2023.05.30 23:45 jollyranchur Total zombies noob here: What is it you guys like about Zombies?
So I'm a hardcore dedicated COD multiplayer guy, most of my time spent playing COD is the multiplayer, and very rarely do I touch zombies. I played it a lot on the base casual maps like TranZit, Town, and Nacht when I was a kid, but now I rarely touch it, even for the base maps in newer games.
One thing I've observed about zombies/the community in general over the past few years, is that people seem super dedicated and passionate about it, way more so than the multiplayer community. What I'm wondering is what is it that keeps you playing zombies so much? I don't mean it in an insulting way, I'm genuinely curious, as I'd like to experiment with zombies, play around with it and be more open to it, and hopefully kick the multiplayer addiction lol! Also, if you are a big zombies fan but don't enjoy the multiplayer, why is that? Again, just curious, I'm just seeing what people think about it :) Thanks!

2023.05.30 23:44 not__main__acc Can't get rid of doubt
I've been considering being trans for at least half a year and have wanted a female body for at least 8 years now. So far i don't know if I care that about pronouns. Ive tried coming out to my family. My dad said some mean and inaccurate things and didn't seem to listen to me. He's a psychiatrist and told me I didn't have early signs that would be evident in an actual trans person and that its just a seasonal depression. The part about no early signs bothers me a lot. I also often get this feeling of dread about the early stages of transition and about being seen as a freak in case I'm unlucky in terms of looks and passing. But what I really want to know about i this unexplained feeling of "I can't be trans"/"I'm not trans" that I just can't get rid of. Sometimes I don't have it but it always returns and is really strong. I often think it might be that I am just looking for a reason to be miserable and have self pity as well as to slack off, but that doesn't really explain all of it. I've been really depressed, but my mood really changes every two weeks or so. I also often see what the outside perception of me seems to be and that people wouldn't see me as feminine and that it would seem ridiculous for me to be trans. I also often get critical about transfers itself and the criteria for it, even though I would never apply these thoughts to anyone else. This results in lots of dread about the entirety of the process. Can anyone help me with these feelings?
Tldr: always get feeling I can't be trans don't know what to do. Probably just afraid but basically frozen un place.

2023.05.30 23:42 ihatetollroads Guy in Black Volvo Nearly Hits Me Going 185+ km/h on 401W @ Morriston
TLDR entitled psycho goes 185km/h+ and makes my blood pressure go slightly higher than that as well.
This past Sunday I was going to pick up someone in Guelph and was driving West on the 401. As I was about 13-14km away from the Morriston exit (which was the exit this psychotic driver got off at), I was in the 2x-solid-line separated HOV lane and cruising at a solid 137kph, as the speed of traffic was already pretty fast (~125) but I also don't want to get my license taken away because of bad luck. I was driving a 'green vehicle' which is why I was in the HOV btw.
A dude in a black Volvo SUV (early-to-mid-2010s) magically appears in my rearview mirror in the 2 seconds I don't check it, and he's immediately like Bill Cosby on my ass, staring at me in my mirrors with intent. He must've been doing 160/170+ just to catch up to me that quickly. I look in my rearview and put my hand and shoulders up like "what do you want?" because I can't legally leave the lane and I'm also not gonna do more than 50 over the limit because of some guy's ego (I sped up to accommodate it at first). So I wait until the line is about to break, and I signal to turn out and begin doing so. Unfortunately, our intrepid friend decides to veer out of the lane without signalling, before the line actually broke and while I was beginning my merge, and I'm forced back into the lane as he speeds past me, straddling the two lanes to my right and glaring at me with this deadpan "I'll kill you right now" type of old guy stare (all the while going 160, 170+, not looking at the road for a very slowly counted block of 4-5 seconds). Bald, all the caucasity in the world, and wearing a white shirt and cop shades. Pitbull lookin' ass.
As this was happening there was a brief moment of open highway (re: safety) so I tried to match his speed to see how fast he was going. I had to bow out. He easily passed 185km/h as he was beginning to approach the next wall of traffic (closing distance wasn't a thing to this guy apparently?). I couldn't believe my fucking eyes how fast he was willing to send it into the cars ahead of us, and then he spent the next 13km weaving in and out of traffic while I mostly just cruised up and around the left lane. All that work from him to get ahead, only for me to follow him (legally) the whole way and snag his license plate as he did a classic rapid 3-lane-merge towards his exit at Morriston just before Highway 6 north. Guy would've been fine if he just used the fast lane the whole time lmao. Guess something important was going down at home.
Whoever's abused dad is driving a black Volvo SUV with plates CYCY 661, he needs his ego checked and his license revoked. I prefer not dying while I'm running errands for people on a Sunday afternoon. I'm willing to drive pretty fast but if it was some normie going 115km/h hogging the lefthand lane, this guy might've driven them right off the road. Idk what comes after stunt driving but whatever that is, that's what this guy was doing, and in a fuckin family vehicle of all things. My biggest takeaway from this encounter is that Volvos are unbelievably versatile vehicles.
Please don't be an asshole on the roads. We all have lives to go back to and accidents as a result of this behaviour are highly avoidable. Can't believe how many top-heavy SUV drivers think they'll be able to get away with this type of shit forever, too.

2023.05.30 23:41 ZenithTheReborn Need Help with Rent ; Disabled trans person who is at risk of dying in homelessness
Hi my name is Zenith Reborna. I'm a disabled trans non-binary otherkin celestial. I have Long COVID, POTS, IBS, Autism, ADHD, and PTSD. I am not able to function in a homelessness environment, and without being homed I will die.
I am in danger of becoming homeless because I am not going to be able to make June's rent. There's a lot of factors that went into this but one of them is that I have been struggling with getting income because of being unable to work a traditional job, and I'm struggling to do the jobs that I can do.
Admittedly have been through quite a lot, that was the victim of police violence removed from everything I've ever known had to move cross country, and while I was recently homeless and I was sexually assaulted.
I need $800 to make next month's rent. I have until next Tuesday at latest but the sooner the better.
Thank you. https://ko-fi.com/goddesszenith

2023.05.30 23:41 frufrulai What Do Y’all Do When You Order Food and Don’t Like It?
I’m out of town for work so I ordered Jamaican food through Ub*r Eats. There were 3 restaurants in the area, I combed through reviews and ordered what I thought was the best one.
I ordered beef patties and they gave me chicken. They said they tried to contact me but the app wasn’t allowing them too.
Okay cool. But then I go for my jerk chicken, it’s not very flavorful just SPICY! So I go to the rice and peas for relief… and the rice and peas is spicy too 😭 now I like spice. I’m West African. But when food is just HOT spicy and not FLAVORFUL spicy it gets on my nerves. Like I feel like heat has to be earned by flavor. I also feel like spicy Rice and Peas is a crime 😭
I’m sad because I can’t enjoy the food. Like I’m just forcing myself to eat it. It’s not the restaurants fault but… idk what to do. I already asked for a refund for the beef patties. I just don’t want the restaurant to suffer because I don’t like the food. But I also don’t want to spend double than what I usually spend for no reason. I’m just really sad about this situation and dk what to do about it 😭😭😭 But Cutter’s Jamaican in Atlanta would never do me bad like this 😭😭😭😭

2023.05.30 23:36 Dino-DM Looking For Players [Online] [west-march]
The island of Lacana is settled in the center of a small archipelago. This island's vast landscape is home to many creatures from all walks of life. Together they coexist in order to survive the many dangers that threaten them. New arrivals are rare, but once they enter these waters, there is no leaving.
Will you be the next soul to stumble upon this island? Can you brave the steep mountains and dense jungles to uncover- The Secrets of Lacana Island
Hello everyone, I’m one of 3 DMs for an online dnd campaign that is looking to add players! This is a West-Marches-style 5e game that’s just getting started. We don’t have a set schedule as each session will be individually scheduled based on the players who sign up.
The campaign will be heavily exploration and storytelling-based! Combat will of course be present but will be more of a supplement to stories and quests! Think of it as an open-world-style video game. There will be a number of quests available for sign-ups at all times so there are always options (a quest = 1 session).
The whole campaign will be based on Lacana Island and the surrounding archipelago, a homebrew location set in a world of our creation. We care more about having fun than sticking to RAW word for word, so be prepared for homebrew rules. Starting out, players will be level 3, but we can get into character creation at a later point.
Important to note, we heavily focus on kindness and inclusivity, as we believe no one should ever feel unwelcomed or uncomfortable at our table. If you’re still interested after all of this, we’d love for you to join us. Before you can set sail on this adventure, we do require you to fill out a New Player Questionnaire. As a pre-warning, it is lengthy, but we want to make sure we’re the right fit for you. We do not ask for any personal information other than your name and email.
Folks from all walks of life are welcome and encouraged to apply, but we do require our adventurers to be 18 or older due to mature topics and language.

2023.05.30 23:35 saturnvvartq I am struggling to move out of my mom's house
It's just so goddamn expensive out there. Due to a series of poor decisions and extreme depression, my launch out of home has been very much delayed. I'm 24, an art school dropout. I try to work hard, but the cost of living, added with my depression, has made it so hard to save up. Now that I'm on the right meds and I have a clear goal in mind, I can focus and it's been easier to save money... But all my hope shatters whenever I go on Zillow or Trulia or Craigslist. I live in California, and it's awful here. A small studio is $2500 a month. My partner and I could realistically only afford $1200 a month and that'll get you a closet space here, seriously. Usually gets you a room with no kitchen access. I know I might have to bite the bullet and board up with like 4 strangers, but I lived in a shared unit in college and I fucking hated it. I hate living with strangers.
I feel like I should be able to live in a one bedroom apartment with me and my boyfriend's combined income. Like, that does not seem like a tall order, does it? Shouldn't someone be able to afford a small living space if they have two jobs??
We could alternatively move inland, but California is really undesirable aside from areas along the coasts. It sucks because I love my home, I love my state for the most part, and I don't actually want to leave. My mom is fine with me being here so long as I'm working towards my goals, and I am. I'm trying to become a tattoo artist, and it's a very hard industry to break into, but it's a dream of mine. I haven't had a dream in a long time. This is hugely important to me, and I am in a prime spot for tattoo artists. I could potentially get a very good spot as an apprentice in this area. But yep, I'm too poor to move, and it feels sucky knowing I can't get out unless I move states or move to a crappy town.
My older brother just moved to Detroit for this reason, but I don't know if I can handle that. He's got a girlfriend there who keeps him sane, and my boyfriend would never move out there, he's too close to his family and he hates urban anything. Tbh I'm pretty stuck on what to do.

2023.05.30 23:34 chiisaisuzume WWE's Alexa Bliss Is Pregnant, Expecting First Baby With Husband Ryan Cabrera
A little more than a year after tying the knot, Alexa Bliss and Ryan Cabrera are heading into a new chapter: The WWE star and the singer are expecting their first baby. Source - with photos & video
Alexa Bliss and Ryan Cabrera are still on the way down from celebrating their latest high.
A little more than one year after tying the knot, the WWE star and the "True" singer are expecting their first baby, the couple exclusively tells E! News. As Alexa shared, the pair were "shocked" when they found out they were expecting earlier this year.
"It was a total surprise, as we weren't trying at all," the professional wrestler, 31, noted. As for Ryan, 40, he explained that though they were "one million percent surprised," the couple simply "couldn't be more excited."
"We Facetimed my mom immediately," Alexa added. "And then shared the news with Ryan's family."
As for how the couple—who got married in April 2022 after more than two years of dating—celebrated the big news with those closest to them?
"Because we have friends and family on both coasts, we hosted a reveal party in L.A.," Ryan shared, "and one in Orlando."
But the fun didn't stop there, as the two—whose baby is expected to arrive this December—decided to also share a peek at their exciting journey with fans in a special way.
"We shot a video with our friend Neil Fernandez, which is a spoof of the Friends episode where Rachel tells Ross she's expecting," the "On the Way Down" artist explained. "Friends is one of our favorite shows and, as you saw with our prom video, we like to make our announcements in unique and fun ways."
And if you're wondering whether Alexa has had to wrestle with any food cravings so far, she has—with two dishes in particular winning her heart. "Macaroni & Cheese," she said, "and French Fries."

2023.05.30 23:34 compostghostttt WIBTA if I didn't go to my childhood best friend's wedding?
My (20s F) best childhood friend Alexandra (20s F) is getting married in the deep American south in early December. I live in the northeast, but we are both from the west coast, and grew up together as best friends. Around ten years ago after I moved out here, we naturally grew apart due to distance etc, but I still care about her very much.
As we got older though, Alexandra's political opinions started to heavily differ from mine and became a lot more conservative. I honestly didn't mind it so much as long as we rarely talked politics, but in the last couple years she got engaged to B (20s M), who is essentially a Q-anoner and conspiracy theorist, and she has now taken on all of his same opinions as him. This includes being extremely anti-vax.
I know COVID isn't considered as big of a deal anymore, but I still need to be careful, as my grandmother is over a hundred years old and my mom is diabetic. The fact that they have chosen to get married right before Christmas (the only time of year I go home to my family) and have an indoor wedding where NO ONE will be vaccinated is very concerning to me.
I brought this up to Alexandra a few months ago and she got really upset, stating she would be absolutely heartbroken if I decided to not attend her wedding, to the point where it felt like our entire friendship was on the line. I asked if I could just wear a mask the whole time and B interjected and said that would make people 'uncomfortable'. That attitude honestly cemented that I just really don't want to go to this thing if it means risking my mother's and grandmother's health. (It's especially sad too, because my mom was also like a second mom to her, and it feels really weird that she doesn't seem to care about her health in the grand scheme of things.) Still, whenever I've asked advice from even my most liberal-leaning friends, I get a bit of a side-eye and essentially am told that it would be pretty selfish of me not to attend, and that I should just suck it up and wear a mask if I really care about Alexandra.
She now keeps hitting me up to RSVP over and over, and I haven't responded yet because I just don't know what to do. I need to give her an answer by mid-June and am really struggling - I don't want to ruin my friendship with her, but I don't want to risk my family either. If I say I can't go, WIBTA?

2023.05.30 23:30 Mussarelinhagames The last ship of Humanity - Chapter 8 - A single ship
Terran year 5201 - 12th of September. First
Species: Grogs - Emperor Reith the Third. I'm currently going to the Galactic Federation Center, we will arrive there in 1 day, and although the Grog Empire has already assembled its fleets, and I'm being escorted by one of them... In the last few days, the Human factories have been working nonstop to assemble their ships, the majority of them weren't ready when I was last informed, they didn't let me see them sadly, but I was also occupied preparing our economy to the war, so it wasn't like I had the time to contemplate the human ships... In 1 and a half Galactic Day, the Cleyk Empire will declare war upon us and Humanity, and the worst of all? 8 galactic days ago, our sensors have already detected a war fleet going in direction of Nyrda. I'm really worried, the fleet is gigantic, the Grog empire doesn't have the time to get there to avoid the conflict, I can only hope that the statement made by the commander Harry, that their first carrier would be ready by tomorrow, and in his words, "we can handle it, don't worry"... 1.4 Galactic Day time skip - 1 Terran hour before the declaration of war. I was quick to exit my shuttle as soon as it landed. I was anxious and worried, the last war was 70 Galactic Cycles ago... I was not even an egg, yet, here I was, about to be declared war upon.... Everyone glared at me when I entered as usual, I quickly went to the discussion position, where the Cleyk ambassador was already waiting me...
"Well, tomorrow we enter war, how do you feel about that, Reith the Third?" - He asked in a mocking tone
" To be honest, you are making a big mistake..." - I said while looking down...
"The Cleyk Federation does not commit mistakes, also, I summoned this meeting to make a voting of the other species on the war, if they are against it or in favor, or neutral, well then, members of the Galactic Community, you can vote!" - He said in a happy one. I watched as the big majority voted to stay neutral, some voted against, some in favor, but out of the 1029 members, 938 voted to stay neutral, as if they knew that two titans were about to fight in a fierce battle. It took a few dozen stricks for the result to be declared, and the Cleyk clearly didn't expect that many to stay neutral..
"Well then, Reith, your empire has chosen the war path, expect us to destroy any military ship of your kind to be destroyed, that's all I have to say, you are all dismissed! - He said with a happy tone... I really wished they knew what they were about to fight with.....
_____________ UNCS Brazil is ready, war fleet detected, engaging interception maneuvering....
____________ The War is declared, the 2th Cleyk Attack and Raid Fleet approaches the system of Nyrda (Plok for Terrans).
Species: Cleyk - commander Yuok - commanding the 2th attack and raid fleet, aboard the CFCS Hutylid. I was anxious for the start of the conflict, it would be a massacre, I didn't expect much resistance from these so called humans, they are greatly weakened.
"Sir! Our long range sensors have detected an Unknown vessel on our path, we will arrive in communication range in 15 galactic time units!" - My Sensor observation officer said.
"Prepare the weapons and arm the shields" - I responded. I ordered him to arm the shields, something is wrong, no species would send one single ship to intercept a war fleet... My suspicions were confirmed when we got in visual range, the Vessel that we detected was gigantic, 3 times the length of our carriers, I was impressed, and so was my crew, we were speechless...
"Sir! They are hailing us! Should we let them through?" - My communication officer said.
"Let them through, I want to see what these humans look like." A few galactic time units later, our translation software finished the translation, and the screen lit up. A pinkish creature, with white and gray hair on the top of his braincase and face, using a suit of green color, with yellow and blue stripes, on the left side of his body, a name, which was translated to 'Fernando da Silva Magalhães', he was clearly tired, a lot wrinkles around his eyes and mouth,2 eyes, 2 appendages for manipulation, bipedal, very different from us, as it's common for species to have 4 eyes... Then, it spoke in a coarse, low voice, I expected it though, as this individual was clearly old... "My name is Fernando da Silva Magalhães, commander of the UNCS Brazil, Is this the fleet that's supposed to kill humanity? - he asked.
"Greetings, human, my name is Yuok, commander of this fleet, I offer you a deal, surrender immediately and I promise that your extinction will be quick and you will not suffer with pain." - I said with a serious voice. Then, something that I wasn't expecting happened, the human started to tear up...
"This is so heart wrenching, kid, you are clearly so young, yet, your leader sent you and dozens of other individuals of your species on a conflict that could be avoided all together, and solved with diplomacy, may I ask you, do you have a family back home, waiting for you?" - He spoke, with more tears forming on his eyes...
"...yes..." - I answered hesitantly. I then noticed that my had crew stopped what they were doing to listen to him...
"I'm giving you one last chance, kid, please, spare your life and the lives of your crew, I've seen what my species is capable of, I've killed many in the past as part of my job, and it hurts to know that I killed people that had a family, that had someone waiting for them back home, please, if you want to see your family again, go home, don't start a war that isn't needed..." - He asked, almost begging me, while whipping his tears from his face... I was confused, it was the first time that I thought about it, however, I knew that my family would suffer great consequences if I refused to fight..
"I'm sorry sir, but retreat is not an option for my species." - I spoke He sighted.
"I'm extremely sorry for what is going to happen now, may the best fleet win." Then he cut contact
"Sir, we are detecting a big energy surge coming from the enemy! - one of my crew yelled." When I looked back, I could see thousands of Magnetic cannons charging up and 26 fighters detaching from the vessel, then, the cannons fired.
"ENGAGE EVASIVE MANEUVERING NOW!" - I yelled. Our ships broke formation, we managed to dodge the majority of the rounds, but some of our ships still got hit, luckily, our shields held up. Our fighters were struggling to keep their fighters away from us to, I was starting to get worried
"Shields at 50% sir! we can't afford another hit-" my Shield Controller said, before she got interrupted by the computer.
"Multiple nuclear warheads inbound" They are going nuclear already? damnit! "Redirect engine power to shield and weapon systems, engage EMP Machines!" - I ordered. However, it was too late, some of the warheads got destroyed, but the majority of them managed to hit, depleting the shields of the majority of the fleet.
"We lost the CFCS Huoloiyd sir! Our Ships's FTL Core has been damaged! Engines compromised! 2 of our destroyers Reactors detonated! Our anti Projectile defense is crippled!" - One of my crew said, panicking. I was thinking, how could a single ship dish out so much firepower? But before I could order the remaining ships to rearrange, another alarm appeared...
"Multiple Anti-matter torpedoes inbound, heading for the battleships and the Bridge of the CFCS Hutylid, engage evasive maneuvering, anti projectile defense system offline."
"ENGAGE EVASIVE MANEUVERING, ORDER THE BATTLESHIPS TO FLANK WEST AND EAST, GET OUT OF THE WAY OF THOSE TORPEDOS, IF THEY HIT, WE WILL LOSE THEM!" - I yelled as I started to panic, that's when I failed to realize, that a torpedo was in the direction of our bridge... When I realized, I just stood there, I knew it was too late to save our ship, I then did something that the Fleyk Federation hadn't done in Hundreds of Galactic Cycles...
"ABANDON SHIP, I REPEAT, ABANDON SHIP!" - I yelled again. Me and my crew ran through the smoke and fire on the halls to the escape pods, suddenly, the entire ship jerked violently, as the anti matter torpedo collided with us, we fell but quickly resumed running after getting up, I could feel as the atmosphere started to vent out of the hull breach where the torpedo had hit, I failed to notice the glass shard on my arm and the serious bleeding.. When we got the pods, we ejected, knowing that we would probably be killed as well, but,, We didn't get hit. I watched as our fleet got destroyed, ship by ship, the enemy vessel, not even a visible dent or scratch on its hull... I didn't take long for some of the other ships to get abandoned as well, hundreds of escape pods floating as the main ships got destroyed... Sadly, many didn't make it to their pods before their ships exploded or got destroyed... Then, the 23 remaining fighters started to collect our pods, I knew that we would get slaved, at least it was what I thought..
Then I faded due to the loss of blood.... When I woke up, I noticed I was in a white room, in a bed, connected to some machines, a weird black blob stuck in my arm, and a weird thing on one of my ears... I tried to get out of bed, but then, I heard a voice, speaking in perfect Cleikdian...
"You might want to stay in bed, let the nanomachines repair your wound." - A female human in white clothing with a red '+' in his arm said from a chair in the same room, while reading something in a type of data pad, while another, heavily armed human sat besides her, with a type of kinetic weapon on his lap.
"Where am I? - I asked, looking at them
"You are aboard the UNCS Brazil, in the infirmary section, your crew is being treated for their wounds, all of you are now prisoners of war, you will be given a room with a bathroom, 3 meals a day according to the types of food you can consume, and a television with human programs and movies." - the armed human said. I sighted in relief when he told me that humanity wouldn't turn us into slaves, I guess that they have laws of war, but I still had so many questions...
This was long, hope you guys like it

2023.05.30 23:29 ajrfan4life My dad keeps mentioning how much prettier I was before I started transitioning
I’m 19M and I realized I was trans two years ago. I haven’t come out to anyone as trans but I’m not the most secretive about it. I’ve shaved my head, I bind, I wear mens clothes a lot, and I look pretty masculine. The only ‘girly’ thing I do is paint my nails. My dad keeps mentioning how pretty I used to be. He keeps mentioning how bad I look in pictures now. Honestly my entire family hates the way I look now. They’re not as direct though. I like the way I look. I think I look good for the first time in my life but everyone else disagrees. My dad keeps mentioning how much better I would look if I wore makeup or more feminine clothes or grew my hair out. I hated the way I looked before so much. I can look in the mirror now without feeling bad about myself and it kills me that the people I love most don’t think I’m pretty anymore.

I was sooo excited to see my cactus was growing but it has been like this for several weeks now. I thought the thing coming out of the top would flatten out but it’s not growing how I thought it would. I was so excited but now I think something is wrong. I know nothing about plants/cactus but I just moved it into the sunlight before taking this pic. What else can I do to fix this? What’s the problem?

Yes I know the flower on it is fake, I bought it at a craft show in Cali and flew it the whole back to east coast so I’m hoping I can keep it alive because it’s so cute and can’t die on me now!
2023.05.30 23:28 sorcerykid Trans people's attempts to redefine sexual orientation
| || | submitted by sorcerykid to ambigender [link] [comments]
So often we're told that if a man is willing to date a trans woman he is still "straight", because trans women are women. And by extension we're told that it's transphobic to refuse to date trans people. But do both of these arguments really strand up to close scrutiny?
If we look up the meaning of "heterosexual" on Google, the top 10 results (with the sole exception of Dictionary.com
and Wikipedia) clearly refer to "sex" as the sole qualifying factor:
- Cambridge English Dictionary
- Encyclopedia Britannica
- Collins Dictionary
Given that heterosexuality, by definition, is qualified based on sex rather than gender, then that discounts both the claim that attractions to trans women are inherently straight and that refusing to date trans people as a whole is transphobic. https://preview.redd.it/5rdpzquhv23b1.png?width=570&format=png&auto=webp&s=bd5860f58ea5c42afdc7162fe3a331d387899469
Suffice it to say, sexual and romantic attractions based solely on gender are riddled with problems. What distinguishes "gender" such that it would be possible to have exclusively
same-gender or other-gender attractions?
One Medium article tries to tackle that very quandary: When You Say “I Would Never Date A Trans Person,” It’s Transphobic. Here’s Why.
The author argues that discounting trans people wholesale from one's dating pool is rooted in a belief that trans people are not the gender they claim to be. This confirms that the trans community is attempting to surreptitiously redefine "sexual orientation" with the express purpose of affirming trans identities: "To categorically exclude all people from that group... reinforces the oppressive social system that says transgender women aren’t “really” women because they were assigned male at birth, and vice versa for trans men."
But the real slippery slope occurs when the author explains that trans people come in all different shapes and sizes, in order to establish that any trans person could be a potential partner: "The transgender community is a massively diverse group with all kinds of body types, genital configurations, personalities, hobbies, and relationship styles."
I would imagine that most gay men would take offense at such a suggestion. But it's just a logical consequence of defining sexual orientation based on gender. After all, women are a massively diverse group, so anyone could be potential partner for a gay man. And this is confirmed by the author's subsequent argument, that you can't tell who is trans or not just by looking at them: "When you’re on the dance floor, or on Tinder, or flirting with someone at a work function, you can’t truly “tell” if someone is trans just by looking at them, no matter how much you think you can."
Here's the thing: You also can't tell who is a man or a woman just by looking at them. Once again, the rationale for basing sexual orientation on gender simply doesn't work. Given that it's impossible to even discern whether someone is the "correct" gender unless they verbally disclose their identity, then bisexuality must be universal under this rubric.
Of course, the author also maintains that a fundamental lack of attraction to trans people is somehow derived from a deep-seated disgust of trans people: "If you’re only attracted to transgender people until you learn what we were arbitrarily assigned at birth, you’re still attracted to us, it just means your attraction is overridden by your repulsion against trans people."
Following that rationale, we could extrapolate that if a gay man is accidentally turned on by the sight of a tomboy, up until he learns that the tomboy is actually female, his sudden repulsion must be based in misogyny. Indeed, we could play the guilt-tripping people's sexuality game all day long.
Suffice it to say, redefining sexual orientation based on gender erases the complexity and nuance of people's sexual and romantic attractions -- which are ordinarily contingent on perceptible traits such as personality, appearance, and yes genitalia, particularly in the case of heterosexuality and homosexuality NOT on a partner's internal experience of their own gender.

|# || ||Team ||Δ ||Comment ||Record |
|1 || ||Rays ||0 ||Everyone's favorite myliobatiformes played another good week of baseball with the return of Tyler Glasnow. The Rays took an exciting series against the Dodgers after recharging during a weird mid-series rest day against the Blue Jays. Wander Franco is making his case to be starting SS in the All-Star Game, just make sure you don't accidentally vote for one of his brothers. It's still super weird to watch the offense carry while the bullpen struggles, but with guys coming back it should be f--, wait, Fairbanks is hurt again. ||39-17 |
|2 || ||Rangers ||+1 ||Series wins against both the Pirates and Orioles the last week has the club holding the 3rd best overall record in the majors. Go Stars. We're still having fun. ||34-19 |
|3 || ||Braves ||-1 ||3-4 last week and we started this week off with a loss against the Oakland "Triple A's" which is not good Bob. On the VERY brightside, we saw Soroka pitch from an MLB mound for the first time in almost 3 years. He pitched well and we need him to perform as we are absolutely depleted by injuries. Riley is starting to come to life. We hold a 4 game lead on the scond place MARLINS. Our division doesn't want to take advantage of our recent struggles, that's fine by me. ||32-22 |
|4 || ||Dodgers ||+1 || ||33-22 |
|5 || ||Orioles ||-1 ||A few weeks ago, I said if the Orioles can go at least .500 in May then they are for real. They wrapped up a winning month yesterday and have three games to go. They continue to play well, even though they lost the series against the Rangers, and seem to play better away from Camden Yards. They did, however, send Grayson Rodriguez down this week to AAA. He just has some stuff to figure out. He was getting crushed in his past few starts, and it was the right move to make. This solidifies the fact they need a frontline starter if they are going to make a serious push to get to and make noise in the post-season. ||34-20 |
|6 || ||Astros ||0 ||Jose Abreu finally hit a home run. All is right with the world. Unless the world's name is Lance McCullers Jr., who had another discomforting setback and we have no idea when we will see him this year. I still blame his hair. Anyway, our other Jose hit a grand slam at MMP this weekend. Where have we heard that before? ||31-22 |
|7 || ||Yankees ||0 ||It certainly would’ve been nice to take 2/3 from Baltimore, but it’s very hard to be mad at the Yankees’ month of May. Since May 1, the Yankees are 18-9, a huge turnaround from a .500 April. As we enter the dog days of summer, the top of the AL East is tightening up, but the Yankees don’t face either of the teams ahead of them again until July. The Yankees have to keep playing at this pace, and a Stanton (and maybe Rodon??) return could seriously help that. ||33-23 |
|8 || ||D-Backs ||+1 ||The Diamondbacks had a decent week, barely missing out on a sweep of the Phillies before dropping a series to the Red Sox. The offense gets on base but has been allergic to driving in RISP, and the starting rotation continues to be a merry-go-round, as none of the rookie pitchers on the team seem to be able to string together several good starts in a row without getting blown up once or twice. ||31-23 |
|9 || ||Blue Jays ||+1 ||The Jays' first series win since May 14th pulled us out of a bad-vibes tailspin the likes of which this fanbase hasn't seen since, well, the last time everybody freaked out over a losing streak. The usual suspects' continued confounding slow starts (Manoah, Kirk, Varsho, etc) have dropped us 10 games back from TB, last place in the best division in baseball. And YET, hope springs. Berrios (3 or fewer ER in 8 of his last 9 starts) finally appears to be pitching to the level expected of him when he was signed, and is pumping out quality starts along with Gausman and Bassitt. Kikuchi has slipped as Kikuchi does but has been very solid for a #5. We don't have the depth to send Manoah down for some needed alone time, but he's pushing it. Vladdy has been scuffling, Springer is heating up, and Bichette is an MVP candidate. With a little bit of lucky regression to the mean with abysmal RISP numbers, this team is just a few turns away from being very good. As long as we don't have to play too many games vs AL East teams. That should be fine. ||28-26 |
|10 || ||Twins ||-2 || ||28-26 |
|11 || ||Mariners ||+4 ||Just what the doctor ordered - 6-1 in the homestand so far. Some momentum is just what this team needs before two big series with teams they're chasing for playoff spots. If the M's can handle business over the next week, they'll be right back in the thick of it. Bryce Miller, do your thing. Up next: 3 vs. Damn Yankees, 3 @ Globe Life |Park Field Stadium Gardens Arena Domewhatever they're calling it these days |28-26 |
|12 || ||Red Sox ||-1 ||Scoring four runs total while getting swept by the Angels isn't a great look. This team is in many ways aggresively mediocre, always making sure that every win streak is followed up by an equally painful gut-punch. This is mainly due to the reliance on the offense to carry us to victory (2-17 when scoring <=3 runs), when the bats get cold, you're safe to turn off the game. Whitlock returning from injury and Bello/Sale both stepping up their game in May (2.74/2.42 ERA respectively) are good steps towards this team becoming Actually Good™ though. We'll see what June brings us... ||28-25 |
|13 || ||Brewers ||-1 ||Taking two of three from the Astros was nice. Barely avoiding a sweep from the Giants was not so sweet. Milwaukee has some issues with hitting in "close" situations. The Brewers either lose after having multiple opportunities to tie it up, or get absolutely blown out. ||28-25 |
|14 || ||Angels ||0 ||Did I travel out of state and all the way to Anaheim just to watch the team get swept by the Marlins? Perhaps. Was that objectively worse than what the Reds voter is going through? It's impossible to say. ||29-26 |
|15 || ||Mets ||-2 ||The Mets, who I proclaimed to be "good at baseball" last week, ended up dropping 2 of 3 against the Cubs and doing the same against the Rockies. I just don't know what to believe anymore. The only thing I know for sure is that Francisco Alvarez has got that fucking dawg in him, he's GOATed, he's him, he's on fleek, he's poggers, he's a proper legend, he's got an .885 OPS, he's a top bloke, he's got swag, he's fresh, he's Gen Z Mike Piazza, he's lit, he's making me feel old because he was born after 9/11, he's Francisco Alvarez. ||27-27 |
|16 || ||Gigantes ||+4 ||The Giants won yesterday, but strictly talking about last week, they went 5- 2 on an extremely acceptable road trip without any off days. Defeating two competent teams like the Twins and Brewers should feel good. On both losses, they gave up 7 runs, on every win they gave up 3, 1, or 0 runs. So, they threw two games out of 7 – that’s allowed. In the bad news department, Joc, Joey, and Thairo all not expected back until June 6th. I think we’re okay with more Bailey Patrick and this also means another look at unpredictable slugger David Villar. Slater continues covering for Joc. Let’s look a the numbers: 13th in MLB in Run Diff (+6 spots), 12th in RS / G (+6), 15th in RA / G (+2), 23rd in Bullpen ERA (+5). All of that is good and especially the bullpen is promising recently. The Giants continue at home vs the Pirates and wrap the homestand with 3 against our orange and black brothers in Baltimore. ||28-26 |
|17 || ||Pirates ||-1 ||Would I have been happy to learn on Opening Day that the Pirates would be around .500 at the end of May? Yes. But if you told me they got there after starting 20-8 I would be pretty disappointed. Here's hoping the pendulum swings the other way in June. ||26-27 |
|18 || ||Marlins ||+3 ||Yet another appearance of sweepy, the meme that was promised. After a rough series against the rox, we sweep the angels to settle into the third NL wild card spot. Our starting pitching is coming along after a bumpy start to several of our starters. Eury perez is gonna be a stud, just wanna remind yall. Also, shout out to Jorge Soler, who has been crushing baseballs the last week and change. In other miami sports related news, boston is the first city ever to lose two game 7s at home in both the NHL and NBA playoffs in the same year. Go Heat and go Panthers! ||28-26 |
|19 || ||Phillies ||-2 ||After losing 2 to the Diamondbacks and going down 5-0 in the 3rd game, the Phillies season looked as bleak as it could in late May while only being 4 games under .500. However, the team rallied and Trea Turner tied it in the 9th before going onto win it in 10. Then, they went down to Atlanta and split a 4 game series. It could've gone far worse. The Phillies most pressing need is now seemingly a 5th starter who isn't a guaranteed loss, as this week they trotted out Dylan Covey, who hadn't started a game since 2019. He got 2 outs and gave up 7 runs. He took the spot of Bailey Falter who, after a surprisingly productive 2022, started the season 0-7. Falter is the far better option, but Dave Dombrowski will likely be looking to upgrade until Andrew Painter can finally return. This week, the NL East road trip continues with their first 3 games against the Mets and 3 in Washington. Here's hoping June Schwarber shows up again this year. ||25-28 |
|20 || ||Padres ||-1 ||My Dad tells me it’s ok that the Dad’s lost 2 / 3 to NY; the Dodgers lost 2 / 3 to the Rays! The Pads aren’t in the same stratosphere as the Dodgers right now, though. 5 games under .500, 10th in the NL standings, 3 games out of the last wildcard slot. Of course there’s quite a bit of time to change it, there’s plenty of time to go on a run, or a slow and steady good month to gain ground. With every day that passes however, that goal becomes a bit harder to reach; I don’t think Pads fans were hoping for a wildcard spot by the end of this season, but that’s the position the team has to get to before even thinking of catching LA. The Padres are 4th in the NL West, and only a half game out of last. ||24-29 |
|21 || ||Cardinals ||-3 ||2-2 @ CIN; 1-2 @ CLE; 0-1 v KCR; another struggle week for the Cards. The fandom's been a bit kneejerk because of two good weeks before this. Their mistake. I'll say it a third time, the Cards playing at or beyond their expected level doesn't change the rotten FO. Yeah Marmol's pretty close to being fired, that's not a fix when the problem is John Mozeliak. ||24-32 |
|22 || ||Tigers ||+2 ||The most fun part of this past week has been watching the resurgence of Akil Baddoo. His energy is infectious and adds an exciting dimension to the lineup. As we head into the last few days of May, Baddoo has sported a .302/.405/.508 slash and a 155 wRC+ this month. Although he's still been hitting mostly in the 6 hole, if this keeps up he might find himself much higher in the order real soon. This week: 2 more vs. TEX and 3 at CWS. ||25-27 |
|23 || ||Guardians ||0 ||The Guardians won a series this week. I would like to see them win some games by more than one run, but it's clear this season, we have to take what we get. ||24-29 |
|24 || ||Cubs ||-2 ||Another terrible week for the Cubs, as a promising series win against the Mets was followed up by an embarrassing sweep against the Reds. The starting rotation was terrible, and the bullpen was somehow worse. Fans have had enough of David Ross, and Jed Hoyer is starting to come under pressure. Barring a dramatic turnaround, the Cubs will be sellers for the 3rd trade deadline in a row ||23-30 |
|25 || ||Reds ||+1 ||Okay guys, I’m here to be calm this week. I have been told by my wife’s attorney, Tom, that they are “aware” of my online activity regarding our impending divorce, so today let’s have a nice, calm, relaxing, perfectly fine, good old fashioned talk about Reds baseball. The Reds are just sorta middling. They’re not great but they’re not horrible. Unlike my marriage. Our starting pitching has resgressed, just like my marriage, and it’s very unfortunate to see, because our bullpen has been quite reliable unlike my wife. We still can’t hit home runs for some reason, but overall unlike my marriage the Reds on the upturn. There, are you happy Tom? I didn’t mention all the crap that’s been going on lately. I didn’t mention how I had to leave the Motel 6 I was at because I found a used needle in the bathroom, and by the way Tom, I know that you’re trying to use that as evidence that I can’t take care of my kids. I don’t even know who’s needle it was, it was like wedged behind the toilet. Believe me, I only found it because I dropped my phone while using the toilet. It wasn’t even visible, I had to like get on my hands and knees and crawl behind the toilet to grab my phone. So it puts the image in my head of some heroin addict or whatever sitting behind a toilet at a Motel 6 trying to get high, which honestly that just seems like an even worse situation than the one i’m in. Do I think it’s a coincidence that the day after I left the Motel 6 because of this, you’re requesting a drug test from me before I can see my kids? Huh Tom? How did you know about this incident Tom? The only people that know are the Motel 6 staff I notified, I don’t think any police showed up, so either you questioned them like i’m some criminal, or you’re following me. I know you’re reading this Tom, you’ve made several references to my posts on the baseball power rankings insinuating it’s me writing them, and yeah Tom you’re right it is me, can everybody in the comments give praise to Tom for being a regular Sherlock Holmes? Yeah everybody come on, Congratulations Tom! You’re the man! I’m gonna let you go home and fuck my sister, oh wait Tom I forgot, YOU ALREADY ARE. When you get home tonight tell Caitlin her brother says hi. Alright, I think I got that out of my system. Anyway, I think once more of our prospects are called up, probably around June or July, we may get hot and finish more closely to .500 than initially thought, and if this division stays like it is, and those prospects can deliver on their promise, it's entirely possible we could be in contention for the division. But a lot of this is gonna depend on if our Starting Rotation can get things back under control. Also we swept the Cubs so lol. ||24-29 |
|26 || ||Nationals ||-1 ||Week after week, I expect this Nats team to take a nose dive. I expect them to crumble and slip into a double-digit losing streak but it just isn't happening. They lead the NL in batting average (.267), are third in OBP (.330) and have the lowest strikeout rate in MLB. They still have their own troubles, but this team is alive (4 games out of a WC spot) ||23-31 |
|27 || ||Rockies ||+1 ||I don't have time to write a real blurb this week so you don't have to print this. Actually, you probably don't read these, I'm not sure anyone really reads them anyways besides the Reds guy's life breaking down, and this will probably get printed regardless. ||24-31 |
|28 || ||White Sox ||-1 ||Liam is back. I can't overstate how great that is to hear. He is one of the best people in the game and it's nothing short of amazing for him to be pitching in May. If you missed it, it was recently revealed that he had stage 4 lymphoma, not an early stage. He started treatment just over 3 months ago! Nothing on the field matters for this team, but at least there's that silver lining. ||22-34 |
|29 || ||Royals ||0 ||As of the time that this blurb is being written (Monday at 11:39 AM), only two teams in the majors have a record below .400. Yup, the Royals are there with the A's. I suppose the positive is that the team figured out that they can get rid of useless players in Hunter Dozier, but they still have a lot more work to do. ||17-38 |
|30 || ||Atléticos ||0 ||The A's have given up 10+ runs in a game 7 more times than they've won. It's a mix of bad roster building (the bullpen), under-preforming vets (Ramon Laureano 74 wRC+, Tony Kemp 38 wRC+), injuries (Seth Brown and Paul Blackburn are just now returning), and no fans in the stands since 2019. It's soul crushing to watch and the national media's constant condecention toward this particular poor team and it is even more annoying this year. ||11-45 |

Then after I wrote the above, I click here "new post", reddit.com scripts allowed, nothing happens, not until you allow google.com scripts.
The price to pay for freedom of expression is for google and its allies (guess who) have recorded the milisecond you clicked and who you are before you type a single character.
It is in reddit, it is in wordpress.com, it is on Russian State Television/News RT... it is nearly f...ing everywhere.
Hey dumbass, can you build the facebook package of zstd without google's code? Try again!
Let's say I am a state agency, N.Korea or something, and I want this code published by a software company, as free code, but both mega-corps refuse to take sole responsibility for it, but if it is split so either piece is not responsible entirely, between 2 mega-corps, then it flows. And zstd is born and promoted to take over the linux world by surprise. The author? He is granted asylum and protection in exchange for a filthy living and retirement, in the tropical coast of .... N.Korea.
Do you trust such code?
Oh... yes it is faster. By 3% of full multiprocessing mode? But not as good as xz, but still fast.
Ok, let's throw xz down the can, and switch to this new marvel from our beloved friends in the N.Korean superempire.
Thank you Kim, I knew you were always behind this zstd code, I just knew it.
