Transgender and non-binary human beings have always existed and always will. A disagreement with this fact is a threat of annihilation and should be treated as such. Do not be polite with those who are so cavalier about eliminationist dogma.

I can't help pushing, or bumping into, big red buttons.
Could explain my marital status.
