“I am what I am, and that’s all that I am.” – Popeye
Asking who, or what, we “identify” as can be a much different question than asking who, or what, we “are.”
Each of us can “identify” as whatever, or whoever, we want, I guess. Who is anybody to tell me what, or who, I think I am?
It really depends on how you ask the question.
For example, if you really want to get past this whole bathroom and gender question, all you have to do is label the restrooms “Penis” and “No Penis.” Problem solved.
As far as racial determination goes, we really shouldn’t care, right?
If you’re asking about race there’s going to be some level of discrimination, one way or the other, following shortly, right?
Unless you’re going to order me to have a DNA test (and this may be coming soon), who could debate my choice of identity without being viewed as unaccepting or insensitive?
It’s ironic though that the only ones that would have an issue with this would be those with a liberal persuasion. This is because it is our liberal friends who are in the business of social engineering, constantly trying to “level the playing” field, in their view. And how can you do that if anybody can identify as anything?
If people choose to identify themselves as someone they really aren’t, then the whole concept of social engineering falls apart, and I think that’s a good thing.
