Zoe and her five guys are racist. They are only trying to distract gamers from focusing on Ferguson with her heinous distraction.
I've gone through your trans issues tag and you consistently treat "gender" and "sex" as though they are the same. As a psychology major, it is my understanding that sex is physiological and gender is a social construct tied to it, and I have yet to see any reliable source claiming otherwise. Can you explain your position on this matter?
you are born with a biological sex. whether or not that biological sex aligns with your gender is another matter. those that believe their biological sex does not align with their internal gender would be trans. those that choose to be a different gender or are fine with their sex but just want to call themselves a whole new gender “just because” aren’t transgender.
transgender folks are people who are in the process of transitioning or have a strong desire to make their sex, or appearance of sex, align with their gender. that desire can range from mild to very soul-crushingly strong; either way, that desire comes from a discomfort (again, either very mild or strong) that is referred to as dysphoria. a pre-requisite in considering transgender persons treatment, be it hormonal or otherwise, is determining whether or not they have any form of dysphoria whatsoever.
there is a large community on tumblr that is mostly full of preteen/teenaged brats who believe that gender is a choice and that you do not need dysphoria in order to call yourself trans. this community is what we call genderspecials and transtrenders. they usually have made-up pronouns, are self-diagnosed with autism/depression/schizophrenia/bipolar disorder/whatever mental illness is “in” right now, and sport madoka magica and/or homestuck avatars
IN SHORT i went off on a tangent. what were you asking again
