The whole article was a contrivance, weakly inferential at best and, in the case of Anne Frank, violently offensive. We read Das Tagebuch in one of my German classes; Frank was a young girl, lonely in her terrifying isolation, and who was ultimately discovered and murdered. As were most of my great-grandparents.

And even if all these were well-substantiated, who cares?!? Do we really need this? So some historical figures were gay. Is that important? Not to me. About 5% of humanity has been gay as long as there have been people. It's the bigots on both sides who see this as an issue. I have several coworkers I suspect might be gay. I don't care. I don't ask them, I'm not going to date them, It's just not important.

But the things that the SJWs are trying to do to language tick me off. I detest the singular "they," the cis/trans distinction implies that half the world is transsexual while the reality is more like one in 30,000.

Don't we already have enough bifurcations? With cops killing black men and a cult of hate burning in a a third of the American populace, do we really need more ways to divide ourselves?
