“You’re doing your job, but you’re not enthusiastic, and you’re clearly not happy.” A few weeks ago, I was given some feedback at work. I suspect the intent was to ‘motivate’ me to do better. But honestly, part of me is taking it as a compliment.
Language is so imprecise. Does this mean:
"I don't mind if a trans woman is in the bathroom. I'll use it anyway."
"I won't use a bathroom for its intended purpose if a trans woman is in the bathroom."
It's hard to understand the future and how to survive if one doesn't know the past and how we overcame. And I fear, for many, much is ancient history, best to be forgotten and ignored.
Stonewall, the AIDS epidemic, depathologization. That all happened.
Know your history.
