Ex Arlo luxPage 2 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)

I see you're repeating your failed strategy of trying to redefine terms until you're "right" by definition.

No, I looked up the General definition. I think you're kind of describing how you're being...

Then why *NOT* just say, "Dude, you're freaking out over nothing!", instead of trying to sound all hoity-toity by (mis)using a term that has a very specific, medical definition?

I did say in my (initial) post that he was freaking out over nothing, more or less. Then you chime in saying one shouldn't use the "phobia" word can ONLY be applied to anything unless they have a very specific medical condition -- which is Not True. To you, I say stop freaking out about it so much -- but yours isn't out of Fear (I'm assuming), so no, no "phobe" would apply to your freaking out here. :)

But what I am purporting is that the OP getting all wound up IS out of Fear -- hence, it's kosher to say he's a tranny-phobe, as him going out of his way to start a thread saying it's Unacceptable, etc. is he fears coming across it ("Snakes! Run!").

(9Pluto) Phobophobia is a serious disorder.


You're scarinng me...



(AT) I see you're repeating your failed strategy of trying to redefine terms until you're "right" by definition.


(norwegianguy456) No, I looked up the General definition.


*HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!*

The "General definition"? Where'd you find that, Wikipedia's online "Dictionary of I don't know Jack Sh!t about what words really mean"?

Listen, chum, the definition of measles, say, doesn't generally indicate that medical intervention is required: it is understood. The same holds true for psychological maladies.

"General definitions" aren't written for actual edification, nudnik. They're written so that laymen can get a "kinda-sorta" grasp of a concept.

Is so. Just because your "General definition" doesn't spell it out, doesn't make it so. Stop de-valuing an actual psychological malady, and insulting sufferers of *REAL* phobias, by applying the suffix "-phobia" to whatever is trendy this month.

9: Arlo, careful with that innocent irk, it could become progressive ... Phobophobia is a serious disorder.
Arlo:
You're scarinng {sic} me...

Could be GAD, or possibly hypochondriacal disorder. I you experience hot flashes, diarrhea, rashes, vomiting, stomach or chest pain or discomfort, insomnia, fidgeting, irksomeness or irritability over your bhaselines, see a reputable professional promptly. I feel compelled to advise you that Internet diagnoses are both the wave of the future and notoriously unreliable.

It's beginning to sound to me more and more like anal-retentive disorder.

I was talking with a colleague about Latin once (he had actually studied it in school -- he's about 14 years older than me...). Anyway, he started talking about grammar, and in particular, about declensions. I jumped in and said, "The only time I de-clench is on the toilet..."

Okay, I take back my earlier dismissive comment about your sensayuma -- that was actually pretty good.

The "General definition"? Where'd you find that,

Several dictionary definitions. Also reading up on it -- no, it's not a requirement that it needs to be to the extreme that it needs any official medical attention. I'm not selectively looking at things in my own lens like you are, man. It can be anything from quite mild to severe, not just utilized by society, but from psychiatric insights published.

Just because your "General definition" doesn't spell it out, doesn't make it so.

It's a GENERIC term, whether you like it or not -- look it up everywhere in different places.

And, just like generic cola, it is inferior in every way to the real thing, Coca-Cola.

Generic cola is made for uncultured simpletons. Exactly like generic definitions.

I *KNEW* that the mention of Latin would bring you running. But, considering how I schooled you last time, do you really wanna prod the sleeping bear?

Did ya catch my nifty Latin title? "Ex Arlo lux" -- "The light from Arlo". No, it does not refer to light beams glinting off my head; rather, it refers to me sharing my brilliance with all of you.

You're welcome.

Why ya gotta be nasty? Just say no thanks.

Okay, that was funny. Low-brow, but funny.

What purpose does that serve? To teach them a lesson for being born with Gender Dysphoria?

As long as they're honest about being transgendered in their profiles, it's not going to take anything away from you by simply saying, "Thanks, but I'm not interested."

I think we found Arlo's trigger. lol. I don't need a special term to have the moral high ground in this situation. I'm opposing someone that's obviously ignorant and showing fear and anger towards people just because they happen to be different. I automatically have the "moral high ground" (actually there is no such thing). And FYI showing irrational distrust and anger is ALWAYS of a result of ignorance and fear towards something you don't understand which is why "phobia" is commonly used since is the best choice. Don't get so bent out of shape about it. It isn't really the point of the discussion anyway.

If by "trigger", you mean, "annoyed by the misuse of a very specific term to Virtue Signal", then I guess you're just too good for me...


(cw35) I don't need a special term to have the moral high ground in this situation.


You're right. You can't claim what isn't yours

Fixed that for you.

Topics evolve. It started out as some Butt-Hurt Wienie whining about getting transsexuals in his matches, and morphed into a bunch of PC drones lecturing us about how their (mis)appropriation and (mis)use of a term was fine, and then them whining when called on it.

Why are you upset about this? Did a transgender hit on you? If they contacted you, just move on.
There are all sorts on free sites like this. You should know this if you are here for many years. There is no vetting of the site and it is a free for all.

that you are happy to admit to your prejudice and bad attitude shows that you have no compassion or
insight and I for one would not want to connect with you.

He's not overreacting, or being transphobic.

He just said he'd like transgenders to be identified or excluded from matches. Reasonable.

There are several issues at play here.

1. There are a lot of website that cater to specific populations and preferences (when such are of utmost importance). Why would it be different for someone who identifies as male/female, regardless of the genitalia identified at birth, and wants the company of the same or different male/female identification?

2. Certainly this bothers those who on top of being flooded with "fakes", or the website sex workers, or people who never intended to meet......and now having to deal with interest coming from those who are attracted to you but whom you would necessarily be attracted to based on the genitalia they were born with. Because.......let's not kid ourselves, it bothers some because they are initially attracted to said person, and then become upset that such was not revealed up front. The cognitive dissonance sets in (how can I be attracted to a man "disguised" as a woman?)

3. The website does not have special designations available, so as to say a transgender fe/male looking for fe/male, so it can only go by what they identify as, and whom they are looking for. So who to blame really?

4. The bigger issue is the rigidity around the idea that one could be satisfied and happy with someone whom they were not expecting to have that with. Of course, that doesn't apply to those who wish to be parents, and obviously the limitations that such arrangement would introduce. The idea that people are people is not a general idea to most.

The OP's default picture cracks me up. It looks like Ben Vereen getting excited during a session with his favorite porn cam girl.


The OP looks like an older Tiger Woods, too...
