are the rest?
Saucy
1 year, 10 months ago
Red is agender, yellow is androgyne, green is demigirl, and black hair is genderfluid!
Pretty much all of them have different variations, so it's best to look it up when wondering (i.e: I knew about genderfluid as a gender, but had no idea what the symbol was)

Nah.. ignoring the issue doesn't make it go away.
as for learning, I'd recommend looking up trans (most specifically non binary (or gendequeer)) resources. I'm not a good teacher, and you'd learn a lot more with things with people who actually are good at talking :B

I don't want them to stop existing.
I want them to not live in denial so we can study the mental illness further and respect it as such.
Hopefully that will lead to them existing more often, instead of only 60 percent deciding to continue to exist!
But we can play pretend and not hurt anyones feelings if you like. That's probably more important than people blowing their brains out or hanging themselves.
Saucy

The only people living in denial are those who see other people's identity as a mental illness.

I'm not saying it's a mental illness, and i 100% understand transgenderism and agender, but some of these genders are confusing. Don't get me wrong, if i where to meet someone with one of these other genders i'd be nice and happy and respectful, but i personally think some of these are just nonconformists trying to feel special or different.

What is a demigirl? and isn't andrognye just you're appearance? Just because you're androgynous and people can't make an educated guess on your sex organs, it becomes a new gender all together?
Saucy
1 year, 10 months ago
Honestly, gender is what you make it. It's what you're comfortable with. It's like everything else about your, but it's not really visible. Some people will change their apparence to match, but it's to everyone's discretion. And to be honest, if people are serious about it, and not making jokes, then their identity is what it is. It doesn't hurt them, and it doesn't hurt others, so there is no reason to makes rules about it :P

Demigirl is someone who identifies partially as a girl, but not entirely. To them (speaking from what I know), being a girl doesn't feel right, but not being a girl doesn't feel right either. A little of it is what they're comfortable with.
Androgyne is also a feeling! I have a friend who identifies androgyne as being their gender, seeing as this is how they're comfortable to give a name to their feeling. They feel like a mix of male and female, as much on a physical level than an emotional one.

Wait....why is gender "what people make of it"
Saucy

Because it's a personal experience. No one really lives it the same.

But then people want to put themselves in boxes and use special labels to demand recognition for a box they put themselves in. I am happy you're not conflating sex with gender but I know too many people in my real life doing this simply because it seems in vogue. Why use a label when humans are far more complex than a string of tags or keywords?
Saucy
1 year, 10 months ago
Ok, then how do we tell people that we're not men or women when a VERY high percentage of people we meet will decide between one or the other for us, if we don't have a word for it?
misterlonelyfox
1 year, 10 months ago
Should we make everyone wear name tags with their preferred pronouns and genders. Should culture norms be that you walk up and introduce with name, age (real or other as transage is thing), gender, race (or trans race) and income/ level of privilege. Why would you want yourself devalued to a what rather than a who for the sake of simplicity of identity of demographics you happen to fall under. You are you, a talented artist/illustrator that draws all kinds of sexy peeps, someone that contributes to culture. What you do is far more important to most people than what you are.
Saucy
1 year, 10 months ago
I'm an artist, yes, but before that I'm a person.
And I'm a person who has to deal with bullshit from people who won't accept that I'm not the gender they think I am, and see it as a personal attack that I'd rather put a label on myself than live my life pretending to be someone I'm not.

All I want is for people to be allowed to be who they are, to label themselves the way they want it, and not be questioned for it. If you don't want to label yourself, great! It's up to you to decide if you're comfortable with it!
But many people like myself find comfort in being able to put a word on the way we feel.
misterlonelyfox

The danger comes from the current issue of in group out group mechanics. I'm sympathetic or even empathic to feeling like you take shit for something that feels right or that you think you have no control over. None of this was an attack on you just on what I think is a bad idea trying to spread itself like an ideology. The attempt was never meant to cause harm to you simply a poor attempt at a counter point it would seem.. A question I would pose. Why did a word give youcomfort about something about yourself?

This is cute and a nice piece. c:

I do also have to smile at the still acceptance of the male/female. I've got this friend who is all for the rights of other genders and stuff but then if it comes to someone who is "cishet" she goes off the deep end with anger/judgement...and I think that's sorta wrong. I just always felt like it was the same idea of not being able to pick and choose what you are. xox

I've not seen most of these symbols but I like the way they look~

I do like how you didn't bother to give as much time to the regular male and female ones.

But that aside... there is some issue that I believe this doesn't account for, and you can see this in the comments on this submission. And in abundant amounts in the comments on the submission that you are directing this one toward... My comment is more so about the topic than the submission.
Gender dysphoria is actually a mental condition. It's a nasty thing. I've seen it personally in a lot of people because the internet is where people that have it go to vent and either act miserable publicly without shame or attempt to feel better in the comfort of their friends. Because, again, they're normally too ashamed to do it in person with people they know in real life. It drives people into depression, and even to levels of self harm and the harm of others. It's not something you just respect and it gets better... It's a thing where people need help. Either to come to terms with whom they are, or to transition into someone they are comfortable with being. And It needs study. I don't actually know that those two things are solutions. I'm just making guesses. We don't know enough about this disorder because it's disrespectful to actually call it a problem, and study it for solutions...
And, people making up genders and demanding that people respect them is also not helping the issue... They're just being the nonconformist crowd. (Making up some third gender is only something that people whom... Well, I don't even know why someone would do this beyond being a snowflake, or they need some word as a band-aid for their confusion about who they are, but I know that's not the whole reason for everyone. Like I said, this begs for more study. But, back to the topic.) People are not static beings. Everything you do and experience changes who you are. Every single person in everything they do is plotted out on the spectrum from masculine, to feminine. There are only those two. Because there are only two sexes. With everything in between being either genetic defect or caused via artificial means. All third genders are just plots on the graph between masculine and feminine.(The spectrum is nearly infinite, are there infinite genders?) But heaven forbid you point this out because it might offend someone over the fact that gender is on some level tied directly to physiology, whether you like it or not.

And, just in case, lets not touch on gender nonconformity or sexuality. Those are different topics.

I've always likened gender to colour. There are some fairly deep parallels you can draw between the two.

For example, we acknowledge the existence of both purple and violet, despite the existence of both red and blue.

Purple and violet are actually different colours, even though they're usually treated as the same thing. Violet, true violet, is a specific range of wavelengths, whereas purple is the combination of red and blue.

The important thing to show here is that we treat both of these colours as distinct from red and blue regardless of whether they have red or blue as an actual component. We could, if we wanted, ignore the existence of purple and talk about things only in terms of red and blue, but it would not only destroy nuance and specificity, it would erase violet from the spectrum. (And let's not even get into green right now.)

Sex and gender are enormously complex in how they're used, and it's very difficult, given the state of the art we know in biology, to define sex and gender in binary ways. Furthermore, we are not chained to nature. Nobody clamoured to talk about bronze only in terms of copper and tin; we understood that the alloy we created has different, unique properties that required its own word. Nobody refuses to see purple except in terms of blue and red. There is no reason not to do the same with gender. I don't see what the "defective" or "artificial" nature of these conditions has to do with anything (and I would disagree that "defective" is a label we should apply to intersex people, who are at best tangential to this discussion and at worst a political football to kick around, so let's not go down that route). We exist; we should acknowledge that we exist in our language.

Beyond that, show me the biological basis of skirt-wearing. Of the colour pink. Of politeness and emotional range. Of any of the myriad things that we gender on a daily basis. There is no such basis; we say these things are gendered because we stereotype people who look a certain way to have a certain range of actions, and define exceptions as aberrant. It's a choice that to many of us is completely subconscious and automatic, but it is a choice, and we can choose to do something else.

I would like to point out that these arguments you've forwarded aren't new or original nor are they any more effective than they were the first dozen times we heard it. The "offense" you might see at hearing them is the result of having to litigate our own existence, not only with multiple people, but in the same way, Groundhog Day-style, and rarely having the chance to move beyond an exceedingly basic lesson about what gender is. Trust me, you'd be offended too if the popular opinion about some part of your identity was that it didn't exist, and you had to spend a truly shocking amount of your time explaining it to people.

Your position requires an understanding of sixth grade biology. Ours requires a university-level understanding of biology. Guess which one represents reality better.

In short, we're ready to move on from this. We want to be done with this argument. We're just waiting for knowledge to propagate, which is, well, why I'm writing this instead of writing you off.

Look, I'm genderfluid, which is not only not male or female but not even any one thing, I'm all over the place. Drop me a private message if you care to learn something about how we "confused" people live. I'll see what I can do.

I suck at explaining with words, so I do pictures, and it all feels so simple to me!
I'll never understand why it offends people that we just want to be allowed to live. Taking our side only makes happy people, and takes away from no one.
We don't WANT to fight for those rights, but we don't have a choice.

Ok, lets liken this to color. This is almost the same thing as someone whom is unhappy with how ethnic races defines them. So, they make up a new race around their own skin, hair, and eyes. As a person. You're fully entitled to believe and think this. Even to express it openly to others. But expecting recognition from others and the system is unrealistic. The problem is not that people use third genders to define themselves. It's that they try to force other people to refer to them as third genders.

And, I had much more typed out but for some reason the page refreshed an I lost it. So I can't be bothered to redo it all... just one thing.

Men liking skirts and the color pink has nothing to do with gender as defined. It's simply gender nonconformity. Which I already said has no place in this conversation. It has nothing to do with any third genders and not really not much to do with the person's gender whom is wearing the skirt, either. That's just a perceived stereotype. I literally said not to bring this up...

You... realize that was a metaphor, correct? I'm not actually talking about ethnicity when I talk about colour?

"Let's talk about colour" doesn't actually address anything I said in my analogy. We're not talking about colour, as in red and blue; we're talking about colour, as in black and brown. It was an interesting rhetorical move to dismiss my entire analogy under the guise of discussing it, but unfortunately, we're in a textual environment where anyone can look slightly above your words and see that you're just straight-up refusing to talk about the same thing I'm talking about. It's not a good look.

Any argument should, ideally, be able to move from mutually-agreed-upon first principles using ironclad logic to an inescapable conclusion. I showed how social constructions work by talking about colour, because there's a point to be made about the words we use for a concept versus the actual raw data of that concept, and then applying that point to gender. Race cannot be used in a similar way, because race is not only biosocial but inherited, constructed using such concepts as the One Drop Rule (as odious as that rule is, it is part of the history of race and its legacy is still felt in contemporary discussions of ethnicity and racial identity). You do not inherit your parents' genders. you do inherit their ethnicity. Therefore, I'm sorry, race is irrelevant to this discussion and you just wasted a paragraph bringing it up.

In design, there is such a thing as a design language, which is a series of decisions that are intended to convey an idea. Google's material design has a language built around cards, and physical metaphors are intended to show priority: A higher card has a shadow over a lower card, which puts it more "in front", and therefore makes it more prominent and gives it a higher priority.

Gendered presentation is also a design language. The colour pink, the skirt, and so on, these are designed to convey information about the gender and personality of the person associated with it, regardless of whether we think they should or not. I don't particularly consider this to be an ideal situation, but I also don't deny that it exists, and that's the important thing here: Gender, all of gender, includes the things you would rather sweep under the rug. Without this as a starting point, it's impossible to move forward, because we are working from two different sets of first principles, which means our arguments don't actually exist in the same universe of mutually-agreed-upon facts.

There is no definition of gender at the moment, if we don't agree on one (which is why I don't attempt to define gender, except to say that it's not biological — a strict definition of gender isn't actually necessary for my argument to work). It's also not a good look to assert that your definition is not only true, but to further assert my position is incorrect based on the assertion that your definition is true. Your idea of what gender is does not survive contact with reality, which doesn't have the rough edges sanded off. At the very least, my argument can be said to attempt to explain and account for those rough edges; yours literally asserts they either don't exist or don't count.

You remember when I said I've had this argument before? It means I already know how to counter these arguments, because I've heard them all before, yes, including the racial analogy. I know how to argue such that it actually means something to people who may not understand how a concept that is largely invisible to them actually works. I've had far more practice at this than you have, and I also have the advantage of being correct and more knowledgeable.

You can learn something, or you can stick your head in the sand while the world moves on without you. The choice is entirely up to you.

Base Assumptions and demanding people act the way you see them to act is detrimental to society and not fixing it.
The way one legally performs shouldn't be up to the interference of others, but that individual.

I don't understand why people think it's harmful to be who you are, to identify as you see yourself.
I'm not a feminist (And I suppose peeps can debate me on why I should be), but even I'm baffled by arguments on this.

An obsession with "tradition" which in itself is an absurdity, because society always evolves and always changing.
I already recently tried to wrap my head around why it's so important to point out something is a "mental illness" because it is "abnormal" behavior.

Than if this is a mental illness, so is being a furry. So is obsessing over your favorite waifu in anime. So is ALOT of things people do that isn't "normal". Fuck, what even IS normal?

Er, BTW, I like this because it's challenging me and also, I kind of glad that people have countered the infamous politics of another furry with their own infamous politics. This is creating a balance and ruining the dominance one voice would have. I don't want people to leave cause this site's style is convenient for me and I really don't want it to be dominated by just one ideology. It would really suck.
