    This seems fairly straight forward to me. Tim Blair wrote about people who claimed that they were something other than they actually are (A man claiming he is a woman; a white woman claiming she was black; white Australians claiming to be aboriginal; a healthy woman claiming she has cancer).

    That is just physical and immutable fact. That is what the newly coined term “identify” means – I claim I am something that I am not. A strange thing to get so outraged over.

    Reading you article, it seems that you discriminate between those making these manufactured claims (“identifications”) as either “scammers” (someone who claims they are sick and who isn’t) and

    Well, I would take a different view to you on that score. Jenner has done extremely well financially out of his claims. Rachel Dolezal did as well, as do so many Australians “identifying” as aboriginal (but not identifiable as aboriginal for sure).

    Tim Blair hit the nail on the head.

    Tara,

    As a disabled guy, I gotta laugh whenever I read of faux outrage and platitudes written by a ‘journalist’ like you. Seriously Tara, fuck off and take your piety somewhere else. We of the minority groups are doing just fine thank you very much and believe it or not, so is Bruce. Yea, the guy is making a Motza on his new found fame and good on him, even if he is confused about his identity. Lord knows, Some days I wake up and wonder who the heck is that in the mirror, lol.

    Hmm, so now apparently people are abhorrent if they decide that we shouldn’t genuflect to people who say that a man, who says he identifies as a woman (but who isn’t actually a woman), but who is – in reality – a…umm….a “man” is…well, a man”- regardless of either his or her genetic reality, their physical “bits”, or their operative status – all of which are relevant.

    What has the world – and it’s prissy little petals – come to?

    Gender is not a social construct. Gender is a fact. You can personally “identify” as a unicorn, for all I care – that does not make you a unicorn.

    I personally don’t care about this “his”and “hers” toilet fiasco. Every, single private residence already has unisex toilets.

    There are much more important issues in this fight.
