I hate this person.

I want to headdesk hard enough to break my glasses through
my eyes and die of a subdural hematoma.
No, these Adora Brat Bat types are annoying, but come on, lighten up, it is pretty funny lol! Doesn't make me want to run into a steamroller at all ( ^o^)
You're just mad that he is judging you for the unrefined way you drink tea.

One thing that genuinely fascinates me is this phenomenon of "low budget goths". I have a friend who falls into this category. The guy is ALWAYS dressed to the nines - a new extravagant outfit every week, covered with goth-bling, expensive makeup smeared all over his face... yet he was a homeless crack addict for YEARS, and currently lives in a trailer with his grandma, working part-time at Walmart for minimum wage.
How the hell do these people manage to stay so frou-frou when they're flat broke?
Well I'll be.
Wherein our hero talks about buying spooky accoutrements at Walmart. Also, according to the comment section, TJ Maxx is another good place to find goth swag on a budget.

Oh yeah, ashtar, are you going to submit his "Damaged Fox Bones" video? Because if not I will.

Doesn't sound like a "He". Sounds like a genetic female. I'm calling it a "her".
He is a Female To Male trans* person, but has a very loose and individualistic definition of what it means to present as male. If you wanna be a boy I'll call you 'he' even if you're a stupid weirdo.
Is it gay if you would an FTM?
Transgender doesn't sound like "born with both parts", so you're still the sex you started as, regardless of behavior. It's a she. I can call it a her now. Thanks for the clarification!
A. Genitalia isn't all that important to our actual understanding of gender. How you look and act are more important. Also, hormones.
B. Some people seem genuinely very unhappy with the gender they got stuck with, and much happier as the other one. Some of them are cool people. They have to put up with a lot of shit from people about this.
B. It doesn't cost me anything to change the pronouns I use.
C (which you labeled B, but hey, labeling is bad, I guess): The problem is when people get offended at common usage. It's cumbersome to turn every pronoun into s/he (which isn't even pronounceable), though the use of "they" as non-gender-specific is gaining ground. In this case, where no other info was available, an honest first impression shouldn't be discounted as derisive unless there are other cues available or the person makes their preference known.
Stop being sexist, SPK, you non-privilege-checking neanderthal. The correct pronoun for everyone you see is "xe".
And if you watch other xir other videos, xe actually addresses this matter. Apparently, the fact that xe is totally feminine, wears girly clothes, wears makeup, dates boys, etc etc etc, is all taken as "proof" by certain close-minded TG individuals that xir "male identity" is a crock. For example:
Life is haaaaarrrrrrdddddd.
Genitals are important to my understanding of gender. You can be gay and still be a man. Liking mansex doesn't make you a women, your penis doesn't go away. You just have it in a butt now, and are still the male you began as.
Who you are attracted to has no bearing on which gender you identify as. I know a dude who began life as a woman. He got his tits cut off, but still has a vagina. He identifies as a gay man and is married to a man. He's a really cool guy, and seems male enough if you don't look in his pants. He claims he experiences himself as a man and I'm not in a position to say he's lying about that.
Its weird seeing my generation begin the transformation into confused angry old people as society begins to outpace us. Gender expression is not what's ridiculous about this person. And in general, the less you know about a stranger's anus and genitalia, the better.

I've known a few people like this, unfortunately, during my somewhat nomadic early-to-mid 20s where I found myself living here and there - the worst of these wasn't so much goth but his regular mode of dress, his fashions could only be described as causing him to look like a cross between Pee Wee Herman and a Victorian era dandy with some sort of vague terminal illness. He was a massively self-absorbed and self-impressed drama queen (and a college dropout who'd been majoring in drama) who rarely attempted to seek gainful employment and was often content to sponge off of some of family and friends, at least those relations and friends who had not wised up and refused to loan him any money, which he tended to spend on clothes, clothes, more clothes and gin and clove cigarettes which he smoked in a cigarette holder.

I looked up this tumblr and it's really just a bunch of basic etiquette for tea and manners. Really it's like those geeky guys who wear business suits and carry canes and listen to jazz because "that's what they did in the 40s". Its really some idealized stereotype.
If I was going to cosplay a 40s guy I'd be a merchant marine on shore leave, drunk and crying about the buddies I lost on the Murmansk convoy and demanding that they play "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" over and over and over.
