Note: Some people mood- and mind-alter through excessive cursing.
Others do it through petulant, gnostic rigidity about their pet jargon — which they reinvent constantly to keep other inferior people permanently on edge.
Those of us who have a long-standing experience of gender dissonance (some people don’t like the term ‘gender dyphoria’ because, as a medical term, it implies mental illness), may understand how to use this plethora of terminology correctly. But to the layman it is daunting; it causes so much uncertainty that everyday people just feel incapable of communicating with trans people. Even trans people are affected and fear making mistakes. A trans woman friend of mine was mortified when she accidentally introduced me to an audience as Chris rather than Chrissie.
This byzantine language game is beloved of the self-styled trans advocate, however. This bundle of self-righteousness, usually a non-trans (or ‘cisgendered’) person, likes nothing more than a chance to show off his or her intimate knowledge of the nomenclature of trans-sensitive words.
