>>5595408 Can they? Maybe. That's up to the individual. You're looking at this the wrong way.
Gender dysphoria is a problem that lowers the quality of a person's life significantly. If other factors in their life raise the quality of their life enough to offset this, they can be happy or at least ok. However gender dysphoria gets worse over time. The longer you live with gender dysphoria, the more unhappy you will become over time. People who have stressful circumstances or painful lives outside of gender... Comment too long.

Non-sexual and platonic intimacy; how do you express it?
Friendly reminder that you can hide the thread by clicking the little minus sign to the left, or by filtering "/acegen/" through 4chan's settings (top right). For those of you who continue to insist that we do not belong here: /lgbt/ is the most relevant board on 4chan for the discussion of GSRMs (gender, sexual, romantic minorities) which includes asexuals and asexuality

I'm not an ace, but my new SO is. We've been friends for a few years previously and I already knew they were asexual. While this doesnt bother me, all my previous relationships have been sexual to some degree.
I was hoping you all might have some ideas or suggestions for some non-sexual intimate activities. I'm sure i'll get a much better idea of what sort of things they'd like personally after we talk about it, but I'd really like some sort of base of ideas to work with.

Pansexual is used to specify that you're attracted to ALL genders, not just men and women but non-binary people as well, whereas bisexuals are attracted to men and women but may or may not be attracted to nb people. Also, pansexual implies that one doesn't really think in terms of gender.
Please reassure me. I know it's exceedingly rare to get hiv from giving oral without ejaculation, and usually due to blood contact or other stis, but I'm still really anxious. I also know it's probably just a flu or rhinovirus from school.
>>5594694 It's a bit more complicated than that. In order for sexual intercourse to be gay for you (note that the intercourse may be gay for one participating member but straight for the other), the following conditions must be met
>you must be the bottom >you must also take a submissive role >your balls must touch your partner's balls >you must orgasm without touching your penis
Coming from /adv/ i was kind of trashing a trans person there and i want to kind of understand trans better and be less ignorant,
>What are your current views on LGBT
I have no problems with gays, lesbians, and bisexuals...but with trans people it gets complicated
i think the best, more understandable trans person for me are hermaphrodites. Someone who was born with both sexes, or unclear sexe, so they had a gender assigned to them. Sometimes you grow up with the sex assigned you and everything is dandy, sometimes you aren't so you change your sex to match how you grew up physically. This makes sense for me.
What I don't get "and admittedly look down on/creeped out/disgusted at" are trans people who have a perfectly defined physical gender and do a bunch of unnatural procedures to be a sexe that they are the complete physical opposite of, with surgery, hormones, and etc. I once had a co-worker who was a dude who transitionned into a man that dresses like a woman, and my only reaction was "wtf". He was a cool dude before and turned into a weird bitch.
I feel like the consequences of making your sexe go 180 degrees are not socially acceptable. I can totally respect someone being born a certain way, but doing unnatural procedures to turn into something that is neither man nor woman i have HUGE problems understanding. I keep hearing stuff like "woman trapped in a man's body", isnt that just a gay person?
Apologies if I offend, I guess I am a transphobe, share your stories or explanations if you think it might sway my views, thanks!
Nah, don't say that OP. It's difficult to understand some things in this world - people in particular.
> I keep hearing stuff like "woman trapped in a man's body", isnt that just a gay person?
That's a bit closer to homophobia, though. Gay men don't really care to be thought of that way.
Anyway, no, it's not socially acceptable to be trans right now. Trans people are looked down on and misunderstood by a supermajority. It helps a lot if you pass - those that don't aren't given anywhere near the respect that a human being with a beating heart should have, but even those who do aren't favoured so high as to be able to make it to a second class.
>if you think it might sway my views, thanks!
I'm not here to sway your view in the way you might expect. It wouldn't be reasonable for a non-trans person to be able to understand what goes on inside a trans brain. You're different. It's suggested in science that trans women have neurology that is much closer to cis women than it is to men, or even gay men, but the investigation is ongoing.
I don't think it's going to make rational sense to you to understand that some people are irrationally repulsed by every aspect of their birth sex, and that it makes them extremely uncomfortable, and that it feels incredibly wrong. That quest to the opposite sex is an inward thing; people want to be comfortable in their own skin, and they, in doing so, accept the storm that comes from all the people in the world who don't, won't, or can't show compassion to people they don't understand.
They get as close as they can with the technology we have in this world. It's not perfect. Maybe one day it will be, but I doubt we'll live to see that day when people can live without feeling divided upon themselves.
Try to understand if you can, but don't push yourself. All I ask from you is to be an excellent human being and to practice kindness and pity in spite of yourself.
So I still don't know if I get fat redistribution right. Let's say you start HRT while being slightly fat (belly and thighs) then later put on new fat and want to lose some weight because you really hate your beer belly, does the old fat go away first or will my newly acquired fat disappear too?
>>5594532 I kinda naively thought the existing fat is going to move around too but that supposedly happens like 5 or 10 years later. I wasn't even like sumo wrestler tier fat before and actually skinny during puberty unable to put on any weight then while waiting for hormones approval I started overeating because I didn't want to be any more masculine but now I am stuck with a really ugly belly.

>>5594495 >We're not all going to make it edition >Just accept the truth. You're right. I am one of the people that will be miserable forever and never have what the other posters have. Only if suicide didn't freak me out so much I would do it.
>>5594355 Possibly but that person would probably be fucked mentally and be under a lot of stress, chances are because of that they'd probably end up addicted to something just to curve the edge... in other words, it'd be a feigned happiness Though I have heard of people who didn't transition medically but have socially and are doing fine (most of those that didn't look like freaks were Ftms, though)..
