: bugbrennan: Oh, right, for saying trans women are women, but they are...

bugbrennan:

I have never misgendered anyone. I use whatever pronouns people prefer.

Do you think threatening to kill someone is ever an appropriate response?

nothingaboutus-withoutus:

bugbrennan:

Nope. Thanks for that.

I find your blog really difficult to see. People make assumptions. http://www.facebook.com/iambugbrennan/posts/215853218526634

We are all always learning.

Sorry for the wrong pronoun. What is your pronoun?

nothingaboutus-withoutus:

bugbrennan:

Um, no, dear. That’s what happens when I speak to a young adult who has some learning ahead of him.

Okay?  Your point? Do you see me threatening to kill you?

However, maybe you might consider that people did so because instead of correcting yourself and apologizing, you refused to stop misgendering them.  You drew up old information, using their old name and their assigned gender and the body parts they were born with against them.

Did you ever think that misgendering people repetitively is not an appropriate response?

I mean, you can draw attention away from yourself as much as you want, but it doesn’t make you any less culpable.

Bullshit.  I’ve seen you do so.  

I fail to see why you can’t accept people as they say they are… as they are.  Trans women deal with many of the same realities as cis women.  They tend to be paid less on average, and many are victims of rape.   I’m looking through the male privilege checklist, and they have none of the privileges that come from being male.  This makes sense, because they aren’t male.
