Not going through life with an "Im Transgender" sign , so as to possibly confuse someone who might be attracted to you. Is way less troublesome , or actually harmful ... than those who don't bother using turn signals. And weave in and out of traffic with their Me First driving attitude.
But yet there it is everywhere you go driving down the road.
For all the discussion on gender dysphoria being a psychological disorder ... which I think it is settled that it is.
What about homophobia being a psychological disorder ? Which I have some experience with , and there are a few different causes of it.
Now aside from occurrences of sexual assault / harrasment ... or even a simple inappropriate gesture of a sexual nature towards someone. It would seem homophobia is simply induced by the very presence and knowledge that someone is gay/trans/other .
Speaking mostly about the male side of homophobia , since it is the more prevalent and problematic imo.
Considering there are many men who don't have a problem with it ... it would seem then that those who do and more directly to the extreme cases of it. They then in comparison have a mental disorder , that then should be looked upon as such. Instead of getting looked at and lumped in with what I think most people could agree to as good moral fiber.
For sure somethings go to far in the name of social progress ... but you have to look at the reasons for when,where,why they came from. And most certainly , the grievances the direction has sought to change , is not done moving. Which has been in motion for a long time ...
Where it goes from here , is not going to made better with weak facsimiles of the old stigmatic road blocks.
Which were a lot stronger , and still crumbled.
