Fine, maybe I'll stop with the name calling. Sad

Quite so. Smile

I encourage you to not to. That's what debate's all about. Big Grin

If I didn't already make it clear, I'm not interested in doing that. My personal hurdles are irrelevant as I do not advocate for special protection/special treatment.

No, I'm not. You're reading something that isn't there.

(19-06-2017 12:09 PM)Emma Wrote:  It sure sounds like you don't recognize that bias exists and makes life more difficult for some than others.
To you, maybe. I did not say that, imply that, or use any intonation that would lead to that conclusion.

This is a flat out lie. Find the quote where I said that and I will change, my signature to that.

Equality and equity are opposing forces. In order to have equity you must discriminate. Equity is a heaping pile of shit.

Now an employer has to decide if it's going to be too much risk or too much trouble to have a trans person working there- that is, if they aren't immediately disgusted by my mere existence.

On average, you're right. You would be more likely to face discrimination for that reason. And I would use my free-speech to change people's minds about discriminating based on such things.

Improve your skill set. Move into a more promising industry. Build a reputation.

That kind of tenacity is all it takes. Thumbsup

And the King/Queen thing was a joke at your expense. If you search for my username and "Hillbilly" you are sure to find dozens of jokes at my expense. It's just jokes.

If you're interested PM me and I'll set it up and post it on TTA. I think we could come to a better understanding with an actual conversation. Anyhow, the offer is out there.

I'll keep it in mind, but I'm a better writer than speaker and would struggle to communicate effectively by voice so I'm unlikely to take you up on that offer. Talking is not my strong-suit.

I'm disappointed, but unsurprised. However, if you change your mind, I'm still willing.
