Violence and its discontents

From Ricochet:
Kevin [Williamson]’s mistake was stating the biological fact that Laverne Cox is a man. As my new allies inform me, this is hateful and indeed “violence” against transgendered people. I blame kindergarten teachers who have for years trained children to “use their words” as opposed to violence, when apparently, there is no distinction to be drawn between the two.
Anyone who read "Anthem" in his/her/their/xyr youth will remember the fictional society's abolition of the pronoun "I" and the requirement that each persyn self-refer as "we."

I know a lot of gender neutral pronouns- but for some reason they all seem to raise hackles..

and speaking of violence-

Two of the great lies-

"violence never solves anything"

"it takes two to start a fight"

Won't be nuthin'."

Well the trouble with living in a free society, you will be offended. Especially over matters of etiquette, since after all this is more about forms of address than issues of flat biology.
