Why Does Political Correctness Mean the Transgender Person Is Always Right?
mynorthwest ^ | 7/17/14 | Dori Monson

Posted on 07/19/2014 1:44:51 PM PDT by nickcarraway

I saw a story on KIRO TV about a person on Capitol Hill named Dylan Paul. Dylan Paul is 24 years old and transgender. Dylan was a man and now has breasts. But she still looks very much like a man if you watch the piece.

The story reports on what happened when Dylan was working at Pagliacci up on Capitol Hill. She says that a customer mis-gendered her.

According to Dylan, she was working at the salad station there and the customer said, 'Thanks man.' And she said, 'Well I'm not a man, I'm a ma'am.'

"When he heard that he laughed in my face and then made his way out of the store," Dylan tells KIRO TV.

Dylan was really upset that this customer laughed in her face and left the store. She said that she talked to her manager at Pagliacci, and her coworkers, and they didn't take her side in the situation. It sounds like she wanted them to not serve this customer again, wanted to ban him because he said 'Thanks man,' and laughed when she said, 'ma'am.'

So Dylan quit her job at Pagliacci Pizza. She's still very upset about this, so she went to the Transgender Justice League and Elaine Wiley -- who also used to be a man, said they want to take up Dylan's cause, and they recommended to the Pagliacci owner that they have transgender sensitivity training.

Now, you understand the situation that the owner of Pagliacci Pizza is in. He's got a place on Broadway, on Capitol Hill. I have no idea if he really believes that they need to have transgender sensitivity programming, but they're going to now.

The LGBT will shut his place down if he doesn't just cave in to any demand they make because a customer said to a woman who looks like a guy, 'Thanks man.' That's the source of all of this.

The owner of Pagliacci is saying all the things that the transgender community wants to hear right now. "This incident has shown us that we need to spend more time talking to all our employees about Trans issues and doing a better job of kind of educating our employees and our managers," Matt Galvin told KIRO.

Do you? Do you really have to do a better job of training your employees because they didn't take Dylan's side in this?

Maybe your employees thought Dylan was being ridiculous when a customer said, 'Thanks man,' and Dylan said, 'It's ma'am,' and the customer laughed. Why do we always assume that the transgender person is in the right in something like this?

Maybe the other Pagliacci employees were right in saying she's being a drama queen about this. Maybe the customer was being just a normal human being and thinking I don't know why that guy said, 'It's ma'am.'

But the fact that because of political correctness we are all forced to assume that one side is right in a dispute like this, it's just somebody that is looking to be a victim here. That's what it sounds like to me.

So Pagliacci is going to close down, lose a day's worth of business for the sensitivity training. And the owner has got to do it or else they'll be after him.

Everybody has to be a victim. It's the American way.

Dylan Paul was and is and always will be a man with the delusions that he is something else and somehow he wants others to pretend along with him.

I’ve met 2 transgendered people in my life. Both came from very normal and supportive homes. However, both were totally messed up straight out of the womb.

Transgendered people have a mental illness.

The illness should be treated, not coddled.

The gay org needs to tell him to stop being a whiny baby.

Btw, you’re not really a woman since you don’t have pms and a period. Some guy wanting those is batcrap nuts!

Yes. Also, the black accusing you of racism is always right too. The woman accusing you of harassment is right.

I worked at a company where any professional white who was not in management could be disciplined or fired based on a single report from any black on the floor. Didn’t work the same way with management, though. We always tried to have witnesses when we had to talk to people on the floor.

Let's start with using the correct gender here. He is still a man and will remain so, regardless of how he mutilates his body. So the proper pronoun is "he."

Its a He, not a She. Having enlarged breast and a mutilated body does not make you a woman. A woman is a beautiful thing crafted by nature and Nature’s God. A woman is NOT something that can be recreated by the hand of man.

Because, for some reason, people whose mental illness manifests as a sexual deviancy get a free pass.

I've been trying to figure out why. I have some hypotheses, but I really don't know. Treating them as if they are normal is advancing some political agenda--but how it is supposed to do that is unclear.

The UK had a bizarre case where the trans man kept scheduling an OBGYN appointment, and the doctor was supposedly discriminatory for refusing it, citing the lack of female plumbing.

True. Teddy K. was not much of a man, but having breasts didn't make him female.

Political correctness is tool used to cripple close to 85 percent of the population in America. Political Correctness is aso used to push the race card; to stymie free speech; to blur the line between good and bad; making any and all judgemental expression verboten. Political Correctness is much like an inoperable cancer....however, unlike cancer, with P.C. I have a choice......

This is my neighborhood, I know it very well, specially Broadway and Paggliacci’s . If you have a business or work there you don’t need any re-education camps, they’ll come to or you can just observe them outside your window, day or night, specially night! The manager most likely hired him/her or it just because it was transgender. It has no reason to complain.

transgender sensitivity training

Like all political correctness, this involves wearing an imaginary blindfold and telling yourself over and over that you don't see what you see.

1) You can't change your gender: Have you ever heard of Body Integrity Identity Disorder? Long story short, there are people out there who believe they're "supposed to" have less limbs. Maybe they want to get rid of an arm or a leg. The "problem" these people run into is that surgeons consider it unethical to remove a healthy, functioning body part and refuse to saw off their limbs. Instead, they just refer these people to a psychologist. That seems to make sense, doesn't it?

Yet, when we have people who want to mutilate themselves to "change their sex," we don't treat that as a mental disorder. Instead, we take it seriously. So seriously in fact, we have 9 year olds getting hormone treatments so they can pretend to be another gender.

If a client went to a doctor and said he thought he was a cow, we wouldn't send him to a surgeon to get horns and udders attached. Yet, you can no more change your sex than you can change into a cow. Even if you have a "sex change," your sex hasn't actually changed. A man who mutilates himself to look like a woman, still isn't female. He can't have a child. Very few men are going to knowingly date a man who's surgically mutilated himself to look like a woman. This is a terrible, horrible thing we're doing as a society to these mentally ill people. Instead of getting them the mental help they need, we're catering to their pathology. It's cruel, it's wrong, and a more compassionate society wouldn't wallow so deeply in political correctness that we'd allow people to do this to themselves.

I had brunch at a Seattle restaurant this morning and noticed they have a sign outside their bathrooms that says “we support gender diversity. Please use whichever restroom supports your identity”. America gets dumber every day. Seattle gets dumber at a much faster rate however.

“they want to take up Dylan’s cause, and they recommended to the Pagliacci owner that they have transgender sensitivity training.”

Such recommendations are, of course, orders. Goodness help the store owner if he doesn’t bow before the Gay Superhero League or whatever this group calls itself.

“Now, you understand the situation that the owner of Pagliacci Pizza is in. He’s got a place on Broadway, on Capitol Hill.”

I don’t get the reference here. I’m assuming this is an extra liberal area of Seattle?

Yeah, I agree. I found out a few months back that I am “Cis-Gendered”, meaning I’m straight.

I mean, I *knew* I was straight before last month (LOL), but I’ve only recently learned the “acceptable” terminology for “people like me”.

Good gravy, this country has lost its danged mind.
