This just in: Apparently, wondering aloud on our site about gender identity, expressing thoughts about our wishes that gender did not exist in it’s current, restraining form, and expounding on those feelings is not allowed… because we do not identify as trans.
This also just in: Instead of asking us to continue that dialogue, instead of saying, ‘Hey guys, when you said this thing, it made me feel shitty because of this, this and this,’ most people seem content to say, ‘Oh, those two who have devoted the past two years to trying to work for human equality? Turns out they are fucking idiots. Fuck them.’
When we say something that might offend some of you, and we are approached directly with a dialogue about those feelings, we get to learn, we get the space to think more on these issues, and we get to understand even more about the experience of others. When we get lambasted as though we are not human beings… it does absolutely nothing productive.
You can be disappointed in us - but I am going to return the favor and say that I am also pretty disappointed in you.
