Response to How Transphobic Are You?:
I have a problem with the term “transphobic”. It isn’t a phobia. If you aren’t sympathetic to trans people there isn’t something mentally wrong with you. Same with “homophobia”. Sometimes that is true when it is true, but mostly it is a judgement unrelated to fear. Call it what it is. And let’s also clarify this point, having an opinion in opposition to the acceptance of alternative lifestyles is not ignorance. People have right to be opposed to something outside of what is acceptable in their culture without being seen as somehow backwards. Tolerance is a two way street.
