sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

I shared this on the other site, and figured I should share it here too.

Scott Alexander is most definitely not on board with a lot of the social justice movement and is often harshly critical of it, but I love him anyway. This particular post is an argument for trans acceptance and why defining gender according to self-identification is so important.

While I'm aware that I'm a cis guy saying this (and please feel free to tell me what you don't like about the article or what I might be missing), I feel like this would be a really good thing to link to people who get hung up on "but gender just means these things", if there's someone like that you want to get across to, but they're probably not going to take you seriously if you link something that's steeped in social justice rhetoric.
