This is exactly the perspective I’ve tried to explain to people , put into words. People wonder why LGBT folks (and many other minority groups), are so angry and hypersensitive all the time. You would be too if you had to train people to call you a new name/gender, watch your back in public spaces/restrooms, put up with offensive slurs, ignorant questions, negative social media content, unemployment, harassment/assault ETC. WE CAN NEVER WIN. WE ARE PEOPLE JUST TRYING TO LIVE OUR LIVES LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. Do not put us in a box and dismiss our existence because you simply are ignorant. Being educated is important.
