Re: “Classical Punk

I cannot believe that the person who wrote the article went about writing their piece with such little regard for others! Dear Michael Bowen, please stretch your myopic, rigid thinking just a tiny bit and imagine yourself as a transgendered person. You might have spent years of your life struggling with your own identity, then having those you are close to accept it if they indeed accepted it, changing your name to better reflect who you truly are and just trying to live your life as the person you truly are, despite what your biological gender might be. How nice would it be to have everyone understand you and accept you for who you are, accept who you really are. But in this world that is afraid to step out of the bounds termed "the norm" that won´t happen, will it? You will often face rejection, disrespect and scorn when you tell them you are a transgendered person, and ask them to please refer to you using at the very least pronouns appropriate for the gender you identify with. Out of sheer respect for you if nothing else.


I am inclined to believe that you, the author, is either transphobic or just plain rude and disrespectful. I know that Johnnie already corrected you when you made the mistake of referring to him as a woman, in person. Are you really that forgetful? Or was that a conscious decision on your part, making a "mistake" to steer clear of the transgendered issue because you have no respect for people? Until you issue some kind of an apology to those whom you´ve hurt with your ignorant word choice I will think of you as having done the latter.
