but like also don't tell me i have a vagina lol. genitals shouldn't be gendered in general but when it comes to how people personally refer to their own parts let them call them whatever the fuck they want

implying that a vagina is inherently feminine or a penis is inherently male: bad. sucks. don't do it
using words to describe (trans) people's junk that they haven't consented to and may not want: really really awful and invalidating

i've seen this before when discussing how trans people talk about their own genitals with shit like "no that's just inaccurate. it's a vagina" and like not to be an asshole or anything but. if someone asks you not to call a part of themselves something what if you just let go of your anal definitions bs for a sec and say, Didn't Call A Part Of Their Body That

i'm not saying it's something different than what it is lmao (though even if i was who gives a shit). i'm saying that those /specific/ words for it make me uncomfortable and i have my own i generally prefer to use

@myconidiosyncrasy I've always hated the sound/feel/look of all the cis words for genitals and I'm starting to wonder if this is why.
