Oh, and also, people need to chill on assumptions they make because someone asked a question, in reference to the "oh, I'm young so I must be naive". Ugh. Stop.

For me, I mossssssstly side with Shapiro on the topic where because I don't address a trans person how they prefer that I'm a horrible person invading on their identity. His interaction with the trans guy in the interview was a bit rude, coming across saying "what are your genetics?". I mean you had to know that that was kind of a hot button thing to say so he was warranted a little bit of criticism for it, but not a threat.
I've had an instance with a friend's band we played with a while back where I wanted to go talk to the bass player about a pedal that I saw on his/her pedalboard after a gig, and I had zero clue how the hell to address this dude. He was obviously a guy, but was wearing a bralet kind of top.
I don't really even know how I'd react to him wanting to correct me if I called him a guy instead of a girl to his face. I mean shit, I'll call you whatever you want, but like he said, if you wanna join the boy scouts and you're not a boy, then there's a problem.

You recognize that these are two different scenarios though, right? Not knowing how someone wants to be addressed and fearing that you will get it wrong is a real concern but very different than purposefully calling someone something that you know they will find offensive.

In the first scenario, there shouldn't be a problem if the person you are addressing handles it with compassion and empathy. I actually had this happen where someone I hadn't seen in a while was in the process of transitioning from male to female. She was out amongst friends as transgender but I did not know since I'd moved out of state, I hadn't seen the group in a long time, and it was early on so she still looked like the person I knew as male minus long hair. When she realized I did not know, she sat down next to me and privately told me her story. Didn't judge or disparage me for not knowing.

They work fine all over Europe. They've existed there for decades and they are not thought twice about. I've used plenty and it's :whocares: Every urinal and every toilet is in a little room with floor to ceiling walls and door, and sinks are in a large common room. NBD at all.


AT work we use the women's bathroom for #2s. We call it "The Palace".
Cuz we only have 1 woman working here and we're 6 guys.
I'm sure she really appreciates that. :lol:

I don't understand it, mainly because I've never had a conversation with a transgender person.

Make all bathrooms unisex, fuck it. :aintcare:

I like that idea if they're built like that. Not a fucking stall with a door that leaves a big gap, not a stall where the door doesn't lock, and not a stall that's easily accessible for some piece of shit asshole spying on some poor girl. It happens a lot more than you think. Until then you gotta keep 'em separated (hey!)
There was an operator in the 90s who was dressing like a girl and taking pictures out here. got arrested. People are slimy fucks. :dislike: :dislike:

Oh for sure. That's why I pointed out how they're configured in Europe. Floor to ceiling walls and doors is the only way to do it. No mere stalls with huge gaps top and bottom. :disgust:

Yeah, then Trump replied with the offer to take an IQ test to challenge him.

While I wish Tillerson had outright said "yeah I fucking said it" instead of his non-denial sidestep when asked if he did call Trump a "fucking moron", that's an impossible ask. Still, :bravo:, because based on his statement, I bet he fucking said it and has no regrets about it.

I've had an instance with a friend's band we played with a while back where I wanted to go talk to the bass player about a pedal that I saw on his/her pedalboard after a gig, and I had zero clue how the hell to address this dude. He was obviously a guy, but was wearing a bralet kind of top.
“Hey, what kind of pedal is that?” :iono:

Followed up with “hi, I’m Steve”. You’d probably get a name back and be fine.
