    They are, ironically, intolerant.
    if you're so incensed that you can't fly your penis in public take it up with your state, arrange a nude protest, go and be the rosa parks of cocks or something - witchcurlgirl

    It seems like nowadays you can't say anything without being accused of hate speech, intolerance, homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism or [insert: slut, skinny, fat, body etc ...] shaming. It's exhausting.

    I saw some post somewhere that was detailing the discrimination of women in medicine (most trials are done on men or something/most women's issues -like endometriosis or PCOS- still have unknown causes), and instead of saying women, they said "people with uteruses" to be trans-inclusive, and some were getting bothered by people just saying "women" becauses it's trans-exclusive. People with uteruses?? That's too fucking much. Policing others' language and being so fucking sensitive over everything is the lazy way of being political. It gives you the positive feeling of patting yourself on the back without actually having to put in any effort

    ETA: Trigger warning will always be the #1 annoyance for me, though.

    People with uteruses? Oh ffs.

    So now, as a woman, I can't identify as one because it offends the men who want to identify as one? My identity is taken from me?

    Again, the irony.
