Well, apologies for not actually seeing this piece until now, as well as your comment. My mistake. I'll try not to do it again.

*Hands back apology*... Here you go...

See... I'm a bit of a jerk... When I see a comment, like this one, that's just BEGGING for someone to respond to it...

I take it... The guy who made this was just BEGGING someone to call him a woman so he could get even more pissed than he already was... (He just wanted an excuse to hate life)

What you took the picture as, is him saying, "Oh wah, don't call me a woman, uhhhh." What he was really saying however is "Do it, call me a woman, oh my fucking god PLEASE, I am begging you... I am DIEING to hit something... Give me an excuse dammit."

Which he of course WON'T when he IS called a woman, and will just slump back into his room and become even MORE emo because of it...

Me on the other hand... I'm a very weak man, most guys can easily kick my ass, and yet I will STILL attack them regardless, if I'm provoked...

And by the way... One month is HARDLY very long to respond to a comment... I was just surprised by the exact date...

*tucks apology back into pocket* Welp.
You don't have to though -- why bother purposely provoking people when you know they'll get miffed by it? (ignoring the fact that you said you're a jerk, anyway.  I don't believe that's entirely true. I'm sure you're an alright person despite all that jazz there.)
Ah, but not everyone likes a good argument/fight, though. They more than likely just felt like making some art about something that's close to home for them - they wanted to express themself, not personally provoke you into being a butt towards them.
And "emo".. Oh my gosh. I didn't think anyone still used that word. Not saying anything bad about you or anything, just.. Yikes.
Anyhow, but yes..  Ahh, I see. I wasn't entirely sure, actually. I sort of just assumed the worst and figured it was sarcasm (sorry 'bout that).

"Why bother purposely provoking people when you know they'll get miffed by it?"

Because he's a pathetic person who just wants to sulk in one small insignificant trait about himself... This guy actually took the time to draw out a plea and warning to anyone who calls him a woman or girlish... Meaning, this guy wasn't going to do anything even IF I said it to his face...

What this guy is doing is the basic equivalent to Whiny Pre-Teen girls who run away and write long and sucky poetry... And we ALL know how little Pre-Teen girls deserve... (Hell I refuse to associate them with actual human beings)...

This guy just bottles things up inside himself and then does this...

I however wear my emotions on my sleeve... I'll easily hit someone if I get pissed enough at them... Hell I'll slug you if you make a god awful pun that only your lame uncle would make...

Oh, this guy gets ridiculed because he looks like a woman or a little bit girlish...

Boo hoo...

I'm a high functioning Autistic who gets constantly grouped with low functioning autistics by all of society... My tongue is under developed, strength wise, because I didn't speak much as a kid, so now I can't say most of syllables properly, or at all when in a certain order... My family has serious stress problems which means I can make myself sick when ever the fuck I want when I seriously don't want too... And I have a serious phobia of bugs which prevents me from being hired for most jobs... Also I have a serious social disorder, and after 18 years (I'm now 20) I am SERIOUSLY lonely and don't fucking know how to get a woman... And to top things off even more... I'm 20 years old, but my body doesn't quite know that yet, so I look and instinctively act like I'm 17 when I'm REALLY not trying to (It's an autistic thing)...

But hey... At least I look like a man... Am I right?

Sorry... But I'm a little unforgiving with Perspective... So whenever I see a comment or something complaining about something insignificant as "Women's Rights" or any bull like that... I instinctively act like a jackass... They want something to bitch about... So I give them something to bitch about... It's not like they'd do anything any how...

And besides... Of course people are still using Emo... I hear the term AT LEAST five times a week... I mean seriously, Your Canadian for god's sake... Your as American as me, you should be hearing the term constantly...

I really don't actually! But I suppose that's mostly because I'm done with school and all - and most the people I'd hang around don't associate themselves with those groups of people anymore. All grown up/matured and all, I suppose; well for the most part anyway.
Ha! Remind me never to make those puns around you then..  I'm absolutely terrible for them - oops.
Ah.. Insignificant.. I won't get into that though - mostly because conflicting opinions and such, that and I don't really like arguments, anyway. I'll keep my opinions to myself for our sakes.
But if you know they won't do anything or say anything about it, why bother then? Wouldn't that just be a waste of time?
I'm not, really - Canada and America have plenty of differences, culture-wise. Or so I hear, anyway.. Never been to America, so I suppose I could never really say for sure.
But anyhow! Your problems and his problems, they don't make the other any less important. No need to be upset by it or anything.
He's a trans-man; the brain is different from the body; the brain is structured how a male's would be/acts as a male's would, while the body is physically female. So it doesn't match! It causes body dysphoria, which is why people are so self-conscious of whether or not they pass/look like the gender they identify with. So that's why he made it! Or why I believe he did, anyway. That's just my interpretation, anyhow. Maybe his is different! Who knows?  (I'm unsure if you knew all that or not, so I figured I might as well say [?]. Sorry for that if you already knew - if you did, just ignore all that rambling and such.)
Ah, sorry for calling you a dick, by the way. I'm normally good with keeping myself in check, but I let it get the best of me and I seem to have reacted rather badly.

Can't be any harm in assuming and being corrected/having to correct. It's like learning to mix your food; nothing's sacrificed and it works out.

Honestly: as a cis guy, the more I learn about transexuality and dysphoria, the more gender as a construct loses meaning to me. But at the same time, I struggle to understand how it absolutely must have meaning to some people. It's weird.

Not that weird is necessarily wrong.

Sometimes I wish I had dysphoria for a while.
