"Making fun of a person's gender or sexual identity can be extremely harmful"

Jesuit of the day. Self-inflicted harm, if anything. Too bad: You aren't forced to shoot your own foot.

No-one even *knows* the *person* writing behind the nick. Even less their gender or sexual identity. Therefore it *must not matter* when you write replies to them.

These assholes themselves then whine that people "don't respect" their randomly self-assigned "gender", basically trying to force other people to conform their idiotic and neurotic whims.

*That* deserves as much derision as you can imagine.

Same as "being offended": So what? Offence is always *taken*, i.e. a personal decision, not a fact.

"Why did you decide to take offence, tell us?" ... and you never get a reply to that.
