Why can’t people

A man tweets:

The replies in this posts just proves why LGBT people don’t feel welcome in sport. Such a horrid place our country is becoming. Why can’t people accept others for who they are. Trans women are women and trans men are men

Why indeed? Why can’t people accept men who dislike the gender rules that apply to men for who they are, which is men who dislike the gender rules that apply to men?

In other words, this “for who they are” crap is not necessarily a weapon only against Team Gender Critical. Which is more unreasonable: to think that men who like to simper and pout are still men? Or to think that men who like to simper and pout are in fact women despite that whole male body thing?

I think a better way to “accept others for who they are” is to do just that, rather than to laboriously re-name and re-categorize people who fail to conform to the baroque Rules for their respective sexes.

What the man asking the question meant was actually “Why can’t people accept others for who they say they are,” but perhaps he realized the answers to that are too obvious. (Example: why can’t we accept that Trump has a hard sculpted body when he shows us a photoshop of his head on a hard sculpted body?)
