cisphobia isnt real

C’mon, you know my answer already, could you at least respond
to those points rather than just throwing out the exact same
sentence and expecting it to suddenly be valid?

Look, maybe I’ll believe you when one of you actually provides
a single valid reason to support this opinion. A reason that
doesn’t just rely on making up your own definitions to pre-
established words.

Seriously though, I’m as open-minded to debate as they come. If
there’s some compelling argument you think might change my mind on this, I’d really like to hear it.

It’s my 21st birthday on Thursday. I don’t have anything planned besides a family meal, which is fine because I don’t really celebrate my birthday (I can already drink since the age limit is 18 over here), and I don’t really get gifts any more.

My birthday is on 9/11. I was bowling when 9/11 happened, I remember the news footage showing up silently on all of the not-in-use screens. It was odd, but I didn’t really care because I was 8 years old and bowling. 

At school we always had a minute of silence to honour 9/11, sometimes I liked to pretend it was in honour of my birthday. Not because I was self-centered, just because I found it kinda funny. I don’t know where I was going with this, I just started typing some words and didn’t quite stop as soon as I was expecting.

Thanks for those tasty deets! One more question; I've never heard of this collaborator. What kind of music have they made in the past?

He doesn’t make music, just does the occasional voice-stuff. He’s been coming up with concepts and titles, as well as coming up with and designing the album in the first place, and also providing some vocal samples for the project. Think Jamie Hewlett in the Gorillaz - not a musician, but an integral part of the project.

will that filler album be free

Yep, 100% free. Well, it’ll be hosted on Bandcamp; there’ll be a “pay what you want” option, but I definitely will not urge (or even expect) anyone to pay a cent on it. I generally just leave the option turned on because 1) Bandcamp limits free downloads per month, but doesn’t count PWYW downloads and 2) I prefer my music to be freely available, but sometimes seeing an email with “some shmuck just payed a fiver for an album they could’ve got for free!” helps me get through a particularly financially-tight month (i.e. every month). 

But yeah, I never feel comfortable charging for music, so there’ll usually be a free option. And even on the rare occasion there isn’t, I completely condone ripping from Youtube or Bandcamp.

(The only reason the Grumps instrumentals are a dollar each is because my laptop was broken at the time and I released them to pay for the expensive repairs. I felt guilty as hell afterwards for some reason, and considered making them free. But then I felt that it would be unfair to those who payed the mandatory dollar each for them, so I kept it for fairness and ended up feeling even more guilty. Conclusion: Yes, I am a complete sap.)

Oh man, this makes some really good points.
The part about male characters being constantly put in positions that we would only consider sexual if women were in them is really interesting, and I really wonder why that is. (Also that takedown of Elle was pretty great)

Was the bonzi album canceled? Not to sound too rude, but you're being kinda vague with details. Like, what's your motive behind it, when's it coming out, who's the collaborator, will the whole thing be hip hop stuff... Where r the deets, man?

Anonymous

Nope, it’s still in the works. I’ve had my girlfriend staying over for a few weeks, slowing down work on it for a little while, but progress is being made and this will not be cancelled or abandoned.

As for the other requested deets:
Motive: Answered here
Collaborator: Unsure what name he wants to be credited with, but here’s his tumblr
Release Date: When it’s finished (but definitely within the next few months. For real. Honestly this time)
Will the whole hip hop stuff…: Eh? Not entirely certain of the meaning of this question here? The genres of the tracks will differ massively, there won’t be any set genre or theme other than sampling and a lack of focus on production quality.

Hope those’re the sort of deets you were after.

do u still beleive in cisphobia

C’mon, not this again. Not believing in cisphobia is like not believing in, I dunno, wood or something. Just because you’ve twisted your definition of the word so that it no longer applies in your own warped vocabulary, it doesn’t mean that it suddenly doesn’t exist. I agree that it’s not a widespread or particularly severe issue. but that doesn’t mean that it magically doesn’t exist.

As far as I can tell, when people say stupid stuff like “cisphobia/misandry/heterophobia/white-on-black racism cannot exist”, it’s because they’ve made the mistake of taking the word and somehow putting the definition for “institutional racism/sexism/etc.” in its place. For example, when people say “black-on-white racism can’t exist because, by definition, racism can only come from a position of power/privelege”, that is literally the definition of institutional racism, which is just one type of racism. Racism is literally just discrimination by race, it has nothing to do with power/privelege. Just as homophobia is discrimination against homosexuals, and cisphobia is discrimination against cis people. Institutional cisphobia does not and cannot exist due to the lack of trans people in positions of power and privelege, obviously, so in that respect you are completely right. But that’s just one type of cisphobia, and as tiny of an occurrence as cisphobia actually is (despite sometimes seeming prevalent on this site), denying its existence is outright childish. I have no idea how some people cannot grasp this concept.

A common response I see to this argument tends to mock the use of, y’know, the actual definitions of words with responses like “*cis white boy voice* let me get out my dictionary and prove you wrong”. Hell yes get out your dictionary, because that’s what it’s for. Words NEED these commonly understood definitions, without them debates like these can never work. If you suddenly make up your own meanings to words, you’re not winning any argument, you’re just twisting your own perception until you’ve won in your own head but nobody else’s. That’s the equivalent of solving a problem by just twisting your definition of the problem. “Watch out, there’s a giant boulder rolling toward you, you’ll be squashed to death!”, “Nah. By definition, boulders are just  weightless bubbles of air, so death by boulder doesn’t exi[SQUISH]”

(Granted, that’s a really silly metaphor. Especially because, as always, there’ll probably be several people saying “did you really just compare cisphobia to a giant boulder? That’s insane and your argument is now invalid”, because the sort of person who says ill-informed stuff like “cisphobia doesn’t exist” also seem to be the sort who are profoundly capable, almost majestically so, of completely missing the point.)
