"I don't have a degree in psychology, but it seems to me that people who "find God" later in life after whatever else they've been doing usually do so because of some severe psychological stressor: divorce, death of a child,…"
That gets into the whole issue of MTF women having never experienced gender oppression until after their transition, which isn't the same as all other women who are "molded" from birth. Bitch wouldn't have the same emotional impact.
Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I feel as if accepting "bitch" is internalizing self loathing. I have no problem, however with identifying as queer. Go figure. There's a lot of grey when it comes to changing words vs being changed by them. Many of my friends are happy to call themselves "slut" too, while I cringe. Why can't we invent positive words, like Ms instead of Miss, instead of getting stuck with "hijacking" demeaning ones? We're always swimming against the patriachial current to change words. Historically they always move the opposite direction, like Madam going from the honorific female equivalent of Mr to bordello operator.
Greetings, Thinky Bitch! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D BTW, as a feminist I feel uncomfortable when women accept "bitch" to identify themselves. You do know it assumes we're not human.
Heh, cool. And yeah I realize I could have looked it up on Wikipedia, but it seemed something more tactful to ask about, rather than querying your specific interpretation of omnisexual. :-D I've always wondered how that varies from the usual bisexuality. Wikipedia seems to treat it simply as a synonym for pansexual, so I'm kind of lost on that one.
Oh, and what sort of IT work do you do? Are you mostly hardware or software side?
