The term "egg" is a very useful term to for trans people to retroactively describe our past selves. It is also useful in the abstract sense, and having a shared language brings the community together.
The line should be drawn at using it to describe actively-questioning people.
@QuestForTori I basically operate of the level of "egg is fine but don't use it on/about people without their consent" which is a basic and fair standard imho
I don't care for the term, but it's a valuable tool for others and it's no skin off my back.
@QuestForTori I'm personally not comfortable with it, but like...it's not a slur. I think people shouldn't be hassled for one using it to describe oneself.
I have a problem with people insisting OTHER folks are eggs but even without that term, it'd still be a problem. It's not "egg"'s fault.
@QuestForTori and like, I never lived a life where I was ever an 'egg' that 'hatched' but like... It doesn't take much consideration to realize that /not every trans person had the same experience/
@QuestForTori and honestly??? Anything that allows younger trans people to be able to explore themselves when the whole world is against them... I'm not gonna fight against that.
