My dad would say shit like that. When I came out to him as transmasc and requested he/they pronouns, he did a complete 180° and ate his words.
So I guess it would depend on what kind of man your dad is. It's real easy to mock topics you don't have to face every day, and my dad was brave enough to admit how cowardly it was to talk shit about a whole demographic behind their backs.
My mum used to do this too, whereas my dad is totally left wing, accepting everyone, ally dude. You wouldn't expect my mum to be the supportive one while my dad doesn't try at all...
Do it with a trans person and 5 minutes later you've invented neopronouns and a tragic backstory for the bird. With a cis person, there's a chance you get this. A hard lesson. :/
There once was a bird called Haliot. Xe used xe/xer pronouns but unfortunately everyone else only used she/her. “Neopronouns are dumb” they all said. “Its too complicated and confusing” they said. This drove the bird to fly far far away and change xer name to Xe, to get everyone to refer to xerself as Xe. Then, almost as if magically, when xe got to a new place, everyone accepted xer name as Xe and began using xe/xer pronouns for xer.
>!There was only one problem. It was an alien xenoplanet, and those aliens were hungry… Xey found it cute that this Earth creature tried to infringe upon xeir formal pronouns of xey/xim, and promptly ate xer, ending the story of Xe…!<
Welp, now you know something about your dad, if you didn't already.
And every time you complain, we add three hundred more! Soon we'll be just like The Shrooms™
Start using the wrong pronouns when talking to him. From the looks of it, I'm suuuuuuure it won't bother him
No, don’t do this. It sends the message that misgendering is okay as a punishment or to teach a lesson. Misgendering is *never* okay, no matter the situation.
I’ve always wanted (though I’ve never done it) to start using the wrong pronouns for someone like that, so when they inevitably complain, I could answer “why do you care so much about pronouns?!”
Start calling your father she. Im sure it will be ok with him, since yk, he dont care about pronouns
Literally had that happen with two friends I care deeply about. Cause they dont like Non-Binary people and find them as an insult to Transfolk. And it was a mix of feelings from that
thats when you pull out the big guns "ok, im gonna use she/her pronouns for you if they don't matter"
Option (only in the moment): use she/her to his face until he responds, then you can say "see, even you care."
use she/her pronouns for him and see how much he cares 😎
Lowkey just had a convo with my mum about pronouns, totally feel that 😩😩
Yeah... One of my family's birds who we initially thought was male turned out to be female. (You can tell gender by the color of a budgie's nose, but only when they reach maturity.) My dad apologized to her, for calling her 'he' for those few months. And I'm just standing there thinking about how he purposefully misgenders me every day and refuses to hear otherwise.
I think I just overheard my dad saying that incest is not as bad as homosexuality, what the actual fuck is going on in there...
My dad thinks cousins marrying is okay and that 14 year olds can get married- I don't know.
4 is too many (like the main ones)
My dad made fun of my testicles once.
I said I was cold. He was drunk and said freezing them off might save me the trouble of bottom surgery.
Literally on the same night I was about to come out to my family, my step dad and uncle went on a full 20 minute long transphobic rant...
So on completely unrelated topics I rescheduled when I come out to my family.
Trans people making fun of themselves, others, and the situations they find themselves in with memes and gifs.
