Most of the trans-identifying folk seemed like your typical Tumblrina stereotype - hair dyed in unnatural colors, short-cut hair, flashy/"tumblr aesthetic" clothes, into anime, etc. Alot of the gay men were extremely nice and chill, though. I had joined the music caucus they made, and although I felt kind of awkward since most of them were from the caucus for gay men, and it was just me and like two other girls, they were very accepting and fun to be around. I almost became friends with some of them, but then I was kicked out from the whole club shortly after, because of those other people.

Oh, I forgot to mention that this whole thing actually started because I called another trans girl I was talking to "dude" in a text. She flipped out on me, saying I "should never call a trans girl that". Yeah, I got called transmisogynistic by her because of that. I've treated "dude" like a gender-neutral term now for the longest time and called alot of people that, regardless of gender. One of my closest friends has identified as non-binary and we call eachother "dude". I apologized and said I wouldn't call her that, but expressed disagreement with how she said it's harmful to all trans women and she said I was banned from her caucus. (That funnily enough, I had never been apart of in the first place. lmao) She would try to school me on Bulgaria, calling it "fascist", like she knew so much better about it. I told her we were actually one of the only Eastern European countries to offer refuge to Jews. (Can read about it here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifes...93f_story.html)

These people really try to speak over you about everything...Even your own country. ffs
Yeah that seems to bother some people, but I see it as gender neutral too. I understand being bothered by certain things because I feel the same way about some stuff, but there are definitely a lot of transwomen who don't care about that word so you can't dictate how people talk to someone else. Reminds me of this:

I don't really know anything about Bulgaria but I think people like this tend to use hyperbolic language and since nationalism is kind of increasing everywhere they probably read a news story about something and decided it's a fascist country.

I vaguely recall she may have also told me to stop using the �� emoji, because she said it was fascist. Probably got offended because Trump does that or something.
Oh yeah from what I remember a while back 4chan were trying to troll people into believing it was a racist symbol and then some right-wing social media personalities joined in and I guess there are people who actually fell for that

In fairness the mainstream media fell for it too lol..

They cede so much power to a bunch of mostly unemployed autistic nerds.... But 4chan is mostly responsible for all culture now because people at the bottom of society create culture (similar to how 'black culture' is cool.) Well should note this isn't an inherent trait of societies I don't think, just has been in Western countries for a while now.

Off topic but it's why they were worried about The Joker as well:


The wretched world we’re living in at present was not an unlucky war of fate; it was an economic and political decision made without consulting the enormous human population that it would most drastically affect. If we would have it otherwise, if we’d prefer a future that we can call home, then we must stop supporting — even passively — this ravenous, insatiable conservative agenda before it devours us with our kids as a dessert. - Alan Moore

That was a great read. Thanks for sharing! These sort of people definitely like to eat their own, so I'm not that surprised.

Or they probably heard something in school about Bulgaria being an ally of Germany and Japan during WWII so they assumed Bulgaria = Fascist. Which is funny, because Bulgaria also then became socialist from being close allies with the USSR...who hated fascists.

Wow.. I think it goes to show how their ideology is so ridiculous that they can't even tell eachother apart anymore. lol 4chan must be having a field day with this. It's very ironic, but sometimes I feel like 4chan has been done more good for the world than these people.

Like when they sent that war vet birthday cards:

Or when they got Pitbull to go to Alaska (Though it seems it was initially just meant as a prank, but everyone seemed to have a great time):

Eh, mixed feelings of whom i want to mention. They're not bad people but they sure did something to hurt out of nowhere, and quite insensitive about it. I distance myself from everyone so as not to discover truly horrible people.

I think right now is a good time for me to comment on this because my mind is relatively clear. Sometimes I feel like it isn't fair to label people "bad people" because most of the "bad people" I have ever known have never really changed. Which to me suggests that they're not capable of it. Which probably means they can't help it. It's just how they are. Which (I know) we don't want to accept as an excuse and maybe it isn't any excuse but it might just be reality.

Like I don't know many bad people who think they're bad people. I mean some do but most people think their behavior is justified in one way or another. I think if their mind automatically justifies bad behavior it's going to be very hard for them to consciously control it through thick and thin. It doesn't mean I won't hate it though. Obviously people can really suck to the point to where it just feels like they're doing it on purpose. People are so weird.
