No, really! I read my own stuff and try to figure out how to make my points more simply. Part of the problem is that I feel the need for a historiographical summary as well a citations of previous works to explain why I fell that very recent ‘buzz-words’ are inaccurate before I can present my own theories and meanings. The other part is that I am trying to fit together often apparently unconnected (like, who cares) details to make a cohesive narrative. Just cut to the last paragraph.

Also, as you were, I am concerned that people think I might be insulting them. For example, those who use ‘gender spectrum’ as far as I am concerned do not understand ‘spectrum’ or ‘gender’. Simply put a spectrum has infinite variations. Gender doesn’t. So-called experts who use ‘opposite sex’ or ‘opposite gender’ just make me cringe. What possible justification is there for thinking they are ‘opposites’? And ‘hard-wired’; what does that even mean? We are living beings and not machines.

I rely on the views, experiences and opinions of people whose living experience provides the very best information available. I may disagree with the terminology and even the resultant conclusions (such as any need for ‘passing’) but I find that there is a consistency that validates my own thoughts.
