Okay, I know I said I wasn’t going to talk about it further, and maybe we should thread split at this point! But I absolutely do not know where you get the gall go assume that your experience is anywhere close to mine, or how you can say that you ‘support’ me when you don’t seem to even have a grasp on what you are supporting. I have been living as publicaly trans for years in a city of millions of people. I’ve dealt with a lot of bullshit. I’ve had this conversation more than a few times! I have irreversibly changed the very neurochemicals in my brain, and have irreversibly given up the ability to have biological children. You do not have the experience I have on the issue, because I am the issue. Does that make sense?
Words are so important, they convey meaning. If you do not convey what you mean accurately, or directly, or at all, you can’t assume that people will assume your intentions are good. I did not miss your larger point. You need to analyze your position and reason out why the things you are saying are not being taken well.
That is how people reach consensus. Not by assuming that you and I have the same experience, but by realizing that our experiences are different. And that has that has very real value. You and i do not share experience, but we share the ability and desire to understand, correct? I want you both to understand what I’m saying about point of view, and in the process, maybe come to a better understanding of all of our points of view.
