Yeah, it's a copy of that.

@67, I guess I was taking Charles's general history as background. This post jibes with what I take to be his larger view on things and not a list of grievances like you've provided. But really, there is a derogatory notion of 'theory' that I suspect you're buying into that is radically different from what Charles (or ta-nehisis coates http://www.theatlantic.com/features/arch…) is going after

@63, big plus, I like what you wrote.

@40, the onus is not on the theorist to to provide an engineering solution to the problem and it's stupid to expect such a thing. Maybe this is too aggressive, but your attitude is akin the hypothetical idiot demanding that Mendel come up with the double helix (ie. fuck off).

I think it's important to remember the notions in this post: http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archive…

Even if they are in your "wheelhouse" as could be argued for Macklemore et al, I think it's unfair to always require people to voice their opinion, unless you are a position of actual responsibility/authority like a president or PR person.

@27 Your comments really bespeak your ignorance on this subject. The scenarios are distorted caricatures of the trans experience and don't do much to further your points. Trans people are acutely, accurately, and painfully aware of their body and do not suffer from a mis-appraisal of it (that would be an orthogonal condition). Also, the crocodile thing is off base as well. Trans feelings are attributable in large part in utero to hormonal issues. Basically, there is a physical etiology for trans feelings, not for 'feeling like a different species' would have a radically different cause

@28 Right, so you've come around to the point where you can use your personal judgment as a grain of salt wrt professionals. Again, congrats, we all do. But when you use that personal judgment in a realm where you're totally in over your head, then it's not doing you much good.

@23 I guess I was more referring to the academic medical community, but given that any group of people with professional authority on the subject are also (qua professionals) have a livelihood to watch out for. So congratulations, you've come up with a totally vacuous way to argue against any sort of professional authority you disagree with!

@21 um, I don't think you can count the 'medical community' on your side in this instance.

@11 Sorry for the rash message. It turns out that I'm personally rather well aware of the stuff you note . I was just trying to dumb it down a bit for @5!
Aug 13 bradl commented on "The Most Transphobic Article Ever Written".
@5 I don't understand why you'd have such aggressively negative opinions on certain steps people take to make themselves feel better. Trans people are fully aware that cannot turn into biological men/women. However, the relatively simple steps they do take essentially without fail make them feel more at ease with their medical condition.
