Stay hydrated, that's important

it seems like you might be confusing cabin fever with a fever, but that *is* good advice in general so thank you I'll continue hydrating vigorously

I have some kind of a cold that I got from my flatmate who was travelling around Finland last week, but it's very atypical compared to what corona symptoms are described as so I'm betting on it being a traditional spring cold instead of anything more serious

been staying in regardless since it's the sensible thing to do, but cabin fever started hitting hard so I'll probably at least run to the store today

I don't really get the hate for anise but I will not stand for licorice

I've got the flu, I've slept for 12 hours almost straight the past day, and my cough medicine tastes of licorice

I think this is actually what hell is like

You can still get that with tea as well.
Most of the side effects can be mitigated with moderation.
Anyways coffee tastes good and wakes me up.

Also if we're talking about digestive system issues hot sauces like Dave's Insanity can cause the real problems.

I have no issues with tea, even when I drink like a litre of black tea; on the other hand even a small cup of coffee causes my stomach to disagree with it
the end result is that if I drink coffee, it's diluted down to the colour of my skin

if it hasn't been obvious yet I kinda gave up on this year, small amount of participants plus I've been way too busy with puljuhommat (for non finns: volunteer crap I signed up for)

we can try again for christmas maybe, no promises unless forum activity really surges

I'm going to get to go and hit people with plastic sticks padded with some pipe insulation for the weekend, wish me luck on that

I just hope my leg survives the affair, since it's been having a mystical pain for the last few days now

This one admittedly applies almost exclusively to the case tupsu described better than I could. I am not claiming this is all there is to gender dysphoria, please don't read into this one too heavily.

actually, no, I don't think so - the age group I'm discussing is the late teens (15-19), once those get into deeper online socialisation and certain social networks (in particular tumblr and certain parts of twitter). if a kid below, say, 10, is exhibiting gender dysphoria, I'd be willing to bet it's not a learned behaviour/what I'm describing, unless their parents are specifically shaming them on their gender or some such matter.

I haven't talked to anyone in that age range. I have, however, spoken to a lot of people during the time I and them was/were 16/17-21/22 while they were having their crossdressing phase and were considering HRT until they realised they were just young, afraid of the world and vulnerable to influence of the internet and easy attention.

I've not personally spoken to anyone still in that age range experiencing dysphoria either, but as Granger also said earlier, everyone who I know who's 'stuck to it' (i.e. not influenced by the internet but 'authentically' trans) has stated they started feeling uncomfortable/wrong about their body at around toddler age, and it only got worse as puberty appeared. what you are describing does sound about right for what I was describing, yes.

edit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Suomi/comments … iv%C3%A4n/ fittan could find this interesting, it's a pretty nice AMA that covers a lot of the topics we've been discussing.

Granger seems to have taken over my part of the discussion really successfully, I haven't really had much to contribute

remember to kiss cute people regardless of their gender if you happen to like them

Im curious if you disagree with me on some points? A few of my points were rather controversial within the trans community when i still participated. (me getting called truscum f.e, or me being called transphobic even for daring to go stealth/viewing that as the goal)

I would probably also be seen as an evil gatekeeper and truscum by the people who use that latter term yes
my general view is that people are in charge of their own lives and should identify as they please, within some bound. I tend to state my main bound as 'could it plausibly occur naturally?' - so genderfluid people for example are cool in my book, but otherkin probably not so much (also they really don't belong in trans spaces imo, animals aren't genders)
also, I do think there's a number of over-identification issues in the community. as the term I'm using for it is implying, the result is that a number of people (often young and impressionable, or having other problems in life) end up identifying as trans, and later reconsidering - the problem, then, being whether they've gone through any irreversible procedures in that time.

I guess an attempt at a brief sum of my views could be:
- let people identify as they please, but I and many others probs won't take someone claiming they're a cat seriously
- as an extension, any kind of modifications or procedures should as a general rule be up to the person to undertake or decide upon
- however, due to current society and internet communities, a number of (in particular young) people seem to currently be beginning to transition, then eventually regretting it and reversing what they can
  - hence, I presently support time restrictions on when people can continue with non-reversible or difficult to reverse procedures; however, if (and hopefully when) the social aspects change, I feel it should move to the discretion of the person, possibly with a psychologist's sign-off (though I don't feel that's the best approach at all)
- under-18s should wait until 18 (or whatever the age of majority happens to be where you are) for non-reversible stuff, but puberty blockers are good by me.
