Word games are the way of things in politics, and the culture war has weaponized every word. But sometimes, you have to take a step back and say, wait a minute. That’s not right.
Is this an example of that?
bi – prefix
Definition of bi-
2a: twice: doubly: on both sides biconvex
Despite the evolution of the culture, hey, I’m a trisexual trans penguin today, and my pronoun is Emperor!, you bigot – bi means two. The B in LGBT means that there are two sexes, and those who so-identify could be attracted to either or both of them.
If that turns you on, that’s your business (unless they are a minor). And if you think there should be more genders than Baskin Robbins has flavors, go for it if you want to waterboard the language to justify it, fine.
And be proud of that!
What grinds my gears is this, which I mentioned (again) yesterday.

Don’t claim some sovereign right to individualism and then deny it to others. The only thing that makes you is an assh*le. That or a Marxist, which automatically means you are an assh*le.
