Well thank you very much! You have no idea how much I appreciate your kind words. :)
Transphobic? I didn’t add a “phobic” comment to anything, unless it was a picture of spiders or something. Then hell yes I added a phobia-centered comment to it.
If you’re referring to the GIFset of the transexual/gender (I honestly can’t remember the difference) person, yes, I added a comment to it, but there was no fear or hatred involved.
It was a simple statement of facts. Human chromosomes do not change just because someone alters their appearance. You are free to call yourself whatever you’d like, but the fact remains that you are biologically what you were born as.
I personally don’t care if you get surgically altered and change your appearance and name. That is perfectly fine with me, and if you go from being Larry to Lauren, I’ll call you Lauren. Does that mean you are indeed a woman biologically? No, because that’s not scientifically possible.
If science comes up with a way to alter the chromosomes, DNA, and give working reproductive organs, then we’ll talk, because that XX or XY chromosome defines a person’s gender, and that’s that. But cosmetic alterations do not suffice in changing someone’s gender.
Is there anything “phobic” or “hateful” about my response? Hell no. I’ve known some absolutely lovely people who felt they were born as the wrong gender. I’ve never had an issue with anyone’s sexuality or what they want to refer to themselves as. My only issue comes from people refusing to acknowledge scientific facts in favor of their feelings.
Logic and rational thought triumph over feelings every time.
