Gender-Neutral Dating


“Trans*” I am reliably informed, is the new, more inclusive way of referring in writing to the phenomenon of transsexualism,
or as the ever-helpful FAQ at “Ask a Trans Woman” explains: “Trans, sans asterisk, has a tendency to mean gender-binary folk (trans men and trans women, often by the DSM-IV, GID definition of the words.) Trans* is more inclusive.” It is getting difficult to keep up. | National Review Online

I'll stick with my old guideline: If I can't tell, I don't care.

MY "old guideline": they're mentally ill.

My continuous guideline: They better stay away from me. I will not waste one second of my time with retarded childish silliness.

Trans + whatever = "You must not only tolerate me and my perversion, but you must enable and celebrate it. Hater."
