    We're derailing the thread a little here, but I figured I'd add my thoughts anyway. It's because of what people eat, and people of different colours of course eat different foods in their cultures. Some foods will produce their own body odours, right out of the pores. While I'm stating the obvious, I'm also trying to support the belief that this isn't a racist thing. Food doesn't have a race and there's no law stating you have to like different foods and their smells. My family has a right-wing history, but being right-wing also means you're probably less likely to try foreign foods even if that's changing lately. My parents were brought up that way. I find it hard to eat a lot of spicy food because my mother raised me on more plain food. In fact, she hates food like curry so much, the smell almost makes her retch.

    We all know damn well that shops (restaurants too) that are entirely operated by Indian people will smell of curry, even if people don't like to say it because it's "racist". So that's why my mother doesn't like to shop in them. It's nothing to do with the Indians themselves, just what they sweat out. Black people have a certain smell too, though I don't mind it. I'm sure white people do too, but since we're so used to our smells we probably wouldn't know. I bet that goes for people of other colours too which is why they often find such a claim offensive as they don't know they smell that way.

    I was getting my fingers ready to type out all my arguments because I thought from the title that you were one of those people that those this. Glad that you're not . It's one of the stupidest things I've ever read to be honest when I first saw this argument on Twitter. I respect people for their choices. If you want to be gay then be gay. If you want to become a man when you were born a woman then fine. I have no problem with it as long as it doesn't affect the way I live. There is, however, a problem when they try to force their agendas on us. Like they have a choice to be who they want to be, I should have the choice to choose who I want to live with/love.

    I don't have anything against lesbians or gay people. I actually have friends who are gay and lesbians, I think it isn't right to say that not dating them is discrimination. I mean, we do have a choice on who we date right?

    I don't believe gender to be as fluid as those people would like to think. I mean, sure, it's a nice idea and everything but at the end of the day your gender will be decided by whatever's in your pants. Transexual people need to come to terms with the fact that nature gave them the short end of the stick. Life is unfair in that way, and we all get fucked over in one way or another. Some people are born blind and deaf, others get to spend their lives suffering with chronic pain. Transexuality is not 'the norm' and should not be treated as such. Being born with only one leg is not considered 'normal', and one-legged people don't go around telling their two-legged compatriots to "check their privilege!" because that would be a fucking CRAZY thing to do. That isn't to say that these people don't deserve to be treated with dignity and respect because they absolutely do. I can sympathize with feelings of dysphoria and feeling alienated by the gender binaries that have been rooted in our society for generations, but there is nothing to suggest that you have to conform to those binaries if you don't want to.

    When it comes to sexuality, people are either attracted to men, women, both, or neither. You're either gay or you're straight, there is no grey area. I discussed this with a friend of mine (who happens to be lesbian) and none of her lesbian friends would ever date a 'woman' with a penis, because guess what? Lesbians don't like dicks! Who would have guessed, right?

    Here's an interesting story she told me: she knows this lesbian couple, and one of them decided they wanted to become a male, so she cut her hair and all that kind of stuff, might have even wore a binder and decided she wanted top surgery, blah blah blah. Here's the thing, though; 'his' girlfriend, until this point a lesbian, would refer to 'him' as her boyfriend. A lesbian. With a boyfriend. How fucked up is that? So what, is she straight now? Hell no, because she's still repulsed by the male genitalia! Just because her girlfriend chose to identity herself as a male, doesn't change the fact that she is a lesbian. Because her 'boyfriend' isn't really a male. God, just thinking about this shit is giving me a headache.

    So, select groups demand that everyone else accept that they can love whoever they want, but the rest of us aren't entitled to do the same? Really? That sounds like discrimination to me.

    I get so tired of some of these attitudes. Do what you want. I don't care, until you try to force it on others.

    @Mantis, I don't know how your friend could claim that "nothing has changed." Everything changed. Also, how are you supposed to have a relationship with someone you can't trust even if you were open to the idea of a same sex relationship? That's... insane.
