Doge is not the same thing as doggo.
Lots of young people near me at work love Doggo.
I took the test and
Your gender is: THE INKY VOID BETWEEN STARS
YOU BET YOUR SWEET BIPPY IT IS
Your gender is: UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Your gender is not yet finished! They’re still working on it – check back in a bit.
Fucking British builders
Maybe it's magnified because I hate dogs (people like us exist and are sick of hiding ) but "doggo" and "pupper" are both possibly my least favourite words to read on a computer screen.
I've never heard of these words in my life. Are you into pup play S and M sites?
What on earth is PUPPER?
They're passé anyway - everyone knows birds are the new it animal in the world of Facebook memes
I saw a documentary about that sort of S&M thing and it seemed quite grubby and low-rent. Shoot for a more exotic animal at least when you're in the bedroom, a dog is so domesticated. The hot new thing is pretending to be a sloth, or maybe that's just me.
(shit "millennial" internet phrases that are starting to cross over from America basically)
I had a friend who got into the whole pup thing and it was quite a scene when he and his other PUP FRIEND starting YELPING at each other across the bar
I asked if I could see his hood/mask thing and he said I could touch the leather one but not the one with fur (who knew there were two of them) because that was the one that corresponded to his pup alter ego
We're not friends anymore for unrelated reasons
My favourites are DAB and SHIP
It all sounds very DREARY
Trying to be doggo about the fact I've got no work to do #pupper
There's no need to be so HASH TAG about it all.
Whatever happened to just CALLING A DOG A DOG
Still waiting for that polyphonic Crazy Frog ringtone to go off, I'll bet
Your gender is: MURDER MYSTERY
Your gender is DEAD, and foul play is suspected. But the body was found in a windowless room, and the door had been locked from the inside. What's more, the police are useless! Who can possibly piece together the evidence to solve the perfect crime? This looks like a case for… BATTLEFLICK CACKLEDASH!
benedict cumberbatch aside, i'm fine with that.
There was a heated debate on The Big Question yesterday morning about non-binary people and how everyone should be encouraged to use non gender specific terminology, which featured a woman from "Conservative Women" exclaiming to the non-binary person of stereotypical female appearance "this woman is clearly a woman - everyone watching can see she is a woman! - I will not refer to her as they!"
It was an interesting argument about they vs he or she, and the respect that should be shown to individuals when it's their choice, but I'm not sure people are going to change their language to an extent of talking about other people. Terminology like firefighter, police officer, chairperson, partner are fine but I can't see him or her or his or her's being phased out in informal discussion.
I've managed to speak about Mr Shirl for 20 years without ever being entirely GENDER SPECIFIC because MIND YOUR OWN FUCKING BUSINESS so I don't think we need new words
Somebody I used to work with is into all that pup-play nonsense and he and his friends always use those words. I don't mean to kink-shame (I'm lying. I totally mean to kink-shame) but the facebook feed full of grown men as a rubber dogs and videos of ACTUAL DOGS makes me shudder. There also seems to be a massive overlap between people into pup-play and people whose online behaviour hasn't been updated since 2007.
I know this is getting a little off-topic, but lets be real, PUPPER is now a valid gender identity.
Oh it always is. Everyone just ups the Seroxat and pretends they're not dying inside. Was it the really depressing one with the contestant in the EUROPUPPER COMPETITION (or whatever the fuck it was) who had that revolting handler and the wife at home?
I think it might have been. Whatever gets people through the day, I'm as sex-positive as anyone, as long as I don't have to see, feel or do anything, but dressing up and pretending to be an anthropomorphic dog? How far do you go? It's a slippery slope, ending in Winalot for dinner and making BEDROOM EYES at poor Buster while he takes a shit.
A couple of years ago a friend of mine who is a pup came to Amsterdam for Fetish Pride.
I stayed at home while he attended the 'puppy play workshop' in the leather bar during the afternoon.
However I did go out that evening with him and some of his fetishy friends. They were all bedecked head to toe in leather - whereas I felt all underdressed in jeans, trainers and a t-shirt (I had earlier that ay refused to spend hundreds of euros on a nice rubber gown as I didn't think it was really me, and I didn't really feel like fitting in).
The entire group got turned away from Dirty Dick's Bar on the Warmoesstraat because I was not adhering to the dress code. Instead we went to The Eagle a few doors down which was not quite as strict - having said that I was the only person in civvies. When my friend put on his dog mask I made my excuses and left. I couldn't take him seriously.
I mean he's a Celine Dion fan for heaven's sake.
Advice: if you're ever in a fetish club, and you ask the way to the toilet, don't ask someone in a dog mask when the music is too loud as you won't be able to lip read.
Should come in handy this weekend when I accidentally attend Berlin Fetish Weekend
OMG RON I'M ALSO IN BERLIN*
*- But not til Wednesday
Will the missus be partaking?
Big Ron IS the missus.
There was a discussion at work the other week about whether it was acceptable to use the words masculine and feminine any more, prompted by a woman taking umbrage at someone's description of her scarf.
I made my excuses and left.
Sally mentioned LGBTQI on Corrie the other day, I immediately thought of this thread.
I like it when life imitates art like that.
Oh it appears she's been at said event in tonight's episode. Rosie is 'straight identifying' and Sophie is 'openly lesbian' for the record.
She won't be attending.
I leave on Tuesday. The universe has kept us apart.
not quite sure where to post this. guess here's as good a place as any.
"Shout out to the bi's, you ain't gotta pick a side" - FUCK THE FUCKING FUCK OFF.
This is from the Labour manifesto
The only time I'm conscious of the term gender assignment used is when describing gender re-assignment surgery. Is it used in another context very often?
I get that transgender has become the more common term for trans people. Has transsexual become an eyebrow raising term that well meaning older people leading sheltered lives use, like half-caste, coloured and handicapped?
It isn't, which is why they're changing it to gender identity.
Not quite but going down that road.
I was always convinced I'd be baffled as a pensioner. I now realise it's going to happen a lot sooner than that.
