Bombardment of hate on Social Media


CelaTracy23

Recommended Posts

I just spent an hour unsubscribing to, and making sure I don't receive any more video links for not just trans phobics but real trans haters out there on YouTube.   Not sure how I started to receive so many, perhaps my algorhythmn from searching topics  but geez, there are some real abusive jerks on YouTube that don't even deserve to be given the time of day.   But some of the remarks from these conservative commentators out there are seriously abusive.   To one young transwoman I wrote that she should consider suing a commentator for defamation.    Their display of just about every cognitive distortion is absurd - and they have their fans, some have up to 3 million subscribers.   These were people like Matt Walsh, Candace Owens, Odins Men,  The Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro.   If you have never heard of any of them, more power to you!

Hopefully now that I reworked my YouTube site I won't get anymore videos suggested on my homepage.   And move on from this crap.   My therapist recommended I quit watching and absorbing negative news.  At the same I would like to see these people sued for their hate speeches, I also realize there will always be haters out there.  This past year though has been the worst ever it seems for ther trans community.  It's time for me to absorb more positive news.

I have recently started following some of the YT Shorts made by some of my favorite trans influencers. The hate that some of the conservative commenters spew is absolutely intolerable. In fact, it’s to the point now where I simply avoid the comment section altogether because of the idiocy and ignorance posted there.

 

As far as the algorithms YT uses, I have no idea how they decide what to present to us next but I know it’s not based on anything I’ve ever chosen or showed an interest. Currently, YT has been bombarding me with video’s showing Komodo Dragon’s swallowing goats whole. I’ve never liked or commented on one but YT serves those Komodo Dragon videos up as if it’s my life’s passion.🤔

While I do not know the YT algorithm I do know that other searches for actual Trans information show the really nasty stuff on the first return, all of it falling into the Porn category.  The WHY of that is simple I am afraid, the Porn is the most looked for material from many parts of the country, none of them ostensibly Trans friendly in a tiny bit.  We stand as in the same light as any adult entertainer to them, and while they crave it with drooling faces, they claim we are at fault for their lechery.  The want us forced out of public approval and back into their waking self indulgence when no one else is watching them.  My late brother was an Adult Entertainment Junkie and stuff I cleaned off his computer when I got it as the administrator of his estate just made me shake my head.  He had trouble with my Transition but needed my family help and was at least civil, but he had Trans videos he had downloaded.  I saw the bills and easily realized why he was always needing extra money.  UGH.  Nevertheless it is BIG profitable BUSINESS.

The more each side fights what they don’t believe in, the  more the war. 
 

Spewing hate  and influencing decay  to  the end. 
 

thank you for allowing me in this space to spew.

There does seem like there has been a recent change. If you typed in “transgender” up until recently on YouTube, there would be many personal sites, people talking about transition, makeup and hair tips, surgeries, their transition timelines, etc. Now the same search pulls up very little, if any, of that, but instead, lots of anti-trans hate content. I am not sure if this represents a change in the algorithm by YouTube, censorship, or creators are becoming more fearful and not making pro-trans content, or maybe the anti-trans people are pushing harder to get their messages out. Maybe all of that.

 

Social media, the news, and entertainment sites all seem to have degraded severely over the years as evidenced by the comments in the comments sections. For those of us who create online content, that can mean going offline for a time and shutting off/deleting inappropriate comments.

      Sounds like a mullet! lol   My hair is continuing to grow. The longer it gets, the easier it is for it to find its natural style. After I dry it out of the shower, it actually parts itself. Today, I manually parted it off center and initially brushed it behind my ears but was then happy to let it do its thing and flop where it wanted to. Looking in the mirror at times, I became the sort of woman with pretty hair that I often envy in public. It is so affirming!

      It's so hard to keep up with all the goings on when you don't visit here for a while!   @Birdie, my condolences. Losing someone is never easy, but more so if they are taken before time.    @Ashley0616, I'm also sorry for your loss. My Cousin Count presently sits at 13 survivors from 17 born. It's scary, especially considering that I'm one of the older ones! I also sincerely hope that someday you get out of that darn dating revolving door too!   Just to prove that as one door closes another one opens, my wife and I became grandparents again today! A yet un-named girl born to my son and daughter in law, a couple of weeks early, but otherwise in perfect health. It's Girl City in my family; I have one son and two daughters, one daughter in law, and now two granddaughters. Oh, and a wife and a mother!

      Good morning   so much happened since my last visit and that was just yesterday.  Back to 4am today, off tomorrow my schedule bounces around all week but Friday morning I leave for my weekend of Lay ministry school.    let’s see, guy who wanted to see your DL, run away and block that one.  Doesn’t sound right to me. Sorry for your losses this week.  Always sad to loos a good friend they are so hard to come by, and same is true with cousins, although I never knew any of mine.     One thing I don’t have and never will is a LBD. Too old to do one any justice.  Besides where does one hide the 45?     Don’t meet a stranger without one!   well gotta try to walk the dog.  It’s raining but not cold.     and don’t take everything I say to heart.  Sometimes my sense of humor is a lot worse than I realize.  LOL   Willow

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Sarah.  I think this site will live up to your expectations as a friendly, supportive and knowledgeable place.  I know that transition can be stressful and daunting and we've all been where you are now at some point.  I do hope that you are seeing, or have seen, a gender therapist or at least and M.D. to ensure that your hormone use is safe and appropriate.  We want everyone to be safe, because hormones can be dangerous if not done correctly with good supervision.  If you don;t have a gender therapist, that would be help to add to your tool kit, too.   Please ask any questions that come to mind.  The only thing we can't answer is about hormone dosages.  Please have a look around and enjoy your time here.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Update:  Judge blocked the AG until a hearing on March 25.  I don't think that hearing will go well for the Bully In Chief.   https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/judge-blocks-texas-collecting-info-transgender-children-receiving-107731447   Carolyn Marie

      PFLAG and the families have some powerful legal minds working for them.  Paxton may please his base of bigots, but he won't win.  I think he knows it, too.   Carolyn Marie

      This one is not that far "off the wall." They just consider us mentally ill anyway.  We need to be corrected somehow - kinda like the Chinese do with the Uyghurs.  Time to break out the pink triangles.

      hi i guess this is where i tell you about myself and some goings on. my quick and dirty trans history about 20 off years ago I confessed to my best friend about wanting to be a girl she was super supportive said she'd get everyone to use whatever name I want and treat me like one of the girls at the time I didn't know transitioning really existed the LGBT was really just an LG so I didn't think it was actually possible to more than cross dress and dismissed the idea and forgot about until 6 years ago I met a transwoman in a Discord community which and awoken 20 year old memories, a few years later after self debate I admitted to myself that I was trans eventually came out to a few people and in October of last year started taking hormones. The actually transitioning is taking time I duelmode mainly being my true self at home for right now. How I ended up here: I wasn't prepare for the hormones which have been a struggle wild mood swings and just constant anxiety attacks, I've only recently been able to clear my head and quell my anxiety with medication enough to function. I had some bad moment and alienated myself from some people dear to me and I'm questioning whether to keep going or not. I've been doing a lot to improve my situation picking myself up doing self care but I realize I can't do this on my own so I've been adding to my support network, people in my circles, support groups and communities like here. From what I read so far this feels like a wonderful community and I look forward to being apart of it. Thank you

      All I can do is shake my head. This will be followed by the other 19 R states soon enough. They are more persistent than piranha. A few days ago I received an email from a recruiter trying to recruit me to a hospital in Oklahoma. I told them that I was a transgender female and would not consider Oklahoma. The recruiter could have cared less.   Sadly, I am not sure the rest of the public really cares what happens to us. There is going to be some massive pain down the road regardless of who wins the national election. I think the next logical move is that they will try to roll back the insurance coverages we gained with private insurers.   Short of a huge blue wave hitting the country, they have zeroed in on us. I just wonder if there will be Schutzstaffel troops coming to take us away. Seems like the only missing piece.
