OK, first of all I didn't explain what a metaphor was. I simply said what Philips's Quote was, "a metaphor like statement." Second of all, Philip by no means said that people who have gone through or have had sexual assaults inflicted on then was insignificant or unimportant. Once again ( so hopefully you can understand), what Philip meant by, "Getting his hair cut was the closest thing to rape he remembers," is because at the Philip felt like he should have been a she and as a female getting your hair cut like a male normally would emotionally and mentally took a toll on her.Only real close people to transgenders truly understand the amount of stress, emotional and physical abuse that a transgender person endures before, during, and even after transitioning and discovering their true gender. Also, even with people that have a close relationship with said trans person, it can be a stretch.Hopefully for that last time, Philip was not undermining people’s experiences with any assault they have gone through.As for that last apart of your recent comment...Yes this is a public article and yes people can comment on them. However it’s when people like you who refuse to understand the point of the article, (which is to inform others who don't know how rough it can be being transgender) go off on the wrong meaning behind said article and spread their bigotry. Therefore you would be discouraging people from making their own opinions and or coming to their own conclusion after taking in information in the article.
What really? Yes of course Rape isn't anything to joke about and something that needs to be taking seriously.But can you not see that it was a metaphor like statement. Meaning getting the haircut was the worst thing that Philips parents did to him in regards of when he felt like a female.Then on the last few words of your replay, " what a self important dude." 1, I highly doubt that Philip contacted the Inlalnder to get this in the paper, No he was interviewed... 2, Nobody really know what its like having to for sure figure out what gender you are unless you have gone through it yourself. so unless your going to be more open minded, don't leave insensitive comment when people have their life stories publicly published!Philip I give you two thumbs up for having your personal story out in the public!
