i agree completely.
I do too. I was slow to come to this position, but I have had certain friends in my life for the past five years or so who have educated me. After all, who am I to tell them their personal experience is wrong? What business is it of mine? And these are good people who treat others well. By every yardstick that is important to me, they are the people who should be considered "normal". They are not sick or perverted.
And it is vulgar and reductive to say of them, "I don't care who they fuck." A person's gender identity is a lot more than a rutting behavior.
Huh? That was in response to an accusation that I think lesbians/gay men/bisexuals are aberrations.
I don't care about people's sexuality. Is sexuality not fucking now? Or about who you'd like to fuck?
I'd be inclined to 'reduce' my own sexuality to fucking. But I can be a bit vulgar, so feel free to use your own preferred term.
Gender is something different altogether. Nothing to do with fucking. And I haven't once given any indication that I think transgender people are sick or perverted. I mean some of them probably are. Just as some non-transgender people are. But by virtue of it? No. I simply haven't.
