Exactly! So I guess I WAS right in my thinking this was what the thread was about.
@ UnderHim: No, it's okay. And that doesn't make you a stereotype. "Classic", perhaps, but I don't really think that's a bad thing. It's just that referring to the state of a man or a woman as having these traits can be offensive to a lot of people, including, but not limited to, transmen and transwomen. I am just as much of a woman as you but I have none of the traits you listed. That's all I'm saying. What you're referring to is "femininity" (which really is a word that needs to change because that's like saying men can't like pink, cooking, etc.), not how much of a female you are. I hope that makes sense. If that's how you look at yourself, that's completely okay, so long as you don't look at other women as less of a "female" because they like video games and wear men's clothing because it's more comfortable.
