A Note to the Ignorant

So, you insist that trans men aren’t really men and trans women aren’t really women and you insist that this assertion doesn’t make you a bigot.  Gosh, I’m so sorry that you don’t like the label “bigot” being applied to you.  That must really hurt your feelings.  No one likes to be called something that misrepresents who they are, right?

So, how about this instead: you are a ignorant hypocrite who wallows in your privilege to mischaracterize others according to the dictates of your prejudice while viewing critiques of your prejudiced behavior as being unfair misrepresentations of who you are.  Hey, I see what you mean.  That is so much more accurate than calling you a bigot.  I stand corrected.  Thank you.
