Refer to comment #3.
You guys really think a PROFESSIONAL WATCH MAKER would incorrectly put "IIII" instead of "IV" for the Roman Numeral 4? A PROFESSIONAL WATCH MAKER?
I can guarantee you all watch designers are intimately familiar with Roman numerals. They use Roman numerals ever fucking day, and it's common ass knowledge that "IV" = 4. Therefore, they probably used "IIII" for a DAMN GOOD reason, as comment #3 pointed out.
Y'all need to do some research before you start demonizing someone for making a "mistake" that wasn't even a real mistake because you didn't have enough time to do a Google search.

Hey, kabuza, man.
Were you banned from Google? What about Wikipedia? Or did nobody ever teach you how to search the internet?
I didn't realize you were such an expert on Roman numerals despite obviously having done no research about them.
#89 - kibuza (10/02/2015) [-]
When did I say I was an expert on them you stupid anon?
Don't put words in my mouth. Everyone who knows a little about roman numerals knows that 4 is IV, or is at least taught as IV now. People like you are the problem with making any kind of comment on the internet now, you just immediately add shit to the comment that the person didn't say just to fit your view.

again from wiki
"The "standard" forms [...] reflect typical modern usage rather than a universally accepted convention. Usage in ancient Rome varied greatly.
Roman inscriptions [...] seem to show a preference for additive forms such as IIII and VIIII instead of (or even as well as) subtractive forms such as IV and IX. Both methods appear in documents from the Roman era, even within the same document. "
So no, it's not wrong.

I think everyone's shitting on Caitlyn too much for this. It's not like she chose to get the award. She still did something brave, and likely inspired a lot of people, and it's not her fault if she got awarded an ESPY an award I didn't think people actually gave a fuck about that she didn't "deserve" since when is courage not subjective anyways? because there were better qualified athletes she shouldn't have gotten it because she hasn't been an athlete since a few decades ago . While I'll agree it was likely a controversial publicity stunt by ESPN, doesn't mean we should shit on Caitlyn because they chose her we would be encouraged to shit on Caitlyn if she consented and requested a weird sexual fantasy involving feces

Alright then , if coming out as trans is a beautiful and perfectly normal part of society, then why do so many post ops regret the decision and/or kill themselves? do you think this should be promoted as normal, instead of actually sending these people to get clinical help that doesn't involve mutilation? Do you think it's alright for all these kids that have been coming out as trans to get hormones and mutilate their genitals before they are even old enough to vote or drive? Its not about the espy's, its about the attention caitlyn is getting for something that is 1. literally a mental illness and 2. is being promoted as this courageous thing, when it's really not all that courageous
#145 - taniv (07/18/2015) [-]
Didn't say it was beautiful or "perfectly normal". All I'm saying is in the end it's their decision and we shouldn't treat them any differently for it. It should be like "oh cool you used to be a dude" and it should only matter any further if you think you might date them or have kids with them.
I don't agree with branding her as a hero, but the fact is transgendered face so much discrimination that what she did inspired people and that's pretty cool of her. It really is not her fault the media went overboard to capitalize on the feels of a "progressive" youth, though she didn't exactly turn down the attention. I'm more concerned about the fact that when she wanted to go by "Bruce" she was the creep step-dad on the Kardashians committed manslaughter, but the second she wants to go by "Caitlyn" suddenly she's an Olympic gold medalist and an inspiration. Fuck the media for its ridiculous behaviour, but only blame Caitlyn for feeding off it not initiating it.
Some post ops regret the decision, not all of them, so all that means is it should be a more well-versed topic and the pre-ops should be way better educated. If this illness had another cure or another treatment that worked, then that would be preferable, and you can bet your ass a lot of trans people probably hoped for one growing up. Should kids get it? Fuck if I know, probably not, but I'm not well educated on the topic. The discussion on timing, and whether or not the procedure should occur, should happen between the doctors, counsellors, and the patient or legal guardian . If news broke that the vast majority of post-ops regretted the decision or committed suicide and not because of the discrimination they received for taking the surgery mind you then yeah, I'd want to get involved to protect future generations from making that mistake, but it doesn't seem to be the case.
#150 - taniv (07/18/2015) [-]
That shit is shocking. I understand where you're coming from. But are they committing suicide because they personally regret the decision, because of the psychological effects of hormonal and surgical treatment, or because of the societal backlash? Will acceptance movements lower the rate of suicide among transgendered people? Also, do people who feel gender dysphoria have a lower rate of suicide if they don't use clinical methods to alter their body?
Just some important questions that I don't know the answers to, it's important to find them, and if you're right and these treatment methods are more than just ineffective, but dangerous, then I'll get on board with you on flipping the fuck out about why we allow them. Either way, we need better treatment plans because a lot of transgendered people don't want radical and permanent change as much as they want to feel comfortable in their own body.
#154 - spceinvdr (07/18/2015) [-]
its mostly the first two. its not the acceptance, its the surgery itself. It really doesnt help them at all. they have a literal mental illness that despite what everyone says has ~50% regret rate. Many clinical psychologists claim that therapy has helped many transgender people. Im angry because people are promoting it when trans people need psychological help instead of being goaded into chopping off penises/ adding penises in an attempt to cure an extremely serious form of dysphoria. Whats worse is that CHILDREN are being encouraged to go through with trans surgery at the age of 16 or even younger. dailycaller.com/2015/07/04/california-family-discusses-4-year-old-transgender-child/
this shit is cancer

you have to have extensive therapy done before they even allow the idea for hormone therapy in most states, let alone gender reassignment surgery
I've been out as trans for three years, and seeing a therapist that entire time, and I'm still not 100% ok'd to start hormones just because they have to make sure it's the right option
if you aren't trans I get it, difficult to understand, but fuck off with the saying it's cancer
hormone imbalances that are linked to the reason people are trans in the first place cause an increase in suicide rate, and on top of that yes, people harrassing trans people DOES increase suicide risk
also, in nearly 100% of cases, recommendation for pre-puberty trans people is usage of hormone supressors www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/news/8454002/Puberty-blocker-for-children-considering-sex-change.html which are 100% reversable in effects and literally just make life easier for trans people
there's a reason that being trans isn't considered a mental illness, and it's because it's not someone being sick in the head. the mental illness components come into play when the gender dysphoria starts, leading to depression, anxiety disorders, and that shit
if you ask anyone with more than 2 years of working with trans people as experience, this is all basic knowledge for them
#159 - taniv (07/18/2015) [-]
As far as I know, which isn't very far, it works on a case by case basis. Some people genuinely benefit from the surgery and seemed to enjoy life as the other sex, and I don't think those cases should be dismissed. Other people might just have a mental illness that's projected through gender dysphoria, and that's why alternative methods of treatment should always be attempted first and foremost. The growing issue is that people are going to start labeling themselves with "gender dysphoria" before being clinically diagnosed, and before understanding what it means. If someone feels like they should look down and see a vagina, that's one thing, if a dude likes to wear dresses that's another. Either way, I agree, clinical therapy should be the primary treatment method, but we can't forget that there are cases where clinical therapy doesn't work but the hormonal treatment does.
I think it's ridiculous that kids get this treatment, not only because they're way too young to make a permanent life decision like that, but because it should take years of therapy before people resort to surgery or hormone treatment.
