    Honestly, rarely, and by which I mean the odd tumblr post that gets shared around facebook, have I seen cis used to marginalize anyone. What I have seen is, is myself use the word cis to basically, as you said, for brevity, explain to someone some of my thoughts on the whole trans people being used as to push political agendas. As it goes, someone saw it, didn't realize what it meant, asked, and when I said it meant "not trans" basically, I got tore into about how it was a slur intended to degrade "normal" people. So yeah, basically, I think that whole charge is a rather ridiculous one. The obvious example is the "die cis scum" type stuff, and myself and many others do not condone that tripe.

    I would mention a gay and a trans person I support, but I don't care to dodge folding chairs, ripped up arena seating, tomatoes [plus other assorted fruits/veggies], and a couple kitchen sinks.

    Yeah, well, it'd be nice if I could wear my ass-less chaps in public again, but that's another that them "queermosexuals" done took from me!

    To the broader point of sexuality and self identification as a whole, I think culturally most of us are still in the dark ages. I like to people watch and analyze (though not judge) and it's just amazing how much people insist on putting themselves in boxes; in my experience nearly literally everyone I've ever met choose to put their sexuality or identity into a strict box to the world but in practice, that same proportion of people are all over the map and a lot harder to define.

    As a point of reference, you look at the spike in something like 'taboo' (meaning "step" family) pornography into the mainstream, with it's interest level validated by trending/top search terms in aggregaters yet do you know of anybody that would tell you "Yeah man, that's what I'm really into right there". Yet it's so prevalent.

    I bring that up because it's really cathartic to see communities of openness, as I still think it's a pretty rare thing.

    Bias/prejudice/prejudgment and fear are all ove any cultural identity. Once one gets free of those, one is able to look into his sibling and smile, no matter what is the color of his/her eye, skin, beliefs, sexual identity or eating habits/choices. One speaks less and listens/reads more... and is happier!

    What the bloody hell is Mick doing in the beginning of that video? Yikes. And yes, I realize that someone's replaced the audio sort of like a "SHREDS" video.

    Finally coming around to the fact that I don't necessarily identify as a man, but then again I'm not really sure what I identify as ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I've felt this way for a bit but haven't been comfortable talking to others about it, mainly cuz I'm afraid they won't take me seriously since Im not as androgenous/don't present "queer enough".

    I'm pretty sure I'm a straight guy I think. I've only ever slept with females (well one of them was pretty big like built like a wrestler and probably could've killed me with her bear hands). Two hetero marriages. Two sons. I've never found myself wanting to be sexually involved with men.

    I don't have any problems with others' sexual preferences. I always thought it was really nobody's business. People should be able to do what they want as long as it doesn't harm anyone.

    I was in a psychology class at college and I forget exactly what the discussion started out as... I related a story of a time during an itaq deployment where myself and a female soldier played a game that most anyone plays. Would you rather fuck person A or person B. Saying neither isn't allowed you have to pick one.

    Of course I started giving her choices between ugly guys and hot chicks to see what she would say. Then she started to give me choices between guys and at first it caught me off guard and I had probably the typical reaction of "no way I'm not a homo". But I'm all for fairness so I gave it a shot. I found that it is completely possible to be a straight man and still appreciate the attractiveness of another male.

    The females in the class appreciated it of course but I'm really surprised not a single male could admit they thought the same. I'm not sure why it's so hard to admit. It's not like saying another man is attractive equals giving him a rim job...

    Is it?


    I think people are just insecure.
