Oh ok I apologize. I was very drunk. I don't even remember what I said LOL. Glad we agree. This thread is one of those fearmongering threads.
First of all, why on earth would you make such a blind, silly, baseless, condescending assumption about my (or anyone else's, for that matter) gender?
I am very much straight and very much female, and I was born that way and wouldn't want to be any other way.
Your assertion that people being ignorant about the difference between crossdressing and gender reassignment is somehow "detrimental" to anyone's "acceptance" is further proof of that.
I am aware of what you said. I read it. And I responded to it. I asked you what you meant by "narrative". Who are you talking about? No one is "narrating" anything. This is a typed conversation, not an audio book or presentation, so I have no idea what you're referring to when you say "narrative".
It would seem that you are the one who is incapable of actually understanding what people are saying to you. Try really paying attention instead of grandstanding.
If a bunch of illegals were donning a dress and claiming to be transgender, when in fact they were just cross dressing for political asylum, it would indeed be detrimental to transgender acceptance.
To me it seems you support transgender people
understand that this case was based off of an individuals past treatment in a country, and at the end of the day we both don't want to see someone tortured.
I'm drunk tired too.

You know what, perhaps I am just misunderstanding you. I'd rather not continue on discussing things this way.

You're right, I shouldn't speak for others. I don't know what they are actually thinking, in my defense I was trying to give the benefit of the doubt to people.

We should collaborate and find a way to charge people for working until they get drunk tired.
