gender, passing Show more
so tpassing.com is a safe site for people to post pictures / videos / audio of themselves and get unbiased feedback about how well they pass and how they can pass better
some features i love:
- age voting (especially nice for transmasc folks)
- giving feedback makes your post appear higher, getting feedback lower (i call this "coolness", after Ludum Dare)
- web of trust: only people with good feedback or posts of their own can see your post (if you enable this)
hi. if i just followed you, you probably know my alt, who doesn't post about gender stuff. (that's because, i realized too late, i picked a username traceable to me, woops)
well, sometimes i wanna talk about that stuff so i have this acct, which is anonymous. incidentally, much of the stuff i want to talk about is my #foss site tpassing.com, because i think its good and i want people to know about it
btw friends don’t let friends say “preferred pronouns”
it’s just “pronouns”
preference implies the user has any choice

hmmm, what's the statistical method here? bayes law maybe?
bayes law says:
probability a person is trans given their name:
P(trans) | P(name) = (P(name) | P(trans) * P(trans)) / P(name)
ok then assuming:
P(name) | P(trans) ~= P(name in 2018) [meh, but closest i can get easily]
P(trans) ~= .005
= (.0019 * .005) / (.00013)
= SEVEN FUCKING PERCENT
what have i DONE??
i have all the internalized-s
haha, just realized my avi is literally more androgynous than i am. i'm subverting the trans avatar trope

ok let's say, i see a person who's clearly trans[masculine] but ~andro. (and assuming i can't hear others use pronouns / have a reason to distrust them.) do i:
1. use [he/him] pronouns until corrected
2. ask for pronouns
being binary, i would prefer the former - in fact i'd be insulted by the second (A because it means you clocked me, and B because IMO i present binary)
but i guess it's kinda hard for people with NB pronouns to constantly tell people about them
wadda ya think?
