""assigned" is actually a term for intersex people, who were assigned a sex at birth by means of surgery. its a term that has been appropriated by the trans* community. it’s better to use the phrase "designated (female or male) at birth" to refer to trans* and nonbinary people!"

I should keep this in mind!

Fairly certain this isn’t true. I know for a fact that CAMAB was coined by trans women, and I’m willing to guess cutting off the C doesn’t make it someone else’s word.

To quote freedominwickedness “CAMAB and CAFAB were originally created by trans women and then intersex people started identifying with them and started saying they created them so that they wouldn’t be associated with trans women. So yeah, there are those who consider it appropriative, but it’s because they’re transmisogynists. Anyone can use CAXAB language, because everyone is coercively assigned a gender at birth (i.e. no one chooses the gender they’re assigned), although for some it is more coercive than for others.”

"defined" or "declared" was substituted to produce "DFAB" and "DMAB" and the objection then shifted to the "AB" part. At that point, the trans women involved who were in my circle of friends saw it as being an objection to trans women claiming they were assigned an incorrect gender at least at the earliest point in their lives and, possibly, at all.

Yeah, a few months ago we had this spate of people trying to take any words we used so all we’d be left with is “man” for camab trans people.

Like They wanted CAMAB, then AMAB, then DMAB. Someone did that last one like a day after I joked about it happening.

The thing that really gets me is how much people want to believe this. How badly they want to be “supporting” intersex (or any) people over trans people. Because nobody ever questions the idea that “assignment” refers exclusively to surgical alteration. I’ve seen people saying that the “assigned” in “assigned at birth” literally refers to surgery (how?), and therefore intersex people are the only people whose sex is assigned at birth.

QuestionSo in an ally relationship, how do you decide who's the Macklemore and who's the Ryan Louis? Answer

allystruggles:

As you’re probably aware, there’s a lot of debate in the ally community about whether Macklemore or Ryan Lewis better exemplifies allydom in it’s purest form. While Macklemore vocally supports gay and ally rights, Ryan Lewis, as his sidekick, is kind of an ally ally. In an ally relationship, I’d say the Macklemore is the one “wearing the pants” if you’ll allow that phrase.
