Trains & enbies betrayed by they/them journo's :marseylongpost2: about dropping pronouns because it's not unique and special anymore :marseysjw:

:#marseylongpost:

These days, it feels as if an identity that, not long ago, felt unique to me in most rooms I entered has gone mass. Yes, part of what I’m personally upset about is the fact that this thing I loved isn’t so alt anymore. But more than that, it feels as if pronoun culture has contributed to nonbinary becoming just the third gender after male and female, more static and concrete than its original fluid intentions. The same nonbinary person who complained about nonbinary stereotypes lamented to me, “I don’t want to be a homogeneous normcore mashing of the two genders.” Ben hoped, “If man or woman can mean so many things, then so can nonbinary.” We all became nonbinary to escape gendered expectations, and now we’re stuck again. I can’t help but think that the walking-on-eggshells battle for pronouns is turning my gender into a human-resources-approved corporate product, more neutered than neutral, and, maybe above all else, profoundly unromantic. Next time, just call me by my name.

Wow it's almost like gender identity has become a fashion statement, what an amazing thought.

Why can't zoomers just get a dumb fucking tattoo to feel special like the milennials do?

No way bro you got a tattoo of a stag's head thats half polygon lines like on a computer? Thats totally Unique and radical

At this point radtrad is going to be the most unique identity

Just not having a videogame or popculture tattoo is pretty rare too

Or that might just be :marseycope: from a guy that has tats ands prides himself on his "timeless" tattoo ideas. Im so fucking cringe bruh.

Bonus quip:

"Alternative" girls don't get a moth tattoo instead of a butterfly challenge. LVL = Impossible

Brooooooo, you don't get it. So there's, like, this anchor, right? And then right below that, it says: I REFUSE TO SINK. Y'know, how anchors, like, sink and stuff????

I knooooooooow dude. Thats why I had "Hold Fast" tattood on my boney fingers. Im totally rugged like a sailor feom the 1700's

My pronouns are the drum solo from phil collins in the air tonight and i need you to respect them.
