We insist on good things, and more of them

This kind of thing.

SNP Students puts out a Statement (or Declaration or Affirmation or Prose Poem) on Twitter that is full of…no one can tell what.

Trans rights are human rights.

Ok, fine, but what are we talking about? What are trans rights exactly?

We believe that regardless of someone’s sexuality or gender identity they should be respected.

Ok, fine, but what are we talking about? “Respected” how? Not bullied or persecuted? Well, agreed, of course. Not disagreed with? That’s not “respect” and it’s not a “right.”

SNP Students will stand up for the rights of the trans community, we will continue to push for trans rights to be expanded and we will not hesitate to call out transphobia wherever we see it.

Ok, fine, but what are we talking about? Again, what rights exactly? And if they are expanded, what will those rights be? And what exactly is “transphobia”? Is it hatred and bullying? Or is it disagreeing?

It makes a difference.
