Let’s talk about sex, baby

I posted the other day about supposed trans-species people, but I think my point got a bit lost.

  • Transgender people are real.
  • Werewolves, elves and dragons aren’t.

There’s no such thing as a dragon spectrum, where some people are a little bit dragon and others quite a lot.

There’s no chromosome that makes you an elf.

No hormone that’ll make you a werewolf.

Whereas transgender people are part of the infinite variety of human brains and bodies.

Think of it like making soup: a slight change in the recipe, in the quality of the ingredients, in the way you cook, in the amount of seasoning you add or the time you cook can have a big effect on the end result.

What’s true for minestrone is equally true for human beings. Our biological soup has room for all kinds of variations.
