Transgender Hate

I just don’t get why trans people are so hated, why they are so threatening. It’s right up there in why are gays hated so much. I see the biblical reasons as post-hoc. There are lots of things the bible forbids. I don’t see fundamentalists giving up bacon anytime soon. Or more to the point, the prohibition about milk-and-meat together is stronger than the ones about pork (yeah, my parents insisted I read the bible, even if I didn’t believe) and everybody is still eating cheeseburgers1.

But what is about trans people? Does it threaten your manhood? Are your testicles trying to crawl back up into your abdomen?

Go read Crossing: A Memoir Deirdre N. McCloskey (Author). I’ve blogged about this book before. It is a life-changing book.
