    I have not previously heard of this term ‘call-out culture’. Please allow me to pose this reply to be certain how I comprehend that term. Maybe I got it wrong, but I at least think I make a good point.

    – Somehow, if a trans person expresses an opinion of great discord to general trans perspective, others among their community ‘out’ them as trans as well as implement obstacles to their very existance. All this is done as retaliation for their words spoken / written.

    Seems we should all be entitled to our individual opinions and our right to express them no matter how much in agreement or disagreement. To me, the point of conversation is the exchange of ideas. This best occurs when people conduct civil discourse and express divergent ideas, not blather platitudes.

    It seems the right-wing conservative mind-set is the usual sector of society that takes pleasure chanting ‘consequences’ while the left-wing seeks understanding to find agreement even with disagreement.

    I may not appreciate much about Caitlyn Jenner and her political positions, yet I owe to her that she owns her right to safely express her opinions. Her walk along her path may have been financially cushier than most of us will ever know, yet she does walk that path same as we all do. So far, I have found no rule in the book that says we all must reach the same identical conclusions about every issue.

    I submit that we as our own community need to find better acceptance of all perspectives. There is already more than enough danger from the greater society.
