Tuesday's HOT MIC

Tuesday's HOT MIC

I still think that if I questioned your identities, and how truthful they are, you'd feel bullied. But, Paula-- sorry if I don't feel a lot of sympathy for Christians (who are still the normative majority). I'm not one to talk about privilege, but come on. Are you actually suggesting that the pain of being counter-PC is the same as feeling like you must transition your gender and everything about the life you've known? I think that the very fact that Caitlyn Jenner underwent surgery means that she felt incredibly strongly about this. Not a lot of cisgender men are lining up to have that procedure on a whim. Also, this sounds like the harms of not being considerate, rather than the harms of being considerate. Correctly identifying others, and making them feel just a little better for not having gone through their day without being confronted, didn't cause any harm for you.

And Tyler, citing the exceptions is not proof that the rule doesn't work. Again, not a lot of people are choosing to undergo such extreme measures without being pretty sure it's what they want. You mentioned that you're planning on having kids-- what if I told you that you had to be 100 percent confident in that decision before doing it? I think every parent will tell you that you can never be that confident. And yet you're talking about bringing a life into this world. Can there be any bigger decision? So a few people regret their decision or identity, does that mean you should prevent the vast majority who feel good about their decisions from making them too? Sounds a little like you're saying you know best how to handle other people's lives...
