What's cisgender ?
It's got to be one of my favourite words. It simply means I was born male, I associate with being male and am attracted to females.

https://en.wikipedia.org wiki Cisgender
Cisgender (sometimes cissexual, often abbreviated to simply cis) is a term for people whose gender identity matches the sex that they were assigned at birth. For example, someone who identifies as a woman and was assigned female at birth is a cisgender woman. The term cisgender is the opposite of the word transgender.

Whoa there buck-a-roo Assigned at birth? That doesn't appear to be how it works now. You choose your gender at some point in life then you are one of over 250 different genders that you choose.

Assigned at birth just basically means whatever the DR says you are when you were born and what it on your birth certificate. Yeah it's gotten a little wieird but to be perfectly honest I could give 2 shits what someone associates with as long as they are a good person.

What I have problem with is parents that experiment with their kids. We have one family here that did that and I've actually seen them out shopping etc. It's a little strange.... Just Google "Baby Storm"

I think "walk like a woman but talks like a man" was Lola by the Kinks....

But maybe is was just something else..... who knows nowadays.

I was at a Pride event a few years ago and had a nice conversation with a high pitch voiced guy about dogs (I was there with a dog rescue). Dude was transgender but what difference did it make? He liked dogs, and wanted to adopt one.

Decision
I'll throw this out there.

If you're nothing special then going transgender makes you someone interesting or at least worth talking about.

As an attention seeking device it's pretty drastic but an effective one.

The thing that puzzles me is how do you know that you want to be a woman if you've never been one ?

Is it because the alternatives are limited ?

Maybe it's just an attempt at elevation when you know you're just a very confused average person.

Probably a lot more sketchy figures lurking around out of uniform. Nerd emoticon
What a small world we live in. I have been called the Nazi before. Mainly because I'm from South America and people think that South America is Argentina.
Portuguese-speaking Nazis? Hmm...

Yeah, I'd heard Argentina was a bit more German after the war.... Nerd emoticon

BTW, principal called me back to explain what was up...and my stupid cell phone failed to let me know I had messages, so only following up today. Looks like another round of phone tag.
I hear you can get good sausage and schnitzel in Argentina. The military didn't seem to gain much though when Great Britain spanked them not all that long ago and proved payback is a bitch.

Let us know how the call goes, will ya?
In Italy it is common opinion that those born in Latina (my city) are predominantly fascist ideologue because in 1932 it was the symbolic city of fascism (it was called Littoria) and still today we are marked by this thing.
Someone still today takes advantage of magnifying to make a kind of "architectural political tourism" because there are many architectural works (also studied in many universities in the world) of a style called functionalist rationalism combined with neo-Roman classicism.
I introduced this argument to say that often the patterns are not the meaning and vice versa, for everything that is discussed ... mmmh ... I do not know if the translation renders the meaning of my words well.

Bonus
I saw a very interesting interview with Germaine Greer the other day and she was talking about transgenderism but more specifically Bruce Jenner's transformation into Katelyn.

Her belief was that previously he had seen the amount of coverage that the rest of the Kardashian's were getting and wanted a bigger slice* of the cupcake so to speak.

How I wish that I had one percent of her level of thinking.

May we live in interesting times. It looks we are...

I know no politics here however it is interesting that the impeachment proceedings have really now started in the US. What pisses me off is I know we can't have a civil discussion here about politics . So not going to say thing beyond I find the news interesting.

Yes, right ... in my city we are at 50% of recycling ... something is changing here too; everything put together leads to a better quality of life.

Meh :-\

Yeah we DO need to do our part and every little bit helps but global warming I'm still a little confused on. Back in the 70's it was global cooling we were worried about. The planet has ALWAYS gone through cycles. Still recycling is good and not trashing the planet I'm all for. It's the countries like China and India that are really polluting the planet. We like our stuff though and we like it cheap...

That is for CO2 though. Look at the water sheds and basic air quality.

And what is the correct CO2 number we should have. No one can say

As a guy, born as a guy, who has always liked the ladies (modern nomenclature cisgender heterosexual male), I can't fathom wanting to change what I feel strongly about.

But not everyone else is as strongly programmed as the vast majority of us... which leads to searching for your identity. It's probably been done for centuries, but behind closed doors and not publicly discussed.

Somehow the transgender community has been very vocal about their struggle, and in some ways possibly it's misleading as to how many people are truly looking at their identity as not correctly assigned at birth. But at least we're taking their struggle seriously
