Can you elaborate on this? I STILL don't see how pronouns are linked to finding your private information like your credit card number or your phone number. Also this:Pronouns are identifying information, opinions aren't. Unless you were like on /baph/ on 8ch back in the day, you can't track someone down with, or validate already existing information by cross-referencing what they think about color palettes and combat mechanics. You CAN do that with pronouns however.
I'm really not sure how pronouns can be used to track you down. There are thousands if not millions of transguys in the world. I'm not seeing how me revealing that I am one is equivalent to me posting my address or credit card. Also believe me, the stuff I've learned about people here from their opinions is unbelievable.
But we can ALREADY fill out the gender in your RM Web Forums profile. Where does this cause problems?Yeah, but then you'd have subgroups of different factions saying, "Oh, well this user didn't fill out the pronouns, so that means they're an ultranationalist superfascist," or, "That user has the pronouns filled out, which means they're a cryptomarxist fellow traveler." It might sound silly to you, but I've seen that happen in many communities.
@HOLYMOTHER I think that you're being a bit silly here.
I don't understand why this became such a big discussion in my thread here.
