Looking to pick your fine brains
On the UK Asexuality FB group, in a discussion around whether there should be more/no gender options on forms, I joked that I didn't understand why/how people can identify as objects.
When saying humans, regardless of flavour, cannot possibly be objects, someone made a connection between that and transphobia. Why is it so damn easy to accidentally trigger (don't call me out on PTSD references when using that word!) people in this community? We're just humans that aren't all that into sex, it's really not a big deal, so how the heck do we end up attracting so many extreme-leaning views?
Am I transphobic in my comments, or are some people in the community carrying so many chips on their shoulder that they'll draw parallels with just about anything in order to find an excuse to rage?
The trans in our community are cool folk, it's just another flavour of human as we all are. I just don't think it does them justice aligning with objects - that's just illogical.
