Each is entitled to his/her/their opinion and to express such opinions in a respectful manner. Indeed, the diversity of opinions facilitates learning and understanding. When one feels strongly about one topic or another, it can be difficult to express one’s views in a manner that does not come across as judgmental and condescending. I do not go out fully en femme and do not desire to do so, therefore, I have no personal stake in this discussion. Nevertheless, I feel this post crosses the lines of being judgmental and condescending. I feel Roberta’s pain and sincerely hope she does not leave CDH or otherwise self-censor comments.
Finally, I have a tip of my own. If a topic is going to bring you annoyance, don’t read it.
