Re: “Resignation urged over Fayetteville Alderman John La Tour's gender challenge

Baker, it was stupid and insensitive of him to demand to know her gender. Similarly, it is stupid and insensitive of YOU to want to see a picture of her so that YOU can decide what gender she is. It's not up to you.

Do you know what a civilized person does if they can't tell what gender a person is? They keep their damn mouth shut. They keep their damn.mouth.shut. Simple, right?

They don't demand an answer from the person in question because 1) it's none of their business; 2) that person doesn't owe them an answer; and 3) it violates the "keep your damn mouth shut" rule. To ask (or worse, demand) an answer is boorish and simpleminded.

"Hyuk hyuk, look everyone, that there gurl looks lahk a boy" is right up there with "show me a picture so I can decide once and for all whether La Tour was justified in asking her gender." You simply have no moral, ethical, social, or legal standing to demand such a picture. Do you finally, FINALLY see?
