Regarding the 4chan thing: 4chan’s hyper-ironic self-defecating attitude towards almost everything was actually sorta helpful for a while insofar as *joking* about wanting to be a cute girl (and finding sympathetic responses, etc.) was a heckuva lot more helpful for me actually thinking of transness as something that could apply to *me* than what I found in much less Problematic milieus, which was basically “okay listen up cis person, you’ve got to show some respect etc.”
this anon post keeps crossing my dash and I can’t get over the first line
4chan’s hyper-ironic self-defecating attitude
Are you staring in horror at a linguistic gem of corruption, terrible to behold in its stark clarity?
Or did you just think it’s a typo of self-defeating because i’m fairly sure that was not intended? as written makes way more sense as a descriptor of 4chan than self-defeating
The intended word was probably “self-deprecating”.
yeah that sounds like a thing you could call 4chan
not as good as self-defecating imo
