Opinion sought.

I am well aware, of course, of the dangers of conflating gender identity with sexuality, but I figure that as I'm here this is probably the right sort of community to ask about transgender language anyway.

It's been flagged to me that the issue "Transsexual Demands Recognition In Chosen Gender" uses the word transsexual, which some consider offensive or outdated. Would "Demand For Recognition Of Transgender Identity" be a better title?

Also, how do you feel about that issue in general? I recently re-edited it, as I felt that there was room in it for a non-murderous option that was still anti-freedom of gender identity. That's not a viewpoint I endorse myself, I hasten to add, but I felt that the issue's comprehensiveness was lacking.

Can I ask, to any trans peeps out there, is there anything in this issue or in any other issue that is problematic to you?

Again, apologies in advance for assuming that a region called Gay would be a good place to talk Trans issues. I'm aware that sexuality and gender identity are separate things, but in my experience open minded folk are open minded folk, and the two communities can often overlap enough that a gay community will be a reasonable place for a cis straight male like myself to seek opinions on trans stuff.

No problem. It's something we bring up sometimes, so it's all good.

Hmm... it's an okay issue, I guess. It might be a little dated - that said, if I recall correctly, there are still some on the trans community who use the term "transsexual," or at least don't take issue with it.

Candlewhisper Archive and The Horseland

I am under the impression that only a minority of trans* folk are OK with "transsexual". Most seem to see it as an outdated, over-medicalised term. Some identify with the word (perhaps, though not definitely, as a reclaimed slur) but generally it's safer to use "transgender". It's a mostly non-offensive term that pretty much every trans* person seems to agree on.

I'm at a loss to name just one... Qatar comes closest to loathe though.

Gay Equality is going through a period of misogyny from Trump-style gays. It is a region of only men - not one lesbian. I long ago took over the role of founder there and the region, though small, has been lively, but the UKIP Trumpery has driven a couple of good people away.

The newbies hate 'feminism' and have gratuitously introduced the subject of abortion. Any lesbian is going to be feminist in the sense of female equality, and most men in a region dedicated to equality should agree with female equality.

It is working itself out - I think.

one thing i'd like to see in a lot more issues is some reverse-oppressive options (in this case banning cis people or w/e)
not that i think it would be a great idea in real life or anything but y'know

You interested in writing an issue along those lines? I'd gladly work with you on that.
