I hate transphobic people. (Vent)
« on: December 03, 2019, 11:31:23 am »
Today is my 4th anniversary of me starting hormones, so like usual I posted it on facebook, an hour later some douche decided to comment saying "your beard is coming along nicely". What the hell is wrong with people saying stuff when you never even spoke to them.

I would expect a few people don't care, or want to play or be funny. I wouldn't see it as transphobic necessarily in some cases, but it's definitely not respectful considering how we might feel. Some times I think we have to develop a sense of humour, since there's bound to be some stuff around. That or be adamant about respecting trans people. Either way you gotta find a way that works for you, maybe.

Sometimes it's hard to tell whether people are being mean or just idiots.

I can see how someone might have meant it as an idiotic joke, but it's very insensitive. I blocked him just in case his intentions were to be mean.

Sorry that happened to you.

I keep my Facebook page locked down to friends only.  If I want to allow the public to see a post, I have to specifically choose to allow it that for that one post.  The only trans-related post that I left public was my coming-out post.  But that was two and a half years ago, and a troll would have to do a lot of scrolling to find it.  My posts don't get trolled.

I hate to be that person but I went for the even simpler approach: deletion.
That site caused far more problems than it solved for me.

I really enjoy FB and keep in touch with my hundreds of friends and it’s quite straightforward to control who sees your posts

Perhaps recl-ass-ifying him is about due. He may have been your friend at one point though you would be hard pressed to convince me he is now.

Anonymity is a drug, which causes people online to act in certain... shall we say, cretinous ways.

To say something like that, this person probably has more issues than you do. Don't be angry, feel sorry for them. You're getting on with life, and don't feel the need to hate on others.

The key word is ‘was’, no longer and so can be consigned to the trash!

Hi Folks,                        05 December 2019

What Colleen said above is great advice. I'd go a step further with an easy solution: Stay off those sites. The world is full of a-holes, there are some on this site and every other site. Why do people want to broadcast everything about themselves on social media? First off it's a stupid thing to do; once you put it out there, it is OUT there PERMANENTLY.

If you don't believe me, Google "Way Back Machine." It is one of the many archival systems on the net. You post it, they own it and you CANNOT get it back or have it removed. Once you hit <Send> you have willingly given up all rights to what you posted. Sorry for the bad news.

Hope you all have a Blessed, Healthy and Happy Christmas and New Year.

Best Always, Love

Christine
