Thank you for your input. I see where you’re coming from. I would like to explain more on my side too. I can see what you mean when it can affect others, but here’s what I see. Again, I’m not saying that you’re wrong. I don’t have to agree, but I will never tell someone not to do something that can help their mental health. Change their name, pronouns, gender whatever. I would never stand in your way. I won’t vote for it to be illegal. I won’t harass you, or bully you or call you names. Discussing why we don’t see eye to eye is different. But I won’t stop you. And I don’t think the government should have any say in peoples personal lives either. It’s no one’s business but your own.
It’s kind like how I agree with freedom of religion, that doesn’t mean being a Christian is going harm or inhibit someone else from being a Muslim. They don’t agree but one does not harm the other.
What does harm others is when you force your belief of others who don’t see things the way you do.
You can respect each other without harming each other. You can be kind without agreeing.
I think opinions themselves are harmful when people make them harmful like stopping someone from living the life they want even though it involves no one else.
