What's tasteless is that this person has correctly divined the vulnerability of the system, not that Janice is pointing it out.

But that's exactly the point - self-id is wholly vulnerable to bad actors. The only way to draw a line between them and those who need protections (rather than wanting to exploit protections) is to hold some standard besides self-declaration.

The question isn't how much distress do people feel; it's how much legal force we should give to people's subjective assertions over objective data. (I also think, having watched the Rachel Dolezal documentary, that she would fit the schema of racial dysphoria.)

I didn't notice before that one character relates the plot of The Outsider as a news story they've read about. And another seems to be reading what he calls a detective novel but is actually The Trial (he summarises it as a novel about a man arrested for something unexplained).

As I believe JS Mill wrote in On Liberty, "The principle of freedom cannot require that she should be free not to be granny pants."

For next year's show, the secret should be enormous volumes of pube contained in big pants

The Victoria's Secret show is very high up on the list of things I will never understand. Just because you CAN wrap women in dental floss and feathers doesn't mean you SHOULD wrap women in dental floss and feathers.

This is beneath you. Do you ever pay attention to feminists except to berate them? Have you considered the extreme privilege it takes to declare that a white male's feminine gender identity matters more than, say, a female honour-crime victim's right to privacy?
