I appreciate you taking such an interest in my life.

I sure hope that the two of us can put our heads together and figure out just exactly what the hell I am.

On a serious note, no, I do not reject the definition of woman as “adult human female.” I am an adult human female.

I invite you to consider that you do not speak with the authority of someone versed in bio-neurology, nor gender science, nor psychology. You speak with the authority of an angry transphobe who has access to the internet.

I invite you to consider that just because you don’t understand what causes red hair, it doesn’t give you license to call the redhaired girl “ginger” and point and laugh at her. There are many things you don’t understand, Liz. Spouting off about them without understanding them is not very nice.

Homophobes don’t “fear” gay folk — they HATE gay folk. That’s why, when homophobes attack or kill a gay person, it is not called a “fear crime” — it is called a hate crime.

I fully believe you that you do not “fear” women like me. You HATE women like me (and this is fully in evidence in the bile that you pour into your response. You MEAN to cause me distress. I’m sorry to have disappointed you in that regard).

Writing something hateful and discriminatory and then adding, “that’s not hateful and discriminatory” is the argument of a 6-year old. (“Sally, stop calling your sister a boogerhead, that’s mean!” followed by “I wasn’t being mean…”) I am not impressed.
