Update concerning this post.

Today I got an email that said they want to publish my letter! Only, they have a couple of clarifications first... And then proceed to ask some really stupid questions. I mean....sigh...

Honestly, I think the reason this movement has so much momentum is because people are stupid.

I'm very discouraged.

There are many large, well-funded, mainstream organizations disseminated propaganda on this issue and twisting the language so no one really understands what they are actually talking about. I mean, yeah, people can be stupid, but also, people are working really hard to make sure they believe things that are not true, and don't understand things that are really obvious. We have to somehow help them see through the BS and just be clear. (For example, we know trans boys are girls, but a lot of people genuinely don't understand what that means.)

Thank you for reminding me to be patient with other people, and just calmly explain. They're not stupid, the rhetoric is intentionally confusing. If I didn't have you gals to talk things over with, I would just be angry 24/7, haha!
