LogGrad98,I fully acknowledge the below points bring made. I just disagree with the assessment in this singular instance and stand by my opinion that it can be interpreted different ways. It is not the same as the rain, in that the is still subjectivity as to the point. I took exception to the implication that anyone who found this particular joke funny is automatically transphobic. I probably overreacted as I have been in discussion about similar topics with my daughter, who came out in high school, and her friends recently. I just feel that often people, both religious (to your other post) and liberals (for lack of a better all-encompassing term) tend to make statements of "fact" intending entirely to manipulate and squash the discussion rather than just admitting it's their opinion. I apologize to you @One Brow if I came across hostile, that was not my intent. I'll just bow out.
My own child (whom I formerly considered my daughter) recently came out to us as a maverick, which is a specific gender that is neither male nor female. So, I might also be a little sensitized here. I'll try to keep that in mind in the future, as well. My respect for you has in no way been diminished (I could say the same words about MeloTheJazzKiller, but with a completely different meaning).
