I'm reminded of teaching math (I know, I know, when you are holding a hammer the world is nails). Giving the correct answer was never sufficient, the work you used to get there is also required to get full points on a problem. In fact, for a 10 point problem, the answer is probably only worth 2 or 3 points, how you get there is much more important than the answer you wind up with. What would you grade more harshly, someone who makes several mistakes that cancel each other out and arrive at the correct answer, or someone who makes a trivial mistake and gets the wrong answer but clearly understand the concepts involved? What would you do if the answer doesn't seem to follow from their work at all? It's possible that they did a bunch of work in their head, but more likely they copied off a neighbor. (which is especially obvious if you have a blue test and the correct answer to the green test).
Anyway, back to the topic at hand, if you are for gay rights and against transgender rights, I'd like you to show your work. Why is it that you think gay people should have all the same rights as everyone else? Because as far as I see it, it's because they are consenting adults doing things that don't affect anyone else. They should be able to do whatever they want. By the same exact logic, shouldn't the same thing apply to transgender people?
Even among people who are in favor of gays getting all of the same rights as straight people, I will occasionally see them still want to discriminate against trans-folk. They will talk about how it is gross and unnatural. They will even talk about LGBT rights, but that seems to be just because that is the catch-phrase, they seem to want to put transgender in its own category. It makes me wonder if they have thought about this stuff at all, or if they are just going with the flow. Have they considered the issues and concluded that gays deserve rights just like everyone else, or have they cheated off of someone and copied their answer? Show your work!
