Excellent comment. I’ve made a similar comment previously. Problem is that there is a rigidity of thinking by members, management and moderators on this site.
We live, whether we like it or not, in a binary society. Things are either left or right, up or down, good or evil, male or female. The species has not fully evolved yet.
<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> As a transgendered person you may have experienced, depending on how well you pass, the confusion and discomfort of others who encounter you. If you are comfortable in your own skin, then their discomfort can be a source of entertainment.
<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> Unfortunately even on an impersonal site like this, the discomfort of others bleeds through. Witness their unwillingness to address the gender problem and the specious arguments that are presented by owner, staff and members.
<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> I see no problem in accommodating the current gender paradigm, the problem is the default assumptions of “son of” or “daughter of” or precluding a transwoman from listing her YDNA.
<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> All of his can be rectified, quite easily, by the owner with a slight modfication to the coding.
That is if they are of a mind to do so, provided that they are not transphobic or hiding behind some religious ideation. In other words they too are comfortable in their own skin.
