Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQA Thread - Queer Support!

Okay, so I lied and got dragged back into these forums. Oh well. Anyway, things are going great for me! I went to my college orientation (a 3day event) as a girl and it was awesome! It is really a neat experience first meeting people who never knew you pre-transition. It went off without any major h...

Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQ Thread - Queer Support!

Grooveshark is pretty cool, and I just noticed that, instead of asking for your sex, they ask "I identify myself as a: (male/female)"
Would be nice to have an other of something, but I really like the way that's worded :)

Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQ Thread - Queer Support!

Maggot was just being ignorant. His entire argument basically boiled down to "well some people have it worse so don't complain." That is a logical fallacy and a very close-minded approach. So yes, what he said was offensive.
