i would think that as the standard of offensiveness trickles down the pipes, black people would be on the list of the last people to find out this word is offensive.

I agree with the above quote. If the person was born male and just dresses the part with their "original genitals" they are cross dressers or transvestites, where if a person has gone through genital reassignment,  they are transsexual. I had no idea tranny was a slur...I honestly just thought it was an abbreviation of the term like homo(even though mostly used in a negative  context), hetero and tranny...now I know...dont want to get cut by any of the Chicago queens.

usually i'd indulge and try to be informative, but bhm and comments/posts (this go round) stating intended usage anyway after being made aware of the word's offensive nature are the reason why i don't bother with gender/sexuality here anymore.  no one should have to convince or talk people into respecting and treating others the way they would like to be treated

for those wondering why it's offensive, i'd simply reply, "look it up".  after that, realize people differ and keep the individual in mind. address them the way they would personally prefer.

theres a difference between 'addressing' a person… and simply using a word… 

if someone doesnt like the N word, I'm not gonna be like "hi niccca" but that doesnt mean ill never use the word 

I'm sure many could look up why they shouldn't use the N word.. 9 times out of 10 they won't stop using it. 
however if they were to get a sincere explanation from someone they 'know'… ya never know.. perhaps it could compel them to see it the way they see it.

does that reasoning even apply in this case?

youre comparing black people calling each other the n word to straight people calling trans people trannies?

or are you saying anyone can call you the n-word as long as they dont do it to your face?

I'm talking about using words period.. by anyone. and saying that theres a difference between using it.. and addressing a person how they want to be addressed. 

many people (black and white) won't use the word to address you.. or even in front of you.. but they still use the word. 
i nor anyone else can control what ppl say behind their backs 
but ppl are compelled/convinced for different reasons as to why they should never ever speak the word. 

same for tranny.. 

same for retard..

People should aim to not identify people by race or sexuality. It is rarely needed.


Ive been compared to an old white man because of my views and I agree with the bolded.  I had a co-worker who was somewhere between cross dressing and actually transgendered.  Not only was this particular word not used, but I was successful in avoiding the use of gender specific pronouns entirely.  We had other THANGS going on out there at that job so the topic of that persons sexuality and gender never came up.  No need to risk hurting peoples' feelings and putting them on the spot for a word that is not an integral part of the language.

This should be relatively simple to understand.  I didn't know that transgender people don't like the word and indeed thought it is what they refer to themselves as.  Given that a yt bish better not fix her lips in general conversation to say "everywhere I looked they were harassing ni..gers" no further explanation is needed.
