Quote-unquote

andysBad: Going to a trans woman’s blog full of trans stuff and stunning everyone with the epic revelation that she’s “male”.

Worse: Scare-quoting a trans woman’s name.

Funny: Scare-quoting a trans woman’s name when her real name is actually Lauren.

    I always get a kick out of asshats like this who go to blogs and accuse bloggers of “bad journalism”. It reminds me of reading letters to the editor in newspapers where the writer complains about bias in opinion columns.

    Well, “Zinnia”, if that IS your real name … this was really funny.

    You should never scare-quote a Lauren. Laurens will mess you up.

    TW identifier so that everyone who equates me to a black plague knows who I am: Eucliwood. That’s me. The inferior Eucliwood Eu. Also… *cannot think of anymore name alternatives*

    Wow holy shit, and that looks like a comment on freethought blogs… random troll? Someone who comments here regularly? Didn’t this hurt you? I was expecting a more thorough blog post on how totally hurtful it was rather than just mocking it.

    I, who was born a long time ago in a dictatorship, read that comment and instantly pictured the greasy and morose policeman doing an interrogation, seating in a desk reading the thick file in a nasal voice: “So it says here in the file that you… – he lifts his eyes from the file and kind of spits the name through contorted lips, what can be read as scare quotes – Zinnia… have been conspiring against the state…”
