    Yeah, well, we still live in a world where most cis folk see trans men and women as their assigned sex, and think non-binary people are simply attention-seeking snowflakes. If people don't want to change, they won't.[/QUOTE]

    I wouldn't have been as mad if they not just written an article about pronoun usage in media, and how they are careful about pronouns. :bang:

    Really though, they write this, and then there's this piece of shit.. It this kind of stuff that makes my blood boil sometimes..

    I know right? It's totally ridiculous. I feel bad for the person that the article was profiling.

    It must be a bad thing that I am far more curious then outraged. Not that I'm not outraged, I am just so curious about what ethical reasons they could have and how they would explain them.

    You can still refer to me as the cat :slight_smile:

    I'm curious as well, but at the same time, looking at it from a journalistic perspective, that person volunteered their time, and put themselves out there. only to have a line like that included at the end of their profile. I'm more frustrated than anything I guess.

    I have mixed feelings about missing class, but I guess I can't help it today - I'm not feeling well :icon_wink

    Just randomly hit me, but at one point this evening at group we were looking over a chart that had all sorts of different examples of volunteering activities in different columns. For one of them, I somehow managed to misinterpret the phrase "Recover Chair Seats," meaning reupholstering, as 'retrieving' them....

    Naturally I wondered, "What does retrieving chair seats have to do with volunteering?" Damn you, English.... :dry:

    Why does everything turn to shit all at once, just when you thought you had got your life sorted? Always the same :frowning2:

    At this point, I'm starting to wonder if I'm just waiting for something that's never going to happen. I think I am.

    So, I'm thinking of confessing to my crush [the word still doesn't seem suitable enough] this Sunday. While I'm not experiencing anxiety, I'm still very apprehensive. However, what advantage could I possibly get out of not saying anything? Honestly, I'm expecting to be turned down but still have a friendship, but am really hoping that won't be the case.

    However, if he is capable of returning my feelings, I've no fucking idea how I'll react. x____x

    I've heard that coming out to your crush is bad when admitting you have a crush on them, especially males because they tend to be more insecure about their sexuality, but good luck coming out.
