spoilerGENDER IDEOLOGY CONFLATES THE RIGHT NOT TO SUFFER DISCRIMINATION ON GROUNDS OF GENDER REASSIGNMENT WITH A RIGHT TO BE TREATED AS THE OPPOSITE SEX
( zephyrean )
TBH that "right" is bullshit and it shouldn't exist at all either way. Why is this specific fetish elevated above others?
A trans is a thoroughly unpleasant individual, an offensive gross pervert. Society should agree on what constitutes "unpersoning" and grant the right to not be unpersoned to absolutely everyone who isn't a criminal. Let's say "equal prices for goods and services offered to the public". (There are a lot of free variables. What's a crime? What must be "offered to the public" and what can be a private deal? How often can you change the terms?)
For example, a person walking into a store to buy food should be allowed to buy food; if a community wouldn't sell someone food, the person can't live in that community: they should either criminalize the person's offensive behavior outright to be intellectually honest or pass a law that mandates equal access. The same goes for housing.
Consider "smelling bad". Is that offensive? Can you throw a stinker in jail? Can you demand that he leaves a store? Can you reject his job application? If yes, how is he different from a trans who engages in his fetish in public?
Can you reject the job application of someone who behaves normally in public but writes "other races are subhuman" online? If yes, how is he different from a person who behaves normally in public but has a gender identity?
