Is this because, and I don't want to sound rude, that you think you are trans but don't want to come out as such?
Well, he has PM'd me, and apparently, he wishes he were trans, and would like to change his gender identity (from cis man to trans woman) if he were able to successfully, but still leans toward the former.

PMs just sent to both of you. Smiley Indeed, as a woman, hopefully you can especially understand where exactly I am coming from here, ClintonianCake! Smiley

Yes, this is certainly completely correct! Smiley Indeed, as I have already previously stated elsewhere here, what I would ideally like to do is to feminize both my body and my face (specifically by permanently getting rid of as much of my body hair and facial hair as possible and by getting forehead feminization surgery--if I'll actually have spare money to do all of this, that is) as well as to wear certain female clothing on a regular or semi-regular basis. Smiley However, even after I will do all of this, I would certainly have thoughts along the lines of "I wish I was her" whenever I will see a (tall) lesbian or lesbian-leaning woman. Sad Indeed, I certainly wish that gender identity was a choice; however, unfortunately it isn't actually a choice (well, not with current technology, anyway). Sad

Also, Yes, I certainly consider being a trans-woman to be superior to being a feminine eunuch (at least in an ideal sense--as in, if we will live in an ideal world). However, I am certainly not a trans-woman; indeed, I (unfortunately) simply don't feel female. Sad Frankly, I certainly wish that I had the ability to change this; however, alas, I certainly (and unfortunately) cannot do this (at least not with current technology, that is)! Sad

Aw, what the hell, I'll do it:


Age: 20
Gender: Male
Race/ethnic compostion: White/Middle Eastern; 100% Caucasian
Religion: Agnostic
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 180, for anyone who cares
Location: Sacramento, soon to be Phoenix
Where you were born: See Above
Occupation: Student
Person you most admire: Emma Goldman
Favorite Band: AC/DC
Favorite President: Abraham Lincoln
Favorite Sports team: San Francisco Giants
Your other interests: Politics, Baseball, steamy encounters that end in sexual congress

I've lurked here for a solid six years at this point. I enjoy a good martini every now and then. In addition, I follow politics like a blood sport. Bit of an odd person. If I had to describe my favorite genres of music, for example, the first would be classical and the second would be metal. I am Bisexual, if you were wondering.

Am I interesting? You may very well think that. I couldn't possibly comment.
Out of curiosity--what kind of Middle Eastern ancestry do you have?

Also, why do you like Emma Goldman so much?
1. A mixture of Armenian and Kurdish heritage. I consider both to be part of the Mideast. The two make up approximately 40% of my ethnic background, the remainder being a mix of Irish, Italian, and Lithuanian.

2. Despite our very different political views, I see Goldman as a revolutionary in a time where Nationalism and social Conservatism predominated the political discourse. For example, she supported ideas such as free love without sinking into Eugenics as many others of the time did. She opposed the draft, militarism, and freedom of speech.

I do not support her views on capitalism or on anarchism, however she was a counter cultural thinker for a very insular age.

Thanks for asking Smiley
1. Very interesting! Cheesy

2. Very good point(s)! Smiley

Also, though, I would like to point out that I don't consider all forms of nationalism to be bad. Rather, I consider "exclusive" nationalism (such as the type that was practiced in Nazi Germany, where loyal German Jews were not given full equality or even basic human dignity) as well as violent and militaristic nationalism to be bad. However, I appear to see nothing bad about events such as the unification of Italy. Smiley

Sigh ... indeed, I might as well publicly admit it: I want to get an orchiectomy for sterilization purposes due to the fact that all non-drastic forms of birth control, including vasectomies, can and sometimes do fail. Indeed, even vasectomy failure certainly isn't an acceptable excuse to avoid paying child support. Heck, even child support insurance contracts might get struck down by some judge(s) on grounds of public policy.

Indeed, I certainly want to achieve greater equality (in practice) with cis-women in regards to reproduction and child support. After all, unlike myself, many cis-women can get abortions in response to an unplanned pregnancy. (Also, No, trust certainly isn't an acceptable option for me since a woman can promise abortion or adoption in the event of an unplanned pregnancy and change her mind in regards to this later on.) Thus, the next best thing for me is to literally get an orchiectomy. Indeed, nowadays we thankfully have both testosterone HRT and estrogen HRT (depending on their preference) for eunuchs to use in order to avoid getting and dealing with nasty conditions such as osteoporosis. Smiley

There--now you know why exactly I want to get an orchiectomy. Smiley

You're getting an orchietomy for the purpose of preventing pregnancy? I'm sorry, but that seems like an overreaction.

Well...quite frankly, while I may agree with your disatisfaction concerning child support policy, the chances you will be personally affected are extremely unlikely, especially if you got a vasectomy.

Furthermore, do you believe more men should follow your example? Or if not, why?

Unless they're negligent, they have no reason to pay. Is vasectomy failure negligence? No, it is not. This does not diminish my point. There may be horror stories, but the vast majority of people are fine. Vasectomy failures happen at a rate of about 3/1000-1/100, depending on the source you believe. In addition, it's also possible a women could use paternity fraud, rather than actual vasectomy failure.

Let me use an analogy.  Naegleria Fowleri is an amoeba that is highly prevalent in soil and water. This amoeba, if it attaches itself to your olfactory nerve, will travel up to your brain and will eat your brain cells, resulting in an almost incurable condition called Primary Amoebal Meningitis. There have been 138 official cases of the disease, although thousands may have occurred because most cases are determined only by autopsy. The only way to completely and absolutely guarantee that you will never, ever contract this disease is to avoid any and all swimming in fresh water, even water with chlorine as the amount of chlorine may not be sufficient to kill the amoeba. Would you advocate avoiding a regular suburban pool out of fear for this disease?

1. They can certainly volunteer to pay, though.

2. Please look up the law of truly large numbers, though.

3. Yes, but some vasectomies genuinely do fail! Sad

4. No, I wouldn't. After all, orchiectomy plus my choice of HRT certainly isn't comaprable to not winning in fresh water. Plus, unlike the risk of being forced to pay child support after one has penis-in-vagina sex with a fertile or potentially fertile person of the opposite sex, the risk in your scenario above certainly doesn't appear to be either sex-specific or gender-specific.

Indeed, the egalitarian aspect of orchiectomy certainly extremely strongly appeals to me. After all, as I previously said--many women can unilaterally get abortions in the event of an unplanned pregnancy; in contrast, I myself certainly cannot do this. Thus, getting an orchiectomy is certainly the best available option for me; after all, just because biology is unfair certainly doesn't mean that biology shouldn't be made fairer.

Yes! There are IUD's, of course.

There are risks we take every day, such as driving, that have much higher rates of injury and death than the scariest serial killer. Your pursuit of equality, however noble, is at a detriment to yourself without an adequate threat.

Indeed, if, purely hypothetically, abortion was banned worldwide and there was no safe way anywhere worldwide to get an illegal abortion, would you say that a woman who would want to voluntarily get her uterus and/or her ovaries surgically removed in such a scenario would be overreacting? Completely serious question, for the record.
Yes, I would believe that is an overreaction.
Even if, purely hypothetically, there is no exception for abortion even to save the woman's life anywhere worldwide, though?
Yes! There are IUD's, of course.

Which can and sometimes do fail.

Not all of these risks affect everyone, though.

Permanent, severe, and irreversible depression isn't a serious threat?
You and I are very different in terms of risk management. Yes, risks may not affect everyone equally. For example, you're a lot more likely to get crushed by furniture in your home than in a hut in Cameroon.

Serious? Yes. Highly unlikely and hyperbolic? Absolutely. Again, the risk is miniscule enough to avoid such a drastic, costly procedure. I would consult your physician and a professional psychologist.

1. You and I are very different in terms of risk management. Yes, risks may not affect everyone equally. For example, you're a lot more likely to get crushed by furniture in your home than in a hut in Cameroon.

1. Yes, but in this case, it's certainly a risk that I am willing to take. Likewise, I'd certainly prefer to have a female brain/mind, having ovaries, having periods, and being capable of getting pregnant but never having to worry about being forced to pay child support for an unwanted child of mine in comparison to the status quo. However, unfortunately we can't successfully change people's gender identity with current technology. Sad

2. In regards to the "highly unlikely and hyperbolic" part, my own response to this statement of yours is this: You certainly don't know me. Indeed, I was certainly being completely, 100% serious in regards to this. Sad After all, I am certainly not going to react very well to (cumulatively) losing tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars simply as a result of having penis-in-vagina sex! Sad

Hello, everyone! Many moons ago, I used to post here quite a bit (some of you may remember SpeedOfSound), but since so much has changed since then, it made sense to start over. I'm probably just around again for the election cycle, like I was briefly in 2012. I'm now a PhD student in Classics (Roman History specialist) in Texas, but not a whole lot else has changed. A mid-20's white dude living in the city on a grad student's budget. I'm still a far leftist who splits his ticket between 3rd parties and Democrats, an atheist, and a vegetarian. Still an avid sports fan, videogamer, and indie music fan. I hope to have some fun here on the political old stomping grounds and hopefully I'll still see some old souls I know hanging around this place. See y'all around!
