The Minefield of transgender vocab - the phrase "born male" is now deemed defamatory.. whatever

One of the few joys of the transgender madness, promoted by the elitists of the liberal media, and now raging across the West is seeing uber PC lefties such as Germaine Greer and Peter Tatchell fall foul of this new lobby, no platformed and accused of bigotry becuase they just cannot keep up. Want to avoid such a fate? Thankfully I can help.

US based Trans Student Educational Resources describes itself as "the only national organization led entirely by transgender youth. While TSER members do have specific roles, we purposely do not have an executive director or management to make sure all levels of the organization have a voice and operate collectively." And collectively TSER has produiced a handy guide to what you can and cannot say.

For instance you must not use the word transsexual as it is "A deprecated term that is often considered pejorative." Okay so I will not use it ever. Uh oh hang on. "When speaking/writing about trans people, please avoid the word transsexual unless asked to use it by a transsexual person." Cripes I am confused already.

Lets crack on with the trans agenda. ... Oh you mean Agender:

Agender: An umbrella term encompassing many different genders of people who commonly do not have a gender and/or have a gender that they describe as neutral. Many agender people are trans. As a new and quickly-evolving term, it is best you ask how someone defines agender for themselves.

Oh right so your agender means whatever you want it to mean. Thanks for that.

Cissexism: Systemic prejudice in the favor of cisgender people. Gosh who are these lucvk Cisgender folks?

Cis(gender): Adjective that means “identifies as their sex assigned at birth” derived from the Latin word meaning “on the same side.” A cisgender/cis person is not transgender. “Cisgender” does not indicate biology, gender expression, or sexuality/sexual orientation. In discussions regarding trans issues, one would differentiate between women who are trans and women who aren’t by saying trans women and cis women. Cis is not a “fake” word and is not a slur. Note that cisgender does not have an “ed” at the end.

So a normal bloke or bird then? Go straight to hell Winnifrith you insenstive bastard.

LGBTQQIAPP+: A collection of identities short for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, aromantic, pansexual, polysexual (sometimes abbreviated to LGBT or LGBTQ+). Sometimes this acronym is replaced with “queer.” Note that “ally” is not included in this acronym.

An ally is what used to be known as a "supportive straight" in less complicated times gone by.

I save the best to last.

AFAB and AMAB: Acronyms meaning “assigned female/male at birth” (also designated female/male at birth or female/male assigned at birth). No one, whether cis or trans, gets to choose what sex they’re assigned at birth. This term is preferred to “biological male/female”, “male/female bodied”, “natal male/female”, and “born male/female”, which are defamatory and inaccurate.

Ends.

Bring on the asteroid strike
