2022.01.20 13:27 AutumnTheTired There exists animosity for trans people pretty much everywhere you look, even other trans spaces. Bigotry, discrimination, and dismissal exists even here. When its called out, it often falls on deaf ears. Unity seems a far off hopeless goal.
At a casual glance or scroll reddit might seem at first to be a unique tidal pool of waves all crashing against each other from every possible direction. Racism, transphobia, conservatism, progressivism, homophobia, misogyny, and a thousand other movements interacting with and spilling over each other. It's really not unique in this, reddit is simply a convenient place for these movements to interact.
And lately, it seems that transphobia has even spilled itself out and into otherwise unrelated movements. I feel that there is nowhere left you can go without experiencing a degree of animosity anymore. No matter what virtual space inevitably transphobic disparate elements can and will crop up.
But in particular it's disturbing to see these elements in otherwise transpositive areas of reddit. Dismissal and coercion of experience have always been issues amongst trans communities, and for the last decade on trans reddit it has always been here. Trans men expected to be pinnacles of total unerring masculinity, trans women expected to atone for their being born and assigned the gender they were, non-binary people being outright rejected by a sizeable ingroup - and talked about as oddities amongst others. Racism and xenophobia are also here, and when people speak out about it more often then not people rush to put up their defenses and explanations instead of actually reflecting on what they said. These are not new problems, but lately division seems again to be sowing seeds here.
No group has a singular monopoly on the trans experience. No one man can lay claim to manhood as a concept, nor can one woman lay claim to womanhood as a concept. The non-binary and fluid experiences are impossible to be standardized, no matter how loudly some will yell about it. In general, the whole point of this movement the whole point of the push for transgender rights is to give people the rights of self identification. To remove the expectation for all people to fall neatly into categories from which we can judge them. Its the whole point of asking for pronouns, the whole point of breaking assumptions and encouraging people to be themselves and others to be respectful of who people are.
So, when these problems come up again here it's not surprising (in all other places they never really go away) but its important to talk about them in open ways. People have different experiences, other factors to their lives that affect them. The experience of being trans as one race and as another is different and they're both relevant and important to talk about. Some people can't safely transition, some people who do transition fear for their lives every day and this may be one of the only places where they can feel actual acceptance. The last thing this community needs to do is foster the same attitudes that put people here in the first place.
There's no naming and shaming, there's no one group who is responsible for this. I myself have been influenced by outside discrimination and found myself reflecting on things I've said and beliefs I held for a long time. The point isn't perfection, the point is moving forward. Acknowledging that you've said something that you now understand to have been discriminatory and dismissive isn't a shameful thing, it's one step in moving forward. Just some thoughts on how I've chosen to look ahead and grow from the mistakes I myself have made.
I feel we would all benefit from spending some more time listening to each other, and encouraging everyone else to do the same. This community is essentially a microcosm of humanity, with all the same attitudes and beliefs reflected here as in all the world itself. It might make sense to think that transphobia would find no home here but under scrutiny that doesn't add up. We may fancy ourselves better educated than the rest of the world on these issues, but even if we are that doesn't mean we're now safe to dismiss each other's experiences. The one understanding we all have is transphobia and the difficulties of not fitting neatly into greater society, that alone should lend itself to understanding others when they say they deal with bigotry in other forms.
At the end of the day transpositive thought and the movement for trans rights are at the forefront of the perception of progressive movements on reddit. We broke the system. After hundreds of years of abuse trauma and death, much of it still continuing to this day, we've broken through in the public consciousness and people today are more aware of us than they ever have been. While that means that we have more sympathetic allies than we ever have had, it also means that we're the first thing regressive movements claw at to find their footings. If we don't accept each other, if we don't listen to each other, how could we ever stand our ground? We need to shelter each other. We need trans spaces to be welcoming to all of us.

2022.01.20 13:27 Navtej_7 Why is that nobody believes in me?
So, I want to tell you my story and please read all, and tell me that what should I do?
Well, my life is like, nobody ever believed in me and no one will I think. Its my family, friends, and everyone who always says I screw up most of the things which I do and always says that I can't do anything in my life except my one best friend.
So, if I talk about my family then I want to tell you that my big brother, he has like some businesses and very successful and like earning some very good money. And, he is like in his 20s only and here I am. It's not like I am not good in studies or I am out of the track or anything like that.
Let's just forget about the friends, and at least my family should believe in me and encourage me.
Its just that I screw up things sometimes and is wasting my time according to my family. And, my both of the parents listen to my brother a lot and they just feel like whatever he is saying is right.
And, today he called us and just causal talk and staring talking like I am unworthy and I cannot do anything in ny life well.
But I really believe in me and think that I can also be successful in my life and can outperform everyone else.
At my age my brother was also like shit, he didn't used to study at all and just do nothing. But since he starting earning the money my parents perspective like f*ing change completely and, my parents really don't like care about me and isn't like happy from me.
But now I've started doing something online and hope that I be also successful int it. And, I just want to prove my parents that I am also worthy and can be more good and successful than my brother.
So, please if anybody can give me any suggestions or anything, it would just feel great and if anything like this or relates to this happened to you and how did you dealt with it and most importantly what I should to do prove them that I am also that worthy

After about 600 rounds my Magnum Research 1911G 5" is intermittently not locking back after last round. I've noticed that the slide stop will at times pop out a bit so my guess is that it's worn.
Is this a common ware part after 600 rounds?
