She's done with me! MFI did her final paper about my workplace and I couldn't even attend her presentation because of said workplace.
Well, her mind has opened ten-fold and I love her for it. Any discussion/hope for programming for the trans community must, if it's done right, include an in-depth discussion about sexism within the queer community and maybe that's one reason trannys don't feel like being participants in areas where the T in GLBT is placed last.
I offer her this quote by a incredibly insightful conservative journalist, Linda Kimball:
With respect to homosexuals and all "emerging deviant orientations," fairness can only be achieved by depriving 98% of the population of their fixed sex: male and female.
While Kimball's article goal was to say that the only way to make queer sexualities normal was to make heterosexuality deviant, I would, surprisingly I know, agree with her - though not for the reasons she holds. I agree because I believe we must question what is considered "normal". I cannot reason that simple majority implies dominance.
We must fight the foundational ideas we hold as truth. Keep fighting the privilege we carry, MFI!
