Response 3 (and last) to The Doll Parts

Language is NOT meant to be exclusionary. Language is a system of communication, which includes differentiation and classification.

Exclusion is not classification.

Exclusion is oppression.

Whenever someone speaks (or writes), it's important to understand their motive and their purpose.

In your case, it is obvious that you're seeking to bolster an obsolete schema for the sake of ideology. And your ideology is one fueled by bigotry.

This is not about feelings. This is about human rights, about the rights of individuals to function in society, lead productive lives and seek happiness and dignity.

You'd seek to preclude a portion of humankind from attaining these. Shame on you for that.
