    1. if you were straight you’d be probably an altright homophobe asshole not tolerating that someone can be born as gay

  1. Some of the people here would do well to consider the recent science showing that being trans is in fact real and not just “fancying to be a different gender”.

    I saw someone complaining in the comments on this blog he other day that there are too man posts about trans issues but comments like the ones above show very clearly why these posts are still needed even in the gay community.

    1. Today’s trans politics should share some blame for the responses out of people like Horsey and others, because it consistently failed to connect gender dysphoria with brain structure or other forms of intersex status, in its explanations to the public.

      Instead of telling the public that gender dysphoria stems from being born part way between male and female, it said that someone is trans depending on how they “feel” or “identify”, with no reference to the research (by the way which has been around for a long time).

      Naturally that’s going to be confusing for a lot of people. Gender and pronouns are not only a personal thing, they are a community act. The expectation that everyone has to use “he/his/him” with who looks like a woman is going to run into problems because all humans generalize from what they see… there’s no way around that. That’s not to say that trans people shouldn’t be accepted or that they don’t deal with all kinds of negative treatment, but this could have been avoided if they’d chosen a different political strategy.

      1. “Instead of telling the public that gender dysphoria stems from being born part way between male and female, it said that someone is trans depending on how they “feel” or “identify”, with no reference to the research (by the way which has been around for a long time). ”

        That’s a very good point. Thanks.
