I think that 99.99999999999% of the time, "she" and "her" will do quite well for a transgender female. For that .00000000001% of the time it won't, you could avoid personal pronouns and just use their name. Again, if you think you are going to come across a lot of ze's and zir's in your life, you'd better run out and buy your powerball tickets, cuz you got a much better chance than anyone else of winning.


An d in that small chance, there is the risk of being sued. Yeah, that is real tolerant of them.

SMFH


There is a much bigger chance of being sued if you accidentally step on someone's foot on the subway. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. You are trying to make this like trans people are a bunch of vicious litigious monsters, looking for any excuse to make your life hell. Believe me, there are a lot more cisgender people out there like that. I'd be losing sleep over them instead.


For your uninformed opinion, one of my close friends has gender dysphoria. She struggles with it daily. I just asked her opinion of this law and her response was,

"That is ridiculous. I have more issues to be concerned about than what pronoun someone uses when addressing me. If I am concerned, I just ask them to call me by my name. This approach will only make more people hate people such as me. Anyone that is that devastated by that has a lot more problems than gender confusion."

So, there you have it. This is why I was upset earlier because if DEMANDS people conform to the minuscule minority and apply that twisted logic to everyone.

I still SMFH....

EXACTLY!!!!

Can't we just agree that if you dictate how people describe you, then you should be described as an A hole.

And if no one sues over this, then it's a non-issue, isn't it? Who's making a big deal about it? A conservative writing an opinion piece.

This law is really put in place to help combat serious harassment and bullying. Anyone that isn't interested in harassing or bullying a trans person doesn't have anything to worry about. Refusing to use the correct pronoun is usually only one small part of a larger issue of transphobic actions.

I bet if your friend was being hassled constantly and bullied, they wouldn't like it.

If she was (and has) she simply fights back or ignores them. If they get physical, then the police have gotten involved using EXISTING laws already on the books that apply to everyone. Having laws like this are easy targets of abuse by vindictive people too. The old "if you are not...you have nothing to worry about" never applies in a court of law. There are many instances of laws with good intentions being abused for purposes in which they were never meant to be used.

My point is the forcing people at the point of a legal sword to address you as some made up word that is not part of any common lexicon based upon how you "feel" today (which is how it will be abused) is simply wrong and overyl complicating a very divisive topic.

If they tell you they are female, and they have a female name and they dress as a female all the time, it would be gracious to refer to them as female.


If they dress as a female all the time they get called mam. But don't talk to me about transitioning until you've had the surgery.

I refuse to use ze or frickin hir. Thats she and her. In german. So you're demanding me call you she and her. It's fricking she and her.

My brow-beaten friends still joke about "wotsits." So if I can't tell what you are, you're an it or some...thing, or "maybe they were a wotsit." Im just not polite about it, so..that's what you get, dig?

There's the assumption of hate again.

This is the dangerous part of the "progressive" movement.

Meh. I don't really care whether someone wants to be called a man or woman instead of their biological gender, but those are the two choices so pick one and stop whinging.

Mental illness does not count as a gender. No need to go inventing words for it.

This law has actually been in existence for a while now. Can you show me how many lawsuits have happened over someone refusing to call someone ze or zir or hir or any other non-traditional pronouns?

The dangerous part of the conservative movement is "you fall in line with what we want you to be".
