Perhaps I have gone a bit far afield, if so I apologize, but people who use terms like "cisgendered" are basically asking for it.

I shall try to contain my contempt for their very existence going forward.

Cheers

Liar liar pants on fire. No how no way Harvey. You're just too loathing for that to happen for anything more than a fraction of a millisecond. LOL!

I actually agree. He is a pretty straight-shooter, which is refreshing. He often says things that people may not want to hear, but are the truth. Didn't he want to run for governor of Alabama as a Republican?

I am not Trayvon Martin either, but I am always learning new stuff on SF--like "Cisgendered," which, as best I understand it, is anybody, gay or straight, who is not transgendered. Is this correct? I was left to wonder: Do Cisgendered people live in Cisalpine Gaul?

Zimmerman may claim to be a "White Hispanic," but he sure doesn't look like one to me. I have known real White Hispanics, and they were just that---white! Some were fairer than my mother, who was always considered white although she did have both Hispanic and Native American ancestry farther back in her pedigree. Zimmerman looks like what he evidently is: a light-skinned Mestizo.

Now in my part of the country, Hispanic guys and Black guys bump each other off with considerable regularity, but these unfortunate killings don't garner national publicity, much less polarize the country. As one sagacious friend observed, "If everything else in this case had been exactly the same but Zimmerman's last name had been Sanchez, it would have gotten far, far less attention."

I had hitherto been uncertain whether the Zimmerman in his name was German (as in the Zimmerman Telegram) or Jewish. I now learn that it is the latter. Ironic, given the fact that the Jewish people in America have historically been allies and champions of the Blacks.

In all, Zimmerman--a man who certainly would not be welcome in the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan nor (at least until very recent decades) in most country clubs--makes a most curious symbol of white privilege and oppression!

If we could somehow harness the energy of self pity the internet could power the planet for all time

I am Ciswhite. Meaning that my perception of my race and my actual race are the same.

I have the feeling a lot of the people on the wearenottrayvonmartin tumblr are transwhite. Black people born into a white body.

Would racism even make it in a top five list of major issues facing African-Americans? It's there, and probably always will be, but it's hardly something that should be a focus in 2013.

Racist pig!!!

Do you denigrate transblacks? Those that are white people born into black bodies?

Some politicians and a SC Justice come to mind.

Do cis white males ever feel bad?
For all the pain and agony their people have wrought on the world?

That last guy .... uh, I mean entity, was pretty ticked off. I'm well out of the loop but isnt his choice of epithets a bit problematic? Somebody should tell him I wear my CISsies bracelet FOR A FUCKING REASON!

I give up on trying to figure this malarkey out. Is this the pc way of identifying groups?

This is more like me than any of whatever that other stuff is....

"I'm Still A Guy"

When you see a deer you see Bambi
And I see antlers up on the wall
When you see a lake you think picnic
And I see a large mouth up under that log
You're probably thinking that you're going to change me
In some ways well maybe you might
Scrub me down, dress me up but no matter what
I'm still a guy

When you see a priceless French painting
I see a drunk, naked girl
You think that riding a wild bull sounds crazy
And I'd like to give it a whirl
Well love makes a man do some things he ain't proud of
And in a weak moment I might walk your sissy dog, hold your purse at the mall
But remember, I'm still a guy

I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

I can hear you now talking to your friends
Saying, "Yeah girls he's come a long way"
From dragging his knuckles and carrying a club

And building a fire in a cave
But when you say a backrub means only a backrub
Then you swat my hand when I try
Well, what can I say at the end of the day
Honey, I'm still a guy

I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

These days there's dudes getting facials
Manicured, waxed and botoxed
With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands
You can't grip a tacklebox

With all of these men lining up to get neutered
It's hip now to be feminized
I don't highlight my hair
I've still got a pair
Yeah honey, I'm still a guy

Oh my eyebrows ain't plucked
There's a gun in my truck
Oh thank God, I'm still a guy
