Comment Re: Here's MY test (Score 1) 522

I think any movie that focuses on two people talking is going to be boring so I wouldn't choose to watch it

A movie doesn't have to "focus" on this to pass the test. It literally needs to have a single scene in which two women talk to each other about something other than a man. It could be a 30-second conversation about how they're going to defuse a bomb. It's a stupidly easy test to pass, and most media doesn't pass it, because most stories are about men and about how everything in the entire movie relates to those men.

Fair enough. Yeah, generally speaking, I try to default to whatever language the individual in question would prefer, since there are some differences of opinion regarding what language to use around these issues.

I was mostly just curious about your intentions, because I don't hear the phrase "gender confused" very often.

That's an article for "Gender Identity Disorder" that you were redirected to after using the search term "Gender Confused." Which indicates that "Gender Confused" is not an official medical term, and I've seen it used in a lot of contexts which are dismissive or invalidating to people whose gender expression does not match their gender assigned at birth.

Well, it certainly didn't take long to figure out what you're all about.

It's funny when you engage with someone who demonstrates a lack of sensitivity, and less than three comments later, they're sending you links to an anti-feminist rag that has little credibility and a transparent agenda.
