If trans men were male like seahorse dads, a woman would have to put an ovum inside the trans man to be fertilized. That wouldn’t work because trans men don’t produce sperm cells and because women can’t eject our ova.

I wish I had an amusing way to say that but I don’t. Seahorse daddies are cute but trans men are women even if they cut off their breasts and take testosterone.

It's insulting. If a white dude tried to "identify" as black, would it be considered a "burn" if he countered that some animals can change color?

Humans can't change sex and human men can't get pregnant. It's really that simple.

“Some dude just shouted at me that people can’t change race. One word shut him up: ermines! Boom!”

If someone I was having a discussion/argument with on the internet responded with such an idiotic non-point, I'd probably be rendered speechless, too.

This is some flat-earther level BS.

  1. Last time I checked we aren't seahorses. 2. Male seahorses don't really get pregnant like we know it, they carry the baby seahorse in a pouch.
[–] Yozakura 24 points (+24|-0) Edited

Exactly. I was hoping someone would mention that second point when I started reading this thread.

It really shows the ignorance of the person tweeting to write that male seahorses can get pregnant. That's like saying a guy carrying a baby in one of those baby sling pouches is "pregnant".

I actually blame pop science articles. Instead of being accurate, they focus on clickbate titles and sensationalized articles. Hence why you are seeing idiocracy level shit like estrogen can cause periods in males and men get pregnant too!

I really need to be more mindful about collecting these - I teach science and it would be great to do a deep-dive into misleading headlines. Maybe not about the whole gender thing so I can keep my damn job, but at least for a myriad of other different things.

Hell, why not with the seahorses though? Doesn't have to be about gender, just about what it means to be pregnant. Would be a great chance to talk about the difference between viviparous/ovoviviparous/oviparous.

Same. That plus old FB groups like "I F****ing Love Science" that only post extremely basic, misinformed, confusing stuff that gets clicks. Basically just tons of galaxy pictures or pictures of leaves with some blurb about the Golden ratio/spiral in nature.

Edit: I firmly maintain this iteration of "science" is filling the void in young people that religion used to fill. I believe humans need some form of spiritual or self reflective outlet. Not necessarily religion but some form of community that helps you feel accepted and like you belong. It typically has signals, labels, signs, symbols phrases, objects, slogans, that kind of stuff— to show which social "tribe" you belong to. "Dog whistles" if that makes sense.

This Neo-Liberal Pomo "Science" is the new religion. It has phrases you must say to signal your belonging (TWAW). It has Holy books ("science articles" and "research studies") that are often very difficult for laypeople to understand so they rely on the Priests to interpret it and tell them what it says (like those ridiculous FB pages that summarize lengthy studies with click bait titles). It has a sense of community and clearly defined tenets that must be obeyed. You get massive rewards for participating and you get massive penalties if you don't.

I apologize if this was ramble or unclear, my thoughts are sluggish today. Other users on this site have much more coherent and in depth analysis of this than I do.

That's awfully presumptous of you. How do you know how anyone here identifies?

Ten trans-seahorses just killed themselves because they were mis-species'd. 😥

I wish morons like these were seahorses. They do a shit job of being homo sapiens, especially the second bit.

They don’t just carry the embryos - the eggs actually imbed into their pouch wall.

[–] Emmeline 30 points (+30|-0)

That has to be a parody, surely?

I’ve got one “someone screamed at me on Twitter the other day “PEOPLE CANT CHANGE THEIR COLOUR FROM WHITE TO BLACK”. One word shut them up, CHAMELEONS!”

This actually made me laugh out loud


[–] Avadavat 20 points (+20|-0)

Seahorses...now that's a species that does sex and reproduction right...the male does all the hard work of gestating the next generation. Would love to see male gender identity ideologues try to self-ID as male seahorses. BOOM!

[–] ProxyMusic 17 points (+17|-0)

This fella might just as well have tweeted

Whenever people tell me that men can't get pregnant and give birth, I tell 'em to educate themselves by reading the classic biology text, Horton Hatches The Egg.

Don't forget the scientifically accurate movie Junior starring Arnold Swartzeneggar

Judge wanted to put me away for life for eating my baby. I pointed out that bunnies sometimes eat their babies. Boom - off scotfree.

[–] digestif 13 points (+13|-0)

Uhm, humans aren't fish. And fish actually don't get pregnant at all.

Someone screamed at me on Twitter one day "IT'S UNETHICAL TO CANNIBALISE YOUR BOYFRIEND!" one word shut them up ... spiders >:)
