I’ve seen a number of right-wing sites, when covering a story about a transgender, use the pronoun that the transgender prefers.
I’m not going to name sites, many, many do it. There is one right now that has a story on their front page that refers to a dude as “she.”
Why do they do this? Are they agreeing that men can be women? It’s very dismaying.
Are there circumstances where I might refer to a dude as “she”?
If I’m in a social setting and I’m specifically told that someone, who is clearly a man, likes to be addressed as she, I might go along because I might not care to make a scene. And if the person was especially nice, sure. But I’m doing it despite what I truly believe.
If I had a friend that believed he was Napoleon Bonaparte I would call him Nappy as a courtesy. If I was being deposed and they asked if I believed Nappy was Napoleon Bonaparte I would have to give them a big fat no. Otherwise, I’m insane too.
If you want to address guys as she in personal settings because “you don’t want no trouble,” fine. But why are you doing it with stories on blogs where you have no skin in the game?
Have I missed a memo? Do conservatives actually believe that a man can become a woman? Or are we just being nice to the entire transgender community because “we don’t want no trouble”?
