    It reminds me of a conversation I had with my grandson. I got lost at the cisgender part.

    It took me quite a while to accept 'cisgender', because I wondered why the 'cis' was even necessary. NOW I know!

    Yeah, I have a question. We use cis-gender and trans-gender so we don't offend anybody who is trans-gender. What if cis-gender offends me or somebody who is purely male or purely female? Does our opinion count? Are we allowed to be offended and if so, is that even considered?

    I had a similar conversation at NASSH a decade or so ago when the lecturer talked about CE and BCE and I asked why he hadn't used BC and AD, which were much more common at the time. He said he did it so it wouldn't offend anybody. I asked what if it offended some people to not use BC and AD and he told me that was a stupid question. So I guess my opinion doesn't count.

    That is the only lesson we need to learn from our betters. We must first be made to understand that we are not morally equal to them, we must then be made to understand that we are to accept that we are in a perpetual state of moral disorientation so that we can accept their overloardship on matters pertaining to our purse strings.

    I don't recall ever having the talk with parents or children.. but anyone growing up on a farm with animals catches on pretty early.

    You're both right! You are not fashionable or "woke" and your opinion is worthless. They are just waiting for us to die.

    I always thought that using CE and BCE has universal application, while BC and AD is purely a Christian calendar.

    I'm not sure how BC is much different than BCE, but yeah, AD is pretty 'pro-Christian'.
