TOTALLY FUCKING OFFENSIVE (this exchange happened on spirit day)

SORRY TRANS OR NONBINARY PEOPLE. YOU DON'T EXIST. LOL.

Sorry, everyone that was congratulating DA for changing their banner to purple. You were being lied to.

They aren't going to fix the lack of a third gender option, they don't plan on it. It's not a mistake like livejournal's was.

If you don't support trans or genderqueer or nonbinary people but you support homosexuality you need to go fuck right off right now.

deviantART is full of open opinions and representation. Stirring up a ruckus is probably the simplest and most direct way of bringing equal representation to the LGBTQ community and its artists. Rally up your journals, fire up those tablets. Want to make this site better for its members? Show them a reason.

outside of the female/male idea of gender. Either somewhere in between or no gender identity at all.

Ugh. Completely agreed. In the old days, I recall my gender wasn't listed on my page. I wish it were still like that, since personally I just don't think my gender should have anything to do with my art (provided I actually post some art one of these days).
The only way around it is to NOT HAVE UPDATED YOUR PROFILE SINCE THE SWITCH. It's stupid. Some people don't want their sex posted, not just because they might be transgendered/gender queer, but simply because it's a matter of privacy. And saying DA isn't 'obligated' to change it is just silly; the option was there before, so why on earth couldn't they bring it back if there's all this flap about it?

Don't get me started on FB.

There was the option to hide it, but then your stats page would refer to you as he or she. And you could have hidden that, too. But I think that's pretty crap. It's like you have less options because you don't think your gender has anything to do with your art? How fucked up is that?

It's like a punishment. I mean, a pretty small one, sure, but it's there.
