Cis people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”
By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:
- The entire state of Rhode Island
- Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
- Pacific Islanders
- Celiac Disease
- Jewish people
For what it’s worth, there have been times that I’ve raised concerns regarding Jewish issues where I’ve been given that exact same excuse. But even if that weren’t the case, I’d still stand in solidarity with you.
