What kind of stupid insensitive logic is that? Is he saying that if girls wanna avoid FGM they should just declare “hey everybody! I’m a boy now so leave my newly declared micro penis alone please!”. Do they really not read over their comments before they post? Or is he just that dumb that he can’t realize how fucking ridiculous what he said is. Needs to pull his head out of his ass soon because his farts are clearly killing his brain.

Farts killing his brain - lol.

But, yeah, that was one of the most inane comments this week.

I think they are trying to argue that because FGM happens prior to puberty and development of adult sex characteristics that this doesn’t have to do with sex.

It’s a poorly worded bad take that shows a fundamental misunderstanding of both human development and how sex and gender are defined.

Huh, that's the second time I've seen a transactivist implying that boys and girls have exactly the same bodies before puberty. (At least, I think that's what he's saying; pretty hard to tell) It's such an odd thing to believe.

You think that's it? Like, it's not really something you can miss, even as a child? Did his prepubescent self never look down as a kid?

Yeah, makes no sense but I don't know how else to read his words there, and I have seen them make that claim when talking about puberty blockers before. I'm not sure if they're really that ignorant or if they just have a brainfart while arguing on the internet and forget for a bit?

Is our school education just getting this bad? What's going on here?

I think these people are just so bereft of empathy for other people that they both don't believe in the severity of misogynist practices like FGM and think that if it is true, women ans girls deserve it for not being like them. To them, we just need to stop iDeNtIfYiNg as women if we want things to get better, not that things should get better for women overall.

There is no way they don't understand.

I think this is it. They literally can't be arsed to care about women and girls when they have 'real problems'.

[–] Researcher1536 8 points (+8|-0)

This is it. What do we see with almost every single TIM (and some TIFs)? A complete and total lack of empathy.

[–] RealMapelFlavour 10 points (+10|-0)

It happens because of gender but before they have a gender. What?

These people have turned 'there's no such thing as a stupid question' into 'there's no such thing a smart answer.'

What does "prior to any gender changes happening" even mean? Does he think children are sexless until puberty? Trans rhetoric is dumber than creationist rhetoric.
