For the hundredth time, yes.
Don't get agitated at me. You're the one bouncing back at forth. If your concept of labels apply to every word, then why do you care about the word? Only if your concept varies per word, will using "***/gender" would matter. The word could be rapist. The result would be the same.
I dunno, <15% of the people who know i am trans have ever once called me a man or boy, or referred to me as "he" since they found out. And most of those were accidental, quickly followed by a correction and apology.
So, that's what this is all about. It has nothing to do with actual definitions or facts, but a personal issue. If what you said were true, then we wouldn't be having this conversation. I did not create this issue. You're confusing personal preference/respect with laws,rules and regulations. I have a friend who's relative is a homosexual man. She and her family refer to him as a girl, even though he doesn't portray one. To me, that is insulting. Rather or not you are homosexual, a man is still a man. HOWEVER, if that's his preference, then so be it.
That logic does not, nor should not, apply to laws, rules and regulations that discriminate based on ***. There are, and should always be, guidelines. Either get rid of the discrimination or support it. I shouldn't be able to put on a wig and be able to compete as a woman in scenarios where there are *** discrimination.
What people call you is not the topic. The topic is how to integrate trans in *** discriminating scenarios. There is absolutely nothing "wrong" with calling a man "she" in the men's locker room. The issue isn't rather or not we call the man a "she", but rather he should be in the woman's locker room, playing on an athletic women's team, etc.
Yes, and what i've said is that i'm a woman who has a *****. Surely you've read that much? And yet, you clearly still think of me as a woman.
You are, but until it becomes widespread (let's say, no less than 50% of the people in a community for it to even be considered), don't be surprised when no one accepts it as valid.
I did not read that. I apologize for overlooking that.
I'm not going to insult you if you prefer to be seen as a woman. However, that respect is mutual as you cannot enforce your belief onto me if you believe in your concept of labels. As long as you ask me, you are a man. Men have penises and women have vaginas, along with other biological differences. Of course there are rare exceptions, but those exceptions do not include a "change of heart". You don't have monthly periods, you can't give birth, you don't have all of the other medical/biological differences that come with being a woman. If you're going to spout out that labels are just words, then I'm able to exercise that same right. I'm not going to get in your face and yell "YOU'RE A MAN!", because I couldn't care less how you label yourself. At the same time, don't expect people to deny science because you want to be different either.
So, I ask again, what's your beef? What rights?
