Asking If A Transgender Person Had Surgery Or Just Enjoys Crossdressing Is A ‘Microaggression’ Now

A “nonbinary Ph.D. candidate” using the pseudonym Francis Walker discovered this new, menacing microaggression and added it to the world’s perpetually growing stockpile by way of a 1,245-word essay at Inside Higher Ed.

    Why pay attention to any of them at all? Anyone consider that when these people raise this as an issue it’s to award themselves special privileges. Maybe this person’s PhD thesis is shit and this is the only way they think they can get a pass. Who cares?

      PhD – Piled higher and Deeper would describe his/her/its thesis

    Asking If A Transgender Person Had Surgery…….
    Just how the hell does THAT come up in a conversation???

    • Justin St.Denis

      I imagine that the issue might come up just prior to the conversation regarding “d’ya wanna fuck?” Indeed, it might curtail the need for the latter question altogether.

    So can you still call them mentally ill perverts?

      Better ask your constitutional lawyer first.

      • A Hamilton Guy

        I don’t care what the stupid lawyer thinks

      I do. So do virtually all our friends, most of whom are highly educated, successful and heterosexual. We even count three psychiatrists and a couple of psychologists among our friends. There is no dissent, actually. Trans people are psychiatrically disordered, but so is mainstream society! This explains so much when you pause to consider it…

    So then is asking if someone had any ‘work’ done, or if a woman is pregnant, or if someone’s gained/lost weight etc, etc.
    Transgenders appear to be too thin skinned and mentally unstable to live in any society, least of all our tolerant one.

      Perhaps Canada’s new take on euthanasia can come in handy here……

    • terrence22

      “thin skinned and mentally unstable” is a reflection of their serious mental-emotional problems.

      They all should be REQUIRED to have the operation, and over 90% of them will commit suicide within five years.

    With all the danger around misgendering and, God forbid, using a non-prefered pronoun, thus “erasing their existence and denying their humanity” and now this new nonsense, maybe the safest course of action would be to limit your interactions with the minuscule trans community to a strict minimum or would that be a microagression too?

    I am so f***ing sick of this bull****. Wear what you want, Frank can call himself Francine I don’t give a flying f***. But don’t make your mental illness compulsory for me to affirm.

      If only!

    Since I didn’t think you would appreciate the band Twisted Sister here is a musical interlude from 1958.

    Honestly why would any normal person ask them anything? In fact why speak to them or have anything to do with them?
