As if the person who is complaining about Facebook was the first to notice we live in a binary world?

In a perfect world we could choose say purple with pink polka dots as our gender or sex (since the term is usually used interchangably by most people.).

Tyranny of the majority will rear its ugly head on these kind of issues, and then dare you to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are not one or the other ( Hint, saying that you identify as something else isn't going to cut it, you could say you identify as a petunia for all the good that does.).

There are for now and the foreseeable future only going to be two choices that everyone can or will recognise. Deal with it, I have.

Re: Seacoast. I'll just note that in my post on this, I did mention that they were working on plans to remain open as an all-volunteer org--so we had it right on Bilerico all along. (The new statement from the ED, "We are very hopeful we will not have to close at all," doesn't exactly sound definite. I wish them luck, however. Their services are much needed!

As the person who was complaining about Facebook, I feel obliged to point out that the audience that article was written for probably has not noticed that we live in a binary world to the same degree that the Bilerico readership undoubtedly has. I also do not see a lot of point to sitting there and let the, as you say, "tyranny of the majority" call me something I am not.
