We can't have kids raised by robots because some parents are abusive, we can't remove all knives from society because some people kill with them

So basically, your personal willingness to accommodate trans-ideology stops at transgender?
OK, then at Google, you would be labeled a hateful bigot just like you like to label those of us who don't try to stop you from being what you are but maybe don't want our children to share the locker room with kids who aren't a biological gender match to them.
See at Google, they do have an employee who is a yellow-winged dragonkin and an ornate, expansive building all at the same time, a dual persona or something, and that person gave a lecture on how you should address and interact with both of them because they are all there.
So what do you do? Since you've indicated now that that person does not exist as such, you've outed yourself as a bigot?
I've read through this whole thread and I was most interested reading your back and forth with the above person, who was engaging with you up until this post.
I was actually really looking forward to seeing the reply to this because I think you've hit upon a really interesting point here (in spite of the rather confrontational tone of your reply there) and I was curious what their response would be.
Unfortunately, it would seem the other poster has opted to side-step answering this post. They are still in the thread, they posted a couple of pages after you did. It's a shame because it was an interesting exchange.
I think if you take out the emotional responses to these things and look at it from the point of view of consistency of thinking/belief, self-justification, personal values, societal values etc then there's a very interesting discussion to be had.

Wait.. I need to understand this...
I'm not really right or left. I'm a person and an individual. Is why I tend to defend both sides of the aisle where I feel they are in the right, and spit on both when they are both wrong.
